I jumped on the anit-aging bandwagon at the ripe old age of twenty two. Day cream w/spf, Nightcream with q-10 and eye cream are all in the repitoire. I'm currently contemplating starting up the microdermabrasion.

I'm so going down fighting!

In the morning I use avon under eye lightener and moisturizer and a regular moisturizer with SPF.

in the evening before bed I use a thick night cream on my neck and face and a nighttime undereye cream - both avon (mum's an avon lady)

I've been doing this for years.

I don't really have any wrinkles but I have noticed some sagging. My dad's side of the family is extremely prone to gross baggy underye circles and I know I've inherited it, which is why I'm anal about my eye cream.

Over the last year or 2 I've been using the various eye creams and night moisturizers that I've gotten free with the Clinique bonuses. A few months ago I ran out of the one and decided to go get a recommendation of what I should be using. I went to the Clinique counter since I've been using their skin care products for years and the lady working was completely useless. She told me to consider trying the moisturizer with sunscreen and other than that I was too young for the rest of the specialized products as they were for women in their 50's. :confused:

So yeah, I could use some recommendations myself.

I'm a big fan of Vichy LiftActive myself and Vichy Reti-C eyes. The LiftActive cream is great for firming up skin and I fine the Reti-C eye really keeps crows feet at bay and helps to firm up the under eye area.

i feel like i just wandered into a thread about nuclear phsyics.

i am so not on the up and up when it comes to this stuff... i'm 25, and "should" start thinking about this stuff... i've noticed some wrinkles - but slopping expensive goo on my face just seems so... paranoid?

i think the real key is to stay out of the sun or wear proper sunscreen, drink lots of water, get lots of sleep and take multi-vitamins... prevention, i guess?

somehow, i just find the marketing ploys behind all of those ridiculously expensive creams so deceitful and fear mongering... it's not like you have any 'control group' to see if the stuff's actually working for *you*.

wait! i propose that someone try these products on only HALF of their face for a period of one year, and report back! :p

Oil of Olay and L'oreal Wrinkle Decrease.

I'm up for trying something new.

Nothing yet, but baby oil. My mom told me not to fuck with the skin around my eyes too much, that will give me wrinkles. She was 47 when she passed away and she had maybe two-three max. I never believed her, I always thought she used all kinds of creams and shit, but she swore by baby oil.

So that's what I use.

Ahhh does that mean I have to start at 23?
I wear big sunglasses when I'm outside, hopefully that's protecting my eye area. I moisturize at night but nothing with anti-aging stuff yet.

i've been slapping on the nite cream/eye cream since my early 20s but being asian means i also hide my age better. I've stopped using moisturizers of any sort in the last year as my oil glands are over active and i've been advised to skip to the fake stuff since i'm producing more than enough.

currently i'm using:

Day eye cream = Decleor Hydra Flora
Prescriptives Super Lines Preventor - used to keep moisture close to the skin, high water content, forms a barrier to the env't (e.g. pollution). Holds my makeup up all day vs melting off 1/2way thru the day
Night eye cream = Repage eye treatment. I got it from my esthetician - so seaweed and marine minerals. Doesn't hold makeup well so cannot be used during the day

i'm also doing a microdermabrasion @ home - once/wk for 8 wks, then off for 8 wks. It's not lines i'm looking to get rid of but mostly scarring due to acne. It has made my skin smoother. On my 6th wk on. Will keep y'all posted.

Yes, this is what a plastic surgeon told me when I was enquiring about restylane, botox and all those age-defying creams.

I don't think so, however I do think that products within the same price range are about as effective as one another.

I see anti aging products just as a supplement to staying out of the sun, drinking water, eating well and generally taking good care of myself.

i feel the same way!

And that's a great idea about using products on only half your face :D I might actually try that ;)

I agree with jesux too - Another tip is dont ware make-up or just not as much - i have never worn make-up a day in my life - for serious !! unless it was for a photo-shoot or soemthing.

i think make-up and alot of these products just clog your pores and add to the wrinke factor - like foundation so nasty !! never ever worn it...

I just use soap and water thats it !

Chooch-do you mind sharing the exercises? 3-0 is just around the corner for me and I'm starting to think I should be more on top of these things.

sure thing...i'll get the book's name from home that i sometimes use.

Jo...i've heard that there is conflicting results...but meh...believe it or not for me they seem to work. (and hey, where would the beauty and cosmetic surgery business be if it were all just that easy!!)

there has been a recent publication released by a gentleman who practices facial qui-gong. (he was on breakfast TV one morning) and his results were pretty convincing! :) (i'll try to find this title by tomorrow too!

Yeah, I was trying to google that guy's name, because I saw him on BT that morning - apparently he's got a lot of success and he definitely looked pretty damn young.

What was that guy's name... hmmmm

The only way to prevent wrinkles/lines is to stay out of the sun and not change your facial expressions. The results of anti-wrinkle creams are disputable. There are a few ingredients that have been shown to have some effect, but none of them are miracle cures.

I have had lines around my eyes since I was about 20. Mine are more noticeable when I wear foundation. I occasionally use a Neutrogena eye cream, but I usually forget most nights.

I always thought the ones on my mom beside her eyes made her look pretty :)

FACIAL EXERCISES – A NEW TREND IN NON-SURGICAL FACIAL TONING - By Zhana Dragicevich

There is a moment in everyone’s life, when you notice for the first time, (it may be for some around your 35th birthday), wrinkles and sagginess on your face. These may appear as a result of stress-filled days, good and bad personal experiences, genetics and a host of other factors influencing your life.

At first, looking from different angles in the mirror you think, perhaps you can do something about it. Well, anti-aging creams definitely improve the texture of the skin through quality moisturizing and fight against damaging UV rays together with regular beautician visits. What about droopy cheeks, dull skin color and a baggy looking jaw-line? You try to recall all the solutions offered on TV infomercials and magazine advertisements, thinking what is the best possible answer for fighting these aging signs appearing on your face?

The explanations offered by experts are pointing to different factors causing your skin to age:
- free radicals, highly reactive molecules created by factors like smoking and UV rays that damage skin cells, specially visible around eyes and lips
- insufficient intake of fresh fruit and vegetables that contain vitamins and minerals necessary for skin regeneration and rejuvenation (vitamins C, A and E)
- depleted collagen and weaken muscles causing skin to sag
- genetic predisposition

Now, what is available? For people who don’t believe in aging gracefully, there are few options:

- Paying a visit to a reputable plastic surgeons practice. This may be a solution for those with a readily disposable income, but for the majority perhaps this would not be an option.
- Botox injections, applied to small muscles underlying visible lines every three to six months, temporarily paralyzes the muscles, smoothing out the skin above
- Boost collagen production with non-ablative lasers that help stimulate collagen production in the dermis

Or, FACIAL EXERCISES, a new approach that is more and more appealing to those who are looking for a natural, inexpensive and non-invasive way to improve facial appearance. Several programs have been known in the last 30 years ranging from educational books, different devices and the advocates of facial exercises agree, if you stick with them, the results will pay off. Massage and facial exercises are a maintenance regimen for stimulating muscles and keeping the skin in place.

Ayurveda, an ancient Indian science, uses massage and facial exercises as a key to delay the aging process and help prevent wrinkles.

What benefits or initial improvements would you notice or gain using this method for facial aging prevention? The improvement in color and tautness in your skin is expected between 3-4 weeks based on everyday facial workout. An overall fresher and youthful look gradually comes within 3 months. Facial exercises are painless and easy to learn, working the same way we exercise our body muscles. The benefit that is gained by exercising the facial muscles, is improving skin tone, strengthening underlying muscle structure which in turn supports our facial skin and keeps it taut and supple.

According to the Washington Post, an exciting trend is taking place where facial exercises have become popular in USA. Fitness clubs in Manhattan, Washington D.C., Pittsburg, Boston and other places across the United States are now joining in the fashion of offering facial exercise classes. These are likened to aerobic classes for the face.

Some exercises are done by using the fingers to provide the resistance. The Australian company Oris Vista Pty Ltd , has developed a new innovative product that eliminates the overstretching of facial skin by using a ball to provide the resistance. Five short, but effective exercises, combined with the Oris Vista Face Exercise Ball are all that are needed to enable our facial muscles to have a complete workout. Oris Vista Face Exercise Ball with facial exercises instructions and anti-aging aromatherapy oil blend is available to order via www.faceexerciseball.com . The website also offers FREE BEAUTY TIPS AND RECIPES FROM YOUR OWN KITCHEN



LOL...a faceexerciseball!
