Combating Crow’s Feet
Take action to prevent the appearance of crow’s feet!
The skin around the eyes are probably the first places where our skin begins to show the effects of aging. The soft and relatively thin skin around the eyes is constantly put under stress from squinting, sun exposure, laughing and smiling, and moisture-loss. The skin of the face and eyes are constantly exposed to sunlight and the elements.
Unfortunately, it’s not just environmental factors. Age itself takes its toll as our bodies naturally begin to produce less collagen and elastin as we get older. These two essential proteins, when produced in sufficient quantities, help reduce wrinkles and crows’ feet. But when these proteins begin to break down, skin can become dry, inflexible, and easily creased.
Common problems around the Eyes
When eyes are surrounded by dark, sagging skin, you look years older. Providing your eyes with the right care keeps them looking bright and stops those
Fixing Crow’s Feet And Fine Lines
Layering on foundation only emphasizes the lines that form around the eyes as we age. The way to treat wrinkling skin is to address the deeper issue—the contraction of muscles that lead to wrinkles and the lack of collagen and lipids that keep tissue plump and youthful.
Not only do dark circles make your eyes look darker, but they also make you look tired. A good night’s sleep helps prevent these, but in a pinch, a concealer that’s slightly lighter and warmer than your natural skin tone can brighten that skin. Correcting the discoloration, illuminating the eyes and making them appear larger negates the tired appearance.
Hollow Tear Ducts
The inner corner of the eye is naturally shadowed, and if you’ve lost collagen in your face, it can deepen this natural hollow. This makes your eyes look sunken and tired. A white eye pencil applied to the area around the tear ducts and the hollow of your nose—blended, of course—will soften the hollow effect and make your eyes appear open and bright.
Puffy skin not only makes your eyes appear narrower but also stresses the tiny blood vessels under and around the eyes. This causes darker circles nd further inflammation. All the eye-care products from Hale Cosmeceuticals contanin anti-inflammatories which will help reduce the appearance of puffy eyes, giving you a brighter, younger look.
Quick tips to reduce Crow’s Feet and Bags Under the Eyes!
How you experience the normal process of aging varies based upon your overall lifestyle. People with good habits look younger longer, while those who choose to engage in harmful behavior often appear to be older. The following suggestions may help combat crow’s feet and wrinkling:
Not Wearing Sunglasses
While sunglasses definitely look cool, they also protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. Sunglasses save you from squinting, which increases the fine lines (also known as crow’s feet) at the corner of the eyes. When shopping for eye protection, look for sunglasses that block 100% of the sun’s UV rays. And don’t be fooled by overcast days, the sun can still cause damage from behind the clouds.
Rubbing Your Eyes
Rubbing your eyes can mean a lot of things, none of them good. It might mean that you’re bothered by allergies, which cause itchiness and watering. It can also mean that you’re suffering from eye strain, which occurs after spending too much time staring at digital screens. Regardless of the underlying reason, rubbing your eyes pulls on your skin, which can damage its elasticity if you do it constantly. Take breaks from phone and computer screens when you can. If you have allergies, over-the-counter medication and nasal spray can control your symptoms.
Not Using Sunscreen
Sunscreen wards off harmful UVA and UVB rays, both of which are known to cause skin cancer. Sunscreen also reduces the sun’s aging effect when worn on your skin consistently. The sun depletes collagen from your skin, which impacts its elasticity and youthful appearance. Much like sunglasses, sunscreen should be worn all the time, even when it’s overcast.
Not Getting Enough Sleep
Even if you eat healthy and exercise, missing out on sleep every night can impact your health. It can also impact your appearance by causing dark, puffy undereye circles, a pallid complexion, and drooping skin. Most adults should aim for seven to nine hours of sleep each night to feel well and rested the next morning. The right amount of sleep will also give your skin a healthy glow.
