The skin under and around our eyes is among the body’s most delicate. It’s thin and contains numerous blood vessels but no oil glands to produce and maintain moisture.
Dry and dehydrated skin is the most common cause of eye wrinkles. When your skin lacks moisture, the texture suffers.
In addition to clogging our pores, dirt, pollution, and other environmental factors suck the moisture out of our skin, contributing to dryness and dehydration.
Any movement of facial muscles helps develop grooves beneath the skin, especially those that cause the eyes to crinkle.
Our genes play a significant role in how we age, including how quickly and deeply we develop wrinkles around the eyes.
