Doctor reveals 4 simple tips for younger-looking eyes

2 min read

He’s got a clear vision for younger-looking eyes.

Dr. Anthony Youn, a board-certified plastic surgeon based in Michigan, is sharing four simple tips to prevent and reverse aging of the eyelids — wear sunglasses, eat fewer ultra-processed foods, get your allergies under control and use retinol eye cream.

Signs of eyelid aging include puffiness, loose skin and under-eye bags.


Wearing sunglasses, Youn said, can help prevent wrinkles that form around the outer corners of the eyes.

Wear sunglasses

“Not only will it protect the sensitive eyelid skin from the UV rays of the sun, but it also will prevent you from squinting, which can create crow’s feet wrinkles,” Youn says in a TikTok last month that’s drawn 23,700 views.

Crow’s feet wrinkles form around the outer corners of the eyes.

When selecting sunglasses, the American Cancer Society advises looking for a label that says the pair “Meets ANSI UV Requirements” or “UV absorption up to 400 nm,” which means the glasses block at least 99% of UV rays.

Eat fewer ultra-processed foods

Ultra-processed foods can raise the risk of heart disease, cancer, Type 2 diabetes and obesity. Youn says they can also increase the amount of puffiness around the eyes because they are filled with salt and other inflammatory ingredients.

Get your allergies under control

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 25.7% of US adults have a seasonal allergy.

“Try getting your allergies under control and avoid aggressively rubbing your eyelids,” Youn recommends. “The eyelid skin is some of the thinnest skin of the whole body, and aggressively rubbing that skin can cause it to stretch out.”

Use retinol eye cream

“Retinol has been shown to increase the collagen of the skin and can help prevent the skin from getting thin, crepey and wrinkly,” Youn explains.

Self magazine recommends starting with a lower-concentration cream, between 0.1% and 0.5%, or products with encapsulated retinol, which tends to be gentler.
