Having aging eyes or fine lines seems as though it is just the sign of the times… or is it? Like it or not… signs of aging are bound to happen; but what if we told you there was a way to help slow it down. Many factors inhibit our skin to age, much of which are out of our control however with a few tips and tricks plus years of expertise to give you some insight as to what you can do to influence slower aging of your skin.
If you only have one takeaway from this article, let it be this: protect your skin from the sun. Whether you are on a beach vacation or running to and from the grocery store, applying a light layer of sunscreen in the morning can make all the difference. You can opt for a sunscreen to mix into your moisturizer or you can choose a sunscreen-based moisturizer. It shouldn’t stop there either! Try your best to wear protective clothing and polarized sunglasses when you get the chance. As much as your body needs a healthy dose of Vitamin D, overexposure to the sun can cause faster wrinkling, aging and in extreme cases, skin cancer. There is a fine line between too much sun and too little sun, so making sure you are getting the right balance is key.
Eye Cream. Eye creams drastically improve the overall look of “age” on your face. Your eye areas the first parts of your face to show age, so taking care of them should be pretty high on your journey to anti-aging. Even those with youthful looking skin should incorporate a good under eye cream into their skincare routine, it’s never too early to start investing in your skin!
Dehydration plays a huge role in the need for an under eye cream. As if your under eyes aging faster wasn’t enough, a lack of hydration around your eye area is frequent and something that gets frequently overlooked. Dehydrated skin in general causes wrinkles as well as a decrease of your skin’s elasticity, or what we like to call your “bounce”. Bright, full looking skin can still be achieved through the hydration of your overall body (you should aim for 15.5-11.5 cups of water a day) as well as the use of good moisturizers, serums and of course, under eye creams. You need to look for an eye cream that encompasses these three components: reduces the appearance of wrinkles, firms’ skin and diminishes dark under eye circles.

Because the skin under your eyes is the thinnest and most sensitive on your face, applying products with your ring finger is beneficial because it is your “weakest” finger, and it is less likely to apply too much pressure to your skin.
Lastly, make sure you are eating food that is GOOD for your body. Eating foods that are high in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help improve your skin’s elasticity and yes, even wrinkling. Some foods that encompass some of these properties are:
- Salmon (or other fatty fishes)
- Flax seeds
- Leafy Greens
- Red or yellow peppers
- Dark Chocolate (we’re excited about this one too!)
