Long before face-lifts were common-place in Hollywood, actress Marlene Dietrich used to plaster on surgical tape to tuck away any excess skin.  Those were the days when Hollywood makeup artists put tape in key places to lift a sagging jawline or droopy eyelids, as part of making their stars “camera-ready.”   In addition, studios encouraged their actresses to wear something called Wrinkle Eradicators – basically patches to temprarily erase furrowed brows and crows-feet.  Actresses from Olivia de Havilland to Gloria Swanson (who used them in Sunset Boulevard) ordered them by the case load to always be ready for the close-up.

Well…that old Hollywood glamour isn’t lost.  The company  Frownies, that originally created the Wrinkle Eradicators, now has an entire line of anti-aging products.  However, the original wrinkle-reducing patches still remain a staple in Hollywood, with actresses such as Rene Russo and Raquel Welch using them regularly.  They look like brown paper, but you moisten one side and place it to your forehead for four hours, or ideally overnight.  There are also patches for crows feet, eye wrinkles and marionette lines too.   By smoothing and plumping the skin, wrinkles are diminished when you remove the patch, and after prolonged use, muscles are gradually “reminded” not to contract.

    I’ve heard of frownies and always thought they would be very cool to try….such a great opportunity. I’ve not had a face lift “yet”…but I’ve had my share of Radiesse…which may I say, works GREAT for those lines between your nose and your mouth.
    Again…thanks for offering up the BEST swag in town!

    I can’t find the name of the charity Frownies supports does anyone know?

  13. Article writing is also a fun, if you know after that you can write if not it is complicated to write.

  14. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution
    and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then
    most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
