There’s so much to love about ourselves as we grow older and age. We become better at regulating our emotions, dealing with relationships, caring for ourselves, and becoming financially independent.

However, with time and evolution, our skin also ages. Crow’s feet and wrinkles are a part of the aging process. While there’s nothing wrong with it, you can always go for skin rejuvenation and cosmetic procedures at Skin Loft for a little skin smoothing.

What Causes Crow’s Feet and Wrinkles?

Do you see the perpendicular lines pulling around your eyes? Yes, this is called crow’s feet. This happens when your facial muscles are constantly inserted into your skin with frequent movements like laughing, smiling, and squinting.

Sun’s UV rays can also cause fine lines and wrinkles, including crow’s feet. The skin around your eyes is where wrinkles will first start appearing. It’s thin and more prone to the sun or environmental damage like pollution. When your skin is dry, creases can form. Add in your age, and you have the perfect recipe for wrinkles and crow’s feet.

Preventing Crow’s Feet and Wrinkles

If you want to age gracefully, you need a good skincare routine and preventative measures, including skin rejuvenation treatments that feel right.

  • Wear Sunglasses and SPF

You need to protect your skin from the sun. Wearing sunglasses will protect the skin around your eyes, and you won’t have to squint. With SPF, you’re adding a layer of protection to your entire face (and body). Sunscreen doesn’t just prevent sun damage from UV rays but also fights premature aging.

  • Eat Foods Rich in Antioxidants

Eating nuts and fruits rich in antioxidants will help you prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet.

  • Consider Preventive Botox

Botox is often the last resort regarding wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet. However, you can get it as a preventative skincare measure. It will help you eliminate the deepening lines around your eyes and forehead. It’s also safe, and you can easily find a certified skin professional offering this treatment.

  • Exfoliate

Exfoliating is a preventative measure for minimizing the formation of crow’s feet and wrinkles. It removes dead skin cells and forces fresh and new skin cells on the surface. It also smoothens out the fine lines and adds volume to your epidermis.

  • Try RF Microneedling

This powerful treatment uses tiny needles and RF energy.  The tiny needles are used to cause small punctures in the skin which triggers the body’s natural healing reaction while RF (radiofrequency) waves are used to produce a warming effect in the deep tissue.  The treatment promotes collagen production, tightens and lifts sagging skin thereby targeting wrinkles and signs of aging.

When it comes to crow’s feet and wrinkles, prevention is key. The sooner you start, the better your skin will thank you for it.
