Remedies for Eye Wrinkles


LACK of sleep, too much stress and sun exposure and poor diet can lead to unsightly eye wrinkles.

There are other natural methods to fight eye wrinkles.

Cucumber. Eating cucumber plays a role, however certain nutrients, including foods high in sulfur, silicon and zinc, are important for collagen production. Collagen decreases as one age. Collagen maintains the strength and elasticity of connective tissue. It can help rebuild damaged skin, and help protect it from further damage. Omega 3-rich foods are also a nutrient for skin. Eat lean meats, plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, legumes and low-fat dairy products. Limit processed foods, saturated fats and junk foods. Drink sufficient amounts of water to prevent dehydration, a big culprit in wrinkle formation.

If you wish to put cucumbers on eyes, try mixing one teaspoon of powdered milk with two teaspoons of grated cucumber, apply the mixture, leave on for 15 minutes and rinse off with cold water.

Olive oil. Before going to bed, rub a small amount below each eye. Jojoba oil can be used instead of olive oil. To enhance the benefits, mix one to two drops of essential oil (such as sandalwood, frankincense, neroli, clary sage or geranium) with one teaspoon of olive or jojoba oil.

Aloe vera. It stimulates collagen and elastin production. If you have a plant, cut a piece off from the lowest leaf and apply the gel to your skin. If you don’t have a plant, you can buy it but avoid products that have been processed.

Egg whites. Simply beat one egg white, apply, let it dry and wash off with tepid water.
Honey. Mix 1/2 teaspoon of honey with one tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. Gently massage a small amount over the area under the eyes, leave on for 30 minutes and rinse off with tepid water.

Beeswax. Over low heat, melt one tablespoon of beeswax. Once melted, remove from heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice, one tablespoon of almond oil and two tablespoons of apricot extract and mix. Before applying, refrigerate the mixture for at least two hours.

Do not smoke or squint. Wear sunglasses with UV protection when in the sun and get adequate sleep. Do not also over wash your face.
