    Loving Olay's Regenerist Daily 3 Point cream right now, it works brilliantly. Also Garnier Caffeine Eye Roll-on for the eyes.
    lol my mum uses that, but I doubt you have any wrinkles, you're only 17 :console:

    I'm 24, have wrinkles around my eyes and grey hair. I also still suffer from the left-overs of teenage skin and break out in spots it could be worse, I sometimes feel like starting a campaign about it being unfair having spots and wrinkles, It should be one or the other....

    Thank god I'm married now or it would seriously bother me lol.
    Married life...that's what old people do, how terrifying. :eek3: :afraid: :woo:

    Staying out of the sun as much as physically possible.
    That would be unhealthy. Even us pale folk need the sun it gives vitamin D. You're best off using sun screen as moisturiser like I do.

    I'm quite worried/paranoid about getting old, and specifically looking old. I am religious about keeping out of the sun to prevent premature skin ageing, and I spend quite a bit on anti-ageing products. I'm only 17. Am I alone in feeling like this?
    hahaha you pussy

    the amount of sun exposure you need to meet your daily vit D requirement is grossly overhyped. In fact, 10 minutes of weak British winter sun through clothes is more than enough (from what I've read).

    Still there's no need to use anti aging products at your age when normal moisturiser has just the same effect.

    This is ridiculous. Sunny weather is one of the best things in life! You can't avoid ageing by hiding in your room, but you can miss out on a lot of fun that way.

    I know.
    I often turn down offers to go out on 'outdoor' activities with friends because it's too sunny outside. And I had to promptly quit the Red Cross cos I refused to stand outside all day in the summer.

    I'm scared of aging, I don't wanna even think that some day I'll be 60, 70 and I don't want to see my wife/gf, who used to be so damn attractive in her 20s, 30s, 40s (hopefully), look that old either.

    Not physically.. well it's not something I had thought about. So far i'd say that i'm happiest now with my appearance than I ever have been.

    It's funny that this thread cropped up now. I was about to create one. I turn 23 years old tomorrow (9th February) and every time another birthday rolls around i'm feeling worse and worse about it. I actually hate kids and so far do not have plans to have any children of my own, and i've always really disliked people much younger than myself.

    I think what i'm realising now, as immature as it sounds, is that I'm jealous of them; I don't want to grow up, and even though i've had my "turn" and i'm hardly a decrepid old man, I still really get depressed at the thought that I am getting older.

    I think back to the kind of life I had at 16, 17 etc and I miss those times. All of the clubs that I went to when I'd just turned 18, I would feel quite old in now. And it's only going to get worse.

    I have no plans for my birthday tomorrow because I really don't want to celebrate the fact that i'm getting older, I hate it I really do.

    Sorry for the morbid post :s
