[YEA] 08/10/2007: Shai from New York , NY: "I thought i might add my few cents to all the wonderful formulas for beauty and longevity at this most generous site. After my mother and brother passed away from cancer i begain to have chronic eczema/psoriasis hair loss and depression. I decided to investigate into superfood and longevity herbs and adaptogens. I was also obsessed with skin remedies in order to reverse my overactive immune system. I remember how i got this problem, using chemical hair remover for my arms and legs NAIR. ai threw out all chemicals from my home. I did cleanses parasite, liver kidney and digestive, and begain to take everyday cod liver oil, fish oil, flaxseed oil Udo's blend, blackseed oil borage and evening primrose oil. For skin, only pure essential oil from a trusted brand. I use pure helychrisum everlasting as a face oil. Once or twice a week i steam my face with a few drops of essential oil, follow with healing bentonite clay mixed with apple cider vinegar. I never use soap for my face, i cleanse my face pure pearl powder and egg white, or amla and sandalwood powder(mild astringent). Yes i do use tons of coconut oil and helychrysum at night. I have been using coconut oil, shea butter and helyschysum on my whole body for years. Its the sexiest perfume on earth! I am in my late thirties, i have two kids eleven and ten, I weigh 100 lbs. and my indian skin has a perfect tan all year round so i dont need to ever sunbathe. Lots of sleep. Lots of green and white tea, i drink gymnostemna, eat royal jelly, bee pollen, raw honey and pop some rhodiola and goji berries for good measure... the E3live and chllorella with cilantro takes care of detoxification :a clean digestion, and you have an unbeatable fountain of youth. By the way, New Chapter, a very expensive supplement company using only whole food concentrates, contains as a base: turmeric, ginger cumin coriander in almost every formula, but this is the basic combination to every dish we cook. Simple Sattvic indian food contains this stuff for a fraction of the cost every day. Eat less, drink tea, and get lots of sleep and lots of love. These are the anti-cancer regimen. peace and joy to your heart and health is all the wealth."
[YEA] 04/03/2007: Keerati from Bangkok, Thailand: "This is more of a beauty experience. I am a college students and once in a while, I ran out of money to buy expensive face cream, so i tried this extra virgin coconut oil that i bought ages ago (for my hair)...on my face. and WOW...my skin was glowing. i have oily/ acne prone skin but it doesn't irritate me. in fact, i've cut down the expenses such as face cream, toner, hair mask, makeup remover, body lotion, foot lotion, hand cream etc. WOW!...that's a lot of saving..with just one jar of coconut oil!"
[YEA] 01/28/2007: Jamie from Van Nuys, CA: "Dry skin be gone!! I love this site, and I love testimonials. i am a sucker for them, for better or worse, and have bought many a useless thing based on them. But I am SO SO SO happy to say that this time it actually came true for me! After reading all the great stuff on the site, I bought some Virgin coconut oil. I have fairly dry skin (and always issues with acne and hating my skin) and I have religiously applied a good, natural vitamin A and E lotion everyday after showers for a long time, etc. do all the "lock in moisture" tips... but I still had dry skin, also felt tight no matter what, never that dewy, glowing thing you hear about all the time from really expensive lotions and creams. oh my god thank god for coconut oil!! i am in love with it. I have used it maybe 3 or 4 days now, all over my body and any flakiness is GONE. gone!! yay! my hands are very dry because I work with them, but when I take the time to rub in the oil it keeps it from cracking at least. I know if I am more diligent I might actually feel like I don't have man hands! ha. The best thing is when I used it for a stir fry! holy cow, in love all over again. I mean, I really do feel like I glow like an 'island beauty' when I put it on, it melts so nicely and thin and silky on body temperature, and I am a redhead so anything that helps me feeling smooth and less mottled is a godsend. honestly, i am silk, not grease. even when it goes on it's not like oil, it's bliss. I'm a little overwhelmed with how/if to take it internally, along with all the ACV, molasses, hydrogen peroxide stuff... i don't want to bombard my body.. Any suggestions on how to prioritize which of these I ingest/get in a good steady routine? Or if it's harmful to be eating coconut oil AND all this other stuff? is it too much? regardless, for dry skin coconut oil is THE WAY TO GO. hands down. OH! also feels so so nice on my face. I was worried I'd break out but so far so good. I actually, finally (sob) feel RIGHT in my skin. hasn't been so for a long time. my face actually feels lubricated, I have been stunned the past night or two that I put it on my face to realize that it feels healthy from the inside, which is literally unreal and a blessing. my self image has improved from outside, inside out! Not too be too dramatic, but I really finally feel like I can say I'm a beautiful woman, because my skin FEELS fresh, healthy and also looks it. thank you!!!"
[YEA] 01/11/2007: Krystal from Memphis, TN: "I began using coconut oil on my hair and body and it is awesome. My skin is so soft. After I take my ACV bath or spray my body down with ACV after a shower, I wait until I am completely dry and rub my body down with the coconut oil. It is so good to my skin I can't help but to rub my own face and body! I began putting it around my dry cuticles; letting the oil soak in and can you believe my cuticle look awesome. I put it on my lips and let the oils soak in to make my lips softer. I don't need chap stick. I have coconut oil. I use a little on my hair and oil my scalp with it. I am going to experiment with taking it internally. I have read the comments about taking to much so I am going to start off slow. Natural products are awesome. Why don't we use what God intended! Nature! Vegetation & herbs! I love nature!"
[YEA] 01/07/2007: Lisa from Bangkok, Thailand: "I ingest pure virgin coconut oil twice per day. I used to have dry scaly skin. I tried the most expensive lotion brands: Loccitane, Origins, Bath & Body Works -- but nothing made my skin shiny and smooth. After two weeks of ingesting coconut oil and using externally my skin began to shine! My boyfriend couldn't stop touching me and everyone thought I was pregnant because my skin glowed. I am an African-American so we notoriously suffer from dry skin but now I have beautiful skin and because I live in Thailand I have access to some of the best oil around at good prices. The only mild reactions I had was gas which I took gas pills for."Replies
01/31/2010: Sultana from Birmingham, Uk replies: "Hi. Recently i have been suffering from really dry sensitive skin. I don't normally have this problem but iv been coming out with noticable dry red patches on my face. I have tried everything, but nothing is working. Iv started coconut oil, taking it internally and externally but iv found that it dries up really quickly. The rest of my skin is looking great but the patches are still dry and red. Maybe im using it wrong? for anyone else who has sensitive dry skin, please could you give me some advise on applying coconut oil. i really don't want to give up on it... thank you. x"
02/02/2010: Dianna from Austin, Tx replies: "depending on your body and the climate where you live - coconut oil may not work well for very dry sensitive skin.
coconut oil is a cooling oil - meaning that it feels cooling to the skin and very dry skin needs more warming type oils.
try another oil - castor oil would be great, even extra virgin olive oil, or if you can find some cold pressed sesame oil that would be great too.
if you want to keep using the coconut oil i would suggest to supplement its use by adding some castor oil either mixed in or on top of it.
castor oil is also anti fungal and anti-inflammatory.
coconut oil only works for me in the warm weather. if i use it when it is cold here my skin seems to actually get drier and shrink up!
however in the summer it works great!!! oh and you could also try warming up your coconut oil too.
02/03/2010: Sultana from Birmingham, Uk replies: "thank you very much for a reply, I will try warming the coconut oil. Don't really want to try anything else as iv tried so many things and getting fed up now. What ive been doing is washing my face with warm water, applying vco then putting a warm damp flannel on my face. I leave that on for a couple of seconds then apply another layer of coconut oil. after a bit it still dries up but not as bad as before. I am slowly seeing a difference with coconut oil, its better than the other creams but I guess I'm just going to have to be patient. I have taking atleast 3tbsp a day with a glass of warm milk and definately noticed a difference. my hairloss has reduced and my gums aren't as sensitive as they used to be. Can I ask what brands are good?"

[YEA] 01/12/2008: gabi from toronto, canada: "re: good skin after 50. I love to read your remedies. They are very useful. I have a few for skin (face). For all kinds of acnes or boils and blemishes the best and always working is "silver water". Apply only once over affected area and give it up to 3 days. The worst boil will die!. I use colloidal silver water in spray bottle. The best bottle is after hair spray (very fine spray/mist). Another tip is using fresh lemon juice to moisturize. It works also better than the best scrubbing cream, Removes skin discolorations! I also drink fresh lemon juice every day. My skin is even, smooth and has good elasticity. PH balance is perfect and I never have any colds or flu! During winter I use coconut oil and sometimes neem oil on problem areas. I started WATER CURE2 and it makes big difference! I am going to try black strap molasses and ACV. Does anybody know receipe for enema with black strap molasses? Is wonderful to help bad constipation. It helps when doctor has no other advice than "digital treatment"! It is: 3 tbs per one glass of lukewarm water. Is safe and very beneficial because of mineral contents. I am collecting home remedies with the idea to put all of them together in a book. It you have anything simple and easy to do or use, not expensive, please email me! Thank you"Replies

Cow Udder Cream
[YEA] 03/18/2007: John from Erie, PA: "There is a century old balm used by farmers that is absolutely amazing for the skin. Although farmers use it on cow udders, it's healing powers for humans is hard to beat. I had a cut that I was putting Neosporin on for weeks and it was just not healing. After applying the "Bag Balm" on it for 3 days the cut is almost completely healed. It works wonders on burns, cuts, dry chapped skin, etc. You can find this Bag Balm in the pet section of any grocery store for about $5. It lasts forever too."
[YEA] 12/09/2009: Auset from Northern California, California Usa: "Beautiful Skin
I had been using a 22 dollar natural chamomile cream on my face. I am 42 and take heavy medication for an autoimmune disorder. Btwn the meds and age, I was beginning to wrinkle. I do a lot of computer work and am into natural healing and looked up natural eye relief remedies for strained eyes. Cucumber came up and I also saw that wrinkle creams use cucumber extract. So, I decided to slice off 1/2 inch cucumber circle and rub it on my face as well as my eyes. I rubbed both sides of the cucumber circle all over my face til it was soggy and limp. It was an instant oil free moisturizer! My face has always been oily and the least bit of oil in something clogged my pores. I have dry parts on my face as well. Not any more! My skin absolutely glows, is super smooth and looks young. The wrinkles have been lessening and it's been about i month. I do this 2 to 3 times a day and the more I do it, the better my skin looks. I am African American and have uneven skin tone and it is evening out my dark eye circles. I dont even use the cream any more and just spend a 1.00 or two for naturally beautiful skin."Replies
12/11/2009: Patricia from Sanford, Fl replies: "I will definitely try this, Auset! I have Lupus, so my face will break out in a rash occasionally, and when it dries up my skin is very flakey and tender. Tell me....how long do you leave the cucumber "juice" on your skin before rinsing?"
03/06/2011: Naturally_me from Potlatch, Idaho, 83855 replies: "Does the cucumber work to reduce under eye bags? I have been using white tea, and I soak coffee filters in a jar of tea leaves and tea, then I remove a filter and apply it to my face for a few minutes. Then, everytime I go to the bathroom, I take a Qtip and swab my face with the tea and then apply coconut oil to my face, gently massaging under my eyes. I leave the coconut oil on all day, it absorbs in to the skin as long as you do not apply to thick of a coat! I recently began Oil Pulling with Virgin coconut oil as well. I am starting to notice a difference but it seems like it is a temporary improvement so far, (my bags seem to return. It could be because I just started all this and it will work over time. The rest of my face feels great, just under my eyes is what I struggle with at this point.
Note: I do think my bags under my eyes are brought on by smoking and prescription medicine, and stress. I also drink apple cider vinegar with a quarter tsp. of baking soda, water and honey. Does anyone know if this will turn in to a permanent solution for dark under eye circles?"
[YEA] 09/06/2012: Anon from Anon: "Take Curamin (a strong anti-inflamatory) and milk thistle (protects the liver), a B complex, C, A, E, and then do some vigorous exercise, take an hour long walk or run or bike, etc. to get your blood moving and oxygenated. I did that the other day and my face looked like it was glowing like it was made of glass."
[YEA] 04/03/2007: Mila from Sacramento, California: "I tried essential oils, more specifically, rosemary and coriander oils, for my blackheads and active acne, and a miracle happened with my face. Here is how I do it: at night I wash my face first if i have makeup on with my regular camphor based cleanser, then about an hour later i heat up a huge pot of water, and hold my face above the steam for about 10-15 minutes, i also cover my head with a big towel, so the heat does not escape. The steam helps open up the pores and let the toxins out. Then I take a shower and rinse my face off oil and toxins. After i get out i pat my face dry and apply coriander and rosemary oil mixed together. It's been a couple of weeks, and my face has cleared up so much, I am amazed. There are other things I do too, like drinking less caffeine and eating less sugar ,taking flax and omega 3,6,9 oils, also praying to God( I'm a christian), and my skin has been great. It doesn't get congested anymore, it's color is more healthy and even, I am absolutely amazed. I am 22, so I know acne at my age is an internal problem, so I recommend to anybody the essential oils(coriander and rosemary), but also checking your diet, some foods cause your skin to congest and breakout. Hope this helps)) I think I'll be using essential oils now,for me they've been more effective and a lot less expensive than facials and pretty much all brand name products i've tried in my life, and trust me i've wasted thousands of dollars on lotions, facials, cremes, etc. God bless you, and hope you find this comment helpful."
[YEA] 01/23/2007: Toma from Chicago, IL: "If you want to have wrinkle free skin, then don't eat meat, diary products, sugar, and mashed potatoes. no pillows around the face. lose weight and don't gain. Take the following vitamins to have good skin : A, C, D, E, and B-complex. To avoid wrinkles you should wear sunglasses and hat in the sun and use sunscreen every time when go outside (reapply every 2 hours)."
Dry Brushing, Oil
11/08/2010: Jane from Durham, Oregon, Usa: "I stopped using soap of any kind, anywhere on my body and prior to shower I use natural bristle brush and in circular motions, start from feet and work my way up to chest. For Women chest and face are tender so use natural sponge. It sloughs old skin cells and I moisturize after with Cosmetic use, Sweet Almond oil and my skin is looking better day by day and skin feels exstremly clean and soft. I am 55 so my skin is looking less attractive than my youth. I am a proponant of only USA made products (start to finish)so I had to look at labels. Unfortunate challenge but I persevere."

05/09/2011: Heaven from Plano, States: "i had been experiencing large pores , due to my very oily skin. what i used was very simple and you normally always have in the home. plain ole eggs- i would make sure that the egg is beat very well and apply it on my skin usually every other day. cleanse the skin throughly first i use a soap that is made by black opal which exfoliates- i love it so much i have to refrain from using it daily and it helps with blemishes and oily skin. and , yes u will feel the skin tightening as it starts to dry."
