Are you worried about your eyes? Start taking care of it if you’re concerned about getting too soon! The skin in this area is fragile and sensitive, so it often shows the first signs of aging. Usually, this includes wrinkles, sagging, and dark circles under the eyes.
You might want to use an eye cream to keep this skin healthy and robust. Or a good skincare ingredient to tackle your under-eye wrinkles. At Beauty Boost Med Spa, we’re not only in charge of helping you discover these best components.
We’re also here to guide you in looking for the best “added” treatments to help you solve your under-eye wrinkle problem. Check out this blog post to see how we can help!
Adding Retinol To Your Daily Routine
Retinol is made from vitamin A, one of the most popular ingredients to fight age. It works to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles by making your body produce more collagen, which is something we all need for skin that looks full.
The sun, blinking, squinting, smiling, and other facial movements, as well as the passing of time, are the main things that cause under-eye wrinkles. A retinol-based eye cream can help keep the skin under your eyes looking smoother and younger.
You will notice a difference under your eyes if you use it daily. It’s pretty amazing how much better you can look after using retinol under your eyes every day for more than a year.
Keep Hydrated With Oil
Keeping the under-eye area well hydrated is essential because dry skin is more likely to get fine lines and wrinkles. On the other hand, a well-hydrated eye area will look healthier, younger, and fuller.
So apply a rich cream, and then use an oil to seal it effectively. The oil will stop water from evaporating, so the skin will stay moist and full. Besides, any oil can do, especially with argan, marula, sunflower—you name it.
Oil and water are the keys to keeping skin from getting wrinkles. It is a good choice for a moisturizer that can do more than one thing. You can also choose an oil that’s vegan, cruelty-free, and made from argan nuts that are ethically gathered and protected by UNESCO.
Serum with Hyaluronic Acid
Serums with hyaluronic acid help add moisture to the skin. When you drink water, the skin around your eyes gets fuller, and wrinkles are less noticeable.
You can choose your most comfortable serum during the day or night or try a recommended serum by your trusted dermatologist and friends. As long as it doesn’t hurt much of your skin, you’re free to explore anything!
Yep, vitamins are also a must in every ingredient. Vitamin D3 is a supplement that you take by mouth. This is different from the other vitamins on this list. There are different kinds of vitamin D used in skin care.
But vitamin D3 is the kind that works inside your skin. If you don’t get enough vitamin D, your skin may get inflamed, and your insulin may not work. This can make acne, rosacea, and eczema even worse.
Reduced insulin sensitivity can also make collagen stiff and old before its time, worsening wrinkles under the eyes. When you go out into the sun, you naturally get vitamin D and risk damage from free radicals. If you don’t get enough of this antioxidant, take a vitamin D3 supplement.
How to Avoid Wrinkles Under the Eyes
You must take precautions to stop more or new wrinkles from appearing under your eyes. The best way to avoid wrinkles under your eyes is to use sunscreen daily.
Sunscreen is essential because the eyelid’s skin is thin and more likely to be damaged by UV rays, which break down collagen. Here are other ways that you can also try.
Eat Healthy Foods
Again, drink a lot of water to keep your body hydrated and help you go to the bathroom regularly. Eat all the colors! Eating foods like berries, nuts, and dark green vegetables high in antioxidants helps keep the skin healthy.
Look for foods like salmon, avocado, and walnuts high in omega-3 fatty acids. These foods help maintain a healthy skin barrier, stopping transepidermal water loss.
Even though injectables are one of the best ways to eliminate wrinkles, we put this one at the bottom of the list to show that they’re not the only solution, especially for the sensitive under-eye area.
Botox and fillers are safe when given by a professional you trust. Botox stops the movement of the muscles that cause fine lines. You won’t get fine lines if you don’t move your muscles. Hyaluronic acid fillers volumize, smooth, and plump up lines that have stopped moving.
They fill in the hollows under the eyes and blend in with the skin to make it smoother and make wrinkles and shadows look less noticeable. Fillers can help reduce the look of wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, or bags under the eyes so that your skin looks younger.
Botox is a great way to fight the signs of aging. With this injectable, you can often eliminate lines under your eyes, but not permanently. Botox is used to make wrinkles less noticeable, but how it does that is important. These injectable drugs work by making muscles relax.
Beauty Boost Med Spa offers Botox, Dysport, and Dermal fillers to treat your under-eye wrinkles. Here’s a brief description of the three effective treatments.
Botox has been used in medicine as a treatment since the 1970s. It comes from botulinum toxin injected into the face during a non-surgical cosmetic procedure. This relaxes the muscles under the skin, which smooths out wrinkles.
More than 7 million Botox and Dysport procedures were done in 2017. This makes Botox the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world.
Dysport is a newer cosmetic treatment similar to the one before it. In 2009, the FDA in the US said you could use it to treat wrinkles. Dysport, also called abobotulinumtoxinA, is made from botulinum toxin, but the protein structure is slightly different.
Fillers are substances that look like gel and are put under the skin. Dermal fillers are meant to make the skin look smoother and fuller. They help “fill in” or add volume to places that have lost it.
We can put fillers in the temples, under the eyes, the cheeks, the nose, the smile lines, the lips, the chin, the jawline, and the hands. Some fillers can last between 6 and 12 months, while others can last between 2 and 5 years!
