I’m only 25, BUT I was a tanning queen as a teenager and I have noticed recently that I’m starting to get crows feet wrinkles next to my eyes ahhh!!!
Do any of you have this problem and what types of creams or treatments should I use to make sure that I don’t have this problem on my wedding day?!?

I think the only way to get rid of them is with cosmetic treatments like dermal filler injections or botox from a dermatologisty.
I know there are lots of over the counter stuff that supposedly minimize it, but I’m not sure they’re all that effective.
I don’t really have any, but I’ve been wearing a moisturizer with SPF everyday for the past decade- and was never much for the sun before that.
I would probably recommend getting a really good primer to go under your makeup to keep the foundation and powder from collecting in the crows feet. I use Laura Geller Spackle under makeup primer (http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P161206). It did a REALLY good job of keeping my makeup in place with only one touchup on my wedding day.

i am a beauty therapist and theres a couple of things you can do. Firstly up your water intake, dehydration lines are generally around the eye area, this can exentuate any existing wrinkles. Secondly, botox is your best bet by far. But this can be a bit unrealistic price wise and is to some concidered pretty extreme. Avoid shimmer and high lights directly to the area and also avoid a cakey concealer as this will high light the area. Theres a new product out that freezes lines, wrinkles etc, have a few clients that use it an it does work for a certain amount of time. It would be fine if you put it on immediately before you get your makeup done and will last for approx bout 9-10 hours (though it states 12) This should get you through your reception,ceremony and photos. Mainly keep the water and moistrising up to minimize the lines!!!

rosychicklet is onto a good thing with the primer too, its good stuff. I personally use mac. Get one with a hit of green tea as this will brighten your complexion

I am only 22, and definitely not experiencing wrinkles yet, but I heard that if you start soon you never get them 🙂
The cream I linked to above actually really helped me lose the dark circles I have inherited. It’s also supposed to be good for crow’s feet too. It’s not too expensive, so it can’t be a bad thing to try! 🙂
