I'm only 20 years old and I have fine lines, bags under my eyes, loose skin and a deep wrinkle forming.

However, it seems sleep/water temporarily helps.

if i use a wrinkle cream now and continue using forever will my skin be saved? Can i get rid of those fine lines etc since I am young and I'm still making collagen etc?

What creams/serums can i use are cheap?

I was thinking of this.

Cade Youth Concentrate | Moisturizer | 1.7 oz | L’Occitane USA

It's good to start an anti-aging skin routine in your twenties. Don't wait to get them to start using products.
I've been using an SPF moisturizer every day since I was 15.
At 25 I started using under eye creams for fine lines and bags (I have insomnia). Another thing to keep in mind is to wear sunglasses because squinting from the sun adds to the lines.

I'm 27 now and people think I'm around 21.

What I use:

- Neutrogena Visibly Even daily moisturizer SPF 30
- L'Oreal Dermo-Expertise eye defense (works really well but not quite as well as Dior's Capture Totale multi-perfection creme but it cost $125).

Other than that it's just good diet and exercise, and drink lots of water.

I don't know about the wrinkle creams but I would suggest using anti-aging products.

Find a beauty regime that works, get enough sleep and exercise, and eat a balanced diet. When I was your age, I used Merle Norman and then Clinique. I don't think it matters too much which one you use, just find one that works well for your skin. If you are really concerned, consult a dermatologist, but I would first try a skin care line.

I agree with all of the above, as well. Taking care of one's skin involves finding the proper skin care line as well as a healthy lifestyle.
Clinique is a good brand; hypo-allergenic, which is great for sensitive skin (the eye area is particularly sensitive in most women) and they don't test on animals.
I recently switched to Aquaphor at night. It was actually rec'd for the eyes in InStyle. I had always used it on my hands but I decided to try it. I really like it, especially b/c there is still a little remaining in the morning, which provides a nice base for daytime eye cream. However, it is petroleum based, which some people find icky (but which is the BEST moisturizer).

I was constantly waking up in the am with bags under my eyes. Have been using Roc which is ok.
The biggest help I've found is to stop sleeping on my stomach with my face squished into the pillow. My under eye bags are pretty much gone!

Do you smoke/drink? Do you tan? How is your diet? You should not be having wrinkles at this young of an age.Especially deep wrinkles. I would go to the derm and ask if you have evidence of extreme skin damage from cold or sun. And maybe get a check up at the doctors too.

I'm a guy btw.

Well some good news. I have been getting more sleep over the past few days. The bags/under eyes wrinkles have started to go away although slowly. Hopefully more sleep/water will help. I probably don't get enough of both.


I don't tan. My natural skin color is a light brown.

If there is sun damage am I young enough to reverse it?

I would check with a derm. but I would think so. If you're still young your skin will shed it's dead skin easily, just make sure you exfoliate to prevent any dead cell build ups.

Same suggestions. And no, it doesn't get worse if you think about it. haha Unless you squint and scrunch of your face when you do it, then yeah, you do it enough times and it will make it worse.
