Crow’s feet are not especially fun to have. They don’t look great, and they have a terrible tendency to make you feel old. Thankfully, there are a lot of easy ways to get rid of them, many of which aren’t difficult to perform at all. It may be a little too easy to get them, but thankfully it’s not difficult to lose them. Many methods for getting rid of crow’s feet work with things that you probably already have around the house, and if not, it’s nothing too difficult to find.


The first way you can get rid of crow’s feet is cucumber. In addition to being fairly tasty, cucumbers are filled with vitamins and properties that are very good for the skin and can work to lessen the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes. Simply rubbing a slice of cucumber around the eyes gently will go a long way; you’ll want to do with twice a day for a few minutes at a time. Alternatively, you can grind up the cucumber and rub the juices around your eyes, washing it off after around 10 minutes. Riboflavin is a vitamin from the Vitamin B group (B2) that is found in cucumber, which works very well at maintaining smooth, healthy skin.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is very commonly used to maintain healthy skin. It can be applied even before crow’s eyes begin to form to prevent them from forming at all. There are many cosmetic products and herbal medicines that make use of Aloe Vera, because of the antioxidants it contains, including vitamins such as Vitamin A, B12, C, and E. An Aloe Vera gel should be applied around the eyes. Ideally, it will be left on overnight before being washed off in the morning. This is a popular practice among those who are wishing to maintain healthy, hydrated skin.


Raw papaya contains Vitamin C, as well as a protein called papain, which works to clean dead tissue (among various other uses). With these two features, a piece of raw papaya can be gently rubbed against crow’s feet to help remove them. This also works if the pulp of the papaya is mixed with dry oatmeal and the mixture applied. Either way, it should be left on for approximately 10 minutes before being rinsed off. If being mixed with oatmeal, this will only be necessary a few times per week. Otherwise, it is best to apply daily. This is because oatmeal works naturally to heal dry or irritated skin, and it will work in conjunction with the papaya on crow’s feet.

There are dozens of natural ways to remove crow’s feet, as well as many surgical treatments available. While natural remedies are easier to attain, they are not the only ways to deal with these irritating occurrences. There are many effective ways of attaining healthy, wrinkle-free skin that are easily affordable, simple to find, and not at all difficult or time-consuming when being used to get rid of truly frustrating crow’s feet.
