I’ve been testing eye wrinkle treatment remedies and products for over 35 years and consider myself a bit of an expert in this area. Check out these 3 simple treatment tips that worked for me.
So, I’d like to share three under eye wrinkle treatments that worked for me and show you some before and after pictures.
The skin around and under my eyes was not aging well. By age 25, I knew I was going to need a good under eye treatment. And 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
We all know getting rid of wrinkles completely is not really possible. Even with a full face lift, many women still have issues with wrinkles, lines, or crinkly skin under the eyes.
But, there are a few things you can do to lessen the look of under eye wrinkles and crow's feet. Here are a few things I found that worked for me.
1. Facial Exercises - While this treatment takes time to see results, it did help smooth some of my under eye lines.
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 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. The key things to remember when you do this exercise is:
NOTE: You want the under eye muscle and skin as tight as possible while your fingers lightly "slide" across the skin from one side to the other.
Repeat this full slide across the eyes for a total of 10 slides.
Repeat this full slide around the eyes for a total of 10 slides. You have now made a total of 20 slides. 10 in one direction and 10 in the opposite direction.
Repeat the same process across the upper eyelids too. Make sure to add more moisturizer or oil first.
As suggested in the directions, I performed this every morning and night after washing my face. Once I started to see improvements, I reduced the frequency to only 3-4 times a week in the morning.
Update: Eye wrinkle treatment result 16 months later
This picture was taken about 16 months later. When I don't smile I can hardly see any lines under the eyes.
Keep in mind that this eye wrinkle treatment bonus exercise is to be done in conjunction with a regular weekly facial workout. This is important not only for good results and a more lifted face and neck, but to make sure everything stays in balance.
2. Eye Lift Serum - 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.
There are plenty of under eye lifting serums that can help temporally "hide" and reduce the look of under eye wrinkles and puffiness (and trust me) I've tired them all!
But I hated how they felt once they dried.
Yes, they smoothed out the skin, but they felt aweful and looked worse once I moved my face or smiled. Most serums would flake, felt tight, dry, or had a glue-like consistency.
But in 2012 I found an eye lift serum called EES and it has been my favorite treatment to help reduce the look wrinkles and fine lines. It's only temporary, but it does last for about 10-12 hours, even after working-out.
What about puffy eyes? Yes, this serum helped hide my puffy eyes too. Want to see how well this serum works for puffy eyes? Check out this video of my friend has very puffy eyes and agreed to let me video her before and after transformation.
3. Eye Moisturizers – A regular eye moisturizer won't make a drastic difference in terms of sagging skin, puffiness, or deep wrinkles. The best an eye moisturizer can do is just moisturize the skin, which can help how it looks temporarily.
But, for anti-aging purposes, I stick with topical eye treatments that are not too creamy (may cause puffy eyes), contain anti-aging/anti-oxidants to protect from further aging, and help increase cell turnover and encourage healthy skin regeneration.
Some powerful anti-aging ingredients include:
Retinols - I like retinols because they're not as harsh as prescription Retin-A, but 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...My current favorite product is the Copper Peptide Eye Therapy by Nu Glow.
Vitamin C serums - Finally, my other favorite eye treatment cream/serum is vitamin C Serum. It's not greasy, won't puff up my eyes.
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. It's an instant temporary fix - but seems to make the whole under eye area look tighter and smoother.
And, I've tried a ton of eye lifting serums - this one by far is the best. Here is a review of some popular serums for under eye puffiness.
