Looking for Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes? Check out these 10 simple treatments that will you deal with those wrinkles!
Why is it that as we age, especially if we love to laugh and smile, that our skin seems to penalize us by turning those laughs into laugh lines?
If you are like me, you have a lot of expressions when you talk. My face always gives away what I’m thinking…often at the worst times.
The skin around your eyes is constantly moving, in fact even blinking causes 10,000 movements per day.
Smiling, squinting, staring at computers or devices too long can all cause laugh lines, crow’s feet, or any kind of fine line under your eyes.
The skin around our eyes is ten times thinner than the rest of the skin on your face.
Extra care should be given when you touch your eye area.
Be sure to use the ring finger to apply any cosmetics or moisturizers to that part of the face. Your ring finger is the weakest finger you have and won’t able to apply much pressure.
Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes
Why do we get Fine Lines Around Eyes?
The skin ages in two ways – biologically (Thanks, Mom) and environmentally (Thanks, Sun).
According to the American Academy of Dermatology:
- Production of collagen and elastin slows down a dramatic 65% between ages 20 and 80.
- The thickness of the skin decreases 6% every 10 years.
- The sun causes 90%–95% of the wrinkles, lines, as well as brown, red and white discoloration on our bodies.
- 90% of premature facial aging can be attributed to sun damage. This is why you’ll see me wearing a hat if I am outside!
Okay, let’s talk about the causes of wrinkles.
Is anyone else here a Martina McBride fan? ME! I’m literally one of her biggest fans. I was listening to “This One’s for the Girls” recently and this line hit close to home:
This is for all you girls about forty-two,
Tossin’ pennies into the fountain of youth,
Every laugh line on your face,
Made you who you are today.
Martina, if you are reading, I love you.
I’ve mentioned in a previous post that my skincare goal is to age gracefully. The wrinkles are going to come anyway, but there are few treatments for wrinkles around eyes that you can easily do without using needles or injectables to fix them
Here are the top causes that lead us looking for treatments for wrinkles around eyes:
- You speak with lots of gestures and emotions
- Hormonal disorders that lead to a violation of skin elasticity (for example, during the post-menopause in women, this skin defect begins to form)
- Chronic fatigue
- Lack of sleep
- Too much sun exposure
- Frequent stress
- The use of alcoholic beverages
- Use substandard cosmetics
- Use of unintended cosmetics for this area of the face
- Rubbing various masks, creams or scrubs into this zone

10 Methods for Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes
1. Drink more water
The skin around the eye is very thin and subject to dehydration. The BEST treatment for wrinkles around eyes is to simply drink more water. Here’s how to calculate how much water you should drink: Divide your body weight in half, then divide that by 8. That is the MINIMUM number of cups of water you should be drinking on a daily basis.
I challenge you to drink half your body weight in ounces daily. It’s tough to get used to at first, but then you’ll start to see some amazing positive results in your skin and the way you feel overall.
Tip: Get a fun bottle that you enjoy drinking out of. Something fun, fancy, or flirty will help encourage you to drink and carry your water with you wherever you go.
2. Wear sunglasses
This is a pretty basic treatment for wrinkles around eyes. Sun damage is the worst damage to our skin and causes 90 – 95% of wrinkles. Plus, the sun also causes age spots and other discoloration in our skin. Anytime you feel the need to squint or strain your eyes to see, you need sunglasses.
Bonus: Wear a hat for prolonged sun exposure. A big floppy hat that will cover your entire face is a great way to preserve your skin and reduce the effects of the sun.
3. Sleep on your back
Here’s a tip from Live About for a treatment for wrinkles around eyes – avoid sleeping on your stomach.
“When you sleep on your belly, the side of your face resting on your pillow is squished for hours at a time. By constantly squishing your face each night into your pillow, you are causing creasing which can eventually turn into wrinkles. (Notice sleep lines each morning?)
Try falling asleep on your back. If you find it hard to stay that way, put a pillow under your knees, which will help you stay in place and not roll over onto your stomach.
Can’t imagine not sleeping on your belly? Consider investing in a specially shaped pillow that allows you to sleep on your stomach while protecting your skin from wrinkles.”
4. Don’t touch!
What do you when you get tired from straining too long at the computer or when you wake up in the morning? You rub your eyes. Stop doing that! Rubbing and tugging in that delicate area around your eyes will only cause more damage. Remember this treatment for wrinkles around eyes – keep your hands off!
5. Use SPF
I understand that certain skin types have issues with SPF, but it’s so important that you find the right one that works for you. Daily SPF should be the first step for treatment for wrinkles around eyes.
Check out this premium SPF. It has a multipurpose formula provides critical moisture to the skin to hydrate, smooth and firm skin’s appearance while helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Unique botanical complex helps replenish skin’s natural moisture barrier, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. It has a long-lasting moisturizing formula helps maintain youthful-looking, hydrated skin. Plus, a broad spectrum SPF 20 sunscreen offers UVA/UVB protection to minimize the risk of sun damage or aging, if used as directed with other sun protection measures.
6. Face yoga
This is one of my FAVORITES when it comes to treatment for wrinkles around eyes. I discovered anti-aging face yoga on dailyom.com. DailyOM.com is an amazing website with so many classes. Prices start at $15 and you have lifetime access to each lesson from the class.
I have no affiliation with dailyom.com. I recommend them every chance I get. Take a look and you will find several classes that will likely interest you.

Now, use those products day and night. It takes time to see results and you must be consistent. If you are ever too tired to go through the entire routine to take care of your skin, then simplify rather than skip.
