Hey Ladies~ Wondering what products you currently use and recommend to prevent wrinkles? I’ve been using a moisturizer with SPF since I was about 23-24, and I ALWAYS put a stronger sunscreen on my face when I go to the beach/ pool in the summer. I think I’ve been pretty good with prevention, but just curious to see what other good producs are out there. I currently use Clinique’s Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense mouisturizer. At the old age of 29 :p I’m definitely thinking more about this these days….

I only use plain ole Oil of Olay. I am 40 and I think that it works, I don’t have any wrinkles.

I agree! I’m almost 41 and use Oil of Olay. My Mom also uses it and I don’t think she looks her age either.

I cleanse with a Clarisonic, tone with witch hazle, use Aveeno moisterizer morning and night with Oil of Olay eye serum morning and night as well. My skin is so soft and smooth 🙂 I am 27 and all about prevention!

Eucerin – their cleanser, daytime SPF 30 lotion, and their Q10 cream. I use L’Oreal or Garnier eye cream. I’m told I look younger than 41 so I think they are working.

i’m obsessed with my skin- i’ve suffered from mild acne since about age 10 so i’ve tried EVERYTHING. i’m 33 and my skin is smooth and wrinkle free 🙂
1. clarisonic- such a great tool for exfoliating
2. retin-a (or products with retinol)- i’ve been using since about age 24 or 25 and whenever i stop, i notice a difference immediately. this is also the #1 anti-aging recommendation from my dermatologist friend. it’s the only thing that restore elasticity.
3. cetaphil moisturizer
4. stay hydrated
i get tons of compliements on my skin and i always share my “secrets”.

I’ve been using products from Arbonne’s Re9 skincare system for about seven or eight years, and I really like them. However, I will be interested in seeing what others say on this thread, because, now that I am married and am not currently working, I am hoping to find a less-expensive line that I won’t need to order online that I will like just as well.

Me three! I’m 41 and wrinkle-free, using Olay Regenerist serum & lotion with SPF daily. I think the 2 most important things though are protecting from sun damage and not smoking.

Me four! I’m been an Oil of Olay person my whole life and I think it works great. I’m 35 and get told I look like I’m in my late 20s pretty regularly. I do have lines on my forehead, but have had those since 20s…boooo! I’m very expressive. My mom has used Olay forever and her skin looks great! I now use the regenerist line too. I did recently purchase retin-a and am thinking about starting that as well. I’ve tried strivectin as well – but I also stick to olay for my day to day. Oh and I’m a clarisonic gal as well…..LOVE IT!

Sunscreen everyday on the face. I use johnson and Johnson Purpose facial cleanser – very milld, cleanes well and won’t strip skin of oils. And I swear by DMAE fluid by Reviva labs. I;m 54 and here is a pic of me taken Saturday.

is there a specific retin-a or retinol product you use? I’ve been looking into this lately but haven’t actually bought anything.

So true! I’ll be 41 next month and feel mostly wrinkle-free!! Yay for Oil of Olay!

Oh! How could I forget… I also use Retin-A! I use the lowest strength (.025%) and in the winter, I use it every other day due to dryness. I’ve also had mild-ish acne since my teens, so it helps with that, too! I plan to use Retin-A for as long as I can get a Rx, as I know it’s one of the best things to use for your skin!

@Meowkers I use prescription retin-a micro .25% from my derm. it’s a hassle bc it is expensive and insurance companies seem to think you can’t have acne after age 25. i guess a lot of women in their 30s & 40s use it for the anti-aging properties, so they make you jump through hoops. that said, find a derm and get a script. they usually have samples, too.
@MCC919 i will use it forever, too! our faces will look 25 and our bodies will be decrepit 🙂 i use it on my forehead every night and my whole face just 2 or 3 days a week.
and ladies, don’t forget your neck and hands! moisturize and exfoliate!
