Does the ER4YT way go so far as to cover what you should put on your skin for your blood type? Thanks

Most of the avoid foods are because of the lectins, which hit us through the digestive tract.  Some folks avoid putting avoid oils on their skin, although I don't know how much it impacts.  Maybe there are others who are very scientific in their explanations.  

I was very happy when Dr. D finally came out with a skin care line.  I first got samples and tried them.  They visibly diminish wrinkles and feel very good on the face.  I use the Daylight cream.

A lot of us make skin products for ourselves.  I make my own body oil, which I massage into wet skin after my shower.  .  extra virgin olive oil mixed with grapeseed oil and a little vit. E and a few drops of essential oil of lavender (or other).

topical avoids are fine unless you experience noticeable reaction to a certain one.

I get sick when I so much as TOUCH wheat, as I discovered when I first went gluten-free but continued preparing wheat products for my kids for a little while. I've very recently discovered that I don't get that reaction from touching oats or spelt: I get reactions from wheat in particular, not gluten in general.

I also get allergic-type reactions to cow's milk and dairy products made from it. I'm not sure if it's a true allergy or not. However, I only get reactions from eating it- touching it is fine.

I'm super careful to avoid wheat in ANY body care product I purchase for myself or for my kids (so I don't get contaminated from something they touch after using it.) I don't worry about any other "food product" in skin care products. I even took some coconut oil from my kitchen and started using it as a moisturizer when I first started BTD.

About a year ago, I tried used pure, cold-pressed coconut oil on my skin and it made me dry out and itch!  Had to stop using it.  On both my Swami and BTD, it's an avoid for me.  I've also noticed over the years that most lip balm products make my lips peel in an almost painful way and I've had to give up many hand-lotions due to making my skin drier with peeling cuticles.  So, clearly, some of us are more sensitive to avoid oils than others.  

Just started using the Genoma skin care line and am loving the products!    They also have a very light, very fresh and natural scent that I am in love with.

I would totally love it if Dr. D would come out with a hand lotion, body lotion, lip balm, hair products, maybe even a natural care make-up line.  Right now, I make my own body lotion with a mix of purified water, almond oil, kukui nut oil and a little emu oil and lavender oil--which I keep in the shower and spray on just before final rinse.  A few squirts work in the bath water, too.  A Genoma body lotion would be even better!  

My 47 year old skin felt and looked so good today, I went bare-skinned.     Yesterday, a client told me I looked "radiant".  Great stuff--thanks, Dr. D!

I just read this post.  I am having flare-ups on my face and wondered if the Genoma restorative night cream would cause this.  My facial skin feels like it is burning and is rough to the touch.  I am not sure if the night cream is causing this or not.

try not applying for a few nights and see
it might be something else you are doing

I have no adverse reactions to the genoma skin line of products....
again, individuality

Luana,

It is really hard to diagnose something like what you are experiencing over the internet.  I am going to venture to guess here (with no history or pics) that it isn't the Genoma causing the inflammation.  Dr. D's products are very mild and shouldn't cause your skin to react like that.  

There are exceptions, so may I ask how long have you been using the night cream?  How long have you been experiencing the "burning rough to the touch" skin?  Have you had flare ups on your face in the past?  Do you have a history of sensitive skin?  Do you have dry, normal, oily or combination skin? I am not trying to be nosey, just trying to help.

You could forego using the night cream for a couple of days and see how you do.  If that doesn't work I would forego all of your skin care regimine for a couple of days and then re-introduce the products one by one.

It is hard to tell what is causing it.  It could be as simple as something you touched and then touched your face and it is now flaring up.  The pads of our hands are so resilient compared to the skin on our face, so they aren't as easy to flare like our more delicate skin is.

With Respect,
Frosty

Sorry Lola, I was writing my reply when you were writing and posting yours.

Frosty,

I had to stop using the Genoma  night cream.  As soon as I stopped and cleansed with some olive oil/grapeseed oil and castor oil - I then used shea butter cream as a substitute.  All the burning has stopped and the irritation is gone.  It had to be an ingredient in the Genoma that is too strong for me I think.

Also, you asked how long I was using the night cream and it was only for a few nights.  I did not make the connection until I looked at the calendar and noticed that the burning started only a day after I used the cream.  I do have dry skin and the cream did make it feel great but the irritation was still there.  I can use the eye cream though without a problem - go figure.

luanaflacco...I had the same reaction when I used the Genoma.  I stopped using it a few times but each time I tried again, I had the same negative reaction so I was able to determine that Genoma just doesn't work well for me.  I think that it's great stuff...but taking my "individuallity" into consideration...I switched to Grapeseed Oil and am doing fine now.  I'm always willing to experiment but not all products work well for me.  Individuality, individuality, individuality is the key to success.  Once you figure out your individual needs it's smooth sailing after that.
