If you’re like me then you are already starting to worry about those little wrinkles around the corner of your eyes, also known as crow’s feet. They are often inevitable, but they can be treated! If you’re bothered by the sight of crow’s feet, take a look at these tips that can help you prevent and treat them!
Make the most of your sleep
It’s not actually sleeping that can lead those little crinkles but the way we sleep. Sleeping on your back can help eliminate lines from the creases on your pillow but if you just can’t sleep on your back, we recommend using a U-shaped travel pillow or using a satin pillowcase.
Scale back the squinting
Before we get into how to treat crow’s feet, let’s talk about one of the top ways we get those pesky wrinkles in the first place! Research shows that smiling, squinting and sleeping are the top three ways we get crow’s feet. We don’t want to cut back on smiling so we have to nip the squinting in the bud! Wear sunglasses, and if you need corrective lenses, get some prescription contacts or glasses ASAP!
Another way to prevent crow’s feet is to keep up the moisture levels in your body. Do this by drinking plenty of water and using hydrating creams on your face and eye area. Our skin sometimes gets dried out from lack of water or hydration, and as a result we get fine lines and wrinkles. Drink water and use creams that contain retinoids, copper peptides and alpha hydroxy acids.
If you already have crow’s feet and are looking for a simple treatment to treat those bad boys, try a chemical peel. You can get this peel done at a medical spa or doctor’s office, and it removes layers of dead skin so you’re left with fresh, radiant skin. You can also try a glycolic peel, which is also effective. However, they take some recovery time so it’s something to take into consideration.
Did you know that you can find grapes on the ingredient list of many anti-ageing skin care products? Grapes contain antioxidants, vitamins, phytonutrients and phytochemicals. All of these elements help protect and nourish our skin so it looks its best. Try mashing a handful of green grapes and applying the juice with a cotton ball on the eyes, mouth and forehead area. Rinse it off after 5 minutes and repeat it 2-3 times weekly to help reduce fine lines!
Another natural and easy at-home method to treat crow’s feet is to use an egg white mask. Egg whites can tighten the skin and help reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. All you need is the egg white from one egg! Apply the egg white to a clean face and leave it on for about 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. You’ll be left with tighter pores and firmer skin!
