lotion suggestions?

for me, I'm a huge fan of both shea butter and coconut oil for general skin care. All I use on my body, while it is still damp from the shower, is extra-virgin coconut oil - no lotion comes even...

I need a haircut!

so do I, even though my overall length looks pretty good, but the ends have been getting so-o tangly and no amount of conditioning is helping in that area - it's really time for a trim after 6...

Hi mar! wow - I feel your pain! In this case, you're wise to get to that dermatologist that your doctor is going to refer you to. Good luck and hope your skin gets better with the right regimen. It's...

hormonal acne

All good advice here, but what you were doing has not touched the real culprit, shifting hormones! No, you don't have to go on hormone therapy - traditional Chinese medicine comes to the rescue in a...

dry hair

Yes that Feria conditioner from Sally's is very good. Another really good one is the L'Oreal Nature's Therapy Mega Moisture Nurturing Creme, also available at Sally's, or Amazon(I just looked). Have...

Ack! this dating at my age thing is getting me down!

Can't offer direct advice because I've been married for 22 years, but I can say this - from what I hear, I would absolutely HATE to be out on the dating market again. Likely I just wouldn't bother,...

Help! I can't get my hair to behave!

Thanks, discobug - I'll have to look into these! Since earlier in today, I thought I'd try the homemade protein pack recipe from LCLF. Right afterwards, I still wasn't sure, but now, my hair feels...

"I'm not ready to go gray yet, with many of the same issues you have. I am definitely not a winter as I always supposed. And I look a lot less haggard with warmer and lighter hair against my light...

Hair colors for brown skin

I'm assuming you have naturally either very dark brown or black hair, correct? Anyhow, it seems that some beautiful deep bronzes, caramels, deep coppers, or auburn or even mahogany colors would be...

What would you do?

Your hair looks GREAT the color it is! Maybe some golden-strawberry highlights instead? I wouldn't go too light of a solid color if I were you - that red just suits you really well. But the...

coloring grey

Wow - 8 weeks before roots show, or even 5-6 weeks? You're doing great! Lots of people with grey hair have their roots show at only 2-3 weeks, maybe 4 at best. You have to remember that hair grows,...

Semi Permanent that Works!

That Colorspa is a good product, but getting harder and harder to find, and when you do find it, they only have a few shades at the drugstore. Seems like they made room for ColorMatch which gets fair...

Help - I can't get my hair to behave at all!

Is there any kind of foundation that doesn't settle into wrinkles?

This is so much a "YMMV" thing - what works for one person's skin another one will absolutely hate - LOL! For instance, mineral makeup and me DON'T get along at all. I tried the Jane Iredale, and no...

Hi rudeechick! What do you use that is so good, and do you have skin that can take treatments? I know this makes a big difference too. Like you, I am very research-oriented. However, even though I...

Help, I can't get my hair to behave at all!

found out Sarah Palin's lip gloss!

Isn't there a story about Carmex being really addicting, in that the more one applies it, the more one needs it, because it actually DRIES the lips out, or something? I've never used a lip balm...

paging RedCatWaves - a newbie to active skincare here!

I feel for you. I've had some chemical burns from over-ambitious use of anti-aging products, particularly acids, and they can be difficult to heal. The longer I use Retin-A, though, the less I...

Pictures of my first henna
