Hello all! I'm 26 and have been noticing fine lines on my forehead...does anybody know of something that could help? I have no idea where to start. Thanks!

You want something that works? That is CHEAP? Seriously it might sound like a 'pitch' but I use St. Ive's "Timeless skin" collagen elastin moisturizer. It ACTUALLY has collagen AND elastin IN it. Also, the base is mineral oil(which, we know, helps to actually absorb the product into the skin instead of just sitting on the top layers). It smells light and fresh, the price is always affordable(no more than $5), and it's legit. It doesn't get much better than this stuff. Also, keep in mind: 1. Don't OVER exfoliate 2. Don't put soap on your face that isn't MEANT for your face 3. Check your ingredients! 4. drink plenty of water One more tip from me. I do small circles around my face and especially focus on trouble spots with my moisturizer(like a mini facial massage)this can also help relive stress :)

Wear sunscreen! This will help prevent your lines from increasing, or prevent more lines from forming! Also, I'm the same age, with the same problem, and I have been trying Murad's Time Release Retinol Concentrate for deep wrinkles. You just apply it only to where your wrinkles are (I have two tiny lines just beginning to form on my forehead.) After a couple of months I think it has started to show a slight difference. I never get any powder or foundation caked in my lines any more, so it actually must be helping right? I think sometimes it is hard to tell though on yourself.

I am 50 and can't necessarily tell you of any products that can help because I have tons of wrinkles all over my face. I never really listened when people told me how important it is to drink lots of water and use a good cleanser made specifically for your face. I am paying the price now. So, my suggestion is to be sure you drink lots of water, always use sunscreen and spend the extra money (even if you have to save a little at a time) to buy a good quality cleanser to use daily on your face and a good quality moisturizer.

I've been using Retin A for over a year and my skin looks better than it did 10 years ago. I buy mine from CVS and it's approximately $53 (insurance won't cover it) but a 45gram tube lasts 3-4 mos because you only need a very small amount. So it's actually pretty cheap if you think about it. It's also worth every penny. It gets rid of pimples practically overnight. I love it. The only other products I use are ROC. This brand is affordable and I've liked every product I've tried from them.

Use an SPF 30 moisturizer daily[that's right rain or shine]. At night time(some of these while good for your skin can make it sensitive to light so it is highly recommended/safer that you use them a night), you can use a moisturizer with retinol , hyaluronic acid , vitamin c , alpha/beta hydroxy acid(not necessarily all at once). I recommend MyChelle Dermaceuticals and Andalou Naturals. Wear hats covering your face often,sleep on your back,drink green tea and eat foods rich in antioxidants.

YAS! I can't stress wearing sunscreen enough! Even better is to avoid the sun's rays as much as possible. I've used a variety of products for several years, but truly believe that the sun is the #1 enemy to our skin. Even wearing sunglasses and a floppy hat helps. I've been invested in skincare since I was 17 (when I began college), and 20 years later I still get asked for ID if I buy alcohol. (Not bragging, just want to make the point!) Also, be careful with Retin A/retional products during the day. They work wonders but should be worn with caution if skin is prolonged to the sunlight.
