I am one also. I always check there before buying a product or simply google the name and get the reviews as many as possible.

Some of the members have awesome notepads, too. Check out "sunscreens" notepad for the definitive explanation of all things sunscreen-related.

Thanks Peri,
I use the Bulkactives recipe tweaked a little bit...I leave out the hyaluronic acid and the d-panthenol (too sticky). I like it for now, until I get brave enough to tackle the Immort.org one! Thanks for posting it - I may get ambitious!

yeah, I'm MUA all the way baby! sorry...a little bored. I never purchase something (that's worth some money) unless I read reviews and they are usually spot on for me.

Hello!
I`m new here. And I was wondering if someone can tell me if it is effective to apply cremes with vitamins? Are vitamins molecules small enough to penetrate the skin? Because after reading here awhile, I learned that collagen molecule is too large to penetrate the skin and should be taken orally.

Also I have a question, if some cremes do work, can you tell me which ones?


And the last one: how much drinking water helps my skin condition?

Thanks!!!

Hi and welcome!

Drinking water helps to keep the kidneys working and this helps the skin work better!

Creams with vitamins? Who knows. I like to keep the C and E in a serum by themselves for better absorption. Here's an article that might help you form an opinion about which active ingredients you want to use:

Topical Skin Rejuvenation Treatments

Different things work better for different problems, but most importantly be sure to wear sunscreen!!

Hi fawnie do you think it be alright if i add bout a 1/4 teaspoon of the viterol a to me vit c serum, i have the rest of the ingrendients needed for the ferulic vit c serum? I looked breifly before on the american websites but could not see any ferulic on there, so just wondering if i can use the viterol instead!

Thank!

Mika i add vitamins to the cream that i made up at home a little while ago, as long as these are suitable for diy use, then as far as im aware they can be a good antioxident for the skin!

Personally though id use extra vitamins for the skin as a seperate thing, after you have used your vit c serum!

As long as you use what is correct for your skin type then you should not have a problem with this, if you google around a bit though you will prob get some good info on the net bout vitamins in skin care products too!
