Nighttime eye cream
Hydrating eye serum
Emollient eye cream with hyaluronic acid
Oil-based makeup remover
Select a nighttime eye cream that contains collagen-repairing peptides and retinol. Look also for Vitamin C, Vitamin E or idebenone, which are antioxidants that help protect the skin from sun and pollution damage.
Pat a pea-size drop of eye cream around your eyes each night with your ring finger. A heavy touch can cause collagen damage over time, and too much cream can create unwanted puffiness.
Apply a hydrating eye serum each morning to help improve moisture and prevent makeup from settling into fine lines. Pat an emollient eye cream with hyaluronic acid over the serum to plump skin and fill out wrinkles.
Apply daily sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection and a sun protection factor of 30 or higher. Wear sunglasses to prevent further sun damage.
Avoid scrubbing the skin around your eyes with washcloths, towels or makeup remover wipes. Instead, wipe gently and use an oil-based makeup remover to avoid capillary damage and further wrinkling.
Consult an optometrist to diagnose vision problems if squinting regularly, as squinting causes eye wrinkles.
Consult a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon for further treatment options, such as injectable fillers to plump out wrinkles or Botox to lift sagging skin. Such treatments can diminish wrinkles for an average of three to six months.
