Natural Ingredients That Can Help in Toning Sagging Eyes


Retinol, in other words, Vitamin A has been proven by various dermatologists to aid in treating bags around the eyes. It will also help you in clearing the laughter lines around the skin thus making your skin look a lot smoother.

If you feel your eye area sags due to genetics, don’t stress, retinol will help reduce this. It works by boosting collagen production in the cells which makes the skin firmer and reduces the appearance of dark circles.

Although the ingredient is safe on skin, seek medical advice from a doctor before using any product that is formulated using retinol. The component can be uncomfortable around they eye area, and it should be applied with caution.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid helps in moisturising the skin making it soft and tightens it by making it thicker. This reduces puffiness around the eyes making the area appear firmer. However, if the eye bags are due to extreme water absorption, hyaluronic acid is not a good option for you since it will just worsen the situation.

Amino Oligoelements

Amino Oligoelements is another ingredient that has been proven to work well in toning the eye area. It comprises copper and zinc attached to amino acid peptides.

It has high moisturising properties, and the minerals give the skin elements that nurture the puffy eye area. This helps in minimising the appearance of sagging eyes by toning the skin. Amino Oligoelements is used widely in skin care products since it improves the health of the cells giving you youthful looking skin.

Though these active ingredients are found in both over the counter creams and prescribed creams by dermatologists, research them before using as they may cause allergic reactions such as peeling, redness, and itching. If prescribed by a doctor, follow the guidelines and if purchased over the counter carefully read the labels.

Wrinkles and fine lines

Truth said, fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area are the first things we notice when age catches up with us. Once the skin is not able to produce enough collagen and elastin (the ingredients which keep it elastic), deep lines and wrinkles start to show up. They appear gradually, and within no time, they steal our beauty. Here’s what you can do to help reduce this.

The eye area does not replenish the moisture which is lost from frequent rubbing of the eyes. This can leave the area dry which leads to deep lines and wrinkles appearing. To avoid this happening use moisturising creams to help you keep your skin soft and well hydrated.

Enjoying that roll up? Quit smoking; it will help you reduce the appearance of the deep lines and wrinkles.

Other than rotting your teeth, making your fingers yellow and increasing your chances of cancer, smoking will also make your wrinkles and deep lines more intense.

Final tips

Other than the application of serums and creams, watch what your eating as this will help you maintain healthy and youthful looking skin. Consumption of foods rich in Vitamin C or Ascorbic acid such as kale, broccoli, cabbage, etc will aid in treating the bags around the eye area.

Vitamin C stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that will help in clearing the dark patches on the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Iron-rich foods like beans and red meat will help you do away with dark circles and deep lines on the surface. Tried everything and it seems not to work? Makeup is there to enhance your look and hide the signs of under eye bags and dark circles.
