The eyes are the focal point for the face. They’re also one of the first places of the body to show signs of aging.
The good news? It’s easy to prevent, stop and treat those signs, helping you maintain a youthful look. Here’s how:
Get your 8 hours
It’s no secret sleep can do wonders for the body, but it can also do wonders in the fight against aging. A well-rested pair of eyes means less puffiness and fewer dark circles, which can exacerbate wrinkles and dull the overall look of your eyes.
The skin around your eyes is one of the most delicate patches on your body. Easily malleable, regular rubbing and tugging is a one-way ticket to wrinkling. If you must rub, be gentle!
Be proactive with your allergy medicine
Seasonal allergies are another major culprit of dark circles and puffiness, and itchiness leads to damaging rubbing. Stay on top of taking your allergy medication in peak seasons to keep the effects on your eyes to a minimal.
Fight sun damage!
We can’t preach sunscreen and sun protection enough, but neglecting the skin around the eyes is easy to do. While you need to be careful not to get sunscreen in your eyes, be sure to lightly apply around them and invest in a large pair of sunglasses with high UV protection.
Get your eyes checked
It’s easy to let those regular eye appointments slip through the cracks, but letting your prescription go too long–or waiting too long to get glasses in the first place–isn’t just bad for your overall eye health. It’s also an easy way to find yourself with squinting-induced wrinkles.
Wear the right make-up
When wrinkles do strike, make-up can easily draw attention. Avoid cakey powders and concealers, which settle into wrinkles, making them stand out.
Start an anti-aging regimen
Even when you play it safe, wrinkles are bound to happen as the natural aging process. That’s why adopting a skincare regimen with anti-aging ingredients is key to keeping your skin looking youthful.
