Crow’s feet are wrinkles etched in the corner of the eye. Unlike wrinkles or expression lines on other areas of the face, crow’s feet can appear to look deeper or more pronounced on the skin . Some of the leading causes of crow’s feet include UV exposure and the loss of collagen and elasticity that come with age.
While age and UV exposure are significant contributing factors for crow’s feet, crow’s feet can occur at any age, including your mid-20s. The reason crow’s feet can occur earlier in life more so than any other type of wrinkle is because of the thin layer of skin and lack of oil glands around the eye. As the elasticity of skin around this thin layer diminishes the skin is unable to bounce back to its original state.
Crow’s feet cannot be prevented entirely. However, there are measures you can take to reduce the severity and depth of crow’s feet within your skin, including:
- adopting a healthy diet
- staying hydrated
- reducing exposure to toxins
- wearing hats
- using SPF eye cream
- wearing UV protective sunglasses
These lifestyle changes coupled with a daily skin care regimen which includes a powerful eye cream can prevent crow’s feet from getting worse.
