Is there anything I can do to minimize, hide, or slow down the lines developing under my eyes?

I'm in my early 30s, but I've always had a couple fine lines under my eyes, even as a teenager. But it feels like they're quickly getting cemented, bigger, and more numerous. My eyes are inset, and something about the structure of my face creates lines completely under my eyes, and not the sides (no crows feet).
The lines are MUCH more prominent and wider spread when I smile/laugh, so I appreciate that there are good times built into the nooks of those lines... but they still bother me.
I have an early family history of skin cancer, so I've always been conscientious of sun exposure, usually get enough sleep, and drink plenty of water. I'm pale, but with dark hair/eyes/eyebrows. So far the rest of my face seems to be spared from these lines and wrinkles - my forehead, mouth, sides of eyes are of no concern. But the lines under my eyes…. eek!
Is there anything I can do to be proactive about how those lines develop? Can I do anything to further prevent them, or reduce their appearance?
