Fighting wrinkles under the eyes doesn't have to be an endless nightmare or a futile attempt. Some women only turn to moisturizer, hoping that it will be enough, and some frantically try out whatever they hear from friends, but don't stick to the routine long enough.
The secret is to be patient but also to choose tricks that really help if you repeat them long enough. Nothing changes overnight! So, take a look at the ways that will help you put the wrinkles under control.
1. Egg Whites
Egg whites are rich in vitamin B and vitamin E, which both help the skin restore its flexibility and rejuvenate, in other words - they have a tightening effect. What's more, they also prevent new wrinkles from appearing.
Take a few egg whites and whip them up together in a bowl. Then gently massage the compound with your fingers onto your skin and leave it to dry for at least 15 minutes. Use warm water to rinse it off.
2. Lemon Juice
The acidity present in lemon reduces the existing wrinkles, while simultaneously making the skin look brighter and fresher. As a bonus, the smell of the fresh citrus will awake your senses if you breathe it in deeply.
Slice a lemon and use your fingers to gently apply the juice into wrinkles and subtle lines. You don't have to rinse it off, just let the skin soak the juice in.
3. Eat More Fish & Soy
Fish, especially salmon, is a great source of protein, which is one of the skin's essential parts. It's also rich in omega-3 acid, which keeps your skin youthful and plump.
There are also certain properties of soy that can heal the skin damaged from the sun. If you eat soy-based supplements, it could greatly improve the structure of your skin and make it tighter after only six months of consumption.
4. Natural Oils
Natural oils do wonders for our skin. They make it incredibly soft and flexible. What they do is that they deeply moisturize the skin, and we all know dehydration is skin's greatest enemy. They also reduce the existing wrinkles. The first one to mention is olive oil. Before going to bed, apply a few drops under your eyes and gently massage for a couple of minutes. When you're done, rinse it with a soft towel. You'll be amazed at the softness of your skin in the morning.
Castor oil is another powerful means of rejuvenating the skin. The only difference between it and olive oil is that castor oil should be left on your face overnight and rinsed the next morning. The results will be amazing.
5. Avocado mask
This awesome fruit is one of the best solutions for wrinkles under the eyes. It provides deep nourishment to the damaged skin, getting rid of the wrinkles in the process. It's best to make a mask of avocado, apply it on the face and neck and leave it for at least 15 minutes to provide the skin with nutrients. Rinse it off and admire the results!
Quick and lasting solution
Of course, sometimes even the most persistent women won't notice any difference around their eyes, as some wrinkles are here to stay. But there is always a solution - a simple eye lift surgery with quick recovery is the tiniest procedure there is, and will still get you exactly where you want to be, without months of experimenting with masks. So, deal easily with the existing wrinkles and continue with the care to prevent new ones.
Final advice - a few things to avoid
If you want to decrease wrinkles as much as possible, here are some things that will definitely speed up the wrinkling process: smoking (should it be explained any further?), unhealthy diet (too much of processed sugar and soda drinks) and too much exposure to the sun (which makes you squint your eyes, as well as letting the UV rays damage the skin) can be great contributors to premature wrinkling of the skin.
It's not just about what you do for your skin - it's also about what you don't do!
