The top six ways to reduce eye wrinkles and fine lines

Although we can’t be rid of eye wrinkles permanently there are a six key ways to help you reduce the appearance of fine lines and eye wrinkles, including:

1.   Avoid excessive sun exposure
Sun is the number one cause of wrinkles. When outside always remember to wear a protective sunscreen, that offers UVA and UVB protection like NIVEA’s Light Feel Daily Face Veil Sunscreen SPF 30.

2.   Apply a nourishing and protective eye cream
The skin around our eyes is far more delicate than the rest of your face. Specialised, gentle products like NIVEA’s Cellular Anti-Age Skin Rejuvenation Eye Cream contain active ingredients Hyaluronic Acid, Magnolia Extract, and Creatine to help visibly reduce fine lines and eye wrinkles and accelerate your skin's own cell renewal.

3.   Get your eyes checked
Squinting can form grooves that lead to wrinkles. Get your eyes checked to find out if you need contacts or glasses.

4.   Include more fish in your diet
Salmon and other cold-water fish are high in omega-3 – the essential fatty acid that helps prevent wrinkles by nourishing your skin and keeping it youthful and supple.

5.   Use eye make-up remover
Remove your eye make-up every night to prevent impurities that cause fine lines and under eye wrinkles from penetrating your skin. An eye make-up remover, like NIVEA’s Daily Essentials Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover, works to hydrate and protect the sensitive skin around the eye.

6.   Wear a protective day cream
A day cream with SPF protection and active anti-ageing ingredients visibly reduces wrinkles and prevents new ones from appearing. NIVEA’s Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Day Face Cream increases the natural Q10 and Creatine levels in your skin to help fight eye wrinkles with UVA protection and SPF 30.
