At what age would you use anti-wrinkle cream?

I'm still young, but am noticing creases in my forhead and around my eye just a little. Im only 26 so it seems silly to use a nightly cream for wrinkles. Is it good for me to start young or is it needless chemicals on my skin? Maybe I should stick to a good moisturizer or something. I did buy some olay night time rejuvinating wrinkle cream, but after reading the jar it sounds like it is for...more than small lines.

  • I stopped using soaps in my 30's on my face. I use cold cream or a non foaming cleanser. My grandmother taught me that makeup goes on better with moisturizer. So from the time I started wearing foundation I have moisturized. I believe that was around 14. I am 43 and so far no wrinkles. Thank you Gramma!!!

  • I started using Olay back at 18. I like to think now that I'm approaching 38 I look younger. I do have some winkles forming but most people say I don't look my age.

  • Oil of olay regenerist was featured on an episode of Oprah where several dermotologists busted what works and what is a waste of money. This was their number one favorite cream and recomended it as a corrective and preventative cream. Hey if the worlds leading dermotologists recomeend it ,it must work.

  • It is NEVER to early to start using wrinkle creams.  No cream in the world will make existing wrinkles go away but using a good cream every day will help prevent them from occurring in the first place.

    Tip:  Get a day cream with sunscreen.  All the skin care experts agree that your single biggest defence against aging skin is sunscreen.
