Crow’s feet, laugh lines, eye creases—whatever you decide to call them—are all part of the aging process. Natural? Yes! Desirable? Not so much.
What Causes Crow’s Feet?
After the age of 30, many of us start to notice the formation of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. This has a lot to do with collagen loss, which gradually happens with age. And because the skin surrounding the eyes is much thinner than other areas of the body, signs of premature aging typically start there.
Let’s also not forget how often we make facial expressions throughout each day (i.e. smiling, frowning, and squinting). These types of movements require the exact muscles that control our eyes (Face Clinic London). And because it’s hard not to laugh at a joke or squint at your computer screen, crow’s feet are kind of inevitable.
Aside from age, genetics also play a vital role in premature aging around the eyes (LivingStrong.com). If your parents had crow’s feet in their 30s, or even earlier, it’s likely you will follow the same genetic pattern. Understanding these types of genetic skin concerns that run in your family can actually help you get an early start on adjusting your skincare routine to prevent future issues.
In addition to genetic influences, too much sun exposure is another culprit of crow’s feet. The sun’s ultraviolet radiation penetrates deep into the skin, breaking down collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in premature aging.
