Eye Aging 101
Have you ever wondered what causes your eyes to look older? The reasons are actually pretty simple. If we know the exact process, we know what can be done to combat them.
The 3 reasons for aging eyes are:
Crow’s Feet and Winkles
Wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet all fall into the same category. They are caused by a loss of collagen and skin elasticity, and free radicals.
As we age skin loses it’s ability to bounce back. When we laugh, smile, squint or frown our skin creases. Eventually these creases become more permanent.
The second reason is free radicals. This accounts for 90% of premature aging. Things like too much sun, pollution, and smoking cause DNA damage to your skin over time.
Solutions: Boost your skin’s natural collagen production and tighten the skin. Protect yourself against free radical damage.
- Wear sunscreen when needed
- Eat plenty of antioxidant rich foods
- Don’t smoke
- Keep your skin moisturized
- Exfoliate 2-3 times a week
- Eat plenty of omega-3 fatty acids
- Eat more collagen rich foods
Under Eye Bags
You can get puffy eyes at any aging, but it becomes more pronounces as we get older. This is due to the skin weakening, allowing fluid to accumulate and making them look swollen.
There are several things that can make eye bags worse:
- Lack of sleep
Solutions: Strengthen skin fibers and reduce inflammation.
- Avoid excess salt
- Avoid foods that cause inflammation
- Get plenty of sleep
- Drink lots of water
- Apply cold compression
These are actually caused by blood showing through the skin. The thinner your skin, the more pronounced these circles get.
Dark circles are largely genetic, based on the thickness of your skin and how light your complexion is. They are more pronounced in the morning because laying horizontal allows blood to accumulate.
As we age the skin becomes thinner which can make these circles darken.
Solutions: Increase healthy blood flow and plump skin cells.
- Get plenty of sleep
- Apply cold compression
If you are dealing with one or all of these, start using the solutions above. A little change to your routine can go a long way!
To give your eyes a youthful boost, you can also use eye creams. We’ve formulated one with ingredients proven to help make you’re eyes look younger. Lets take a look at what those ingredients can do for you.

Organic Coconut Oil
We all know coconut oil is good for the skin. This is because the high amounts of healthy fats and vitamin E. These two nutrients smooth and moisturize the skin, promote healthy skin growth, and prevent wrinkles.
Organic Calendula Oil
Calendula oil is a great natural healer. It has been used to treat cuts, burns, infection, and even bruising.
Since bruising is skin discoloration caused by blood, we decided to use it to help dark under eyes. It does this by reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow.
Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil
This oil is high in healthy fats and antioxidants. It filters out UV radiation, protecting your skin from sun damage. Studies show it improves collagen fiber structure, while also reducing inflammation. One study found it even improves wound healing by up to 40%, helping to regenerate tissue.
All this comes from the 3 key skincare nutrients: Vitamin E, zinc, and vitamin C.
Organic Pumpkin Papaya Phospholipid
This is a mixture of sunflower, lecithin, pumpkin, and papaya. What you get is an amazing combination of vitamins, minerals, and phospholipids.
Phospholipids are a major component of all cell membranes, providing structure and protection. Apply this to your skin makes it stronger and more elastic.
Papaya is very helpful here because it not only contains moisturizing enzymes and reduces inflammation, it contains papain. Papain has shown to reduce scars, lighten blemishes and pigmentation, and dissolve dead skin cells. It is great for anyone who wants to brighten up dull skin.
Organic Sunflower Oil
Since sunflower oil is so high in fatty acids it actually restores lipids in the skin. Lipids are crucial to maintaining the skin barrier. This is why sunflower oil has shown to reduce water loss. Moisturized skin means flexible skin and less wrinkles.
It has also shown to reduce inflammation, helping to directly reduce puffy eyes.
Organic Castor Oil
Castor oil actually does a lot for aging skin. First, 90% of it is the rare ricinoleic fatty acid. This fatty acid has shown to increases circulation, reduce swelling, and heal the skin. Studies show it also increases water absorption and acts as a great barrier for the skin.
As an added bonus, it helps other ingredients penetrate the skin, making them more effective.

Commonly used as a cleanser, jojoba oil is another ingredient that does a lot for aging skin. It is high in anti-inflammatories and antioxidants. It is great at moisturizing the skin, smoothing wrinkles and preventing aging. It stimulates collagen synthesis and increases healing.
It is another ingredient that increases absorption of other ingredients. Win win!

Honey is actually considered a humectant, meaning it helps retain moisture. Couple that with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, you have a great natural moisturizer.
Studies show it helps with healing and soothing skin, and keeps skin young by delaying wrinkles.
Organic Argan Oil
Organic Arrowroot Powder
Most creams need something as thickening agent, and many companies go with cheap options. We decided to go with arrowroot powder because it is not only safe and organic, but offers some benefits of it’s own.
Arrowroot helps deliver other ingredients deeper into the skin. It also helps the skin absorb more moisture, making it feel softer.
