I've used a 50/50 mixture of castor oil and VCO which I rubbed into and around my eye sockets in order to get rid of bags under the eyes and to help tighten up the skin naturally. Castor oil and coconut oil are also strongly anti-pathogenic and anti-fungal and when I rubbed it into my eye sockets and eyelids, I would inevitably get some of this mixture in my eyes. To me this was a benefit, since small amounts of castor oil and VCO in the eyes actually helps to protect eye health as well.
I started having problems with my skin.
It was becoming thin and would tear and bruise very easily. The first couple days of taking a teaspoon had my stomach feeling rough. But after a week that was completely gone. I think it was clearing out my colon. My bowel moment has been so much better. But the greatest thing is my skin no longer tears and the bruising is gone... I am amazed. My energy is alot better and also my sleep.... wish I would have been taking this years ago... I tell everyone I know what it has done for me.

I need some working remedies to get rid of double chin....
Can anyone help with this problem. My skin is becoming loose everyday. So many wrinkles on hand, face and neck. My skin is super dry and very dull. Tried, aloevera fresh, sesame oil, olive oil, coconut oil, store bought creams, but my skin does not absorb, at least I do not see any difference. Because of my boneloss in jaw, my cheeks look so drop down and I am looking very very old. Can anyone help me suggesting how do I make my skin absorb some moisture. My eyebrow and eyelids are also look very dropped down

Dry, loose & thin skin may indicate Silica deficiency. Cabbage is one of many vegetables & fruits that contain Silica. Also, Diatomaceous Earth & Bamboo are other good sources of Silica.
Horsetail is often touted as being a good source, but the amount of silica in it is a lot lower & some get side-effects from it. Other herbs are good sources though, such as nettle & ground plantain (not the banana). Most green leaves & green vegetables contain silica.
Silica helps to maintain structural integrity. It is needed for collagen production, so can support many different areas of the body - the hair, skin, nails, bones & heart especially may benefit from extra Silica in the diet.
OK, girls! Just wanted to let everyone know that after being chronically dehydrated (probably for years), then getting sick and quite acutely, critically and nearly fatally dehydrated, and then rehydrating (took almost 2 years!! ) - a lot of the sag of the breast tissue reversed itself.
It was a long time getting rehydrated but something I noticed was that, during the rehydration process, if I let it go for a few days, without buckling down and drinking plain water and taking in some sea salt - CHICKEN NECK! The breasts wouldn't noticeably sag in that short of time (I'm top heavy), but the skin of the neck...crikeys! I hadn't even noticed it, other than people saying I looked like I was getting younger during the rehydration period.
Anyway, just wanted to throw that in there and that I'm a firm believer in "Dr. Batman" (Batmanghelidj) and The Water Cure.
