What causes under-eye wrinkles?
Fine lines under the eye are mainly caused by repeated use of the muscles around the eyes for facial expressions. The natural thinning of the skin and loss of elasticity as we age, which tends to occur around the eyes first, combined with these repeated muscular movements manifests in the formation of fine lines under and on the sides of the eye.
Can I prevent under-eye wrinkles?
Preventing wrinkles full stop is not possible - it would be like trying to prevent grey hair from growing. But you can certainly take steps to reduce the development and appearance of wrinkles and that can make a huge difference.
Is there anything I can do to help under-eye wrinkles?
A two-pronged approach is needed; first, tackle the development of the under-eye-wrinkles themselves and second, minimise the appearance of any fine lines as they appear.
