File this under “sad but true”: The first signs of aging—crow’s-feet—show up earlier than we ever realized. In happier news, the right eye cream can make all the difference. It has been years since those first fines lines around the eyes or crows feet started showing on my face. Not being a fan of needles Botox was out of the question. Not being one with a lot if discretionary income I gave no thought at all to cosmetic surgery. No facelifts for the girl! I did however go on a quest for an eye cream that would slow down the signs of aging. Maybe even a cream that would reverse what I had come by honestly….crow’s feet, laugh lines, a furrowed brow.
I look back and realize there were a two things I did that caused the early appearance of crow’s feet.
- Exposure to the sun – as we know, the sun’s UV rays are the foremost damaging element on the skin. Prolonged exposure to the sun makes the skin lose its elasticity and firmness. As a young woman I was a sun worshiper. I lived on the Gulf Coast and took full advantage of any opporutnity to “soak up some rays.” Imagine the skin damage to a strawberry blonde!
- Squinting – this undesirable facial expression aggravates crows feet. I always had vision problems and enough vanity to get in the way of wearing proper eyewear. My early years were spent squinting and I’m paying now.
Avoiding these major wrinkle causing factors can spare you those lines around the eyes. At least for a few years. You may also seek relief from the best wrinkle creams on the market. Something I’ve been on a quest to find. Over the last decade I’ve tried dozens below are, in my opinion the best you can buy.
This new roll-on is so hyped that it even has a waiting list. It’s easy to store in your handbag for last-minute fixes, and the cream is tinted, so acts a concealer while it gets to work. It is by far my favorite. Not only does it work to keep wrinkles away, it repairs wrinkles that have already formed. I LOVE this stuff but don’t tell anyone. The moment word is out, they will take it off the market!
Hide hangovers with ‘GinZing’, a perky cream containing ginseng for radiance and caffeine to give you a bit of a buzz. It’ll erase evidence of any late-night shenanigans.
3. Nivea Visage
Nivea’s Q10 co-enzyme has been busting saggy bums for over 10 years; the eye version is just as effective, reducing puffiness and soothing dry, sensitive skin.
French ladies are never wrong, and this best seller has quite a following on the Continent. Its simple, hydrating formula contains ‘silk pearl’ light reflectors for an immediate boost to tired skin.
The cognoscenti’s skincare of choice, ‘Total Eye Care’ is up there with the Fountain of Youth. It tightens skin, reduces bags and puffiness, smooths lines and moisturises sore bits. Although meant for older skin, it’s also good for soothing dryness or irritation.
