^ You hit the nail on the head! Anti-wrinkle creams are pointless for the most part. We're all going to get wrinkles sooner or later, it's no secret.

I have a friend who's only 17 and already uses anti-wrinkle cream. Apparently she says that her aunt used it at that age and has hardly any wrinkles. Personally though I think it's way to young. And there's no cream in the world that will totally prevent you from getting wrinkles.

We seem to care so much about skin care products and we often forget about creams are not everything. Sure this is not a healthy food thread, but i think people should rather focus on their eating habits and lifestyle, than getting excited about anti-wrinkle creams.

my dermatologist-son friend told me that, as an asian, i only need to worry about wrinkles once i'm between 35-45, as actual wrinkles might appear on my skin after i turned at least 55. i see it throughout my family, we barely age til a certain age, then BAM, you look like you need some serious face lifting.

i use normal eye cream and SPF moisturizer (less because of anti-aging effect but more because i don't want skin cancer...), i only occasionally use bits of anti aging product samples as nightcare when i wanna wake up with gloriously smooth skin.

well, when you reach your 20s you should start moisturizing your skin, so in the future, you wont have to start using anti wrinkle creams until wayy later than when you're supposed to.

its all about your lifestyle really, people age differently, and some of them are just insane about using anti aging creams too early. moisturizer is the only thing you'll ever need, and spf.

once you're wrinkled, you're wrinkled honey.

The truth is, 50% of what you're gonna look like older is genetics. If you want to know wether you'll get wrinkles or not, look at your mother and grandmother. For example, my grandmother has no wrinkles at 80, but she has naturally a very full (=fat) face that just sagged with age. She NEVER used SPF. And I know people from Northern Europe who had wrinkles at 18.
Genetics is something you can't control. What you can control are equally important things like:
1) Sugar consumption (every time your bloog sugar level spikes, some damage to your skin occures). I forgot the exact mechanism but I know foods with high glycemic index are killer to skin's appearance.
2) Smoking is the second biggest impact.
3) Sun damaga, don't need to say anything about that either.
4) Alcohol - apparently the byproducts of ethanol metabolism affect your skin in a bad way.
5) Sleep.
I'm sure creams and serums do some good but relying on them alone is silly.

Reese's are not that bad... if you eat a few after a proteine-y meal. Or if you just eat peanut butter instead. Tastes kindof similiar, non?

The body starts to "die" at 23. Cell renewal activity drops and drops...until you die So, before that would be better. I'd rather use a tinted mousturizer with spf than anti-wrinkle anything.

now Ida, that "death" comment really puts things into perspective

still, i'll cling to my asian-age-entirely-different-and-only-after-50 theory.

ask any asian here on this board (there's loads!), i guess they'll all agree. i hope so at least

Sun damage is at least half of wrinkles. My mom looks like and she's been in the sun forever. She is now very red and wrinkly. Like an old tomato. No anti wrinkle anything can save her now

I started using good skincare when I was like 15, and I have people guess my age to be much younger than I really am. I still carded in places actually.

I think you need a good mositurizing product at an early age, but something more anti aging/firming when you reach your mid to late 20s

I read a recent article that said that you should start doing Botox in your mid 30s because at that point its preventative. Most of the people who get Botox already have the lines, and are getting it to soften them. If you start earlier, it takes them longer to appear apparently.

Im going to fight age every step of the way, no matter what the cost. Im actually trying to work a deal with the man downstairs, something along the lines of Dorian Gray.
