Crow’s Feet are wrinkles around the eyes. Generally, people associate them with age, the wrinkles that begin to form at the outside corners of your eyes when you hit your mid-twenties. They may show up earlier for people who don’t take good care of their skin and later for those who do. But either way, crow’s feet are all but unavoidable. It is mainly due to loss of elasticity of skin and decrease of the amounts of collagen over the period of time. Other factors that make a person more likely to develop crow’s-feet are excessive sun exposure, smoking, high pollution, squinting, frowning and smiling.
