You must have heard the phrase “The eyes are the window to the soul”, correct? That's because, in addition to showing a large part of who we are, they also say a lot about our age and health. But how does the look influence our youth? As we age, the skin on our eyelids becomes sagging, excess skin becomes evident and it falls over our eyes, which are half-covered, which makes our whole face look tired. And this goes beyond the aesthetic issue, as drooping and sagging eyelids often interfere with good vision.

Why do signs of aging appear first in the eye area?

The eye area is very delicate and thinner than the other parts of the face, so the first signs of age such aswrinkles, sagging, fine lines and bags tend to become more visible in this area. One of the reasons why this happens is due to the large movement of the eyelids, as their muscles are made to perform automatic fast-twitch movements, such as those necessary for blinking and tearing.

In addition, the eye region has many vessels that absorb topical products used daily, making the skin more sensitive to allergies and irritations. There is also the influence of different external factors that canaccelerate aging, such asexposure to the sun without protection, for example. Over time, pigmented skin patches around the eyes, in shades of blue and brown, may also appear.

Sagging eyelids make many people uncomfortable and dissatisfied with their appearance, as this problem makes the look tired and not youthful. That's why we bring you the best treatments for eyelid sagging.

Sagging eyelids – and all the skin on our face – is a natural consequence of skin aging. With advancing age, skin sagging occurs due to decreased levels of collagen and elastin in the skin, associated with falls in the deep fat pads of the face and bone resorption. It is especially aggravated in thepost-menopause period, when collagen levels drop on a larger scale, leaving the skin 'loose'. This happens because the subcutaneous tissue is supported by the musculature and also by the bone framework. With advancing age and the influence of hormonal changes, the musculature thins and becomes less firm, which contributes to the upper and lower eyelids becoming flaccid and drooping.


Daily skin care can help prevent sagging of the eyelid region

Taking care of the skin daily helps to leave it looking hydrated and with more freshness. Many people use the moisturizer all over the face, but forget to use itaround the eyes. Therefore, an important tip is tohydrate this area daily. Hydration protects the skin and can provide a better appearance. Face and eye care should be different

Because it is thinner than the rest of the face, the eye area needs special care, capable of delaying the appearance of signs of age. For this, be sure toremove makeup, as the accumulation of residue accelerates aging and can cause stains on the skin. The eye area is delicate, so a good tip is to usecotton pads to apply the makeup remover and leave them on the eyes for a few seconds to then remove the makeup.

To help you keep your face clean and ready to receive other products that will help your skin to get younger and smoother, you can use some tools that are specially made for it, for example theFace Sculpt Kit, it promotes blood circulation and accelerate skin repair to improve skin elasticity, improve skin concerns like dark marks and overall dullness by regulating melanin overproduction and reduces fine lines and wrinkles and micro-current for a lifting effect. Helps with lymphatic circulation and detoxification. 

In order to prevent skin blemishes, photoaging and skin cancer, it is necessary to apply sunscreen to the eye area as well because it is a “thinner” skin, it is a region that suffers a lot from the consequences of photoaging. In addition, dermocosmetics with moisturizing action  treat and improve the eye area. Do not forget that they must be ophthalmologically tested and cannot contain irritating substances in their composition.

Antioxidants are also important, as we now know that most of the changes in aging occur through the action of free radicals. Vitamin C, E and ferulic acid are antioxidant ingredients that act both in preventing and attenuating the signs of skin aging.
