Better Skin Now!


dry skin curesWaste Not, Want Not – Naturally Glowing Skin Without Wasting Food

Everybody knows that many of the foods we eat can also be used as natural remedies for glowing skin. These kitchen ingredients have a dual purpose; they not only work from the inside out but from the outside in too. The problem is – how do you decide if you should wear it or eat it? With these recipes you can now have you mask and eat it too! These natural remedies for glowing skin masks include ingredients that are slated for the trash bin, so nothing is every wasted.

Instant Oatmeal Packets

There is always one flavor of instant oatmeal packets that no one likes. Instead of them taking up cupboard space just use it as a face mask. The oatmeal absorbs oil on the skin, exfoliates, calms irritated skin and moisturizes. Follow the instructions on the packet; just add less water to make it a thicker paste. Once it has cooled apply to the face, leave on for 20 to 30 minutes and then wash off with cool water. The extra oatmeal can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to a week.

Papaya Skin

Papaya is great to eat but the papaya skin is filled with antioxidant and an enzyme known as Papain. This enzyme cleans impurities and dead skin cells from the face. Just rub the inner part of the skin on your face and let it dry. Finish by washing your face with cool water. Extra skins can be kept fresh in the refrigerator for up to two days.

Overripe Bananas

Banana bread isn’t the only thing these are great for; bananas are rich in vitamins which make them the perfect anti-aging mask. They also include essential vitamins and minerals such as Alpha Hydroxy Acid which is vital for the skin. Just mash half of the banana with one teaspoon of honey and apply to you face. Leave it on until it dries, than wash off with cool water. The honey is a natural anti-inflammatory with antibacterial and antioxidant qualities.

Tea Bags

While you are sitting back and relax with a mask, you can also treat your eyes to a little extra TLC. Don’t throw away your teabags after you use them; put them in the refrigerator to chill. Applying them to your eyes for 15 to 20 minutes will help eliminate dark circles under the eyes and puffiness. The Tannin in tea is a natural anti-inflammatory and it corrects discoloration.

Face wash that helps with acne itchiness and has natural ingredients?

I’m looking for a face wash that helps with acne, the itchiness from it, and is more on the natural oils or ingredients side. Not a huge deal, but if you have recommendations, please and thank you. Hopefully something not too expensive, something i can buy at walmart or something.

Unused to have acne and I have the scars to prove it. The best thing to do is get one of those balls of plush that have little holes in them with a shower hanger. I forget what they are called but they come in all kinds of colors and cost about 3-5 dollars. It’s very gentle to the skin and reduces irritation. Whatever you do, do not scrub your face, especially with a rag, and don’t pop unless its a white head. See a dermatologist if you don’t see any improvement on gentle washing. I took acutane for about a year or so and it’s brutal but works. At first it will make your skin very dry, and make your acne worse, but that’s what it does it brings out all of the acne and eliminates the problem because its high in vitamen a. Also you could eat foods wih vitamen a, but acne takes time to rid of overnight. Just make sure you try to be patient and be very gentle to your skin. Trust me I have tried all kinds of creams in my day, and the only thing that worked was when the acutane was in its finishing stages. Hope I helped.

Does clarins liquid bronze face moisturiser clog pores? Is it good for your skin and how well does it work?

It is an expensive product so I want to be sure it is worth it. I am 14 and have looked at the reviews for this. I have very pale skin. I try not to wear too much makeup because I want to let my skin breath as much as possible. In school, my skin looks a mess. I avoid mirrors. It’s not because I have spots or acne in fact I rarely get spots and my skin is very clear but my texture is awful. It’s not at all snooth and a bad colour, I have horrible redness on my cheeks. I the summer my skin has looked much much better. It is because of the sun and vitamin d I think. It has much more of a colour and I barely ever need to wear makeup! In the winter my skins looks awful without makeup and at least 3 or 4 times a week I end up wearing it. I am happy it gets better in the summer but soon that will change. I am hoping this will help. It sounds like what I am looking for. A glow and bit or colour will make my skin much better. But I was wondering is this just a mosituriser and good for your skin or will it clog pores? And will your skin look bad when it comes of? Please help! If there is any suggestions or recommendations for my skin that would be great. Also if you have had this product can you answer the question I have about it. Thanks! dermatologist recommendations for acne

It should not clog your pores. It’s mostly water with silicone to give you that smooth and soft application.

This shouldn’t replace your regular moisturizer.


On a side now, i think it’s sad that you wish to tan yourself to look "better". There are so many people with beautiful pale skin.

Google Dr. leslie Baumann. She’s world renown cosmetic dermatologist and she rocks her pale skin. Now, she does use self-tanner, but for her legs when she plays golf, but if you look at her you can tell she’s pale than tan.

Also google Marcia Cross and Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman, these people love their pale skin.

If you have bad texture, you want to exfoliate.

Herbal Skin Care and Dermatologist Advice

skin care adviceHerbal Skin Care and Dermatologist Advice

Herbal skin care has been in practice since ancient times when it was probably the only way to take care of skin.

• Herbal skin care routines have been replaced by synthetic/chemical-based skin care routines.
• Now people are realizing they want effectiveness and not extraneous chemicals, so they are returning to herbal care.

Why Herbal?
• Herbal skin care is good not only for the routine nourishing of skin but also for treatment of skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis.
• Most herbal skin care products don’t have any side effects.

Kinds of Herbal Skin Care
• Freshly extracted aloe vera is a natural hydrant that helps in soothing skin. It also helps in healing cuts and treating sun burns.
• Dandelion, chamomile, lime flowers and rosemary herbs, are a few examples of such cleansers.

• Antiseptics are another important part of Herbal skin care. Lavender, marigold, thyme and fennel are good examples of herbs that are known to possess antiseptic properties. Lavender water and rose water also form good toners.
• Tea plays an important part in herbal skin care. Tea extracts are used for treatment of skin that has been damaged by UV radiation.

• Oils prepared from herbal extracts present another means of herbal skin care. Tea tree oil, Lavender oil, borage oil and primrose oil are some popular oils used in herbal skin care.

Most herbal skin care products don’t have any side. Moreover, herbal skin care products can be easily made at home, hence making them even more attractive. However, this does not mean that you totally discard the synthetic products. Some people disbelieve their dermatologist, if he/she suggests a synthetic product. You should accept the fact that some skin orders might need usage of clinically proven non-herbal skin care products

How do it get rid of dry skin on the back of my legs?

I have got really bad dry skin on the backs of my legs its really itchy i wondered is there anyways i can get rid of it for the summer i really want t wear my shorts but i can’t,, please help!!
Thank you i will try all the things you have said below

Everyone is different but for me Vaseline Dermacare or what ever they are calling it now.It cures my dry skin for several days. I usually get dry skin on my legs when the seasons change. Best cure I have found.

What’s the good OTC stuff for acne? Not the expensive branded BS but the active ingredients?

So benzoyl peroxide works by killing the surface bacteria, salicylic acid can increase the rate at which skin cells slough off and thereby reduce blackhead/pimple formation…

I think I heard somewhere that dietary zinc was important, though why it is I don’t know…

Does anything else have proven benefits?

I would love to know the rationale behind any recommendation, not just an anecdotal "it worked for me" story. I’m all about the science behind it.

Thanks in advance!

If I were you, I would skip the cosmetics section of any store or department brand and go online to get up to 20% or even 50% salyclic acid aka beta hydroxy acid.

If you wanted to, you could also get a mega strength alpha hydroxy lotion.. up to 50% as well.

If you mean business.. get a TCA peel. It would be scary to do on your own, but if you have the nerve and follow instructions carefully, it could work for you. Those are normally done under a dermatologist’s supervision only.

Sloughing off cells does work by keeping dead skin cells from clogging pores. The only OTC thing I would buy is Oil of Olay anti-aging lotion. It has "beta-hydroxy" aka salicylic acid + moisturizing for better overall tone.. not drying like acne products.
