I soak my feet in a bath of apple cider vinegar diluted with water - about 30 min to an hour. Then I buff my feet - and the skin just rolls off. I used to by expensive foot creams and pedicure tools - since finding the ACV, I don't need them anymore.

I use the coconut oil as a mask for deep conditioning once a week.

I am amazed at how nature's products have been manmade hands down!

Definitely sunscreen--so glad I didn't enjoy laying out when I was younger! But I got some horrible sunburns as a kid on vacation in Florida. It hurt to bend my knees!

So a good high PPD sunscreen would have been great if it had existed at that time.

Also, my mom just found out she has the beginning of cataracts. She found out that not all sunglasses block both UVA and UVB, most aren't dark enough, and the small frames don't provide enough protection. So since inadequate sunglasses is her regret, that is something I'm going to make sure to avoid.

I don't like to wear sunscreen because I'm so lazy to use makeup remover every night, although I definitely know how harmful UV is. After reading the posts, I think I should start to use it now.

If I had known about the NaturDerm products, I could have saved myself probably into the thousands! No other product line has made such a difference in my skin, or my appearance. These products took easy 15 years off of my face and neck. I look at pictures and can't believe that in my 50's my skin looks better than when I was in my 30's. I like that it is a smart skin care line, natural and organic, silicone free and the products multi task, and are concentrated. Everything is anti aging pH so there are no toners. It is so fast, it takes me maybe 2 minutes twice a day. It is hard to say what my favorite is, I can't do without the Epidermx II, but I love the Triple Lavender Face Foam and the Chrysalyx smells so incredible, and leaves my face glowy and tight, which I love because it was starting to sag! I have noticed lines that were around my eyes and mouth are flattening since I started to use the Naturdermx non botox. I like that they use the pure AH3 instead of the paraben loaded Argireline. EDS has them or www.greatnewskin.com

I suggest everyone use sunscreen products as earlier as possible, since these products are very very essential in our life.
With sunscreen, our skin may suffer sun shine for whole day long, therefore wrinkles, spots would come to our face when we are so young...

oh yes..sunblock is my friend. i'm a natural red head. not bright red..more like redish brown..but i have the sensitive, semi freckly, burns quite easy skin so i've always been a fan of sunblock. although last year i moved to los angeles for college and i've never felt so self consious about my pale skin! i started going to a tanning bed every other day for about 2 months and got my skin to a normal persons color (nothing you would call tan but i didnt feel as self consious). i always put a lot of lotion on right after that so it wouldnt dry out, and i never peeled at all last year..but i suppose i'm still doing damage. i can get away with being pale during the winter months because everyone else is..but during the summer i just want to feel okay in shorts! do you think a month (every other day) at a tanning salon will do a lot of damage? or is it more like 5 months outside in the sun with baby oil that will really do damage? i know i'm more prone to skin cancer..but cmon..los angeles..theres not another city in this country where people make such a deal about tan skin! thanks a lot for your reply..so what do you think, am i okay with a month at the salon or should i just give it up?


Your response reminded me of another "if I knew then what I know now" kind of moment...I wish that when I was in college, I loved my looks as much as I do now! I was *so* concerned with having a tan in high school and college (I wanted to be Heather Locklear Sad ) - Needless to say, it never happened - I am of Irish background - naturally dark hair (that I tried to bleach for years) with blue eyes and milk bottle skin!! I encourage you to ditch the suntan studio and just be a glorious, unique, kinda freckly redhead!! Never mind the L.A.look....three cheers for the Cait look, rather the "Cait in LA look!"
Pudoodles Very Happy


Oh yes, she should quit tanning. Pale skin on a redhed is beautiful and unique. Learn to love who you are Cait!

Prevage eye cream (finally, a cream I can apply all over my eyes) and I would not have foregone sunscreen that one summer for an SPF 15 tinted moisturizer--big mistake. So, I guess add my DDF Photo Age spf 30 to that list, too!

LUMIGAN!!!!





kidding!
Sunscreen with high SPF/PPD. All we had was the PABA crap growing up and it burned and produced rashes in me so I avoided it like the plague. I did wear a thick coat of Pancake (remember that?) though which may have saved me from the California sun somewhat.

Most definitely SUNCREEN from an early age (and never started smoking!) and last but not least I would have started using retin-a from 30 onward...I would've had a very nice head start on this aging thing.. But, hindsight is 20/20 and luckily I am still at an age where I can ward off any more damage and I don't have any wrinkles yet....wish I could say the same for the droopies! Rolling Eyes Laughing
