Any good creams (day, night) to help prevent worsening? This is for Caucasian skin. Thanks!

Wash with an oil free cream cleanser instead of a sudsy one in addition to protecting it from further sun damage and add big sunglasses with UV filters to cover the eye area. If you wear makeup and use moisturizer it may be time for a product overhaul. Look at what you consume too. (smoking, drinking, unhealthy foods - cut it off)

Trial and error with skin creams test time! They won't prevent it from worsening but they will get rid of dead dull skin surfaces and hydrate the existing wrinkles so they don't look so deep.

Sunscreen, sunglasses, staying out of the sun, and steering clear of smoky environments are going to help more than any topical agent after the fact. Damage is damage, and what's done is done, for the most part.

If it's already damaged, you can't reverse it. Sorry.

That's not necessarily true. Skin that ages looses collagen. Depending on how long it has been that way, you can work to restore collagen. Proper diet, hydration, Sun coverage, those can help. There are products from your dermatologist which can stimulate collagen. There is also redlight therapy which has been proven to regenerate collagen. If you have a dermatologist, seek their advice. Wrinkles are one thing, they can be lessened, but thin skin...it can be helped, usually.

You can't completely reverse it but you can improve upon it. you will have to see a dermatologist. I've been using Tazorac cream which is a retin a cream that is supposed to help repair sun damage. I don't know if it's safe around the eyes. I've been using it on my face. Oh and the cream is only available by prescription.

SEE, others know a dermatologist can probably help you out. Ask them about redlight therapy. Most dermatologists are doing this in office now.

Improving isn't reversing. Retin A creams only do so much, and that's not a whole lot. Sorry, just stating the facts... we're all screwed in the end, so we all must get used to it.

That's what I said. I said you can't completely reverse it. However there are options. If money isn't an issue then an eyelift should do the trick.
