Smiling makes you look younger and gives you a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, the annoying lines at the outer corner of the eyes, also called crow’s feet, can prevent us from smiling as much as we would want to.
Crow’s feet are in fact wrinkles cause by the low levels of elastin and collagen as we get older. Their appearance is accelerated by excessive alcohol intake, smoking and extended exposure to the harmful UV light.
