What is the Best Treatment For Crows Feet?
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant found in a number of effective crows feet treatments. Home remedies containing vitamin E may be equally effective. Flax seed oil is an excellent source of vitamin E that can be utilized as a dietary supplement or a topical crows feet treatment; meaning all you have to do is swallow it or rub it on your skin.
The oil also contains high levels of vitamins B and C -- and provides additional supports for healthy, youthful looking skin. You can poke a hole in an oil-based vitamin E capsule, and apply its contents directly to wrinkles around your eyes.
Raw Egg Whites
A facial mask consisting of raw egg whites is a highly popular crows feet treatment, especially if you favor natural remedies. Apply a whipped egg white to your facial skin, concentrating on wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet. Let set for at least 15 minutes until dry. Then, wash away with warm water and daub your face dry with a clean towel. The egg white will tighten your skin as well as help to flatten wrinkles and crows feet.
Antioxidant Rich Foods
Another simple crows feet treatment involves following a healthy diet. Natural foods rich in antioxidants play a significant role maintaining youthful, healthy skin. Processed foods and those containing high levels of sodium, saturated fats, additives and preservatives actually contribute to the development of crows feet. While eating better is not a "cure all" for crows feet, it is a recommended and HIGHLY effective approach.
Crows Feet Prevention
Preventing or inhibiting the development of crow’s feet is most likely the best form of best crows feet treatment. One of the best methods of prevention include avoiding sun exposure. Skin damage caused by the sun initiates the production of melatonin, creating age spots and discoloration.
Sun damage also contributes to overly dry skin, as well as the development of crow’s feet, laugh lines and facial wrinkles. Despite all warnings regarding sun exposure, many folks are addicted to sunbathing and the tanned skin it produces. Unfortunately, sun worship only ages skin in the long run. The best way to achieve a healthy looking tan is the light use of self tanning products rather than countless hours of sun bathing. Avoid too much direct exposure to the sun at all costs; wear sunglasses and floppy hats, AND apply sun blocker with UV protection and SPF 30 frequently.
Another crows feet treatment by way of prevention includes avoiding the use of nicotine; or smoking in layman's terms. Smoking cigarettes can ruin your youthful complexion by excessively drying your skin, causing wrinkles and discoloration. The effects of nicotine on your skin can impair its ability to heal itself, and contribute to the development of age spots, facial wrinkles and crows feet.
Dry Skin and Dehydration
Avoiding overly dry skin is yet another effective measure for the prevention of wrinkles and crows feet. Moisturize your skin on the inside by following the 8 x 8 rule of water consumption. Drink a minimum of eight, 8 oz glasses of water (and/or juice) to ensure proper hydration of your body and your skin.
Drinks containing caffeine cause diuretic effects and should be offset by drinking even more water; or by restricting caffeine. Moisturize the outside of your skin on a daily basis -- and pay special attention to the skin around your eyes. Look for lotions and creams developed specifically for moisturizing facial skin and are safe for use around the eyes. I personally use Lifecell Skin Cream; it's a bit pricey after the first 30 days, but it's hands down the best wrinkle cream on the market -- there is nothing else that even comes close!
Frequent exfoliation is both a preventative and a curative crows feet treatment. Removing dead cells accelerates your skin’s ability to replace them with new ones. Remove the old cells will help promote a refreshed appearance and tighten your skin. This is an effective method of minimizing the appearance of crows feet as well as all other signs of age.
