How Can I Prevent Crows Feet?
Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but that doesn't mean you have to live with them. Anti-aging treatments are available to help those who have fine lines and wrinkles get their smooth, youthful skin back.
One of the most stubborn types of fine lines is crows feet. Crows feet, also known as laugh lines, are tiny wrinkles along the eyes. Fortunately, there are ways you can help prevent crows feet from making an appearance on your face as you age.
Use daily sunscreen
Sun protection is one of those beauty tips that make their way onto every list. This is because there's no better wrinkle treatment than protecting yourself from UV rays.
Up to 90% of visible changes in the skin such as liver spots and wrinkles are caused by the sun, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.
By applying sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day (yes, even during the winter), you're helping to keep your skin face from premature aging. You also reduce your risk of skin cancer.
Fine lines such as crows feet are often the result of regular squinting. To prevent squinting in the sunlight, double your protection by shading your eyes with your favorite aviators.
Sunglasses with UV-protection can help prevent eye damage, and premature wrinkles. What's more, sunglasses go with any outfit and can be worn throughout the year so you never have to suffer your skin for the sake of aesthetics.
Give yourself a massage
Crows feet are expression lines, which mean they form because of repeated muscle movements. The area around your eyes contains some of the most active muscles in your body.
To help prevent crows feet, relax your facial muscles every day by massaging around your eyes. By doing this for as little as five minutes every day, you can help relax your muscles and reduce your chance of developing crows feet. Consider pairing this routine with skin resurfacing products for even better results.
Injectables such as Botox are a nonsurgical and noninvasive wrinkle treatment with a variety of benefits. Botox has been known to help with depression, headaches, muscle aches, and, of course, aging.
