Help for Under Eye Wrinkles?

I'm 35 and my face is really showing the signs of age. My face looks fine until I smile, then the wrinkles under my eyes are horrible. It's not just crowes feet, but under my eyes that's the worst. I've tried different eye creams, even the expensive ones like kinerase and DDF, but I'm not seeing much of an improvement. It feels like I'm wasting my money. Are there any inexpensive "procedures" or creams that can help with wrinkles around the eyes? I've been very diligent about wearing sunscreen for the past 15 years, but I think I was too late:(

What can I do next?

Lots of help out there! I'm 47 and have very few wrinkles under my eyes. I had advice from two grandmas who had very few wrinkles. Number one..I sleep on a satin pillow case...much less abbrasive on the hair and skin...you just glide. Also, I do not remove make up before bed...my grandmother said the more you aggravate that area the worst wrinkles will be, so I only clean under my eyes after the shower in the morning with a cream. I also use Preperation H sometimes if I'm puffy...nothing to be scared of...it is just a cream that tightens skin. I followed that advice but my sister didn't and she does have much more noticable wrinkles under her eyes...and she is 2 years younger!
I know some practitioners are using Botox in that area now as well. Good luck.

Hey K.!
I hear you girl!
I found that when we switched where we shopped, we litterally stopped the Aging clock as wel! No Lie! LOL
we went Chemical Free Lifestyle! with shopping mainly now with the wellness company. www.melaleuca.com
we got all the toxic yucky stuff outta our life. and learned things like aging comes from with in. and its From Free Radical Damage! we learned this is the 9th grade remember... LOL!
and the only way to prevent free radical damage is to be on top of your antioxidents intake! and the ONLY way your gonna get that is threw suplimentation. Our bodies do NOT make minerals on their own, we have to take them orally. its Not in the food we eat. there is No other way. So we found that the Only vitamins and minerals that were actually Pattented to work, making them the Only ones manufactured that are Scientifically proven differnt then the rest! Thats now why we shop there exclusively! its Changed my health! I have graves disease. and its in FULL Remission, Natually Due to the Science in the Vitamins. I am Still amazed at this! I also lost over 40 ponds as a straight up SIDE Effect. I changed Nothign other then where we shoppped. WOW!
So aging is a total package. Not a Cream to put on and it goes away.
I have to say tho, the Nichole Miller Line is a Toxic Free Brand and the Timeless is Amazing! and More affordable then other cosmetic brands, and not yucky to use too!
If you or anyone wnats to know more. I dont sell stuff for melalauca, But i do shop the daylights outta theur store,. so I sure could talk about their brand all day.
So the point is to offer anyone the same educaton I got, for FREE< and also I am able to share my 40% discount with anyone who wants to try the store too! They dont mind if we do that.
Good Luck too!
Many Blessings!

K.,

I thought I should tell you about Beauticontrol products, they are sold by individual consultants like Mary Kay and I have found them very good. There are different at home spa type of products for microdermabrasion, chemical peels and whole skin maintenance and protection. They have worked wonders on my skin. You could probably find a consultant in your area online and look at their products online with a search for beauticontrol. Hope this helps! I'm sure you look fine!!!!

K.,
I apologize if I am repeating myself.....but have you tried Arbonne. It is a Swiss Formulated line that is botanically based with state of the art technology. I have seen fantastic results with it myself. If you are interested, I would be happy to send you samples. There is a $$$ back guarantee on everything we sell. If you don't get the results you are looking for, we want it back!! Let me know. Good luck with your search.

I might have your solution. e-mail me back and we will discuss about this

...i share the same problem...IT COULD BE WORSE if you were a FROWNER...JUST wear your lines proudly! and continue to invest in your reasons for smiles!!!

35 seems to be the age those things happen. :( I would suggest a couple of things. I am 54. I DO NOT go overboard on sunscreen as I believe there are toxins in the sunscreen itself. In the past I have used a cream called Immuderm. It is expensive, but I really saw some healing results. A little goes a long way. One tube has lasted me a year. I think it was about $80. Google it. Drink lots of water!! Your skin needs to be hydrated from inside too. Make sure you are getting plenty of Vitamin C. Be careful to be ery gentle when cleansing the eye area. That skin is very thin and fragile. Also, the way we age is sometimes hereditary. How does your Mom look? My Mom will be 80. She lifts weights, walks, goes to Curves and takes care of my Dad, who is not well. She pays attention to her diet and drinks LOTS of water. She looks great. She is definetely not looking 40, but not 80 either. My sister started selling Avon, so I am using that now. It is very nice and not expensive. One other thing, be careful how you sleep. If you are a side sleeper, you could be bunching up your face ALL NIGHT. Some people use a satin pillowcase to help with that. All the best to you!

Hi K.,

You definitely don't need a procedure. No one likes to look older than they are (unless you're under 21!). I have had great results with Arbonne products. You may have heard about it -- botanically based skin care, formulated in Switzerland and made in the US. The products really do work. I have had many compliments on my skin. I am now over 40 with very few wrinkles. And yes, I do sell the products to many satisfied customers. Mostly they use the NutriMinC RE9 anti-aging line.

What you consider "inexpensive?" We have a new line, FC5, that is less expensive than our anti-aging line and still very effective for the concerns you mention. I would be happy to send samples of either line. Please feel free to peruse my Web site at www.naturallysara.myarbonne.com, and contact me there with an address and I will send them along.

Keep up the sunscreen too. And wear a hat with a brim.
Best wishes,
S.

Hi K.! I have the same problem (AND I HATE IT!!) and was told that creams will not help, it's just herititary and the only thing that will work is surgery. What they do is like a mini little under-eye lift where they just remove a little skin and tighten it to get rid of the wrinkles. Surgery scares me though. I had tried botox, which looked horrible!, and do not recommend it for that area around your eyes. Also, a dermotologist or plastic surgeon can do a peel or the lazer treatments which will diminish the lines a bit on the wrinkles around the outside corners of your eye but that area is so delicate that I don't know how close they can get to your eye.
I'm torn on what to do also. I don't have the money to spend on expensive procedures, but in the long run, I think it will be so worth it!! I HATE how bad my wrinkles are around my eyes. I'm turning 40 this year and feel like it REALLY ages me. I can totally relate. Please let me know if you decide to do anything and how it turns out.
Good luck!

Hi K.
Have you heard of Rodan+Fields dermatology? They are the doctors that created Proactiv Solution (the acne product seen on infomercials). They have new products out to address other skin conditions, including an ANTI AGE line for wrinkles.
I have two girls 14mos apart and dark circles and eye wrinkles were creeping up fast. I used their Muli Function Eye cream and the circles are gone and the wrinkles diminished. I loved it so much I became a consultant so I could get the discount. The results are 100% satisfaction guarantee, so there is nothing to lose.

Hi K.,

My name is C. Laansoo. Got your email, sounds like you are a pretty tough critic on yourself, but I understand that everyone has body issues that they would like to change.

I actually own a business with a company called Arbonne International. Have you heard of it? It's a great Swiss 29 yr old health and wellness company. It sounds like you have tried a bunch of products, but if you were up to it. I could send you a sample of the anti-aging RE9 eye cream. It's fantastic. I love and say it's been working on overdrive since I had my kids (age 3 1/2 yrs old and 2 yrs old).

Arbonne products are botanically-based, vegan, no perfumes/dyes/waxes, dermatologist-tested etc. If that sounds good to you, I could put a sample of the eye cream in the mail for you. Just need an address to send it to. Have a great day! Take care. Talk to you soon. *C.

Hi K.,
I just have to share with you that Jordan Essentials has a fabulous face line that includes an eyecream and an age defying serum that is my personal favorite. All products are made in Nixa, MO and are natural based with NO harmful chemicals. Give it a try, I know you won't be disappointed.

I try to sleep on my back during the last part of the night to push the puffiness away (I also do crunches and rowing exercises each morning and that rids me of the face bloats as well).
I use Kinerase, Olay Regenerist Night Cream, and Bare Escentuals Prime Time under my makeup. Regenerist hydrates well. The Prime Time does smooth things out. Kinerase does reduce my dark spots a little.
I have also heard people using Preparation H to shrink the wrinkles - I'm too afraid to try that!

Hi! Try Avon. Avon has a couple creams that would be worth looking into. The Anew Clinical Eye Lift is regular $28 but on sale for $18. It has 2 parts - one goes on the upper eye area and the other under the eye. In the next few weeks a new product is coming out to help with crow's feet, but it sounds like the Clinical Eye Lift would be worth a try for you. Avon has a few different moisturizer products to help prevent future wrinkles for anywhere from $20 - $30.

Hi K.,

I just read your your question and I know how you feel. I am 35 also and the wrinkles kept coming. I actually use Botox and it works wonders. It's not that expensive and I think that you will love it! I go to a medical spa called Vixen it's located at Vandyke and Hall Rd. The nurse there is the greatest. Hope this helps.

Hello K., I just want to share with you what I have found to work with me, I have more then wrinkles lets say from having had a gastri by pass years back, so from extra skin and wrinkles, and scars from head to toe, I use a product that has taken my turkey neck, to nice smooth soft tight skin, LOVE IT.. Go to www.newmissy.itworks.net and look at the Defining Gel, you can use that twice a day, and they also have scar and stretch mark cream thats wonderful and all the products are made here in the USA, Grand Rapids actually, and NATURAL.. Feel free to e-mail me if you would like or have questions of any sort. ____@____.com
God Bless! M.

am going to direct you to my website so you can obtain
all the info you need on this fabulous product. I would love to offer you a Complimentary Facial so you can try
the Firming Eye Cream first hand. Mary Kay always said
women liked to try products before they buy. My website is
www.marykay.com/K.M.Henderson Let me know when you would
like that free facial. I would love to get your opinion.
Looking forward to hearing from you. K. Henderson
