Combine that with a general lack of care for the area and all the normal facial movements we make (such as blinking, smiling, squinting and stressing) its easy to understand what creates the fine lines and crow's feet around the eye area.
Diets high in salt and fatty foods, allergies and a generally poor lifestyle can also exacerbate under-eye puffiness and dark circles.
Because the skin around your eyes is 10 times thinner than on the rest of your face, there is a much smaller amounts of water, natural oils, collagen and elastin in the area. This is why the eye area is the first place to show signs of ageing and fatigue.
