i need a good lotion for my body that will help correct and prevent more sun damage! Any suggestions? I have been using Curel Restore and Revive and I like it but I cant really say its correcting anything. Plus it doesnt have sunblock in it!

Jeez, Yellow Rose ... (I have creamy yellow roses crawling all over the window as I write). I make a cream that works a miracle, but I'm not allowed to advertise it on here! When I'm famous and my brandname gets chucked around and approved or not, I'll let you know what's in it ... in the meantime, go find someone who makes a cream because they HAD to to save their own skin ... hmmmm ... tap,tap,tap ... if you want to respond, I guess I can give you some tips for your stovetop if you want to make your own ...

You may need more than a cream. Try peels and acid peels, they will relly work well at helping with your sun damage.

While using peels such as alpha hydroxy acids, you need to stay out of the sun to avoid further damage.

I am a chemist by profession and I am not a believer in chemical peels. There's nothing good about subjecting your fragile, probably already damaged, skin to the harshness of chemicals. The best treatment for sun damage is to avoid the sun. But since this is a little too late in your situtation, I would make sure my skin is fully hydrated and use a product that contains antioxidants. There are options such as botox and botox-mimic alternatives.

Visit my website for additional information on skin care. Hope that helps.

Generally speaking, most of the women in this world that look "young" at an older age have not used dermabrasion, chemical peels or the sort

Sunscreen, sunscreen and more sunscreen. This is probably one of the best skin care products you can possibly use. There are no products available over the counter that are going to have a huge impact on sun damage that has already occurred. Fraxel Laser is an excellent treatment for sunspots.

Just curious if you can tell me some creams to make at home for normal/dry skin with a few lines. I am 48 and my skin is in pretty good condition, but always looking for something better. Thanks for any help! Gina

I guess there are two things here. The first, in order to prevent MORE sundamage you need to be religious in your application of sunblock. Dermalogica makes a nice one called ultra faceblock. Secondly, you can reduce or eliminate your current sundamage with a series of gentle peels (mild acids or gentle enzymes) or a few IPL sessions. Fraxel will work as well, but is generally more expensive, and unless you have deep melasma it is not needed.

Well no yellow rose, I'm afraid no amount of cream or special brand or most expensive cream will correct. You won't see anything happening BUT if you diligently use a sunblock to prevent further damage you would be well ahead of the game.

Hi would love to hear about some of your ingredients as a pointer please Lulu


The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.
