Our daily life effects how we age, specially around the eyes. The skin covering our eye muscles is rather thin, making it subject to easy aging such as puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles, fine lines and sagging.
How our eyes age
Puffiness – This can be hereditary although other factors like allergies, pollution and topical irritants can trigger inflammation which makes the eyes look puffy. Now there is fluid build up, lymphatic drainage, and blood flow slows down. Both these factors compromises supply of oxygen resulting in collagen and elastin loss.
Dark circles – This happens because the thinning of the skin, loss of collagen and fat in the area. The skin becomes more translucent, the blood vessels under the eyes become more obvious. This gives the appearance of dark circle.
Lines and wrinkles – All the expressions we make, emotional (Laugh/cry ), environmental (sun, Allergies), genetics, smoking.
Sagging – As we age there is a loss of collagen and elastin. Also, the fatty tissue of the eyes lose their plumpness as well. Unfortunately, now there is little support for the skin to snap back into shape and sagging happen
What to Do At Your Age
