There are several causes for wrinkles under eyes, also know as crow’s feet. Some you can prevent, others you can’t, but you can always treat them once they started with Perricone MD.
Because the skin around your eyes is thinner, with less oil glands, elastin, and collagen, it’s one of the first places to show the signs of aging.
CAUSES OF CROW’S FEET
Wear and Tear Every time you smile, cry, rub your eyes in exhaustion, or make animated facial expressions, the area around your eyes is exercised and this wear and tear leads to wrinkles. There isn’t much you can do to avoid this cause of wrinkles.
Sun The sun causes wrinkles around the eyes for two reason. Sun damages skin and accelerates aging everywhere, especially this delicate area. It also causes you to squint, which in turn adds to more wear and tear. You can slow this process down by always wearing sunscreen, and wearing sunglasses or wide brimmed hats, to keep the sun out of your eyes.
Genetics Look at the elder women of your family, if they have deep wrinkles, chances are someday you will too. The drier your skin is genetically disposed to be, the more likely you will get wrinkles sooner. Again, there isn’t much you can do to prevent this cause of wrinkles around the eyes, except to keep the area moisterizered.
Smoking & Drinking Yet another reason to quit, smoking increases the levels of free radicals in your skin, which in turn leads to accelerated aging. Drinking alcohol dehydrates your skin, robbing it of the precious moister it needs to stay looking young.
Time With age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin, both things the eye area is already deficient in. Aging makes the skin even thinner and drier, increases the appearance of wrinkles.

In the constant battle to fight the signs of aging, free radicals are a major component in the damage done to our cells and in turn, our appearance.
What is a free radical?
A free radical is an unstable atom or molecule with a single unpaired electron in its outer shell. Electrons aim to exist in pairs, just like people.
By seeking out their molecular soul mate, they cause damage to healthy molecules when they steal electrons. In turn, they change the healthy molecule into a free radical, and the chain reaction that ensues ignites a vicious
How does this affect the appearance of aging?
While free radicals are known to cause many symptoms of aging, including cancer, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease, when they attack fat and protein molecules, it can create wrinkles.
How can you slow down this cycle?
Adjusting your diet to include Antioxidants is a good start. Antioxidants restrict the damage done by free radicals by donating electrons, which neutralize the radical without forming another. Try adding the following foods rich in antioxidants:
- Berries- Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries
- Green Tea
While adding antioxidants to your diet is a start, there’s more you can do especially when concerned with the appearance of wrinkles. Dimethylaminoethanol, or DMAE, functions as an antioxidant membrane stabilizer. Not only does DMAE stabilize the protective antioxidants, it works to provide some protection from free radicals to healthy molecules. DMAEs’ unique structure allows it to assimilate itself into the cell plasma membrane, strengthening the cell against free radical damage. DMAE also stimulates production of arachidonic acid and other proinflammatory mediators to stabilize the cell membrane by preventing their destruction.
DMAE provides additional anti-aging by assisting in the production of acetylcholine, a chemical responsible for creating muscle toning beneath the skin. DMAE assists in converting the B Vitamin choline into acetylcholine, by restricting metabolism of choline in peripheral tissue. Because of this, free choline will accumulate, eventually converting into acetylcholine.
Where can I get DMAE?
DMAE can be taken orally with supplements, or applied topically to assist in the reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. Dr. Perricone includes DMAE in the Omega-3 supplements as well as dozens of topical products including the Nurtitive Cleanser, Glycolic Cleansing Bars, Lip Plumper, Serum Prep, and High Potency Eye Lift.
