The skin in the areas surrounding the eyes is ultra thin. This makes the skin susceptible to the development of crow’s feet, those tiny wrinkles and lines on the outermost corners of the eyes. Fortunately, you can actually reduce or soften their appearance and dramatically smooth out the eye area. Below are three cosmetic options you can try today!
Sunscreen – This is your first line of defense against crow’s feet. Aside from genetics, unprotected sun exposure is one of the leading causes of the fine lines on the outermost corners of the eye. Wear sunscreen when going out in the sun. Dark sunglasses can provide additional protection.
High-quality moisturizer – Find an eye cream that is specially formulated to moisturize the eye area.
Botox – This popular injectable works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a chemical responsible for muscle contractions. Wrinkles form through repeated muscle contractions. Botox injections to reduce crow’s feet take 15 to 30 minutes and don’t involve any downtime. Results last from four to six months.
Dysport – This injectable works just like Botox, but its effects show themselves quicker than Botox. With Dysport, results are seen as early as 2-5 days, while it’s 4-7 days for Botox.
