William Shakespeare, one of the greatest poets, once said – The eyes are the window to your soul. Unfortunately, for many of us, the eyes and the areas around them are also the first to reveal any tell-tale signs of aging as the skin around our eyes is very thin and delicate. After a sleepless night, the areas around your eyes become darker and fine lines start to appear.
With different stressors in our lives, it is no wonder that we are aging faster than we should. Fine lines, wrinkles, crow feet, droopy eyelids, eye bags will become more apparent as we age and if we do nothing to age-proof your eyes and give them the attention they need.
Learn how to reverse the effects of stress in our daily lives. Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics explains what you can do to keep your eyes in tip-top condition.
Erase The Lines and Crow’s Feet
NATURAL HOME REMEDY Aloe vera has antioxidant and hydrating properties. It contains 99% water and the rest are made up of essential vitamins and minerals that help moisturise and tone the skin. With its hydrating effects, the aloe vera gel will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping up the deficient areas and smoothen out the skin.
Squeeze out the gel in the aloe vera leaf and apply generously on the corners of the eyes where crow’s feet are visible. Apply after your shower and before you go to bed. Wash your face with cold water in the morning. Do this every night for 3 weeks. You will see visible improvement after a few weeks.
MEDICAL TREATMENT For some, creams and home remedies are not enough. A convenient, effective way of getting rid of crow’s feet is to undergo botox treatment. Botox – short for botulinum toxin – are injections to relax the muscles so that they can’t contract. Botox treatments are FDA-approved and are generally safe. It may take up to a week to see results and it can last from anywhere from 3 to 8 months.
Get Rid of Dark Eye Circles
NATURAL HOME REMEDY Raw potatoes have natural bleaching compounds that can help lighten dark circles and reduce the puffiness around the eyes. Grate 2 raw potatoes and extract the juice. Soak cotton pads in the juice and place them over your eyes. Rest for 15 to 20 minutes and rinse the eyes with cool water. Repeat it daily for 2 weeks.
MEDICAL TREATMENT If you are lazy to incorporate the natural home remedy into your skincare regime, why not opt for a one-time treatment to reduce the appearance of dark eye circles? Filler undereye rejuvenation is a very common treatment to effectively treat the undereye area, giving dramatic, long-lasting results. By injecting fillers under the eyes, it plumps up the deficient, hollow spaces to give you brighter, more youthful-looking eyes. By replacing loss volume around the eyes, appearance of dark eye circles will also reduce because the areas where were once sunken, are now hydrated and firmer.
Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift
NATURAL HOME REMEDY Cucumbers are an excellent choice for lifting droopy eyelids. Cucumbers are packed with minerals and vitamins such as thiamine, riboflavin, and vitamin B6. It also contains a substance called phytochemical. Cucumber lovers claimed that phytochemical can cause tightening of the skin by stimulating collagen production and firming the superficial layer of the skin.
You will be rewarded with lifted eyelids and tighter, firmer skin around the eyes if you place chilled cucumber slices on your eyes and leave them on for 20 minutes a day for 4 weeks.
MEDICAL TREATMENT In some serious cases where eyelids are heavy and eyes become hooded, putting cucumbers on your eyes will not have much effect. If left unchecked, it can even affect your vision.
In the past, undergoing the knife was the only solution to lifting the eyelids. In recent times, an advanced Korean technology called Agnes, allows the doctors to effectively treat hooded eyes and droopy eyelids by creating micro-wounds on the skin and introducing radiofrequency waves to stimulate collagen production, allowing your eyelids to lift and tighten, restoring a pair of youthful, bright eyes you once had.
