I have a lot of skin tags and I hate them. I found a great way to get rid of them on the internet though and it's easy and way cheaper than the doctor. You tie a piece of string (I use floss) around the skin tag and tie it tight. I then cut the ends so I can go out in public without people noticing. A day or two later the skin tag turns black and a day or so after that it falls off.

After eliminating wheat from my diet, one month in, my skin is at rest.
I always felt my body was too acid or something, always excessively dry and itchy; due to my allergies. After taking wheat/Gluten out of my diet my skin is finding rest. It is not dry and itchy, retains moisture better, and I feel much better to say the least! Yeah!
DIY Facial - a lovely treat without a trip to the expensive beauticians
Put on some relaxing music...light some scented candles...first cleanse your face with a normal cleanser... then steam your face over a bowl of boiling water for approx. 10 mins...then exfoliate as directed (I use St Ives Apricot Scrub)...next add any face mask (clay or whatever suits) and leave on for the directed time...finally wash this off and moisturise if you need - et voila - healthy glowing skin without the mega price tag. I just use ordinary skin products from the chemist or supermarket
My family members have a dog tag with their name, address and a cell phone contact number. The tag is worn when we run or are on vacation. When they were little, my kids knew that if lost, to show the tag to a police officer or store clerk. We also pinned hotel business cards inside their pockets.
