I’m 36 and I feel like all of a sudden I’m really showing my age. Especially around my eyes. The lines are bothering me. What’s the best eye cream to help with smile lines around the eyes??

Yeah get back to me when you're 50. I don't know a good eye cream. I just say I earned these lines and move on.

How can you be old at 36 when I'm not old at 53?

I moisturize my face morning and night and have very few lines or wrinkles. I use Ponds.

The best skin care is sun screen.  Every day, 375 days a year.  Sun is what does the most damage.

I am way past 36 and have used a face lotion/sun screen since my teens on my face, hands and throat.  In the summer months I make sure to do my whole body as well.  People tell me all the time I have nice skin and are surprised at my age.  

Also - get plenty of sleep and drink lots of water.  

Here are some "repair" products that have good reviews:

That doesn’t mean I have to like the wrinkles.

Sunscreen and moisturizer.  If you are already looking old at 36 you probably havent been kind to your skin and the damage is done.

The rest of my face is good. I just have “squint” or “smile” lines around my eyes.
