Some call them “crow’s feet” and other call them “smile lines.” No matter how you refer to the fine lines under eyes, they make you look older. These fine lines begin to form in your youthful years. Squinting, sun damage, smiling and smoking can all cause these wrinkles to begin. Even sleeping on your side, pressing your face against a pillow can result in eye-wrinkles.
Treating Fine Lines Around the Eyes
One of the best ways to treat fine lines under the eyes is to use a hydrating eye cream. The best eye cream for fine lines includes hyaluronic acid, a powerful hydrating and moisturizing ingredient that holds up to 1000 times its weight in water. Look for products for under eye lines treatment, such as algae extract, which tightens up the skin and stimulates the production of collagen.
Using an Eye Cream
Your eye cream typically goes on after you use toner on your face, but before you put your moisturizer on. Some eye creams can be used as a moisturizer for your whole face. Use eye creams in the morning and evening to get the best results. Try not to sleep on one side all the time.
Preventing Fine Lines Under Eyes
Don’t stop smiling to avoid getting fine lines. Instead, deal with the harmful substances that cause them. Use sunscreen when you are out in the sun. Add a hat and sunglasses to help protect your eyes when the sun is the strongest, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Keep your skin hydrated, inside and out. Drink plenty of water. Stop smoking, for your skin’s sake, your lungs and your heart.
