Our eyes are windows to the soul; they express more than we could with words. Our inner beauty, sincerity, and true emotions shine through our eyes whether we realize it or not.  

But there’s also one feature that your eyes give away:

Your age.

Having thin and delicate skin under the eyes makes it susceptible to aging. Talking, smiling, blinking — all of them use muscles around our eyes, causing the skin to crease with time. 

Because of this, we find it hard for our skin to spring back. 

If you’re one of these people, no need to fret! Stick with us at Introlift to find out what causes this and what are the best treatment options for you. 

What Causes Thin Skin Under Eyes?

In general, the under-eyes don’t have as many oil glands and collagen fibers as the rest of your body. That’s why they tend to appear dry without proper tender loving care. It’s also one of the reasons why this area is more prone to developing fine lines.

Yes, each person naturally has thin skin under the eyes — but skin volume varies for each person. Some people may have extra thinner skin, and that’s okay. There are also others who are blessed with plumper skin around the eyes. And you may start to wonder: is this some sort of sorcery?

Don’t worry! We’re here to clarify that there’s no sorcery involved at all!

Instead, there may be some lifestyle choices that contribute to the faster thinning of your under-eye skin. Let’s talk about the most common causes of thin skin under the eyes.


The prime contributing factor to your under-eye skin is genes. Our genetics play a role in determining many things about our physical appearance. From your hair color to skin tone, to even the thickness of your under-eye skin — they’re all in our DNA. 

It’s true that some people are born with thick under-eye skin. Research suggests that people of darker complexions are more likely to manifest this feature. 


When it comes to your skin’s mortal enemy, aging is most probably at the top of the list.

As you age, your body showcases it too. Your skin may get thinner and drier over the years — and the under-eye skin is not an exception. As you get older, your body experiences a decline in collagen production. On top of that, the regenerative rate of your skin cells may start to slow down.

Fine lines and wrinkles are inevitable, but there are ways to slow their onset. A professional treatment is all you need to help your skin hold back time. 

Sun Damage

If you think that you’ll only experience thin skin under eyes with age, you thought wrong.

If we have to nominate the next contender for your skin’s worst enemy, we can’t exclude the sun. You’re probably already aware, but the sun can seriously harm your skin. You may not see it now, but constant and excessive sun exposure will gradually deteriorate your skin.

As your skin absorbs the sun’s UV rays, they get damaged. In return, your skin is unable to heal as quickly as before. Furthermore, the harmful UV rays also target the collagen and elastin in your skin. These two components are the crucial proteins needed by your skin to stay youthful. 

When you’re young, skin damage from the sun might be the least of your concern. But it’s best to be proactive and start taking care of your skin now. And applying your sunscreen regularly is a good start. 

Trust us, your future self will be grateful.

Lack Of Sleep

Sleep is for the weak — as described by today’s society. We develop a hustle culture of working long hours and staying awake to meet our professional demands. But have we ever thought of what would do that do to our skin? 

Rest is essential to help your body heal itself. Specifically, your skin cells regenerate much-needed collagen and elastin in your slumber. When you don’t get enough sleep, your body would have less time to recuperate. 

You may already be familiar with the idea that sleep deprivation causes dark and tired-looking eyes. We’re here to let you know that it can also lead to thin skin under the eyes.

So don’t underestimate the power of beauty sleep! After all, sleep is a necessity; not a luxury.


Another contributing factor to aging is smoking due to the chemicals present in cigarettes, such as nicotine. 

Did you know that nicotine causes the narrowing of your blood vessels? The constriction eventually reduces the oxygen flow and nutrients needed by your skin cells. In addition, research suggests that smoking can degrade your skin’s collagen production. 

When this becomes a long-term habit, wrinkles will be more pronounced. Also, you’ll notice several signs of sagging as time goes on.
