Sandra Bullock: Hemorrhoid Cream Makes Ya Pretty!

From IMDB Celebrity News

Sandra Bullock is touting a bizarre facial beauty treatment these days - hemorrhoid cream. The brunette beauty discovered the unorthodox use for the medicated ointment while making movie Miss Congeniality, in which she plays an undercover FBI agent who has to transform herself into a beauty queen to prevent an act of terrorism. Sandra, 36, explains, "I didn't realise that putting hemorrhoid ointment on your face is acceptable in the beauty business. But apparently butt-cream does help the lines around the eyes. That's the important tip I learned. In fact, in all my acting days that is the most astounding piece of information I've ever heard."

Hardly news, Liberace was using Preparation H for years as a temporary wrinkle remover.

I don't know if this is an urban legend but I have been told that in certain cities (I don't know which ones) there is an epidemic of people shoplifting hemorrhoid cream to soothe and shrink cocaine swollen nasal membranes.

Whenever I hear the story it has all the earmarks of an urban legend in that a "friend of a cousin of mine told me..."

i've heard this for quite a while now..many books/magazines/tv shows but i've always been too embarassed to goto the store and actually buy any! it's also good on pimples - zaps the swelling right down & eliminates redness.  as i said though, just too embarassed to actually buy it.

When I lived in San Francisco in the 60's, I knew a lot of drag queens that used the cream to get rid of the wrinkles and lines in their faces.   A word of caution, don't get it in your eyes.  Also, it only lasts for a short span of time. Usually just a couple of hours.

Razzle-------------never had to use it myself,  no really I didn't.

I have heard this exact same thing in some tv movie or show - can't remember which -  where this wannabe model told another one to use Preparation H under her eyes for bags.

I've also heard that clay cat litter (unused of course!) is a good clay mask...at least that is what my friend swore by.  I remembered the first time I saw her mixing the stuff -- I gasped when she pulled out the litter bag, scooped a handful out and added water to it.  It dissolved and then she put it on her face!  But I'm not brave enough to do that...

This is NOT a new trick. I've known about it for a long time. Makes me think that Sandra Bullock is full of hooey when saying, that in Hollywood (of all places!), this was news to her. I think what she's really trying to say is, "Oh, dear, I didn't know about it because I didn't NEED it before now."  BS

A friend tried it during a recent bout of sinunitis for the bags under her eyes. She said it worked minimally and she repeated the caveat about "don't get it in your eyes."

Volfie -> she said the redness and irritation from trying to wash it out of her eyes was far worse than the bags she started with

I've heard that Preparation H no longer uses the active ingredient that is most effective for this purpose and you have to buy lesser known brands that have that certain ingredient. Unfortunately, I can't remember what that ingredient is, I had the information on my last computer. It's in files I need to transfer some day when I get a monitor for it. (It's a Mac, the monitor suddenly died and I replaced it with an iMac, so I couldn't just hook up the new monitor as it's build into the iMac.)

    I've heard that this is one of the most frequently shoplifted items in drugstores.  I thought it was the embarassment factor!  Maybe they should market it as a multipurpose product - we used it on a cat after he had surgery to make him more comfortable and not pull at the stitches (vet's suggestion).

Laugh if you want - it really works.  Women have been doing this for years and years.  Prep H kills baggy, puffy eyes in no time.

The ingredient that used to make this happen with Prep H has been removed from the product. It's been at least 2 years since they changed the formula at the request of the FDA. Apparently the ingredient actually penetrated the skin, entered the bloodstream and caused some people to have heart attacks.

Isn't it funny how you'll try out things you've learned or heard of on AGC? My husband will ask "Where'd you hear about that?" while I'm trying something and I just go "Oh.....it's a *long* story!"

shoplifted items in drugstores.

From  Do Pharmacists Sell Farms? by Vince Staten (1998, Simon & Schuster) The five most stolen items in a drugstore are batteries, cosmetics, film, sunglasses, and, get this, Preparation H.� Apparently people are just too embarrassed to purchase the last item.� And, just in case you are curious, one of Preparation H's main ingredient is shark liver oil.� The oil not only helps shrink hemorrhoids, but will shrink any tissue.� As a result, many older women in Florida use the stuff to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles! �

When i was quite young, i heard of female celebrities using PH around their eyes---it swells up the skin with the wrinkles and thus hides them from view.

It has been documented that this stuff is extremely unhealthy and can irritate the eyes to the point of requiring medical treatment.

It seems as though people (particulary the rich and famous) will do almost anything to look younger, regardless of what the outcome might be down the road.

Face it, Bullock and others: You're gonna get older and you're gonna get wrinkles---deal with it for crying out loud. It's pathetic.

Brandy - we'll trust that you are interested in temporary erasing wrinkles and not interested in doing someone in with a heart attack.  : )

I can't remember the ingredient, but there was a discussion about this on alt.fashion a year or two ago. They said then that some of the cheaper brands used this ingredient still. (I think it was shark something, but I'm not positive.) Perhaps if you inquire there, someone will know.
