Home Remedies to Thicken Skin Under Eyes?
Are there any home remedies to thicken the skin under the eyes? I'm on a fixed income and can't afford expensive laser resurfacing, chemical peels or any of those treatments that are supposed to make the skin look younger.
The skin under my eye has become very thin skin, with fine lines and some eye bags. I've tried hyaluronic acid serums, but that did nothing.
I try to get enough sleep, drink enough water, eat a balanced diet, use sunscreen to protect against sun damage, and use anti-aging skin care products for healthy skin.
And I think I look pretty good for my age, but the area under my eye has very thin, loose and a little puffy. This makes me look older than friends my age.
I tried some home remedies I found on the internet, like applying egg whites, green tea bags, vitamin E oil, and cucumber slices. I even bought an expensive retinol product that was supposed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. But nothing worked! I still have thin crepey skin and under-eye wrinkles!
So frustrating! Do you have any ideas or natural remedies that can help?
Thanks for your question regarding home remedies to help thicken skin under the eyes.
I understand exactly what you're talking about. I had some deep crinkles and crepey skin under my eyes and around the crow's feet area. But, now in my 60s, my under-eye skin looks better now than it did in my late 30s.
Here are a few home remedies you can try to help thicken the skin under your eyes and your whole face:
A. Eye skin massage. Believe it or not, this is one of the best ways to improve the delicate skin around the eyes and to increase blood circulation. Use your ring fingers to lightly massage the whole surface of your skin from the inner corner of the eyes all the way around to the top eyelids. So you're making eye circles in quick motions.
Over time, this increases healthy blood flow and helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and improves skin tone, and helps reduce puffy eyes.
Make sure to apply a little cream before doing this. After a few months, you should notice a difference in skin texture. Over time, this increases healthy blood flow and helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and improves skin tone, and helps reduce puffy eyes.

B. Apply topical creams that contain niacinamide (vitamin B3). Niacinamide helps under eye skin maintain a youthful appearance by hydrating and thickening the skin.
C. Vitamin C eye creams helps with skin renewal, improve skin health and increased elastin production. Elastin is the stuff that makes your skin stretchy and pliable. Pure vitamin C can also protect and repair damage skin due to UV damage.
D. Lifestyle changes can help thicken skin under the eyes too. Eat less sugar and more vegetables (especially garlic and onions). Onion and especially garlic contain compounds that are scientifically proven to have anti-aging and skin smoothing benefits and can give your overall skin a beautiful glow.

Also try to consume more fatty acids, either by eating more fish, sardines, flax seeds, or taking fish oil supplements.
E. Avoid excess sun exposure, use a sunscreen and try to get at least 7-9 of hours of sleep.
F. Speaking of sleep, if you are suffering from a lack of sleep and need a quick fix for saggy skin under the eyes, you can try a temporary eye lift serum. The one I use is especially formulated for sensitive skin or if you have very dry skin. It's called Easy Eye Serum.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have anymore questions.
