Forty-seven-year-old Michelle Silva looks incredible for her age. A former model, she now shares her beauty secrets learned in the trade to keep her looking age-defying.
Michelle shares her tips and tricks on how to look younger on her TikTok account @therealmichellesilva account where she has 48,000 followers. Michelle discussed wrinkles and lines on the face, and how Britons can tackle these. So, how can people tackle eye wrinkles?
“Eye wrinkles are challenging to treat once they form, so practising preventative measures is essential,” Michelle said.
There are a number of ways to prevent wrinkles around the eye from forming, with sleeping on your back is one of the most important, Michelle said. She told Express.co.uk: “Sleeping on your back will preserve the area around your eyes.
“When you sleep on your stomach or as a side sleeper, pressing your face on the pillow for six to eight hours will cause premature wrinkles around your eyes.”

When sleeping face down on the pillow, or even with one side of your face on the pillow, friction on the skin is causing ageing effects. Pressure from the weight of the head also causes a folding effect on the skin, which can damage the skin and increase the signs of ageing.
Another important preventative measure, Michelle claims, is to protect your face from the sun. She explained: “Wearing sunscreen on your entire face, UV protective sunglasses, and a hat outdoors is necessary.”
UV rays from the sun create free radicals in the skin, which damages the skin from the inside and causes ageing and even skin cancer. Finally, Michelle explained, using good products on your skin can help with signs of age.
She said: “Invest in a good moisturizer for the eyes. Something with retinol, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and Niacinimide are ingredients I look for in products.”
