Hi Barefoot and everyone on this forum,
I never actually fancied using any moisturizing products for my face (www.cosmeticdatabase.com .. read it!!) coz I knew it w be much better to use vegetable juices or/ and simply wash face with bottled water to reduce drying. Plus if u eat a lot of fruits and vegies then ur skin simply feels and looks good.Then I read in one of the forums here that coconut oil can be used all over the body (plus as a food supplements)and, I thought, using it for face also wouldn't be bad. Here in Glasgow a tab water is drying my skin. So, I thought why not to use a coconut oil for my face (including the area under eyes). I think I have been doing it for couple of months at least (and was pretty happy about the feeling on my skin. I have notices though that when I smile I have a bit more wrinkles under my eyes. I thought it was due to the fact I am 32 and have quite big eyes. A week ago, while having a day off, I decided not to put any lipstick on and instead use a coconut oil throughout a day. At the end of the day I had a feeling that a skin on my lips was kind of rough (not that soft, lips required pilling, 'stale' effect... sorry just trying to find the right word coz I am not originally English speaking)... So, basically it made me think that the 'extra wrinkle effect' under my eyes could be not due to 'getting older' but rather due not proper use of 'healthy' moisturizer under my eyes. The skin under my eyes now a bit rough (not soft enough)....... So the question here is WHAT SHOULD I DO TO MAKE MY SKIN SOFTER (taking into consideration that I dont trust any moisturizing stuff from famous brands (see above mentioned web site) and I rather go for something natural)??... Now I am on 4th day of my juice fast.. Will it help my skin if I go for longer days (I am going at least for 10 days and may be longer)? WILL it help my skin to recover??? Actually skin on my face and body looks normal. The only concern is the skin under my eyes.. A water fast??? Well, actually I am planning to be just on water from time to time being on juice fast... Any natural remedies??? My juice fast??
