Deep Lines Under Eyes – Deep Lines are never something to be seen – the least in the face. However, our eye part meets it first because of the thin, sensitive skin: As early as the age of 25, first small (crease) Deep Lines can form around the eyes. They are often referred to as lower eyelid folds and are usually accepted in the early stages. Because as a “laughter” they point to a cheerful man and that would probably be everyone.
Purely defined, the folds under the eyes belong to the mimic folds. They develop as a result of a sagging skin and connective tissue as well as a weakening facial muscles. With age, the eye Deep Lines are deeper and occur frequently, often they are of a so-called elastosis, reinforced, a skin lesion caused by UV radiation.
The folds are usually not affected by a psychological stress until mid-40th. From this age onwards, they are not only clearly visible but are usually accompanied by other symptoms of the eye, such as tear sacks or crow’s feet. The entire face loses its attractiveness and vitality, it gets a tired, exhausted expression. Men and women are affected equally, but women usually develop a higher pressure of suffering.
Causes of Deep Lines Under Eyes
The reasons for the development of eye folds are manifold. The main reason is the natural skin aging process, which is influenced by intrinsic and extrinsic (environmental) factors.
The intrinsic factors include:
- The genetic predisposition,
- Hormonal disorders in menopause,
- Possibly also allergies and the taking of certain drugs.
The extrinsic factors are:
- Weather effects such as extreme heat and cold,
- The UV radiation of the sun,
- The pollutant and ozone pollution of the air and air
- The constant rubbing with the fingers count.
But also the consumption of addictive substances such as cigarettes and alcohol, an unhealthy, low liquid diet as well as a permanently stressful everyday life belong to it.
Since the skin under the eyes is particularly thin and sensitive, the natural aging process is very early. As early as the middle of the 20th century, the skin loses more and more elasticity and volume, which at the same time causes a skin excess.
At the same time, less and less collagen and elastin are produced in the advanced life of the organism. These are two proteins which are indispensable for the formation of stable connective tissue fibers and act as “water reservoirs” of the skin. If these proteins are missing, the connective tissue automatically loses its suppleness and tension, and the skin also dries out. Due to the lack of moisture, the skin shrinks, which considerably accelerates the formation of Deep Lines.
Other factors influencing the emergence of eye Deep Lines are the permanent activity of the eye ring muscles and the gravitational force. The many small muscles around the eye control the facial expressions and cause the overlying skin to be in constant motion. This permanent stress encourages the formation of Deep Lines under eyes, especially the laughter or the constriction of the eyes cause Deep Lines, later Deep Lines arise.
Deep Lines Under Eyes – What Helps?
Already with the first small creases, affected persons should check their life change. For the recovery of the Deep Lines, the body needs a lot of fluid – about two liters daily should be – sufficient supply of vitamin E and vitamin C, the trace element zinc helps to improve cell division. Smokers should urgently try to stop smoking and the consumption of alcohol should be significantly reduced. It is also important to have sufficient movement to strengthen circulation and promote blood circulation. Very important in this context is adequate sleep.
For the care of the eye part, dermatologically tested eye creams with the active ingredient Urea are recommended, in many cases also the support of cucumbers or tea bags on the eyes or the application of a curd mask. Eye folds can be combated particularly well with an eye mask overnight. This is because the process of cell renewal at night is eight times as fast as during the day. We also recommend plucking massages and special exercises of facial gymnastics, which help to relax the skin.
