The skin around your eyes is unique. Due to being thinner to allow for fat pads that protect and cushion the eyeball, it’s much more sensitive and susceptible to damage.
As your delicate under-eye skin is stretched whenever you smile or frown, this can eventually result in the formation of fine lines. What’s more, sleeping on a certain side can have an effect too. Even when your face is relaxed, it’s important to remember that the skin on the eye contour is still constantly moving as you blink. To make matters worse, the tissue around the eye doesn’t have many sebum glands, so can lack moisture and lubrication. Over time, the elasticity is lost the skin begins to sag and eye wrinkles form.
Although this is a completely normal part of the aging process, there are steps you can take to minimise the appearance of these eye wrinkles.
