I've always moisturised my skin though it's really sensitive (I have psoriasis on my feet and legs) and have always been pleased with how it looks.
However, last year was rotten, (mum died, several family crises, had shingles for 2nd time and flu several times) and I had to take lots of medication as well as normal painkillers for arthritis. I think I'm in the menopause as my periods are sporadic and really heavy.
I'm fairly active and eat well, home prepared food, and I'm vegetarian.
Over last two weeks I've dyed my hair disasterously, burned my face with (house) cleaning materials and my face and neck look dreadful.
Has anyone got any advice, preferably on natural products, though at this rate I'll be mainlining botox by February!!
Sorry to burst in, but is Liz Earle really worth the money? My skin is really different also after last year - and was wondering what to do with mine... it's not dry, but very oily and congested... any recommendations.
Hope your skin looks super fab in jig time EarthyMama. How did Xmas go, so sorry for your loss. 12 years ago my dad died just before xmas, so I feel for you.
Can you get Boscia products where you are? Thair entire line contains willow herb which combats redness and irritation. It really sorted out my post-pregnancy horrible skin. Sephora.com carries Boscia... I hope that helps!! And I'm sorry for all your difficulties and stresses, no wonder you and your skin are upset. xxx
If you have got the £££s then I would recommend both Dr Hauscha and REN. Both are natural and get great reviews- Dr H rose doay cream and REN omega oil or franincense cream are great, as are their cleansers.
I'm going to save up for some posh stuff and go to town for the oils tomorrow.
I'm also having my hair cut so should be feeling and looking better soon.
TarkaLiotta re how I burned my face; I was cleaning the kitchen properly (rather than a half hearted swipe with the cloth ) using a popular environmentally safe cream when I sneezed and put my hand up to my face. 5 mins later it started itching but I really didn't connect it. I washed my face but it dried out and was bright red and flaky. This, along with the terrifying dye job, meant that DP deserves a medal for professing undying love over our New Year holiday.
Also I am feeling better health-wise so I managed to laugh about it all!!
