I'm 23 and have noticed a couple fine lines under my eyes (probably due to squinting a lot due to poor eye sight).
Should I be using eye creams yet?
Is it true that if i start using eye creams for wrinkles now, then if i am 50, these creams won't work as well?

I don't think there is an "age" threshold, as soon as lines start appearing then the longer you leave them the deeper they will set.

If you start using an eye cream targeted for wrinkles, not just general moisturising, then I'd say that by the time you're 50 you'll have less wrinkles than your peers.

I agree with miranets.
However, a beauty counter SA told me that if you use products for mature skin then its likely that by the time you are old, there wont be other products/ingredients that will work for your skin. But then to argue this point, by the time you are old and wrinkly, there must be another doctor or scientist that has invented/discovered another miracle ingredient.

I have been using eye creams/gels for a couple of years now (Im 21). I usually purchase eye creams to brighten the eye area, not for wrinkles. But I sometimes use anti-wrinkle eye creams too when my eye area looks crepey.

yeah I agree that anti wrinkles products should be use at a young age. You are trying to prevent wrinkles. It'll be too late if u use those products when wrinkles are already there. It's always better to prevent than cure in my opinion. Very Happy

i would use it. i don't think the anti-wrinkle and anti-aging products today work really well, especially when you have lines already. so i use it earlier in hopes that maybe it can help delay them Laughing

Yes! Certainly I'd use an eye cream, but I'd stay away from anything too rich and I don't think you need a heavy-duty anti-wrinkle eye cream yet.

I like PSF's Phytolift as it has anti-wrinkle ingredients, anti-oxidanta and is a gel-base, so it's not rich (I find rich eye creams give me milia). I'm sure there's other eye creams/gels that people here can also recommend to you.

I don't think it is ever too late to prevent aging. Start with sunblock and vitamin C.

Eye cream is essential, not necessarily mean cream "designed"for the eye area but meaning you do have to moisture your eye area even though you dont feel the need to moisturize the rest of your face.

I think it depends on the product. If it contains ingredients that can have some side effects (e.g. retinoids/retinol and increased sensitivity), you will have to be careful. Using sunscreen daily is important for prevention since the sun is the NO. 1 factor in skin aging.
