Fine lines at 18?!

  1. Hi everyone! I've recently noticed that I have very, very fine lines under my eyes. I've been using eye cream since I was 16 and I use sunscreen religiously, wear sunglasses, stay out of the sun, drink plenty of water, eat well, etc, so I am a bit annoyed that they are popping up this early. I don't think it is genetics. Any advice?
     
  2. Oh no! Hmm, it sounds like you take good care of your skin. Unfortunately, it might just be a result of your skin-type and/or genetics. My friend's facialist actually told her not to use firming or anti-wrinkle creams until she is older (maybe in her 30's or 40's? We are both 23), as those creams encourage your cells to turn over more quickly. If you use those creams on young skin, your skin's cells will become dependent on the cream for turnover stimulation and won't do it themselves!
     
  3. Thanks for replying, etagaya. The creams I use aren't so much anti-aging, although maybe the sunscreen is a bit drying. Hopefully it's just lack of sleep or something.
