Causes of crow’s feet

Eye stress

One thing that causes these wrinkles to appear and worsen is tension in the eye area. If you really pay attention, when you don’t see well and have to strain your eyes, you squint. That involves creasing the corners around your eyes and contributing to the wrinkles.

It’s very common to do this, especially if your eyes get tired easily or you have vision problems like short-sightedness. You should always take care of your eyes and wear corrective lenses as recommended by your optician. Eye relaxation is another helpful tool. But how exactly do you relax your eyes?

  • Several times a day, you can rinse your eyes with cold water. This is the best way to immediately increase circulation to the area.
  • Make it a daily routine to softly massage the area around the eyes. Start on the inside of the brow bone, making small circles.
  • Throughout the day, when spending hours in front of the computer or fixated on a certain object, rub your hands together to warm them, then place them over your eyelids for a few minutes. This will relax your eyes and help to improve vision.
  • Close your eyes firmly, relax them, and take some deep breath.

Lack of silicon

Around the age of 40, your body starts to lose silicon, a mineral that’s essential for forming skin tissue, hair, nails, bones, etc. This lack of silicon as you age is another one of the big causes of crow’s feet. It means your body just can’t rejuvenate the skin like it used to.

One common option is to take an organic liquid silicon supplement. You can also take horsetail supplements. It’s a medicinal plant rich in this mineral.

Caring for the area around the eye

There are a lot of natural products that are safe for the environment you can use to help prevent or reduce crow’s feet, but there are also some homemade remedies that are much easier on the wallet.

The area around the eyes is a delicate part of the face. These treatments are best if you use them morning and night, every single day. Rose hip oil and argon oil are both ideal for dry or aging, wrinkly skin. Whichever oil you choose, add a few drops of geranium oil, because it helps regenerate skin.
