Eyes WrinklesEyes wrinkles … sooner all later we see them and there is not much we can do about them. However, when eyes wrinkles and crow feet appear at an early age there are natural remedies we could resort to in order to reduce them.

Here are the most frequently recommended natural solutions to keep the skin toned and prevent wrinkles for as long as possible.

 

General lifestyle recommendations

  1. It’s not just words that beauty comes from the inside. For instance, Dandelion can detox the skin, purify the blood and lymphatic system, thus making our skin healthier and more beautiful. Other herbs that could help are Horsetail and Rosemary.
  2. According to studies made at the University of Maryland Medical Center, green and black tea, as well as soy extracts could be effective in reducing under eyes wrinkles.
  3. Try to have a well-balanced diet, rich in fresh fruits, vegetables and nuts, to protect the skin against premature aging. Foods rich in vitamins A and E are very important.
  4. Avoid over sun exposure without using a sunscreen lotion or wearing sunglasses.
  5. Try to get enough sleep every night – around 7 or 8 hours.
  6. Avoid stress as much as possible. Stress affects not only our capacity to enjoy life and our health but it also leaves visible marks on our faces.
  7. Be gentle to the skin around your eyes when you apply and remove makeup, as it is very thin and sensitive.
  8. Drink a lot of water to make sure that your skin is hydrated. Thus, it will be more prepared to fight wrinkles.
  9. Try daily facial exercises, preferably twice a day. For instance, open and close your mouth like you are yawning. Repeat 10 times. Or place your middle finger on the external sides of your eyes. Pull outward gently and try to quickly open your eyes for five times, while feeling the pressure. You can find more exercises here.

Natural remedies for under eyes wrinkles

  1. Castor oil – it is really simple to use and is considered an effective treatment for eyes wrinkles. All you have to do is apply a few drops at night, after cleansing. Then gently massage the skin around the eyes.

  2. Coconut oil – Apply the same way, before going to bed. Coconut is rich in antioxidants which protect the skin against free radicals, so you can also use it during the day.

  3. Grape seed oil can be effective in reducing the under eyes wrinkles thanks to antioxidants like proanthocyanidins.
  4. Avocado – It contains natural oils which can support the skin in producing more natural oil. Apply mashed avocado around your eyes and keep it for 15-20 minutes.

  5. Vitamin E – It has antioxidant properties and hydrates the skin very well. You can use vitamin E by squeezing a capsule each night and massaging the skin.

  6. Cucumber is also a good moisturizer of the skin, containing vitamin C. Regular use of cucumber juice or putting cucumber slices on the eyes hydrates the skin and can reduce eyes wrinkles and crow feet.

  7. Egg whites are also recommended to tighten the skin around the eyes, as well as on areas like the forehead, neck, mouth area and hands. The only inconvenient is that is should be applied daily for a few weeks, which is a bit more complicated than using oils on a daily basis.

  8. Lemon and honey – the combination of lemon’s vitamin C and the minerals, vitamins, pollen and protein contained by honey work together to reduce eyes wrinkles. Mix two drops of honey and 2-3 drops of fresh lemon juice, apply on the wrinkles and leave in for 15 to 20 minutes.
