How to Get Rid of Crow’s Feet Naturally

If you listen to the cosmetic industry, you might believe wrinkles are a natural part of aging but you have a lot more control over the look and feel of your skin than you’ve been led to believe. You don’t need to accept wrinkles under your eyes or on your forehead, dark circles, lines under your eyes, or hyperpigmentation. You can regain smooth, clear skin. Let’s look at how…

Causes of Wrinkles, Crow’s Feet, and Fine Lines

Wrinkles happen when your skin dries out and loses body. When your skin gets dry, skin cell metabolism slows because skin cells (all cells, in fact) need moisture to work right. With a slower metabolism they don’t produce as much moisture, they don’t replace old, worn out cells as quickly, and they don’t replace the collagen and elastin that make your skin firm, strong and flexible. Then wrinkles form.

And that’s why the skin around eyes develops crow’s feet and fine lines first. It’s thinner than the rest of the skin on your face and body, and it moves a lot more. Every time you look around, smile, frown, squint and even sleep the skin around your eyes moves. Plus wind and sun exposure speeds how fast it dries out.

The skin on your forehead develops expression lines and wrinkles early for much the same reason. It’s a little thicker than the skin around your eyes, but not much, and it moves a lot and dries out faster.

But, there’s other reasons wrinkles form…

  • Poor sleep and a bad diet weaken your skin.
  • Too much sugar in your diet also accelerates wrinkle formation.
  • Smoking’s another big cause of increased skin aging and a loss of tone and color.
  • Drinking alcohol dehydrates the body, especially the skin.
  • Environmental pollution can force your body to use up antioxidants like vitamin E that it might otherwise use to keep your skin healthy and radiant.

6 Home Remedies For Wrinkles

Simple and natural home remedies for wrinkles include:

1. Dump the Sugar from Your Diet

Eliminate sugar from your diet, especially refined sugar. It destroys collagen and makes your skin weak.

2. Eat Natural, Organic Food

Fruits and vegetables deliver essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. And make sure you get enough proteins and amino acids in your diet. If you don’t eat meat or don’t like it, make sure you supplement. Nuts can be a great option since they are rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals. Your skin needs protein to build collagen and elastin.

3. Eat Chocolate

Well, not just chocolate, but dark chocolate (with very little sugar). Cocoa contains two plant chemicals, epicatechin and catechin, that protect against UVB sun damage.

4. Exfoliate Your Skin

Remove dead skin to promote and stimulate skin cell rejuvenation. Make sure to use gentle, organic skin care products instead of harsh chemicals.

5. Moisturize Regularly

Look for skin care products that use organic moisturizers and nutrients. Also, avoid skin care products that contain parabens, phthalates, and petroleum products. Cosmetics and lotions like these coat your skin with toxic chemicals that stress and suffocate your skin.

6. Apply Topical Vitamin C

Your skin needs vitamin C build collagen and maintain its structure. Studies show topical vitamin C reduces fine lines and age lines. [1] In one trial, patients who used topical vitamin C reported 84% higher satisfaction with their treatment than the control group. [2] Vitamin C also protects against the sun’s UVB rays that damage your skin.

5 Natural Skin Care Tips to Reduce Wrinkles

The best skin care moisturizes and nourishes. Here are 5 natural skin care remedies to treat crow’s feet and brighten your skin.

1. Avocado Mask

Avocado oil cleans, protects and moisturizes for soft skin. The oil also promotes absorption of nutrients like vitamin A that slows aging, vitamin C that supports toned, smooth skin, and vitamin E, an important antioxidant for your skin.

An avocado mask is simple to make: Remove the pit and mash up 1 avocado. You can use the inside of the avocado skin to exfoliate, or use your preferred exfoliating rinse. Then apply the mashed avocado on your face and leave for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

2. Cucumber Mask

For this mask, cucumber cools and soothes while yogurt moisturizes and nourishes. Puree together cucumber and yogurt. Gently rub onto your face and leave for 15 minutes.

3. Egg White Mask

Egg whites are loaded with protein for tissue repair, potassium that hydrates, and magnesium that stimulates skin cells for younger looking skin. You can find a number of different egg white masks, but here’s one that will brighten your skin. Beat together one egg white and a teaspoon of organic orange juice. Add a teaspoon of turmeric to soothe skin, calm inflammation, and lighten dark spots.

4. Raw Honey and Yogurt

Raw honey and yogurt offer a few benefits. One benefit of yogurt is that the lactic acid exfoliates. Honey hydrates and cleanses the skin of bacteria. Combine plain yogurt and honey in equal amounts, a tablespoon would do, and apply to your face for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

5. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a wonderful moisturizer and brightener and it’s easy to get huge benefits from it. Simply rub a little on your fingers and gently apply below and to the side of your eyes.

For an all natural skin care approach to crow’s feet, I personally recommend Parfait Visage®. This face cream has a unique property that penetrates 7 layers into the skin to nourish, moisturize, and enhance cell growth for smooth, ageless skin.

    As I age, the skin around my eye area become dry. Lucky, I have no dark eye circle or fine line yet. My skin is dry, but I don’t like the greasy feeling when using a Dermalmd serum.

    I really like Dermalmd. It is thick and creaming, a little goes a long way, and it absorbs quick. It moisture my skin, without the greasy feeling. Fragrance-Free make the product even better.

    Highly recommended

    Most traditional solutions to Crow’s-feet are not lasting. Since the majority of them involve tightening of the skin around the eyes, they only represent a temporary fix. The powerful orbital muscle will form new Crow’s-feet in short order. However some natural remedies might work and the best solutions for crowsfeet is to use Belléclat Eternally Beautiful Eye Vitalizer, a cheap yet effective solution to kill crow’s feet.

    I love this article, so much information and I can’t wait to try some new face masks! I’ve recently started to search an anti-wrinkle product for myself and came across SOLVADERM Anti-wrinkle Retinol Treatment with multi-peptides Stemuderm. It sound very tempting, and also they are paraben and fragrance-free so I am very excited about it!

    I am 30 years old and have never used a facial moisturizer in my life!! When I noticed I was starting to get crow’s feet around my eyes I decided to try this. I love it! It is minimizing the crow’s feet and it feels light and creamy, not greasy or sticky.
