Great Tips...............Thank You.
going into fall & winter this was a timely article for me! I use olive oil and sugar so I can exfoliate the feet! I mainly use the sensitive skin tips but staying away from harsh chemicals and using natural products keep away the issues~

VICD25's SparkPage chris3874-- check your math. clearly the vast majority of SP-ers are female!
I do NOT need some condescending KNOW IT ALL LECTURING ME - HALF THE POPULACE IS MALE
I love how guys don't think they can get dry skin or hair. They make moisturizer and hair products for men too. Take care of yourself inside AND out and it makes you feel better. Women don't just do it to look good, you know.

I don't get it - this was CLEARLY geared to only one HALF of the membership.
This was a really helpful article. I have been having problems with dry skin and I plan to implement some of the suggestions to aide in improving the condition of my skin
I love help from natural ingredients! I am a country lady and I like natural.
I find that year-round, my skin is happier if I use gentle, fragrance-free products made for sensitive skin. I always use a non-comedogenic facial moisturizer with SPF 15. I have oily, acne-prone skin and never thought I should moisturize, but a gentle moisturizer actually calms down the oiliness. Especially in summer, I like to mix a little bit of liquid makeup into my moisturizer, to make my own tinted moisturizer.
My husband has psoriasis and has more, and worse, outbreaks in winter. I think it comes from irritated, dry skin. We switch to moisturizing body wash and a rich, fragrance-free body lotion.
And of course, drink plenty of water year-round for healthy skin and hair!
Worth knowing n reading this article.Wonderful!
Wonderful article and also very helpful!
This was a great article, very helpful. Thanks to the author!
HELP! I am new to Florida's humidity. My face seems to always be wet. Any hints about ways to combat that (it's kind of embarrassing!) would really be appreciated. Thanks!!
"If you’re a blonde (natural or otherwise), be sure to remove any chlorine residue with a clarifying shampoo to prevent that telltale greenish tinge." As a natural blonde and former lifeguard, I know all about having green hair. However, chlorine is NOT the culprit! Copper, used to prevent algae growth, is the real proplem. You have probably seen a statue or roof of copper that has oxidized to green - this is what is happening to your hair.
If you have your own pool (or can influence the pool manager), use SILVER instead of copper as your metal agent. It is equally as effective and you can swim daily, as I do in the AZ desert, without the slightest risk of turning green.
