i may be the only youngster here posting this but what you all talk about is really admiring. I am 25 years old (will be 26 Tuesday!) i was never face fantic til 4 years ago when i started developing periodal dermitis. since then i have to be supppper sensitive about what i put on my face and luckily i am alot like my father he's 56 years old and just now hes started looking older but the thing is i dont even smoke(allergic) and drink plenty of water a day! i look like i am 20 to most but what you all say again is very admireable!

i currently use vitamin e ointment from gnc (its like 4 dollars) and aveeno during the day since those 2 are the only stuff that doesnt cause skin breakouts.

i used to use alot of expensive stuff but those expensive stuff caused alot of facial problems< i had to get rid of them under doctors orders, so those expensive stuff sometimes arent always good for you. seeing a dermitogolist is always helpful in my opinion regards to your face!

Hi Skaternum,
I too am using Olay Regenerist micro sculpting cream, and have used other Olay products. I am 64, and would love to find a great neck cream. I have been satisfied with the Olay products, but do not know if they have a neck cream that works for ladies in my age range.

C.D.

Normal skin and not quite dry yet, but need good products that fight crepe neck from coming and wrinkles from forming.
Am willing to spend the money IF the products are great and really do their job. Need a good neck cream and night cream especially. It's h*ll getting older, but I plan to fight it all the way to the grave!!!
IMHO ~ TAKE all that $$$$$ spent on cosmetics which don't work ~ and spend it on high quality natural (unprocessed) food ~ pure water ~ and organic soap

Stay out of the sun, except for a minimum absorption for Vitamin D

IMHO ~ If your skin is already messed up by years of abuse and eating the wrong foods, reversal won't be accomplished by cosmetic products.

I speak from experience; age 72 and nice skin, in spite of 30+ years living in s/Florida

I am 62, and I just needed to consult a plastic surgeon to have something lasered off my face, and I was reminded that most plastic surgeons and dermatologists have products for advanced skin care. Once I get done paying for my procedure, I think I'll go have an evaluation by the skin care folks at his office. I'm thinking that once I have their opinion on what is needed and what the ingredients are in the professional products, then I can perhaps find cheaper similar products at the drug store.

You know what I've noticed though? Even those women who have had expensive plastic surgery on their faces still seem to have crinkly old necks. It makes me think there is no fix for this, or they would have had that fixed too.

I think it just boils down to picking the right parents. I have an 83 year old aunt who is unlined and beautiful, so I'm hoping to have some of her traits.

^^^ I have never used Frownies, have heard a lot if good things about them. I rely on the Tua Viso for the diy facelift effect & skincare for skin building & glow. Really works.
