Laughter is the best medicine and can brighten and beautify any face. However, laughter is also one of the main culprits behind crow’s feet. You know, those fine little lines around your eyes? While these lines are evidence of much laughter, they are also one of the first signs of aging.
Due to the fact that the skin around your eyes is delicate and contains less moisture than other areas, crow’s feet can often seem more visible. However, there are a number of things that you can do to minimize these lines. Here are some ideas.
Dab eye cream directly onto your crow’s feet lines. There is an array of quality eye creams to choose from. If you’re unsure about what types of products or makeup to try, contact Athena Salon and Spa in Windsor and they can help you choose salon products and eye creams will best compliment your skin type.
Sunglasses will also help protect the delicate skin around your eyes from harmful UV rays. It’s important to check out the label on your sunglasses carefully though. They should block at least 99 percent of both UVA and UVB rays.
As you get older, try limiting the amount of eye makeup that you wear or avoid wearing bright eye makeup. Bright, loud eye makeup will actually only draw attention to the lines around your eyes. Also, as skin ages and becomes innately drier, makeup tends to cake inside lines and creases. For professional beauty salon-approved eye makeup application, make an appointment at Athena Salon and Spa for a makeup application lesson, in addition to quality salon products.
Try to avoid tugging on the skin around your eyes when you remove your eye makeup. Instead, try soaking a cotton ball in eye makeup remover, and gently swipe it off in one gentle motion.
Talk to a dermatologist that can analyze damage due to stress, weather and sun. While you’re at it, you may want to ask if they would prescribe a strong wrinkle fighter like an AHA (alpha hydroxide acid).
You may also want to avoid sleeping on your side or your stomach. Sleeping in these positions can pull on the delicate skin around your eyes and on the rest of your face as well.
These are just a few suggestions for minimizing crow’s feet. Make an appointment with Athena Salon and Spa for more suggestions on maintaining healthy facial skin and a youthful complexion.
