No lie. I was in an accident last year. I'm just waiting for the check to clear now. So, I've just been doing the Pretika non-stop (infra-red) because it helps with muscle tone and some deeper issues (I was exposed to asbestos about 10 years ago and have had nasal problems since. The infra-red treatment has been helping significantly. I've been doing some reading up on pre-cancerous infra-red treatment, rife machines, etc. great stuff). Anyway, I do have hyperpigmentation, no real wrinkles yet (I'm 49, and I would tell my secret to that one, but I get shot down with everything I seem to share on here, so I'm holding back), anyway, I'm wondering what all I should buy.

Oh yeah, and I am thinking of having a NOSE JOB!!!! HEHEHEHEHEHEHE. Very Happy

I don't need a boob job and I am starting to become happy with my body. I might get the POSE when it comes out, but I am going to wait a bit and see how others react to it. There was so much confusion over the STOP. Confused

Any suggestions? I'm going to try to get a pic posted.

PARTY for ME!!! Hey, I'm pushing 50, so I deserve it!

I want to hear your secret Very Happy . sorry you've been shot down here... geez. That's too bad.

I'd invest your money, (Maybe buy a goody or two) but get ready for a tough economy ahead. Glad you got your settlement.

OK. I forgot to brush my hair this morning (who brushes for the internet?). My eye is a little swollen because I'm on prednisone for poison ivy. My neck needs help. What else do I need?

love you guys!

Hey, Inky, congratulations. For hyperpigmentation, Obagi NuDerm is the way to go, if you can stand the transition period. It takes 18 weeks to replace your existing skin, via Retin-A, and suppress the melanin production, via HQ. Afterward, you'll use the Nu-Derm products a few times per week. Also, I'm getting good results from Kassy's DIY C,E,Ferulic serum and Vivite (found out about that from Bethany). HTH

I know exactlywhat you mean about getting shot down when offering information. Rolling Eyes

Thanks Sis. I intend to do just that-- invest. Silver most likely. I am actually working on an advanced degree in economics so I know only too well how bad the economy is.

Inky


edit:

My secret to wrinkless skin, except occasional lines on my upper lip which I shave off, can be found here:


http://www.amazon.com/More-Heart-Disease-Prevent-Even-Reverse-Heart/dp/0312335822/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1238598758&sr=8-1

I started doing Dr. Ignarro's protocol for stroke prevention and it actually reversed the beginning stages of the wrinkling that was occurring under my eyes (crinkling, wrinkling). This work won Dr. Ignarro a Nobel Prize. I think the good Lord led me to the book (Ignarro was on Oprah and I never watch Oprah, but one day I clicked her on for 5 mins. and saw this). My family has a strong tendency for stroke-- bad ones. This is also quite good for heart disease. I would encourage everyone over the age of 40 to read this book.

Thanks Tessara. I'm going to get started on the Nu Derm pretty soon. What is HQ?

I do think my face is a little distorted because of the close angle of the camara. Also, I wanted to post without makeup. Not glamourous, I know.

Hi Inkypose,

you look very pretty and I definitely don't think that you need a nose job.

Would you consider eye laser surgery instead so you dont have to worry about glasses for the rest of your life.

Take care.

Oh Honey, you are so sweet. But I am 49 and too old for lasik, I think. I let my contacts go bad- accidently dried out, but I am going to order some new ones soon.

Inky... I think you look awesome... and you DO NOT need a nose job... the one you have fits your face... and it doesn't look anything out of the ordinary... Very pretty skin!!!!

I'm going to check out that book your recommended... Diet is HUGE with regard to how we look... Some people don't want to admit to that... I love my creams and potions as much as the next person. But without the proper building blocks IN YOUR body... Forget it...

I'd like to see a picture of you now all glammed up... I'm with others (as yourself) on the saving for a the storm on its way...

Take Care!

Edited to add: I totally assumed the book would be about diet... (which it looks like it partially is... ) Very intersting!

Hi Inky,
I agree -your skin is beautiful - you look so fresh and youthful....Even in your most "un-glamorous" state. And what a brave woman you are to post - my hero!

Are you taking the L-Arginine and the L-Citrulline daily?
I went to Amazon and read a slew of reviews. Very interesting... Thank you so much. I may have to buy the book and the supplements.

Hi, Inky -
I also agree that you don't need a nose job. And I would say that you are a walking advertisement for homeopathic hgh spray Embarassed
Oops, did I say that out loud?

Why do you think you are too old for the lasik surgery? I had the monovision surgery done at age 48. It's been over a year, and I'm still pleased with the result. If you have not done so already, it would not hurt to have a consultation done.

Yeah... I want to know if you're taking a supplement(s) or are you addressing through food? Or both??? Give it up!

HI Claudia,

I wrote a long response to your post last night and then hit some magic key on the keyboard and it all got erased. I do that alot. I wish I knew which key it is. Anyway, I only use the L-Citrulline and L-Arginine. I usually don't use it daily, but in the past year I've had to step it up to almost daily. I can actually tell when I need it by the elasticity of my skin. (I've been taking it for about 4 years now). When I started, I only took it about every 3 days or so. Also, I had to start out slowly and at a lower dosage and work my way up. I had already had signs of hardening arteries in my brain and I could feel the NO loosen the arteries up. It was weird, but reassuring. Also, there have been some problems with people taking too much Arginine so I used to take the minimal amount until I could tell that I needed to step it up a bit. If anyone is already on blood thinning medicine or heart medicine, I would think they should consult with their doctor first before using this protocol, either alone or in conjunction with their present meds.

My grandmother had a very debilitating stroke when she was younger than I am now. She was in bed for a year and it left her paralyzed on the right side of her body. My dad has mini-strokes a lot. So far I am OK. Smile

Thanks Sis. I wrote all that in the post before this one to Claudia.

Thanks Nadjazz. I'll look into it. I thought that lasik wasn't too good for you if you were over 40 or so.

Inky - I hadn't seen your photo when I posted last. I would say you look very good (especially your facial skin, which is firm and non-sagging) and join the others - no nose job needed. I'm not even sure what hyperpigmentation you want to address - all I see are natural freckles, which I like. (I married a freckled redhead, so I have an affinity...)

HQ is hydroquinone, used in Obagi to suppress melanin production.

I can't see your upper eyelids in your photo, bc of your glasses, so no opinion on those. I had PRK (a variant of LASIK) done when I was 41; it was fabulous. Before, my vision was 20/360; afterward, it was 20/40. The only potential negative, I was advised, was that the procedure could tip me into needing reading glasses. It didn't happen to me, but I was willing to risk it in order to be free of contacts/glasses for distance vision.

Re the neck, I've had good luck with the Anti-Aging Light Stim. I've got to go get the kids up for school, but I can pm you a link to my photos if you like.

Claudia - Could not agree more with you! This is exactly what I think. Diet and supplements have way greater impact on the appearance then topicals. I want to be young from within with every cell of the body, not just selected parts of skin layers! Smile

Thanks Tesssara. Yes, I would like to see your AALS pics. And I'll look into the PRK. Inky

Ok... so I was reading a mag. the other day... can't remember which one... It's lying around here somewhere. It was about freckles.

Now, I've always known that sun is damaging to your skin and such. But for some reason never really thought of the way they put it...

Every child is born FRECKLE Free. Every single freckle is Sun Damage... Wow... I've seen those adorable little sprays of freckles over a child's nose, and thought how cute!!! Now I can't help but think... wow... how damaging... I do think that people look fine with their freckles. But I just never gave them the thought of immediate obvious damage (as opposed to the wrinkles that generally come much later...)

How did you know that you had a hardening of the arteries in the brain? And how can you "feel" them loosening up?

I didn't realize I had it until I started the supplements. I had an artery that I could feel literally 'loosen up' with the supplement usage. It was in my brain area. It is very hard to describe-- it felt as if a muscle that had started to atrophy from disuse was being stretched.
