Aww, sorry to hear that!
Before you start thinking about anti-wrinkle creams, get to the heart of the problem first. Get some serious SPF, asap.
I have lived in blazing, sunny climates all my life (Florida and Arizona), and my mother drummed into me to use sunscreen from an early age. When I was in my mid-20s — not much younger than you — I started wearing SPF 30 or higher on my face, neck, upper chest/neckline, arms and hands daily. No if’s, and’s or but’s — I have always been religious about it. I have always carried sunscreen in my purse and re-applied it throughout the day after washing my hands. I didn’t get even the finest of wrinkles until I was in my mid-40s, and I know I would look very different now (at 50) if I hadn’t been slathering on the sunscreen all these years.
My mother didn’t start using sunscreen until it was too late — after driving in the sun all those years, she had dark age spots on her hands and forearms when she was my age, and I don’t have any.
Get some sunscreen, girl! If you need suggestions, I highly recommend Clinique CityBlock for your face — it is lightweight and greaseless and goes on beautifully under makeup. Then I use regular sunscreen on my neck/arms.

Thanks! I use spf 20 daily but maybe I will look into getting something higher. I am in no way a sun bathing person, however I do bike and do activities outside, in which I then use SPF 50. A lot of people I know don’t seem to see the differences in my face, but I see them. I still get mistaken for a 19 year old, but I guess I am fearful of that going away!

I’m thirty and my skin looks great so far. Move been wearing eye cream for five years and I slather on SPF every single day without fail.
Protect not fix!!!

Sunscreen, under eye moisturizers, and lots of water are supposed to help. I use aveeno.

i’m 28 and i notice when i am applying makeup that my eyes are not as smooth or tight as the girls in the tutorial videos i watch. it annoys me. so do those gray hairs i keep pulling out.
i don’t have any real wrinkles or lines yet, but i am very careful to ALWAYS wear sunscreen because sun damaged skin wrinkles much faster than undamaged skin. this is actually something you can really see when i am standing next to my three years younger sister. she has been tanning since she was a teen and she has wrinkles. i don’t.
i also wear sunglasses in the daylight to keep myself from squinting or furrowing my brows together because i noticed that those lines are very prominent in my mother’s face.
the only lines i never try to prevent are smile lines. i want to be an old person who has great smile lines.

I am almost 43 and most people think I’m early thirties. I had a farm and spent the better part of 20 years outside every day with no sunscreen (I know I know). Two things that helped me were 1) genetics (I know that doesn’t help) and 2)moisturizer (I have very dry skin and moisturize several times a day!)
I do have some fine lines that were a little deeper but I began using this product called Snoxin and it is AMAZING! Within a couple weeks, there is a huge difference. They also have a product called Nanoblur that works within a minute (great for nights out). Products are by Indeed Laboratories. Check out snoxin.com or nanoblur.com

a part of me wants to be like, I WILL BE GRACEFUL AND ELEGANT with my wrinkles, the other part of me whines and complains… the latter part usually over takes the first part.
