Aging often causes wrinkles and sagging skin, a worrying issue for many women. Sagging eyelids can hurt a person’s self-esteem and make them feel older than they really are, which is why everyone is looking for a quick fix. Luckily for you, we have several steps that can resolve the problem and make you feel rejuvenated!
In order to tighten the loose skin on your eyelids and strengthen the muscles around the eyes you should do eyelid exercises for ten minutes a day, four times a week. According to the Eva Fraser Fitness Center based in London, these exercises can considerably improve your appearance. Just raise your eyebrows and put a finger under your brow bone, then close your eyes and hold the position for six seconds. Open your eyes and repeat the exercise a couple of times.
A firming or an anti-aging eyelid cream should help you a lot. Loren Pickart, Ph.D. and the author of Skin Biology, suggests using some cream rich in copper peptides which can tighten the skin around your eyes and iron out wrinkles. However, be aware that some creams should not be applied directly on the eyelids.
Thermage is a new cosmetic treatment which warms the skin around your eyes using radio waves. The heat stimulates collagen production, tightening up your skin and giving it a youthful look. The FDA has approved this method as non-invasive and long-lasting.
If your eyelids are extremely drooping, the only option you are left with is blepharoplasty. This is a type of plastic surgery which removes the fat, skin and drooping muscles around your eyes. It is the last resort for people dealing with vision problems due to the sagging eyelids.
Dr. Loren Pickart recommends using minimal eye makeup to protect your eyelids against irritation and sagging. As scientific studies have shown, artificial colors in eyeshadows and eyeliners can cause sagging and destroy the delicate skin around your eyes.
