How To Get Rid Of Crow’S Feet Naturally
How To Get Rid Of Crow’S Feet Naturally? Crow’s feet are a natural part of aging, but they can be unsightly if you have them on the sides of your nose or around your eyes. The good news is that there are many ways to get rid of crow’s feet naturally. Here are 6 simple remedies that anyone can do at home.
1. Eat foods rich in Vitamins A & E like eggs, nuts (cashews), leafy greens, fruits, vegetables, fish and green tea. These vitamins help improve elasticity and strength of skin tissues, promote collagen production and strengthen capillaries so nutrients get delivered more efficiently to all parts of the body. Vitamin A also helps reduce inflammation while vitamin E fights free radicals. And both vitamins A and E work together to keep the skin hydrated and healthy looking.
2. Use an exfoliating scrub made with ground apricot seeds, lemon juice and sea salt or sugar grains. This mixture will not only remove dead cells from the surface of the skin, it will also stimulate circulation and make the skin look healthier by encouraging new cell growth.
3. Take a daily multivitamin supplement containing vitamins A, B complex, C, D, and E. You should take these supplements every day even when you eat well-balanced meals because most people don’t get enough of these essential nutrients through their diet. Taking a daily multivitamin will ensure that your body gets the right amount of each nutrient.
4. Drink lots of water. Water keeps our bodies hydrated and makes our skin look younger by reducing wrinkles. Drinking 8 glasses of water per day is recommended.
5. Stop smoking. Smoking causes wrinkling of facial skin due to the effects of nicotine. It also contributes to the formation of wrinkles around the mouth area.
6. If you’re tired of using expensive creams to try to prevent wrinkles, consider trying something simpler such as DIY face masks made with egg white. Egg whites contain magnesium which is great for your body as magnesium detoxifies and cleanses the skin. They also contain protein which promotes collagen production and strengthens capillaries so nutrients get delivered more effectively to all parts of the body.
Magnesium also helps regulate blood pressure and heart function. Protein improves skin texture and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Aloe vera has been used medicinally for centuries. The gel inside the aloe plant contains the healing ingredient — polysaccharides — which stimulates fibroblast cells responsible for producing collagen. In addition, the antioxidants beta carotene and zeaxanthin found in the rinds of the inner leaves are known to protect against sun damage.
Egg Whites Face Mask Recipe
- 1/2 cup raw egg whites
- 8 drops pure vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon finely shredded fresh ginger root
Mix ingredients thoroughly. Apply mask once or twice a week until desired results are achieved. Store leftovers in refrigerator.
You may use this recipe without modification, however I’ve discovered other recipes that are even better for removing crow’s feet. One of those delicious and easy recipes uses just one egg, 2 teaspoons of honey and 1 drop of vanilla!
7. Make a paste out of cucumbers, yogurt, and lemon juice. Mix two tablespoons of plain low fat yogurt, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and peeled grated cucumber. Leave overnight to allow flavors to penetrate into skin. Rinse off next morning. Repeat weekly until crow’s feet disappear.
Cucumber eye patches are another way to get rid of crow’s feet. Simply cut small pieces of cucumber and place on closed eyelids over closed eyes. Allow the cucumber to absorb moisture from underneath the patch and then gently pull away. Do this several times throughout the day to increase absorption.
8. Use a homemade moisturizer. Many people find that making a moisturizer at home is less expensive than buying commercial products. There are several different types of homemade moisturizers including oil based, alcohol based, and petroleum jelly. Oily based moisturizers soak up excess oils in the skin and replace them with moisture. Alcohol-based moisturizers create a protective layer of lipids on the outermost layer of skin called the stratum corneum. Petroleum jelly works by creating a barrier between the air outside and the skin on top.
9. Try applying a thin layer of Vaseline to your entire face before going to bed. Let it dry completely and then apply a second coat of Vaseline about 10 minutes later. After 15 minutes repeat second application. Continue doing this nightly until results are reached.
10. Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. Sunlight ages the skin on the back of the hands, neck, arms, legs, and chest. So wear sunscreen lotion with an SPF 30 or higher when outdoors during peak sunlight hours.
11. Using a cotton ball moistened with witch hazel applied directly to the affected areas, massage your crow’s feet vigorously until they become supple and pliable. Then rinse well with warm water. Witch hazel is a topical pain reliever and anti-inflammatory derived from a shrub native to eastern North America.
12. For extra protection use a daily sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher.
13. Keep your lips moist by eating juicy strawberries. Strawberries have long been recognized for promoting youthful appearance and vitality. According to researchers, strawberry extracts boost collagen production and improve the complexion.
