Our eye care guide for treating eye bags, under-eye wrinkles, dark circles, and other signs of aging aroud the eye area

Eye Care

Getting older is a part of life and as you age, your skin's ability to restore it's barrier decreases over time. The first and most affected area is typically around the eyes because of the thinness of the skin. As a result, many people start to see crow’s feet, appearance of dark circles, fine lines, eye bags, wrinkles, and other signs of aging to start developing as early as their 20s.With time, you begin to develop two types of eye area wrinkles: dynamic and static.

Dynamic wrinkles develop between the corners of the eyes, eyebrows, and forehead. These wrinkles are formed from contracting muscles when speaking, smiling, and other facial expressions. When the facial muscles are in use, dynamic wrinkles take form and settle in. Dynamic wrinkles are natural and unpreventable. They become more pronounced with time as we are constantly using the muscles to express ourselves to the world around us.

Static wrinkles are also natural, but we can slow down the development of them. These wrinkles are formed from sun exposure, poor diet, smoking, lack of sleep, and other unhealthy habits. Static wrinkles remain even if facial muscles are not in use, so it is critical to take care of yourself—both internally and externally.
