Fine lines and under-eye wrinkles are usually the first signs of aging and can develop as early as your twenties! And while wrinkles are an inevitable part of growing older, there are things we can do, including using our RapidEye® Firming Wrinkle Smoother, to work with the aging process.
Understanding the possible causes of wrinkles and fine lines under your eyes will help you discover the best ways to treat them while preventing further damage.
What Causes Under-Eye Wrinkles?
Well, the skin under the eyes is extremely thin, and as we age it starts to lose collagen. While this happens naturally, it can be most visible on the delicate skin around your eyes, resulting in first signs of fine lines or wrinkles. This loss of elasticity can also lead to puffiness and dark circles, too.
So, what are the factors that cause the fine lines or deep wrinkles under your eyes? Here are just a few common reasons:
Sun Exposure Sun damage will ultimately begin to accumulate in the form of fine lines and wrinkles.
Facial Expressions Repetitive facial expressions can also lead to lines and wrinkles in the eye area.
Rubbing Your Eyes Rubbing the area around your eyes can stretch the skin too much, leading to a breakdown of elastin and the formation of fine lines.
Dehydrated Skin Lack of water can lead to flakiness and feelings of tightness around your eyes.
Genetics Yes, your genes can determine the onset and severity of physical aging.
