Anti-aging For Wrinkles Around The Eyes

Anti-aging For Wrinkles Around The Eyes

Anti-Aging: Wrinkles Around the Eyes

Are you looking for anti-aging skincare for wrinkles around the eyes?  The first signs of aging usually start to show around the eyes before any other part of the body.

It is also the area that gets the most regular exposure to damaging UV rays AND has the least amount of protective factors, such as thinner skin and less oil production.

This is why it is important to address anti-aging to prevent wrinkles around the eyes BEFORE they start to show up as fine lines and prevent the existing fine lines from becoming wrinkles.

Wrinkles around the eyes are otherwise known as “Periorbital Aging”.



There are several types of wrinkles around the eyes.

The first ones are called “Dynamic Expression Lines”.  These are fine lines and can eventually turn into wrinkles and are formed when the skin creases over-and-over when we make the same facial expressions, such as: smiling, laughing, squinting, or frowning.

Dynamic Expression Line wrinkles are found most commonly around the forehead, eyes, and around the mouth.

The second type of wrinkles around the eyes are called “Gravitational Folds”.  These develop over time with age and affect the eyelids and skin under the eyes (under-eye bags).

Gravitational Folds develop when the Collagen and Elastin in our skin start to break down.

These types of wrinkles show more prominently on people with leaner-looking faces and thinner skin vs. people with plumper faces and thicker skin.

The third ones are called “Atrophic Crinkling Rhytids”.  Also known as the “11 Wrinkles” these are the vertical lines that form in between your eyebrows or down the center of your chest.

“11 Wrinkles” also form from the breakdown of Collagen and Elastin over time, but are MAINLY formed from overexposure to the Sun and UV rays.  UV rays release free radicals and free radicals breakdown Collagen and Elastin even more.

The best way to prevent Atrophic Crinkling Rhytid wrinkles is by using a sunscreen EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.



Using skincare products with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Niacinamide are great ways to prevent and treat wrinkles around the eyes.  They are anti-oxidants and neutralize free radicals from the UV rays.

PRO TIP:  For better absorption of anti-aging eye creams, eye gels, and serums, gentle exfoliation around the eyes is important.  It removes the dead skin cells so eye creams, eye gels, and serums can absorb deeper into the skin.

BUT regular exfoliation products are too harsh for the delicate, thinner skin around the eyes.

Use a gentle exfoliating powder for exfoliating around your eyes.  Image Skincare has a great product called the Iluma Brightening Exfoliating Powder which is gentle enough for the delicate skin around the eyes.

Other important anti-aging ingredients to look for in eye creams, eye gels, and serums are Peptides.  Peptides are actually chains of amino acids that make up the protein in our skin, like Collagen.  There are many different types of Peptides in many products.

Peptides also help stimulate and create NEW Collagen and Elastin and help prevent existing Collagen and Elastin from breaking down.

Humectants are another important ingredient to look for.  Humectants pull moisture from the air and bind it to your skin keeping your skin hydrated and looking more plumped up.

Humectants are even more important if you live in an arid climate (like Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, etc.)

Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant and is very unique.  We actually create Hyaluronic Acid within our bodies.  It’s in our skin, it’s a lubricant in our joints, surrounds our organs, and is in between the discs in our vertebrae.

Hyaluronic Acid molecules can actually hold up to 1,000x it’s weight in water bringing some serious hydration to your skin.

You cannot have an allergic reaction to Hyaluronic Acid and it cannot break you out.

As we age, we make less-and-less Hyaluronic Acid so it is important to add it back to your skin.  Using Hyaluronic Acid around your eyes helps plump up the skin and minimize and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

If you have sunken-in eyes or under-eye circles, Hyaluronic Acid is an ingredient you want to look for.

PRO TIP:  What is the easiest way to delay the aging process of your skin?  Start using anti-aging skincare products EARLIER.

You can target the breakdown of Collagen and Elastin that will eventually show up on your skin and prolong the aging process of your skin.  Here’s how:
