Crow's feet got you down? Try these simple tricks
July 8, 2013
Do you remember where you were when you first noticed your crow's feet? Perhaps you were glancing in the mirror after a shower or examining photos of yourself from a recent vacation. No one likes to see those little wrinkles around the corner of the eye, but fortunately, there are ways to prevent or reduce their appearance.
Less salt, more starch
The Huffington Post recently spoke with an anti-aging expert who had a few tips on how to make tired-looking, wrinkly eyes appear more vibrant and youthful. Salt can play a major factor in your peepers' appearance and too much of it causes the skin to inflame and the thin, sensitive skin around the eyes to easily become puffy. If you do happen to have a very salty meal, he suggests drinking eight to 12 glasses of water the following day to rejuvenate your skin.
Forget the old cucumber trick - starchy potatoes might be better. The doctor says that cuke slices are great to reduce puffiness and redness around the eyes, but for those of us who are more worried about dark circles in this region, pieces of potato might be better. Chill the potatoes and rest them on your eyes for five minutes or so, and you'll likely see a change for the better.
Revamping your beauty regimen
There may be a few cosmetic tricks you can use to help make your eyes appear brighter. According to the news source, unkempt eyebrows can have a big impact on how your eyes appear. Our eyebrows change as we grow older, often becoming thinner, messier or grayer. Many spas and salons offer "eyebrow makeovers," and you might be surprised at the results.
There's another sector of the beauty world that can help with eye woes - cosmetic medicine. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, there are a number of aesthetic procedures that can make improvements around the eyes. Botox or dermal fillers can help treat fine lines around the eyes, while an eye lift or face lift can offer more permanent results.
Skin procedures like chemical peels or microdermabrasion can also enhance the quality of your facial skin. To determine what solution may be best for you, book a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
