  • Hey good lookin'!

    We sure don't like our wrinkles! After the on anti-aging goos, readers want to join the conversation. Thanks for your suggestions on other things to try (or reject). In the interest of all of us who want to remain young, here you go: Anna Gunter Kaplan, Rockford, Ill.: I enjoyed your column as I've been searching for new products this past year as my skin has become dry and those signs of aging, fine lines and creases have increased. I have auburn hair and pale, easily irritated skin. I'm a basic soap-water-go person so I wasn't enthusiastic approaching the too many products on the shop shelves. These were my experiences, much like your intrepid team. I tried L'Oreal Revitalift at night. There was some skin irritation and temporary tightening. I finished the bottle and haven't replaced it. Olay Total Effects 7 Signs Serum: it temporarily smoothed fine lines (2-3 hours). I finished the bottle and haven't replaced it. Strivectin: A friend tried it and saw no difference. I thought her under-eye skin looked much firmer but she disagreed. ... And friendship is more important. There were other products like those above I also tried and saw no difference, i.e. I spent too much money this past year trying new products and none seemed to actually change the skin. Thus far, for maintaining skin my best combination for simply looking better is: Wash skin with Cetaphil, nothing else. Olay Daily Regenerating Serum, Fragrance-free: I apply liberally after each face washing and reapply it if I'm outdoors. My skin absorbs it no matter how much I apply which is a little scary as I wonder what's going on inside my skin. :) It provides a smooth skin base for applying my make-up. Revlon Age-Defying Makeup: This I endorse as it applies smoothly and lightly to dry skin and I found a shade that matches my complexion. It temporarily masks fine lines. So ... if I removed and reapplied make-up at the morning and afternoon coffee break, I'd look "smoother" most of the workday. That's far too much maintenance effort for my taste. To reduce dryness, at night I apply KY Jelly to my skin around my mouth, chin, and around my eyes. The gel holds water against the skin and the skin absorbs it and it's completely non-irritating. Yes, it looks odd but who cares at night. If this idea seems wacko, it was told to me by a hospital dietician; I never would have thought of it myself! For overall dry skin, Avon Silicon Cream is the most effective and soothing cream I've found. And I try to drink lots of water. After this year of experimentation: my skin is softer, more moisturized but lines and creases are still present! As Spring begins, I need to find a high SPF lotion that is non-gooey and non-irritating. I may have to call a dermatologist for that info. If you consider non-surgical medical dermatology procedures, write a column about your team's experiences. Hope your intrepid team of explorers finds at least a small, trickling fountain of youth. Let us know if you do!
