  3. I have these weird patches on my arms, more so on my left arm, which are sorta dry and scaly... I don't think scaly is really the right word really! They're sorta tiny raised dry bumps, raised from the hair follicle really. They never used to bother me, only when I got out the bath when I was a bit hot, but now they seem to irritate me all the time! Especially since we're having a mini-heatwave in the UK! They're so itchy! When I'm fresh out the bath/shower they are BRIGHT RED! And when I get hot they come out more, and I've now noticed that it seems to be spreading. I've been to the doctors about it and its definitely not eczema, but she said that its something to do with my hair follicles, and that I should just exfoliate and moisturise (which I do). I told her that I was applying hydrocortisone (HC45) cream to them orginally which another doctor advised which first of all did something then they came back, then I started using a betnovate cream which is a steroid cream often used for people with eczema, and she told me I shouldn't use it unless I really do have eczema because it thins your skin and can change the pigmentation in your skin so If I burn/tan I will end up with white blotches! Has anyone else experienced this/is experiencing this? If so what did you do/what are you using? I don't really want to waste a doctors appointment just for asking about it because she just told me last time to exfoliate and moisturise! I really need some help and advice because I'm really fed up of them! They didn't neccessarily bother me in winter/autumn because I wasn't wearing t-shirts/strapless tops but now that its arm baring time I feel so aware of them and feel like everyone will think I'm a skank or something haha. Thank you ladies

  5. I think most of us would agree that the best way to blow off steam at the end of a hard day or long week is to have a few cocktails. But, have you ever considered how those cocktails are affecting your overall health and beauty? Did you know that alcohol is one of the things that accelerate aging ? And can harm your beauty in a lot of other ways, too? Will it change your drinking habits in the future? Let's reconsider
  6. welcome! it's going to be fun here... enjoy
  7. Hey everyone, I'm really hoping I can get some good product recommendations here! I appreciate any advice or suggestions. I moved to Georgia from Southern CA about 3 years ago (I'm 26 now). Since moving to GA I have had all kinds of skin problems. My biggest concerns are combating acne and dry skin simultaneously. My skin has also become much more sensitive/red and I am more prone to have allergic reactions to topical products (never had a single allergic reaction when I was in CA). I've been going to a dermatologist for years now, but just can't seem to get my skin under control here in GA. Every time I visit CA my skin clears up and goes back to how it used to be. I would love to hear if anyone has had similar skin problems when moving to a new climate! I would also love to hear about any products anyone with similar problems has had success with! I really need a good cleanser, moisturizer, and foundation. I'm on topical prescriptions for the acne, so I'm not really looking for acne treatment products. I just need good gentle products that won't make me break out. Thanks for any ideas
  8. Does anyone know a good way to firm up skin without having a face lift? My skin just hangs off my cheekbones . My eyes are starting to droop down. I have not lost weight. I get enough sleep and drink a gallon of water a day. I moisturize like crazy. I hate looking frumpy. Mod note: sneaky link deleted.
  9. I recently wrote this blog post on DIY Manicure and Pedicure tips, and I thought I'd share it here as well. Here are my fool proof steps for great at-home nails! 1) Clean. Remove all your old polish and scrub your hands and feet with an exfoliating scrub. 2) Cuticles. Use a cuticle remover (I like Sally Hansen's) to soften up your cuticles, then push them away with a shaping stick. Make sure you wash off all the remover when you're done and don't leave it on your skin too long! 3) Cut and file. 4) Buff. 5) Prep. Lightly swipe a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol over each nail. 6) Prime. Use a strengthening bottom coat. 7) Polish. Use two coats, allowing a few minutes drying time in between. 8) Top coat. I LOVE Sally Hansen's "Dries Instantly" top coat - it really dries the polish quickly and helps me avoid nicks or smudges. 9) Moisturize. Once the polish is dry, use a Vitamin-E rich oil to moisturize your nail beds and shine up your polish job. Voila, you're done! Good luck!
