Crow’s feet are the crinkly lines that appear at the outer corners of the eyes. As the skin around the eyes is thinner than on other parts of the face, crow’s feet lines often appear as early as in the mid-20s. Avoiding smoky atmospheres and using sunscreen will surely help prevent crow’s feet, and crows feet exercises will help diminish them – even if they are quite deep.
Squinting is likely to make crow’s feet worse. You don’t have to be in bright sunlight to squint; you might be squinting without realizing when working at the computer or watching TV. If you find yourself frequently squinting, it may be a good idea to visit an optician to see if there is a problem with your eyesight. Bright sunshine squinting can usually easily rectified with a pair of good-quality sunglasses.
Crows Feet Exercises Instructions
The top facial exercise trainers recommend quite similar exercises to reduce crow’s feet. Deborah Crowley from Flex Effect, and Carolyn Cleaves from Carolyn’s Facial Fitness, both recommend exercises that involve covering the lines with your fingers and pulling them toward the hairline, while squeezing your eyes tightly shut. The following video shows Carolyn Cleaves from Carolyn’s Facial Fitness demonstrating this effective crow’s feet exercise.
An alternative simple exercise to reduce crow’s feet is to place the sides of your index fingers on the outer corners of your eyes and quickly open and close your eyes, around 30 to 60 times. As you do this, your fingers will move with the muscles toward the center of your face. Don’t try to stop this, the added weight of your fingers is enough to build the orbicularis occuli, which is a muscle that encircles the entire eye. Do these crows feet exercises at least once a day for maximum results.
