    Talking Preparation H use

    I'm getting ready for a photo-shoot (my first one; yikes!), and hope someone can explain to me how to utilize prep. H (god, i never thought I'd be asking anyone that) to appear as dry as possible...when should I start applying? Should I apply it to any and all areas of the body, or just to chest,arms,abs? how frequently? day of shoot only or should is start days in advance?

    I'm not positive on this one either.
    But I have a contest coming up.

    Look up the directions on cutting gel
    either on line or at your local sup shop.
    That should give you an idea.
    Use the Prep-H gel.
    I hear it smells much better than the ointment.
    Never quit!

    put it on an hour be4 the contest cause the results only last a few hours! I personally like to use my home brewed dandelion transdermal cream. It works wonders, but makes u pee like crazy lol.

    Also take dandelion orally and some glycerol (makes u look more cutt).

    This should help if u r at a low body fat %.

    If u wanted to know these r the ingredients for the cream:
    5 grams of dandelion root
    5 capfuls of rubbing alcohol
    (optional) tablespoon of prep H
    Alot of Pure Aloe Vera Gel(until desired thickness)

    hope this helps!

    anyone ever use hydrocortizone cream? It is the active ingredient in some forms of PrepH. I used it night b4 show and morning of show and it seemed to tighten my skin.

    I use Prep H starting 4 weeks out from a show and use it daily right up to the morning of the show. I put it where I happen to need tighter skin the most, ie. abs, biceps, etc...

    Can you use prep-h on your face to decrease water retention and give you a more chiseled look?

    I buy generic hydrocortisone 1% creme at Wal-Mart. I like it better than the prep h gel, and its cheaper. The effect is only temporary, and after a few days use, my skin gets to feeling kinda dry.

    I know it's late but here's my $.02

    I will only use preperation H during the 4 days prior to the show day. I also will only need as much as necessary and be sparing due to the decreased water intake the last few days.

    What I do if I need it. Before bed I will apply Prep H directly to the needed area. Then I wrap that area up with plastic wrap. You may wake up with wet sheets from sweating a lot but take a look in the morror.

    I definitely would use if BEFORE applying the tan. Like put it on the morning/day before the show.

    Why are you stressing?.. Is it just because you feel like you're retaining water or are you worried that you won't be ready? Are you cutting water? I would just keep chugging the water and keep flushing out your system.
    If it's to be it's up to me....

    "There is no such thing as a small miracle. A gym is a place of miracles. People do things they once thought impossible--lifting heavier, squeezing out one more rep, finding discipline and willpower they didn't know they had.

    Strong bump from '02. Kicking it old school with preperation H!! Nice. The active ingredient in preperation H that "supposedly" made you look drier is not longer in it. Might as well lather up with crisco, toothpaste, car wax, pancake syrup...... whatever you like. Who knows you might stumble on something new?

    Get lean........ dry comes along with it.

    Even the Canadian version with Biodyne is still crap. I tried it as an experiment on half my abs for an hour and the only thing it did was smell horrible. No way I would ever use that anywhere on my body for a comp.

    How long does it take for it to draw water from under the skin? where does the water go?

    Can someone explain how this works?
