The skin under your eyes is the most delicate skin on your face – in fact; it has the same thickness as an eggshell. So it's no wonder there are many different skin concerns regarding that area including crows feet, eye wrinkles, sagging eyes, puffy eyes, crepey eyelids, and dark circles under eyes. Keep reading to learn how to get rid of eye wrinkles, dark circles under eyes and more.
Unfortunately, there are many causes of wrinkles under eyes including tanning, repetitive motions like squinting your eyes, certain lifestyle habits, and normal aging. Crows feet – lines that start at the outer corners of the eyes and become more pronounced when you smile – can be due to normal aging, but they are also commonly caused by UV damage.
If you're desperate for an under eye wrinkle treatment, there are steps you can take to reduce crows feet, fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes.
The first and most important under eye wrinkle treatment is to prevent them in the first place. Wear a broad spectrum sunscreen and sunglasses (with SPF lenses!) to protect your skin from sun damage and repetitively squinting your eyes in the sun.
Never use makeup wipes either – not only do they leave behind an irritating residue, but rubbing your eyes vigorously to remove makeup is a surefire way to get wrinkles quicker. Use something that instantly dissolves makeup without all the tugging and rubbing, like Makeup Dissolver Perfected.
But what if you already have under eye wrinkles and crows feet? Follow these 5 steps to get rid of eye wrinkles:

Want the latest under eye wrinkle treatment? Radiance Rescue is a face and eye mask that helps reduce fine lines and rescue skin that is worn down by age, stress and lifestyle.

Now you know how to get rid of eye wrinkles, but what about the other concerns?
Dark circles under eyes are one of the most common skin concerns people of all ages have. Dark circles can have a purple, blue, gray or brownish hue and they are most commonly caused by dehydration, a lack of sleep, genetics, or medications.
As with wrinkles, exfoliation is crucial. Using Quick Refiner for Eyes will speed up cell turnover which will "wake up" fatigued skin. In addition to easing fine lines, Multi-Task Eye Creme and Sleepwear for Eyes work specifically to brighten dark circles under eyes to make the entire area look brighter and smoother.
Radiance Rescue can also help make your overall complexion and under eye area brighter and provide an intensively enviable luminescence.
Celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Charlize Theron, Kate Winslet and more know how to get rid of dark circles under eyes. Their secret? Professional spa facials. There are certain professional strength products and specialized techniques that you just can't get at home.
Unlike other concerns, puffy eyes are often caused by irritation, allergies, diet, dehydration, and more. Your puffy eyes cure should consist of maintaining a diet low in salt and alcohol, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, and safeguarding against irritants with the right skin care.
One of the best products to reduce under eye puff is Radiance Rescue. Rare white truffle in this formula helps increase skin's elasticity and moisturization while helping reduce the look of lines and puffiness around the eyes. In fact, this powerful ingredient helps reduce eye bag appearance by a whopping 14%.* The formula also contains caffeine to wake up your skin's microcirculation to restore youthful resilience.
Calmitude Delicate Skin Eye Gel is another perfect product that reduces puffy eyes because it works to safeguard your skin from allergens, debris and other irritants to specifically tackle puffiness.
Receiving a professional facial can also help reduce puffy eyes thanks to specialized techniques, like the one below, that help fluid under eyes to drain.
Sagging eyes becomes increasingly common as we age. The skin around the eyes can lose firmness – resulting in lines, wrinkles, and a droopy, "tired" expression. Look for specialized eye formulas to firm up this delicate area.
A sagging eyes treatment includes Multi-Task Eye Creme to ease the lines brought on by sagging, and help skin look brighter and feel firmer. Calmitude Delicate Skin Eye Gel can also be used for sensitive skin- it moisturizes to make skin feel firmer as it targets other skin concerns.
As with most under eye concerns, wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen and protective sunglasses helps to prevent and minimize damage.

Crepey eyelids and crepey under eyes consist of a thin, crinkly texture. Crepey eyes are often caused by vigorous rubbing, dehydration and natural aging. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate with Multi-Task Eye Creme or Calmitude Delicate Skin Eye Gel to reduce crepiness. Both help tackle a crinkly texture. Sleepwear for Eyes will also aid in hydrating and smoothing your under eye texture.
