Hi guys, well I'm only 21 years old so one would think I shouldn't have problems with eye wrinkles but everyone in my family seems to get wrinkles really early.


I have noticed that over the past few months I got a lot of wrinkles (which might be due to my weight loss as well...). My skin is oily and breaks out easily. Nevertheless I use a light moisturizer day and night (day: Clean&Clear Norning Glow, Night: St. Ives Elastin moisturizer). My skin feels better ever since I started using moisturizers however the wrinkles under my eyes seem to get worse. When I apply make-up, eveyrthing gets "caught" right in my wrinkles: the foundation, powder, eyeshadow... it's frustrating.

I wanted to ask you if you have any advice on how to reduce these wrinkles? I understand that being only 21 I shouldn't be using any anti-aging products. But is there something else I can use instead?

Any advice will be GREATLY appreciated!

I am much older than you, but I have found that when I eat healthy and drink alot of water, my wrinkles are much less noticeable. My entire skin becomes more soft and healthy looking. At your age, I would focus on proper diet and sun protection. This will help you the most in the long run.

Lancome high resolution. That's what my boyfriend bought me for my birthday. I don't know if it works on wrinkles, but it defintely makes my under eyes brighter. whether it is worth the 100 bucks? I don't know.

I still personally use the age old trick of vasaline, pull and add heat from a hairdryer, sure it's only worth a day of fix, but no product will permantently erradicate eye wrinkles. Use the normally vasaline, not the mint kind! Good Luck.

Stay out of the sun and use sunscreen consistently. Wrinkles at a young age around the eyes are almost ALWAYS caused by sun exposure or repetitive facial movements. This may mean you're smiling a lot which is a great thing but it does have an impact on creating lines on the face.

Do make sure that you wear a good sunscreen. It saves your skin from premature aging. You also need to make sure that you are taking lots of fluid before going out in the sun.
Eat healthy. Tired skin and eyes are more prone to wrinkles...so make sure you get a good 7-8 hrs of sleep.
You can use a good eye cream or gel. Spa products are really good for this problem as i've used them myself. Or else you can go for clinique or similar end products if you want to spend the extra bucks.
Hope this helps.

I think vaseline prevents skin from drying out chronically but do you guys get milia from using vaseline as an eye cream?

And I recommend get enough anti-deoxidant in your diet.

I, too, am on the NO vaseline train. I worry about petroleum products anywhere on my skin at any time. All good helps here and one more: sleep on back. Don't let face get all squoooshed in pillow. Even tho it feels wonderful. You. Must. Resist! LOL.

Those lines/creases are the worst to get rid of.

Oh... sleeping on my face is the one thing I can't resist unfortunately!
I can't sleep on my back. I tried so many times in vain I always end up with my face on the pillow! I even tried satin pillowcases but my head slips from my pillow everytime and consequently I got a neck ache so I had to start using my usual cotton pillowcases!

I use silk pillowcases - and I don't wake up with face creases. They are really very good and you don't slide around on them. If, I slept on my back, poor hubby wouldn't get a good night's sleep, with the snoring.
