These tiny innocent-looking lines on the side of the eyes like to make an appearance every now and again, and are more prevalent when we squint or smile. For some women and men, they are more prominent and noticeable even when there are no expressions. Filling out crow's feet should be carried out by a medical professional trained within this area, as the skin in this eye area is 40 times thinner than anywhere else on the face. Hence why, elasticity is lost much sooner than anywhere else.
The term 'prevention is better than cure' is true when it comes to slowing the onset of crow's feet. Wearing good eye protection with a high SPF (sun protection factor) can block out the harmful UV rays that hit the corners of the eye. Once the rays are absorbed by the delicate skin over time, the skins collagen layers fail to support the skin matrix, ending up looking like a collapsing tower. Understanding the inner skin anatomy and how to protect it can help women and men understand how to prevent such wrinkles.
