Seriously How is this possible?!?! lol

I look in the mirror and notice I am starting to get some fine lines, great I am in my late 20's. Well how is it possible to get pimples and wrinkles??? Shouldn't I have grown out of that "pimple stage" by now? I don't have serious break outs or anything one here and there but c'mon, how do you battle both, one is youth related and one is getting older related. lol

  • I hear you! When do the "good years" start? I'm in my late 30's, I have itsy bitsy lines underneath my lower eyelashes and breakouts all over my chin :-) I deal with the lines by using vitamin E oil (I got it at dollar general) and dab it under my eyes and along my top lip line at night (just in case). I picked up toner to fix my breakouts and they only got worse, so now I just mix a teaspoon of sugar in with my acne wash and use it as a facial scrub - almost completely cleared up in 3 days now.

  • The pimples are caused by hormonal changes... At least for me anyway... About a week out of the month I have a breakout on my chin... I make sure I use a good moisturizer after shower and at bedtime.. Cold packs on my eyes when needed... I'm 36 so I think its in the genes as well, my mom aged quicker than my dad so I'm hoping I have my dads genes,lolol

  • Me too! I just turned 29 and have never thought I looked old until now. I'm getting wrinkles and breaking out (like huge, deep, pimples) on my chin. I've never had probelms with this before! I guess we better just face it, we are getting old! :0)

  • I get a few pimples on my forehead and have a big wrinkle near my lip and around my eyes. I'm only 29. I don't want wrinkles yet!

  • Sorry ladies, but you have no idea how much better I feel knowing I am not alone on this war against pimples and wrinkles lol. I have the Acne Free stuff, but it dried my face out too much. I just the toner and that is it. It works good though. Anyone use Vitamin E cream? I have been trying this but I am thinking it might be leading the the breakouts....
