I have horrible crepey upper eyelids. I'm doing face exercises but my upper eyelids seem unchanged.
I read that Retin A might help so am looking for some.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

It's a prescription only job but you can be naughty through the Internet and search for inhouse pharmacy, Geoff pharmacy or ebay.
It won't do your upper eyelids any good though. Retin a is definately not to be used on eyelids. It can pool into your socket line and cause irritation. It also thickens the skin and can make wrinkling worse. And it can sink in and irritate your eye.

Is there anything that helps the upper eye area Ijust?
I realised today that mine looks just awful!

La roche posay have a retinol eye cream which might be with trying. My understanding is the retin A is too strong for delicate eyelid skin.
