Whats the best remedy for decreasing wrinkles under the eyes. I am 35 and they are getting more noticeable. Is coconut oil and evening primrose oil effective? Thanks!

Wrinkles are folds or ridges on the skin which are caused by a variety of factors like ageing, poor hydration, sun damage, and smoking. Wrinkles can occur all over the face, but are more prominent under the eyes. Wrinkles under the eyes are generally not indicative of any underlying medical condition, but can be aesthetically displeasing.Some of the remedies to reduce under eye wrinkles are listed below:

  • First and foremost, you should avoid using eye make-up if you have wrinkles under eyes. If you chose to wear eye-make-up, you must remove it before you sleep. You may wash it off with a mild cleansing agent and then wash it off with water. This will help prevent the affliction from aggravating and remove wrinkles under the eyes.
  • An effective remedy to remove wrinkles under the eyes is to massage coconut oil under the eyes every night before going to bed.
  • You could also use ginger and honey to relieve wrinkles under the eyes. Shred a piece of ginger, add a bit of honey, apply it around the eyes, and massage for a while.
  • Another eye wrinkles treatment is the use of castor oil. You may use unscented castor oil to massage under and around the eyes to cure wrinkles under the eyes.
  • You could also rub pieces of ripe pineapples on the skin and allow the juice and fibers to stay for a while. This would help reduce the wrinkles under your eyes.
  • One of the most effective remedies to relieve under eye wrinkles is the usage of sardines. You can places sardines under your eyes for fifteen minutes every day and you will see your under eye skin getting clear of wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Another effective under eye wrinkle treatment is the use of evening primrose oil. Primrose oil is known for its anti-ageing properties and as such, its application under the eyes for massaging helps reduce wrinkles, spots and fine lines—some of the prominent signs of ageing.

Other than these home remedies, you should protect yourself from the sun. If you are a smoker, you must quit smoking to cure under eye wrinkles. Do consume ample amounts of water to hydrate your skin and thereby prevent wrinkles. Also, your diet must contain vitamins including vitamin A and E, which helps reduce wrinkles and enhance vision.

Wrinkles are a typical characteristic feature of ageing. Proper care in the younger age helps in alleviating the same in a premature manner. Facial massage at regular intervals is effective in curbing premature wrinkles. Rapid circular upward motion is recommended. Facial by experts in a parlor is also equally helpful. Pinching the jaws between the fore finger and thumb reduces wrinkles in that area. Castor oil is also effective. Massage should begin from the neck and move up to the face. An excellent remedy for fine wrinkles is rubbing the face with the core of a pineapple. Topical application of apple and pineapple juice is an effective treatment procedure. Expired and unbranded creams are avoided. Clean the face and remove the makeup before retiring to bed. This simple technique helps in providing a fine complexion. Use of cleansing milk is recommended before every makeup, as it aids in removal of excess oil. Topical application of turmeric powder paste, made with sugarcane juice, is effective for wrinkles. Wipe the face with a wet cotton ball and lead a life free of stress.
