Since we are approaching 30 (I refuse to turn 30! I'm 29 and holding), my friend asked about a good wrinkle cream. Aging happens right- no way around it! Even if I say I'm 29 forever. In my previous post I listed my basic skin care regimen, but thought I would be a little more detailed in this one pertaining to preventing wrinkles. Use an antioxidant cream. I mentioned it in my last post. Eucerine COQ10. Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least 30 SPF everyday. I like Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30. Put it on your face and Chest and hands (they age too). Korres brand has a sunblock stick for sensitive areas like the eyes and lips, but it's about $30. I just bought Shiseido Sun Protection Eye Cream 32, I love, love love it. It's the first eye sunscreen I have used that doesn't stingUse a retinoid The stronger ones are better but require a prescription. But many over the counter brands can still help lessen the appearance of lines. A good one is Roc brand Deep wrinkle night cream. I want to get a Chemical Peel from the Dermatologist someday soon. You can get mini at home Chemical Peels like Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel. There is a new product coming out in April I want to try called Aveeno Ageless Vitality. It's a line of products that use zinc and copper to produce charge that is supposed to stimulate the skin cells to make collagen or elastin. I'll let you know how it is when I try it. No one wants a wrinkled canvas!
