Are you one of those people who have a problem with having wrinkles around the eyes,
which become more noticeable whenever you smile or squint? Don’t worry because you’re
not the only person suffering with this problem.
Wrinkles around the eyes or more popularly known as crow ’s feet is something that
seems to come inevitably with age. You’ll usually find crow’s feet in people over
the age of forty. Although genetics and the environment play a major part in its
development, there are actually things that you can do to get rid of them.
If you already have a couple of fine lines or even wrinkles in the eye area, there
are three things you should do:
• First, you should know why they developed around your eyes in the first place.
• Second, you should do all you can to prevent any additional wrinkles from developing.
• Third, you should deal with the wrinkles that you already have.
Skin around your eyes does not have as much oil glands, so it is often dehydrated.
The dryness in this area is one of the reasons why wrinkles develop. This is exacerbated
by smiling, laughing and squinting. Another cause for wrinkles is the loss of elastin
and collagen, which are protein fibers that give your skin elasticity and resilience.
The first thing you need to do in order to prevent wrinkles from forming is to use
a good eye cream with a high SPF. Remember that the skin around your eyes is very
delicate, so you need to dab the cream gently and carefully to minimize pulling and
If you notice yourself squinting frequently, analyze the main reason for this. Do
you need new glasses? Then go to your ophthalmologist to get your eye checked and
make sure you get one. Do you squint because of the glare of the sunlight? Then start
wearing sunglasses to block out the glare.
Cure And Treatment
How you treat the problem of eye wrinkles pretty much depend on how much money and
time you are willing to spend on treating the problem. If you want a long-term, inexpensive
treatment plan, then buy yourself a high quality wrinkle cream that contains Retin-A
in order to reduce and treat fine lines.
If you have enough money and you’re interested in a more extreme treatment plan,
then you can choose to go for a series of laser treatments in order to stimulate
the production of collagen in your skin. This will give your skin a much healthier,
smoother look. It can significantly minimize or even erase those problematic wrinkles
around your eyes.
You can also try Botox injections, which have been proven to be effective in dealing
with this problem. Botox is basically a toxin which is injected to restrain the movement
of certain muscles. However, the results will only last for about four to five months.
After this time, you would need to go back to your doctor to have another round
of Botox injections.
