I am just happy to be growing older. It beats the alternative and I hope to be alive for a good many years yet. I don't have too many wrinkles on my face so that is the least of my worries. I suppose I should wear sunglasses more often when I am in the sun or driving because I tend to squint to see and I am sensitive to glare. If/when I lose the weight I need to lose, then I'm sure I will have some saggy skin and wrinkles... but i will worry about that tomorrow because that is not a reality yet!
Good info. I'm a side/stomach sleeper and I have noticed the last year or so (age 46) that I have developed a couple of wrinkles on my face about where the skin mushes up when I'm laying down. They used to totally fade after I was awake a few hours, but now they don't . I read somewhere a few years ago that Cary Grant used to sleep only on his back to minimize wrinkling. Not sure if it was true, but if so I guess he was on to something! I wish I could learn to sleep on my back but have not been able to break the habit. Even as a baby Mom said I would only sleep on my stomach or side. As I get older I find myself taking back every snarky comment I ever made about vain people worrying about wrinkles instead of more important things. Karma is a you know what! Wish I could afford a dermatologist :).
I was surprised that smiling versus frowning causes more wrinkles. After thinking about it, I can see why. Also, the last question about anti-wrinkle creams seemed like a trick question. I thought they were a temporary solution at best. So maybe I'll try and get in the habit of using a product everyday.
