I’ve been testing eye wrinkle treatments for over 35 years. The skin around my eyes was not aging well.
And by 25, I knew I was going to need a good under eye treatment plan.
Check out these 4 simple treatments that worked for me, along with my before and after pictures.
By the time I was 40, I began looking into alternative solutions besides the standard drug-store eye wrinkle creams.
Alternative solutions like:
So, if your eyes seem to be aging faster than the rest of your face, then consider checking out some of these under eye treatments listed below.
While an eye serum is only a temporary solution for under eye wrinkles, it does make my eye area look smoother and the skin look less crepey right away!
And it gives me the quickest results. Some instant satisfaction, while I wait for the other options to start working. Creams, massages and eye exercises take time to work.
There are plenty of under eye lifting serums that can help temporally "hide" and reduce the look of under eye wrinkles and puffiness.
Trust me, I've tried them all!
Check out my comprehensive comparison/review of the top most popular under eye puffy serums & cream – with pictures.
While this treatment takes time to see results (several months), it did help smooth some of the fine lines and tiny wrinkles under my eyes.
Everyone has "aging trouble areas" on their face. For me, it was under-eye wrinkles and crow's feet. So after a few months of doing facial exercises, I realized I still needed more help in this area.
For my under eye wrinkle issues I contacted, Carolyn (the owner/creator of CFF exercise program) who gave me a special a bonus exercise (see below) to be used in conjunction with her regular facial exercise program.
As you can see in the photo above (10-12 weeks into the program) the change is very subtle, but I do see an improvement.
I expect it to continue improving as long as I keep doing the exercises.
Here is what the bonus exercise looks like.
This massage also alleviates dark circles and under-eye puffiness.
So, an example of a weekly schedule would be:
Worried that this technique will stretch the skin?
According to Dr. Frederick M. Rossiter, professor of anatomy and physiology, if done properly, this technique can help strengthen the muscle and smooth out the skin.
Dr. Rossiter explains that the muscles of the face go through the skin (this is what allows us to make facial expressions).
So, if we contract the facial muscles first, then slide your fingers or hands across taut skin, we not only firm-up underlying muscles but the skin too. Click here to read - How to Achieve the Build you Want Using the Right Touch.
NOTE: Face exercises also helped other parts of my face. Look at the before and after pictures of my sagging neck. The improvement is remarkable!
Products that contain anti-aging/anti-oxidants can help protect the eye area from further aging, increase cell turnover, and encourage healthy skin regeneration.
Some powerful anti-aging ingredients include:
Retinols - I like over-the-counter retinols because they're not as harsh as prescription Retin-A, but still help encourage exfoliation and skin cell turnover. You can read more about them here Retinol Cream Reviews.
Copper Peptides - Research shows that copper peptides can help repair damaged aged skin. 1, 2 You can read more about the benefits of copper peptides for skin here...
NOTE: If you decide to use both (retinols and peptides) you should not use them at the same time, or (for those with sensitive skin) on the same day. You can alternate days, or apply retinols at night (which is always best) and use peptides in the morning.
I love a good, super hydrating, but light moisturizer that's free from chemicals, fragrances and other "junk".
I've been using this moisturizer for over 12 years and just can't find one that beats it in terms of quality and hydrating.
Plus, I hate moisturizers that have all kinds of smells and perfumes! Who wants to put perfumes on their under eye skin??
This Moisturizer Plus is pH balanced, mostly organic, and scent free. And, it can be used for the whole face.
No matter what eye wrinkle treatment I use, I ALWAYS apply my instant eye lifting serum on top of my eye products and I get fabulous results every time.
Even though it's just an instant temporary fix - it seems to make the whole under eye area look tighter and smoother. It even helps blur those dreaded crow's feet which are so hard to get rid of naturally, without Botox.
