How To Get Rid Of Crow’s Feet Naturally?
The first of the bazillion wrinkles to show up on our face is crow’s feet. Aligned with the sides of our eyes, from the various expression we make countless times in a day. Crying and laughing probably are the main expressions/emotions responsible to lead to a formulation of a crow’s feet.
They’re called crow’s feet because they branch out that way, just like a crow’s foot. These lines tend to give away our age and lifestyle. Most often people develop wrinkles and saggy skin due to unhealthy habits, such as smoking and the likes of it.
Wrinkles, crow’s feet, and saggy skin are a part of the natural aging process, we cannot cure it, first because it does not need to be cured. Second, It is not a disease that requires medical attention. What it is, is something that needs to be accepted. No one stays young forever and there hasn’t been a sign of a fountain of youth on Earth as yet.
What we can actually do is to slow the process down by adopting a few things in our lifestyle. This Tape Daily article will help you deal with crow’s feet naturally with some tried and tested practices.
All hail the miracle plant! A cure for almost everything, hence the stigma it wears. Aloe vera contains essential minerals and vitamins and anti-oxidants to battle the development of fine lines. The plant enzymes in the aloe vera help protect the skin and hydrate it. It repairs cell tissues and increases collagen production. All of this is needed for a healthy skin. All you need to do is cut a leaf off of an aloe vera plant, wash it and remove the leaf cover. Now, scrape out the pulp with a spoon.
Collect the gel and transfer it to a blender. Blend 2/3 times on high till you get a pasty pulp. refrigerate it in the fridge to get that cooling effect when you apply it on. At night, after your cleansing routine, apply the prepared aloe vera pulp and either leave it on all night as an overnight mask or just wash it off with cold water when the gel dries on your face. Pat dry and continue with the rest of your nighttime skincare routine. Repeat this 3 times a week to notice a change.
Can be taken internally and applied topically. Vitamin E fights free radicals due to a high presence of antioxidants. Also aids in giving the skin a natural glow. If ingesting the vitamin, you need to consume at least 1,000mg each day. On the other hand, if you opt to topically use it, you’ll need 1 or 2 capsules and mix them up with yogurt.
Apply this on as a mask, making sure to generously put it on the crow’s feet. Wash off the mask with cold water after 30 minutes. You will notice an instant hydration in your skin. Repeat as per your desire.
The king of oils! Coconut oil is naturally high in vitamin E and contains antimicrobial lipids. It is known to have treated various skin problems like eczema, psoriasis and other such skin conditions. It is very moisturizing and aids in delaying the sagging of the skin. Apply all over face and enough in the crow’s feet area to keep it moisturized overnight.
Coconut oil may also be used as a daily moisturizer and to keep the skin well hydrated is the key to holding up the aging process. This ritual should be included in your regular skincare routine.
The white part is high in magnesium and protein content. Both of which are vital for the health of our skin. Whip up an egg white of one egg and for added benefit add 1 tsp or 1/2 tsp (if you’re sensitive), of Apple Cider Vinegar. Now apply this mask to your entire face, carefully covering up the crow’s feet.
Make sure not to go too close to the eye area, especially the inner corners due to sensitivities. Better safe than sorry. The mask will dry up on your face, pulling the skin together. You will feel the firmness when you have it on. Wash off with cold water and pat dry. Repeat this routine once or twice to see effective results.
Papaya is probably the most underrated fruit for skin benefits. It is high in glycolic acid and contains an enzyme called papain, which helps remove dead skin cells and promotes cell regeneration. Also contains vitamin C and minerals such as copper, potassium, and magnesium. All these bring immense goodness to our skin, especially when sourcing them out naturally.
For this recipe, you need a ripe papaya, mash up one slice. When you have a pasty consistency, you’re ready to apply it on your face. Make sure you’ve cleansed before applying any mask. Leave it on for 30 minutes and wash off with cold water. Repeat 2 or 3 times weekly for faster results. You will see the skin around your eyes firming up and the crow’s feet slowly disappearing.
Environmental pollution and sun radiation are also very vital instigators for pre-mature aging, saggy skin, and crow’s feet. It is important that with all the mentioned practices above, you eat a well-balanced diet and wear sunscreen whenever you are outdoors.
