Topical Rose Toner
Posted by Charity (faithville, Us) on 01/11/2022

This week I added two things, I already took 1k D-3 with K-2 so I added 5k more a day and then I ordered heritage rose toner topically. It is rose essence and smells strong but what surprised me is the skin seems to snap tight when this stuff is applied to it. I take a lot of things most days and usually when you add a new thing you see a lot of change. I love rose toners anyway, but this might be the fountain of youth. I may not need to hide my neck, it loves this stuff.

Ingredients: Purified Water*, Glycerin (Vegetable), Sodium PCA, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate and Rosa Damascena (Damask Rose) Flower Oil.

*Water (Vor-MagTM) has been vortexed and magnetized to raise the energy to a higher vibration.

2022 and brand new YOU .....let it be ....let it be.

Hi Stella, Thanks for the advice. I prefer primrose oil because emus are killed for their oil.

Hi there, this worked for our family. There's this white fungus mushroom that we buy and we add it to our soup or other dishes twice a week. Also make sure to make a stock from beef bones or chicken bones with all the cartilages included. Consume the broth and the mushrooms. They are both high in collagen. Keeps the skin tight and supple.

EC: Hi Nina! Are you referring to common white button mushrooms? Thank you for your great post!

Cold Showers

Cold, Face-First, Showers

For glowing skin, I would DEFINITELY say cold showers! Skin and hair. I noticed with the coconut oil vitamin C scrub, while the hot cloth over the face might dissolve some of the Vitamin C, slapping the COLD wet cloth on it is a whole other LEVEL of looking younger. I don't wear makeup or mess with my hair so I don't get a lot of mirror time and, before, whenever I'd catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror I was all "YIKES! I'm OLD! " ROFL but NOW, since switching to cold showers and with the Vitamin C scrubbing I catch a glimpse of myself and think "Who's' that?!?! " because I look so much younger and fresher and...well...YOUNGER! So, now, I keep looking in the mirror, ROFL! To make sure it wasn't my imagination or it isn't "wearing off" or something. I call it the daily, rebooting baptism because that's what it feels like - a sort of energizing and spiritual wake-up call. And, of course, it turns out that's also what it LOOKS like, so, WIN/WIN!!

Coconut Oil and Vitamin C Facial
Posted by Cindy (Illinois, Usa) on 09/04/2020 488 posts

It's the massage that breaks up the scar tissue so massage with just about any oil will help in that regard and I would definitely expect some improvement.

Not sure about the vitamin C. Whether it would help or have no effect - I can't imagine it would interfere...but topical use of Vitamin C is a quite new interest but it doesn't dissolve in oil. At least, not much or not quickly but I don't have much experience with it except that it makes perfect little scrubbers in the coconut oil and stays mixed throughout very well. And if the coconut oil CAN dissolve it a little bit and take some C with it when it sinks in, I'm thinking that's gravy!

Thank you about the L-ascorbic acid. I will try it for sure, you see im recovering from a staph infection on my face. It has been resistant and developed scars. Thank you again.

Hi Ana! I'm just using powdered L-ascorbic acid. Any health food store should have it. Possibly some grocer's and it's certainly easily obtainable online. Or it was, anyway. I don't think the US corruption factory has spread to vitamin C but I could be wrong. I bought an 8 lb tub of it but that was pre-virus so I don't know what's going on now.

Coconut Oil and Vitamin C Facial
Posted by Cindy (Illinois, Usa) on 08/31/2020 488 posts

Awesomest Coconut Oil, Vitamin C Facial!

I've been playing with cold water showering and head-soaking and face washing and just generally splashing it everywhere BUT I was also working on a super simple face scrub/fask/skin food thing so I thought, why not combine the two?!?!

Super easy, 1/4 cup of coconut oil (or in any amount), 1/8 cup of L-ascorbic acid powder (half the amount of coconut oil). That's it! Stir it up. It doesn't take much, just enough to get a scrub as you massage it into your face. Then leave it on while you get ready to shower and when you're ready, wet a washcloth - OR old cut up piece of t-shirt if you're re-using and recycling - first with pretty warm water, place it over your face to open the pores so the coconut oil and vitamin C can soak in, then wipe your face with it. THEN wet it with COLD water and hold THAT over your face.

Tips - the L-ascorbic acid is made from actual fruit so you can use the scrub on your lips and it will taste good if you lick it off - if you want, LOL, and for the cold water, you may want to use water from the fridge for the summer since your water might not actually be very cold. Ours is about 77 degrees which is basically the temp of a heated pool so - it's cold enough for a full on shower in one's first few cold showers but I'm going to have to keep a jug of water in the fridge for when I get used to it and want something colder. And that's what I've been using with the coconut oil scrub, too. As it feels much less cool when it's just on your face.

That's' it! Coconut oil, half that amount (by volume) of L-ascorbic acid, a washcloth or piece of an old t-shirt or some other clothing that's basically rag material and a shower or a sink. SUPER smooth skin. And, personally, I think the cold water actually works the facial muscles. it almost certainly "exercises" - I.e. dilates and constricts - the blood vessels. Plus, with the refrigerated water, you just feel sort of INVINCIBLE after! Like doing a whole teaspoon of super hot cayenne in a shot of water! WOW!

I drink turmeric powder in almond or coconut milk every day - 1/2 teaspoon - and I also use it my facial masks at least once a week. It is a wonder spice. I never have breakout since taking it. Turmeric is great for cleansing the blood and detoxifying the liver and it is also amazing skin brightener. My favorite is a simple turmeric and raw honey mask - 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric in 1 tablespoon of raw honey mixed well. Apply to face and neck. Leave on for at least 20 minutes and wash off. Be careful not to get turmeric around light coloured clothes since it stains.

Ozonated Olive Oil
Posted by Heather (Pittsburgh, Pa) on 03/13/2018

Does ozonated olive oil help decrease signs of skin aging? Anyone try it and see any good results?

Aloe Vera, Vitamin E
Posted by Eline (Brisbane, Australia) on 02/20/2018

Instead of using Vit E oil try using grapeseed oil or safflower oil. Vit E oil can be too heavy for oily/acne skin.

Oils high in linoleic acid is best for oily/acne skin.

Hi Becki, I know your question about razor bumps is from 2011 but better late than never. Heck, you may have already found a natural remedy that works for you. I will tell you what works for me. After I shave my legs I apply ACV (organic apple cider vinegar), Make sure it says "with mother". ACV is a natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal remedy and helps close the pores after shaving. I use it also for when I shave under my arms. I also use it as a natural deodorant.

Hope this has helped. GBU!

Posted by April (Greenville, Sc) on 06/16/2016

I'm 42 yo and in the beginning stages of menopause. My skin is changing...dry patches, redness, acne, etc. I made a mask of turmeric, coconut oil, honey and ACV and left it on for 20 mins. After removing, my skin felt like a baby's behind! Love this mask!!

  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Splash of ACV

Mix well, wearing a disposable glove, apply with a cotton ball to minimize dripping. Leave on 20 mins. Rinse with lukewarm water only, no soap and pat dry. Use facial tissues to remove any excess turmeric.

Note: I had an open, very painful, acne sore on my face when I applied this mask. After removing, the pain was gone and the redness reduced. The next morning it had healed/improved by 50%.

Aloe Vera
Posted by Cryssyhoneylove (Toms River, Nj) on 05/02/2016

Aloe beats expensive moisturizers.....

I have had a noticable difference within three days of washing my face two to three times a day with black soap..then I apply aloe and leave it set for two minutes...then cool rinse...OMG I'm loving the results...I am caucasian... 31 years old... Sun lover...hormonal acne, fine lines from dryness... My acne is speed healing...what would normally take two weeks to taking four days. My fine lines on my lower cheek have diminished greatly. At the same I have added flaxseed oil..chorella.. And collagen ... We are a almost vegan family, gluten free lifestyle, I work out four times a week.... Yoga, body weight exercises... No drinking, a little green smoke....super in love. Super happy.

I have started using MSM internally for about three weeks now and after learning that it is made from DMSO, I also ordered DMSO and decided to use that topically. As it is liquidy oily it seemed to me to be an ideal ingredient for some skin treatment since I have very dry skin.

I have started the following regimen a week ago:

In the evening I put a few drops of 70 % DMSO on a little cotton ball and put on my face and neck (which I clear with 1:1 organic ACV beforehand). After the DMSO application I immediately follow with putting a few drops of Organic Seabuckthorn Oil (be careful with your pillow, it is a bit orange). I apply that with one very clean finger and massage it in a little. Then I sleep. The next morning all it totally absorbed and the skin feels soft and smooth. I clean it with wiping it again with 1:1 organic ACV and then leave it alone. Do that 2 nights and give one night a break and then continue.

I have not had such smooth and baby-like skin in decades. Also the drinking of MSM makes a great combination to nourish the skin with sulfur from the inside. I am going to use this regimen for my hands as well. As for the rest of the body's skin I will try other oils such as organic Argan Oil or Hemp seed oil as the Organic Seabuckthorn Oil comes in a small bottle and is more expensive.

Would love to learn about who else has had rejuvenation experiences with DMSO and MSM.

Oil Cleansing Method
Posted by Alyssarae (Fort Wayne, In) on 02/25/2016

I actually had very similar results with OCM as my skin looked fabulous for a week or so then out of no where it was break out city. It was worse than ever before. I find that when mixing organic jojoba oil with my essential oils - lavender, tea tree, geranium, frankincense or a combination -my skin is much more clear and radiant. I also use an organic facewash and ACV with equal parts water as astringent.

Fish Oil, Vitamin E
Posted by Samantha (BC, CA) on 04/12/2015

Fish oils helped clear up a gross patch of skin I developed on my face after being ill for several years. I take 1 Tablespoon per day, down it with a glass of juice, and started seeing results pretty quickly! I now take it every other day or so just because. I refer to it as liquid gold now :)

I only used a generic brand too as I was unable to afford the $50 high quality stuff so give the $10 bottle a chance! Sometimes I say a prayer beforehand to make the oil more healing for my body. whatever works!

As for getting it down: the unflavoured stuff works best. Pour some on a large spoon, have flavoured drink/fruit juice ready, hold breath, pour oil onto tongue, pour some juice into mouth and swallow whatever you can. Only breathe through mouth when necessary. Once its all down keep drinking juice and swish around in mouth so it cleans up the gross taste and swallow. It can be done! :)

Grapeseed Oil
Posted by Debbra Dee (Boston, Ma) on 04/06/2015

Recently I got a terrible rash from an allergic reaction to antibiotic. Everything I put on my face stung terribly. I tried Grapeseed Oil (with Vit E) and it calmed down within 12 hours. Usually I am battling rosacea but I've kept using the GSO 2x a day and I have no signs of it after a week. Redness, bumps and flakes are gone. Plus my skin is softer and smoother than ever. I think I may be able to stop using the topical Rx I've been on for the last 4-5 years too. I'm going to try it on my body skin and in my netti pot next.

Facial Beauty Oils/Moisturizer
Posted by Che (Roxas City, Philippines) on 04/01/2015

Hi everyone, I'm back with my new formulation recipe for beautiful skin. I've tried this for quite a long time and it's actually one from among my beautiful skin secrets. I've tried several combinations in the past but this one seems to be the best. It made the other heavy oils lighter and burning effects of some oils we're eliminated. It's lighter and smoother on the face. It is anti fungal, anti-bacterial, anti microbial. It's a very good moisturizer, it will make your face really glow.

I combined: 150ml castor oil, 150ml sunflower oil, 150ml VCO, 100ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 10 drops of lavender oil, 10 drops of rosemary and Vitamin E. Try it and let me hear how this works in you.

I will tell you how to use the turmeric. I grew up with this herb, being an Indian.

For mask:

  • 1/2 tsp of turmeric (you will find it any indian store) but you will be better off buying organic from any health food store
  • 2 tsp of milk cream or any heavy milk cream or 1 tsp of sour cream
  • 1 tsp of chik pea flour(you will find it any indian store.

Mix it and leave it for 10 minutes

In India, even the new born is given this scrub everyday before while shower. Do not add any oil to this. Leave it on your face for 10 minutes. First wash with cold water. You will still find your face bit yellow then, make a paste of 1 tsp of chikpea flour and two tsp of any milk and again gently scrub your face and wash with cold water.

African Red Tea, Blackstrap Molasses
Posted by Britt (Pa) on 11/18/2014

Blackstrap Molasses works wonders for my skin! I mix it with ascorbic acid to create a think paste. The molasses is loaded with trace minerals and vitamins and the Vitamin C is anti-aging!!

Posted by Guin (Memphis) on 10/10/2017

For skin, try drinking more water along with applying aloe and vit E liquid. Keeping your skin hydrated will hide smaller wrinkles, and for the acne try an herbal rinse, using herbs that have anti-bacterial qualities. Try not to use any harsh chemicals on your skin, and use a gentle exfoliator (spelling?) every couple days, less is you have sensitive skin. I use brown sugar in hazelnut oil, with a bit of lemon or lime juice mixed in. You can add a tiny amount of your facial wash to help prevent too much oil sticking to your face. I hope that this works for you as well as it works for me!

Castor Oil and Olive Oil Cleanser
Posted by Somegirlontheinternet (Sacramento) on 07/22/2014

Hey there... I just wanted to mention a possibility. Most olive oil sold contains high amounts of soy oil. The olive oil market is extremely corrupt. You can just google it to find out more about how deep it goes, but I recall first reading about it through a Consumer Reports article where they took a bunch of top companies (even expensive brands) and found them to be highly contaminated. It's pretty messed up. That said if you can find small local companies that make it they are usually legit. The reason I mention this is that 90% of soy being grown here is GMO. That could be causing an adverse reaction. If you already have soy allergies/sensitives this could be an issue as well even in the off chance the soy in it is not GMO. Just thought that might be something to consider. Maybe try mixing it with Virgin Coconut Oil instead and see if that works better for you.

Posted by Somegirlontheinternet (Sacramento) on 07/22/2014

Hey there,

I don't know what is specifically causing these issues but the skin is naturally slightly acidic to protect itself from bacteria and other junk that might try to enter or cause infection. Since borax is alkaline I'd suggest using Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (or even just fresh lemon juice) like a toner to follow up your borax cleaning to restore the skin to its natural acidic state.

Posted by Mama to Many (Tennessee) on 06/04/2014

Dear Ms from New York,

When I saw your post, my first thought was, "Activated Charcoal powder poultices." Charcoal draws out infection, toxins, foreign substances (like splinters.) It makes me think it could draw out tattoo ink. It would be safe and inexpensive to try. If you look under Activated Charcoal, you will see how to make a poultice. I would try them each night, over night.

I checked online at, a favorite source of mine for information regarding medical uses of charcoal. Turns out that my idea is not original!!! In fact, two years ago, they were looking for volunteers to try to remove tattoos with charcoal powder. I do not know if they are still seeking volunteers, and they do not have any follow up on it that I can see. Here is the link.

Let us know how it goes! I hope this works for you.

Hello, I have several tattoos that I am trying to get rid of. I have tried some home remedies such as hydrogen peroxide, lemon juice, brown sugar/body scrubs and essential oils to fade them which has helped slightly but I am wondering if anyone else has had luck with other products? Would be very helpful to me, thank you!

Castor Oil
Posted by Jholl (Kentucky) on 03/20/2014

You can also use castor oil as a base for makeup. Even though it is thick, you can apply it thinly on a clean face. Give it a minute or two to absorb, then apply makeup. You can even blot it a bit if it still feels too thick. I think it helps with overall complexion and possibly keeps some of the "questionable" makeup ingredients from absorbing.

Posted by Karen (Calgary) on 02/15/2014

I just wanted to let you know that if you are suffering from dry skin after washing, try the oil cleansing method. If you google it you will find lots of info. It will probably really help you. Good luck!

Nadia: Women all over the world just like you are getting beautiful skin from green drinks. I put 1oz organic baby greens in a blender with some water, grind them up, and drink one every 2 hours. My skin is smooth and soft. I also eat plenty of organic fruits. Sugar, nutrients, and energized water are good for the skin. Omega 3's from plants are good for the skin. I take 30g/day chia seeds. You can take flax oil.

Hello Earth Clinic,

But after I apply yogurt, my skin become dry (normally yogurt is for dry skin, right?) Until now, I haven't found any natural product for my face.

I will be deeply grateful if you can help me. I don't want to use my chemical products back.

Thank you so much.

Omega 3 Oils, Magnesium
Posted by Natalia Olivia (Fairfield, LA) on 02/06/2018

I was experiencing a similar problem of old looking hands from sunburn when I was young until I started taking higher doses of fish oil and borage oil, as well as magnesium. A magnesium deficiency can impede healing of the skin. This trio has worked wonders for me.

Regarding hands that have worked hard and now look old, I have something to say that I hope will help. You mention that you eat well, but not if you eat a lot of fish or take fish oil. Just in case you do, please try cutting your dose in half or cutting it out all together for a while. I cut my dosage in half and now rarely get a bleeding gouge or bruise when I work outdoors. Best to you.

I have found that aloe vera gel straight from the plant keeps my hands looking much younger than other women my age. I also use it on my face and neck. All over, if I have a big leaf. At first it makes your skin feel tight, but if you drink enough water and get your dietary fats, eventually the dry feeling goes away and you're left with tight. Better than saggy! The best thing to do is buy a plant, otherwise you can find it in the produce section at Mexican grocers and Caribbean Markets.

Hi Cat, Apply Glycerin to your hands. The only thing that helps my very dry skin is Glycerin. I have been using it since my childhood. Always apply to my hands and face before going to bed and get up with very fresh, soft and wrinkles free skin. It heals the wounds and rashes quickly and cure the acne. If I use another cold cream or oil I get pimples, dry rough and wrinkled skin. I love pure Glycerin and can't live without it.

@Cat: To prevent aging in general, be sure to get adequate amounts of Selenium by eating 1 Brazil Nut daily or taking a Selenium supplement. For the skin in particular you need adequate amounts of Vit-A and E. These three nutrients combined will greatly increase the integrity of the skin.

Aging Hands Remedies
Posted by Cat (Tauranga, New Zealand) on 09/05/2013

Hi David, thanks for advice.... No, the problem with the hands isn't bruising - it's skin tears. Even very small ones last 6 months. I'm sure doing the dishes without gloves doesn't help but I am careful not to put my hands into the water too far when doing them. I do stay clean otherwise though as far as washing my hands when necessary. Also I have very dry skin so if a wound does try to heal, it becomes so dry, I have a tendency to pick at the forming scab so rush to get some coconut oil lathered into my hands asap! I really think I need to take some flaxseed internally as I read on here and see if that can help from the inside. P.S. Your hands sound fantastic!

Aging Hands Remedies
Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 09/04/2013

Hello Cat,

You say when you when your hand is injured it takes a long time to heal... Supposing you mean the brusing stays a long time, that symptom would indicate a vitamin C deficiency. If you've ever noticed older folks do bruse easly and the brusing stays a long time; Vitamin C deficiency. Take 2,000 mg daily, buffered to keep from getting too acidic, and see if in a few months your brusing is reduced.

To improve the skin texture try using hyaluronic acid in a formula with glucosamine and chondroitin. That usually comes with some MSM also. That is taken orally, but you should be able to find it in a lotion also.

I also apply a cap full of DMSO to my hands as an anti arthyritic precaution. When my hands are feeling achy the DMSO immediately solves the porblem. I don't know if the DMSO will help with the skin issue but I've used DMSO applied to hands eight or ten times yearly and at 64 yo my hands look smooth and tight. Wish my face looked so good! Maybe I should have been using the DMSO on it too.
