Examine Your Diet
Yes, it's true -- what you eat and drink has a direct impact on your skin's health. Eating right isn't just about keeping your waistline trim.
Remember that foods with a high salt content can cause your skin around the eyes to look bloated due to water retention -- same goes for alcohol, these effects are more common as you get older so the kick this salty habbit early for that fresh face look.

It's crucial that you drink water throughout the day. If you're thirsty, it means your body is sending you signals that it's already dehydrated.
When it comes to the foods that keep you looking your best, a diet high in fiber is important. Think things like oatmeal, celery, and antioxidant-rich foods like walnuts, kale, berries and artichokes.
Of course, smoking also creates deep lines around the eyes and the rest of the face. It also accelerates the aging process -- just one more reason to quit.
Use a Daily Eye Cream
The key to stopping wrinkles from forming?
Keeping your skin hydrated. By using an eye cream in both the morning and the evening, you'll ensure that your skin is moisturized at all times. Since the skin around our eyes is ultra-sensitive, it ages faster. By keeping it moisturized, you'll boost your skin's cell turnover and collagen production.
This means that the wrinkles you already have won't get any deeper and that you can prevent more wrinkles from forming.
Battle the Sun
It's true -- to stop wrinkles from forming, you need to limit your time in the sun. It's crucial that you wear sunscreen every day, but you may also want to consider throwing on a hat and sunglasses when outdoors.
You can still get the benefits of the sunshine the safe way, by taking a Vitamin D supplement each day.
Not only will this help to prevent eye wrinkles, but it can also help to ward off skin cancer. Since between 86-90% of skin cancer is a result of sun exposure, anything you can do to lessen the impact of the rays is a positive -- in many ways!
Get Some Rest
A lack of sleep doesn't just cause unsightly dark rings around your eyes. It also causes wrinkles, especially if you consistently ignore your body's need for sleep.
Sleep also causes your body to make specific hormones that are designed to promote cell turnover. A lack of sleep leads to an increase in cortisol, a hormone related to stress and anxiety. Cortisol dries the skin, slows your cell turnover, and even lowers your immune system.
So, try to sneak in a few extra hours of sleep when you can!
