How to remove wrinkles above eyes/eyelids

By Richa Sahni

Keep An Eye On Your Skin: Do you feel old and tired because of your puffy eyes and sagging skin? Fret not; we have some handy tricks and treats for you and your beautiful skin. Read on to know more!

There is a lot to think while you are planning your own wedding. From managing the psychological pre-wedding jitters to getting an elegant makeup, or gorgeous yet versatile hairstyle, all can take a great toll on your skin. It can affect both your health and beauty. If you are tired, didn’t get enough sleep, or drank too much coffee, it might cause dark circles under your eyes, which can mar the memories of your big day. Whatever the cause is, dark circles under your eyes and sagginess on your face can make you look old and tired. Even the slightest discolouration on your face and loose skin can make you look ten years older than your actual age and in some individuals even one night of sleeplessness can cause dark circles and sagging skin to appear more prominently.

Sagging skin is due to two age-related reasons: loss of collagen, which gives skin its elasticity, and loss of facial fat, the absence of which causes skin to droop. Sun exposure is another reason for skin losing its elasticity. The UV rays present in sunlight also damage skin cells that over time increase the effects of aging. All that ultraviolet radiation you soaked up while getting that perfect tan also breaks down your collagen and elastin, which can lead to saggy skin and wrinkles. Last but not least, weight loss, especially the loss of large amount of weight over a short period of time, can cause skin to sag. As we age, these cells stop proliferating, meaning there are more cells dying than there are new ones being produced. Fewer cells mean less collagen production, which translates into sagging skin, compressed joints and basically less support for the visible parts of our body.

Fortunately, we have solutions for all your sagging woes.

Droopy face? NO MORE!

Egg whites are a natural astringent and hence work as a good remedy for sagging skin. It contains skin-nourishing ingredient hydro-lipid that helps in lifting loose skin. Whisk one to two egg whites until you get a foamy texture. Apply it to your face and neck. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and then rinse it off with cool water.

Massaging your neck and face with a natural oil like olive oil also helps to tighten loose skin and keeps it firm and smooth.

Among the clinical treatments, the US FDA approved non-invasive facelift that reduces fat on the face while also lifting the facial contours, giving you a tighter jawline and younger looking face. Painless, without side effects and risk-free, Accent Ultra is ideal for any bride who wishes to improve their facial contours without the risk.

Banish those dark circles and puffy eyes— What are reasons that cause eye circles? It is basically caused by four factors. The genetic anatomical component is first among it. Many people have deep-set eyes, which mean that eye-socket is recessed. This along with discolouration and poor blood circulation is transmitted genetically to the next generation. The next factor is pigmentation. If a person has a tendency for this area to get discoloured, it makes them look tired perpetually. The weak blood and lymphatic flow in this area also causes eyes to look saggy. The last cause is ageing. As the human body ages, collagen production becomes less and this causes under-eye skin to look colourless and saggy since collagen tightens our skin.

However, there is no need to panic, because there are innumerable ways to cure under-eye circles. Some of them are very convenient and can be done a few minutes before your make-up on your big day.

The most handy and effective among all the remedies is using tea bags. Place the tea bags in cool water, squeeze the water out, and put these in the freezer. Lie down and place the tea bags on your eyes. Leave it for 10-15 minutes. The anti-oxidants and astringents present in tea reduce the discolouration and tighten the skin under eyes.

Mix one teaspoon of tomato juice with one and a half teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply it under your eyes; leave it for 10 minutes and then rinse it off. Tomatoes contain Lycopene, which inhibits the activity of collagenases- the enzyme that breaks down collagen that helps ensuring firmness of the skin.

Another clinical remedy is Under Eye Rescue (available at Lumiere Dermatalogy), which is a highly effective solution while also being non-invasive and without any side effects. This treatment combines the benefits of both collagen-boosting effects of radio frequency and anti-pigmentation actives, which eradicates all the factors that cause under eye circles. For this treatment, US FDA Approved Accent Ultra is used to improve the appearance of sagging and poor blood circulation. The rapid collagen stimulating action lifts and tightens the skin under eyes permanently. Using your own cells to heal yourself, PRP can be used on the under-eye circles to fill them naturally. Results for this last for a year, and requires just a touchup to go glam during your wedding.

Hence, gear up by getting rid of sagginess and under eye circles by taking treatments suggested above and become a show-stopper on your big day.
