sad sad Im nearly 34, had a baby 2 years ago and I'm the first to admit i havent had much sleep during that time soi dont think thats helped, Diet has been ok since january as im trying to do slimming world.

So where the hell did they come from? I remember looking at women my age a few years ago and I would secretly check out there eyes and would see wrinkles creeping up on them and I used to think well at least Im a bit older and dont have them yet, well didnt Karma just creep up on me at the weekend, I swear they werent there before christmas, not to this extent anyway!!

What do you use to reduce them? No botox, Im not that desperate... yet!

I've read that it is worth getting your eyesight checked. If you are screwing up your eyes to see, wrinkles can develop.
I shall be lurking to see recommendations. I could definitely use some help in that department!

I had the same moment of horror a few months ago, also had hardly any sleep due to disobedient babies....

This morning I noticed that one of my wrinkles has faded so much i cant find it even under The Strip Light of Hell.

I've been drinking three litres of water a day and I've been oil cleansing with shea butter and also moisturising twice a day with shea butter. I only started a week ago, it's incredible. No 11s, no mouth to nose trough. And my skin is actually shiny even on my forearms!

In terms of diet I ditched all sugar and alcohol....apparently sugar wrecks the collagen

FrankCarson, what kind of Shea butter do you use?

So thats the secret, no chocolate, no wine, lots of water errrrrmmmm hmm I was hoping for a miracle cure that everyone here had discovered and it would only cost £2 grin

I am trying to give up tea and chocolate, so I'll see in a few weeks if thats helped or not. I now have an extra reason to stay of chocolate for a while to see if it helps! Actually thinking about it now I have eaten more chocolate since my ds was born than anything else, just quick and easy to snack on.... maybe there could be something in that!!

Shea butter, John, is on amazon, I buy the stuff from naissance which is £15 per kilo which would last you...six months? They do much smaller containers too, though!

The reason I decided to give it a go by quitting sugar, is that I realised that my friends who are ageing badly all have a sweet tooth....then I found research about glycolysis and now....nothing's worth feeling as awful as I did after Christmas when I saw photos of me looking haggard
