Laughter Lines...but nothing is that funny

This week I have seen a picture of myself and was horrified by the lines around my eyes.

Short of surgery, any suggestions on how to improve them with eye creams etc. Can you recommend anything you use?

I'm considering growing a Claudia Winkelman style fringe to hide behind.

Also thinking I might get a fringe although my hair is very curly so not sure it would suit.

The only solution is botox, really.

feather fringe

If you don't use sunscreen on your face every day, start now. It's the only thing that actually makes a significant difference.

Other than stopping smoking of course.

I agree that Botox is the answer. Kept catching sight of myself today thinking I looked quite good for me - then realised last Saturday's Botox has kicked in! Worth every penny.

I was hoping you wouldn't say Botox. I don't think I could let anyone that close to my eyes with a needle as I'm a bit totally freaked out by anything even pointing near my eyes weird about eyes. In fact even typing that has made my toes curl.

BornStroppy when you said "feather fringe" I imagined Brian Connelly from The Sweet c1972. Told you I was old.
