We’re just gonna say it: wrinkles around your eyes (also known as crow’s feet or under eye wrinkles) are totally normal. The skin around your eyes is thinner and more sensitive than on other parts of your face, which is why it shows signs of ageing and sun damage sooner. Eye wrinkles happen to everyone but genetics, getting older, sun exposure, smoking and how you move your face can all make a difference. Using a good SPF for your face can help to delay fine lines and wrinkles showing up around your eyes.
Another great way to prevent and deal with wrinkles around the eyes is with a hydrating eye cream. By moisturising around the eyes, it keeps skin hydrated, supple and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Looking for some recommendations on the best eye creams for wrinkles? We’ve got you.
