Crow's Feet Begone! How to Get Rid of Wrinkles Around the Eyes

Crow's Feet Begone! How to Get Rid of Wrinkles Around the Eyes

After being cooped up inside or at your desk, birdwatching is a great way to relax and connect with nature for a moment. The one thing you don’t want to spot, however, is ‘crow’s feet’ on your face.


What Is "Crow's Feet"?

Crow's feet are thin lines and wrinkles that form around your eyes in The Squint Zone as a person ages. Also known as lateral canthal lines, they are a totally normal (but not always welcome) addition that develops at the outer corners of the eyes.


What Causes Crow's Feet?

Crow's feet are a natural part of the aging process and are primarily caused by a combination of everyday factors, including:

  • Age: As we get older, our skin becomes less elastic and loses its ability to retain moisture, making it more prone to developing wrinkles.
  • Sun Exposure Damage: UV rays from the sun can damage the collagen and elastin fibers in your skin, leading to premature aging and the formation of wrinkles.
  • Repetitive Facial Expressions: The constant movement of facial muscles, such as squinting and smiling, can contribute to the formation of lines over time. Not the most fun thing to hear to be honest.
  • Genetics: Unfortunately your genetic predisposition can influence how quickly and to what extent crow's feet show up. Not sure if 23andMe or Ancestry are tracking crow's feet eyes yet though!
  • Environmental Factors: Air quality and the environment matter. Toxic pollutants and lifestyle choices like smoking can also accelerate the aging process and contribute to lines, wrinkles, and crow's feet eyes.


So that's what causes them but what are some of your options to minimize and reduce the look of crow's feet?


How to Get Rid of Crow's Feet

Getting rid of crow's feet isn't always so straightforward. Reducing the appearance of them can be achieved through a variety of methods, and how you approach each depends on individual preferences, concerns, and even medical considerations. Some options are more intense, costly, and maintenance-heavy. These include everything from surgical medical procedures to simple topical creams.
So what is the best treatment for crow's feet?

 

Botox

While a common treatment is using botox for crow's feet, there are reasons why someone might consider alternatives or be cautious about using it.


Concerns About Botox:

  • Potential Side Effects: While Botox is generally safe when administered by a qualified medical professional, there can be side effects such as bruising, swelling, pain, and temporary muscle weakness.
  • Temporary Nature: Botox is not a permanent solution. Its effects typically last for several months before the treatment needs to be repeated. This ongoing maintenance can be a pain literally and figuratively.
  • Loss of Natural Expressions: Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. However, this relaxation can lead to a loss of natural facial expressions if not administered properly, causing an unnatural or frozen appearance.
  • Allergic Reactions: Although rare, some people might experience an allergic reaction to the ingredients in Botox.
  • Personal Preference: Some individuals may prefer more natural methods or treatments that involve minimal to no injections or medical procedures.

If you're concerned about going the full medical cosmetic route for treatments for crow's feet should be made in consultation with a qualified dermatologist or medical professional. They can assess your unique skin condition, medical history, and goals.

If botox sounds overwhelming (it is!), take a load off your mind with a simpler solution that works just as well. Our natural All In Eye Cream is the best eye cream for crow's feet you can get. It's one of our signature Eight Saints products that features all eight of our namesake organic ingredients to provide you with a powerful anti-aging remedy against lines, wrinkles, and of course, crow's feet.

Lightly dab our anti-aging All In Eye Cream under and around the eye area without pulling the skin until it has fully absorbed. Just make sure not to actually put it IN your eyes!

What's In the Best Eye Cream for Crow’s Feet?

At Eight Saints we are all about nature and being our natural selves, that's why we named the company after some of the best and most effective organic ingredients on planet Earth. Our All In Eye Cream is no exception and features some fabulous key ingredients.


All In Eye Cream Key Ingredients:

  • Squalane: Squalane is a natural compound found within our own skin! Historically used in medicine to treat wounds, this ingredient acts as a natural emollient and antioxidant while keeping your skin hydrated and protected.
  • MSM: MSM, or Methylsulfonylmethane (You can see why we abbreviate it!) is a sulfur compound that promotes collagen production to improve your skin's elasticity, reduce inflammation, brighten dull areas, and correct hyperpigmentation.
  • Cocoa Butter: Cocoa butter is a naturally derived ingredient that is richly moisturizing and deeply hydrating, helping to reduce your skin's scar and stretch marks. Its melting point near body temperature helps to retain moisture by providing a permeable barrier that protects sensitive skin from airborne pollutants and environmental factors.
  • Cucumber Hydrosol: Cucumber Hydrosol is derived from a steam distillation of the cucumber fruit. It has a crisp fresh scent and cooling effect on the skin. It helps calm irritated, red, or puffy skin and provides a refreshing splash of moisture, that leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Bursting with wrinkle-fighting natural ingredients, our All In Eye Cream is all you need to treat crow’s feet.
