The skin is closely linked to the blood stream; it turns out that many of the creams and chemicals applied to our skin get absorbed into our blood stream- yuck!

i don't use moisturisers, have you ever read the labels!!
Our skin is the largest ORGAN we have.
If i ever need to add moisture to my skin i use vitamin A & vitamin E capsules, the sort that are for ingesting, you just prick it with a pin & apply.

Mine def isn't since i use only natural oils. These oils like almond oil are far superior to any moisturizer on the market plus none are tested on animals. thx Nancy

Luckily I've known this for some time. I use straight oil and my dry, dry skin is now gone. One of my friends only uses coconut oil but when you run out, you can even use olive oil. These are much cheaper and benefits are great.

Never used them moisturizers; never ever. If any, it'll be rose water/cucumber juice.
Thanks Nancy

As with those above, use natural products now that I gained some wisdom. Tea, herbs, coconut & olive oil, now and then acidy fruits & straight lemon oil. Perfect skin at nearly 69, no wrinkles, age spots and not even any lines. Thanks Nancy.
