Three Ways to Transform Aging Eyes
Every woman's eyes age at a different rate. Genetics, bone structure, sun exposure and the state of the skin all play a role in how old, or young, your eyes look. And because our eyes are typically one of the first thing to show our true age, we start pulling and prodding them in the mirror as soon as the tell tale signs like droopy eyelids and wrinkles set in. So here are a few ways to make your eyes look youthful again.
First, try a powerful eye cream. We aren't talking about the moisturizer you also happen to put under your eyes; we are talking about a high-performance, get-you-results kind of eye cream or serum. Kinerase Advanced Eye Cream ($56) encourages skin's natural production of hyaluronic acid to reduce and prevent early signs of aging, fade dark circles and calm puffiness.
Next, try makeup. The easiest way to make the brows look thicker, fuller and lifted is to fill them in. By properly shaping and filling in the eyebrows and highlighting the brow bone, you can give the visual effect of lifted brows. See an eyebrow specialist and get your brows arched professionally. This will give you a good guide to fill in your brows and highlight the right areas of your brow bone.
Finally, if eyelid sagginess is really bothering you, consult a doctor. The only way to permanently fix a saggy brow or hooded saggy upper-eyelid is with surgery. A skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon can treat a saggy brow line with an endoscopic surgical brow lift to correct the shape of the eye and re-establish height. And to address loose skin on the eyelid, an upper blepharoplasty surgery can be performed to remove the extra skin. If you have a hollowed look to the eye, caused by a loss of volume, it can be corrected using fat transfer or injectables and fillers to plump the area.
