Hi Aaliya, thank you for the question.
I am a firm believer in using ingredients that have shown with studies to benefit the skin such as alphahydroxy and polyhydroxy acids, vitamin C, vitamin A or its derivatives, and the anti-oxidant idebenone (Prevage MD). Following this my advice would be to look at NeoStrata (doctor dispensed only), Environ, Nimue, IS Clinical, etc. but there is nothing wrong with using Elizabeth Arden’s product range.
Your most important topical product is a good SPF (50 or higher) that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide and it should be applied several times daily and to practice sun avoidance as much as possible (hat, umbrella, etc.).
Scarring may be difficult to treat using topical products only but my advice would be to consider NeoStrata’s Ultra Smoothing Lotion and a course of chemical peels (glycolic acid).
Your best option in preventing the appearance of lines around the eyes and forehead is to consider Botox to restrict the muscle movement (not completely stopping the movement). If however you are not considering Botox as an option one may have to start chemical peels (glycolic) and technology based treatments (IPL or fractional skin resurfacing).
