What causes wrinkles under the eyes?
Wrinkles under the eyes make you look older... Causes of wrinkles and skin care measures you can take to prevent wrinkles.
Because the skin around the eyes is thin, wrinkles can form in a short period of time due to a combination of various causes. To be aware of prevention, let's review the causes of wrinkles under the eyes.
Dryness under the eyes can cause the formation of fine wrinkles called crepe lines. The area around the eyes is characterized by low sebum production and thin skin, which can easily dry out. Dry air and the use of cleansers that are too strong can cause the skin to lose its moisture and elasticity.
Prolonged use of computers and smartphones is a cause of eye strain. If you spend all day on your smartphone or have a desk job, wrinkles are likely to appear under your eyes.
Physical stimulation such as friction
Rubbing the eyes vigorously can cause wrinkles because friction removes moisture from the skin and disrupts its texture. Even if your eyes itch, do not rub them, but use anti-itch medication. If you have a habit of rubbing your eyes immediately after waking up in the morning, it is important to wash your face before doing so.
Wrinkles under the eyes can be improved with care
Reduce friction in skin care as much as possible
Care should be taken to avoid friction around the eye area during cleansing, washing, and moisturizing. When cleansing and washing your face, wash gently and carefully with your fingers. Also, during moisturizing care, it is important to apply milky lotions and creams carefully, rather than applying them all over.
Thoroughly moisturize the skin
To prevent dryness under the eyes, carefully apply moisturizing care to the crease of the eye. Careful moisturizing with lotion, serum, milky lotion, or cream will help reduce the effects of dry air and friction.
Massage to improve blood circulation
Eye strain reduces blood circulation around the eyes. It is important to gently massage the eye area to stimulate blood circulation. Use an eye cream specially designed for the eye area to improve sliding and then massage gently and carefully.
Be aware of facial expression habits
When we smile, wrinkles appear under our eyes. If the skin has elasticity, the wrinkles will disappear as the skin returns to its original expression, but if the skin has lost elasticity, the wrinkles may become habitual.
Wrinkles around the eyes can make people look older and more tired than their actual age. Dryness caused by friction and incorrect washing of the face and the effects of UV rays can cause wrinkles under the eyes, so it is important to pay attention to them on a daily basis. It is important to improve wrinkles by moisturizing, UV care, and correcting facial expression habits. While gently and carefully washing and cleansing your face, massage and moisturizing care for the eye area will help to prevent this problem.
