Beyond Skin Deep: Unveiling the Secrets to Youthful Eyes

Beyond Skin Deep: Unveiling the Secrets to Youthful Eyes

Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of aging, a privilege we can't resist. However, there are ways to support your skin through this process. 

Eye wrinkles are a common, often a result of a lifetime of smiles and laughter. While some wrinkles are a reminder of the joyous moments we've experienced, others can be addressed with a bit of TLC.

First, let’s start with a  guide on how to support supple skin from the inside out:

Nutrient-Rich Diet & Collagen-Rich Foods: 

Prioritize a diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Consuming foods high in vitamin C, vitamin E, and fatty acids can promote skin elasticity and help smooth fine lines. Collagen is a structural protein, which means it helps provide the framework for your skin. Incorporating more collagen into your diet can help maintain natural levels in your body, as they naturally decrease with age. Opt for some bone broth or just a simple supplement! 


Maintaining natural protection and hydration for your skin is key to minimizing fine lines. Consider trying this simple experiment: double your usual water intake for a few days. See if you detect any changes in your skin—maybe a reduction in redness or a plumper, more hydrated appearance. 

Avoid Smoking & Excessive Alcohol Consumption: 

The occasional indulgence like a glass of wine or a celebratory cigarette on New Year’s won’t have a detrimental impact on your skin. However, prolonged and excessive alcohol consumption and smoking can speed up the aging process. Remember it’s all about a balanced approach where moderation is key. 

Maintaining a nutrient-rich diet, staying adequately hydrated, and being mindful of your substance intake is a great way to keep your skin as youthful and healthy as possible. 

Now let’s talk topical. Here are some ways to treat your skin from the outside: 

Skincare Routine: 

Having a skincare routine is absolutely pertinent to promoting the longevity and youth of your skin. There are some simple ways to incorporate steps within your existing habits to help with wrinkles around the eyes. 

Incorporating products with retinoids, hyaluronic acid, and peptides is a great start given they’re known for their anti-aging properties. Regular cleansing is essential to clear out bacteria and prevent buildup, while following up with moisturization helps lock in hydration, contributing to a smoother complexion by minimizing the appearance of lines.


I feel as though I shouldn’t even have to include this because, come on girls! And our lovely guys reading this, but seriously, SPF is and should always be #1. Wearing sunscreen daily is the most proactive way to protect your skin from wrinkles and premature aging. Make it easy on yourself and pick up a SPF infused moisturizer that you use daily while getting ready. 

Eye Creams & Serums: 

Skincare and consistent SPF are great ways to keep your skin plump, but sometimes a little target application can be great too. Using an eye cream designed to lesson the signs of aging and dark circles is a great addition to your routine. Like I mentioned earlier, using serums that include anti-aging properties like hyaluronic acid is another way to get some topical TLC. 

Remember that aging is a privilege in life, and a beautiful one at that. Embrace the smile lines that form around the same eyes that have allowed you to enjoy and witness your life in such a vibrant way. 

Today’s Takeaway: Simply making some small lifestyle and habit changes can exponentially improve your skin’s overall health while highlighting your natural beauty and unique features, wrinkles and all.
