What Part of Your Face Ages First?What Part of Your Face Ages First?
THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 2010
It's the eyes! The eyelid area tends to show visible signs of aging because the skin is thinnest and most delicate. (The soles of your feet have the thickest skin, in case you were curious.) The most fragile skin is where the effects of sun, time and stress show up first. It also gets the most movement and manipulation from squinting, rubbing, putting in your contact lenses, and perfecting your e.l.f. eye makeup! The eyelid area can also start to look veiny and darker from a combined assault from sun, allergies, sleep deprivation, salt intake, and daily wear and tear. Dark circles or discoloration can also be related to iron pigment from red blood cells. When blood passes through the veins close to the surface of the skin it can cause a bluish tint to appear. The more transparent or thin your skin is, the more pronounced these imperfections may be, and the more fine lines and wrinkles will show up. Tear troughs or hollows tend to form under the eye due to fatty tissue loss. Genetics plays a role too; if your parents' eyelids are hanging or sagging, chances are your eyelids may age the same way.
