Crow’s feet are small wrinkles stretching outward from the outer corners of eyes. Generally these appear in early to late 30s of women. You may call these ‘laugh lines’ but these are inevitable signs of aging. Yes, you heard it right: SIGNS OF AGING!!
Our facial skin stretches smooth like a rubber band due to elastic properties. As we get older, our skin loses its elasticity and results in the formation of wrinkles as our body parts start to droop. The collagen and elastic fiber changes cause the formation of these wrinkles. With age, we lose collagen and hyaluronic acid and it causes the skin to become loose and form wrinkles.
