Why do wrinkles appear in the eyes?

Loss of skin elasticity:

The real reason why wrinkles appear on the skin in the eye area, lip contour, chin, neck, etc. is because the skin is losing its properties. The elasticity that is related to the production of collagen allows the skin not to regenerate as before.

As a consequence, in the event of any loss of volume, the skin is left flaccid, unable to firm itself due to lack of elasticity.


The passage of age is a process that as human beings we cannot avoid, the body loses qualities and prioritizes other processes, as well as the production of other hormones over the properties of the skin, as a consequence the marks of age begin to appear as wrinkles.

Sun exposure:

Recent studies have shown that 75% of wrinkles are the result of sun exposure.

UV rays cause permanent skin damage, burns, and dehydration, which in the long term results in skin weakness and wrinkles.
