While it’s not fair, it’s a fact of life: The delicate skin around your eyes is often prone to showing signs of aging, like dark circles, sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and crows feet, first. So, what can you do? Well, if you haven’t done so already, it could be time to add an eye cream to your skin care routine. Today, we’re here to focus specifically on a skin care routine for crows feet. Below, find out what causes crows feet in the first place—and learn about our best eye creams for crows feet.
To start with, crows feet are those tiny wrinkles that can make themselves known at the corners of your eyes. Crows feet are a common sign of skin aging—and there are a few different causes. One of the most common reasons why you might be noticing crows feet? That would be aging. Some things in life are unavoidable, and aging is one of them. We all get older. And as we age, wrinkles can start to appear. As we told you earlier, one of the first places to show visible signs of aging can be around the eyes, where skin is more delicate. Another cause of crows feet can be sun damage. Spending time in the sun sans protection can lead to visible signs of skin aging down the road, like dark spots and fine lines and wrinkles. (So, make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 daily as directed, limit your amount of time in the sun, seek shade, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.)
OK, we’re getting to what you really want to know. We’ve rounded up our best eye creams to help minimize the appearance of crows feet around your eyes. Check out our options for different age groups to find the right one for your skin care routine.
If you’re in your 20s or 30s…try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream. With age, skin can start to look less firm and fine lines and wrinkles can appear more visible. The delicate eye area is particularly susceptible to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (i.e. crows feet) as well as dark circles under the eyes. This eye cream can help minimize the appearance of crows feet and dark circles with continued use over time.
How to use it: Apply a small amount of eye cream to your eye area using your fingertip. Gently blend the eye cream in, and use it morning and night as the last step in your skin care routine.
If you’re in your 40s…try the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Eye Renewal Eye Cream. As you age, you may notice a decrease in overall appearance of vitality of your skin, even around the eye area. That’s where this eye cream comes in. This eye cream can help reveal a radiant-looking eye contour. Almost instantly, your eye area is hydrated and appears more toned, while with continued use, crows feet will appear smoothed out, dark circles will look visibly minimized, and eyelid crepiness will appear reduced.
How to use it: Every morning and evening, apply a small amount of eye cream around the entire eye area using fingertips and pat in gently until thoroughly absorbed.
If you’re in your 50s…try the L’Oréal Paris Wrinkle Expert 55+ Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment: Your skin has evolving anti-wrinkle needs as it ages. Starting in your 50s, skin can lose vital nourishment, which can lead to an increase in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This effective eye cream formula with calcium, helps to improve smoothness and visibly reduce the appearance of signs of aging, including crows feet and dryness.
How to use it: Every morning and night, apply a small amount of eye cream around the entire eye area using fingertips and smooth gently until absorbed.
If crows feet aren’t your biggest eye area concern, don’t worry, that’s not all eye creams can help you with. Want to find an eye cream that can help minimize the appearance of under-eye bags? Check out our article, Our Best Eye Creams for Puffiness.
