If any of you out there have not seen your natural lip color in years that you had in your 20's I suggest you use Candy's Lip Service. This product ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The color of my lips are beautiful and my lips are so so so soft. I use it twice a day, no longer have to use anything else.

FOR REAL??? It restored color to your lips?? Mine are ghostly pale now. Ugh.


It is THE ONLY PRODUCT that has given me any noticable results, and, in just 2 weeks. My lips are no longer dry and my color is so pretty. I use it twice a day, that's all.

I have just started a few new products, 2 DYI and 1 not, and am hoping I see results just like this one. Will keep you posted on those after a few weeks.

Yes ... let me know! I just checked out that Lip Service and it's pretty pricey for a lil' ol' school teacher from the midwest! Do you apply any color on top of it or do you use it and it alone?

I use lip stain (thin lips). I put that on first then the Lip Service.

Well Smoky, you're singing my song to the T. I'm 57 and I woke up one morning and didn't recognize the face in the mirror! I do use the Vit C, and Renova, and a host of other products...which has improved the look and feel of my skin considerably. I've tried diluted CPs, the REAL CPs, but it seems they were drying out my skin. I'm going to start back with the CPs next week, and may dilute it even more than I was initially.

My question to you ladies--what is DPL? Thanks.

I try to keep my skin looking as youthful as I can by using the only products scientifically proven to slow down or prevent aging :

broad spectrum sunscreens
prescription retinoids

and a distant third: a stable, anhydrous Vitamin C serum


Peels at home also help, but not too much.

Here's webpage for DPL that the ladies have previously posted.

Please stick to the topic at hand. This is a difficult thread because it's very general but if you start discussing skincare results here *and* also side discussion then soon enough this thread will get so huge that you will abandon this one and will need to start another because this one won't be easy to read anymore. I gather that the point of starting this thread was to have a nice summary of what products, tools, etc work for more mature skins, rather than also covering how to use things etc, which is covered in other threads. And please remember that sarcasm has no place in this thread, if you have an issue with someone then take it to PMs, don't do it here. Thank you.

I'm wondering if the before/after photos on ncnproskincare can be for real. Has anyone experienced such effects?

Mel, what I really do love about the DPL is that I can do my entire face in a 9 minute setting. I don't need to move it around. My skincare professional recommended that I use it twice a day. I'm very impressed with the results I've gotten.

I posted a couple of days ago, but my post disapeared! Was a question about the DIY products. Could anybody give a reason as to what could have hapened?
On a DIY forum I read that is possible to create your own creams, that would be similar to brand names(or not), and wanted to ask if you tried it, and if so what is your oppinion. It seems that the moderator is a doctor, and is more of a scientific board. They sell the ingredients, and some of these creams.
TIA

Perhaps you should look on the EDS "Skincare Tools & Do-It-Yourself Skincare" forum here. Have you?

I hope body skin questions can be addressed here. Has anyone found a firming/cellulite solution? I know the products basically just help the appearance and don't actually reduce cellulite but I have found they do help with overall appearance in some way. Maybe they just tighten the surface a little. Who knows, but I think the stuff I have is does maked a little difference on me. I am running out and time for new ones and there are so many out there now. Is there one out there that you have heard about or tried that is better than the rest? The ultrasonic is supposed to reduce fat. I wonder if any of these products with an Ultrasonic device would improve things? I think our tissues are definitely different than 30 and 40 yr olds so hope it is ok I posted this here on this thread.

Marina, don't panic darlin. Ari's telling you the truth. I have only been using the DPL and cp's for about 3 weeks now. I can tell you that I really do look alot better. My lines are getting better and my general skin tone and color are better already.


Ok, ok, ok ... maybe I should know this, but what are "CP"'s and "DPL"'s?
I'm 54 and the overnight thing was sped up with two chemo battles due to breast cancer. I didn't even recognize myself after the first go round. The second time I started using Obagi. It took a couple of months, but the effects were terrific. However, my sister (a mere 45 -- the youngster) didn't like Obagi.
I've tried a number of different skin lines and am open to suggestions. Wink

Hi KD - sorry to hear what you have been going through. My sister had Ovarian Cancer at 38 and went throught the whole thing. (She is fine now - got it at stage 1). I don't have any skin care suggestions for you but to answer your questions - CP is Copper Peptides and the DPL is a LED type at home gadget that you sit in front of. There are a number of places to get the CP's but I think most are getting the DPL from here http://www.ncnproskincare.com/. At least you can read up about them.

Based on the glowing reviews about CP's and the recommendation to check NCN's website I did some research and started the Q & A via email to NCN. Amazing CS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I asked a ton of questions specific to my needs and Nanci not only responded, but responded quickly.
Placed an order based on her recommenations (and she couldn't have been clearer or sweeter) and she is sending free samples of stuff she thinks I might like based on our chit chat.
Gotta say -- you ladies know your stuff when it comes to making recommendations.
I'm quitting Obagi and giving NCN products a try ... let's see what happens. Very Happy

kd I ordered from Nanci last week and she is just as wonderful as you just described.
I wish every business had such amazing customer service.
I ordered the pumpkin scrub and the exfoliating cloth. Next order will be something in the CP line.

kd I also wish you a great recovery and hope that these products will give positive results for your skin!

Winnie,
where do you layer the copper with these products?


Yogi,

I no longer use Janson Beckett Products at night as AlphaDermaCE has Vit. C. From what I understand Copper Peptides will void any benefits from C. I use Copper Peptides and Emu Oil at night. During the day I use C Serum, Mineral Prep and AlphaDermaCE.

I have been using Copper Peptides for a little over a month. I think I am seeing some added firming around the eyes and neck. I know I have to give the CPs time.

Summer is fast approaching so I think I might switch things up. CP's and a sunscreen during the day and the JB line at night.


What kind of Emu Oil? Have you tried different ones? What do you like about Emu Oil the best and are there equal alternatives? Question Question Question

To anyone on this forum

I am a little late on this topic and saw there was way too much to read. Interesting stuff

Wondering if someone could summarize the products that worked for most people as in a list form?? I could be a lot of work and is asking a bit much.

It would make a great quick reference tool since I don't have the patience to read all of it and my attention span is shorter these days.

For me, these are the products that I have come across and tried since belonging to EDS:

. oil cleansing method - most efficient way of cleansing the skin
. Copper Peptide serum
. Retin-A
. lactic acid peels
. Vitamin C serum
. DMAE serum
. oat beta glucan liquid

My skin has never looked better, so I will continue to use all of the above. There's also allot of talk about Sea Kelp Bioferment - have this on order so haven't tried it yet.

Thank you for summarizing. I'm having a bit of difficulty finding a couple of things and was hoping you could direct me to the threads ...
- lactic acid peels (and product recommendations?)
- oat beta glucan liquid - (located a source? What's "GOW"?)
- oil cleansing method?

I have a bit of a challenge locating threads ... any suggestions?

There are a few places on the web that sell lactic acid but I get mine from Makeup Artists Choice - have a look at their web site for info. GOW is Garden of Wisdom, they have lots of goodies and sell the oat beta glucan which is full of anti-oxidants. OCM is oil cleansing method which means cleansing your skin with 50/50 mixture of castor and extra virgin olive oil.

Just use the search function and you will find lots of info on all of the above.
