Getting Rid Of Deep Eye Wrinkles

You may have deep eye wrinkles or light ones. You might have crow’s feet or fine lines. You might be under 30 or getting a little older. Regardless of your age or the condition of your skin, you need the same kind of help. It’s called nourishment.

I’m not talking about taking more dietary supplements. Although, if you are not already taking one, a good fish oil supplement can help improve your appearance. In clinical studies researchers saw a 10% improvement in firmness and elasticity after three months of supplementation.

Of course, for deep eye wrinkles, you should aim to increase firmness by about 52%. You can do that by applying the right nutrients directly to your face. Here’s what you need to look for.

The Importance of Protein

Proteins are the building blocks that the body needs to create new skin cells and fibers. Of particular importance are collagen, keratin and hyaluronic acid. Tiny fragments of the protein keratin, bound to the minerals copper and zinc, have been shown to increase the production of new skin cells by as much as 160% in as little as three days.

If you want to get rid of deep eye wrinkles, you need to support and improve your body’s ability to produce new cells and fibers. That production normally decreases with age, as does the level of protein found in the skin.

Dermatology researchers have found that free radicals break down collagen, damage skin cells and eventually DNA strands. Antioxidants prevent and repair free radical damage, thus protecting collagen. In a recent report, it was said that free radical damage was responsible for all of the signs of aging, but, to be honest, there are other factors at play as well.

An enzyme has been shown to break down hyaluronic acid, which, along with keratin, is responsible for the skin’s firmness and elasticity. An extract from Wakame kelp has been shown to inhibit the activity of that enzyme; this allows levels of hyaluronic acid within the skin to return to those of a much younger person.

So, the formula that you need is keratin + antioxidants + wakame kelp for deep eye wrinkles. That formula equals smoother, younger looking skin. It is clinically proven. But, not just any keratin will do.

The most common form of keratin, found in the average lotions on the market, is derived by melting animal horns and hooves at high temperatures. This process destroys the “functionality” of the keratin proteins, rendering them useless.

A compound called “Functional” keratin has been created. The protein is gently extracted from sheep’s wool and processed in such a way as to remain readily available for use by the skin’s cells.

When it comes to antioxidants, beware. There are companies on the market that call artificial preservatives, antioxidants. That’s technically true, but it won’t help you reduce  deep eye wrinkles. Nourishment is the help that you need.
