    Try eating more protein. Lack of protein in your diet causes premature wrinkles and thinning hair.

      Yes, if you do your research, you can do just a "tiny" bit of botox in the crow's feet area. I'm 34 and don't have the slightest wrinkle. However, the cheapest I've seen it is $10 per unit. So if a nurse is doing it (vs. dr.), she doesn't have the incentive to inject tons of botox in your face that you don't need. Stay away from charging per "area". Because if they charge per unit, you can walk out of the office paying less then $200. It ends up costing less then face cream, and a wrinkle free face:) No one can tell you did anything and it serves as a preventative measure.

        I have them too! even though my friends say they don't see what I'm talking about, it would be nice to have a refresher. luckily, I had to go to the dermotologist anyways and he said the prescription he gave me would actually help out with some of the crows feet (I think I have them from playing sports in the sun when I was younger and not wearing sunscreen....)
        anyways, the stuff he gave me made my face peel and it looks like around my eyes look fresher!

          Yeah, moisturizing around the eyes does stop the wrinkles. I got into the habit of moisturizing in the morning and at night since my teens. I'm 30 now and wrinkles at the corner of my eyes.

            I use ROc products that are ok, but FI works with a Dermatologist, and his big suggestion is Retin-A. I mix it with my eye cream for a few days a few times a month (not too close to the eye) and my crows feet are almost non existent. You have to be very careful with it as it can make your skin burn and peel.

              I would recommend going to a Dermatologist or find a good medi-spa where you can get a consult soon - I started going to one about 3-4 months before my wedding and got a whole skin care regimen - it's called Obagi but they'll look at your skin and tell you what's best - I think it made a world of difference - it was pretty expensive but definitely was worth it. Everyone kept telling me how great my skin looked at the wedding and wanted to know what I did.
              If you're thinking about Botox, I think you should only get it from a doctor - they study the face muscles for years and Botox is an art - if someone injects the wrong amount or in the wrong place, your face can be uneven or they may over-do it. Personally, I would want the most trained person possible injecting my face - but probably several months before your wedding is not the best time to do it. The effects of Botox only last 3-4 months (maybe a little longer)..
              I've also used Oil of Olay Regenerist Eye-pods and I used to love those..

Anyways, I would really love to hear some feedback on wrinkle cream--even if it's just what NOT to use--after all, anti-aging stuff is expensive, so I'd love to hear what to avoid too!
                  I saw that on Dr. Oz yesterday too.. they said it was good for an OTC cream. Check out this website:

                  Paula's Books: Paula's Choice Skin Care & Cosmetics

                  Paula Begoun researches every cream, make up product etc.. She's the one who writes the books "Don't go to the make-up counter without me" etc...
