Crow’s feet are the most iconic wrinkles that form around the corner of the eyelids. The name is due to its resemblance with a crow’s foot. These wrinkles can form as fine lines that appear and disappear, depending on lack of sleep, and general exhaustion at first. With time, they become more pronounced and a fixed part of the facial feature.
Lines that extend outwards at the corner of the eyes. They often start as fine temporary lines and become more pronounced and fixed with time.

Protecting the skin from sun damage is the most important form of skincare as far as anti-aging goes. UVA and UVB both damage the skin at a cellular level, destroying collagen and elastin, which gives the skin its tensile strength as well as its suppleness. Although the skin naturally ages as is true of the rest of the body, overexposure to the sun can speed this process up by as much as 10 to 15 years.
After sun protection, proper diet, adequate sleep, and avoiding damaging habits like smoking and excessive alcohol consumption will help keep your skin as young as possible.
Anti-aging treatments can help to restore some of the skin’s suppleness. However, it’s important to understand the limitations of over the counter products; these are not drugs–they cannot alter the biology of the skin–and are not regulated as such, so their efficacy is naturally limited. They can help to make the skin appear younger temporarily, but they will not fundamentally alter your skin, so keep expectations realistic. Cosmetic treatments like soft-tissue fillers or Botox injections can make much more pronounced changes in the skin, however, they generally only last from 6 to 18 months depending on the treatment. Finally, cosmetic surgeries can make the most drastic and permanent improvements, but are also the most costly, and have some added risks associated with any surgical procedure.
