Why Do My Eyes Get Wrinkles So Easily?
While it is true that we all age, it is also true that
we age differently.One thing, though, that we all have in common is that the first
signs of the years that have passed, often show up around our eyes. No matter if these wrinkles have formed as a result of the incredible smile that is constantly shining on
your face or because you stress out and/or you frown way too much, having fine (or not
so fine) lines around your eyes is not nice.
Ever wondered why
this is the first place where the years leave their marks? Let’s find out!
Why is the skin around my eyes so thin?
The skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate and
due to the fact that there are no oil glands in this area of the face, it is
prone to dryness and
more likely to get wrinkly. Here is it important to note that the skin around
the eyes is not always the same as the skin of the rest of our face in terms of
elasticity, etc, which is why sometimes we get our first wrinkles exactly
Why does the skin around my eyes get wrinkles first?
Because your facial muscles move. As simple as that. Whether
you smile, yawn, frown or just squint, in all cases you stretch the skin that
covers the facial muscles. If this skin is not
well hydrated and it
has lost its elasticity, it gets wrinkly more easily.

How To Choose Eye Cream & How To Apply It?
Many say that eye creams are nothing more than regular moisturizer in smaller bottles that are marketed very well. I disagree. If the skin around your eyes is drier/oilier than the rest of your face this means you need a special product for it – your regular moisturizer definitely won’t work. Make sense, doesn’t it?
If the skin around your eyes is dry, you will need a rich, deeply nourishing cream, to keep it hydrated and supple. If the skin around your eyes is oily, a light gel or serum, one that gets easily absorbed and doesn’t leave greasy residues, will be more than enough.
Regarding application, the main rule is:
Be gentle! The skin around the eyes is thin and very delicate, hence more likely to get damaged under the influence of external factors. Always apply eye cream with your ring finger (as it is the weakest one) and massage/dab gently, until fully absorbed. Simple rules to follow, that are sure to give you great results and wrinkle-free skin.
