What's the best way to make your face and skin look better?
03-09-2008 01:07 PM
I'm 46, but look much younger. [I still have no problem getting hot young chicks -- and I'm talking like 18-22's at work, the gym, my tanning girls, etc. But I've just recently begun to feel guilty about it, and now I always tell them my age up front, and usually shy away from any involvement if they're too young, so don't rip me for being a perv, lol.] But anyway, if I have a "secret" (other than genetic luck), it's to do as little as possible. I used to wash/scrub my face at least twice a day, and use all the various products that are supposed to be good for your complexion. But I slowly figured out that these can be very irritating to your skin's natural chemistry. I started to notice that when I'd go hiking/climbing and sweat like a swine, without really washing my face for days at a time, my complexion always looked great when I got back to civilization.
So now I just splash a little lukewarm water on my face once a day, and rarely use soap at all (on my face). This alone seems to be the most effective "fountain of youth" I've discovered. Just let your skin find it's own healthy balance.

There are several environmental factors that can also dramatically effect how your skin appears. Everyones environmental situation is different and should be considered.

I've definitely heard this before, probably as far back as middle school health class. I for one don't sleep well on my back so when I sleep on my side or my stomach I naturally sleep with my face to the pillow. Whether that makes a difference I'll never know, but I'd rather sleep with my face on the pillow and actually get some rest than sleep on my back with my face up and get no rest at all. The latter is probably worse for your complexion anyway.

I simplified things and just starting using this yesterday... Damn, this stuff works really well, and it's only been a day...
Use it as a moisturizer pre-bed, then wash off in the morning... You can also use it during the day... That's what I'm doing...

Hey I know this is an older post, but I've felt that I've made a discovery, but then again a lot of people already knew this.
So I haven't washed my hair with any shampoo for about the last 2 days, and amazingly my hair, skin, and face look a lot better than before, I'm really amazed by this. I guess my face kind of had a washed out look to it but now it looks like all the oil and whatnot is in there and it's great. I'm thinking I'm gonna go for a while without washing my hair.
I am also thinking of getting an organic shampoo that doesn't contain sodium lauryl sulfate or something similar to that, this ingredient is an industrial chemical and some people even say it causes hair loss.
My advice to anyone who washes their hair everyday is to give not washing it a try.

Interesting... You should check out DS Labs Revita Hair Stimulating Shampoo... That's the shampoo I've been using for... a little over a week now and I really like it.
Anyways, I really like this product called Sensation Spa Dead Sea Facial Peel... You can find it for 22.95 on Amazon.com
The stuff is amazing and makes your skin feel incredibly soft, without leaving it feeling dry...
Anyways, I have a new regimen and my skin is responding really well to it.
Face Wash: Now Virgin Coconut Oil/Sensation Spa Dead See Facial Peel
Face Lotion: Juvess Moisturizer
Misc: Decleor Clay and Herbal Cleansing Mask
At my age, my skin has a tendency to fluctuate and considering I am prone to breaking out at times from different supplements, I tend to do a lot of trial and error.
My sister has really nice skin and when she came to visit, she brought along the dead sea facial peel and well... Man, the product worked really well. Hence why I am now a fan and thus ordered some.
Biotest Super Foods
Enzymedica Digest Gold for digestion
Poseidon (although, I don't use this everyday)...
Anyways, I will post a picture up in June... The only thing I plan on using along with my regimen is Castor Oil and RPN Atomic Meltdown. Castor Oil along with Coconut Oil for face wash. Although I do plan on dropping on the Clay and Herbal Cleansing mask at some point, since I am waiting for the facial peel to come in the mail...
Anyways, this is a long post, but after three days on the regimen, my skin went from looking okay to starting to look really good... Thus my self esteem has improved. I kind of follow a raw foods diet, one of my main concerns is just making sure I am able to digest my foods as efficiently as possible... But yeah, I have a tendency to get excited when I find products that work, considering I used to have nice skin, but then bam... Certain supplements messed that up for me, thus I am now avoiding any supplement that breaks me out now... I have also not taken a multivitamin for over a week now; I was using AOR Ortho Core and will probably start using it again in June when I decide to buy it again. So hmm... Hopefully my regimen continues to work and my progress pics show this.
