There are a lot of products that help, the trouble is you have to try so many before you find one that works for you.

The only product I've heard that can help with fine lines and wrinkles (over time) is RetinA or retinol. However, it sounds like you're talking about a vertical line between the brows - I've always heard them referred to as "eleven lines" - because people often develop a couple of them together. They really aren't a wrinkle so much as a deep crease. I have those too, and mine became more noticeable as I've lost weight and my face is no longer as full as it used to be. My understanding is that Botox is the only product that can reduce the appearance of that crease but as you said it has to be done every few months because it is a temporary solution. What I hate about my elevens is that they make me look angry...and I'm not an angry person, LOL!

i seen a advertisement for hydroxytone and bella plex......at the time they were giving free 2 month trial samples for only $2 shipping fee....... i thought i'll give them a try.....been using them for 2 weeks now and my wrinkles have got shallower......have see what happens when i finish the creams
I like Peter Thomas Roth Unwrinkle products. I see a difference but they are expensive & you have to keep using it. To me the best is the main one - Unwrinkle

LOL, my Fiance tries to remind me not to furrow my brow, but yes when I even just mentioned Botox to him he was like:what?!
I forgot to thank yo for the advice to stay out of the sun, wear sunscreen- I never was a sun worshipper, I am extremely fair skinned and burn easily so I have worn sunscreen or makeup with sunscreen since a young age. I love water too, and you are right it is so important for healthy skin.
I am hoping someone will have a recommendation for me of something that worked for them, we'll see if I do use something and it works, I'll be sure to share the info with everyone. Lisa
My guess is your husband-to-be loves your accidentally serious look. Congratulations on your upcoming nuptuals! I do hope you're able to find something that works well for you. What about one of those plumping serums? It's worth a shot!

I won't call you a Hippy, unless you like that term. :)
I am glad to hear you were blessed with good genes! I unfortunately still get blemishes and can't put any vaseline or oils on my face. My dermatolist said Oil doesn't hydrate skin cells, water based hydraters do (like putting a grape in oil, you just get an oily grape)
I had cystic acne when I was 19 and have horrible red and brown scars on my face. I always wear concealer and foundation!
The reason I want to repair that 1 deep wrinkle is because I am gettind married in May, and I'd love my photos to look great without retouching.
If anyone has used anything that has lessened the look of lines, please let me know!
Very true, KittyKat. If you look at MamiSheli53's page, you can see very clearly that she does NOT look like she's going to be 60 this coming July. That is my mother. That's a lot of where I get my complexion from-even though I think I'm considerably paler.
i have been using oil of olay for sensitive skin for years and i like it; although genetics no doubt plays a part in the anti-wrinkling.

Hi, Lisa !
As others have noted, there really aren't any creams that will eliminate wrinkles. If there was, the cosmetics industry would be out of business. ;)
One thing you can do to reduce the risk of getting further wrinkles to make sure you wear a hat outside or at least some sunscreen. Being out in the sun too long can really age the skin. Do you smoke ? Smoking is another thing that ages the skin and causes wrinkles. So, if you smoke, you should consider quitting. that will help your skin enormously. My uncle was a pack a day smoker. I remember seeing him one morning and was shocked at how dried out his skin looked. It looked like parchment. Well, his doctor finally got him to quit smoking. When I saw him a few months later, his skin was much rosier and healthy looking. it was a huge improvement.
Do you drink enough water ? If not, drinking more water will help keep your skin hydrated and "plump". When your skin dehydrates, it dries out thus making any wrinkles look worse. Do make sure you're drinking plenty of water.
My mom always had good skin, part of that is genetics. If the women in your family are prone to early wrinkles, you might just be out of luck. However, my mom did use Vaseline on her face before going to bed. Many women, back in the day, did that. Vaseline will keep your skin moist and hydrated. Just a little dab is all you'd need.
Now, I have read some studies that said that products that contain Retin A have helped some people reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. there are over the counter products that contain Retin A and you could have a dermatologist prescribe a higher dosage Retin A cream. It might help, but be aware it might not too.

Most creams and lotions, even the expensive Brand name ones mostly hydrate the skin keeping moisture in so skin looks plumper and wrinkles less noticable..a humidifier either free standing or attached to your furnace will help keep skin hydrated on the surface and even make your hair feel and look fuller. No cream will erase wrinkles, only a cosmetic procedure by a professional can do that.

I am of a different bent and figure the lines are generally a result of being survivors.
I'd not pay anyone to "remove" the lines with botox or anything else.
Creams work if one fills in the lines like putty in a wall.

i have the same crease...on the left side. My mom has it as well but mine is deeper. i think it got worse when I was heavy and now that I lost weight it really shows up with the looser skin. I will keep checking back to see what others say
Call me a hippy or whatever, but I have come to accept that wrinkles are JUST a part of life. If it weren't for my s/o, I would have a buzz cut and would not dye my hair. As it is, I don't wear make-up, and haven't consistently worn it for more than 10 years. I used to, but my kids father says he prefers me without it, because I do have a good complexion. The best way to keep your skin looking young is drinking enough water, eating right 80% of the time, and using a good moisturizer and something with at least spf 15 if you're outdoors a lot. Wash your face with a mild soap and warm water. You want a good moisturizer? Vaseline Cocoa butter lotion, Palmer's cocoa butter lotion, Queen Helene cocoa butter lotion...and at night, a thin layer of just vaseline or cocoa butter. Yes. That is it. The beauty industry plays on our insecurities and bleeds us dry. It so is NOT necessary! I PROMISE you. You see my profile pic? Absolutely NO make-up. I do get blemishes every now and then, but nothing that can't be cured with time.

Anyone use an anti wrinkle cream that really made a noticeable improvement?
I have a frown line between my eyebrows. The dermatologist is recommending BOTOX, but I wonder if thats just for the $200?! (and I'd have to go every 3-4 months!)
I'd like something that will help smooth it out, any suggestions? Something you've tried and seen results.
