Dr. Oz Skin Test--heh!

They're repeating a Dr. Oz show on "9 Days to a Younger Looking You" right now, and I did the tape test and, though I'm 50, the tape looked like the tv example of "age 30". No lines. No skin cells. Clean, smooth tape. Hah. The tape can't see the effects of GRAVITY.

But it still made me happy. Hee.

    What is the tape test? I didn't see it on the link.

    I read it on the link. I'm afraid to try it. :tongue10:

    Seriously, wouldn't a smudge show up on the tape no matter what you stuck it to? I can't imagine it coming out perfectly clear. I'm going to tape my grandchildren this weekend before I do myself.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    Oh, I found it.
    You're supposed to be able to see skin cells?
    I just tried a piece of tape between my eyes (and I'm at work :lol: but we're all crazy here so nobody asks) and I didn't see anything.
    I don't want to do my eyes and cheeks because that'll take my sun protective moisturizer off!

    I've been able to see 'skin cells' since my teens and still do. I chalk it up to oily skin. I don't think aging plays much into it seeing that I could see cells while still in puberty.

    I'm as oily now as I was in my teens...I don't think my tape would look very good...it'd be all oily. My skin is smooth though. Very smooth.

    I think the tape test thing is nonsense.
