Hello, I'm a 17 year old male, I know this sounds weird but I'm actually starting to develope lots of facial wrinkles together with saggy eyebrows/eyelids.
The wrinkles started developing around 15, the eyelid/eyebrows a few days ago, I'm never in the sun, so that can't be the problem, please somebody help me out, how can this happen and what I can do to reverse it before I'm a 20 year old looking 40?

Sounds like bad genes. The best thing that actually works is, make sure you have a good deit, drink alot of water and of course sun protection. No wrinkle creams will give you any real results.

Honestly, if you say some of them developed over the last few days I would say it's just dryness. What's your skincare routine?

Hi Male17:

Wow. What a situation you are in. It is definatly something that you need to work on to stop it now. I hope you are engaged in a good dietary and excercise regime as often this will work to stop premature ageing. I would recommend Emu Oil products. The composition of these will work to stop the effects of ageing and help to reduce the visible wrinkles that you already have. Emu Oil has been developed of many years and was used by the Australian Aborigines for thousands of years before it was even brought oout commercially. I must point out that I own a company which provides Emu Oil products from Australia to citizens in the USA. I would like to talk to you more about this and provide you with more information. You are welcome to contact me at [email protected] and I will give you further information if you would like it.
I look forward to hearing back from you.

Regards,

Ben Doman

Hey thanks for the responds.
No I'm not using drugs =P I've been smoking since age of 13 but stopped a month ago, thats 4 years smoking, I've read that there can't be no permanent damage or skin aging before after atleast 5 years and I was smoking little compared to most people and I'm almost never in the sun so I doubt smoking/sun has anything to do with it.

My skin has been a little dry lately, but you think simple dryness can make your eyebrows sag? and how long will this last?

Hi Male17,

At 17, smoking or not, it is not normal to have the problems your describing. You should be more concerned about diet and what you eat/drink then what your putting on your skin. You should also consider going to see your family doctor if you haven't already.

There are certainly a lot of good skin care products on the market and I'm happy to recommend some, but I'm not sure any will help with the problems you've described.

I drink a galloon water everyday, eat very little (never hungry for some reason), have extreme metabolizm, none of my family members have bad or fast aging skin.
I have fair skin, but hell I'm not supposed to have a wrinkle until atleast 10 more years, this must be reversed, is plastic surgery my only option?
Whats the EMU oil, I've heard that name before, does it work?

And, this could not just be my skin being dry? (the sagging eyelid I mean) it's just like it's "heavy" and pushin down over my upper eyelid....

Agreed. Premature aging is caused by genetics or lifestyle. There are some things you can do to reduce this, such as essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. You should first find out if yours is genetics or not.

Tammy is right. You should find out what is going on there.
Maybe see a dermotologist? Emu oil is an excellent moisturizer. That, along with ha serum should cure your dry skin. I mix one drop of ha serum to three drops of emu at night.
As far as sagging skin around the eyes, I suggest maybe dmae serum, 4%, for your sagging eyelids. Just tap it around eye area. Dmae is a good firming product.

I would definitely see your doctor asap, could be more to the story than you know about, maybe some metabolic reason, or hormonal reason itself, but I wouldn't play around with it, make an appointment with your doctor, get some bloodwork done and then go from there.

Yes. I recommend you to consult a dermatologist or a doctor. Maybe, that's genetics but don't worry so much there's a remedy for that problem. Due to the advancement of medical science nowadays, your dermatologist will suggest a proper treatment such as botox injection or natural food supplements. But the problem is... this treatment is expensive!

Drink plenty of water, enough sleep, healthy diet, no drugs or smoking, regular washing of face not just morning and evening but mid-day also. USE ALL NATURAL PRODUCT, it won't clogged your porse.

Functional Aging means wisdom when

I tell you what makes my skin look great is the fatter I get the better my skin looks and feels. It's a fuller look, but try it.

Between my active life style, and being a nurse, I can't get bigger. It will but a cramp on my life style for sure.
