I'm in my mid 20s and already notice some small lines under my eyes. Is this normal at my age? I mean I see other people my age with actual wrinkles, so I guess I shouldn't complain, but I feel like this is too early.

I don't believe in putting a bunch of creams on my face, because I have noticed that the more you do that, the worse things get. I am trying rose hip oil, but I don't believe it has made a difference. Also, I started drinking powdered collagen, but it might be making me sick for some reason.

I stay out of the sun, barely ever drink, have a very good diet, am a perfect weight, so as far as those things go, I'm ok.

But I just don't know what I could do directly to make the lines from worsening. And is it reversible at all?

Fine lines under eyes at your age are probably from very dry skin in that area. Are you using a good under eye cream? Try Shiseido eye creams, I think they are the best to fight under eye dryness.

You must keep the skin under eyes very lubricated and supple. Use oils or creams there and no powders which are drying. Your 20s does sound a little young for lines there, but as you said I have seen people in their 20s with deep forehead lines and wrinkles already, a lot of it is genetics.

I got in the habit of putting eye cream on since I was 14 years old and it has worked. I am now late 30's. I got a free sample back then and been using eye creams since then. I have very little wrinkles around my eyes. That, and I don't smile a lot (natural BRF face) helps.

I would suggest to start using it NOW. Also, try face yoga. Just started it too for my nasolabial folds. It seems to work, but like regular exercise, it will go away if I don't keep up.

This is what I've been using for the last couple of years.

Creams will Not make it worse!!! Staying out of the sun is the most important thing you'll do...sunscreen, too.

Some lines are simply genetic...the way you smile or frown or chew.....whatever....

And if you're looking at yourself in a magnifying mirror....STOP!

Make sure you wear a face moisturizer - for the daytime I like Neutrogena or Aveeno both are lightweight. Also make sure to wear a hat or visor when out in the sun with sunglasses if you can wear dark sunglasses. I use to wear a light tint sunglasses and was squinting so I switch to dark for bright sunny days and it's so nice no more squinting.

Get some 25% TCA acid off of amazon & do a couple of peels.

It's common as it also depends on the type of the skin.. By having fresh juice of carrot can also reduce that

I think sometimes we look for things and maybe your wee lines are actually really laughter lines and nothing to worry about... you seem very young to be developing lines on your face.. a little moisturiser at night might help. usually being as young as you things repair fast if caused by illness, crying or diet..
