What is the best face products to use to prevent wrinkles?

I'm 28 (almost 29 *gulp*), I'm starting to notice really fine lines aka the start of crows feet. Not a big deal, and Lord knows I'm not vain, heck, I'm not even the type of person that wears any makeup daily. Hairs almost always in a ponytail...I'm totally a tomboy that once in a while has a girly mood pass through. lol. I have decently sensitive skin, so I do have to watch out, but I'm just curious as to what is the best preventer...or something to slow them down. I know the typical "don't smoke and drink plenty of water", but, I want to know which face cream out there works. My mom is 44 (yeah, she had me pretty early in life) and her skin, well, it I would never say it to her, but, it just looks older. Her mom, is the same way. It's like the elasticity of the skin for the women of my family, just isn't good. So, anyone know anything for elasticity and/or wrinkles? I just want to slow the process, ya know.

  • Someone else will be able to give you lots more info...but making sure your moisturizer (MUST have moisture) has SPF in it. Dry skin and sun/tanning (even fake n bake) are the biggest cause of wrinkles to my knowledge. Thats why drinking and smoking (as you mentioned) are culprites because they dehydrate your skin.

  • My dermatologist told me I would be good with anything oil-free and WITH anti-oxidants - I guess those are really important. Oh and I always use a separate eye cream; I like the Arbonne Intelligence for my eyes. I tan and I have excema (very dry skin) and I seem to be doing okay in the wrinkles department. My advice would be not to be swayed by brand names or other moms that sell make-up (sorry, don't want to offend, just IMO). Make sure you cleanse & moisturize every day, SPF is great (and it doesn't stop you from tanning), steer clear of mineral oil and make sure your moisturizer contains anti-oxidants!

    Oh - one more thing - My doctor also told me that the #1 age prevention measure for inside & out is to take CoQ-10 supplements

  • I love Mary Kay. Im about your age and recently started feeling the same. It is very simple they have a 3in1 face wash and a moisturizer that work very well. I also like how it does not have a strong smell. You have the option of normal skin or oily skin. They also the eye cream you can use.

  • When my grandma died she was in her 80s. Her skin was beautiful. Her secret was Ponds cold cream, morning and night. I use it now and so does my daughter.
