Preventing Crows Feet Eye Wrinkles

SPF all year round.
Wear a sunscreen with an SPF of at least fifteen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays whenever you go outside. Be sure to apply it to your eyelids and under your eyes. Your best bet is to choose a foundation with SPF.

Avoid Squinting. Wear sunglasses when you'll be out in the sun to avoid squinting. Squinting can deepen eye wrinkles and Crow's feet. Also, when you're working at your computer, rest your eyes frequently to avoid eye fatigue and squinting. Also consider getting an anti-glare screen for your monitor.

Stop smoking. Smoker's develop Crow's feet quicker than those who don't smoke. The smoke from the cigarettes can irritate the eyes and also promote squinting. Not to mention it's bad for your teeth and skin, as well!

Moisturize. Use an undereye cream that has glycolic acid or vitamin C as an active ingredient. Putting on undereye cream will not only minimize the appearance of wrinkles you already have, it will also prevent from getting them in the future. You are never too young to start. I prefer Murad's Essential C line.

If Crow's feet become a serious problem, see your doctor for a Retin-A prescription. Botox injections are another alternative.
