The face is one of the first places where aging is seen, especially around the eye area. Crow's feet are wrinkles around the eye creases, and these lines can add years to anyone's face. While aging is an inevitable part of life, prolonging its affects can come in the form of many items found around the kitchen. The use of eye creams and serums can help the collagen around the area replenish itself, but natural products have been around for centuries to keep that youthful look from fading.
Things You'll Need
- 1 egg white
- 1/4 cucumber
- 1/4 potato
- Cotton ball
Prevent wrinkles and discoloration around the eyes well before crow's feet appear by soothing the skin with cucumber. Take 1/4 of a cucumber and slice it into two pieces. Then add cool water to the eye area and lie down, placing the cucumber slices over the eyes and relaxing for 5 to 10 minutes. You can also use this time to apply a face mask that either moisturizes or cleanses while you relax with the cucumber.
Reduce a puffy appearance of the eye skin with the use of a potato. Take 1/4 of a potato and slice it into two pieces, just as before. Dab water onto the eye area, and then place the potato slices over the eyes and relax for 10 minutes. Raw potato has been known to tighten the skin, which can also help with the appearance of crow's feet.
Firm up crow's feet with egg whites. This natural product can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and it is found in virtually ever kitchen! Take 1 egg white, and beat it until it begins to form or liquefies. Then, apply the egg whites on the outside of the eye area and along the cheekbone where crow's feet are most prevalent.
Allow the egg whites to dry, which should take about 10 minutes. Then dab the area with water to moisten it up and remove with a cotton ball and cool water.
Moisturize with a serum or your favorite eye cream. Try to do an eye treatment each week for the best results, and drink plenty of water daily, so that the skin will stay well hydrated and firm.
