Eye wrinkles or crow’s feet can start showing themselves when you’ve hit your 20’s. Don’t worry; those pesky lines that appear around your eyes just mean that our skin’s collagen levels are depleting. Wrinkles can also come about if you pull or tug at your delicate eye area pretty frequently, so if you’re guilty of doing that, you might want to stop.
However, crow’s feet could make you look older and more tired than you are, which is why it’s essential to prevent the formation of wrinkles before they start getting worse.
Want to know how to erase those eye wrinkles? Read on to find out!
Try Products Infused with Caffeine
Caffeine is an anti-inflammatory that can give your skin that boost of energy so that you get to enjoy that glow.
This ingredient can also reduce cellulite, contains antioxidants, and boost collagen production. This is perfect if you want to lessen the appearance of crow’s feet.
Free radicals are one of the key causes of wrinkles. You can reduce the number of free radicals produced by your body by using skincare products that include antioxidants, much like those found in caffeine.
Lavelier’s Fine Line Eye Serum has the goodness of both caffeine and Hyaluronic Acid. It will help stimulate collagen production in your delicate undereye area while keeping it hydrated at the same time.
This Lavelier Fine Line Eye Serum is very lightweight and will help restore the skin around your eye area. It’ll leave your eyes looking plump and youthful while diminishing the appearance of fine lines.
Make Retinol Your Best Friend
At Lavelier, we try our best to formulate effective products, which is why we’ve developed the Eye Firming Concentrate with retinyl palmitate. It pairs perfectly with the Lavelier Fine Line Eye Serum. Retinyl palmitate is the ester of retinol and is a much gentler alternative for your delicate undereye area.
But, what is retinol? Why is it such a cult favorite in the skincare industry?
A derivative of vitamin A, retinol will help speed up skin cell metabolism and stimulate collagen production. As a result, your skin will look plump and smooth. Basically, retinoids slow down the breakdown of collagen and thicken the deeper layer of the skin (or the dermis).
Want radiant skin? We’ve got your answer: retinol!
Retinol and its derivatives make way for new cell growth on the surface of your skin by causing the cells on the epidermis to rapidly turnover. It also has exfoliating properties. This makes it a handy ingredient in unclogging pores.
However, you need to exercise caution when using retinol. Why? Because it can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. It’s a good idea only to use retinol-based products at night. This lessens the risk of irritating and damaging your skin. Don’t forget to load up on the SPF when you’re out and about in the daytime!
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!
We can’t stress how important it is to moisturize your under-eyes if you want to diminish or prevent the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dehydrated and dry skin is more susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles. Maintaining the hydration of the eye area will promote the appearance of a more youthful, plump appearance.
That’s why it’s crucial to use products that can deliver the dose of much-needed hydration that your skin requires.
The Lavelier Fine Line Eye Serum contains a hydrating formula made from marine botanicals and Hyaluronic Acid. It will effectively moisturize your dehydrated under eyes.
Hyaluronic Acid, a powerhouse ingredient in skincare, can aid in increasing your skin’s moisture content as well as skin elasticity. It will also improve your skin’s texture, making it smoother to the touch.
Did you know that over 50% of your body’s hyaluronic acid percentage is present in your skin? Unfortunately, as we age, the hyaluronic acid levels in our skin deplete, leading to the formation of wrinkles.
On the bright side, hyaluronic acid also has some anti-aging benefits. It can reduce wrinkle depth, which leads to smoother skin, increased skin firmness, and improved skin elasticity.
Glycerin, found in the Lavelier Fine Line Eye Serum, is also a great hydrating ingredient. It’s a humectant, meaning that it keeps the skin moist. Using it will enhance skin hydration, relieve dryness, and revitalize the skin’s surface. It also has emollient properties, which make it an effective moisturizer.
Gently Tap Your Eye Area When You’re Slathering on Your Eye Products
Remember when we said being too rough on the skin around your eyes could cause wrinkles?
Well, we weren’t joking! That’s why we advise everyone to tap the product into their skin gently instead, so you won’t have to struggle with newly-formed lines in your undereye area.
As an added benefit, daily gentle exfoliation of the eye area helps the skin look younger and more radiant. It removes dead skin cells and prepares the skin for a smoother, brighter appearance.
It’s also beneficial to scrub the skin around your eyes because this encourages collagen production. That way, your skin will have more elasticity, which means the skin bounces back quickly after lines are formed while smiling or squinting.
To apply your eye cream or your Lavelier Fine Line Eye Serum, start at your eye socket bone. Tap the formula with your ring finger, and work your way around to the crow’s feet up to the brow bone, and around to the base of the hairline.
Vitamin E is the Way to Go When Combatting Wrinkles
Vitamin E is probably the most versatile ingredient in the skincare-sphere because it has so many benefits. It gives your skin extra moisturizing and keeps it hydrated. Vitamin E also lessens skin wrinkles while being restorative and soothing to the skin, making it a great anti-aging ingredient.
Besides that, Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, so applying it topically onto your skin will definitely help improve and soften the look and appearance of any wrinkles that way pop up.
If you struggle with dark circles under your eyes, fret not! Vitamin E can help brighten those dark circles effectively.
Since powerful antioxidant properties help defend your skin against free radicals and reduce UV damage, vitamin E oil effectively fights off both free radicals and dark marks.
The great news is that our Lavelier Eye Firming Concentrate contains Vitamin E, so try pairing it with our Lavelier Fine Line Eye Serum for some solid wrinkle-busting action.
Try Adding Some Facial Massages to Your Routine
Facial massages help increase the flow of oxygen and blood to our skin. Besides, this has the added benefit of reducing puffiness. It also gives the skin a brighter appearance.
As well as improving the body’s elasticity, the massage increases collagen production, which helps to prevent the formation of wrinkles. There are several massage techniques out there that you can try when applying your Lavelier Fine Line Eye Serum.
Supplement Your Skin with the Goodness of Collagen
Collagen is one of the primary constituents of your skin. This is important because it contributes to skin firmness and may also help with elasticity and hydration. Unfortunately, the more you age, your body produces less collagen, causing dry skin and wrinkles to appear.
In another study, women who drank a beverage containing a collagen supplement regularly for 12 weeks had enhanced skin hydration and a substantial reduction in wrinkle depth compared to a control group.
Collagen’s’ wrinkle-reducing effects can also increase your body’s natural collagen production.
To fully enjoy the incredible benefits of collagen against fine lines and wrinkles, check out the Lavelier Rapid Eye Collagen Contour. It comes with an applicator that delivers the product nicely and evenly to your under eyes to target those pesky creases.
Don’t forget to supplement your application with the Lavelier Fine Line Eye Serum if you want some more heavy-duty wrinkle-smoothing action.
Try “Botox-in-a-Jar” for the Ultimate Cure Against Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Want to rejuvenate your under eyes? Look for a product that contains Acetyl Hexapeptide-8.
This peptide compound, often known as “Botox in a Jar,” is used to diminish the appearance of wrinkles. Actively rebuilding the skin’s essential protein, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is beneficial for reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Also known as Argireline, it is a synthetic peptide derived from a protein found in Botox. It’s typically found in anti-wrinkle and anti-aging lotions and serums. Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 works similarly to Botox, but it doesn’t require injection, making it a considerably more versatile and safe medication.
The serum is administered to the desired area and is absorbed into your skin’s membranes, limiting muscle activity and wrinkling. Argireline, like Botox, tightens the skin and minimizes wrinkles caused by tight movements like smiling and squinting. This keeps the skin from producing new wrinkles over time while also giving it time to repair and smooth over any existing wrinkles.
This ingredient has loads of benefits because it can lift and define without being too invasive. In addition, it provides rapid firming and lifting results, so you can be sure that your wrinkles will fade away with regular use of this ingredient.
Along with Sodium Hyaluronate, Lavelier’s Rapid Eye Collagen Contour harnesses the power of Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 to relieve fatigued-looking under eyes while also smoothing out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Pair it with the Lavelier Fine Line Eye Serum, and you’re all set!
Lastly, Don’t Leave Out Your SPF!
All of the products and steps above can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but it’s crucial to remember that the best therapy is prevention.
Always remember to apply SPF before leaving the house in the morning. Do this after applying your Lavelier Fine Line Eye serum. SPF is key for preventing wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, which are two more serious side effects of sun exposure. In addition, you could also experience the harsh damage of collagen loss if you expose your skin to too much sun.
That is why dermatologists usually advise people to use sunscreen. If you’ve been looking for a new favorite sunscreen, try Lavelier’s Divine Day Defense SPF 30. Combine your SPF with a good pair of protective sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV damage while also preventing you from squinting excessively.
While it is important to use skincare products that will help diminish your undereye wrinkles, prevention is always better than cure.
Besides the usual routine, drinking lots of water and eating healthy are also steps you can take to attain great skin.
Good skin comes from years of caring for your skin and carrying out good skincare habits, on top of using products that target your skin concerns.
From wearing sunscreen every day without fail, to ensuring that your skin is adequately moisturized, every step counts when it comes to skincare.
