Causes of Crows Feet

Crow’s feet lines are caused by the small muscles in the outer corner of your eyes, as they contract through facial expressions like laughing, crying, stress and shock, their use overtime can cause fine lines. Over time you may begin to see that even with a blank expression or a rested face that these lines will remain on your face. 


Aside from the skin’s natural ageing process, there are lots of other factors that play an important part in how quickly and how early on your begging to age, such as;


  • Sun exposure
  • Wearing SPF
  • Diet 
  • Genetics
  • Skin care


Collagen production and elastin production are what help your skin keep its youthful, plump complexion. As we age, our production of these two proteins slows and you will start to find your skin developing fine lines and wrinkles over time.
