Dear Wrinkles, You Aren’t Welcome Here

Dear Wrinkles, You Aren’t Welcome Here


Have you ever done something that you should be really proud of but manage to deflate it with your own self-criticism? Last year, I assisted the McDonald’s PR team by contributing to a video to publicize a Happy Meal reading initiative. Only a handful of bloggers were asked to help and I was one of them. I was super proud and very excited.

Except for one thing… I couldn’t get past all my wrinkles. While my husband said they are expression lines, I see them as age lines. I hate it. As I explained when I shared about essential oils, I’m not a fan of looking older.

Wrinkles are a fact of life so using anti-aging products is important! See what started using.

I have always been very cautious about my skin, using minimal amounts of makeup and sunscreen whenever venturing outside. Unfortunately, I’m sill seeing signs of age. Maybe it’s because, you know, I’m getting older. Anti-aging products have been around for a while but even before that, I didn’t give much thought to how well my skin was aging. Wish I knew then what I know now…

Recently I received a sample of Ageless Derma Anit-Wrinkle Cream and was cautiously optimistic and cautiously skeptical. When it comes to miracle-in-a-bottle type products, I always am. Using the product daily underneath my makeup, I gradually noticed a change in my skin. Aside from feeling more hydrated, it seemed like the wrinkles weren’t as prominent. Actually, just a few days ago Miss K said “Mom, whatever you’re using for your wrinkles is WORKING!”

My intention was to show before and after pictures but I’m not a professional photographer and that just wasn’t happening. Trust me when I say that I noticed a change… and I’m my biggest critic. My skin feels softer and the wrinkles aren’t as defined. Even when I furrow my brow, I don’t notice them as much as I used to. If there’s something that can deplete your excitement about something fantastic, then it’s worth addressing.

If you’re open to the idea of trying anti-aging products, check out Ageless Derma. You can visit their website or follow theme on Facebook and Twitter.

    I’m really noticing more wrinkles making an appearance the last few years. It’s good to know that this helps.

  7. I hate wrinkles. They really do make me feel older.

  8. Jenn says:

    I’ve just recently started using sunscreen and moisturizer. I’ve always had great skin but ever since I hit my mid 30’s…ugh.

  9. I’ve been seeing more wrinkles and lines on my face than I’m willing to admit are there. It is really hard for me to admit I”m getting older. I’d love to try some of this cream out and see if it can help me look more like the age I feel.

  10. oh this look great. Let us know how you are liking it in a few months too!

  11. Pam says:

    I have started to notice my own “expression lines.” I need to try this product and see if I notice a difference like you did.

    I am not noticing wrinkles yet, but I know that I need to be aware of my skin right now. And be careful to treat it nice for the future!

  13. Summer always welcomes a few more wrinkles, this sounds like it would help.

  14. I am not familiar with this product! Thanks for the great post!

  15. I am the same way. I wear litttle make up and always wear sunscreen, but those darn wrinkles are still creeping in. I’ll be checking this out for sure.

  16. I am pretty blessed at 40 I am not seeing too many wrinkles on my face but I know soon I am going to have to start considering a cream, this sounds great!

  17. LauraOinAK says:

    I hate seeing wrinkles in my mirror, too. I’ll have to look into this.

  18. I have two or three tiny ones but nothing major. I’ve always thought that since I had oily skin I might get fewer wrinkles.

  19. I am starting to see a few lines under my eyes, there are so many great products out there. I am willing to try them all! I’ll have to look at this one!

  20. Thanks for sharing Nicole; Soo excited to hear that it really works.. I may need to give it a try soon, those little wrinkles are slowly starting to move in…
