Table listing some methods that can be used to prevent crow’s feet and their effects
  • 1) Drink at least 8-10 8oz glasses of water throughout the day (not all at once). The more dehydrated you are, the more they show.
  • 2) Makeup application also plays a factor. If makeup settles in the creases, they are more pronounced. Go easy around the eyes.
  • 3) There are two ways to combat them: prevention and reduction. Use one for day and one for night. I recommend using both daily.
  • 4) Do you smoke or have you smoked? That will age you twice as quickly. Plus it’s a disgusting habit and I am judging you for it.
  • 5) Squinting – get some sunglasses that shield the tender skin around your eyes from rays and keep you from squinting.
  • 6) Pat don’t pull. Pat your makeup on, don’t pull your eyelids out on the corners to add liner.
  • 7) Avoid waterproof mascara. It’s hard to get off an you end up rubbing your eyes to get a clean look. Unless you cry every day all day, use regular mascara. Chances are, your issue is related to something else such as wet concealer.
  • 8) Pre-wash/soak off eye makeup by gently applying warm water to your finger tips. Gently run finger tips across lashes to dampen before removing. Soak a cotton square with remover and hold over closed eye. Repeat until gone then gently swipe remover underneath the eye. Rinse to remove excess product.
  • 9) Don’t rub your eyes it stretches the skin. Got an itch? Be gentle.
  • 10) Do your research on product before buying. Read the reviews and seek out before and after photos. Always remember, anything is better than nothing.
