    Loved the episode. Loved the tips. Can we find out what sweater/top she’s wearing in this photo?

    This was an interesting listen, especially the bit where Jean was talking about her heavy upper lids. I always had hooded lids and they looked perfectly nice when I was younger, however as I was getting through my 50’s my eyes were starting to look small and tired. Four years ago I had upper and lower blepheroplasty and I’m so glad I did. It’s taken years off my face and I look way more rested and open eyed. The other thing I have been doing since then is using a NuFACE mini for five minutes most days. It has really improved my jaw line and plumped up my cheeks. I recently met up with a friend who hadn’t seen me before the eye surgery and NuFACE and he said, I don’t know what you’ve been doing but you look about ten years younger than when I last saw you, so there you go! Funny thing was I’d forgotten that I hadn’t seen him since then so I started going on about how it must be my exercise regime and having grown my hair long. He probably thinks I have Botox and fillers which I don’t!

      Sue, thx for sharing your experience. I’ve been considering a lower bleph for 15 years and an upper for 5 (I’m 59). One of these days I’m going to pull the trigger!

        Hi Lisa, I’m 60 now and I look pretty youthful partly due to my eyes looking more open. Lower bleph seems to be such a successful surgery with much lower downtime than upper (I had a lot of swelling with my surgeon seemed to think it was my fault! ) but the upper does make a big difference. I would say just allow for a bit longer of a healing period than they say and you’ll be fine. I’m so glad I did mine and it’s so much more ‘natural’ looking than trying to achieve the same effect with fillers and Botox. Go for it!

      I meant to say the friend hadn’t seen me since before I’d had the surgery and used the Nuface. Sorry if that was confusing!

    Great show!
    Kim, I also had issues with irritation from retinol, even though my skin is not sensitive in general. I read an article indicating that adaptalene, as found in Differin gel, was a gentle, but effective form of vitamin A. We happened to have Differin gel in the house because my teen son uses it for acne. I’ve been using it for a few months and think it’s a good option. Definitely not irritating! So, now my son and I share a tube. How middle aged (smh)! Also have a reco on unruly hair — Kristin Ess soft shine grooming creme. It also gives you good second day hair. It has changed how I feel about my long quarantine hair — I was going to cut it off before I discovered this product. SO GOOD!
