Age brings on many changes on the body, but somehow these are most visible on the face. Crow’s feet are no exception. These clusters of tiny wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes normally appear after 30. The main reason for this is reduced production of collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for your skin’s elasticity.
Crow’s feet can also appear as a result of other contributing factors including excessive sun exposure, smoking, and pollution.
These wrinkles around the outer corners of your eyes should not cause you worry, especially as there are a few efficient natural methods to get rid of them. These homemade remedies use natural ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. This ingredients are extremely beneficial for restoring moisture and elasticity to your skin.
1# Egg Whites
Egg whites are full of protein, which stimulates collagen production, which in turn improves skin’s elasticity and reduces crow’s feet. Simply beat one egg white well. You should get a foamy consistency. Apply this around your eyes and along your cheekbones. You should leave the egg white to act for 10 minutes. Afterwards, clean it with a cotton ball dipped in cold water. Repeat the treatment twice a week.
2# Coconut Oil
This oil is abundant in medicinal properties. It is a natural moisturizer, rich in vitamin E, which not only moisturizes your skin, but also nourishes skin cells and tissues. Moreover, coconut oil packs high amounts of linoleic acid, which has the ability to reconnect broken skin tissues, thus preventing the appearnce of crow’s-feet, fine lines and sagging skin that normally occurs with age.
This coconut oil treatment is very simple. Each night before going to bed, rub a few drops of pure extra virgin coconut oil on the skin around your eyes. The longer it’s left on the skin, the better results it gives, which makes night time perfect for this.
3# Castor Oil
This natural emollient is extremely efficient in softening your skin and reducing the appearance of crow’s-feet, wrinkles and fine lines. Similarly to coconut oil, it’s best left to act overnight. Simply massage a few drops of castor oil gently into the skin around your eyes before going to bed. Wash it off in the morning. Repeat the treatment regularly.
Alternatively, you can mix one teaspoon of castor oil with the same amount of sesame oil and apply on your crow’s feet every night before going to bed.
