It seems everyone I know over 35 has one question for me when they find out I'm a beauty editor: What anti-aging products do I recommend. Since the first signs of aging are around the eyes, people usually want to know about eye creams. So I've compiled my list of favorite eye creams from fancy and fabulous to the best deals at the drugstore.

Everyone wants to look 5-10 years younger than they are (just like everyone wants to be above-average, right?), so aside from wearing eye cream, here's how to do just that...

  • Prevent wrinkles. Wear sunscreen every day even when it's cloudy. See my list of the best sunscreens.
  • Fix the wrinkles you have by using a prescription retinoid like Renova or Retin-A. Retinoids boost collagen production. See "Is Retin-A the secret to youthful skin?"
  • Give your skin life with antioxidants. Antioxidants such as Vitamin C cream repair what has been damaged by sun exposure, smoking, the natural aging process and more. There's more on antioxidants in "How to get rid of wrinkles."
  • Slough off dead skin on a weekly basis with a scrub made for the face. Check out my list of the best scrubs.
  • It's very important to choose cleansers, moisturizers and a skin care routine based on your skin type. Use products formulated for dry, oily or combination skin and if you have sensitive skin, consult a dermatologist on the best skincare routine for you. See my lists of the best cleansers and moisturizers.

Just as an FYI to the readers- Prescriptives closed down their line at the end of 2009 so that eye cream is no longer available (may be time to update the list? LOL). I would also recommend to anyone MAC’s Fast Response eye cream. It is amazing, works wonders for puffy, aging eyes as it also firms and also helps ease dark circles. For a department store line product its surprisingly reasonably priced too. It has a very silky feel, almost like a primer, so eye makeup and concealor don’t settle into any fine lines or eye creases.

Wow, Jenn – you know a lot about make-up! I heard that MAC has a great product line! Also, I really thought that the cream, Prescriptives was still around! I had no idea they were closed down… Thanks for all of your invaluable information – you should be a writer here – for real!!

While most instances of hair loss can be related to stress, heredity
or poor nutrition, some can be a cause for concern and should be checked out by your family doctor.
