|These are the pills I'm taking. They're a very pretty baby pink. It makes me think that's strategic marketing, in other words no man in his right mind would consider popping one every morning for a month or more.|
With two exceptions, you're probably correct. I'll test almost anything non-toxic. I am willing to try lots and lots of products, but not two major procedures. No facelifts or Botox for me thank you very much. However a neck lift and injectable hyaluronic acid are still on the negotiating table as opposed to the operating table -- for now.
Why do I bring up this subject you may be wondering. Let me tell you. I am now swallowing a shiny pink pill every morning with a large glass of water (followed immediately by my effervescent multi-vitamin tablet and a separate vitamin E capsule) as I was saying, that -- are you ready for this (?) is 150 mgs. of hyaluronic acid. Yes, instead of the classic in your face -- literally -- injections into deep crevices I thought it would be "fun" to see what happens by this route.
Actually I didn't even know the product existed until my friend and pharmacist Christine presented me with the box. Our conversation:
Christine: Have I got something special for you!
Moi: I can barely still my beating heart.
C: I want you to do a cure with these pills I just bought for the pharmacy.
M: What? Now I'm some kind of lab experiment for you?
C: No, don't be silly. I know you love products and I thought of you when I ordered it.
M: Why did you think of me? Is it because you think I have wrinkles?
C: You're starting to annoy me.
M: Well, do you think I have serious wrinkles?
C: Here's the box, take the pills and report back.
M: Yes, but you're giving them to me because you really think I need them.
C: You don't need them. Just take them, OK?
M: OK, merci beaucoup.
|The other -- traditional -- way to take hyaluronic acid.|
I took my sixth pill this morning so it's way too early to see results. I'm glad she gave them to me because they ring in at 40 Euros which is a lot to spend on something that even she isn't sure works.
I'm completely ignoring a recent article in Elle which said that "probably" the only way hyaluronic acid works is when it is delivered by a syringe, not by a glass of water. I'm focusing on the word "probably" because you just never know. N'est-ce pas?
You do know I'll report back from the field.
