Anti-Aging Eye Shadows May Smooth Wrinkles

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

I use an anti-wrinkle eye cream before putting on my eye shadow, and my eyelids look fine until I put on eye shadow. The eyeshadow seems to be drying out my eyelids and shows up the tiny little wrinkles on my lids. I cannot go without eyeshadow. Is there such thing as an anti-wrinkle eye shadow?

Dear Looking for new products,

Anti-wrinkle creams or makeup will not permanently remove wrinkles, but they may help diminish the appearance of lines or creepiness, smooth and condition the skin. Look for products with anti-aging ingredients such as vitamins A (retinol), C (ascorbyl palmitate or tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate), E (tocopheryl acetate), and other antioxidants.
