I'm 50 and I have wrinkles. I don't like it, but I accept that it's caused by spending my life out in the California sun...which overall has been totally worth it...and my genetics. My dad and grandma had exactly the same wrinkles in the same places, I can't fight it. I also can't be sorry that those same genetics have made me effortlessly thin. If my face was all plumped out, it wouldn't match the rest of my body. You can't have everything.

I don't know if I'd call it "worrying," but I started being aware of taking care of my skin & protecting against wrinkles when I was in my early 20s, I think.

I'm now 65. I have some wrinkles, but not many. My problem is mainly sagging from my chubby cheeks, resulting in nasolabial folds, which aren't wrinkles...and my neck loss of elasticity. I wish I'd been more aware of that, so I could have protected somewhat against that. Firming creams, holding my head higher, whatever.

The California sun is worth it.....just be sure to use a moisturizing sunscreen.........

No, it isn’t. If you want to stave off wrinkles or age spots, dermatologists recommend starting with a mild retinol in your mid 20’s.

I still don't have "wrinkles," but I'm getting jowly and saggy. I'd take wrinkled skin on a firm face any day!

No wrinkles yet. I'm 79 so maybe they'll start showing up soon. I got lucky with good skin, and my hair didn't turn gray, but a nice platinum shade. Thanks, Mom!

I still don't "worry" about them, and I'm 60. I really don't have any wrinkles, but that's probably because I'm a bit fluffy.

I’m in my late 40s and I really don’t worry. I don’t have wrinkles on my face at all, I barely have crow’s feet (I’ve see 20 year olds with worse ones). But I’m getting turkey neck (I can see it if I hold my head at certain angels). I lost a lot of weight (on purpose and I’m now at a healthy BMI) over the past few years and I think that’s why I have it. It’s a good trade off.

I don’t worry about it though. After all, unless I look in a mirror, I can’t see it. I don’t care what others think about how I look (if I did, I’d wear makeup and such). What I “worry” about is colon cancer since it runs in my family and I had precancerous polyps removed. That could kill me. Turkey neck and wrinkles won’t.

We're blessed with good genes in my family in that we rarely wrinkle. I only started using moisturizer regularly around age 55.
