This was triggered by another mylotter when she made a post about her face and skin. Well, i was never one bothered with my face. Back in my teens i do not even put any cream or whatsoever on it as long as i washed it with mild soap..and even till i had my first daughter. Till now - working and i noticed how lovely my officemate's faces are - or maybe those are just layers of foundation. lol I could never tell the difference since i am not also one who loves to wear such. My husband and i are into this business lately and some products of the business are facial products. He decided to give those to me and not sell it. He said i could try it if it is good. So i did, and as i was putting this "perfecting essence" cream on and followed by this night renewal cream... and as i was putting it into my face and looking at the mirror - i realized, i do have wrinkles on my forehead!!!! HORROR!! I actually do not care of it before but i realized i have and i told my husband this one and he just laughed and told me, it is part of us "aging" but of course i want to age gracefully and i am still 26!! But he also said, we have gone through a lot more in life than other 26 year old. And i said yes you are right and he told me, it also does not matter he loves me nonetheless. But really, i am a bit bothered by it now. lol and i cannot help but look at my friend's to see if they also have it hahaha and they of course have it...just covered by layers of foundation that is. I try to laugh more now than frown because it causes more wrinkles!

I use tomato and brown sugar as face pack,it's a bit messy. Avocado is good,but too expensive here and my son won't allow me because he loves avocado,he would rather eat it than giving it to me Every day i scrub my face with lime (but sometimes i feel too lazy i forgot hehehe) and leave it there for few minutes. For starter,its kind of little irritation and pain due to acid,so you can rinse it off after you scrub. then after days,you will get used to it and you can leave it for 3o mins while doing other things. You can also do this before going to bed,instead of using artificial cleaning liquid,use lime or lemon. Then,rinse off before sleeping. One big tomato and a teaspoon of brown sugar mixed well until sugar dissolve doesn't matter if not totally dissolved. You can apply it to your face then,slightly massaging in upward motion. You can feel its very cool and soothing. You can do this during weekends and leave it while having some nap.

I use home remedies too, that I've found online. For pimples I add crushed aspirin to my honey and cinnamon and sugar. I've added lemon and lime before, but keep in mind that they could dry out the skin if it is sensitive, and they also lighten the skin, which might help for brown spots but could also ruin a nice summer tan, so I avoid them in the summer. I find honey moisturizes while tightening, and it makes my face feel really bright and shiny. Add sugar to exfoliate, that brightens the skin too.

I only recently started worrying about my skin, and I'm just 17. I don't think I have any wrinkles, just tiny ones in my forehead, but those aren't a bother at all. I had a few pimples on my forehead that were really getting to me this past week, though, because of hormones. So while I was trying to get rid of those, I used a honey and cinnamon mixture and I noticed how tight and shiny and glowing my skin felt afterwards. I decided I would use some kind of facial mask for half an hour or so at least once a week, it's fun and relaxing, and it's also hopefully going to keep me young forever!

honestly, I'm almost the same with other girl in generally, scared of wrinkle.it's kind of paranoid to see many wrinkles in us, even it can happen naturally.for the woman, appereance is very important, so we're all try as perfect as possible to keep wrinkle away.just what you said that foundation can help, but I seldom to use foundation.I hear that consume many fruit and good suplemen can help, do you know about that?I'm not good in make up, so far I try to be natural

I am still young only 23 but this discussion provoked my interest. I think any heavy with years when it begins to change and to have wrinkles and sometimes not so visible. But I also think that if you take good care of your skin may slow down this process. However, we will not be young forever but we can do so wrinkles are soft and beautiful to make us more beautiful. It is important that we feel better. nice day!

I, like you, have never used all that crap on my face and all my life people have always guessed my age 10 years under what it really is. A couple of time i bought foundation put it on only to rush to the bathroom to wash it off. Then throw the stuff away. I have seen people who use all the stuff foundation and all. Ughhhhh!!! I dont know how they can do it. Many of them without all the hoe paint look older than their age. Probably from not allowing their skin to breath.

What, you got a wrinkle at 26? You are so young to have that. Yes, just put on a night cream that contains tretinoin. That fills up the wrinkle and more or less erases it since it is still a fine wrinkle. It also tightens the skin. But i think you are still too young to have wrinkles?

People will age, no one can defeat such process. So, no matter what beautiful you are while you are young, someday, you will develop faceful of wrinkles, and no any cosmetic products can cover it up. So, we have to confront it bravely. I hope that you can understand we will get old too.

I think i have triggered you to write about this discussion so i'd better participate! I developed wrinkles at an early age but it was sun damaged wrinkles. I'm very active in sports and i really love swimming when i was very young and as i've said in my discussion, i wasn't someone who was very conscious of my skin so sun screen never came to mind when i'm out playing volleyball under the scorching heat of the sun. And mind you, during the 80s and early 90s people were mindless about sunscreen unless the hit the beach or the swimming pool! Sunscreens were considered then as unnecessary expense. But looking back now i really do regret not investing on such. So now i never go out of the house not putting any sunscreen and i do the same to my son when he goes swimming. Don't want him to have that early wrinkles on his forehead!

Having wrinkles at that age is really a big horror. For me as a girl we should not forget to take good care of our skin. Try to see most Koreans or Korean actress, they already had pretty skins but still they find a way to maintain or even improve their skins especially on their face, that is why even when they are in their 30's some of them will be mistaken as teens. And we can't say that it's vanity because it's part of improving yourself. So i think it's not bad to moisturize our skin while we still young. Use moisturizer that's compatible on your skin type, hydrate yourself, avoid stressed environment cause it's a major trigger cause of wrinkles, proper diet, and makeup is not bad at all as long as it wont cause to look your face so heavy, and there are even makeup and moisturizer all into one. So have fun being pretty by trying new things.
