Anti-ageing skin care products are everywhere and you surely have some sitting on your vanity. You use them religiously and likely feel that you are doing everything possible to prevent the signs of ageing.
However, if you are not taking care of the skin around your eyes, you may notice some lines creeping up.
Here are some tips that you can put into use starting today to prevent crow’s feet.
Use a Good Sunscreen
You always hear that you need to wear sunscreen 365 days per year and this is because it is critical for optimal skin health.
Crow’s feet and other signs of ageing can occur as a result of skin damage. Use a broad spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 for adequate protection.
Always Wear UV Protection Sunglasses
Your eyes need protection from the sun just like your skin. When you wear UV protection sunglasses, you are protecting your eyes and the skin surrounding them from sun damage and wrinkles.
Whenever you are in the sun, make sure to always wear these sunglasses for protection. In addition to preventing sun damage, sunglasses also prevent squinting to ward off crow’s feet.
Use an Eye Cream that Plumps and Moisturises
You can temporarily plump your skin and minimise lines and wrinkles when you use a moisturiser than also plumps your skin. The wrinkle reduction is thanks to ingredients that hydrate the skin.
Think about what happens to a balloon when you blow air into it and this is how these work to smooth out wrinkles. Good ingredients include cucumber extract, hyaluronic acid and honey.
Use Some Peptides
Peptides promote younger skin because they work like a natural form of Botox. This relaxes wrinkles on your face, creates natural collagen to plump your skin and helps stimulate the growth of new cells.
Peptides work to conceal the wrinkles and lines that you currently have while also working to prevent crow’s feet from either starting or getting worse.
Perform an Eye Massage
Massage works to bring blood and nutrients to the area that you are massaging. This helps to relax the muscles in the eye area so that crow’s feet are far less pronounced.
Just a five minute massage each night is adequate to help improve the health of the skin around your eyes.
Book a Facial Appointment
A good facial helps to improve the health of your skin so that you naturally look younger. Getting a facial every two to four weeks improves skin health and encourages better circulation.
You can also get a micro-current facial to tone the muscles in your face. This is more expensive, but it adds even more anti-ageing power to your facial.
