 Ways to Get Rid of Crow's Feet

Experts suggest simple ways to stop eyes from shouting your age.

Crow's feet -the fine wrinkles around the eyes - can start showing up on a person as early as their late 20s.

"These wrinkles seem to be the telltale sign of age since they often expand and deepen over time," said Rebecca Tung, MD, director of the dermatology division at Loyola University Health System.

According to Tung, the primary cause is from thinning of the delicate eyelid skin. This is due to the aging process, sun exposure and repetitive movement from smiling and squinting.

As we age our body reduces the amount of collagen it produces, which causes skin to lose its elasticity and firmness.

To fend off these signs of aging, Tung suggested reacquainting yourself with your dermatologist and the four Rs - Relax, Refill, Resurface and Rest.

The first R means Relax pointing that the muscles around our eyes get a good workout. He suggests that a dermatologist could use injections to help those muscles to relax, lessening the visible lines.

With age our skill loses its volume, but it can be pumped up and recontoured with injectable fillers that is what the second R, Refill, aims.

Resurface is the third way to help smooth the lines, using laser treatments or chemical peels.

There is nothing like getting a full night's sleep to help beautify your body from the inside and out, says the last R, Rest.

"It's important to follow up with daily sunscreen use and apply an eye cream or serum as well to make your results last. Sunglasses are a great defense against wrinkles since they help us not to squint. Wear them every day, no matter the weather. Your eyes will thank you," added Tung.
