Do you think she'd thank me for it in 40 years??

She'll thank you if, instead of anti-wrinkle cream, you put sun-screen on her instead...

Yes I thought that - was thinking an anti-wrinkle cream with a sunscreen in it!!

You might as well start off young..prevention is better than cure smile

I used to work with a girl who started wearing anti wrinkle cream at the age of 16. She had amazing skin at 25. Yeah do it!

Yes, especially if she is a smiley baby - think of the smile lines!

If her smile lines are excessive, you could think about fillers?

Maybe some botox to be sure

If you really love her, you'd get her on the Botox ASAP. Prevention better than cure and all that.

Instead of fillers, Botox is an ideal preventative measure

Better safe than sorry.....Botox is the answer
If she can never move her face into an expression, then she will be safe from lines for far, far longer grin

You might want to start using some anti cellulite treatment on those bum dimples too.

Yes as by the toddler stage they start looking like pugs.

Lip fillers will be great too

My Mum started me moisturising when I was ten...I have good skin now...some of that is genetics and a LOT of it is that I was an anti social goth type who stayed out of the sun as a kid!

But fakebook doesn't every 25 year old have amazing skin? confused

what's wrong with natural wrinkles confused

sun damage of course i think should be avoided at all cost, but wrinkles are natural - it's what happens to skin <shrugs>

Not if they don't use anti wrinkle cream wink.

have you thought about just tying her hair back really tight if you're really paranoid?

They've proven in quite a few studies that simply moisturizing daily (with something that has an SPF of over 15 etc) is enough to stop you prematurely aging.

I can understand not wanting to look old before your time or do unnecessary damage but this seems a tad OTT (as many of the effects of anti-wrinkle creams are actually temporary and 'wear off' when you stop using it. The lasting benefits come from the moisturizing & protection from UV light).

Also, maybe don't tell her what you're doing it for etc? Don't want to sound judgy but surely the blissful ignorance of their 'appearance' & 'beauty' is a good thing when they're little? It can be quite damaging to the developing mind after all, especially in girls/young women?

This thread is not serious?!! hmm

I am hoping that isitsnowing' grin hmm

Just think of all the chemicals you are introducing her body too...how many ingredients are listed on the anti-wrinkle cream? Only aqua (water) is provably benign <wrings hands>

LEMisdisappointed Wed 08-May-13 11:01:46

but greenhill, its good because she is desensitising her - when she comes to have her chemical peel for her 16th birthday her face will be ready for it smile

This is a joke thread right? Never bloody know on MN!
