Spots On, Spots Off (Almost. . .)

Aren't "liver" spotted Dalmatians adorable?

Last Friday, I did it. I had my hands iced. That is to say I had them dry iced by my dermatologist.

Remember? I told you it would be on my new year's calendar.

I know my dermatologist is great for a number of reasons -- think Eucerin -- but I had confirmation when I saw one of France's -- and the world's -- most famous actresses (French) leave her office as I entered. Her skin was makeup free and beautiful. I smiled. She smiled. And that was that.



At the moment, one week after the "procedure," my hands look quite awful as in the sun spots -- that's what they are I read recently so we can drop descriptives like "liver" and "age" from our vocabulary -- were much lighter than the post intervention results. Twice each day I slather my hands with A-Derma Epitheliale A.H. which is supposed to accelerate the healing process. As a result they are smooth and seem to be looking better every day.

Still, everyone including my dermatologist, said I won't see the results for another two weeks, i.e. total: three weeks from the day they were treated.


My, "I can't wait to wear them" rings from Splenderosa.

In anticipation of my new hands, I've ordered gorgeous rings from my great friend Marsha at the divinely elegant blog Splenderosa.

Tish, It is all those little things we do for ourselves that make feel even better!

I also would love to see pictures of the process...and I am really interested to see your "new"hands wearing these stunning rings!

Catherine Robinson said...

Oh, Tish...you've got me wondering who the actress is...Catherine by chance?
All sounds very interesting....would love to see the results too!
Have a great weekend.

I am really looking forward to seeing the rings on - they are totally gorgeous. I love big rings - I have a couple made by Tessa Fleischer who made Bishop Desmond Tutu's Crozier and Cross - they are very chunky but fab!

Perhaps our grand mothers had it right when they wore white gloves even during summer.

Have a great weekend

I'm afraid my love of the beach would prohibit me from this procedure. I have loved this series that you are doing!!

hopflower said...

Can't say I am wild about the rings (they are great if you like them), but the hands sound very appealing. I would like to see the finished result as well.

Hi Tish,
I do it every year, and yes, it's 3 weeks to really see the final results. So worth it.

BigLittleWolf said...

Well the rings are beautiful - and keep us posted on the results!

Lost in Provence said...

Hello there Tish! I am visiting family in the States so haven't been keeping up with your blog as much as usual--posts like this make me panic and wonder what I have been missing out on! My hands look older than the rest of me after several years of intense sun exposure when I was travelling so much. Nothing that I have tried has helped. I too would be so grateful for a "before" and "after" if you are up for it!

Normally at this point I would be wondering, first, when I could get my hands done and, second, what are the chances I could get the Splenderosa ring with the turquoise stones. But really I'm just thinking about my attack of separation anxiety, knowing you're going to be going away lots now. I know the book will be worth it. I keep the anxiety down thinking about that, and how you may just be able to somehow to keep up such a good level of guest bloggers for us. You see, you've spoiled us with good posts -- and temptations like that ring...

Virginia said...

I just found your blog and can't wait to read more. Girl, I'm of a CERTAIN age and it's not 40 or 50. Quelle dommage. Oh well, I think one of those rings might help my attitude.
Bon weekend,

V

The enchanted home said...

Interesting......I always learn the most interesting things from you! And love the rings!! They are gorgeous...and I agree she has such beautiful things!

Carol said...

Wonderful rings to wear on your brand new hands Tish. Can't wait to hear how your hands look in a couple more weeks.

S. said...

So exciting to see.

Love

Don't suppose your dermatologist knows any experts in London??

coffeeaddict said...

the rings are gorgeous :-)
hoping you'll be able to wear them very very soon!

Susan Tiner said...

Well Tish, it seems I've caught up on your blog!

I'm so happy about your book project.

We're off to London and Paris, returning March 24, then getting married a couple weeks after that, so I won't be around for awhile but look forward to catching up with your blog in May. Meanwhile, I wish you a good night's sleep every night and great progress on your book. xoxo

Tish Jett said...

Thank you Susan. And what spectacular, happy news. I'll look forward to your updates.

Thank you everyone.

Regarding the actress whom I passed going out as I was going into my dermatologist's office, I feel as if it would be an egregious invasion of her privacy if I told you her name. I'll tell you this, it was not Catherine Deneuve -- now, no more guessing.

"A-Derma Epitheliale A.H" is one of the best option for removing age spots.
