8 ways to treat crow's feet and other unsightly creases (goodbye eye wrinkles!)

Wrinkles are a natural part of aging. However, don’t be fooled into believing that you have absolutely no control of your skin. Know that you have options when it comes to treating and preventing crow’s feet and other signs of maturity on your skin. 
Crow’s feet is a term to describe the small wrinkles found at the corner of your eyes. It gets its name for obvious reasons—because it looks like a tiny crow left a footprint near your eye. As endearing as that sounds, nobody wants to have them!

According to the Mayo Clinic, there are a number of reasons a person may develop wrinkles, specifically crow’s feet.
Reasons include:
• Genetics
• Sun exposure
• Lack of sleep
• Smoking
• Drinking alcohol
• Poor diet
• Environmental pollution
The reasons you develop crow’s feet may be difficult to determine, but know that there are a few natural remedies that have been proven to be effective. Let’s discuss a few. 
1. Cucumber 
A cucumber is an excellent option for cleaning and calming the skin. According to Top Ten Home Remedies, the thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamins B5 and B6 nourish the skin and offers protection from damaging sun exposure. 
To use:
Cut a cucumber in half and rub the juices directly on the eye for a few minutes twice per day. 
2. Egg Whites
Egg white can work wonders for tightening the skin. As egg whites dry on the face, it causes the skin to become very taut. Repeated application will help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 
To use:
Simply beat egg whites into a froth and apply to the skin. Allow it to set until it drys. Remove with cool water. 
3. Coconut Oil
The concentrated levels of Vitamin E found in coconut oil works to repair damaged skin and delay the development of crow’s feet. Additionally, the oil works like a moisturizer to keep skin smooth and soft. 
To use:
Apply a small amount to the area of the eye and rub into skin. Allow it to set overnight before washing away in the morning. 
4. Milk
According to an article posted on Search Home Remedy, the glycolic acid found in milk helps repair damaged skin and promotes collagen in the skin. Drinking milk every day can help promote a collagen growth. Not a fan of milk? You can opt to apply it directly to the face with a cotton ball instead. 
To use:
Dab a cotton ball with milk and apply a thin layer all over the place. Pay particular attention to the eye area. Rinse. Repeat 2-3 times per week for best results. 
5. Aloe Vera
The antioxidant properties found in aloe vera ward against free radicals in the skin that may develop into wrinkles. The vitamins found in aloe vera can also protect, tone, and moisturize skin. 
To use:
Drink one tablespoon of aloe vera juice twice a day to ingest the antioxidant properties found in the plant. If you prefer not to drink it, you can apply the gel from the leaves to the skin before going to sleep. Wash away in the morning. 
6. Raw Honey and Yogurt
According to an article from Global Healing Center, a mixture of raw honey and yogurt proves to be a repairing concoction for the skin. The lactic acid found in yogurt works to exfoliate the skin while raw honey moisturizes and cleans bacteria. 
To use:
Apply one tablespoon of raw honey and equal parts yogurt. Apply the mask to the entire face and allow it to set 10 minutes before washing away. 
7. Avocado
Avocado is an excellent ingredient to include in a homemade mask. The oils found in avocado work to moisturize, tone and cleanse the skin. It also helps prep the skin to absorb valuable nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and E. According to Top 10 Home Remedies, the vitamin E and D found in avocado can boost collagen and diminish wrinkles. Keeping the skin moisturized will help slow down the natural progression of aged skin. 
To use:
Mash an avocado and apply an even layer to the face. Allow it to set for 20 minutes before removing. Repeat this once a day to keep skin moisturized. 
8. Chocolate
While eating just any chocolate probably won’t do your face much good; dark chocolate certainly can. It proves to not only be good news for your taste buds, but your skin as well. According to an article from Global Healing Center, cocoa found in dark chocolate contains epicatechin and catechin. These chemicals help protect the skin from UVB sun damage which can contribute to the appearance of wrinkles. 
To use:
Indulge in a few bites of chocolate per day to promote protection from the natural properties found in this delicious remedy.
