· May 19, 2015

In this article, we’ll explain different causes of wrinkles around our eyes and natural remedies to help reduce the appearance of crow’s feet.

Crow’s feet are those wrinkles that appear at the outer corners of our eyes. What causes them? How can we prevent or lessen them? Keep reading to find out… 

Below you’ll find answers to start treatments with natural remedies that will help you stay healthy inside and out; avoiding the appearance of crow’s feet on our faces.

Eye stress

One of the causes these wrinkles appear and worsen is due to tension in the ocular area. If we really pay attention, when we don’t see well and have to strain our eyes, we are squinting and therefore creasing the corners and contributing to the appearance of wrinkles. It’s very common to do this, especially if our eyes tire easily or if you suffer from vision problems such as short-sightedness. You should always take care of your eyes and wear corrective lenses as recommended by your optician. Eye relaxation is another recommendation. How do we relax our eyes?

  • Several times a day we can rinse our eyes with cold water,  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 and relax them and breathe deeply.

Weakened Liver

Another cause for the appearance of crow’s feet could be from a weakened liver. What can cause this?

  • Poor nutrition, high in saturated fats, refined sugars, preservatives, etc.
  • Bad habits such as tobacco or alcohol
  • Negative energy such as anger

How do we treat a weakened liver?

  • Opt for better food choices, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, dried fruits and seeds.
  • Drink an infused tea of dandelion
  • Participate in activities that are good for emotional health
  • Prior to laying down, place a hot water bottle atop your ribs to help calm the liver

Lack of Silicon

Around the age of 40, our body loses silicon, a mineral that is imperative in forming skin tissue, hair, nails, bones, etc. This is why it’s recommended to take an organic liquid silicon supplement.

We can also take horsetail supplements, a medicinal plant rich with this mineral.

Caring for the Area Around the Eye

Finally it’s also inevitable that we need to cosmetically treat the skin around the eyes with natural products that are safe for the environment, but we can also use some homemade remedies that would be much more economical. It’s a very delicate area of the face, and the treatments are recommended for daily use, morning and night. Rose hip oil and argon oil are both ideal for dry skin or those that are mature with wrinkles. Whichever oil you choose, add a few drops to geranium oil, which helps to regenerate skin.
