Our skin changes with age. One of the most common signs of this process is the fine lines and wrinkles in our faces, especially around our eyes. Those fine lines are “crow’s feet”.
While they are completely healthy and normal -crow’s feet may indicate you smile a lot, which is amazing!- you might want a smoother look, and that’s fine too. To teach you how to treat them first, we need to know how they are formed.
What are crow’s feet?
Every year, our skin naturally loses a tiny percentage of elasticity. This is because we produce less collagen with age, the principal factor for skin cell renovation.
Furthermore, they appear around our eyes because of our daily gestures, but also because that area of our skin is delicate. Thin and with few oil glands, which can cause dryness and the appearance of wrinkles.
Moreover, this delicate portion of our skin is susceptible to sun damage, stress, and pollution. External factors that accelerate the aging process.
How to prevent them?
The best way to get rid of crow’s feet and other fine lines is to prevent them. We list three basic tips to start.
- Wear sunscreen and sunglasses: make sure to protect your eyes and the surrounding skin from the sun. Wearing a high SPF sunscreen and big glasses can help. Above all, remember that UV rays are proven to cause irreparable damage to our cells.
- Exfoliate: depending on your type, choose a gentle exfoliant for cleansing the dead cells on the top layer of your skin and forcing fresh skin to the surface. This also adds volume to the epidermis, helping to smooth lines.
- Use the right product: the first step is to protect the skin around our eyes, and the next one is to find a helper to strengthen the same area.
We recommend our mighty Oracle Eye Cream, made with 20% L-ascorbic acid, enzymes, and vitamins to boost your skin’s nutrient status. Oracle will help decrease dark circles and prevent crow’s feet lines.
