In myths and legends, the mermaid's fishtail is a beautiful image, and the mermaid skirt derived from it is very popular among female friends. But not all "crow's tail" will be welcomed, such as crow's feet. Crow's feet are wrinkles that appear between the corners of the eyes and temples. The lines are very similar to the lines on the tail of a fish, so they are vividly called crow's feet. Crow's feet are the "enemy of life" of many women who love beauty. How to make crow's feet appear later and less? Can it be removed after it appears?
"I use eye cream every day, why do I still have crow's feet"
Eye cream is a skin care product specially for the eyes. Many friends have developed the habit of using eye cream every day since they were in their 20s, but the crow's feet continue to deepen and increase, and they don't feel that the eye cream is working. Why is this?
Proper use of eye cream will indeed improve some mild, dry skin crow's feet. But that's not to say that using eye cream will prevent crow's feet. The formation of crow's feet is a natural result of aging. Due to the gradual aging of the elastic fibers of the face, the moisture and subcutaneous fat of the eye skin gradually decrease, and the skin around the eyes that loses elasticity is pulled by the interaction of other facial muscles, which leads to the appearance of crow's feet. Specifically, there are the following factors:
1. Endocrine disorders. Due to the decline of neuroendocrine function, the rate of protein synthesis is reduced, the activity of fibroblasts in the dermis is reduced or lost, and the collagen fibers are reduced and broken, resulting in decreased skin elasticity and increased wrinkles at the corners of the eyes.
2. Collagen breakdown. Wrinkles, crow's feet, eye lines, and fine lines are all oxidation lines. When the collagen in the dermis is oxidized due to the above reasons, the collagen breaks like a spring. After breaking, it loses its supporting effect on the epidermis, causing the epidermis to collapse unevenly, forming wrinkles in the corners of the eyes and other parts.
3. Climate and personal factors. In addition to the natural aging of the skin, the appearance of crow's feet is also related to the following factors: weather factors such as sun exposure, dryness, and cold; natural conditions such as skin thickness, subcutaneous fat volume, etc.; Personal habits such as the amount of contraction of the lateral orbicularis oculi muscle. These factors can lead to loss of fiber elasticity and increase wrinkles around the eyes.
"Why do my crow's feet appear earlier than others"
This is another question that is often asked. Same age, different experience, really "heartbreaking"! Through the above analysis of the causes of crow's feet, we can draw the following conclusions: These people are more likely to have crow's feet:
1. People who are stressed, often stay up late, lack sleep, and use their eyes frequently. Because such people lack rest, the activity of eye tissue will be reduced to a certain extent.
2. People who often do outdoor activities and are exposed to a lot of sunlight. Because of long-term exposure to strong ultraviolet rays, the free radicals in the skin will increase greatly, which will accelerate the aging of the skin.
3. People who often use computers and mobile phones. Because such people are exposed to electromagnetic radiation from computers and mobile phones for a long time, the cells inside the skin will be damaged, resulting in cell aging.
4. People with dry and dehydrated facial skin. Because lack of water will reduce the activity of eye cells, coupled with the lack of proper skin care on a daily basis, thus accelerating the aging of the skin.
5. People with expressive faces. Because of the long-term expressiveness and love to laugh, the facial muscles involve the skin, so creases are formed. But laughing is not the main cause of crow's feet, so don't stop laughing just because laughing will cause crow's feet. This is not worth the candle. The amount of laughter can be appropriately reduced.
"Can crow's feet come and go?"
Wrinkles are generally divided into two types, dynamic lines and static lines. If there are wrinkles on the face without expression, this is the static line; if there are wrinkles on the expression, but not obvious when there is no expression, this is the dynamic line. To get rid of crow's feet, you must first determine what type of wrinkles you have.
1. Static lines can be removed by injecting hyaluronic acid. Dealing with static wrinkles is the strength of hyaluronic acid, such as common crow's feet, nasolabial lines, mouth corner lines, and nasolabial folds can be improved by injecting hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is usually supplemented once after 6 months to 12 months, and the specific time needs to be determined according to the individual's metabolism and absorption speed.
2. Dynamic lines can be removed by injecting Botox. Botox is best at removing dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines. The clinical application of botulinum toxin is relatively safe. After injection, the effect can generally last for 3 to 6 months, so it can be injected again after about 6 months. However, individual circumstances are different, and the re-injection time varies.
3. The combined use of hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin will have a longer-lasting effect on wrinkles, but it is best to use them at intervals. First inject botox to remove stretching dynamic wrinkles, and then inject hyaluronic acid at an interval of 10 to 12 days to remove static wrinkles.
Avoid Misunderstandings in Using Eye Cream
Although we cannot reverse the law of natural aging, the use of eye cream can prevent crow's feet to a certain extent, provided that the eye cream is selected and used correctly. The wrong way of using it will not alleviate the generation of crow's feet. Common mistakes in using eye cream are as follows:
1. Applying too much eye cream. If too much eye cream is applied, it will burden the skin around our eyes. The amount of eye cream should be about two grains of rice.
2. The eye cream is applied incorrectly. The correct way to apply it is to dip a little eye cream with your ring finger, and then slowly rub the two ring fingers together until it is almost absorbed, and then massage evenly along the corner of the eye and the end of the eye. In this way, the eye cream will be fully absorbed.
3. The choice of eye cream is not correct. When choosing an eye cream, be sure to choose the product that is most suitable for our skin type. The eyes are the most aging part of the whole face, so we have to choose according to our age. If you use eye care products in your 40s when you are in your 20s, it will be difficult for your skin to absorb the active ingredients, and the effect will not be very good.
