Beauty Tips for Wrinkles Under The Eyes

God has started the aging process on me. I'm suddenly getting some fine lines and wrinkles under my eyes. Anyone have any beauty tips to combat? A favorite Retinol product perhaps.

Freshly discharged semen - does nothing for the wrinkles, but it does take your mind off them...

Stop sleeping with a pillow, it puts pressure on that fine tissue. If you must sleep, do so on your back, or put the weight on your ear when you lie on your side, not your face. I have never slept with pillows, and I am 57 but look 28.

Preparation H

by Anonymousreply 403/14/2019

Don't bother with retinol in your under-eye area, or the acids. Milder stuff will do the trick just fine as that part of the face is pretty responsive, and it will be safer for your eyes as well. You should see noticeable results quickly with just a cheap moisturizer designed specifically for that area.

There's a natural product called Biossance that is squalane-based (plants, not fish) that I really like. My sister gave me a sample of the face oil--it works great and can be used all over. They also have an eye gel I use at night. The stuff isn't exactly cheap but you barely use any per application so it lasts forever.

And for morning/daytime eye, Garnier has a cooling eye roller that really helps, especially on hungover mornings.

This stuff does work! My old ersister gave me the sample bottles when I was a young gayling. I've been using this stuff since around 21-22. My skin is amazing. I also started using Retin-A, Adapalene and Tazorac about 10 years ago. These meds really do work. Start with the lowest percentage, otherwise, you will experience irritation and peeling. I use 0.05% in Retin A and 0.1% Adapalene. IIRC, Adapalene is now available OTC.

I also use a generic less abrasive Buff-Puff with a mild skin cleanser such as Cetaphil. That helps with mild dermabrasion.

Cold pressed, organic, almond oil. I know deep down you want an expensive chemical to use but this is the best. It's great for all your skin but especially the eyes. Not only for the wrinkles but it's been proven to really lighten the dark circles. In about two weeks any dark circles you have will virtually disappear.

Make sure your almond oil is cold pressed. Your skin will love it. It's a great evener too. Gets rid of all your blotches on your face. I was actually shocked at the difference in a week or so. Plus about $25.00 will give you a year's supply. Almond oil is loaded with vitamin E so I'm not sure if the capsule is needed but to each his own.

I alternate vitamin C and AHA (both from the Ordinary). I will probably start tretinoin/retin-A under the eyes again at some point.

You have build/maintain collagen to combat fine lines under the eyes. Just slapping on some moisturizer or oil really isn’t going to address the issues you mentioned.

My sister - who has eczema and super-sensitive thin combination skin as well as lines/circles- swears by La Roche Posay 'Pigmentclar' serum for her circles, but I look askance at the marketing for their products as they seem targeted and overpriced. I can't say I've noticed a dramatic difference in her eye appearance from before use, but she seems happy with the result. I will admit LRP lipid cream for severe dryness seems to do something for my flaky arid skin, but again their steep prices and classist marketing campaign is offputting.

R20 I've heard that cold metal rollerballs (with or without product) can help reduce puffiness around eyes and brighten/firm the skin. If true, how exactly does that work? Is it just literally pushing the blood/fluid around?

Almond oil can help to lighten the dark circles under your eyes and reduce under-eye puffiness. This is thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Almond oil also contains retinol, vitamin E, and vitamin K, which can keep the delicate skin under your eyes smooth without irritating it.

So is it better to go almond oil or vitamin C?

i think coconut oil and olive oil is better. Avocado oil is supposed to be good too. Castor Oil is good but can cause pimples. Bio oil is good. Victoria Principal used to make this enzyne mask, OMFG. I would put it on at night and wake up in the morning and LITERALLY wrinkles were erased from my face. I'm not kidding. I was crushed when it was discontinued. Live a clean life and hydrate, hydrate, HYDRATE and moisturize moisturize MOISTURIZE.

by Anonymousreply 4603/16/2019

The point being is that there is a lot of natural stuff, with zero chemicals, that you can use that are just as good or better. I rotate what I use throughout the year. In the winter when it's really dry I buy shea butter and cocoa butter. I put them both in a glass container in hot pan of water on the stove, set on low, until they melt. Stir them together and let it cool back to a solid. I do that about twice a week and rotate with almond oil. Almond oil is always for around the eyes. I used coconut oil in the summer because I don't need a heavy moisturizer. It also helps that the natural moisturizers are about one tenth of the price of chemicals that may not work. Do a little research and try them out. You'll be pleasantly surprised at the difference. You won't go back to chemicals again.

by Anonymousreply 4703/16/2019

another vote for cold pressed almond oil - a large bottle is about 12 bucks and will last you a year at least. If your skin can handle it carrot seed oil is super effective for your skin and can slow the aging process - it can be comedogenic but if you use it under your eyes you can have amazing results.

Daily dermabrasion of the entire face and neck area also works. Nothing extremely harsh. Just cleanse your face with whatever facial cleanser you use and a softer version of a Buff Puff.

Wonder Puffs are excellent, if you can still find them, that is. I still see them at eBay and at other online sites, but they're more expensive than drugstore prices. I have no idea why drugstores no longer carry them. I used to purchase them at Duane Reade. The 8 pack was around $2.49.

Almond oil also contains retinol, vitamin E, and vitamin K, which can keep the delicate skin under your eyes smooth without irritating it. These naturally occurring ingredients may also help contract the dilated blood vessels that are causing the discoloration.How to use almond oil for dark circles When using almond oil for dark circles, buy a high-quality oil. The oil should be pure and cold pressed, and preferably organic. First, wash your hands with soap and water. Then, wash your face with your daily cleanser and gently massage a small amount of almond oil into the area under your eyes. The massage helps increase blood circulation. For best results, do this in the evening and let the oil sit overnight and wash it away in the morning.

Don't fight aging - it's part of getting older....

by Anonymousreply 7904/09/2019

Well you don't have to help it along. Taking care of yourself isn't fighting aging. Why shouldn't you want to moisturize your skin as you get older? It's your largest organ. You should take care of it. Another thing I want to mention is a filter for your shower. Especially if you are on city water that is chlorinated. The filter lasts about a year and takes five minutes to install. May reddish and flakey skin stopped almost overnight. Plus, if you do a little research, there is a myriad of reason on why you want to get chlorine out of your shower water. It also takes out the flouride in the shower and a lot of other shitty things that aren't good for your skin. The cost is about $35.00.

There's nothing wrong with taking preventative measures. Not saying to run out and get a face lift or fillers, but there are ways to take care of oneself without trying to look and act like you are grasping to remain youthful. Nothing wrong with looking healthy and vibrant, at any age! Thankfully, I inherited my mom's super thick wavy hair. It's greying but still looks healthy and thick.

I do notice all my friends who were heavy partiers, all look older than their actual ages. One of them still smokes pot daily and still drinks, he looks like absolute crap. He's also gained about 40-50 pounds!

Use an oil cleanser (I use Burt's Bees and Vichy). Moisturize with your chosen cream (I use Olay Regenerist and Nivea original cream) and then apply a layer of oil on top of this. Nothing will erase wrinkles permanently apart from injections / fillers, but you can make your skin look pretty smooth and amazing. Oh, and start drinking a shit-ton of lemon water throughout the day. Moisturizing from within makes all the difference.

I should just get the two-in-one (Olay luminous whatever with spf30). But I'm reading that USA sunscreen does not protect against UVB photo-ageing. You need Asian sunscreen with PA++++ rating for that.

Also put sunscreen on the tops and backs of ears- it's very common for men to get skin cancer on the ears because of short hair. Also If you're using a chemical based sunscreen, apply 20-30 minutes before you're actually in the sun, because it takes that much time for the chemicals to work. I will also add to throw it away every year and buy a new one.

If it's just puffiness and dark circles, find a product with caffeine. If it's wrinkles, still use a product with caffeine but go higher end like Sisley to slow down the process. But if you don't want wrinkles at all I'm afraid none of the products will reverse the ones you already have and the solution is an eye job but if you're male don't get one because it makes men look trans.

Who the hell would recommended the strongest percentage of Retin/Tretinoin?! Are you completely bonkers? There is no .01 strength anyway. Retin-A has three strengths of tretinoin: 0.1 percent, 0.05 percent, and 0.025 percent.

A derma usually prescribes the lowest, 0.025, then sees how their patient reacts. I started with the 0.1, which was too strong. I now use 0.05% and my skin looks great.

There are five main types of retinoids used in the treatment of wrinkles: Retinyl palmitate. This is the least potent OTC retinoid. Retinaldehyde. This is an OTC retinoid that's slightly stronger than retinyl palmitate. Retinol. This is the strongest ingredient found in OTC retinoid products. Tretinoin. Tazarotene

What's going on with Rami Malek's baggy eyes?!

Isn't he kind of young to look like this?

My biggest complaint is under my mouth and chin area. Anyone else have that problem? If so, what do you do? Thanks

I've been using a product from Celestolite for my bags/wrinkles under my eyes. Used properly, they disappear. Just a tiny dab under each eye every week. Not sure if this product is sold in the U.S.

You only use it once a week R143?

by Anonymousreply 14404/13/2019

Yes. Or if I have a special date and want to look my best.

Which one of their products are you using R145?

by Anonymousreply 14604/13/2019

Never mind R145. I should have checked you link. The reviews are mixed on that.

R143, that product costs most of my monthly rent. In London!

Anyone use butt-paste?

$1000 for that stuff @R143??? You might as well go to a professional.

Silk pillowcases will help prevent further wrinkles, but you really can't reverse what's already there with anything topical.

you can find less expensive(ly packaged) squalane than Biossance. I've been using some for a few weeks and so far, love the results.

Did anyone see that 9-11 episode where the surgical staff passed out from a gas leak and the patient is rescued with her forehead flapping down and her neck skin peeled off? It put me off surgery. Yikes!

Haaa I worked on that episode, r156, the spfx was AWESOME in person. It was supposed to be worse, with more blood, and the flap further down, but it was a little too gory and not comedic enough.

[R34] according to the Vermont Country Store, almond oil was Jackie Kennedy’s beauty secret.

Almond oil is fantastic. Sometimes I put some on my no-no and all hell breaks loose!
