Hey, everyone

As the title of the thread says, I'm only 20 years old but i have huge lines developing underneath my eyes. I dont know if id really consider them wrinkles... its more like sagging skin. I took a picture of it.

my skins generally not as oily as it looks in the picture... mostly just the fact that its hot here so im sweating a lot lol.

but does anyone know what causes something like this? or if there is anything to heal it, or at least stop it from getting worse?

Thanks in advance

Hola & Welcome!

I think that is eyebags. Do you get plenty of sleep or stress out playing with your computer games?

You have beautiful eyes...

I am sincere. Too much sleep as I have heard can be the same as lack of sleep.


And I think you can use Rivatalift Eye Cream by L'OREAL Paris and they are avalaible over the counter at a reasonable price. Try also putting cucumber on your eyes with a face mask once or twice a week. Never get beyond 10 hours of sleep since you don't need it coz your young. You can also try facial excercise for the eyes and the video is available on youtube.

thanks for the advice everybody. i ordered some eye cream and im taking a multivitamin with K in it now, so hopefully that helps.

i took another picture because i think it does a better job of showing what the lines are really like.

Hi,

Here are some good tips for healthy skin regime based on my 25 year knowledge and self experimentation.

The essential keys to healthy skin are not found in a bottle or jar of expensive skin care product. They are found in the every day habits and diet of every woman attempting to improve her appearance. Nutrition especially is a very important detail that many women might overlook when attempting to improve the appearance of their skin.

Every Day Ways to Attain Healthy Skin

The proper consumption of water is an essential first step in improving skin health. It ensures the body is receiving enough oxygen and stays properly hydrated, flushing out the bad and constantly supplying nutrients needed for healthy skin.
Another natural method of maintaining healthy skin is to avoid over exposure to the sun. By using sun screen on a daily basis and staying out of direct sunlight for more than a couple hours at a time, women can avoid unsightly sun spots and dry skin that result from too much UVA or UVB rays.
Sleep is a great method of rejuvenating and enhancing healthy skin. By getting at least 6 hours of sleep every night, women are giving their skin the time it needs to rejuvenate and repair from the stress of every day life. Without that rest, the effects of stress and sleep deprivation will make their first mark on the surface of otherwise healthy skin in the form of bags, puffy eyes, dry skin and blemishes.
Nutrients are another essential aspect of retaining healthy skin. Without the right balance of nutrients on a daily basis, skin will begin to show signs of its age and wear. Vitamins such as B1 which enhance circulation and B2 without which skin will start discolor, are vital to keeping healthy skin as shiny and supple as possible.
Healthy skin that is washed on a regular basis will remain blemish free as well. Depending on the level of oil production for any given individual, how skin is washed will change. A daily regiment of non-soap cleansers and toners will keep oil and dirt free of the pores and blemishes from ruining otherwise perfectly healthy skin.

Five Tips for Healthy Skin
Additionally, these simple tasks can help to reduce the wear and tear on your skin that leads to common skin problems and unsightly blemishes.

• Keep hair out of the face to reduce the chance of excess oiliness and blemishes
• Oily hair care products only increase the risk of facial blemishes.
• Nutrition and a proper diet ensure hydration, oxidation, and nutrients for healthy skin.
• Fish consumption or fish oil supplements help supplement healthy skin.
• Use warm water and a non-soap cleanser to wash your skin, keeping it clear and unobstructed.

Along with the common aspects of a healthy lifestyle, these tips will ensure that your healthy skin remains that way for years to come.

Sincerely,

Maya McMahon

I have recently developed this problem, however, I am a bit older, I am currently 23 year old male. I will admit that within the past year I have gone with little sleep and my diet has become worse, but is it too late for me to improve the lines underneath my eyes? No one in my family except my near 40 year old sister has them.

Men, you all have to remember that to most of us ladies we don't really look at your skin the way we look at ours. I don't know a single straight male friend who has been hampered or has lost dates due to lines around the eyes, and I also don't have any female friends who have told me "I like him, but his eye wrinkles prevent me from going out with him.." LOL!

So what I am saying, is that we females really don't care very much about the wrinkles on your face. As a matter of fact, most of us think they are sexy on guys, and we don't even call them "wrinkles"..we call them Character Lines -no joke! If you don't believe me, take a look at George Clooney, Tom Cruise and even Brad Pitt -all of these guys have MAJOR eye wrinkles or lines, and all of them are considered sexy men.

Don't let the skincare industry do to you what they do to women, which is scare us beyond belief about lines and wrinkles to the point we don't feel "pretty" unless we are trying to achieve a lineless face that only a 16yr old has. You guys are sexy no matter how many lines you have to us ladies, and those lines only add "character" to your face, which we also love.

Now, if your a gay man, then it's a different story, as my gay male friends tell me that unfortunately a lot of gay men are too obsessed with how they look, and are very judgmental towards each others weight and skin condition. I know all gay men can't be stereotyped this way, but ALL my gay male friends (I used to model so I have many) have told me this is how it is for them.

Good luck and welcome to the forum..and stop worrying about wrinkles..you look great! =)

I'm sorry, but if all the women you are hanging out with are only concerned with your "nice face", then you need to meet better quality women. Women are not like men for the most part. Men first look at girls eyes, then her breasts, then her body..and THEN try to get to know her. Men are much more interested in the physical then the emotional, especially at first. Women are usually not like this, that is if they are educated women with good hearts. Now, if you want a shallow girl who only likes you because you have a "nice face", then ok. But just remember, as soon as you start showing any lines or age on your face, that shallow girl will move on to the next "pretty face".

You want to know what I and my other female friends look for in a guy? Keep in mind I used to be a model, and most of my girlfriends are models too, so we aren't ugly girls desperate for a man -we can usually have our pick of men. There are TONS of good looking guys with nice faces and lots of muscles from working out everyday..that isn't anything special..it is very common nowadays..but the mistake these "pretty boys" make is thinking this is all that matters and is their ticket to having women...WRONG! Quality ladies first look to see if you have a brain..are you smart? Can you talk to us like an intelligent person, and not just b*llshit around about stupid stuff? Are you a gentleman? Do you treat us like the most important thing in the world (even if we aren't), open the car door for us, and treat us and talk to us with respect, the way you are supposed to treat a lady? Do you have a good career and education? This is probably the most important thing to us, because we don't want to end up with a guy who has no ambition, most of us want to go somewhere in life.

Never, ever underestimate the attraction women feel for men with intelligence, good hearts and success. Sure, we don't want a guy who looks like a troll..but lines and wrinkles aren't something most of us care about when we love a man. And THAT'S the key word..Love..because if a woman falls in love with you..and it is Real Love..she didn't do it because you have few wrinkles under your eyes.

If you don't want to believe me, that's fine. I can't change your mind and you can believe what you want. But the fact is, unless you go to a Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon to have an expensive and painful eye treatment, you need to just do the best you can with over the counter eye creams, focus on something else, and learn to live with the lines on your face.

And if you want a REALLY good eye cream, go buy Lancome's Progres Eye Cream. It is a very "old school" greasy eye cream, but many models like myself love this stuff, because it DOES make your eyes look better while you use it, because it fills in the wrinkles temporarily by flooding your skin with moisturizers. Your eyes will look a little greasy, but that's better than them looking dry and crinkly right? lol...


Good luck to you!

Hi Mike

I see just a little puffiness and a slightly darker shadow in the inner corner under your eye. To target this small issue effectivly, focus first on the most common causes; too much coke and / or sugar in the diet lately. Some are very sensitive to coffee and too much salty foods. Fast foods in general are known to cause puffiness in the face. Any allergies in general too. pollen, animals... If you can manage to spend some recreational time in sun and fresh air every day you are on your way to looking healthy and radiant :)

And as you also mentioned, hot weather tend to make any puffiness issues more visible. Especially the kind with very dense air, when lightning and thunder is more likely.
