I try putting some lotion on (its from Bath&body works so i dont think it does much) and it just gets slimy and doesnt help it at all. HELP!!!

Answer by gatoamor82
Eucerin cream works really good. I put on tons of the lotion and then put thin cotton gloves on at night when they get really bad. I have tried Vaseline and it works good too but its greasier.

What helps regenerate skin best?

Question by Kashkikov: What helps regenerate skin best?
I've got a couple of scars on my skin. I've heard that stuff like Emu oil, Aloe, and Tamanu Oil help, but I want other opinions. What works best?


Best answer:

Answer by oldtimekid2
There are a couple options... addressing it on the outside and addressing it from the inside. Both are very good and beneficial ways of doing it and you can even do them both at the same time.
You also heard right about the Emu Oil and Aloe, but there are many other options.

For external applications, one thing you can do is to take a 400 IU softgel of Vitamin E, then CAREFULLY poke a hole in it. Squeeze out the oil and spread it out evenly onto the affected area. If you have more than one area that's been affected, spread out the amount that's used evenly to each area, as too much vitamin E can build up to toxic levels in your body.
You can also try soaking your skin in Aloe Vera because that helps to soothe any tissue it touches.

Also, if you would like more benefits, there are some supplements you could take internally to help the health of your skin. Some of the most popular ones are Biotin, Silica (commonly from Horsetail), Emu Oil, Squalene, Borage Oil (specifically for the GLA, Gamma Linoleic Acid), Hyaluronic Acid, MSM, L-Cysteine, Collagen, and most antioxidants (like Vitamins A and C among others).
Good luck!

Best answer:

Answer by Léopoldine
Do you mean a cold "sore"?

If yes, try "Abreva" cream (@Walgreens etc.) it works very well and fast for me.

Otherwise I'd like to help but if it's not a cold "sore"... I don't see what you mean.

Rash on my face from a cleanser i've always used for breakouts?

Question by Lexi Wood: Rash on my face from a cleanser i've always used for breakouts?
I've always used Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash when my face breaks out. I just bought a bottle of it a week ago because due to being pregnant my face has been breaking out a bit. But about the third day I used it, a dry skin/itchy red rash broke out around my mouth and chin that sort of burns. Have I developed an allergy to it or is it the hormones from my pregnancy causing it? What can I do to make it go away? Since the rash broke out I've stopped using it.
Thank you!

Answer by Sur La Mer
Take it back to where you bought it.
Stop using it ASAP.
You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs, beauty, personal hygiene, or makeup to the FDA. Visit the FDA MedWatch website or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Medications, anti-acne products, birth control pills, supplements ALL HAVE SIDE EFFECTS that can do more harm than good.

Any kind of facial wash, you're leaving something toxic behind, it's not a matter of convenience, it's a billion dollar business that can do more harm than good to your acne. And sometimes we feel entirely virtuous about our skin-care regimen because it's full of SPF-- all year round!-- and cleansers and such. But the truth is, we may not realize that we're overdoing (or underdoing) something that can lead to the very thing we're trying to avoid: dryness, breakouts, accelerated aging, New York dermatologist Dr. Jeannette Graf. (I've been giving this same advice for decades, but she's proof enough!).
Take a shower everyday, use washcloth to exfoliate and bath & body wash. Hydrogen peroxide does wonders for acne. Visit their website for more tips & other uses. ONLY $ 1.

Acne medication could worsen what ever allergies you have, so instead of trying out one product after another, you're actually spreading it around.
The less products you use, the better for your skin. Use a bath & body wash like Suave, Irish Spring, Dove Body & Face wash in the shower, use a washcloth. Treat your face like the rest of your body, take a shower everyday or wash your face everyday.

The secret is keeping your face clean and oil-free. I also don't use liquid on my face for anything, and very little moisturizer, not even a dime size. Since my face is not dry. Good skin also comes from your good genes. Increase your fresh fruits & vegetables 3-5 servings per day. And programmed your mind to do this day after day, for the rest of your life.

The beauty industry is a trillion dollar business, they know acne is everyone's problem, but instead of saying soap is drying for you, they have to invent an acne product that can worsen the skin as MANY TEENAGERS have experienced during hormonal change, but as you get older those are completely a waste of time & money!

Sometimes just the oil on your face from make up and lotions, even from your hair can travel to your face causing acne to come out. Others, from stress, hormones & diet or foods.

Google: FIVE FOODS TO EAT FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN
All the vitamins & minerals you need for good skin care comes from all the healthy foods you eat from Mother Nature.

If acne's a problem, your pillowcases may be part of the cause. "They collect skin oil, dead skin cells, bacteria, and excess night creams," says David Bank, a professional Dermatology @ Columbia University/New York-Presbyterian Hospital. "But if nothing changed by 6 week the product will never work for you. Time to move on."

"If you have breakouts, dairy is the devil' it is inflammatory and will add hormones to your already hormone-rife system. Get calcium elsewhere, or try nonfat organic dairy products. For PMS breakouts, avoid dairy and bakery items the week before your period - sugar and flour are both causes for pimples and collagen." Dr. Jessica Wu, M.D. University of Southern California School of Medicine and author of the new book Feed Your Face.

SOMEONE WROTE TO ME the other day, ASKING IF THIS BRAND IS BETTER THAN THAT BRAND - FOUND @ DRUGSTORES THEN WROTE ME BACK & THANK ME, SHE LOOKED @ HER MOM'S SKIN AND THEY WERE GOOD, BUT SHE USES ONLY WATER TO WASH HER FACE. There you go, an update.

Lea Michele recently revealed her secret to clear skin—She gives it room to "breathe." "Maybe I'll put on a little mascara. But other than that I try very hard to just let my skin breathe," she told people.com. "I care more about letting my skin breathe than how I look."
Another good example is Lily Collins, actor, writer, artist: "When I travel to Europe, I go days without putting anything on. It feels healthier. I just never understood the idea of caking it on. The more you have on your face, the more there is to smudge and go wrong." Glamour - Sept. 2012.

How to have great, acne free skin?

Question by Joshua: How to have great, acne free skin?
I get pimples a lot and I do everything I can to prevent them with no prevail. My face gets so dry that it hurts after washing my face and then it gets oily throughout the day. I want to find a routine that I can do daily to have great looking skin.


Best answer:

Answer by meowama93
there are several things you can do:
one, you can root around for an acne wash brand. I personally use proactiv, and it's pretty decent. there's also neutrogena, clearasil, skinID, and a lot of others. if you go that route, you have to keep trying out different brands until you find what works for you.

two, you can go to the dermatologist. the dermatologist will give you special creams or antibiotics, but they'll also have to try different things to see what works for you. that might be a more direct approach, though.

i guess, on top of that, make sure you keep your hands clean. try not to touch your face too much. i also heard if you put a clean towel over your pillow each night, it helps prevent breakouts. On that note, make sure your sheets stay clean and wash your hair regularly.

Is it OK to take collagen supplements while breastfeeding?

Question by Miss Fitness: Is it OK to take collagen supplements while breastfeeding?
I wanted to start taking collagen for my hair and to hopefully maintain the growth that took place while I was pregnant. In my first pregnancy my hair had shed REALLY BAD. Anyways, my Gyno does not seem to know much about it, but then again she advises for me not to take anything while breastfeeding (she's older and more old fashioned). Has anyone breastfeeding ever took a collagen supplement before, or does anyone have a gyno that has told them it is ok to take? Please let me know :)

Thank you

I wouldn't have thought so. Everything you take or eat goes through to the milk. If you visit a health shop they have a book they look in and they can tell you. I wouldn't chance it I don't think.
