If you haven’t heard of the term “crow’s feet” before, you’ve more than likely heard the phrase “laughter lines” or “character lines.” Whatever the term used, they all refer to the same signs of aging.
Crow’s feet is the name given to the wrinkles and lines that form around the outside corners of your eyes. It’s something that develops as you age, often becoming noticeable when an individual reaches their mid 30s. Although closely linked to the way the production of collagen and elastin in the skin slows as you age, other factors such as sun exposure, facial expressions and smoking have also been linked to their appearance.
So how can you reduce the appearance of crow’s feet?
Botox is definitely the most effective way of reducing the signs of aging and ridding the skin of signs such as crow’s feet and age spots. The treatment works to smooth the appearance of wrinkles on the face. Due to the fact that crow’s feet are more pronounced when using the muscles around the eyes, Botox relaxes these muscles so that they can’t contract anymore. The treatment takes a few minutes and can last up to 5 months at a time!
You can purchase specially formulated creams over the counter that target the appearance of crow’s feet. When used regularly, it’s possible that they will be able to reduce the signs of aging around the eyes. You should look for creams that contain certain ingredients, such as those that contain the active agents’ peptide or retinoid. However, it’s worth noting that whilst they can slightly alter the appearance of lines and wrinkles, creams won’t be able to change anything at a deeper level – they won’t restore elasticity to the skin.
3. Skin Peel
A skin peel works hard to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the skin. It softens the skin, whilst adding much needed hydration. This in return leaves the skin looking and feeling a lot more youthful. By carefully removing surface skin cells, it stimulates the renewal of cells. We say that it often takes 4-6 treatments to achieve the desired results but you will start seeing slight changes after the first one!
There are a range of home remedies that have previously been linked to the reduction of wrinkles around the eyes. Using ingredients from within the home, these methods have proven to be successful for some people. They include an Aloe Vera juice which when taken daily, helps to fight the appearance of lines on the face. Other methods include applying virgin coconut oil around the eyes every night and applying egg whites to the skin.
