How to Reduce Eye Wrinkles and Fine Lines



Are you starting to notice the first signs of ageing around your eyes?

Learn how to reduce eye wrinkles and fine lines to give your skin a fresh and radiant look below.


Although we can’t be rid of eye wrinkles permanently there are a six key ways to help you reduce the appearance of fine lines and eye wrinkles, including:


1.   Avoid excessive sun exposure

Sun is the number one cause of wrinkles. When outside always remember to wear a protective sunscreen, that offers UVA and UVB protection like NIVEA’s SUN Protect & Light Feel Sunscreen Lotion SPF30.


2.   Apply a nourishing and protective eye cream

The skin around our eyes is far more delicate than the rest of your face. Specialised, gentle products like NIVEA’s Cellular Hyaluron Filler Anti-Age Eye Cream contain active ingredients Hyaluronic Acid, Magnolia Extract, and Creatine to help visibly reduce fine lines and eye wrinkles and accelerate your skin's own cell renewal.


3.   Get your eyes checked

Squinting can form grooves that lead to wrinkles. Get your eyes checked to find out if you need contacts or glasses.


4.   Include more fish in your diet

Salmon and other cold-water fish are high in omega-3 – the essential fatty acid that helps prevent wrinkles by nourishing your skin and keeping it youthful and supple.


5.   Use eye make-up remover

Remove your eye make-up every night to prevent impurities that cause fine lines and under eye wrinkles from penetrating your skin. An eye make-up remover, like NIVEA’s Daily Essentials Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover, works to hydrate and protect the sensitive skin around the eye.


6.   Wear a protective day cream

A day cream with SPF protection and active anti-ageing ingredients visibly reduces wrinkles and prevents new ones from appearing. NIVEA’s Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream increases the natural Q10 and Creatine levels in your skin to help fight eye wrinkles.


It’s widely accepted that the onset of under eye wrinkles is inevitable and we will all be affected eventually. However, there are a lot of different factors that determine how quickly the ageing process, and the onset of wrinkles like crows feet, will progress.

The skin around the eyes stays firm and supple when we’re younger due to the production of collagen and elastin which is why you don't have eye wrinkles at an early age! However, as we get older these aren’t produced as quickly, which reduces skin elasticity. What’s more, the skin thinning under the eyes is a natural process, causing it to lose its resilience, and under eye wrinkles to form. This is made worse by the fact that there are no glands around the eyes that produce oil to keep the area hydrated.


If not done properly, the cleansing process can be very harsh on your delicate skin and can contribute to premature skin thinning. A recipe for disaster when it comes to preventing wrinkles under your eyes.

Use a makeup remover that is extra gentle on the skin like NIVEA MicellAIR water for sensitive skin. This removes even waterproof mascara whilst caring for the sensitive eye area.

If you prefer face wipes, try the NIVEA 3-in-1 Cleansing Wipes. They are non-woven so have a smooth texture for protecting the delicate eye area, and no rubbing or scrubbing is required to remove even waterproof mascara.

Always be as gentle as you can with your makeup removal technique - don’t pull or tug on the skin. NIVEA cleansing products are gentle and effective to not require rubbing consistently to remove even the hardest makeup.
