Wrinkles Around Eyes, Face & Neck?
Why do we get wrinkles around the eyes?
Eye wrinkles are a common cosmetic concern and they refer to the folds of skin that can form around the eyes.
Did you know that there are three different types of eye wrinkles?
Firstly, there are dynamic wrinkles and these are creases in the skin that form from making specific faces over time. For example, if you smile a lot, you may develop creases in the corners of your eyes. The thing about these wrinkles is that you can only see them when you contract certain muscles.
Secondly, there are static wrinkles and these develop due to skin damage. Static wrinkles are those fine lines and folds in the skin that are visible even when muscles aren’t contracting. They appear under the eyes, on the forehead between the eyes, or in the corners of the eyes. And with time, even dynamic wrinkles will turn into static wrinkles.
Thirdly, there are wrinkle folds which are deep, age-related folds in the skin. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity - creating wrinkle folds.
How to help treat the skin area around the eyes
The all natural ingredients in our Simply Eye Serum help to tighten and tone the delicate skin around the eyes as well as targeting dark circles and bags under the eyes. The ingredients include almond oil with its emollient properties that help your skin balance water loss while relieve irritation and inflammation; Rosemary essential oil with anti-inflammatory agents to reduce swelling and puffiness while helping to strengthen capillaries and reduce inflammation; Baobab oil with A, E and F as well as phytosterols which encourage new collagen production; Frankincense essential oil which keeps existing cells and tissues healthy; and Cypress essential oil to stimulate the all important blood flow.
Why do we get wrinkles on our face?
Wrinkles are caused by a combination of factors, some of which we can control but others which we cannot.
- Age is one and as we have already mentioned, as we get older, our skin naturally becomes less elastic and more fragile. When we produce natural oils, our skins become drier, making our skin show more wrinkles.
- The fat in the deeper layers of our skin can diminish which can cause loose, saggy skin and more-pronounced lines and crevices.
- Our exposure to UV light is the primary cause of early wrinkling as such exposure breaks down our skin's connective tissue — collagen and elastin fibers, which lie in the deeper layer of skin (dermis). Then without the supportive connective tissue, our skin loses strength and flexibility and starts to sag and wrinkle prematurely.

How to tackle wrinkles on the face - and elsewhere
While we may not be able to prevent age lines or fine lines in the long term, it is certainly possible to naturally smooth and reduce them around the lips, on the neck, around eyes, and anywhere else on the body with our H-Glow Formula which will quickly seal in moisture - and promote supple skin. The all natural formula will penetrate deeply, aiding rapid skin repair without the use of harmful additives or chemicals. The essential oils used will hydrate, nourish and moisturize, help the skin to heal and speed up regeneration while improving its tone and elasticity.
The Formula comes with full instructions and is applied to the cleansed face and neck while additional drops may be massaged directly into any fine lines themselves to help to smooth out those affected areas by giving a more youthful and fresh appearance.
Why do we get wrinkles on our neck?
Most of us can easily spot wrinkles that appear on the face and eyes but perhaps it is not as easy to spot the lines that develop on the neck but as we start to age, we may notice lines forming on our neck. These are known as neck wrinkles or neck lines and can develop around our shoulder blades or higher up our neck close to our face.
The main factors that can cause lines and wrinkles over time:
Neck wrinkles are exactly what they sound like -- wrinkles that develop on and around your neck. You may notice wrinkles and other lines form when you bend your neck or move your head in certain directions.
As you grow older, it’s normal for your skin to become thinner and less elastic. You may notice that you have less fat under certain areas of your skin than you did before or that your skin has a more coarse, rough texture. Like other wrinkles, neck wrinkles are a natural sign of aging that develop as your skin becomes thinner and less elastic.
Below the surface of your skin, changes also occur in its chemical composition. Proteins (such as type VII collagen, which provide your skin with stability) become less common, weakening the bond between your inner and outer skin layers. These changes can also combine with the effects of gravity.
Habits and activities that damage your skin, such as spending lots of time in the sun or smoking, may cause neck wrinkles and other signs of aging to develop faster.
How to give the skin on your neck some love tooYou can help to prevent neck wrinkles by practicing good skincare habits and living a healthy life.
