Default My Chest Wrinkles Disappeared.....

I've been using a new product, plus cleaning with the castor oil & sunflower oil. My face & neck look the same, but I noticed this morning that my chest is almost completely smooth. I'm shocked. I wish my face & neck would have the same reaction. I'm not sure what is working on this area. I'm hoping it's the oils, because the product I've been using is expensive.

I use Retin-A on my chest every night. It's really faded the "ring" wrinkle I had on my upper chest.

For me it's more like sheet wrinkles you wake up to in the morning, but they don't go away.

I'm trying an experiment tonight. After cleansing my skin with oils & using the expensive product, I'm putting the oils on my face, neck, & chest. I'm hoping I will see results, because I really don't want to buy more of this expensive product.

Yeah, come on lotsa! That's no fair to rave about some new, incredible, mystery wrinkle remover, and then not spill the beans.

Hey, I don't even know if it's the new product. It's not working on my face & neck.

It's called #37-C. It's $159 for a 30 day supply, so it's not something I would like to have to keep up. I'm going to return the empty bottle after 30 days for my money back. If I was having the same results on my face & neck I would find a way to afford this product.

haha, sheet wrinkles! I know just what you mean. I have started using Retin-A on the upper chest area, but it hasn't been long enough to see any results.

Glad to know I'm not the only one with sheet wrinkles.

I've never heard of it, but it does sound interesting. I'll check it out.

Well, my sheet wrinkles are back. I haven't been using the oils, so that may be the problem. I got lazy.

Here's my view on all this....I can use all the expensive products that are suppose to remove fine lines, etc, but they seem to make my skin more dry and my lines are more pronounced. I think, with me, I just need a lot of moisture and oil on my dry skin.

I've just started taking off my make-up and cleansing my face with olive oil and using Crisco shortening as my moisturizer. I do this at night. My make-up would be sliding off my face if I did it in the morning. I'm also adding good oil in my diet (flaxseed oil & omega 3 vitamins.) Time will tell.

Default Chest wrinkles treatment

I tried all kind of cosmetics to get rid of my chest wrinkles. I stumbled upon Intimia chest pillow at Intimia by accident while searching the internet. I'd used it for a while and my wrinkles had slowly disappeared. Just be aware it has to be worn every night in order to maintain a wrinkle free cleavage. Good luck...

My chest wrinkles are entirely due to sleeping on my side. Am just trying to moisturize and re-train myself to sleep on my back. Should have done it 20 yrs ago!

I'm not sure how I sleep at night. I start out on my tummy or side, but when the alarm goes off I can never remember how I was laying. Hopefully on my back. I have a pillow that will help me stay on my back, but I forget to use it. I now mix up olive oil, peanut oil, and lanolin and use this all over after my bath at night. I use retin-a in the morning on my neck and chest. Not looking too bad. I'm thinking of getting a peel. My daughter has a friend who is an esthetician.

I tried to train myself to sleep on my back - it didn't work. I continue sleeping on my side, but with Intimia pillow my breasts are separated and I don't need to think about sleeping on my back. Amazingly, it stays on no matter how many times I turn. It's very comfortable.

I thought I heard retin-a should only be used at night because it makes your skin more sensitive to the sun. And also that it is common for skin to look worse (dry n more wrinkled) before it gets better. Not sure, but thought I heard that.

Call me crazy, but sometimes when my between-eyebrow furrows get bad at night (from either sleeping on the side of my face or frowning in my sleep) I put a small square of clear medical tape between my brows to keep the skin from folding.

Wonder if you could do the same on your chest?? About 3 - 4 inches of medical (not at sticky) tape to keep the skin taut at night.

This was a complete disaster for me.

What worked was Botox, and then when that faded, wearing bangs.

The Chest Saver does work really good I have been using mine for a couple years and I'm pretty happy with it.
