Your eyes are your window to the world and they can be the first places to show signs of aging skin. The tender skin around your eyes is much thinner than the skin on the rest of your face, making it extremely sensitive.
What causes dark circles, puffy eyes and wrinkles?
1. Lack of sleep
As you sleep, your skin cells regenerate and produce collagen and elastin. When you do not get enough sleep, your skin cells do not have enough time to recuperate and this can result in bags, dark circles and even droopy eyelids. Sleep deprivation can also cause fluid to build up under the eyes making them look puffy either under the eyes in the form of bags or on the lids that can cause a shadow of dark circles
2. Winter weather
The lack of sunlight in the colder weather makes skin paler and can emphasize eye bags and dark circles even more. Dark circles appear because the skin under the eyes is so thin that blood vessels can be visible under the skin.
As you get older, you lose the fat and collagen needed to maintain skin elasticity so the dark blood vessels under your skin become more visible and the area under your eyes to darken.
While there is nothing like a full night’s rest, here are some eye-opening ways to give your eye area extra care to brave any winter storm.
