Skin Care - How to Rebuild Collagen in Skin Underneath the Eye

How do you rebuild collagen in skin underneath the eyes to fix those fine lines and wrinkles? Although they are quite harmless, I am sure you don't like the idea of staring at them in the mirror do you?

For one thing, the skin underneath the eyes is one of the most thinnest and sensitive in our entire human body. Consider this: the skin around our eyes is only about 0.4 millimeters thick. That's about as thick as a few sheets of paper put together. That's the reason why wrinkles and fine lines appear easily when create facial expressions like laughing, smiling, frowning and so on.

Collagen and Elastin

Our skin (or dermis) contains several layers. The thicker and deeper lay is where you can find collagen and elastin fibers. Collagen comprised about 70% to 75% of the skin's weight. It provides the skin with a high level of support to sustain the skin dermis. High collagen production would provide strength for the skin whereas elastin determines how elastic your skin will be. Without these two skin tissues, our skin will look dull and listless. In fact, you need both of them to have good looking skin - whether it is underneath the eyes, body or face.

As a matter of fact, both of these substances (i.e collagen and elastin) are manufactured by the human body naturally. Their existence protects the human connective skin tissue and helps to strengthen the skin support system.

When a person starts to age, both collagen and elastin production starts to slow down. Studies have shown that women tend to experience faster collagen loss than men. The bad thing about collagen loss is that you will experience aging skin problems such as unwanted fine lines and wrinkles.

In order to reverse this process, you need to find ways to rebuild collagen in the skin around your eyes. And here are some natural ingredients to look out for to help you combat your wrinkle eyes.

1. Forget about collagen mask, creams or lotion. The collagen molecules are too large to be able to penetrate into our skin. So it's useless to turn to these anti aging products.

2. Look for natural ingredient called Cynergy TK. This powerful ingredient has been proven to be able to revitalize collagen production. It contains keratin which is able to stimulate the body to re-create collagen once more.

3. The other ingredient that you should not miss is Eyeliss. It's quite costly, hence not many companies are incorporating it into eye gels or creams. But if you want to restore those aging wrinkle skin around your eyes, you need to find eye gels that contains this ingredient. It's a more worthwhile investment compared to other cheap ineffective eye creams.

4. The final ingredient you should take note is Homeo Age. This brown algae ingredient contains a huge amount of vitamins and minerals. Hence, it is very beneficial for your skin.
