I Have Wrinkles

Remember when I shared Grace's new family portraits?

Our Family Picture

I left something out of that story.

See the lines across my and Joe's foreheads? You may notice that Grace and the new baby (tiny though she is) do not have those same lines.

They're wrinkles.

Grace told me so.

I was shocked to hear that I have wrinkles.

I have splotches, red spots, bumps, and big pores, but I do not have wrinkles.

You should have seen the faces I made into the mirror that night, trying to recreate my wrinkles. I frowned. I scowled. I grinned. No wrinkles.

Then I made my mom face, the one where my eyebrows are raised in that “What did you just say to me?” face.

Bingo.

Wrinkles.

All across my forehead.

Grace must see that face a lot to draw me with wrinkles in her family portrait.

She's 3. She needs to see that face a lot.

This is sponsored content from BlogHer and Olay.

When I first started using my Olay Total Effects moisturizer, I was using it only on my cheeks. Like most women, I have combination skin (are you totally impressed by my new found skin knowledge?). My forehead, nose, and chin get oily throughout the day, while my cheeks stay pretty dry.

My cheeks clearly needed moisturizing, so that's where I used the lotion.

After seeing the benefits of the moisturizer (and learning that I have wrinkles), I decided to try it on my forehead.

Just to see.

Since I was using it at night, I figured it wouldn't hurt anything. If my forehead became greasy over night, I could wash it (in the shower, with my body soap, of course), and everything would be fine.

I'm happy to report that my forehead did not get greasy. Like my cheeks, it is smoother and softer. It looks glowy, not greasy at all.

So now I use the moisturizer on my entire face. I still use it at night, before I go to bed.

Despite my pregnant crankiness, I've been told twice this week that I was glowing.

Sorry, Olay, but I didn't tell them about the moisturizer.

  1. Sadly, I haven’t done anything about wrinkles. My mother and grandmother have really good skin and hardly any wrinkles, so I’m banking on heredity saving me.

  2. Right now…nothing. But I am sure I should start soon! I am 24, so I don’t have any yet. But I do have a 3 year old, so I am sure within the next 15 years I will get many! bekki1820cb at gmail dot com

  4. Just in the past year or so, I have started using an oil-free moisturizer on my face every day. I’ve always had oily skin, but the years have caught up with me and now it is drying out.

  5. I have always been one to take care of my skin, I have washed with soap and water twice a day and moisturized since I was 14. So far at 46 I have no wrinkles, in fact my skin is very healthy and young looking

  6. I feel like I’ve tried everything but after reading your take on it, I’m off to the store for one more product and hopefully this will be the ticket. Thank you and Happy Holidays to you! 🙂

  15. Funny story — from the minds and mouths of children. I can picture you in front of the mirror, making faces and searching for the dreaded wrinkles.

    I use moisturizer daily and always use sunscreen. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  16. I don’t do much about wrinkles yet. At 46 I’m lucky to have very few. But I know I need to buckle down and start doing some preventative work.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. I’ve done absolutely nothing about my wrinkles. I’ve always had this huge deep wrinkle on my forehead(thanks dad) and it’s been really annoying me lately. Now that I’m 35, I probably should try doing something about it.

  22. To be honest, I am not doing a thing other than fretting about them! LOL I mean I lotion and use SPF but what else can you do? Aging is just a natural part of life. bleh…LOL

  23. Well, I don’t know if it counts as a treatment for wrinkles, but my fat poofs them out so I don’t look as old as I am! LOL Seriously though, I really don’t mind aging and other than using sunscreen on occasion do not do anything.

  24. I’m getting older and wrinkles and grey hair are all part of that. I’m perfectly content not doing anything about either of them!
