Finding the right anti-ageing eye cream can mean the difference between pronounced crow’s feet and subtle laughter lines. We explain how to help minimise the appearance of lines under the eyes and introduce you to our best eye cream for wrinkles.
What causes wrinkles under the eyes?
The skin grows thinner and loses elasticity with age (as collagen and fat levels naturally deplete), causing wrinkles to appear. As the skin around the eyes is thinner than the rest of the face, fine lines often appear around the eyes first.
Sun damage and environmental stressors
UV rays can break down the collagen in the skin, causing fine lines. Environmental stressors can also damage the skin barrier, resulting in premature wrinkles.
Dehydrated skin is a skin condition triggered by a lack of water. Skin often feels tight and flaky, while fine lines look more pronounced, particularly around the eyes.
Repetitive facial movements (frowning, smiling and squinting) can cause lines to appear prematurely under the eyes.
