In Topic: Moisturizing with oils!

12 June 2014 - 08:47 AM

old thread but this one is important:

 

Before I use Virgin coconut oil as a all around body and facial mositurizer, it was okay and did not cause any irritation for me. However, I am now also a convert of SUNFLOWER OIL.

 

This is oil is even better than virgin coconut oil. No smell, very light and much easier absorbed by the skin.

 

Great as hair serum equal to coconut oil. So much better as a facial mositurizer because of its lightening benefits on dark spots. Smooth and soft skin as body oil.

 

Highly recommended! You do not need to buy the expensive cosmetic sunflower oil; just buy the food grade sunflower oil which is high in polyunsaturated fats and you are good to go :)


In Topic: The ultimate shaving thread

12 June 2014 - 08:32 AM

My shaving routine to combat ingrown hair and lessen acne problems:

 

1. Wash my face with a facial cleanser

2. Apply Shaving Cream - I am using VMV Hypoallergenics Shaving Cream; please do not use the aerosol type shaving cream; you may also use a tradional shaving cream or soap; and optional a badger hair brush for extreme luxury and lather

3. Shave using a safety razor

4. Wet face with cold water

5. Apply witch hazel toner or your favorite toner to serve as aftershave

6. Apply sunflower oil to the shave area to mositurize

 

This solve a lot of skin irration for me. My skin always get irratated with multiple blades that dulls quickly and the lubricant strip that creates bumps while it glides.

In Topic: Why Does My Body Require Higher Maintenance Compared To Teens My Age?

I feel your pain, why I have to do highly controlled diet, exercise, skin care and supplement regimen. Any misstep, and acne may get worse :D My advice, since your still a teen is just enjoy life, smile more and have a positive mindset. Remember, appearances are only skin deep, it is how we see things in our life that is more important and worthy of pursuit.

 

Hope that helps :)
