Any other girls in their late 20s/early 30s have deep wrinkles under their eyes?

I have had them under mine for as long as I can remember – even looking back at my school photo when I was 14 I had a huge wrinkle under one of my eyes! It seems every girl I meet my age or, sadly, OLDER than me, doesn’t have nearly as many wrinkles as I do under my eyes and I just DON’T GET IT.

I use nothing but natural products on my face (oils) and wear sunscreen and sunglasses EVERY DAY. I tick all the right boxes, what am I doing so wrong???

Do you have really fair skin? Most people with really fair skin - natural blonds & natural reds - start to wrinkle far earlier than everyone else.

Sounds like maybe genetics. It sounds like you're doing all the right things otherwise.

I don't see any mention of diet,smoking or medications? Most of the sun damage done (which is also 90% of the reason for wrinkling) occurs when you are a kid. A crease in your eye socket is not a wrinkle if you are talking about the natural fold under the eye.

I have the same thing although I'm a redhead who has smoked off and on. I also have horribly acne-prone skin which means I'm constantly using products to clear my acne and dry my skin. Now at 35, I have adult acne and wrinkles together. But I look most to my dad for the blame. He has deep laugh-lines when he smiles or laughs. I have the exact same lines. They look great on a handsome, distinguished looking 68 year old male, not so great on a 35 year old female.

Red - Have you tried Murad stuff? Its a lot less drying than most if it works for you. I usually can get away with using the drying ones unless I am having a terrible back to back breakout session then I mix the murad acne w/ the anti-age stuff from them

Hi Pitt ~

I have tried the Murad line and didn't see much improvement, but I do continue to use their acne spot treatment (can't remember the name, but I seem to recall it having a little sulfur in it). Right now I am trying to transition over to a line called PCA. My challenge is that while I'm acne-prone and starting to show my age, I also want to use products with limited harmful chemicals. The problem is that most of the more "natural" products are not non-comedogenic (SP?). PCA does not use parabens in most of their products, which is great. The problem is that each product is about $26 so I have to buy them over time vs. just purchasing the whole line at once.

There's do doubt genetics play a role. But I think one of the biggest things people ignore is nutrition. It's all about staying away from processed foods, sugar, & smoking and eating more fruits & vegatables.

Do you have allergies? It can cause undereye swelling/bags (allergic shiners) and ultimately wrinkles.

Sunscreen is often missed under the eyes. I guess your sunglasses should cover it.

How about moisturizing? It is one of the most dry areas.

I have no wrinkles (30s) and I use eye cream often. My face is also an oil slick.
