Perhaps you have heard about Molly the pony. The short version of her story is that she was abandoned by her owners when Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana and it was weeks before Molly was taken to a farm for lost/abandoned animals. While there, she was attacked by a pit bull. Her gnawed right front leg became infected, and as a last resort, the farm's owner (Kay) contacted LSU and asked for help.

Remember that at the time there were limited services, literally thousands of animals who also needed help, and because Molly was near death, the logical answer to Kay's request would have been a simple "no". But when surgeon Rustin Moore met Molly the pony, he saw something remarkable. He saw how Molly would roll over regularly when laying down to avoid getting pressure sores.  He saw that Molly allowed people to handle her, while carefully protecting her injured leg and that when standing, she shifted her weight so as to avoid  overloading her "good" legs. Molly had what my cowboy friends call "try"... she wouldn't quit, and she did everything she could do to help herself.

Mollys' infected leg was amputated just below her knee, and when the temporary artificial limb was attached, Molly stood up and walked painfully but triumphantly out of the clinic.  Later, a human prosthesis designer built her an even better artificial limb, which Molly uses with great skill. When she wants it on, she holds out her limb to Kay, and when she wants it off, she makes that clear too. Molly wouldn't be alive, much less walking and trotting and clearly thriving, if it weren't for the dedicated care provided by Kay, and their bond is amazing.

Kay takes Molly to shelters, hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers; anywhere that people need hope. Wherever Molly goes, she inspires people to work with what they have and do everything possible to help themselves.

So what does Molly the pony have to do with Truth in Aging?  When you work with what you have and do what you can to help yourself along the way....just like Molly did... you just might be surprised with the results!

In early February, the nice people at Cellular Skin RX sent me a small sample of their C+ Firming Serum and a 30-day sample of the Supermax Multi-peptide Skin Solution. The combination has absolutely made a difference on my aging, sun damaged skin, and in just one month.  I was already using a fantastic niacin-based facial moisturizer (which I continued to use) but the combination of the two Cellular Skin RX products have noticeably brightened, softened, and firmed my skin.

Twice daily I apply the combination on clean dry skin starting with the C+ Firming Solution. The C+ Firming Serum contains 12% concentration of stabilized Vitamin C in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid which is an extremely effective form of Vitamin C and the form of C which is most easily absorbed by the skin. (Note: For a great tutorial on Vitamin C, see the posting by Claire dated February 26th.)  According to Cellular Skin Rx, "The 12% concentration of L-Ascorbic Acid in the C + Firming Serum is formulated at a lower ph to ease absorption. It is suspended in a simple stabilizing solution to maintain the effectiveness of the Vitamin C over time". A few minutes later I smooth on the SuperMax Multi-Peptide solution which includes six powerful peptides in a hyaluronic acid base: pentapeptide 3 and palmitoyl oligopeptides (Matrixyl 3000), palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3 , tripeptide, acetyl hexapeptide-3, and acetyl glutamyl heptapeptide-1.  It works well under makeup, and makes my skin positively glow when left au natural.

At night I also apply my regular niacin-based moisturizer over all this, but I live in Arizona and am out in drying elements all day long. The results are already terrific, and seem to be compounding with regular use. I am going to beg the manufacturer for a sample of their Relax Plus with Vialox (akin to a topical botox) to see how that works on some deep horizontal lines across my forehead, but the finer lines and the crows feet are clearly in retreat.

This is powerful stuff. Be SURE to wear a good sun block when using these products.... my newly minted epidermis seems to be more sensitive to the sun rays than before, and, just like Molly, I need to do everything I can to help myself and foster this great new skin, compliments of Cellur Skin RX.

    Glad you liked the intro, and I hope you like the product as well as I do.

    Re: free samples...I don't believe they are making it available, but I will be happy to check. If they are willing, I will get in touch with Marta and she will let everyone know the details. That being said, you can purchase it easily from their website.

    The manufacturer lists only "Ingredients that Work™: L-Ascorbic Acid and Other Ingredients: Butylene Glycol" for the C+ serum.

    The Supermax peptide lists only the following: Active Ingredients that Work™: Seaweed Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Acetyl Hexapeptide 3, Pentapeptide 3, Tripeptide, Acetyl Glutamyl Heptapeptide -1, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3 , and Other Ingredients: Distilled Water, Phenonip, Ethylhexylglycerin

    Does that help?

    Great post! I wondered where you were going with the Molly story but it worked. How inspiring...And you definitely make me want to try the product. Do you know if the manufacturer is willing to provide samples or discounts to TIA readers/contributors?
