Quoted from grey rabbit


I have found a wonderful sunscreen from a local herbalist: white birch, astragalus, green tea, sesame oil, safflower oil, shea butter, zinc oxide, beeswax, vit. E and a variety of essential oils.
!


Where can I find that sunscreen? I need a truly homeopathic one.

Thanks!

Coconut oil is a neutral on my swami. After reading through this thread i want to try it all over, now. I usually use almond oil (a diamond) for moisturizing and love the smell. Just curious if the coconut oil will be better?

You go ahead because as for me - an eplorer - I know I cannot eat it, so it should not be absorbed into my body? Erring on the side of caution, here. I got a huge endorsement for Emu oil, however, which is a superfood I haven't even tasted yet. I think anything superfood will be "super" for skin.

olive oil, lemon juiced, and sugar, and rub on face and neck, and message in with dry wash cloth, leave on until you think of it again, then rinse off with hot water, and then splash with cold water to close the pours, and put a thin layer of olive oil, lightly over area and smile!

so what can I start doing about this? I have very strong forehead muscles and will never consider botox. And that self-facial life through massage doesn't do a thing for me. I look old  and angry now. My skin is getting drier too. #$%^&!!!


Many years ago I started to STOP my self from making those wrinkles.. it worked in no time..

I think even too late as in now, you could do the same.. take some clear tape and apply it across the stretched out skin over the forhead..    at least you will not make them worse.. IT only takes days to get used to doing new things.. Try it, it might work even when to late..

Years ago I started to be very aware of my facial expression.. I once looked in the mirror when I THOUGHT my face should express real surprise and happiness.. instead it showed a wrinkled angry mess.. do this as you sit as a passenger in a car and flip down the mirror without moving your facial muscles.. I found that while I smile in a hurry .... MY FACE MUSCLES don't show any smile until I grimace.. I LEARNED to do that all day long.. and still my face does not express a friendly demeanor..

I learned from that years ago, that people react to how one looks, and much unhappiness comes from having such different 'faces' then those who are seemingly more animated or have more responsive muscles..

as for cream and potions I have no need, but I do use Vitabath top to bottom for the last 45 years and love it, I also use hair conditioner every two days on my hair and then on my skin to wash over my.. that is more then enough.  

Posture is another such thing we should all "FEEL"  it portrays who we are even more then the face.. IF we walk tall and confident then others respond to that long before they even see you coming.. happened to me lately, where I felt good, looked ok, walked through the sun from behind so they could not see my face, but I got applause.. at 67 that is pretty good..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Seraffa, I have had phenomenal results with "The Japanese Skincare Revolution". Get that book and prepare to look younger, no joke. I'm being serious.

The techniques I've been using from that book have really improved my skin in just days! Fine lines I've had for years under my eyes are disappearing.

I also agree. If you cannot eat it do not put it on your skin.

Grey Rabbit, I just ordered some of the sunscreen you told me about. I am so grateful to you for sharing! I soooo can't wait to use it!!  

She says it even tightens pores- Woot    I noticed she uses lunar cycles to plant her herbs and uses solar energy. I'm very impressed.

Passing on the good vibes...

Retin-a, sunscreen, TCA peels and exercise!  OP is an A so you need to exercise more moderately but definitely do something cardiovascular; you need to to raise your HGH levels.  Fasting is good for this also.

I've had great success the last year and a half with a DIY face exerciser called the Tua Trend.  I have used both the Tua Viso and Tua Trend; currently I use the TT.  I was accused of having a threaded face lift at work, for real!

Quoted from Patty H
I like the water idea.  64 oz sounds like a lot, however.  Didn't I read somewhere on the forum about consuming a certain amount of water per pound of body weight?  Does anyone know that formula?


Yes - The recommended amount of water consumption is 1/2 ounce of water per pound of body weight per day. So, for example, if you weigh 140 pounds, you should consume 70 ounces of water daily.

However, if you don't regularly drink a lot of water, it's a good idea to gradually increase your intake so you don't throw off your electrolyte balance.

I used to tan outside & at the "electric beach" when I was in my teens.  I've since had several abnormal moles removed & have been keeping my butt out of the sun for a good 15+ years, even though I live in a place where it's sunny about 300+ days a year.  I've been lucky in that I have only a few lines around my eyes. (I'm a BIG smiler!)   my only "big wrinkles" are the two lines right between my eyebrows due to several years of more stress than I'd wish on anyone.  Things are great now, stress is way down, but it definitely took a toll between my eyes.  My teenager always asks, "Are you okay?  You look angry."  I'm not angry... I just have angry eyebrows.     My solution? Bangs!  They're just long enough to cover those pesky lines!  


Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again!

I found a site on kombucha that stated it is rich in hyaluronic acid. I do notice my skin feels firmer when I drink it everyday.
When I have enough mushrooms I will blend some with oats to make a mask!

I always kept my butt out of the sun. I'd never wear a thong bikini in public!   It was my arms, legs, shoulders, and face that got exposed.
