What Can Be Done About Crow’s Feet

Dec 12, 2018 | Skin Care

Crow’s feet, sometimes known as “laugh lines,” are wrinkles around the corner of the eyes. Although attributed to laughing or frowning, crow’s feet are mainly caused by a lack of elasticity in the skin. Learn some helpful tips to preserve your skin against crow’s feet.

  1. Avoid the Sun

The sun is your worst enemy when it comes to wrinkles. One of the easiest ways to prevent crow’s feet is to stay away from crows-feetdirect sunlight. Harmful UV rays can be damaging to the skin with too much exposure. When you are out in the sunlight, wear sunglasses and sunscreen to protect your skin. Try SkinMedica’s Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen with SPF 50 to shield and rejuvenate the skin. It defends against UV rays while also reducing the appearance of crow’s feet. For extra coverage, try SkinMedica’s tinted sunscreen.

  1. Eat Clean

Although cliché, it’s true—you are what you eat. A diet packed with healthy, whole foods improves your overall health, including your skin. Foods rich in antioxidants, such as berries and dark leafy greens, help protect your skin from free radicals. Foods packed with healthy fats, like omega-3 rich fish, avocados, and extra virgin olive oil help keep the skin plump and bright. Plus, they fortify the skin against UV rays.

Avoid inflammatory foods, including milk and sugar. These foods encourage the breakdown of collagen, which can cause crow’s feet.

  1. Use Repair Creams

Creams and serums can be a handy tool when tackling crow’s feet. Ingredients like vitamin C, retinoid, peptides, and growth hormones help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Try SkinMedica’s TNS eye repair cream for ultimate hydration around the eyes. It brightens and tightens the skin around your eyes, shrinking the presence of crow’s feet.

  1. Get Botox

Botox is an effective way to reverse crow’s feet. Squinting, laughing, and smiling all cause wrinkles around the eyes. Botox freezes the muscles around the eyes.  This procedure needs to be done by a qualified physician, such as the doctors of North Scottsdale Laser & Skincare Clinic.
