You may have heard that your eyes are the windows to your soul. Though this may be true, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your eyes also have to be the windows to your real age!
As you grow older, your eyes and upper face can develop fine lines, wrinkles, under-eye bags, discoloration, and droopiness due to the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and lack of proper skin care. Not only can these signs of aging make you look older, but they can affect your confidence, self-esteem, and the way you feel about your overall appearance.
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your aging eyes, there are several cosmetic solutions that can come to the rescue. Here are your best cosmetic options for making your eyes look younger.
Eyelid surgery can rejuvenate your eyes
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can help improve eyes that look sad, tired, droopy, and puffy due to aging or genetics. During eyelid surgery, your plastic surgeon removes excess skin and fat tissue from your lids to help you look more youthful and alert. This procedure is most ideal for individuals over the age of 35, or younger individuals who have older-looking eyes due to family genetics.
Botox® can soften wrinkles
If your eyes look older due to surrounding fine lines and wrinkles, Botox could be your go-to treatment. Botox is an injectable formula designed to help soften and remove natural wrinkles from between your eyes and on the sides of your eyes, as well as your forehead.
Botox is a minimally invasive in-office procedure that results in little pain and no downtime, meaning you can return to your normal daily routine following your appointment. The effects of Botox can last for between three and four months.
Anti-aging creams and formulas can improve skin health
High-performance eye creams and serums can help improve your skin health, and lend to an overall youthful appearance around the eyes. Look for skin care products developed specifically for around your eyes that naturally help reduce puffiness, dark circles, and wrinkles.
If you’re trying to combat dark circles and puffiness, try using A.G.E. Eye Complex by SkinCeuticals, which contains blueberry extract, Pro-Xylane, and complex flavonoids -- all of which help improve visible signs of intrinsic aging around the eyes.
If your goal is to lift your eyes and restore elasticity, try using ELASTIderm Eye Treatment by Obagi, which contains zinc, copper, malonic acid, blueberry extract, and other compounds that restore vitality and youth to your eyes.
