Sudo Cream

When I had dry skin I mixed some Sudo cream with vaseline and rubbed it on my face and left it over night it must be during the night because it makes ur face look really oily and white. Then in the morning I washed it off and my skin had improved it looked more radient. At the moment I have spots and dry skin so I am trying another remedy I mixed one drop of toothpaste with some mose foundation and a drop of sudo cream my face feels fresh. Next time i will mix two drops of oil to make it smooth. If u are a person with really oily skin then apply talk to ur face over night as this will dry the oil and purify it too.


African Red Tea, Blackstrap Molasses

Drinking at least 3 cups of African Red tea, commonly called Rooibos is not only beneficial to your immune system but it also helps your skin stay clear. Also applying blackstrap molasses every night for about an hour after washing your face helps smooth your skin and gives you a glow due to all the vitamins and minerals it contains, and don't forget to take atleast 2 tbspns of it daily to keep regular. I like to put it in my red tea or in some warm almond milk along with some coconut oil, yum yum! Hope this helps all of you.

Clear Dry Skin . I'm a 42 year old female, often mistaken for 28 years old. I've suffered with dry skin, growing up but if you used only pure mild soaps with moisturizers and cocoa butter it will work wonders on dry skin.

1. Wash face with glycerin soap only. 2. Use witch hazel as astringent. 3. Use Oil of Olay as moisturizer. Have been doing this for many years and I look 20 years younger than my age. Don't forget neck shoulders and chest. Also use vaseline on feet and hands at night.


Nancy's Youth Formula

Here is my "Fountain Of Youth" Formula:

Mix a 1/4 cup of Aloe Vera
Add a soft gel capsule Hyaluronic Acid
Add 1 CoQ-10 soft gel capsule
Add 2 Vitamin A soft gel capsule
Add 1 Vitamin E capsule (recently added)
MIX WELL!
Spend 1 hour at least applying this.

Apply in a circular motion pulling skin lightly away from deep wrinkles, so you can get this deep into the problem areas.

WARNING: Your skin will turn red almost immediately, and if you have problem acne you should test a small area first.

Make sure you apply this evenly to your face and neck (unless testing for reaction.)
When this starts to work you want all of the benefits so be sure that you get close to and under the ear, also close to the hairline.

Don't just slap this on your face and expect it to work, You have to spend a bit of time applying this.

Make sure to APPLY EVENLY TO WHOLE FACE AND NECK!
Can be Applied to lips and the back of neck.
Make sure you close your pores with a cold cloth lightly applied, don't rub. For best results apply warm cloth to face before applying to open pores.

Added Tip: Always apply a cold cloth to your face and neck after showering etc to close pores and lock in moisture.

I have noticed a "SIGNIFICANT" reduction of fine lines and deep wrinkles. I
have laugh lines and since using this I have noticed that when I smile now the line does not extend to half of my face, Smile is only around my mouth.
My skin has changed considerably to have such a dramatic occurrence.
( Vitamin E was recently added, so these changes did not include Vitamin E )

Pure Shea Butter

I have been using pure shea butter on my hands and cracked feet since the weather turned cool. I also apply it around my nose to help cracked, peeling skin from contact dermatitis. It is one of the few moisturizers that doesn't aggravate the condition! Well, recently I ran out of my expensive Q10 face cream and decided, it being winter and my skin being dry, that I would use the shea butter on the rest of my face. So I took about a dime size from the container and rubbed it in my palms, (it is solid and needs to be "melted") and then massaged it into my skin. The next day I noticed that my pores were visibly smaller! I have continued to do this each night to see what happens.. I wake up in the morning with my face glowing and it is not my imagination, my pores are smaller. I really massage the butter into my skin with small circular movements -- my face gets a little red from the increase of circulation from the massage. I am not sure I can keep using shea butter in hot summer months (too oily) but certainly during cool weather! My bottle of shea butter cost about $4.00. I will let you know if my forehead creases disappear. So far, the lines around my eyes are less noticeable, but no such luck on the forehead!


Colloidal Silver

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

What keeps wrinkles at bay. I have Ehlers_Danlos Syndrome and most people with this condition have very youthful looks. I definitely wouldn't recommend a genetic defect to keep you looking young but it does help ;) No, but seriously, make your own soap, I do, and everybody who uses it always comes back for more. I only use sunflower oil or olive oil to make it with, far better than the animal fat they use commercially. Also home made soap still has the glycerin left in which commercial soap doesn't .

Facial Exercises
Posted by Louise (Ocean Grove, Australia) on 01/28/2008

Hi,

I originally used the chart and workout found in "The Natural Facelift" by Joseph Corvo. I always followed the acupressure workout but didn't really like the facial exercises. Another facial acupressure chart and routine can be found in "Eva Fraser's Facial Workout" by Eva Fraser. I do some of her exercises and prefer them. There are also much less detailed facial acupressure charts in the following two books "The Natural Face Book" by Juliette Kando and "The 10 Minute Facelift" by Tessa Thomas. All four of the books have their merits. In order I would choose the Eva Fraser, followed by the Joseph Korvo, then Juliette Kando and lastly Tessa Thomas.

Before buying anything get people to check their local library first. My local library has two of these. Then Ebay for the best prices before checking with Amazon. For instance the Joseph Corvo book is out of print and normally sells for a pretty steep price, so as all the books have their merits, go for the one which is most readily available first.

There are also hundreds of websites offering free facial exercises. Here, in my opinion, are two of the best:

www.shapeyourface.com

This guy is selling nothing and the eye exercise in particular really works. It doesn't just tighten up the eye, but seems to help lift the upper cheek area.

www.ageless.co.za/facial.htm

These people are selling a range of skin products, but the exercises are well explained.

Hope this helps. it might be an idea to post links to the two websites, that may cut down on the number of questions you receive.


Eliminate Chemicals

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.

Lye Soap

Younger Looking Skin - I use these products - Are They Safe to Use On My Face?

I wash my face with Lye Soap. Why? I saw a picture of my grandmother and her sisters as teenagers and none of them had acne, I asked her what they used she said "We were poor, all we had was lye soap mama made." Then I cut a lemon in half squeeze the juice in a wash rag and pat my entire face with it. I Let it soak in for maybe 1-2 mins. Then if I'm staying home cover my face in extra virgin olive oil, If I going out I pat light dabs of the oil on (so I just look dewy) My main concern is the Lye soap. I think in this regamin I cover cleaning, toneing and moister. I wanted to recomend it to a frind but I'm not sure if it is good advice?


Rose Water, Colloidal Silver
Posted by Altaire (Lindsay, Canada) on 03/11/2008

I have never had such clear skin as when I lived in India ... I would buy a large bottle of pure Rose Water ... I would wash with that only. Clearest skin ever. Supermarkets do sell pure Rose Water (no glycerin) here in the spices aisles usually ... much cheaper than health food stores. Test different kinds as brands seem to have different strengths. Pour rose water in your hand and splash on face.

Also Super Silver (colloidal) is incredible for healing your face (inside and out) or any other part of you.
