OT Skin Care Question

This is way off topic -sorry! But being that i am 28 now I concerned about getting wrinkles (I already have a few fine lines -smile lines- and the dreaded ones between my eye brows). Anyways, I have skin that tends to break out too so I am using proactive right now and my skin is very clear but I am concerned the semi harsh treatments of the proactive will cause my wrinkles to get worse and not prevent me from getting new ones. Such a catch 22! Do any of you have any good skin care advice. I know this may sound silly but the women in my family dont really age that well and I really want to take good care of my skin. I never, ever tan my face as i know that is one of the worse things you can do...

I have been using neutrogenia Anti Wrinkle Anti Blemish face wash. I love the wash, but the moisterizer isn't enough around my eyes, so I use a wrinkle serum on that area. I will occasionally use a spot acne cream on the individual zits when they appear.

At 33 - I think I have done a good job of warding of wrinkles thus far. My secret? Moisturize. Every morning and every night - without fail. Alpha hydroxy in the mornings, Beta hydroxy at night. I use a seperate eye cream, but I use it morning and night as well. Also, I use deep exfoliations and face masks once a week - along with all the silly home remedies such as cuc_mbers after a long night out, vaseline after I ski, and yes - hemmroid cream under the eyes twice a week. And if you do anything active - wash your face as soon as you can and moisturize asap.

Oh - and even though it isn't your face - another thing I do to help take care of my skin is cracked heel cream. Yes, I do use it on my heels, but I also use it on my hands, elbows and knees every night before I drift off... It works great!

I moisterize every morning too. My derm recommended it. I also like to occasionally use a glycolic treatment too. But as any derm will tell you, genetics does play a big roll in how your skin ages, but there are factors you can control like sun damage and cigerette smoke exposer. Look at any woman who has smoked for more than 10 years and she will look much older than a nonsmoker the same age.
