How To Tighten Eyelid Skin Without Surgery

No matter your age, it’s not uncommon to look at your eyelids – upper, lower, or both – and be concerned that they’re drooping or look saggy. Sagging eyelid skin is a common cosmetic concern, which is why Epicuren Discovery has developed specific formulas to help people with drooping eyelids from home by using a dedicated eye care routine.

What Causes Droopy Eyelids?

Simply put, the aging process causes skin to sag on the eyelids and around the eyes. In fact, this is the area that most people experience the visible signs of aging first, as the skin around the brow and eyes is thinner and more delicate, and more prone to being pulled down by descending skin and tissue below them.

There are several ways to define a drooping eyelid appearance. First, you should look at the height of the upper eyelids – whether they open all the way to the top of the eye or not. Next, the height of the brow – a drooping brow creates a darkened appearance to the eyes. Finally, bags, sagging skin, or dark spots beneath the eyes are also signs of aging that can appear over time.

Treating many of these causes from home requires targeted formulas for your specific concerns. People with an expressive face may have more skin damage due to muscle movements over the course of their life. Others have sun damage that has created pigmented regions, spots, or has damaged the epidermis of the skin that leads it to stretch and sag earlier than it would have otherwise.

How to Fix Droopy Eyelids From Home

Unfortunately, the most effective ways for most people with moderate to severe drooping eyelids is to fix them with surgery or injections, depending on the major symptoms causing their appearance. Some people benefit from removal of excess skin whereas others benefit from injecting dermal fillers into the tear trough to fill in areas of volume loss.

However, if you have only just started noticing drooping around your eyes, there are at-home products to try to help stave off the aging process.

Short Term Eyelid Drooping Prevention

To see the quickest results in a change to your skincare routine, there’s no better place to start than with Epicuren’s Instantlift Tightening Serum, a product whose name speaks for itself. Introduce it after your cleanser or toner application in the areas you want to see the appearance of firmer-looking skin instantly. Its rich moisturizing compounds and antioxidants ensure your skin looks more youthful every time you use it.

Another all-around potent product you can try to tighten the look of drooping eyelids is our Gel Plus Enzyme Protein Gel, formulated with our exclusive Metadermabolic® Protein Enzyme Complex. Use this sealing formula at the end of your routine, before moisturizing and applying sunscreen, to reduce the appearance of fine lines that readily appear around the eyes and eyelids due to the thinness of the skin.

Long Term Prevention of Droopy Eyelids

At the end of the day, your skin will continue to age, but there are long-term benefits you can give them to outlast the natural aging process. Provide it with rich ingredients resources it needs with products like our Pro Collagen + Serum Amplifier, which works great in tandem with Instantlift Tightening Serum on a daily basis. This helps people with concerns about the early stages of the aging process, while enhancing the uptake of the hydrating and tightening compounds of the other products you’re using.

Finally, for people interested in the potent power of peptides, our Ultima-Peptide Maximum Peptide Complex packs a six-peptide blend into this daily serum. See for yourself how your skin helps you defy your age and experience a lasting reduction in the appearance of sagging eyelid skin and under-eye bags.
