If you have ever noticed, we can often tell a stranger’s estimated age through his or her eyes. This is because signs of ageing often first appear in this region, making your eyes a terrible liar that reveals one’s age like an open book waiting to be read.
The skin around the eyes are the thinnest and most delicate, making it obvious to first signs of ageing that may include:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Dark circles
- Loss of collagen or firmness
- Uneven texture
- Crow’s feet
- Laugh lines around the eyes
However, it’s a normal part of the ageing process as our skin ages, and many will undergo these changes. There are some things you can do to help mitigate these signs of ageing around the eyes:
1. Decrease amount of time spent under sun exposure
Constant sun exposure will increase chances of premature ageing, accelerating the rate of wrinkle formation and hyperpigmentation. UVA rays can penetrate deep into the epidermis layer of your skin, making your eyes more susceptible to age spots and dark patches.
Try Morning Glow - A physical sunscreen dedicated to help block harmful UV rays, Morning Glow leaves no white cast and is effective in locking in moisture and hydration. It also sits well under makeup, and helps to brighten skin while fighting free radicals and reducing hyperpigmentation.

2. Use an effective eye cream
