Your eyes can tell it all: your moods, emotions, state of health, and even your age. The delicate area surrounding the eyes are the first to experience (and show) signs of aging. Here lies a great opportunity - it’s an anti-aging success story waiting to happen.
If you’re thinking of creating an age-defying skincare routine, it’s best to start or at least include the eye area. Since this zone is highly prone to skin aging, it’s a great way to know if you’re doing this anti-aging thing right.
Arm yourself with the right knowledge about skin aging around the eye area and be better able to fight the signs.
Why Is The Area Around The Eyes Prone To Skin Aging?
Imagine a grape starting out as plump and juicy and ending as a wrinkly raisin. This perfectly describes how the eye area goes through collagen loss and eventually, skin aging.
The skin surrounding your eye area is 10 times thinner than the rest of the skin on your body and it only gets thinner as you age. The eye area is also not capable of moisturizing itself naturally as it lacks the necessary oil glands. Dry skin leads to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, and with the skin being thin, these signs are even more prominent.
It’s because of these reasons (and more) that you need to give a special kind of attention and care to your delicate under eyes.
What Are The Common Signs Of Aging Around The Eye Area?
Here are the obvious signs that your eyes are giving away your age:
PUFFINESS AND EYE BAGS - Sleeping helps the body renew itself and not having enough may cause disruption in its processes, including the production of collagen. Where there is not enough collagen, the skin weakens making it sag and collect fluids, hence the puffiness and swelling. Puffiness doesn’t usually last that long but poor sleeping habits may make it a permanent problem.
WRINKLES AND FINE LINES - As you age, collagen production declines and affects the skin’s elasticity. Thinner skin makes collagen degrade faster, which is the case for the eye area. Years of facial gestures such as smiling, squinting, and laughing also cause the formation of lines on the corners of the eyes. An example is crow’s feet or the lines on the outer corner of the eyes.
DARK CIRCLES - You can tell by just looking at someone’s eyes if he/she is tired or didn’t get enough sleep. Collagen makes the skin look radiant and the lack of it - dark circles and shadows under the eyes are signs of collagen breakdown. And because the skin around your eyes sits on hollow eye sockets, if skin dehydration is not prevented, you can get that sunken, hollow look that adds years to your age.
How To Fight Skin Aging Around The Eyes
Signs of aging may vary with each decade of your life. It’s in your 30s that you get to experience real skin aging, particularly around the eye area. And because you already know that the skin around your eyes is most vulnerable, you may want to incorporate special steps in your regular skincare routine.
Try Under Eye Patches for Instant Effects
Add under-eye patches to your routine and experience the immediate benefits of this convenient eye treatment. The Project E Beauty rejuvenating Aqua Collagen Under Eye Patches are infused with collagen and botanical ingredients to refresh tired-looking skin. These specially shaped patches fit perfectly under the eyes to directly deliver hydration and collagen-boosting benefits. In just 20 minutes, have radiant, smoother skin with reduced lines, puffiness, and swelling for that well-rested look.
Choose an eye cream that works for you
As the under-eye area does not have oil glands to naturally moisturize it, a hydration boost is a must. Take note that this is not the typical moisturizer that you use on your face. Giving special attention to your eye area may mean looking for skincare products with eye-specific benefits. Look for ingredients that hydrate and prevent skin aging at the same time.
Give your eye area the care it deserves with the Project E Beauty Age Defender Eye Cream. This lightweight and non-greasy eye cream is specially formulated to fight against signs of premature aging around the eyes. Regular use visibly reduces puffiness, smoothens fine lines and wrinkles, and diminishes the appearance of dark circles. Great for all skin types from dry to oily.
Explore New Skincare Trends
Some skincare trends are worth trying. LED light therapy is a relatively new technology that utilizes the power of UV-free, non-thermal light energy to address a variety of skin conditions. NASA first discovered that visible red light in particular accelerates the healing processes of the body. Experience the healing benefits of light therapy and more with Project E Beauty’s Facial & Eye Photon Ultrasonic Device.
LED Light Therapy Devices You Can Try
What is LED light therapy?
LED light therapy is the use of UV-free, non-heating LED bulbs to treat a variety of skin
conditions. The light energy that penetrates the skin activates photoreceptors which then
triggers natural cellular processes such as collagen production, healing, and regeneration.
Red LED light therapy for the eye area is a safe and effective method to stimulate collagen production, the secret to young-looking skin. Here are Project E Beauty LED devices that you can use at home.
What it does: This handheld ultrasonic device delivers up to three million vibrations per second. These vibrations penetrate the dermis stimulating skin cells and boosting collagen production. Benefits include instant facelifting and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
The anti aging ultrasonic led light facial therapy also has LED therapy features. Red light boosts collagen production for anti-aging effects. Blue light best works for acne-prone skin and green light brightens complexion and helps improve circulation.
