    Anyone use these products? I am really tempted to start using it for my lotion since my skin does take quite a beating in the summer and winter from running outdoors.

    Let's just say that the skin on a particular part of my body is as smooth and supple as Vaseline advertises.icon_redface.gif

    My feet get really dry in the summer here in AZ, so I use good old fashion Vaseline on them before I put my socks on and it works wonders.

    I'd be wary, it make block your pores. I use Cetaphil for body lotion, seems to work well.

    petrolatum and mineral oil seem like two good reasons not to use some of these products.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidI'm not a big fan of using petroleum based products on my body. If you guys want better skin there are more healthy alternatives that aren't linked to carcinogens


    Got any suggestions?

    Last summer I had a spot of skin cancer taken off my face. I was given petroleum gelly to cover the wound. When I asked about using "Neosporin" I was told that using products like that promote the growth of "Super Bugs".

    It can to an extent. When antibiotics are used improperly, the bacteria that you are trying to find can mutate and become immune to the affects. This is why we must continually research new antibiotics because the bacteria are becoming more and more resilient. When your doctor gives you antibiotics, use them as directed. DO NOT stop using them when you are feeling better. This is what causes problems.

    Back to the issue at hand, I recommend dermalogica. They are great for your skin and very good. Only down side is, they are very expensive products. I use them though and love 'em!

    Vaseline will make the skin on your body supple and beautiful forever if you use it regularly; similarly, its an old women's secret to put it under the eyes before sleep to remove puffiness and to give you that fresh shine the next day.

    Also, the skin of your cock will thank you if you put a bit there too.icon_eek.gif

    Yep, you're gay. But maybe I'm stereotyping. icon_lol.gif

    Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion. It's the best and it's non-greasy.

    Vaseline is gross and always relate it to babĂ­es' bottoms

    Having said that, in our cold,dry,windy, winters, I do smear it on my face before heading out on a long run. Nothing else can keep my face baby smooth.

    Washing that shit off is a whole other story, my face still gleams a little afterward.

    I don't put petrolium on my skin. I use natural alternatives.

    I have seen some guys on here who have really great skin. I don't have bad skin by any means, but I would certainly like a more clear, even complexion. Since we're all on the topic, what do you suggest? I do believe that natural is better, but I have to be careful about what I use because I seem to break out if there's too much fragrance and crap in it.

    So, who has the secret they're willing to share?

    It shouldn't.... Vaseline is NOT water-based and therefore can tear your jimmy-hat making it a bad choice o lube.

    And now on topic,

    As someone who has really strong Eczema, I know about keeping skln moist. Rule of thumb is that ointments like Vaseline work the best and keeping moisture in. Just about any lotion is awful because its only a slight step up from using water. The nice part is that your're generally not as greasy as with Vaseline. I use Eucerin Moisturizing Creme most of the time both for it's fragrance free qualities and it's balance between moisture and non-greasiness. The drawbacks are that it's hella expensive and it's really, really thick.

    scothman - I use Dermalogica too and it is brilliant stuff. But yes, quite pricey indeed. I can't use Vaseline products as there is some ingredient in it that causes me to break out in a rash...don't know what it is as. The cruel part is that I was using Vaseline to soothe the rash then it disappeared when I was visiting my mother and used a product she had and the rash returned when I went home and used my Vaseline again. But my mother, being a bit eccentric, uses a product called Udderly Smooth. It is something that cow farmers use to soften the teats of a cow for milking. It is cheaper (but harder to find) than Dermalogica but not made from petroleum products.

    Isn't it funny how many guys never used any moisturizer when we were in our twenties - no sun screen either - we just baked and got dark as we could with Hawaiian Tropic or no oil at all?

    When I hit about 30, a good friend who was a cosmetology major turned me onto 3 cool products - and I alternate using each of them:

    Eucerin
    Neutrogena
    Lubriderm

    It just takes a couple of minutes of your day to use this stuff - and it feels good as well. There are a couple of good products for feet and heels - also. Guys with good looking hands / feet / nails (mani's and pedi's) are the hottest guys around! Also - there are a few things to use under our eyes - just apply it carefully with your two small fingers - since I'm told we have almost no oil glands under the eyes - we have to give nature a little help!
