I’m pretty lucky. Thanks to good genes, daily sunscreen since my teens and lots of big sunglasses (I hate squinting, I will wear sunglasses outside at any possible moment), my eyes are relatively wrinkle free for my age. But that doesn’t mean I ignore that area! I’m all about eye creams (check out dermatologists’ favorite eye creams if you need a good one).
But if you really want to see results when treating your crow’s feet, rather than just preventing them from appearing (like me), what should you do? I asked a few dermatologists for their favorites to actually treat crow’s feet.
Karen Stolman, MD is a Dermatologist in Salt Lake City and she writes Skinality For at home, I recommend topicals containing retinoids and growth factors.
Debra Jaliman, MD is a Dermatologist in New York City For crows feet it’s good to use retinol at night but be sure to uses a sunscreen in the morning. You can also use peptides which stimulates collagen production.
Fayne L. Frey, MD is a Dermatologist in West Nyack, NY and the founder of Fry Face, a product selection tool As moisturizers, anti-wrinkle creams increase hydration of the skin temporarily reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! The most effective way to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including crows feet around the eyes, is to moisturize the skin in the morning and evening. Apply sunscreen daily, scientifically proven to be the most effective over the counter anti-aging preventative on the market today.
Dr. Goldfaden At home you can use any types of eye creams. Look for ingredients such as Arnica, hyaluronic acid, rice bran extract and soy peptides. These help to remove darkness, puffiness and wrinkles. Our Bright Eyes targets darkness, puffiness and fine lines and wrinkles.
