Looking to reduce wrinkles? Read these 10 Tips to reduce and prevent wrinkles under the eyes.

Read on

1. Moisturize

Don’t be so afraid of touching the skin under your eyes that you don’t take the time to thoroughly apply moisturizer to the area at least twice daily.When the thin skin under your eyes dries out (which it can quickly) it is more prone to fine lines and wrinkles as well as dark circles.

2. Stop smoking

In addition to literally wrapping your head in a cloud of drying and damaging smoke throughout the day (that’s not the kind of steam facial you want…), smoking can physically start breaking down essential skin-plumping components like collagen and elastin.For the sake of beauty and your overall health, add keeping wrinkles at bay to the list of reasons why you need to stop smoking ASAP.

3. Retinoids

Retinoids may just be one of the best beauty ingredients in terms of fine line reduction and prevention.Retinoids prevent collagen breakdown as well as ramping up skin cell turnover to (literally) give your skin a fresh start.Weaker retinoids are available over the counter without a prescription, but if you want the more powerful (and effective) retinoids, look into prescription Tretinoin.Strut Anti-Aging Formula combines prescription-strength Tretinoin with a skin-boosting B-Vitamin and hydration boosting hyaluronic acid.Have an Online Visit with our doctors today to see if Strut Anti-Aging formula is a good fit for your skin goals.

4. Eat the rainbow

Making sure you are eating a wide variety of colorful fruits and vegetables helps your skin by giving all the vitamins and antioxidants it needs to look its best.Leafy greens, orange and red vegetables, and berries are tasty nutrient bombs that can work wonders on your skin if your diet has been less than colorful recently.

5. Face masks

If your under-eye lines are very fine, sometimes all that is needed to plump them up is a good face mask treatment once or twice a week.A lot of time very fine lines are dehydrated skin, so using a mask or cream with skin-plumping ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin C can do a pretty good job making those lines less visible (at least for a while).Strut Brightly is a physician formulated hyaluronic acid, a botox-like peptide, and vitamin C cream meant to hydrate and brighten even the dullest complexions.Have an Online Visit with our doctor today to see if Strut Brightly is the daily skin-boosting cream you have been looking for.

6. Wear sunglasses

Sunglasses are more than just a fashion statement, they can help protect the thin and sensitive skin around the eyes from unnecessary UV exposure.UV light can cause collagen breakdown and skin damage, ultimately leading to more eye wrinkles over time.Find a cute pair of sunglasses with a wider frame to ensure that most of the skin around the eye can be fully covered even on the sunniest beach day.

7. Wear sunscreen

No skincare list would be complete without us begging you to wear sunscreen every day, so here is #7 - sunscreen.Find a nice light sunscreen with at least SPF 30 that you would be willing to wear under your makeup on a daily basis.Skip the super thick and chalky brands for everyday use, and opt for lighter easily absorbable sunscreens made for the face to make sure you use it!

8. Hydrate

You can apply the best moisturizers around the clock and still have dull and creased skin if you don’t hydrate from within as well.As an easy goal, be sure to drink at least 8 X 8-ounce glasses of water a day at minimum to combat body and skin dehydration.

9. Revamp your sleep

If you really want to do everything you can to combat fine lines on your face, you need to look into switching up your sleep.If you are a side sleeper, that means you are spending 8-ish (hopefully) hours a night with your face crammed into a pillow.Over time, this can lead to extra fine lines on your face.Sleeping on your back gives the delicate skin on your face the best opportunity to avoid creases and fine lines due to your sleeping position.Pro Tip: If you really want to beautify your sleep routine, switch to silk or satin pillowcases to avoid fabrics that may wick away moisture from your skin and hair all night.

10. Talk to your dermatologist

Speak with your dermatologist about what treatments are available for fine line reduction if you want to do something ASAP and the cost is not an issue.Certain treatments may include micro-needling, chemical peels, fillers, Microdermabrasion, lasers, and botox.
