[PIC] 24 Years Old: Wrinkles Under Eyes Due to Bad Habits?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Since I was a young girl, I have already been plagued with dark circles under my eyes. But recently, it has worsened and now I even have wrinkles! I just noticed these lines about a week ago.

I'm just 24 years old (almost 25) and have developed undereye wrinkles due to:
-Lack of Sleep (I only get 5-6 hours of quality sleep per night)
-Lack of Water (I rarely get 8 glasses of water per day)
-Lack of Exercise (haven't been consistent, but I am underweight, not overweight)
-Staring at the Computer/Mobile Phone Screen for 14 hours+ a day.

-Junk Food
-Stress

 

This habit has been going on for several years.

My eyes are now tired and chronically bloodshot.

I was using a Dior eye cream prior to these wrinkles and even that did not stop these from forming.
I have just started to put coconut oil underneath my eyes, hoping they would disappear.

I am depressed because I have done this to myself. I would not be as upset if I was 35, since wrinkles would be expected. But I am just 24!

 

I want to get rid of these wrinkles for at least 10 more years and prevent new wrinkles. I have already started to change my habits.

I am still young and do not want fillers yet. What kind of alternative options do I have for treatment?

Yes, all those bad habits you mentioned are the reasons caused your eye bag, dark circle and wrinkles.

In a day, 11pm - 2am is the best repairing time for skin, you have to make sure you are fall a sleep in this period.

Eye skin is the weakest of the face, its thickness is just 1/4 of our face. Often stay up late and face to computer radiation will cause eye fatigue and dehydrated. This will cause poor blood circulation that it can't eliminate melanin. And this is what makes dark circle.

Eye wrinkle is the warning sign of aging, this will easily shows your age. This is due to the collagen and nutrition are easy to be loss which affect metabolism and damage elastic fibers. This is what causes eye wrinkles.

I strongly advice you strengthen the moisturizing of eye, promote blood circulation of eye. First solve the dark circles then the eye bags and wrinkles.

Honestly it looks like normal aging to me-- don't stress your beautiful self out further! Wrinkles and aging are natural and looking perfect and airbrushed only happens in magazines.

I'm 27 and I have those too!

 

I have collegues that are in their 30's that don't have those :(

 

I did have a bad habit of not removing make up before going to sleep. (not doing that anymore)

Also could it be from removing eye make up and pressing to hard?

Bad habits play a big role yes, but so do genetics, and your skin type. Usually, women with dry skin show signs of aging faster than ladies with oily and combination skin. Try to get plenty of sleep and drink more water, and don't sweat the small stuff - it will be beneficial for your entire body, not just the skin :)

Thanks for all the answers so far!

 

I have oily/combination skin. VERY Oily T-zone and nose, but the cheek/chin area is pretty normal, with dry patches here and there.

 

I also have a roundish face, with pretty chubby cheeks for being underweight.

 

I've been told by everyone that I will age well because of my facial structure, ethnicity (I have Asian genes), and skin type, so that is why I am upset that I did this to myself at this age. =(

 

I don't think my parents got wrinkles this early in life either. So I really think I ruined myself!

 

I kinda already know the "how" and the "why" part of why my under-eye wrinkles appeared.

 

Right now, I just want to know if I can get rid of my existing wrinkles and prevent more from forming for at least a decade.

 

For starters, any good products I can use that really works? Any facial treatments at the dermatologist/esthetician?

You should try to improve your habits if you want to see improvement. 

 

I have been using Vaseline (applied gently around and under my eyes) as a moisturizer at night, and it has worked better for me than any other moisturizer ( I also have very sensitive skin, esp around my eyes, and it is the only thing that has never caused me irritation).  After cleansing your face before bed, dab some Vaseline (gently, with very little pressure - no rubbing ) around and under eyes while your skin is still damp (it will help lock in some of the moisture better).

 

Make sure any facial products you use do not contain alcohol (alcohol dries out skin, and can be especially damaging to the delicate sensitive skin around the eyes). 

 

 

When cleansing, apply or removing eye makeup, be sure to be as gentle as possible (never pull or rub).

 

 

I also recommend sleeping more upright (with an extra pillow or two), as this will help less blood pool under your eyes while you sleep (less dark circles).

 

For wrinkles and general skin health, I recommend drinking more water, green tea and taking a supplement like Hydraplenish Hyaluronic Acid and/or Biosil daily.  (They help plump skin from within, hence less wrinkles).  Astaxathin and vitamin C are also important antioxidants to keep skin looking young. 

 

(* tip:  Adding lemon to green tea will help improve its effects)

 

Be sure to also wear sunscreen every single day, and lastly

 

reduce/eliminate sugar and alcohol in your diet (sugar depletes collagen in the skin,and alcohol can dry out skin). Incorporate more fresh fruits and veggies (rich in water and vitamins) into your diet instead.

I am also Asian, my skin is olive, normal  and I am 70 no wrinkles around eyes but slight wrinkle on forehead which is covered by bangs.  I spend around 8 hours in front of a screen most days but I keep strictly to 9-5 Mondays to Fridays.   Genetics come into it for sure BUT

  • try to get 8 hours sleep per night - do you have to spend that amount of time in front of a screen for your job or are you just addicted?
  • have your eyes checked to make sure you don't need glasses
  • try to drink more water, stay away from carbonated drinks
  • do try to eat more salads and fruit rather than pizzas and burgers, even subs are better
  • invest in a good product I use Monsia Skincare (a skin renewal system)

I hope this helps you.   I am sure you will be able to come back from the brink, don't despair and try to de-stress by closing your eyes every hour or so while you are in front of the screen, take a couple of deep breaths, stand up, throw your arms around and shake yourself before sitting down again.   Hang in there.

I had the same issues that you had.. I used to sleep very less and was super stressed and did not drink a lot of water and ate not so well either. I think many of us have been through this phase at some point in our lives. They go so so and that I started to look very ugly and was ashamed of my own face

 

so I decided to sleep early and sleep peacefully and started to eat healthy in general and I also used Dark Circles eye cream from Silvex Cosmetics because of the precious peptides and lots of natural extracts that helped with the dark eyes, wrinkles and ugliness in general around the eyes.. after 2 months with that cream and some changes in my life, it was much much better!

Bad habits do play a huge role. My friend sleeps 7-8 hours a day and go through the daily skincare routine (wash>tone>moisturize) and sometimes with the scrub and masks. More importantly, she drinks lots of water. 

Her skin looks great, with some occasional blackheads. But still radiant and without the signs of aging. 

 

First off, I would suggest drinking lots of water and sleep well.

Fortunately Dear Valentine , You are facing only extrinsic aging in which you can beat it by truing these bad habits into good ones .I recommend you to :

- Sleep well ( at least 7 to 8 hours )

- Drink water as mush as you can and don't forget to drink a glass of water after you woke up as its good for cleaning your face.

- Start working out with simple exercise

- eat healthy Food

- Concerning the huge time spent at computer/mobile you can decrease that by involving in more activities such as reading Books , leaning stuff like cooking ... etc 

And finally I believe that 90% of your problem comes from stress . Believe me . There is nothing in this world worth stressing for .turn your life into a better life , a happier one . begin by working out , reading book , watching happy movies and get rid of those news . get rid of your negative friends .... etc.

 

I really hope you could get back to the track . Good Luck

    • You might be in shape otherwise but still have a lump of fat jutting out from under your chin. And we agree, that totally spoils all the photos. But why don't you use makeup to get rid of double chin till such time you lose enough weight to get a chiseled jaw line? So even if you haven't managed to shed all that extra flab yet, but have a party that you just can't miss, don't get upset about the double chin. You can still use makeup cleverly to hide it and look fabulous in all your photos. Here are some makeup hacks that will come in handy:
    • The trick to take care of dry skin is to feed it with moisture. But, there's a drawback, we cannot overfeed it as it may lead to breakouts, acne, and pimples. Therefore, it is important to use the right product that helps to hydrate the skin without much harm.  So how do we combat dry skin?  Here are our favourite and effective product that helps to fight the dry flaky skin.  Cosrx - Hyaluronic Hydra Power Essence Hyaluronic Acid is the king of moisturization and this essence by Cosrx is full of it. It draws water into the skin and immediately moisturizes the dry & depleted skin.  Results: Skin is softer and moisturized, leaving bumpy and dry skin silky smooth. It's excellent for dry to normal skin types.  Some By Mi-H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream The name uses the word hydro max moisture to convey that nothing hydrates better than this! It soothes skin irritation, reduces skin redness and wrinkles. It also has a whitening effect and smoothes rough patches of skin. The 7 types of hyaluronic acid fill in from the deepest layer of the skin and create a barrier so that it can maintain the optimum moisture for a prolonged time. Make sure to use it after cleansing the skin.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Face Masks are excellent for providing ample moisture and long term hydration to the skin.  Here are our recommendations: Eunyul- Natural Moisture Mask Pack Lined with green tea extract, the facemask works to provide ample moisture to the skin while the collagen helps to reboot the skin in a short time.  Missha-Airy Fit Sheet Mask (Cucumber) This eco-friendly rice cake sheet mask is 2 times thinner than a normal sheet mask. Cucumber helps to effectively help combat dryness while the thin sheet mask feels airy and lightweight. 
    • People tend to collect an amazing quantity of items over the years. Reasons for keeping items include an emotional attachment, an intention to reuse or fix the items in the future, or a wish to pass them on to others. However, for many items, if you haven't used them in over a year, you probably don't need them. Getting some help to get rid of all your rubbish isn't a bad move. Don’t want to do it yourself? These people have you covered. Leave all the heavy lifting work to them. With a professional firm like eMop, you don’t need to worry about the pick-up or disposal of those old items that you don't need any more.
    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.
