It is often said that "people age before the eyes, look at people first, look at the eyes," as the windows to our hearts, the skin around the eyes is often thinner and more fragile than the rest of the face skin is more prone to aging and even lesions.
The skin around the eyes is about 0.03-0.06mm thick, which is about 1/3 to 1/5 of the thickness of the skin on the face.
In general, sebaceous glands and sweat glands in the skin can secrete substances that prevent dehydration and lubricate the skin, and resist some of the external environmental damage to the skin, which is the natural protective film of the skin. The eye area contains almost no sebaceous glands and sweat glands and is much less than other parts of our skin, so it is relatively dry and lacking in moisture.
Under normal conditions, a person blinks about 10,000 times daily, driven by the eye muscles. The eye muscles are the most active in the face, and the skin around the eyes is prone to wrinkles, so the eyes age relatively quickly.
Daily working for a long time staring at the computer and cell phones, it is easy to overuse the eyes leading to visual fatigue. Many girls wear makeup, which will accelerate the aging of the eye skin, such as fine lines, eye bags, dark circles, crow's feet, tear troughs, and so on.
1. Studies have shown that 90% of visible aging of the skin is caused by UV damage.
2. Blepharospasm: Cumulative exposure to ultraviolet light causes a benign, yellow, slightly elevated lesion of the conjunctiva on the nasal or temporal side of the blepharosphenoid region. It is usually uncomfortable and can usually be left untreated.
For some of the dark circles under the eyes, eye creams do work. But we often must consult a professional before using an eye cream to prevent skin irritation or damage.
In most cases, a large part of premature aging of the eyes is due to our wrong work and rest. Staying up late for long periods and lacking outdoor exercise will speed up the aging of the eyes.
When you go out in the summer, choosing a good pair of UV protection glasses protects your eyes and is also the key to slowing down eye aging.
