5 Ways to Remove Eye Wrinkles and Crows Feet Naturally
Crows feet or laugh lines appear for many reasons. Whether it’s genetic predisposition or as a result of many activities, lifestyle, diet or exposure to certain things, you can remove these naturally with these methods:
1. Say goodbye to sugar
Time to cut back on sugar intake particularly on refined sugars and HFCS (high fructose corn syrup). These bad forms of sugar destroy the natural collagen within the skin. This will lead to weakening of the skin structure, causing the appearance of eye wrinkles and crow’s feet.
2. Protect the skin from UV damage
Damage from UV exposure is one of the leading causes for the appearance of eye wrinkles and crow’s feet. Protect the skin by applying sunscreen. Limit exposure to the sun. In case it can’t be avoided, wear sun protective items such as sunglasses with UV protection, wide-brim hats, umbrellas, etc.
Skin needs moisture to be healthy. Drinking lots of water will help make the skin supple and healthy. Wrinkles and fine lines are less likely to develop when the skin stays well hydrated.
4. Eat healthy
Diet plays an important role in health, including the health of the skin. Junk food, sweets and fatty, fried foods promote poor skin health. This can make wrinkles and fine lines appear sooner. Eat more vegetables and fruits to reduce wrinkles and crow’s feet. These are rich in skin nourishing nutrients such as antioxidants, minerals, and essential vitamins.
5. Apply natural ingredients on the skin
Aside from eating the right kinds of food, natural ingredients directly applied on the face can help. Some of the most beneficial ones are:
• Vitamin C
This is an essential vitamin that boosts the skin’s natural collagen production. Collagen is an important protein to maintain a youthful, supple, glowing and healthy skin structure. It also has UVB protective effects. Apply it topically or supplement with more vitamin C to protect the skin.
The healthy fats in avocado moisturize, protect and cleanse the skin. These fats also promote absorption of more vitamin A (to slow down the skin aging process), vitamin E (antioxidant for the skin) and vitamin C (for smooth, toned skin).
Ash some fresh avocado meat to the face. Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse well with warm water.
This is a cooling and hydrating natural food to soothe and nourish the skin, especially around the eyes. Simply slice cucumber rounds and apply over the eyes. You can also make a natural crow’s feet-busting mask by pureeing cucumber and yogurt. Apply on the face for 15 minutes, then rinse well.
• Yogurt and Raw Honey
Yogurt is filled with enzymes that can help exfoliate the skin and promote faster skin renewal. Raw, organic honey contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce stressors that cause skin aging. Mix some to create a mask and apply on the face. Leave on for 10 minutes to allow the natural compounds to work on the skin. Rinse well with warm water for youthful, wrinkle-free skin, especially around the eyes.
