Wrinkles will definitely appear with age but premature wrinkles can be tackled with a little bit of care and modern means.
Aging brings everything that deteriorates your facial value. Wrinkles start appearing on your forehead, around the eyes, sides of the lips, under the chin, etc. Loss of protein, mineral oils, vitamins, and collagen can turn your skin saggy, drooping and crinkled.
The common belief is that the first sign of aging that appears on your face is under eye wrinkles. It’s not necessary that wrinkles, dark circles and drooping bags under the eyes always strike you due to aging, rather many young girls face this issue because of stress, lack of sleep, dry skin, less liquid intake, wrong style of sleeping, and many other factors. The skin underneath our eyes is more sensitive and thinner than the rest of the facial hide. It gets easily affected by the external, as well as internal, lack of moisture as it doesn’t have oil producing glands. Fine lines under your eyes make you look fatigued, dull, and over aged in no time if you don’t fight them in early stages.
Under eye wrinkles or crow’s feet, would start bothering you in early age in response to many reasons. These reasons relate to your lifestyle, health issues, environmental effects, and extreme weather conditions also play a vital role in making your skin weak and susceptible to wrinkling.
UV RAYS: UV rays are one of the major sources that are building these distressing wrinkles and damaging effects on the area of your eyes. It’s not just that the sun harms the skin outwardly, but it also limits the production of collagen of your skin. Sun damage is the number one cause of wrinkles. Protect yourself from the harmful rays of the sun by wearing sunscreen with at least SPF 15. Apply sunscreen around 20 minutes before you head outside and make sure that you re-apply every couple of hours. We should be made to understand that protection from the sun at any age will reduce the risk of photoaging, actinic keratoses and squamous-cell cancer risk depends primarily on decreasing sun exposure during childhood. Treatment for wrinkles are less effective and may be more hazardous without adequate sun protection.
IMBALANCED HORMONES: Imbalanced hormones are another major aspect of getting the under eye wrinkles and aging issues before crossing twenties. Early menopause can also trigger the wrinkles to appear as it causes less production of elastin and collagen in the cells of skin layers.
GENETIC CHARACTERISTICS: People with genetic problems of weak skin and low formation of collagen in the skin cells have to face these problems more often. You cannot fight with your genetics but still can do some efforts to keep them restricted.
Other provokers that can cause to make you look aged and frazzled are the excessive intake of alcoholic drinks and smoking. Both practices can dry out moisture from your skin and diminish the healthy glow of your face.
