From small lines of expression to bulging bags of fat, the eyes age in different ways and reveal, like no other part of our face, the passage of time. According to dermatologists, “the skin of this area is the thinnest of the entire skin surface, it is only five millimetres thick, which is why it is very sensitive to the passing of years, to the constant movement and environment. The dermis, which is the ‘plump’ with collagen, does not have much function in this thin area.”
Tired eyes, sunken eyes, drooping eyes… Problems that affect the eye area can, in many cases, be prevented and, through surgical techniques, reversed. The essential thing is to know what these problems are and what causes them. The wrinkles of expression. The wrinkles of the outer edge of the eyes correspond to expression lines and are usually the first visible sign of skin aging. Its cause is small muscle contractions, which occur with laughter and other expressions, which, repeated over time, derive in marks on the skin.
The sun is another culprit, since the exposure to the rays reduces the collagen and elastin levels of the skin, making it more brittle. In addition, it stimulates the movement of squinting (to avoid glare), which is an important cause of the so-called “crow’s feet”. Prevention: Use specific creams for the area, which contain antioxidants and other protectors against damage caused by free radicals, to keep the area hydrated and flexible. In addition to serums rich in vitamins and stimulators of collagen and elastin, which act by tensing the skin.
Cream shadows are used for wrinkled, dry or aged skin. Use tones that illuminate the arch of the eyebrow to raise the look. Likewise, in the eyelids we must prefer the shadows that go from peach to pink, linked with a touch of gold to generate a pearly effect. Pastel shades soften imperfections. We’ll evaluate some information regarding the most innovative methods.
Darkened areas around the eyes
In nine out of ten cases, the lack of sleep is not the cause of dark circles, although evidently little sleep can emphasize them. Dark circles or violaceous colour have to do with genetic factors and are related to the thin skin and transparency of the venous vessels in the area under the eyes, which are bluish in colour. They can also be produced by the accumulation of fat lumps, which cause the light is not reflected correctly, creating a dark shadow. Solar exposure can aggravate the problem, promoting the creation of melanin, which results in a greater pigmentation of the skin and brown circles under the eyes. Prevention: Increase the consumption of vitamin K, orally or topically with specific products, because it helps the vascularisation, reduces bruising and benefits the circulation, preventing the formation of “pools” of venous vessels under the eyes.
Another effective ingredient is Haloxyl, which strengthens the capillaries, reduces swelling and could even make the skin thicker under the eyes. In addition, it is key to use special solar factor for the area and glasses. Grooves and bags. The area under the eyes is composed mainly of fat (orbital fat) and tissue. Over the years, these components thin and tend to disappear, creating real holes under the eyes and making them look emaciated. In addition to being produced by a natural condition, these furrows may be the result of poorly performed surgery in which too much fat has been removed. On the contrary, when fat and tissue accumulates in the area, swelling and bags appear.
The holes and swelling tend to coexist, giving the eyes a tired look. And, although surgical solutions exist, they are difficult to disguise. These are hereditary problems and an inherent element of aging. Prevention: Although there is no 100% effective way to prevent bags, sleeping with the head slightly raised helps reduce the accumulation of fluids in the area. In addition, it is recommended to avoid excess salt, which retains even more liquids.
Fallen eyelashes and eyebrows
Like the hair of our whole body, the eyelashes and eyebrows have their life cycle, they are not eternal, and they are renewed permanently although not at the same pace as the scalp. A tab that falls, for example, is recovered in ten months. Eyelashes and eyebrows also age, which translates into fragility and shortage of hair in the area and, in the case of the eyebrows, in the appearance of grey hair. Prevention: Artificial eyelashes are an option, but there are also growth stimulants.
The newest product, recently approved by the FDA for medical use, is Bimatoprost, which appeared as a derivative of another medication used by ophthalmologists for glaucoma. This product stimulates the growth of the eyelashes, lengthens them in 16 weeks. One way to prevent the loss of eyelashes is to avoid curlers, because they tear or cut them. The specialists recommend in his replacement to perform a professional curling about three times a year. And the eyelash masks? If there are no allergies, there is no contraindication as long as it is removed at night with specific products, such as micellar water.
