Hi, I'm new on these forums I don't do alot of research about skincare, I'm more into dietician cause I believe the inside out theory more. I recently found out that I had or may have celiac disease a digestive disorder, and cause I learned it late, I've developed really bad skin. Some of its symptons like eczema, acne which later became acne scars, and lots of discolouration in my face and neck area. Also, something I've put to much on my face for aleast 5 years apparently thinned my skin, now I know that is bad for you but just wasn't sure exactly why so any help there would be nice and if there was something to save it.

I would like some recommendations or tips as to what is best for my skin now, preferrably natural ingredients. As a reference, I'm planning to use the following Aloe Vera Gel, Rosehip oil for the scars and homeuse Microdermabrasion procedure.

The main thing to look for is skin care products that are water based. Most products are oil based which may make your skin feel better and look better but your skin cells need water to hydrate it, nothing else will do period.
The one reason most products are oil based is that bacteria readily grows in water so the product spoils easily and quickly. The skin care line I use utilises a patented water filtration and enhancement system which creates pure water in which bacteria cannot grow. This means no need for preservatives! Woohoo. Also, this line has no fragrance, no alcohol, non comodegenic and has been allergy tested. If you want more info or have any questions, message me

U can try this quick chinese medicine recipe, this is what u use. Either way, sour food are good for digestion system.

Egg (1) - fresh and white shelled. Wash the egg as well as possible so that it's free of bacteria.

Vinegar (200g) - Chinese black vinegar! Very important to buy Chinese rice based black vinegar.

Honey or sugar

Glass container - opening has to be big enough to put in the egg. It's recommended to buy container that seals well. Boil the contain to rid of the bacteria.

Put the egg into the container and pour 200g of black vinegar into the container. Seal the contain well with tapes and store it in the fridge for 48 hours.

After 48 hours, the egg should appear bigger and the egg shell should already melt into the vinegar. There's only a think layer surround the expanded egg. Break the egg and mix the whole egg with rest of the vinegar.

Separate the sauce into 5-7 portion. Each day, mix one portion of the vinegary egg sauce with 3-5 times more water and some honey and sugar. Drink it with or after meal.

Note: Drink no more that instructed, because to much vinegar can cause strong stomach reaction.

Lavender oil is great for calming irritated skin. Also tea tree oil is a good spot treatment for acne. Vitamin E oil is best for scars Also if you take Evening Primrose oil as a supplement it helps repair thin or damaged skin from the inside out. Hope that helps = )

Hi there,

Your skin's appearance depends on the overall state of your health. As regards beauty products you are right in considering natural products. Remember to include a sun-block or high SPF sun-cream.

I myself bought for about £10 a home microdermabrasion pack but have not used it because I read it's much better to have a beauty salon procedure.
Glycolic acid mild peels are inexpensive and you can be sure you are getting the right level of ingredients.

However, you mention a thinning of your skin. I wondered if you were aware of study done in Finland some years ago. It was published in the British Journal of Dermatology.

It alluded to the fact that athletes and people who exercise regularly have thicker, stronger skin. Aerobic exercise such as jogging, skipping or rebounding [my favourite all-time exercise programme] will benefit your skin.

They increase your circulation which supplies your complexion with the oxygen it needs for efficient cell metabalism.

This should make your skin glow. But there's no substitute for the right diet. It's important to drink 8-10 glasses of water daily and to eat a diet rich in anti-oxidants and vitamins to keep your skin looking the best,

Warmest regards,

redrose
