Author and activist Maya Angelou once made a distinction between aging and growing up. “Most people don't grow up. Most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.”
We’ll add one more to what she’s listed and called aging: wrinkles. For many, wrinkles are an unwelcome sight while some embrace these unsightly creases with pride, likening their wrinkles to battle scars — testaments to overcoming life’s many obstacles.
Should you be afraid of wrinkles?
You likely have your own opinion formed about wrinkles. Chances are, you don’t like seeing your wrinkles, that’s why you’re skimming through this article. The root causes of facial wrinkles are plenty:
• sun exposure
• aging skin
• chronically dry skin
• poor diet and lack of exercise
• chronic inflammation
• poor skincare habits
• repeated facial expressions
There are very specific reasons too why, more often than not, wrinkles first become noticeable around your eyes:
• skin is thinnest around the eyes
• characterized by the absence of fat layer
• involved in almost every facial expression that you make
Knowing these facts, should you really be afraid at the sight of a new wrinkle? Unequivocally, no but, you do have to be concerned when you’re only 20 and you’re already seeing lines etched across your face and, when you’re seeing too may new creases over a short period of time. These are signs that you must be doing something wrong or, there’s a basic skincare step that you’re totally missing out on.
Still, with the robust treatment choices within your reach, who’s afraid of wrinkles?
Sure fire ways to say “bye, bye” to wrinkles.
Whether your wrinkles are on your forehead or under your eyes, there are wrinkle care treatments that will work out for both. However, more care must be taken when tackling skin around the eyes for reasons already outlined above.
That said, here are your top choices for treating under eye wrinkles, depending on the results and time you got:
For immediate improvements.
You can do this right now and we bet you you’ll see improvements in the appearance of your wrinkles in a flash. We know we got your attention. Can anything else beat makeup for instant wrinkle smoothening? Apparently, yes.
There have been live demos about creams that instantly smoothen out pimples. These are creams that contain argireline, a pep tide that numbs the facial muscles and works in much the same way as Botox does. Easy results, however, quickly disappear as well. Use these creams in tandem with this easy wrinkle improving makeup trick:
Step 1: Cleanse, tone and treat your skin. Enhance better cream absorption by removing debris from the surface of your skin. Use serums and moisturizers to plump up your skin. Make sure to use only eye cream for skin under and around your eye area.
Step 2: Cover and conceal. Skip the thick foundation. These products only seep into the cracks and make your wrinkles more visible as the hours go by. Instead, apply a BB cream. Use a concealer sparingly and only when you need to. For best results, use a BB cream with shimmer on it so that the light fools the onlooker’s eye and practically makes your under eye wrinkle disappear.
For improvements in the short and medium term.
Botox and dermal fillers are viable options. A Botox will numb your muscles to stretch out your skin. Dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid or collagen, on the other hand, plump up your skin and improves your skins moisture content and its ability to hold water.
Other options include laser treatments, radio frequency and chemical peeling. These procedures often take several sessions over a course of several weeks or even months before visible improvements become noticeable. Add to that the possibility of downtime immediately following each treatment session which can last up to 48 hours before skin conditions improve.
For improvements over the longer term.
Whatever the causes of facial wrinkles may be, longer term improvements may only be achieved with a combination of two factors. The first is regularly practicing a proper skincare routine, that includes using sunscreen and products specially made for aging skin. The other involves lifestyle adjustments from the food you eat down to your daily activities.
You can’t hate wrinkles forever but, who can blame you for wanting to get rid of them? Now that you have a list of viable solutions, all that’s really left for you to do is to choose what’s right for you.
