If eyes are said to be the window to the soul, then there’s certainly a few of us who would prefer less lines than what the mirror reflects back each morning.
The skin around our eyes is approximately 40% thinner than the rest of our face. It stands to reason that fine lines and eye wrinkles fanning out from the corner of our eye (fondly referred to as ‘Crow’s feet’), would more readily appear in this delicate area. Especially considering our eyes are super expressive, blinking 20,000 times a day and contracting faster than any other muscle in the body.
How Do Crow’s Feet Appear?
Crow’s feet are caused by a combination of the natural loss of elasticity and collagen as we age, and skin movement from the myriad of facial expressions and blinks we do each day. Maybe Kim K had it right when she famously admitted that she doesn’t laugh often to help prevent ageing?
Or maybe not.
There are a number of solutions out there to help tackle crow’s feet. These range from botox and fillers, to acupuncture, micro-needling and laser, through to tried and tested skincare solutions.
Today’s top performing anti-ageing skincare products protect delicate skin against environmental stressors and help stimulate collagen production and cell turnover for brighter, smoother, more youthful looking eyes.
What Are The Best Crows Feet Treatments?
Let’s start with targeted eye care.
Skincare targeted specifically to the delicate skin around the eyes offers impressive benefits. Not only do many hydrating eye creams and serums, particularly those infused with vitamin A and vitamin C, help to strengthen the skin’s barrier, protect against moisture loss and defend against environmental damage; they typically address specific concerns such as dark circles and puffiness. They are carefully formulated to be thinner in texture and with a lower concentration of active ingredients to reduce the chances of irritation and overloading thinner skin.
Pestle & Mortar's Recover Eye Cream packs a serious punch when it comes to smoothing out eye wrinkles, and according to Tatler, Dr Levy's Eye Booster Concentrate is "quite possibly the best thing since botox". For an even more powerful lift and smooth, try using the teeth of FaceGym's Multi-Sculpt over crow’s feet, to help to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, and increase circulation for a plumping effect to reduce crow's feet.
Next, we can seriously up our facial workout game. Skincare is highly effective at lifting and smoothing the eye area. But for next level results, a workout is where it’s at.
Knuckle, whip and massage your skincare game to new levels with highly effective techniques that stimulate blood circulation and collagen, boost the lymphatic system and increase cell renewal. FaceGym’s Signature Sculpt Workout is a high-intensity workout to get your face fit. In this studio workout we combine our signature muscle manipulation techniques with EMS technology for powerful face sculpting and skin tightening. This workout will stimulate circulation, improve lymphatic drainage and lift, tone and contour. We use performance skincare that will help you reach your skin goals and leave you with glowing, radiant skin.
For the ultimate session in skin tightening and facial rejuvenation, try FaceGym’s Radio Frequency Workout. A high-impact workout that combines our Signature Sculpt workout with full-face radio frequency. This is the ultimate session for skin tightening and facial rejuvenation. Radio frequency (heat energy) stimulates collagen and elastin production to immediately plump, tighten and lift. The results are visible - reduced puffiness, defined contours and restored skin firmness.
When you combine targeted skincare with a high intensity facial workout, you can expect eye raising results, literally.
