What causes crows feet?

Are you a sun lover?

How many hours do you spend in the sun during the day?

It’s pretty obvious from the above questions that exposure to the sun must be a major contributing factor to the development of fine lines and wrinkles on the corners of your eyes.

Did you know that sunlight has a tendency to cause people to squint which promotes the formation of crows feet? It also causes facial wrinkles to form in other areas besides the corners of the eyes.

So, preventative tip number one to get rid of crows feet would be to limit the amount of exposure to sunlight. Now, if that’s not possible because of your occupation, then sunscreen to keep the epidermis of the skin hydrated needs to be incorporated into your routine. Additionally, make sure you wear some type of hat, preferably a wide brimmed hat to control the exposure to sunlight and reduce the effects of sun damaged skin.

Are you a smoker?

Not only is smoking a health risk factor but it’s also been known to contribute to the formation of crows feet due to squinting of the eye. The main reason behind this are the airborn irritants passed off from the burning of tobacco and the smoke byproduct.

What type of skin care routines do you have?

Individuals are more likely to develop a case of crows feet if they have either no skin care routine or a routine that is inconsistent.
