Crow’s feet are wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes which can easily age your appearance. These unwanted changes on the skin are most visible as they first appear around the eyes. From there comes the saying that you can tell someone’s age just by looking at their eyes (read wrinkles). Since they are signs of the natural ageing process, many women find it very unappealing and try to get rid of them.
As mentioned above, crow’s feet are changes in the skin that result in wrinkles and fine lines. They might be forming due to ageing or some other condition, and getting rid of them is almost a mission impossible. However, the skincare and beauty industry have developed ways and products that target these lines to help diminish their rough look and appearance. The most common and well-known is the process of using an eye cream. To better understand the process of treating crow’s feet, it is important to determine its meaning.
What Are Crow’s Feet?
If you have ever seen the footprints of a crow or any bird for that matter, you may guess where the name for these eye wrinkles come from. These fine lines resemble the footprint of a crow and often appear as the first signs of ageing skin. In some women, they can appear as early as the age of 20. As the skin ages, these lines become more visible due to the lack of natural oils in the skin. When there is less oil, the skin tends to be drier, not as elastic as it used to be, and it leads to forming noticeable wrinkles. Crow’s feet target the areas around the eyes because the skin there is a lot thinner, drier, and exposed to facial changes and expressions.
Dealing With Crow’s Feet Using Face Creams
Dealing with crow’s feet, as well as the other wrinkles that appear on the face is not an easy thing, nor there is a permanent solution to it. You can get in front of wrinkles around the eyes by using an eye cream. Religiously apply the cream twice daily and you stand a chance of taming crow’s feet. Make an eye cream part of your daily skincare and beauty routine and start protecting the delicate skin around your eyes, preserve the youthful look, and reduce the rough look of crow’s feet.
When choosing the right eye cream, it is important to follow the instructions on the box. There are different types of eye cream to cater to the delicate skin at various stages of the ageing process. For the eye cream to work, the product must be suitable for the age. The eye creams that fall into the category for the ages of 20 and 30 hold ingredients that stimulate collagen production and with that reduce the look of the crow’s feet, dark circles, and puffed look.
For the skin around the age of 40, the eye cream should be enriched with a high and powerful skin-renewing formula that can help rejuvenate the vitality around the eyes. Targeting this area results in a smoothed crow’s feet area and softer look. For the skin that is in the 50s, the eye cream product enriched with calcium improves the smoothness of the wrinkles as well as reduces the signs of ageing.
How To Create A Routine For Dealing With Crow’s Feet?
With the first signs of the crow’s feet come the responsibility and the change in the daily skincare and beauty routine. This involves limiting the exposure to the sun to a minimum and the obligatory use of an SPF protective cream. The SPF factor should be included in all skincare products and makeup, no matter if there is or is not direct sun exposure. For the best possible effect of the SPF cream and all other eye creams, the application plays a great part. Applying the cream should be done gently, with patting and not rubbing. You can also add some round movements that will stimulate the circulation and better absorption of the product.
Other important changes in the daily routine involve wearing sunglasses. The sunglasses help in protecting the area around the eyes and block the UV rays that can age the skin. Also, switching to a silk pillowcase will contribute to providing a soft base for the skin to rest.
All in all, diminishing the look of the crow’s feet is possible with sticking to the routine and regular use of eye products.
