I have combination skin of the worst kind. My T-Zone is oil central, and my cheeks and eye are are flaky and dry. I use moisturizers multiple times a day, but am worried that my dry skin will cause early wrinkles. Being 22, I've never really thought much about the various eye creams and wrinkle potions out there, but now I can't seem to get it off my mind! Am I too young to invest in 'Anti-Age' products, and if not, what are some that you all recommend?

You don't need the anti-wrinkle stuff yet. Since you have dry skin, invest in good thick creams designed for dry skin. I also like to add different kinds of oil to my face like grapeseed or vata oil. I have combination skin so I'm not in the same situation as you but the key is moisture and to stay well hydrated. My favourite thick moisturizers at the moment are from Origins. I'm a big fan of natural and organic products.

I agree with what Ali said, thick moisturizer is the way to go. Anti-aging products wouldn't work for you yet.
I posted a review today of Burt's Bees Radiance Night Creme that did wonders for my dry parts during these drying months.
And of course water is key. I went for a massage the other day and the therapist said she could tell I've been drinking more water because my skin moved easily. So staying well hydrated really does show on your skin!

@Ali - I'm obsessed with oils as well, but mainly use jojoba and vitamin E. I haven't yet tried grapeseed or vasta, what have been some of the benefits for you?
@Cathy - I've been skeptical of thick moisturizers because I'm afraid they will clog my pores. I'm quite prone to adult acne on my oily bits.
I was thinking of maybe investing in an eye cream... that way I can have concentrated moisture only around my eye area. Eye creams, and intense moisturizers are a whole new world to me and I'm truly at a loss. Do any of you use only eye creams? If so, what brands suit you?
