Everyone wants to retain a healthy, youthful appearance, but over time, the aging process makes lines, creases and saggy skin more visible. The eye area, in particular, is the first area that shows aging. As we get older, the muscles and tissues that surround the eye become weakened and begin to sag. The natural fats and fluids accumulate in the lower eyelids and the delicate skin under the eye loose elasticity and the skin become loose.
As that happens, our eyes start to appear puffy and swollen. Dark circles form around the eyes, giving you an aged appearance. These changes are caused by a number of factors, some which are not controllable. Those of us who do not get enough sleep often experience saggy eyes, just as those who are going through hormonal changes.
Also, allergies contribute to the creation of lines and wrinkles. Not only does the pollutants irritate the eyes, but it causes us to rub our eye excessively. Rubbing causes the thin skin under the eye to stretch. It also causes capillaries to burst, resulting in bruises forming under the eye.
Aside from external contributions, our eyes respond to internal conditions such as our food consumption. An unbalanced diet may cause deficiencies in the minerals and vitamins that nourish our skin and keeps it supple and resilient. Without consuming the right amounts of essential supplements, the skin suffers and ages prematurely. Genetics also play a part in premature aging of the eyes, and while that can not be avoided, it does not prevent home remedies from taking effect.
