  1. Hi guys, i got some advice from healthoid and I think that including more fats in my diet may have the desired effect in normalising the skin. Thinking something like this: brek - eggs and bacon with wholewheat toast and butter mid morning - chicken legs and rice lunch - beef stew with rice full fat ice cream dinner - chilli con carne with lamb mince cherry pie with double cream what do you think? sounds pretty good to me! i had bacon and eggs fried in oil last week followed by ice cream
  2. Hi all, Let me just give you a little background on myself to put this request in context. I have had an ongoing problem with dry skin on my nose, in the centre of my forehead, and on the inside of my lips since taking Roaccutane for acne a few years ago. The problem is relatively minor being restricted to a relatively small part of my face, and being a sort of mild-medium dryness rather than a full on eczema type condition. I am sure that many other roaccutane users will have experienced the
  3. Hi all, I am new to this site and I have enjoyed reading some interesting articles! I wanted to ask some advice about finding some new products to wash with. I would like to try some natural products for cleansing, and washing my hair, body, and hands. I would also like to find a natural moisturiser and a lip balm. Let me just give you a little background on myself to put this request in context. I have had an ongoing problem with dry skin on my nose, in the centre of my forehead, and on the
  4. is everyone who took roaccutane experiencing this same side effect, or is it just me?
  5. is there a way that I can conquer this dryness/build up of skin without using moisturisers because I do find it impossible to use any more products than just a basic cleanser. is this dryness that I am experiencing or is it just a build up of skin (ichtyosis) or both?
  6. thanks guys. does anyone have any suggestions as to why this problem has occurred in the first place? it cant be roaccutane because that was years ago. do you think that i should go and get checked out at the doctors to see whether it is some kind of internal problem? thanks again.
  7. Hi all, I'm Chris from the UK. I took roaccutane in late 2003 for 3 months. I cant remember the exact dose but it was moderate. I have experienced ongoing dryness/unwanted build up of skin around my nose and forehead ever since. I am desperate for a permanent solution to this because I haven’t left the house in years because of the dry skin (I am afraid it will be more susceptible to sun damage). Let me just give you a little bit of background so that you understand where I am coming from. I r
  8. Hi all, I finished on roaccutane about 3 years ago and had ongoing dry skin on my nose and in the centre of my forehead. I haven't been able to find a permanent solution and I don't like using products (such as moisturisers) so I haven't had a temporary solution either. After reading posts on here I found out about the liver cleanse method which had worked for some people. My medical herbalist put together a herbal cleanse for me which I have been taking for a while without the desired effect.

  10. Thanks to everyone for their recommendations. I have now bought a whole raft of Glenn Harrold CD's so you should get some sort of commission Raph! I will feed back on them when I have used them for a while. Did you try the body healing CD Raph, and how did it go?
  11. Hi Guys, I bought a pH boosting kit this week to add to my water, as a cheaper alternative to an ioniser: http://www.wellnessunlimited.uk.com/viewpr...d=10&Group= Have just started to use the drops, adding them to water in a shaker, then shaking it all about for maximum benefit? Very interesting to me because this system could really improve the effectiveness of your diet routine by helping the body utilise the nutrients more effectively. Has anyone else tried this product and if so what
  12. Hi everybody, Just a quick update. I'm just starting on what I hope will be a programme to overcome this dry skin and pimple issue. I have taken out what I believe to be the key Vitamin A foods. I am still eating rice, wholegrain bread, and shredded wheat but have stopped tortillas, pasta and oats. I am eating a 40/50/10 ratio of protein/carbs/fats in about 6 meals throughout the day and drinking 2 green drinks. I am eating more white meat and fish and drinking more water. I am eating natural
  13. Hi guys, thanks for your input on this thread. I still need a little bit of help and would appreciate it very much. My concern about the epsom salt/olive oil method was that i was worried that the epsom salt might produce pigmentation in us (humans!) in the same way that it produces plant pigment. Call me crazy but I do get a bit wound up about these things and simply want some reassurance this will not be the case. Of course, if this reassurance is not possible, is there another similar method
  14. What results have you had HBC? I'm looking for a method to soften and moisten dry skin myself. One other point of note is that I'm in England, UK, so product recommendations which I can get over here would be appreciated. Thanks everyone
