Under eye wrinkles can make you look old and tired. Get rid of your under eye wrinkles by understanding the causes and treatments.
Wrinkles under your eyes can cause you to look older than you are (not to mention tired and worn down). Fortunately, they are both preventable and treatable. Get advice on fighting under-eye wrinkles from the Murad anti wrinkle experts.
Under-eye wrinkles are often one of the first signs of aging on the face. As we previously discussed, the skin around the eyes is thinner and more sensitive than the skin on the rest of the face and doesn’t contain its own oil-producing glands, making it more susceptible to wrinkles. Additionally, the skin underneath the eyes is more likely to be exposed to UV rays without proper protection than the rest of the face. There are also several other factors that lead to the development and deepening of under-eye wrinkles. So how do under-eye wrinkles form, how can you prevent them and what can you do to treat them?
What Causes Under-Eye Wrinkles?
While the causes of under-eye wrinkles are similar to those of crow’s feet, there are also a number of other factors at work, specifically related to age and gravity. Here’s a quick rundown of the causes of under–eye wrinkles:

Preventing Under-Eye Wrinkles
Following the principles of Inclusive Health® to keep your body and skin healthy will help you have younger-looking skin all over, including underneath your eyes. Be sure to:
Stay Hydrated: Hydrated skin is healthy, youthful-looking skin. To help keep your skin hydrated from within, eat your water as described in Dr. Murad’s best-selling book The Water Secret.
Anti Aging Diet: Eat foods that are rich in antioxidants, like fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants are nature’s warriors against the free radicals that cause aging skin and wrinkles.
Reduce Cultural Stress™: Stress can speed up the signs of aging. Reduce stress in your life to help minimize the signs of aging on your skin.
Get Enough Sleep: Sleep deprivation, often a result of Cultural Stress, can also make your skin look older.
Reduce Exposure to Toxins: Minimize your exposure to toxins from things like pollution, chemicals, household products and cigarette smoke.
However, when it comes to preventing under-eye wrinkles, the most important thing is to minimize exposure to the sun.
Treating Under-Eye Wrinkles
The key to reducing and minimizing under-eye wrinkles is to rehydrate and firm the skin under the eyes. Murad offers a number of anti aging eye creams that can help.

What Did You Just Learn About Under-Eye Wrinkles?
In this section of the Murad Anti Aging Skin Care and Resource Center, you should have learned the following points:
- Under-eye wrinkles are caused by a number of factors, including the loss of collagen and the weakening of elastin due to Genetic Aging and Hormonal Aging.
- Environmental Aging from sun and UV ray exposure can also cause wrinkles under the eyes.
- Gravity plays a significant role in under-eye wrinkles. As skin loses firmness due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin, gravity pushes skin down further, causing wrinkles and creases.
- To prevent under-eye wrinkles, follow an Inclusive Health® approach and use skin care with sun protection daily.
- To treat and minimize under-eye wrinkles, use under-eye creams that will firm skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
