For women, and some men too, just a quick look in the mirror can cause feelings of insecurity. Not because of
age itself but because age... combined with gravity....brings out "the worst" in us, especially our faces.
I have several acne scars from past years that, now that I'm all-grown-up,
have ganged-up with some mean-old wrinkles to spotlight my face When you can't afford a fork-lift then you know....you don't have enough money for a face lift. I believe in research; in reading books, articles, personal testimonies to help with
answers. By so doing, I uncovered something quite interesting.
Remember, I am not a medical expert. I only know I'm
allergic to most medicines and trust very few Doctors. I'm extremely careful about what I put in my body or on my skin so--with that said--here's what works for me.
ALMOST TEN YEARS AGO, after
finding and using an inexpensive scar gel product (under 10 dollars for one small tube) for a period of ten days, I saw the following: my acne scars almost disappeared; the frown wrinkle between my eyes faded complete away; the tiny lines above my top
lip smoothed-out, like they'd been "ironed", and....the indentations at both corners of my mouth----the ones that head downward to your lower face--- became incredibly softer and seemed to blend into my cheeks.
Interesting that the inexpensive product I initially bought, used, and excitedly-shared with my many facebook friends…. began disappearing from Walgreen’s shelves---never to appear again. After bombarding the corporate
office with more and more questions, I soon learned that---executives began noticing that their cheapest scar gel product had suddenly become wildly popular so…..they decided to re-package the same product, market it under another name…
and sell it for 135 dollars a tube!
So now, I shop around for products that guarantee to improve the look of scars of all kinds, including acne scars, even wrinkles. Scar gel products
are sold under different labels and all are priced differently. Basically… having “checked-out” most of these scar-improvement products…I’ve determined that they all have the same ingredients. Initially,
these products were created to diminish the appearance of old and new scars while encouraging smoother skin. Remember: anything that improves your skin’s scars….will also improve your skin’s wrinkles.
WHY am I sharing this information? Because those of us who are still alive--alert---and still care about looking and feeling our best....should take care of each other. If smoothing my face even a little bit, improves my over-all
outlook for today.....then I want to pick up my megaphone and "shout out" my discovery to friends--far and near.
I will always believe that how we feel about ourselves on the inside.....depends
on how we feel about ourselves on the outside. Most of us take pride in looking our best. Our good "look" inspires us to stand taller and walk straighter and....helps us keep- going, day after day. "Just a dab will do you" and....what do you have to
lose-other than a scar, some wrinkles, or both?!?!
THIS is my Sally Miller's Silver Polishe Tip for today. In a few months…I hope to have my SILVER POLISHE TIPS all together--- in a
