Wrinkles, including crow’s feet, are a sign of aging many would like to erase, and many people try to cover them up. Unfortunately, covering them can often make them look worse.
Read on to learn what you should never use if you have crow’s feet.
Crow’s feet appear due to skin elasticity and collagen loss combined with wrinkles caused by smiling and squinting. This area around our eyes is particularly thin and sensitive, and if you’re not using the right products, you could be making crow’s feet look worse.
Trying to hide crow’s feet often has the opposite effect. If you want to avoid emphasizing your crow’s feet, say goodbye to loose powder. Although we know loose powder is excellent for setting your concealer so that the makeup lasts longer, this product can settle in the wrinkles. That way, it will highlight your crow’s feet instead of covering them.
What to Do Instead?
If you want to avoid the creepy look, try using medium coverage creamy formulations. Such formulations will provide a more hydrated appearance and improve the look of crow’s feet. For the best results, don’t forget to use a primer before the foundation and concealer.
Pay Attention to the Ingredients
Price and brand name aren’t the only things you should consider when purchasing makeup. The ingredient list is by far the most important factor you should pay attention to. Avoid purchasing products that contain artificial colors, fragrances, or too much alcohol. These ingredients could irritate and dehydrate your skin.
