Laughter is healthy! But did you know that laughter also causes the first wrinkles around your eyes? CEO Cindy explains in this blog how they arise, and how you can prevent and reduce them.   

 

What are crow's feet?   

Crow's feet are small wrinkles in the outer area of your eyes. The shape of these wrinkles is resembles the feet of the crow, hence the name 'crow's feet'. 
  
The skin around your eyes is very thin and fragile, making it more sensitive to skin sagging. This is why around the age of twenty we have to deal with the first signs of "laugh lines" around the eyes. In addition, this part of the skin is connected to the mimicry of your face. When you smile, or frown, for example, these wrinkles will become visible. 
 

How can I prevent crow's feet?  

It is important to moisturize your skin well to delay the appearence of crow's feet as long as possible.

Tip 1: Hydrate your skin  
Well-hydrated skin remains soft and supple, which makes it easier for laugh lines to reshape. LOOkX Retinol2ndG Eye rescue moisturizes, strengthens and protects the delicate skin around your eyes. In addition, drink enough water to give your skin an extra boost! 

Tip 2: Wear sunglasses outside   
This protects the thin skin around your eyes and ensures that you squeeze your eyes less in bright light.  
 
Tip 3: Healthy lifestyle   
In general, a healthy lifestyle is important in preventing wrinkles, including crow's feet. Try to relax, sleep, exercise and eat healthy. Especially dietary fiber and antioxidants help to keep the skin healthy for as long as possible.   

Tip 4: Use an SPF every day   
UV radiation is responsible for no less than 80% premature skin aging, such as wrinkles, pigment and sagging of your skin. It is therefore very important to use a product with a SPF every day, even in winter. LOOkX Sun fluid SPF50 offers your skin UVA and UVB protection from sunlight, prevents wrinkles, soothes the skin and protects it from air pollution. 

 
How can you reduce crow's feet?  
Tip 1: Use a nourishing eye cream  
By using a moisturizing and nourishing eye cream, you keep the skin around your eyes supple. The LOOkX Retinol2ndG eye rescue is a powerful "smoother" that not only nourishes and moisturizes, but also lifts and firms.     
 
Tip 2: Retinol  
Retinol is the ultimate anti-ageing ingredient, but can make your skin very sensitive. The LOOkX R&D lab has succeeded in incorporating a unique form of retinol, the Retinol2ndG molecule,  into our products for an irresistible result, without irritation!  It has a stimulating effect on the connective tissue of the skin and makes all forms of wrinkles disappear.      
 
Tip 3: Exfoliate  
Easier said than done! The skin around your eyes is as much as 10 times thinner and three times more sensitive than the rest of your face, so you can't just use any exfoliating product. The LOOkX Vitamin cocktail scrub is gentle enough for your vulnerable eye and lip area. A nice addition to your weekly care!
