Watching my wrinkles deepen
Gwenhwyfar · 08/06/2020 21:32
OK, so it's normal for wrinkles to get worse as you get older, but the worsening is supposed to be gradual isn't it? I could swear one of mine's gotten noticeable worse overnight. Is it supposed to happen like that?
Could I be dehydrated or something?
All my wrinkles are worse on one side of the face and I don't know why because I don't drive so it can't be photoageing on the driver's side only.
Any ideas about what's going on, or am I just going to look 100 years old by the end of lockdown?

You probably sleep on that side. Get a silk pillowcase!

Thanks Nel. I've actually got one, though I guess it might not actually be silk. I don't have sleep creases when I wake up, but I do have messy hair, which the silk pillow case is supposed to stop.

I'm the same. I reckon I'll need a new ID card to get back in the office as I really think I've aged 5 years since March: loads more lines and I noticed the crepe effect where the cheeks meet the hairline yesterday when I laughed as I looked in the mirror.
I should really start following this board but I get a bit scared of all the ingredients mentioned. I try to buy products that are as natural as possible so don't want to go down the extreme skincare route; however basic unfragranced unperfumed un-anything isn't doing me any favours.

What's happening to us Porridge? I had very dry skin at the beginning of lockdown, but it got better once I didn't need the heating on all day. I had it on today though :(

If you have one or two annoying wrinkles try sleeping in these a couple of nights a week. You can rinse and reuse them so work out inexpensive. I find them comfortable and effective on wrinkles above my lip, which are exacerbated by pillow smooshing.

Gwen I'm sort of the opposite. My skin was ok (but naturally fairly dry) but I seemed to develop hayfever for the first time in my life after lockdown (unless I'm allergic to my family ) so spent about 6 weeks scratching my eyes to bits and not bothering to moisturise in case that made it worse.
Hayfever has calmed down but now my skin is horribly dry and I could probably wedge my debitcard in a wrinkle that's appeared on my forehead. I've even changed my parting to the opposite side in an effort to hide it.
