I am religous about sunscreen! No need to have even more lines!

Staci said...

I don't really have any anti-aging tips, but I definitely feel as though I am aging fast. My oldest daughter was born with a disability and requires a lot of work. We had another daughter 19 months later. Neither walk so I spend all day working with my oldest and carrying them around. I spend night getting up with them. Have two kids has made me age quite a bit faster than I'd like.

Sarah said...

Well... I don't really have any anti-aging tips either. I probably need them! I'm still fairly young and probably don't do anything I should. I do avoid putting too much "stuff" on my face, but I could definitely use some moisturizing! My kids are young, but I can already feel that they will help me age a bit!

When I'm putting on moisturizer I always rub up instead of down. Gravity already takes care of the down part!

K.I.D.S. do a doozy on my aging process! :) Love them, but don't love the wrinkles!

Tuesday Girl said...

My mother taught me to use moisterizer with sunscreen every day sicne I was 13!

Heidi said...

I am all about the moisturizer as well. But having 3 1/2 kids pretty much ages me as fast as I can!! =)

Kendra Meyers said...

I too love the sunscreen. Last summer I was sick of having a white face, so I went without and started getting sun spots! I'm back to using the sun screen again.

Scott and Cindy said...

Let's see, my best tip: use vaseline to moisturize around your eyes - it's supposed to do amazing things! It's hard to see yourself looking older, but I must say that I kind of like the smile lines :).

Amy Morris said...

I love Aveeno products! Living in Florida you always need sunscreen and aveenos is great! Amy Morris

Christal said...

Love aveeno love giveaways ! My tip is always wash your face at night and moisturize like everyone pretty much said! Happy Mothers Day girls!!

abbyjane said...

I am aging quicker because I had my second baby 5 mos ago and she is a horrible night sleeper. SHe wakes up 3-5 times a night still! I can't let her cry it out becuase of our current living situation (which is changing soon!) and I don't get any sleep. I'm only 25 and I am noticing giant bags under my eyes. I don't like it not one little bit.

Amanda said...

pregnancy has aged me more than i ever thought it would. i'm just thankful i was blessed with such a wonderful baby boy. he makes me forgot all the ailments of my post-pregnancy body! i would love to try the aveeno anti-aging products.

I have to take my make up off everynight no matter how tired I am. If I don't I feel like a wrinkley elephant the next day! I love to lather on the cream before bed and waking up refreshed.

And, sunscreen...that's a huge one!

Carly

Rob and Jewls said...

My anti-aging tip is to sleep and use vaseline on your hands and feet. Since, I don't seem to get as much sleep as I would like as a mom of two, vaseline is about all I can fit in!

Kasey said...

3 kids 6 and under, husband gone A LOT. Need I say more? I NEED this!

KELLY said...

I wake throughout the night to comfort cries. I have a 3 minute shower and quickly throw on whatever I can find to spend an hour bathing, moisturizing and primping my 2 boys. I don't have time to moisturize - yet a constant application of lotion keeps my boys' skin like butter. I'll grab a few crackers - wouldn't dare eat the gorgeous berries and kiwi I just brought home form the grocery store - they're for the boys. And buy anti-aging creams... how? my arms are full of diapers, wipes and crayons!

Yes, I blame all of the above for making me age much quicker than I should but hell, I don't have time to look in the mirror!

A new friend saw my wedding photos and couldn't stop gushing about how great I looked. She also kept saying how I look so different now.

Yeah, 2 kids have done me in. Sign me up please!

I need to use sunblock more often and this would get me started, thanks for the giveaway!

laura said...

I think I am aging quicker than I should because of all the time I spent in the sun during my un-wise, younger years! Drats.

Lindsay said...

Moisturizing is my favorite anti-aging tip. So many woman don't realize how important it is to keep your face moisturized.
Lindsay Smith

whitney said...

My tip would be to use sunscreen on your body and not just on your face. You don't want your body to look older than your face. And of course, to smile- it hides the wrinkles! And I'm aging because I worry too much and it turns me into a stress ball!

IFtheShoeFits said...

As a brand new mom at 36 and with my 20 year high school coming up I need all the anti-aging help I can get! My friends all have teenagers and I have a 9 month old! Best tip: Go Sunless Tanner! Try Sally Hansen's Airbrush Spray for legs! It's a knockout! ;)

Why I feel I am aging quicker than I should: I've had gray hair since the 7th grade, and with my first baby due in a month I have a feeling things can only get worse! I would love to win this giveaway! -Kristin R.

MMW said...

stay out of the sun!!!

stacey said...

I use moisturizer with SPF in it everyday. I have fair skin so I need that. I haven't tried Aveeno's anti-aging line, but I've heard great things about it! I had my first baby 6 months ago and it has definitely taken a toll on me. lol

nathalia said...

Well, my hubby swears by early to bed, early to rise and we've been doing that since we found out I'm pregnant. We're trying to stash/save up sleep. I started a count down: "Honey! We only have 3 more Saturdays to sleep in!" (And yet I'm so excited for our little bundle to come!) I would love the Aveeno anti-aging set since we're already fans of their line of products!

Karen Scoffield said...

I don't have any aging tips..but I would love to try out the product!

Marlisle said...

My baby girl is keeping me young (at heart, that is). Sunscreen, exercise, a healthy diet and a happy disposition are what I use to wage the war on premature aging.

Its my smile lines I hate, and now they seem permanently apart of my life! HELP!!!

All I can say is sunscreen! It is my only defense and seems to be lacking. I can use all the help I can get!

Briste said...

I have noticed a big difference on my face after I turned 30. I worry about wrinkles and like to try different products to help protect my freckles. Everyone wants to be 50 and look like they just turned 30 right?

Briste

April said...

My favorite anti-aging tip whether it works or not is removing my eye make-up with vaseline. It is easy, cheap, and keeps the area around my eyes feeling and looking young and smooth.

Sarah said...

The best anti-aging tip: having children. While I may LOOK a lot older, having four children 5 & under, I'm younger and more alive than ever. Wouldn't all you moms agree? I've gained a whole new perspective on "beauty" and "aging" ... but I still do need a little "somethin' somethin'" - just so my skin lasts as long as my heart!! :)

Sarah, grateful mom and adoring wife

Britta said...

Exercise is a huge plus for me - and who wouldn't love moisturizer to help out the process! -Britta

Mandella Green said...

I've never started aging until now. And i see the sahara slowly appearing on my face! I, like Indiana Jones say, "It isn't the age, it's the mileage!"

tara said...

I love Aveeno and am sure this product is just as good as all their others.

Stacy said...

love aveeno for the baby why not for me?

Julie said...

Sunscreen and water!

Danielle said...

Haha! Yes my kids are rapidly aging me. I really try to stay out of the sun, sunscreen & lots of water..

mcginnisfamily5(at)gmail(dot)com

Panjo Kids said...

Drink lots of water, use moisturizer and don't wear makeup when you don't have to. My early signs of aging are from the sun.

Ames said...

I try to remember sunscreen - especially on my face... That's about all I do though - not much...

michelle said...

My best anti-aging tip is to stay out of the sun. I wear moisturizer daily and only put on make-up when I am going out.

Mommy said...

Sunscreen is of course the best and easiest tip there is! But definitely having kids speeds up the process. While I was giving birth, my husband decided that was a good time to point out my first gray hairs. Maybe husbands cause them too...?
Thanks!

I use moisturizer with sunscreen. It is all I can do, but I do think I have good jeans-both my parents look fabulous, though we all have the crows feet around our eyes!

I cleanse every night and use sunscreen. I'm sure not enough sleep doesn't help.

I'm with you - aging faster due to pregnancy/motherhood - I wouldn't trade it, but I'd still like to fight it!

Kristen M. said...

I don't currently use a moisturizer. I'm lucky to have youthful looking skin but I can tell that the sun is starting to take it's toll. I need a good moisturizer to help keep my skin healthy as I age.

CJW's folks said...

I'll take all the help I can get as I get older!

LisaW said...

Tanning is overrated. Put on a good coat of sunscreen.

natalie said...

Anti- aging tip:
Take time out for mom. Small ones each day and every once in awhile leave the kids with my husband for a few days.

Scarlett said...

My tip: Take off all your makeup and moisturize at night. Every night.

Amy said...

I always moisturize and use sunscreen.

kamewh said...

Always use sunscreen :)

julie said...

living in Florida....must use sunscreen and wear a hat!

cmaxwell said...

Always moisturize your skin and drink water. And I can vouch for Aveeno, I just love the stuff!! :)

Toystory said...

My sons were called imaginative and industrious. They did stuff to me every day. I couldn't keep up - like the one painting the inside of the other's ears with nail polish -- washing the INSIDE of my car with the hose, later blowing up our mailbox to see how much damage a cherry bomb could do, etc. etc. I am definately aged!

mannequin said...

no tips here as I am getting older lookin by the minute. I have never indulged myself and never taken the money to buy products for skincare.In any fashion. The results are here; no one says "You look so much younger than that!" Now they say, "OH"...

JNM said...

I use my forehead a lot in everyday expression and have massive lines there--oh well, not going to not move my face. Ill have to try these products instead. Aveeno is a great company.

poligal said...

No real anti-aging tips here. I think my husband more than my kids is making me age quicker! LOL

I love Aveeno products too! Honestly I dont do much and I am certain I should. I have a 7 year old, am pregnant with my second and also have arthritis...so plenty reasons to age!:P
Thanks

Huguette said...

sunscreen is a must everyday!

Johnny and Angela said...

What is making me old...life---isn't it all about experiences and beginning to look our age? I think some days I look older then others based upon how many hours of sleep I got --- or didn't get.

Becca said...

I have to confess that I don't do much to take care of my skin. But in the past year I have become much more consistent with daily cleansing and moisturizing.

Jenna said...

My skin has certainly taken a turn for the worse in the past year, since I had my baby. I've always had bags under my eyes, but now they're AWFUL. I haven't figured out any anti-aging tips that actually work, but I do hear that drinking lots of water does wonders for the skin.

Lilith Silvermane said...

I have always swore by Oil of Olay and I think that and genetics are the reason my skin looks so good. UNTIL.. I tried Aveeno a few weeks ago from a sample I got. I can honestly say, I'm a changed woman, I LOVE Aveeno and the product and how it makes my skin feel.. I'm sold!

sweetsue said...

My anti-aging tip is to listen to the music of your youth and dance to it. It is good exercise, and makes you happy and look and feel younger-maybe a little foolish, but who cares!

peekab00 said...

Although i feel my youth slipping at times.. especially with twins... I also feel it rejuvinated because of them.. i sometimes live trough their eyes, their innocence, and their laughter... It's great to forget the crows feet and the gray for a little while.. :) then i look at my husband and remember... shoot... we're old!! :)

Michelle ~ [ real neat ] said...

Use sunscreen!

Betsy said...

Using sunscreen helps. I am only 30 and I have a lot of gray hair already! 10 for each my 3 kids and 100 from my husband! :)

Michele said...

My antiaging tips I have used since I was 11 and learned them from my good friend and mentor that was in her 20's. She taught me several things, but, the most important, she said was to remember to moisturize daily with sunscreen and try to always wear a hat. I lived in the tropics for my first half of my life, so I am sure this has helped me remain wrinkle free. (so far, nothing has been found on my yearly mole patrol), But, my mom and sisters have all had to have face lifts and botox injections already and my sis is younger then I! Even my brother does the botox!
I also learned that Olive oil was the best body moisturizer you could find. No stretch markes or chicken skin to be found on my body! And then another important thing was to care for my feet by using a pumice stone at least every other day, applying Olive Oil and covering with white cotton socks. My pedicurist is always amazed at how soft my feet are, I have never had to have them use a scraper yet!
Aveeno has always been one of my favorite products, especially in the bath soaks. But, I did get a sample of the moisturizer for the face and body in the mail and LOVE IT! I have never used this one before, only the body creams.
The only thing that makes me feel much older then my stated age is my MS. This makes me feel 20 years older then I am, some times even older then that. But, I can at least say...I look younger! The kids...they are responsible for making my smile lines the most noticible lines on my face. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway,
Michele

judygr64 said...

I think my best tip would be to keep your skin clean and moist. There's no question that this very dry Arizona weather and sun has made my skin age!

ihchicky said...

My best tips are to get enough sleep and use sunscreen.

blueviolet said...

I think any fine lines and wrinkles I am seeing are directly related to having been a sun worshipper. I scoffed at sunscreen and slathered on baby oil while laying on my reflective silver blanket. I gave all of that up about 10 years ago but I'm sure damage was done and I'm just starting to see the effects. I'm so mad at myself.

I use sunscreen now, but not as a teenager when I baked in the sun. I had to get my summer tan.

Sunscreen is super important! Moisturizer as well. I love Aveeno products. I'm not sure why I'm aging so quickly, probably my 2 daughters & my crappy thyroid :)

IGiveYou said...

Sunscreen is so important - sadly I only began using it consistently D: Don't forget your ears too!

nihly said...

Well, unfortunately I am very bad at being good to my skin!! Especially my face. I am the one that makes sure my baby and husband are covered in sunscreen, but sadly I always forget myself!!

Mortensen Family said...

My Aunt Pam gave me this tip years ago. Every day, before you put your sunscreen and make-up on, rub a small amount of vaseline all over your face. This keeps the skin *really* soft and slows down wrinkles.

My favorite antiaging tip is to have good genes which I don't have. Seriously. I'm aging exponentially. After this last kid the not sleeping has taken it's toll. I'm 38 going on 48. Please help.

Megret said...

My anti-aging tip: Moisturize and get plenty of sleep.

I do think I'm getting wrinkles/fine lines a bit too early, though...I'm only 30. It does slip up on you. It seems like just yesterday I was a teenager worrying about acne. :0)

As we catch hold of age, our skin slowly loses its moisture and elasticity, making our complexion look dull and blister. Every age brings along it's own problems and some effective skin treatments as mentioned below can fight with these problems at different stages of your life.
