How To Reduce Crows Feet

5 Tips on How to Reduce Crows Feet

There are several ways you can reduce the visibility of crows feet, and even delay their arrival.


Many of the factors which cause crows feet wrinkles can be minimised with simple lifestyle changes. If you want to prevent and reduce crow's feet, adopt these five practical strategies:

1. Protect Yourself From The Sun

Manage the amount you expose yourself to the sun's harmful (and ageing) UV rays.

Always protect your skin with a hat, long clothing and a high SPF sunscreen. NIVEA UV Face Shine Control SPF50 is perfect for everyday sun protection. It's non-greasy, yet moisturising formula is extra light and quickly absorbed.

Always read the label. Use only as directed.


2. Shield Your Eyes

Reduce glare with sunglasses and if you need reading glasses or corrective lenses – wear them.

Glasses help prevent you from overworking the muscles and skin around your eyes, which can cause wrinkles.

3. Relax Your Skin

Try to be conscious of, and reduce, these common ways in which you can stretch your delicate skin:
  • Resting your head on your hand
  • Frowning
  • Rubbing your eyes
  • Sleeping on your side or front

4. Boost Your Skin's Moisture Levels

Drink plenty of water and choose hydrating skin care products.

NIVEA Cellular Filler Hyaluron Eye Cream uses Hyaluronic Acid technology to visibly breathe life back into your skin by keeping your skin hydrated, supple, and elastic.

Hyaluronic acid is a powerful, naturally occurring carbohydrate that binds with, and releases, moisture into the upper layers of your skin.

5. Consider a Natural Crows Feet Treatment

The vitamins and minerals contained in natural home remedies for crows feet can significantly reduce their appearance, including:

  • Egg whites
    Packed with proteins, potassium, and magnesium, a whipped egg white applied around your eye will help tighten and hydrate your skin.

  • Lemons and yoghurt
    Apply a simple mixture of full fat natural yogurt and fresh lemon juice to your neck and face. Avoid your eyes.
    Leave on for about 20 minutes and rinse with warm water, before applying your favourite moisturiser.
    The natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) in lemons and the lactic acid in yogurt help to remove dead skin cells which can weaken your skin and cause crow's feet.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
