Fortunately, here are some methods on how to get rid of under eye wrinkles. Some of these are especially useful on the days you’ve been sleep deprived and stressed.
Both coffee and cocoa powder both are rich in antioxidants which fight free radical damage. Applying the powder every day helps the skin absorb the antioxidants and reduce wrinkles.
Coconut oil contains lots of Vitamin E which is essential for maintaining the skin. The pack mainly works by moisturising the skin to keep the wrinkles away.
Olive oil is one of the gentlest home remedies to treat under eye wrinkles as it helps keep the skin moisturised. It is also packed with Vitamin E and K along with antioxidants that keep the skin healthy.
Yoghurt is a rich source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) which help exfoliate the skin and promote the growth of healthy new tissue from underneath. This keeps the skin smooth and wrinkle-free. This face pack also moisturises the skin.
Aloe vera’s nourishing properties are highly effective in treating wrinkles and restoring the smoothness of the skin. It is rich in Vitamins E and C and beta-carotene which protect the skin and help to keep it young.
Cucumber has a wonderful cooling effect on the eyes and eases the blood flow around the eyes. Poor blood flow can often make them look puffy and dark. Being loaded with antioxidants, it also protects the skin and improves collagen production which is much needed for the skin’s elasticity.
This face pack is a great remedy for deep wrinkles, and bags under the eyes. Papaya is loaded with nutrients that nourish and protect the skin, and at the same time, reduce wrinkles.

Other than the quick remedies to get rid of under-eye wrinkles, these tips will ensure that wrinkles are kept at bay.
A healthy diet is the key to longevity and good looks. Maintaining a balanced diet is the best way to ensure your body gets all the necessary nutrients. Consume lots of fruits and vegetables, especially fruits rich in Vitamin C. Plenty of protein is also needed for the growth and maintenance of skin tissue. Eat lean meats, fish and eggs for good protein.
Getting an ample amount of sleep every day is a good way to avoid under eye wrinkles. Sleeping 7-8 hours a day ensures the eyes are properly rested and not strained. Hydration is key to keep the skin soft and elastic and avoid wrinkles. Have a minimum of 8 glasses of water every day to ensure there’s enough water in the body.
Avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight and pollutants in the air. Both speed up the ageing process.
Quit smoking. Harmful chemicals in cigarettes can destroy collagen.
Pro-collagen creams are one of the most effective treatments for under eye wrinkles. The skin of babies is packed full of healthy collagen and hence their softness. As we get older, the rate and quality at which the skin produces collagen decreases. This occurs naturally with the ageing process but lifestyle factors are also a major contributor, for example, smoking and exposure to UV radiation can destroy collagen, leading to the formation of wrinkles. The labels of many anti-ageing creams have collagen mentioned on them for this reason. Although collagen cannot be directly absorbed into the skin due to its large molecular structure, pro-collagen creams keep the skin moisturised and enhance the rate at which natural collagen is produced. They take a while to show results but do make a significant difference.
Although ageing is a factor that is not under your control, living a healthy lifestyle with ample rest and nutrition can remove most of the causes of under eye wrinkles. Regularly using the remedies mentioned above should keep most of your wrinkles at bay.
