Erase wrinkles around eyes

The skin around the eyes is delicate and thin — here appear first age-related changes. The skin loses its freshness, there puffiness and fine lines, swelling, dark circles. Alas, it is a natural process caused by the structure of the skin in this place. There is almost no subcutaneous fat and sebaceous glands, almost no muscle supporting skin elasticity.

Collagen fibers (and in fact, they hold the structure of the skin) around the eyes resemble a mesh, which is stretched in all directions, and the soft subcutaneous tissue leads to the tendency to swelling. Of course, we can't change the structure of the skin, but we can look after it closely and carefully.

And such care will surely be able to push unwanted signs of age in the distant future. In fact, the cause of such problems as dryness, fine lines, puffiness, circles, irritation of the skin, along with natural factors may be inept, careless skin care around the eyes or a poor choice of cosmetics.
