Despite the claims of purveyors of various creams, dietary must haves, vitamin pills and other assorted so called cures, there is no proven way of avoiding the onset of eye wrinkles without the aid of surgery to delay the inevitable process.
Once you realize and accept this fact of life then you can take natures way to slow down the advent of eye wrinkles. After all, wrinkles around your eyes are one of the first give-aways that your ageing process is getting into full swing so the longer you can delay the inevitable the longer you will feel and look young.
The skin around the eyes is the thinnest and most sensitive of any part of the body. This applies to both men as well as women. Consequently it is this area of skin that will be the first to respond to any deficiencies in diet or lifestyle and to which we should take particular care.
Slow Down Eye Wrinkles With A Good Diet
Starting with diet, it is only common sense to point out that healthy eating habits are a must in keeping the body toned and your skin looking fresh and clear.
Omega 3, found in oily fish, is known to have a firming and moisturizing effect on skin, take a regular supplement containing this unless you like eating salmon and other oily fish every day. Eating fresh fruit and vegetables most days will also help the skin to stay firm.
However, no amount of sticking to fruit, vegetables and oily fish will slow down the onset of eye wrinkles without following an appropriate lifestyle.
Slow Down Eye Wrinkles With Good Management
Free radicals are believed to be major cause of skin wrinkling so it is most important to protect the area around the eyes from the suns’ UV rays, a major cause of these free radicals.
Wear good quality sun glasses covering as much of the area around your eyes as you can (forget about fashion, this is your body that you should be thinking about) and use a high factor sun screen around the eyes, not forgetting the rest of your body when ever you are exposed to the sun.
Smoking and being in a smoky atmosphere will also encourage free radicals, if you are serious about wanting to look young for as long as possible stay out of clubs and bars where smoking is permitted.
There is a school of thought that believes squinting hastens the advent of wrinkles around the eyes. True or not why take the chance? If you find yourself squinting, go get an eye test or, if in the sun, wear a wide brimmed hat to help your sun glasses keep the UV rays away from the area around your eyes.
It is virtually impossible to stay out of the sun, wind, smoky atmospheres etc. all of the time so a good anti oxidant skin cream containing only natural ingredients and rich in vitamin E and collagen should be applied, particularly before bedtime.
Collagen is the natural ingredient formed in our bodies that gives skin its elasticity. Over a period this gradually diminishes causing the inevitable sign of old age, our skin shrivelling and wrinkling the older we get.
Replacing the collagen naturally as best we can will have a far better and longer lasting anti ageing effect than the necessity of frequent and ongoing botox treatments, these days considered the easy way out. Collagen based dietary supplements may prove an aid in the skin revitalising process but bear in mind that, as yet, there is no scientific evidence that confirms this.
Stay looking young by eating healthily and taking precautions against sun and smoke exposure. This will in turn slow down those horrid eye wrinkles.
