Barely 20 with Massive, Deep Smile Lines Around Eyes

I used to not have this problem at all even just a year ago. Some contributing factors I can just guess might be that we've lived in places where people smoke. But we don't smoke at all. And keep things aired out. Another factor could be that I don't drink as much water as I should and I don't eat as healthy as I used to or get as much sleep as I should. I've used eye creams but I'm afraid that they've made it worse. I just want my old, smooth, line-free eyes back!

No botox. I'm poor.

Appearance of eyes is suddenly worse.

I have found that hydration status can be a factor as well as hormone status. Have you changed oral contraceptives? Also weight loss or aggressive exercise regimens can also aggravate this appearance.
