Laughing, concentrating, squinting or frowning; whenever you move your face your muscles contract. After years of frequent contractions, combined with environmental and lifestyle factors - such as exposure to sunshine, smoking or pollution - lines, wrinkles, dark circles and bags begin to form around your eyes, leaving them looking tired. The eyes are often the first place to reveal the signs of ageing, as the skin is thinner and more prone to creasing, pigmentation and puffiness. The main cause of lines and wrinkles and pigmentation such as dark circles is a decrease in the amounts of collagen and elastin in the skin. These proteins are responsible for our skin’s elasticity and thickness, but production drops as we age. The best way to postpone the appearance of wrinkles, eye bags, dark circles and sunken eyes is to use an SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, avoid smoking, drink plenty of water and follow a good skin care routine, particularly one with a deep acting moisturiser.
