    Hey guys,

    I wanted to see what some of you guys are using on your face/skin for cleansers and moisturizers? Preferably without too many chemicals or not at all? I been thinking that I need to really start treating my skin alot better externally since my skin isn't going to get any younger. lol Sepcifically, food based beauty products that makes your face smoother and prevents aging? Maybe there is some book out there or website about recipes to make to use on your skin?


    Thanks in advance icon_cool.gif

    First of all what is your skin type?
    Normal?
    Dry?
    Combanation?
    or
    Oily?

    You can't use the same products that everyone else uses.

    DRINK PLENTY OF WATER!!! that's right, you heard it!!..WATER is nature's preferred and best moisturizer that does guarantee real results, and best of all is free!!!! since I turned 30 I drink at least eight glasses of water daily religiously!!! I have noticed a huge improvement on the texture and smoothness on the skin of my face!!

    Since talking about combination skin would take me years and years and years to write about. Here is a great explanation I found about combo skin that goes into detail. hope you like it. icon_biggrin.gif

    Natural products.

    http://www.lushusa.com/shop

    http://www.100percentpure.com/

    http://www.smbessentials.com/

    www.thebodyshop-usa.com/

    I also came across this site from some guy called www.urbanstag.com/

    Drink 16 glasses of water a day,because throughout the day you loose water from Heat,exercising or using the rest room.

    The only food based products a person can make without a chemistry set are masks lol. (just google search that and see what you like)

    also wear sunscreen and try to avoid the sun as much as you can unless you're going to the beach. I swear there are sooo many guys on this site that look like hand bags soo dry and leathery.

    hope i did not miss anything. icon_biggrin.gif

    A bit or orange peel (dried and powdered) with alove vera juice and a bit of milk. Orange helps cleasing the skin and removing dead cells, milk mosturises and aloe smoothes it. Got this one from my mom.

    DCEric asked, "Which cheeks?"

    Bill looks at Doug, "Should we tell him?"

    For breakouts, apply a layer of plain yogurt to the face and let dry. Rinse off with water. The active cultures in the yogurt helps fight the bacteria that forms in your pores. You will see a difference in about 2 weeks.

    unless you buy them organic, using fruits, vegetables etc doesn't avoid exposure to chemicals. They're filled with them, some are on the peel , others are systemic.

    If you want good advice, seek out a professional. An esthetician ( sp ) will examine your skin and tell you what should work.
    You can still react to any product so you have to try.

    I used the Karin Herzog products ( Swiss) . Not cheap but high quality.
    ... and so fucking gay..lol.

    I started taking care of myself (more seriously) at 28. I have been in and out of the sun and chlorinated pools all my life so I try to offset all of that with daily and nightly moisturizing with Eucerin and Neutrogena Sesame for the face and body. I use eye creams like Neutrogena anti-oxidant age reverse eye cream and Oil of Olay total effects - or others I've tried and liked. One of the best moisturizing products I like as well is Creme de la Mer. I'm trying to keep up with my friends Tony and Bob........both of whom look swell!

    Speaking of chlorine, don't forget that it's probably in your tap water as well. Obviously, not at the level of a swimming pool, but substantial nonetheless in my opinion. Get yourself a shower filter.

    A friend of mine turned me on to the Evan Healy skin care line a while back and I'm hooked. The Sea Algae Serum http://www.evanhealy.com/evanweb/main/shelves10.asp is the best product I have ever found for my skin. Pricey, but worth it.

    I use Kiehls products, I think they are working because I get compliments on my skin and have really young guys 18-21 thinking im around their age! Garnier products are really good too, esp skin renewal...make you whatever you have has SPF to prevent further wrinkles GL!

    i use honey and lime juice after i shave and have washed my face with cold water. use it as a moisturizer. Got that tip from my dad as it prevents ingrown hairs and get rid of any spots you have from pimples etc.
