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

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.

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.

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?

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?

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.

Dear Valentina, Was very intriqued with your post on earth clinic. How you have remained so young looking and no menopause yet. I think it is wonderful. Could you please tell me what you eat for breakfast? lunch ? (probably your salads {with cottage cheese sometimes}), also what do you eat for dinner? This no grains, rice or beans would be hard, that is my main diet here in mexico but my health is not so good and I am seeking other avenues. Hoping you can find the time to answer.

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.

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  

Posted by Jane (Durham, Oregon, Usa) on 11/08/2010

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.

Eating avocados improves your skin due to the natural oils present in the fruit. Try it, and in a few days you'll notice the difference.

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.

After cleansing your face, put egg whites on the face. It may seem gooey and gross but after it dries you take it off by gently patting the face with a damp towel and the skin is dramatically softer.

How often can you use the egg white?

Egg whites are incredible for your skin! (mind you don't have a food allergy to them)
Apply to your face and neck at night (dries pretty fast) and wash off in the AM. For daytime use, Mix the egg white with a little water. It's clear and dries without flaking. Best beauty tip from grandma EVER! :)

I stopped using fluoride toothpaste and changed to an aluminum-free deoderant last year and my skin problems have improved dramatically!

Since introduced to this site, i have eliminated chemicals wherever possible. first, i stopped all anti-aging products on face and got rid of fluoride toothpaste. i cleanse with bkg soda and use jaboba oil or vegetable gycerine with drop of essential oil for moisturizer sometimes castor oil around the eyes.use minimal amt of non animal tested pressed powder blush and eyeliner. i indeed look younger and soft and my eyesight has improved. i think the antiaging products might be absorbed into the eye itself or into the blood vessels. any thoughts on this? my skin is much better.

I just had lunch with my best friend who is 65, I am 48 and her skin looks younger than mine!! :( I asked her what her skin care regimen involved, and this is it. She doesn't wear any makeup what so ever, believe me she doesn't need to; she has great skin. She said she'd be embarrassed to tell most people this, but she only washes her face about every 3-4 days. And she does it in the shower. She uses a wash cloth and puts her face under real warm water and gently scrubs in upward motions a few minutes and that's it. No cleansers, no lotions, nothing. She said that the less you mess with your skin, the better it is. If you think about it, it's probably worse having the cosmetics on our skin 16 hours a day, than it is to go 3-4 days without washing a face with NO cosmetics, considering all the toxic stuff in cosmetics and cleansers that we use. When I think back to my younger days on the farm, I only washed my face a few times a week and had beautiful skin. It wasn't until I started wearing cosmetics and over washing it that I started having problems with it. Something to think about!!!

I would like to share a web site I found VERY interesting. It is the - Environmental Working Group. www.ewg.org/reports/skindeep/?key=nosign
I was trying to find a more natural facial moisturizer (our skin is porous) and ran across this site. It is amazing what chemicals cosmetic companies have in their products. I have shared this site with those who are not too sure about going a little bit more in harmony with nature. I thought some of you may like to share too. Also in this site you can read about pesticide levels in your average fruit, vegetables, seafood's, etc. Just a lot of eye opening information in this site. Earth Clinic is the best!

Hi, Marie from Cleveland, OH: I totally agree with you!! This Earthclinic site is awesome... I also have been doing lots of research on natural and organic hair products lately since I noticed that my beautiful long dark hair started falling out little bit. It still looks nice and thick, but I am determined to control the future of hair in my own hand. During the research, I was absolutely shocked to find out what's in our shampoo, skin care and other products...I threw away all my old shampoo and facial cleaner. I started using organic hair products from Morocco Method, Miessence, & Terressentials, and facial products from Organic Pharmacy. I also started taking organic Blackstrap Molasses and apple cider vinegar as mentioned in my last posting...I can't wait to apply more "secrets" that I found in this site to my life! :o) Keep up the good work, Earthclinic!!!!

I moved to Arizona 6 yrs ago and due to dry, low humidity, I saw after a year my face looked very dry, rough looking. I do not smoke or drink anything but water. But still it looked bad so I went to the health food store and bought Emu Oil and Evening Primrose Oil. I started to use Emu Oil, then tried Evening Primrose Oil. They both work excellently on my face. I use one or the other whatever is in stock at the store. My husband said he could see a big difference right away. My skin looks younger and has a beautiful glow. I'm 44 yrs old and people think I'm in my late 20's. That's something to smile about.
