Jackie End, photographed once every five years for the last two decades.
I was dining out at Steak Frites the other night with some C/D alums, one of whom was the everlastingly lovely Jackie End. I accused Jackie of having some sort of pact with the devil goin' on, because she looks as youthful as ever. We all begged to know her beauty secrets and I asked her to email them to me. Here's what Jackie uses ...
Natrol Alpha Lipoic Acid - 300 mg. capsules - one or two a day. good for skin and weight loss.
Solgar Co Q-10 - 100 mg. Softgels one or two a day. helps prevent aging. combats effects of smoking.
Natrol Green Tea - 500 mg. good anti-oxidant. acts as a diuretic.
Solgar Natural Vitamin E - 400 IU softgels - one a day.
Natrol Melatonin - 1 mg. tablets (don't go above this) take before bed. excellent anti-oxidant also said to prevent aging.
Taking a B complex and a C complex is good, too.
Wash your face (it's best if you really get soaked so I usually do it after an evening shower.) While your face is still wet, smear Vaseline all over. Blot your face with tissues. Actually just stick tissues all over your face and then peel them off. Then go to sleep. If you've got really nice bed linens you should use an old pillowcase when you do this.
The name of the hydroxy I've been using - Paul Begoun Beta Hydroxy 2% - the lotion, not the gel. The Paula Begoun stuff is sooo much less expensive and since she's the original debunker of the costmetics industry she tends to keep things simple.
Also, check out physioage.com. I now take bioidentical hormones which is hormone replacement compounded specifically for the results of your blood tests. You have to take blood tests every 3 months for the first year then just once a year. I've never felt better. Even if you're not interested the downloadable info on the site is excellent.
