Why Do Wrinkles Occur Under the Eyes?
As stated it’s natural to get wrinkles on the majority of your body as you get older. Wrinkles under the eyes are especially common because the skin on this part of your face is very thin and delicate. Wrinkles occur with age for several reasons. First as we get older our skin does not produce as much collagen as it does when we are children and in our teenage years. This collagen is what we need to keep our skin young looking smooth and taught. When we don’t have it our skin gets thin and shrivels up. This causes wrinkles.
Another cause for wrinkles under the eyes is exposure to the elements. Excess exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun for example can cause the aging process to go faster. In addition those who are chronic smokers tend to experience more wrinkles under the eyes.
Are There Natural Remedies for Under Eye Wrinkles?

Many people think that natural remedies are not effective but they are in fact. Check out this great natural mask for getting rid of under eye wrinkles.
The Best Natural Mask for Under Eye Wrinkles
The best mask for under eye wrinkles is egg whites. As you know egg whites are liquid when you crack the egg but over time they harden into a crispy layer. You can then easily peel this layer away. To create an egg white mask for your under eye area follow these directions.
- Mix your mask
Start by mixing 1 egg white in a bowl with 1 teaspoon of honey. The honey will add moisture and a good smell to your egg white mask. Whip the ingredients together.
- Apply the mask
Apply this mask to your face making sure that you are starting with a clean surface free of makeup dirt oil or sweat. Set your timer for 15 minutes. It might feel odd to have this mask on your skin but it will really be helping.
- Peel off the mask
After your 15 minutes is up you can peel off the mask. There may be little pieces left here and there that you’ll need to wipe off with a damp wash cloth.
- Alternate this mask with an avocado mask
Use this egg white mask on your under eye area every other week. On the off weeks use some avocado mushed up on the area. This will restore moisture to the area.
Are There Creams That Can Help With Under Eye Wrinkles?
There are of course many creams and serums out there that claim to get rid of under eye circles. Some of these will be helpful but not all of them. Keep this in mind because you don’t want to waste hundreds of dollars on these products only to find out that they don’t really work.
Some of the products do work however and these are the ones with vitamin E and retinol in them. Both of these products are helpful at getting rid of under eye wrinkles. The latter product retinol is derived from vitamin A. It is the best known artificial fighter of wrinkles anywhere on the skin. If you use vitamin A or retinol on the under eye area just make sure that you are using a derivation that is made especially for under the eyes. Retinol is a rather harsh ingredient and it can be damaging and drying to sensitive skin. This is why you must make sure to use only a small amount to take care of your wrinkles and you must always use a sunscreen when you go outdoors with this cream on.
Using Makeup for Under Eye Wrinkles
As you are working with the under eye natural remedies and creams you might want to have something to cover up these wrinkly areas during the day and when you go out at night. To achieve this use an under eye concealer. These are special concealers made for the delicate skin under the eyes and they can be purchased at your local drugstore or online.
You will want to purchase one of these concealers in a shade lighter than your natural skin color to brighten and smooth out the area. Be gentle when you apply this concealer and never pull or tug on your skin. Simply pat it in with your ring finger. Next cover the concealer with a bit of foundation using a foundation sponge. Set with powder.
