Wrinkles around the eyes

Hi Mads,

I’m a 21 year old woman, who’s a bit concerned about getting wrinkles around the eyes. I have a lot of smile lines and in time they have started to appear more clearly – is there a crème or some sort of cure for it? And which face crème would you recommend for someone like me, I have ordinary skin, which is neither greasy nor dry. I would like a moisturizer, which is also protecting against the sun.

Thanks in advance 🙂

Hi – and thank you very much for your question for me, which I would be happy to answer.

Wrinkles have almost become a dirty word – personally, I think that wrinkles tell of experiences and can be very charming. Just look at all of the “frozen” Hollywood faces – they are completely unnatural to watch.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for wrinkles – then there is only botox and surgery – but there is a lot that you can do to lessen the number of wrinkles with skincare. It is important to cleanse your face in the morning and evening with a mild cleansing product to remove dirt from the skin – and then apply a good crème filled with vitamins and minerals, which will actively help to maintain the skin. Also, you should always make sure to use a day crème with sun screen, because the sun is one of the main causes for wrinkles – you should also make sure that your day crème contains both a UVA and UVB sun filter.

Regarding crèmes, Danish Skin Care can recommend crèmes for normal skin, you can use them all over your face including around the eyes. And so, you will not need extra products like eye crèmes, which is really a needless product. There is no difference in the care that your eyes need compared to the rest of your face.

And finally, remember to protect yourself from the sun – use sunglasses often to avoid squinting your eyes. Go in the shade when the sun is at its strongest in the middle of the day.
