Hi I would just like to put in a Yea! For Grapeseed oil. I am 37 yrs old and I suffered from a bad skin condition on my face and body for over 2 Loong years. The dermatologist said it was adult acne but I'm not so sure. I had tried many natural & chemical based products to the point of exhaustion until I finally found a brand that worked to where I could have my life back but my skin was still always on that verge of a break out at anytime. Anyway - about a month ago my husband was at the health store and I asked him to buy grapefruit extract but by mistake he bought Grapeseed oil. Well Grapeseed oil was one of the few things that I did not try on my face so I thought since I had it I would try it. UnBelievable Is all I can Say. This stuff is so good it took my skin to the next level. I don't even use my usual face cream anymore. If you have acne or sensitive skin. Try Grapeseed Oil It's awesome! It works! I love it! My skin is rosy and does not break out. I also know you can mix it with other oils for added benefits but I haven't tried that yet. Yea! For Grapeseed Oil.
Hi Annie, the kind of Grapeseed oil that I have been using is a brand called "Now" bought at GNC as well as other places on the internet. It is 100% pure. There are also other brands out there, I'm not sure which is the Best brand. I use it on my face (a small amount), on salads and for cooking too. I have been using it since I posted and I still have very few breakouts. Hope it works for you! - here is a link to what it looks like. Good Luck. http://www.nowfoods.com/index.php?action=itemdetail&item_id=3337
Half Milk, Half Cream
Half & Half as a cleanser:
At night, I fill a small dish with Organic Half & Half, boil it in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds. Then I put it in the fridge overnight. In the morning, I use the "skin" on top as a cleanser. Nothing works better for me! I guess it's a very gentle exfolient & hydrator?
I found a co. that maked homeopathic skincare! So rare. I spoke to a lady who is an expert on shingles and she put on HGH Trauma Fix(sp?) which has homeopathics and the pain stopped! One guy told me he put this same gel on his psoriasis and it cleared up much to his doctor's surprise. Just sharing.
I have been using honey on my skin and my skin is really glowing and looks tighter. I just have been putting a thin layer of honey on my skin, letting it sit for however long I have time and wash it off.
for beautiful glowing and younger looking skin, use pure honey. Put a layer of honey on face and throat for five minutes and remove with a warm damp towel. Follow with your favorite moisturizer. Try this once a day.
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.
People always tell me that I look early 20's. I am actually 34 years old. :o) Besides never exposing myself in the sun too much, I also drink honey water with bee pollen every morning for the last 10 years. I just started adding organic Blackstrap Molasses and apple cider vinegar to the drink lately. The taste is funny, but still bearable for me. I will keep you updated on the result.
Honey facial moisturizer -- this definitely works very well. It left a natural glow to my skin rather than the shiny, wet look of store bought moisturizers. Everyone should try it out.
honey mixed with organic sea salt cures acne and makes skin very smooth. Mixed together and applied to your face or other area to the body. Rub in the mixture to the desired area and let sit for 5 to ten minutes what ever you can stand. You will feel results immediately.
i read in a book that swedish woman use horseradish on their faces to cure brown spots. I tried it and i will have to say it really worked. Not only did it take away brown spots instantly but it made my face glow and took away my sleep crease .definately give this a try i haven't heard anyone talking about horseradish but it works. Just get the kind at your local store that is crushed and put it on in a circular motion, leave it on for a few minutes and rinse.
I have been aging so fast in the last few years after a family tragedy. I have researched and researched ways to 'antiage' my face. I have found that Hyaluronic acid syrum is amazing! I just used it last night and this morning and when on, my skin looks so much better! Also a good pore cleansing recipe: 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin 1 1/2 teaspoon organic milk Mix together and microwave 10 minutes. place a wet warm wash cloth over face to open pores. With a plastic spatula, apply this to nose area, chin and other areas (avoiding eye area) that pores are clogged. Wait 15 minutes and peel off, just like the biore strips. You will see the porcupines!

If you want to look younger in one short week, taking Hyaluronic supplements will guarantee results. My husband & I take 2 tablets, 50 mg each of Hyaluronic Acid twice a day. It must be taken with 2 tablets Vitamin C once a day for maximum results It is preferable to take Vitamin C ester. It is a highly absorbable form of Vitamin C. It is non-acidic and much easier on the stomach. We are in our late 40's and the results have been fantastic. Our skin is so soft and it shines. Age spots seem to disappear after a few weeks. Also, wrinkles (especially near the eye area) are diminished and lessen with each day you take it. We have had many compliments. Many thought we have had face lifts! We have not had any surgical or non-surgical procedures done. We started taking H/A for joint support. It lubricates joints, so you have the added benefit of decreasing joint discomfort. H/A has been used on the skin topically for years. It is in many skin creams. It helps hydrate the skin. Look for a brand that says it supports skin fitness. We use Source Naturals brand. It is a little spendy, but shop for deals online. Now you can hydrate your skin from the inside out. Try it, I think you will like the results.
Greetings from Dublin, Ireland! Woo hoo, my very first EC posting.
About 3 weeks ago I developed a slight itch on each eyelid. It progressed slowly, and I ended up with dreadful-looking, red, sore, swollen, slightly flakey eyelids. My eyes drooped, and the skin wrinkled up so much I looked like I'd aged 20 years. I have no idea what caused it; I'm healthy and use all natural, homemade products (soap, shampoo, household cleaners, etc), so I was perplexed. But I also got a bit worried, which isn't like me, and I resolved to go to the doctor in the morning. I haven't seen a doctor in 15 years or so, apart from normal, pregnancy-related check-ups, so it was a big deal for me. But I hadn't given up -- I racked my brains to see if I could come up with a solution, and decided to try food-grade hydrogen peroxide, diluted to 3 per cent. Pretty much as soon as I dabbed a bit onto each eyelid, they felt better. Within an hour or so, the flaming look to them had subsided quite a lot. I kept putting more on, and they just looked better and better. When I woke up, my little boy said, 'mammy, your eyes aren't yucky any more'. Two days later, my eyelids are cured. It must have been some sort of a virus that I knocked on the head. I was thrilled! I have the H2O2 in my fridge for gardening, but it is great for all kinds of things.
hi! Read a few articles on using hydrogen peroxide on my face.. I bought a bottle today and the bottle states 6%.. Is it ok for me to use this on my face? Also, how often do use it? Thank you, Carla
I have a quick question but one that's serious for me. I am using hydrogen peroxide as a toner and it has done wonders to my skin. But I keep hearing about how it is an oxidant and that it will cause my skin to age; is this true? Should I stop using it on my face? This is my fear thank you.
