    The daily commute seems to have taken a toll on my skin and I'm noticing some wrinkles on my forehead which I'm sure weren't there a year ago.

    I think it's a combination of the weather and the scowl / angle I cycle to work with. I normally use L'Oreal Men Expert but I think I might be ready for some anti-wrinkle stuff.

    Do any guys on here use that pentapeptides stuff, the one advertised by Nadine Baggot in the adverts?

    Look at your face, then look at your obblix (mirror optional :o), if your face wrinkles match your obblix wrinkles, THATS the time to worry !!

    Use a moisturiser that contains UVA & UVB sun screens and make sure you don't just apply & forget it, but reapply during the day. You don't have to spend a fortune on a moisturiser, despite what the adverts would have you believe - even we ladies tend not to fall for the hype :biggrin:

    Of course you could always go for a combination of a chemical peel, fillers & botox. :ohmy:

    I use a Boots moisuriser after shaving and it has certainly kept my skin less wrinkly

    I recommend Wrights Coal Tar soap for absolutely no effect on wrinkles whatsoever.

    I would use Assos cream.

    I have applied it for years on one part of me, but left everywhere else 'Assos free' as a control. The area which sees a regular application has yet to get a single wrinkle.

    You can't get more scientific than that.

    Quite the contrary, I believe that anyone who *doesn't* use skin care, doesn't actually cycle that much at all

    Because vanity, thy name is Arbitrary :ohmy:

    Wrinkles add character to a face. Character is good. Youth is dull, and only attractive to the morbidly superficial.

    If I'm honest, the wrinkles seem to have gone today, it seems to be a stress induced end of friday thing.

    I do however seem to be getting the tell-tale signs of crows-feet however, a sort of dimpling. Hmmm....

    Anyone who doesn't moisturise and then cycles a lot probably looks like a sandblasted pineapple anyway...
