To alleviate wrinkles on the eyes naturally, follow our five tips below:
- Use an excellent natural eye cream that hydrates, smooths wrinkles and revitalises skin.

- Tone eyelids with precise exercises.
- Protect eyes from the sun with sunscreen, hats and sunglasses.
- Stay hydrated and eat a healthy skin loving diet.
Five Natural Ways to Banish Wrinkles on Eyelids
Use a Hydrating Wrinkle Busting Eye Cream
A good natural eye cream can do wonders for wrinkles on the eye lids, because our eyes have a lack of sebaceous glands. Dr Nitin Chauhan, a face surgeon at the University of Toronto explains that these sebaceous glands are microscopic and secrete sebum which is an oily or waxy material, the sebum then lubricates and protects skin. This lack of natural oils in the eye skin makes it susceptible to lines and wrinkles, so applying topical hydration and nourishment will really help to keep skin smooth and soft. Use a hydrating product like our Anti-Ageing Eye Cream Complex which is specially designed to hydrate and smooth wrinkles with powerful plant actives. It contains hyaluronic acid for intense hydration and hibiscus to ease lines naturally, as well as a whole host of potent extracts to help with puffing and dark circles. The silky soft formula leaves eyes feeling soft, fresh, supple and hydrated.
Treat Eyelids with Care
The skin around eyes is thinner than the rest of our face, so this delicate area needs special treatment. Be extra careful when applying and removing make-up and take your time with both tasks, so as not to manhandle the skin. Rubbing when taking eye-make up off or pulling when applying eye liner can have a negative effect. It can even cause eyelids to lose elasticity and encourage wrinkles, as tugging can damage collagen and break capillaries.
Tone Eyelids with Exercise
One of the reasons that the skin around our eyes is so susceptible to wrinkles is because it is much thinner than the rest of our skin. It is therefore prone to losing tone, sagging, lines and wrinkles. There is a lot of value in exercising the face with precise movements for specific areas. A nice facial yoga move for the eyes is to put your forefingers just underneath the end of the eyebrows on each eye and push the skin gentle to the edge of the face a little. Then blink 20 times. It also helps with crow’s feet as well as lines and wrinkles. There are lots of videos on the web that show expert facial yoga to improve the skin around eyes.
Protect Eyes From the Sun
UV damage from the sun is one of the biggest cause of wrinkles on the eyes and everywhere on our face and body. It really is worth investing in some good large sunglasses to protect the actual eye, and the skin around it. The Eye Care Trust advise to always look for the national stamp of quality for eye care protection products. In the UK this is a CE, UV 400 or British Standard Mark. This ensures your sunglasses provide adequate UV protection. High quality sunglasses provide good protection from UV rays, but it is also important to use sun cream on the skin around the eyes, as this will cover any areas where the sun may still shine. Hats are also a great way of helping to protect the eyes and face from the sun.
Stay Hydrated and Eat a Healthy Eye Loving Diet
An important part of having good skin and smooth eyelids is keeping our systems hydrated and nourished internally. This helps our bodies to work effectively and proper nourishment shows on our skin. Avoid too much junk food, sugar and salt and instead drink lots of water, fruit, vegetables and food rich in skin loving omega oils.
