A plastic surgeon has revealed simple techniques that can help prevent and even reverse the ageing process. While ageing gracefully is a lovely concept, many of us prefer to minimise wrinkles.

Despite investing hundreds of pounds in skincare to prevent additional wrinkles or under-eye bags, sometimes these products are ineffective. To help, Doctor Youn aka @doctoryoun has taken to TikTok to reveal exactly what you need to do.

The doctor shares four "simple tips" to prevent and reverse eye ageing, noting that three of them are completely free. There's also one product that could aid in the process.

So what can you do? Here's what he wants you to know.

1. Sunglasses

"Not only will it protect the sensitive eye area from the UV rays of the sun, it will also prevent you from squinting which can create crows feet wrinkles," he says.

2. Food

Reduce the amount of ultra processed foods that you eat. Not only are they filled with salt, but they can be inflammatory, increasing the amount of puffiness around your eyes.

3. Allergies

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

4. Retinol eye cream

Talking about one product to use, as well as doing the methods above which require using no products or spending money whatsoever, the doctor says that "retinol has been shown to help increase the collagen of the skin and help prevent from getting thin and wrinkly."
