When did you all start noticing little fine lines and wrinkles on your face? I'm in my mid-twenties and it's definitely starting for me. I'm trying out the new StriVectin SD cream for wrinkles and stretch marks since I started working with the company and after about 4 weeks, it seems to be working. My skin looks and feels healthier and (hopefully not just in my mind) those lines I was starting to notice aren't as prominent.

Has anyone else tried StriVectin? What are the longer terms results like?

The best thing you can do for yourself is to wear sunscreen every singe day, no exceptions. Either a moisturizer with a high spf or perhaps makeup, whatever you choose, but do it.

Use sunscreen spf 60+. Go and get a prescription for tazorac cream. It is a retin a cream that was prescribed by my dermatologist. Also ask the dermatologist about photorejuvenation treatments.

Agree, best two things to keep wrinkles off the face are to protect yourself from the sun at an early age (sun damage shows 35 years after the fact) and don't ever smoke. Sunscreen is good year round but a hat in addition with a big floppy brim when outside for extended periods is even better. Hydrate/moisturize inside and out!

Protect myself from the sun and use Vaseline at night for a moisturizer. It works great! I'm fifty and hardly have anything but fine lines. Smoking is bad and I've never done it. That is probably part of it too.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I definitely need to remember to put sunscreen on everyday. I always remember to do so when I'm outside at the beach or something, but I don't always remember everyday.

Do no smoke cigarettes, eat a healthy diet avoiding soda & junk foods, go for a walk, bike ride, play a low impact sport, or garden, get at least 8 hours of sleep everyday, avoid to much sun by wearing a broad brim hat, limit alcohol intake and find time to nourish your soul with prayer often.

These are the thing that will go miles and miles toward a good healthy body that will age gently to not hide your natural beauty.

If you do ALL of these things you won't need any stinking skin creams to keep your skin young(er).

Botox > Strivectin.

ETA: And I have used Strivectin and like most good creams I think it helps with the skins texture, but not so much with fine lines. You're young, a little younger than me, and you'd be surprised at what a tiny amount of Botox can do for us with barely any lines...for cheaper than you think.
