It's called "Way Back Machine."   ;D  ;D  ;D

But seriously, Dr. Perricone was on a public tv fundraiser and he mentioned the anti-inflammatories DMAE, Alpha Lipoic acid (50 mg per day) and Vit C Ester. They come in capsules or as creams, available at the health food store for a better price than his signature line of products. Also eat lots of salmon, blueberries, nuts, veggies, flax seeds/oil and drink plenty of water. Avoid inflammatory foods. I do notice a difference when I am disciplined and consistent.

I bought the expensive "stretch mark" wrinkle cream at a big box discount store and used both tubes. I didn't notice an extraordinary change one way or the other. My gorgeous friend who is a former model and actress also tried it and was very disappointed.

My skin care specialist (haha, a woman I got a facial from once at a spa) used a mild acidic peel, glycolic acid I believe? I bought some at the HFS as well since it was much cheaper than the Perricone or spa products. I need to get some more and get back into my usual routine.

Dr. Oz showed a real home remedy for skin care which I use once every week or so: crush 12 unbuffered aspirin into the juice of 1/2 a lemon and grind together making a smooth, thin cream. Apply to the face avoiding mouth (ick) and eyes (ouch.) Leave on for 10 minutes and remove with a mixture of baking soda and water (it will fizz and sting a little.) Rinse with clear water and apply moisturizer. I don't think it targets wrinkles but it sure makes my skin clear and soft.

I always turn to Consumer Reports when I have a question like this, because they do extensive comparative tests in a laboratory.  Here is what they say about anti-wrinkle creams

I have two things that work really well for me...a dimly lit room or a guy who can't see very well anymore. If you can combine the two...Joila! No wrinkles! (Of course you can't count on a particularly lively evening, so you have to keep your priorities straight.)

I just saw this and had to share:

Well, this remedy won't diminish your wrinkles, but it will bring a lovely, rosy glow to your face.

LOL Luise, it always is a grand idea to keep them in the dark, but tht does not always work during the daytime.

Get this one, I remember my Aunt once a week would walk around for an hour while doing house cleaning with her hair tied back with a "babooska" and mayonaise all over her face, that was her facial..?

And Thank You Seasage, I did listen to the consumer report and found it interesting......

All my retired friends, men and women alike, almost immediately looked 20 years younger upon leaving their jobs. I like that wrinkle remedy the best, but I can't afford it.

No, I can't say I have....but I have friends that swear by preperation H instead of the high-priced instant wrinkle lifters.  They say it doesn't do anything long-term, but is great for temporary wrinkle fixes and puffiness, and much cheaper!

So do you flash your butt at people so they can see how unpuffy and wrinkle free it is? I'm so confused.

I agree Luise, I never realised it was so versatile ;)
