Lotions And Potions

Recommended Posts

So I am going to be 55 I look horrid! I hate the bags under my eyes and red lines on my nose and chin. I just look 65 instead of 55. I hate my self! One of my problems is. They say hydrate your skin! Ok every lotion or potion I put on my skin makes me break out. I use a battery operated scrubber to wash, any soap of any kind, I break out.. If I use any type of lotion bam! I break out! Ughhh You know they say hydrate hydrate hydrate! Its been this way since I was a teen. The more products I use the more I break out. Any answers? Or products you think will be ok? I hate the way I look ! Doesn't seem to matter Gluten free or what ever... Does not matter!

I recently switched to olay age defiying daily moisturizer and its light and not greasy. also I use olay revitalizing foaming cleanser 7 effects. I was using loreal stuff for years and some kinda deep pore scrub. I became sensitive to the retinal -a they put in a lot of these products. I also use infalliable makeup by loreal and it never makes me break out, itch, or anything. they all work very well together. I'm nearing 50 in a month and it makes me look 40. I get compliments all the time. Hope this helps. Also I don't eat fried foods or drink soda.

I also wanted to say if you want to hydrate from the inside out, Pumpkin works wonders.  It helps your body and skin retain moister I buy pumpkin puree and add sugar and cinnamon and just warm it up.  Its loaded with vit. a and excellent for your skin

TY Badcasper for commenting, I am using a Loreal under eye firming jell, it works but the one for my face breaks me out. This stuff isn't cheap! I will try Olay I have to see if it's one I have tried before, I don't drink soda, And I very rarely have any fried foods. I only notice it when I put anything on my face hydrating lotions.

CeliacSharon beat me to it. Coconut oil. You can use it as a mask overnight, then wash it off in the morning. Maybe use a little bit in the morning too and after it soaks in a bit, apply your make-up as usual.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

Yes! Coconut oil. 

 

Every lotion and potion you can buy in a store will have some form of preservative, alcohol, silicone, etc., that dehydrates your skin. If you look at the ingredient list you'll find alcohol somewhere at the top. This will dehydrate and irritate your skin faster than any of the good ingredients can do something good for your skin. Dehydrated skin will wrinkle faster, so any lotion, make-up remover or anything else you put on your skin should be free from any damaging ingredients.

 

I just use pure oils for my skin, even to remove my makeup. I will wash my face with water and then use argan oil with a kleenex (coconut oil is solid at room temperature so it is more difficult to apply). It cleans as well as any store-bought thing could and doesn't involve synthetic stuff on my face. Coconut oil is awesome as a shaving cream or as a deep treatment for dry hair.  

 

Play around with different oils like argan, almond, jojoba, olive and also shea and olive butter. You will find something your skin likes.

ok sounds like oil does not work for you.  I sent some other replies from my e-mail but I don't see them here so excuse me if I am  repeating myself. I use honey PURE RAW HONEY and warm it and brush it on with makeup brush or fingers.  I do it once a week but it can be done daily.  I like to do it in the shower or tub because I can be messy.  leave on for a few minutes and rinse with warm water.  It cleans  with out drying or needing a moisturizer and leaves skin looking younger and soft.  If honey makes you swell like it does me but didn't years ago, use the BUCKWHEATHONEY.  it is not a gluten grain, it's just the name of a flower that they pollenate off of, wich is in fact gluten free.   I have also used honey just recently and in the past for a skin growth that looked like not a mole but skin cancer.  I put the honey on it with a bandaid over it for two days and it fell off.  shhhh! don't tell the government or they will outlaw it and kill all the bee's..  that spot came from where I spray perfume and had been using chantily that I just switched too.  Might be  just a coincidence.  good luck
