Multiple Remedies

Taking one tablespoon of flax seed oil (an omega 3 essential oil, meaning we cannot create it within ourselves) internally twice a day, and/or using ground flax seeds in smoothies, hot cereals, on salads and veggies will moisturize your skin from the inside out. It will take several months of taking it internally on a consistent basis to see a difference in your skin because your body will address its nutritional needs before it will address the skin. Beauty starts on the inside.

Be sure to store either the oil or the seeds in the fridge or freezer to prevent them from going rancid, which this oil does easily. This is also a good preventative against breast cancer.

Also, flax seed oil is an excellent moisturizer and healing agent used topically on the skin. I am experimenting with this oil in making my own lotions and creams. I remember using Noxzema on my face as a teenager and the compliments I got after using it to clear up a few zits. One of the main natural ingredients in Noxzema is linseed oil, aka flax seed oil.

Something else you can do is make a cream using shea nut or cocoa butter instead of coconut oil. Coconut oil is recommended as a moisturizer for those with oily skin. You can take 1 cup of nut butter, melt and add 1/2 cup of another oil like apricot kernal, rosehip seed oil, flax seed oil or jojoba oil plus a teaspoon of vitamin E oil as a preservative. Simmer only or use a double boiler so you don't destroy the healing properties of the butters and oils, then pour into jars for use. This thins the butter and adds other oils for more skin nutrients. The key in applying any cream or lotion on the skin is to apply it to damp skin to seal in the moisture.

Another thing to do that's highly recommended is to a body scrub with an oil and either salt or sugar or both added. In a container, add about 1/2 of the salt or sugar and add enough oil to cover about 1/4 inch above the mixture. This exfoliates the dead skin off so the water from bathing and the oils or creams applied after have a chance to penetrate into the skin. A few drops of an essential oil like rose, lavender, frankincense, carrot seed, or jasmine for dry skin will scent the cream and add healing properties to it.

Make sure you are drinking plenty of pure clean water to flush the body and rehydrate. Not drinking enough will lead to dry skin.

One last suggestion. Do an internal cleanse like Dr.Natura's Colonix internal cleansing system. I was amazed at what this product did for me, and I have written about this on a thread for heavy metal cleansing. The benefits go way beyond cleansing heavy metals. Getting rid of the accumulated gunk on your insides helps you absorb nutrients needed for your health and beauty. There are many testimonies on their website about hair, skin and nail improvements from this cleanse among many other things.

I love the suggestion about the AC vinegar. I've been researching homemade skin, body and hair care recipes and I would like to try that out. My only problem is that I do not have a bathtub. Would slathering it on my body with a sponge in the shower have the same effect?

Blessings and good luck!

Worked Temporarily

As I age I've noticed my skin looking very sallow. I'v taken 1200mg of Alpha Lipoic acid daily in the past with good results, however lately it doesn't seem to be working. My skin is very dull and sallow looking. Have tried all sorts of topical creams without any luck. Any home remedy ideas would be greatly appreciated. I feel an internal would work best. luv your website!!

I agree about the pawpaw - but instead of using the fruit there is a product which you can buy called 'Lucas' Pawpaw Ointment. It was bought by my daughter from a main shop in London. I am sure you will find suppliers on the internet. Good Luck.

JUST A NOTE: this might be obvious, but the turmeric in this face mask may not be suitable for fair skinned folk. unless you would like a nice summer (yellow) hue!

I also tried putting on a "turmeric face mask" but I didn't add any oils and my face also turned yellow. My fingers were yellow as well as my pillow case. Maybe turmeric is better being ingested rather than applied topically.

I know the feeling. I had to lie through my teeth after mixing HP with ACV instead of HP with borax......very embarrassing and all you can do is laugh. I have very fair skin with a lot of redness. When I want a tumeric mask I just mix it with VCO and leave it on for 10 min at the most and it always comes off quite easily. Maybe it was the type of oils that you used.

I was worried about turmeric staining as I have fair skin, but I put some turmeric with raw honey and used it as a mask (didn't measure, just threw some together). It washed off just fine, only problem was my fingernails stayed a bit yellow. It seems to tone the skin a bit, I'm hoping it will help reduce my acne.

I too have done the turmeric mask with coconut oil and honey and I haven't had any problems taking it off. I am thinking that when I make salads with cilantro I usually put lemon juice because it accentuates the flavor of the cilantro, so maybe the lemon juice had to do with it? Just try it without the lemon juice. Good luck!

I tried this last night on my fair skin using Che's recipe, and it washed off ok. After rinsing I used a microfiber cloth to get the last residue off due to the oil. Then I rubbed in some VCO and blotted off the excess. My skin was very smooth and felt well hydrated. The oil may be a key to preventing staining. I have also read of masks using turmeric mixed with yogurt...will have to look into that.

Hi Azg,

I have been suffering with acne rosacea -red face horrible acne break outs- for 18 months and I have been using a number of remedies to try to clear my skin- My husband said to me yesterday morning "Are you alright? You look pale."-- Yes I do look pale and I could not be happier- my long struggle to rid myself of this debilitating condition has paid off. I take ACV 3 x one tablespoon x three times a day with water. I use ACV topically about three times a day. Sometimes I follow this with a yoghurt face mask- I also use the Turmeric face mask about twice a week. I take turmeric in my breakfast apple with Yogurt ( I always grind a little balck pepper on the tumeric as this helps the body to absorb the it ). I have been using a mixture of a few drops of blackseed oil, neem oil and jojoba oil, triple strenth rosewater, colloidal silver and MSM before bed.

Plus in the last four days I started the Mini beet protocol which I think is responsible for getting rid of the spots on my face- as this was all that was left after all the above treatments- I had controlled the redness almost completly but now the spots have all but faded. The problem is it is hard to say what has done the trick. Using the minibeet protocol needs care because of detox effects - thus far I have had no problems. My skin is glowing, soft and smooth and no spots!!! I hope this helps- best of luck.

Can you post your recipe for the turmeric mask so we can compare to what we are using? Thanks!

Anti-Aging Remedies
Posted by Gaynor (Manaton, Devon Uk) on 09/28/2009

Hi Lita,

The mask I use is based on the Fountain of Youth mask with the following ingredients :-

Tumeric Teaspoon
honey teaspoon
neem oil four drops
acv half teaspoon
rose water half teaspoon
almond oil four drops
jojoba four drops
blackseed oil four drops
yoghut teaspoon

Apply to face and leave for about one hour-I rinse with cold water and then use a mild cream to remove residue. This works well -I try not to make it too runny.

Turmeric for face mask

I've been drinking turmeric milk and am ready to try it for skin. I see some people have turned yellow using the face mask recipes. One thing I notice is that Lita's recipe only calls for a teaspoon of turmeric, while some of the people who turned yellow used as much as 1-2 tablespoons of turmeric--that's 3-6 times more! I plan to start with just 1/2 tsp and to do a test first on my inner arm near the elbow crease. Even natural remedies have to be used responsibly--no one thing works perfectly for every one. And that said, I love this site!

Oh-my, too much turmeric. As soon as I read the amounts, I thought, hoowhee, it should be more like a Tablespoon of honey and a Teaspoon of turmeric. Even with a teaspoon, it takes a bit of effort to get it all off, but a turmeric mask is definitely worth it. Just gotta remember, a little dab'll do Ya' ;)

I can't say whether the additional ingredients make it more inclined to stain the skin, but I will say it isn't necessary to doctor it up like that. Just the two simple ingredients, T/honey and t/turmeric make a wonderfully good mask.

Turmeric stains skin. Period. If you are fair, it can last for days. In India where a haldi mask is applied to arms/legs before weddings it gives a golden glow. Here in the US, when I do it it turns this pasty-pale chick yellow for days if applied straight. If I dilute a 1/4 tsp or so with besan and yogurt as a mask it will come off with enough scrubbing and not stain very deeply. But make no mistake, it stains. And the more of it you use, and the less it is diluted with other ingredients the harder it is to get off. Not a bad thing, but do be warned.

Posted by Cayita (Welland, Ontario) on 08/18/2012

I went exactly through the same experience. I read that after you are done with your turmeric mask (it doesn't really matter what else you put in it) you need to apply gram flour ((also known as besan flour, chickpea flour and garbanzo flour) on your face. It will take all the turmeric residue away. You can also put it within the turmeric mask, it won't stain that way :)

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.

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.

Carole Maggio has a facial exercise program called "Facercise" that I use that made me look amazing.

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.

Lifestyle Choices
Posted by Soph (Los Angeles, Usa) on 02/16/2011

The best skin softner, virgin coconut oil. I take flax seed oil, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. Which does wonders. I think inner peace and low stress in life is important. I have a yoga ( which reverse aging process according to my teacher) & meditation practice. Studies indicate stress is known to be one of the main reasons for premature aging and disease. Womens health is compromised when under stress. Studies show that men benefit more from marriage, than women. The generalized statement, "you haven't lived till you have had kids, " is not applicable in this day and age. Studies show higher the education of a women, the less likely women are to have children perhaps education opens doors to new found opportunities that once remained shut to women. Many times these thoughts may not enter your mind about the worlds carrying capacity being exceeded and social responsibility.

Until you travel to places where the population has exceeeded the billionth mark. And you see children living in filth, poverty, uneducated, begging and having to work in factories. I once worked in field where I saw a high percentage of people that should NEVER ever be allowed to have kids. I will not go into the details but the end effect was children suffering. Children are beautiful gift and they deserve love, stability, security, and both a mother & father that are healthy, employed and present.

It is an interesting fact that a new generation of women are not choosing marriage or motherhood. Many are focusing on building meaningful lives in other ways. I think to me life is all about making the right choices for all of the right reasons. Women are very fortunate today that we now have choices, it wasn't that long ago that are choices were severly limited

I am amazed people! I had old depressed acne scars on my face and was very discolored. Four days after doing the first of five Fraxel laser resurfacing treatments, I broke out in new acne and sandpaper type bumps under the surface of my skin. I stopped using the creams the Doctor gave me and went to this routine:

I wash my face in plain baking soda, then I put raw organic honey, cinnamon, sea salt, a splash of lemon juice and a splash of ACV in the palm of my hand-mix it together and spread it on my face.I leave it on ten or so minutes while I drink a Tbls. or so of ACV in water, rinse my mouth in baking soda and brush my teeth. Then I rinse my face off in tepid water and dry.

I have a spritz bottle that I filled half with lemon juice and half with ACV and a little distilled water so it wouldn't sting and I spray my face with that.

Then I have another bottle filled with Lavender, tea tree, grapeseed and helychrisum oils that I spray on and let air dry.

I cannot tell you people what a miracle this is! My face is looking beautiful! It cleared up the acne and surface bumps in less than two days. I wake up to tight, smooth soft skin. My tone and texture are amazing. I never wear makeup anymore. I swear by this stuff!!! I love also what the fraxel is doing for my scars and color. I have only had one treatment so far and the results will take longer to be complete, but I will never use anything on my face again that you can't eat. I go in for my next laser treatment this week, and the first thing I will put on my red swollen face when I get home is honey. Honey, ACV and Lemon juice are fantastic! My teenage daughter is doing this same routine and has gone from a pimply to perfect complexion in under a week. We love it!

Hi- I was very excited to have found a use for my black strap molasses after reading that it could be used as a facial. So I washed my face and put molasses on my forehead, cheeks, jaw and nose, leaving it on for almost an hour. For two days one day off and then another day on. The morning after the third application I found small bumps completely covering areas where molasses was applied. Im figuring I left it on too long or that it doesnt work for me as a facial... Any comments?

Nearly a year ago a friend told me she only uses honey to wash her face. I tried it, and it's wonderful. I had been using a very expensive cleanser, but now I pat 1 tablespoon of honey over face, throat, and upper chest, let it sit while I brush my teeth, and rinse it off in the shower. My skin looks years younger, and buying local honey is better in so many ways than commercial, chemical-laden cleansers. It also seems to banish break outs within 24 hours.

Just a fun and amazing way to keep your hands and feet 'berry smooth': combine 4-5 softer strawberries with 1/2 teaspooon of salt, and 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Delicately mix the ingredients in a bowl, and then mush the strawberries in your hands or rub them thoroughly onto your feet. Simply rise off the excess mixture (without soap) when you are satisfied with your exfoliation.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E oil has kept my face young. When I was about 12 my mom made me and my sister spread Vitamin E on our faces. We complained because it felt sticky and thick like honey, but she insisted that overnight our faces would absorb it and that we would thank her later when we were older. She also insisted that after a shower we rinse our faces and bodies with cold water. And to never let the shower water hit our faces but to splash rinse our faces with our hands and with cold water ALWAYS. Mother knows best. The next day our faces felt baby smooth. After that ever so often (about once or twice a month) I would open up Vitamin E capsules and spread the oil on my face before bed and sleep with it on my face overnight. People have always commented how clear and smooth my face is. I've had people also ask me what I use in my hair because it is ridiculously shiny (I think it's because of the cold water rinses) I'm also an avid red wine drinker (I have been since my early 20's). Ironically, recent studies have shown that a chemical called Resveratrol slows age related diseases. I am in my 40's and even though at the time I was 100lbs. overweight at a physical I had done, I was told that my blood pressure and cholesterol levels were superb. They also thought I was only 20 or 21 (and they only thought I was in my 20's because my vocabulary was what made me sound more mature/not to mention my youngest who was 8 at the time was with me otherwise they would've guessed my age even younger). Anytime people find out my age their jaws drop. When me and my husband go out I still get asked for my ID (even though I'm a couple of months older than my husband) My husband on the other hand is a beer drinker (not that I have anything against beer-I enjoy beer every once in a while, too) and a smoker and he's been mistaken for being in his 50's. He's also been offered the senior discount at places we've gone to eat. I'm convinced that a combination of both the Vitamin E and the coincidence that I happened to be a red wine drinker (Merlot) is what has kept my skin youthful. I've been doing the same for my daughter who has the loveliest face and people do the same all the time (ask what she uses on her face and hair to keep it so clear and smooth). I know that chances are we just have good genes (my mom and her sisters look very young, too) but then again my mom and her sisters have been doing the same thing for years, too; So, if you don't have a skin care regimen I highly recommend this one and pass it on.

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.

To Sangeetha: Regarding facial exercises, you may want to do a search on the Internet. There are quite a few sites (too numerous to list but here is one: with lots of free information. Also, try YouTube and search for "Jack Lalanne" (face exercises) - he was the original back in the 60s and his exercises are still very effective. You may also want to check out the YouTube video on "How to Give Yourself a Facial Massage" - it will really get your face glowing. Good luck!
