Dry, Rough Hands

So when I was younger I bleached my skin not really being educated much. I used...

movate carrot cream, topiclear cream and lotion.

But I stopped around 18, I am now 21. The skin on my hands are so dry. And when I say dry I mean no moisture. when I rub them together they sound like sandpaper. Not soft at all; same thing with my feet. Nothing seems to be working. My hands also have some age spots on them but I believe those were there before I used the creams. What can I do. !!?? PLEASE

Hello,

Unfortunately, as you have discovered, bleaching the skin can have some serious side effects. Both the movate carrot cream and the topiclear cream and lotion contain hydroquinone which is a compound that works by decreasing the production and increasing the breakdown of melanin pigment in the skin's pigment cells. Hydroquinone can actually end up damaging your pigment cells and produce the following potential side effects: sensitivity to sunlight, increased risks of getting hyperpigmentation, make you more prone to contact dermatitis and produce thick, leathery, dry and bumpy skin. I would highly recommend washing with nothing but our All Over Face & Body Wash which will keep your skin from drying out any further as most soaps will do. Follow this with an application of our My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream any time you wash or as needed. These products are not only soothing but extremely effective at hydrating the skin on a deep level. Remember, the skin truly responds to health building ingredients.

Please keep posted on your progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Vitiligo

by Gemma George
(Canada)

Within the last 7 months some white patches of de-pigmented areas developed on the back of my hands & a couple of spots on my torso. The dermatologist diagnosed this as Vitiligo and prescribed a steroid cream. I have often heard of the side effects of these types of creams and am skeptical about rubbing my skin with this cream. Currently I take 3 medications together to control hypertension. I am in my early sixties.
Can you recommend a natural product as a possible remedy?

Response to Vitiligo
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Gemma,

Thank you for contacting me with your question. For our website viewers I will explain that vitiligo is a dermatological, non-contagious condition that is characterized by the appearance of white patches of skin on different parts of the body as a result of the destruction of the cells that make pigment (melanocytes). This can vary from one or two white spots on the skin to large areas of depigmentation.

Although experts believe that this condition can be brought on by trauma to an area, stress or burns (especially UV sunburns), it seems to occur more often among people who have certain autoimmune diseases. For some people, although not for everyone, the depigmentation is progressive.

Many people turn to steroids and other topical drugs along with internally administered pharmaceuticals in the hopes of alleviating this condition. However, there are too many side effects that result from this type of treatment such as nausea and vomiting, itching, abnormal hair growth, hyper-pigmentation. skin shrinkage and skin striae - streaks or lines on the skin.

I am a firm believer in a holistic approach to our health care and I strongly recommend the following to you Gemma:

1) Take our INTESTINAL BOWEL CLEANSER (capule or powder form), twice daily, to remove impacted waste matter and toxic build up as well as assist in cleansing the liver and kidneys. This will greatly help your immune system.

2) Take our GREEN POWERHOUSE (capsule or powder form), several time per day, to provide your body with the widest array of vitamins, minerals and enzymes needed by the body to repair and replenish. This formula also contains the highest amount of chlorophyll which further cleanses every cell as well as promotes healthy cell growth and development.

3) Apply our Hand & Body TheraCream to the areas effected with the vitiligo to help the skin to exfoliate 7 layers deep as well as add necessary moisture to your skin cells. Keeping this process in strong working order is very important.

For emphasis, I'll say again that it is very important that you do whatever you can to build your immune system. Without a healthy, strong and vital immune system, we are often plagued by so many different maladies in life.

Please keep me posted as you begin your regimen.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Cracks On My Dry Hands

by Sarah Walden
(Colorado)

I have had cracks on my fingers during the winter months for many years and have tried many different products to help with this issue. The Hand & Body Therapy has soothed and solved the problem with regular usage. The fact that it has no scent or added chemical ingredients is also a major plus.

I really enjoy this product.....Sarah Walden

Hi Sarah,

Thanks so much for your feedback. In fact, many people suffer from dry hands in the winter months and it can certainly present a problem in the functioning of every day life! Our HAND & BODY THERACREAM really works hard and works fast in a very natural way and as we know, the body responds to "natural" ingredients on the skin as well as it does feeding ourselves natural and wholesome foods.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

How Do I Get Your Products?

by Chioma
(Abuja, Nigeria)

I am a 37 year old mother of four. Ever since I was a teenager, I have had allergic reactions without knowing what was wrong with me or having the right diagnosis. It was only in 2002, after my second baby, when I had a terrible drug (sulfur based)reaction that a dermatologist explained my condition to me. I react to practically everything - dust, plant, smoke, cosmetics, detergent, clothing, jewelry, food, name it.
I've lost count of the amount of prednisolone tablets I've taken. I don't leave the house without my inhaler and hydrocortisone cream.
No matter how careful I am, I always seem to react to one thing or another every other week. I'm tired of being asked "what happened to your face or neck or fingers". I have been given all sorts of silly, absurd, funny and outrageous advice on this problem by non professionals. I am scared of the drugs I'm using because I know that they have long term effects, which is why I was so elated when I discovered your site. I know that natural and organic products are the best for the treatment of any kind of ailment but my problem is how to get your product.
I live in Abuja, Nigeria. It is sometimes very difficult to come across products like yours in our local markets. With the testimonies of people who have used your products, I desire to try it too but my problem now is how and where to get it.
I suffer everything from itchy scalp, rhinitis, contact dermatitis, hives to asthma. I'll start looking for your product from today, and I hope to get it before long. Wish me well.

Hello Chioma,

There are many skin conditions that are a result of an internal reaction that the body is vulnerable to. It is very unfortunate that you have had to suffer for so many years being allergic to many things and being subjected to Prednisone and hydrocortisone creams. For our website viewers I will explain that Prednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid drug that acts as an immunosuppressant drug. It has significant adverse effects and because it suppresses the immune system, it leaves patients more susceptible to infections. Hydrocortisone cream can be dangerous to your health as it produces harmful side effects. These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, perioral dermatitis, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of! Know that the body has a great propensity to restore and repair given the proper ingredients. I will give you my external or topical recommendations as well as my internal recommendations.

First, cleanse old cells and environmental debris with our FACE & BODY WASH. To stop inflammation as well as itching and restore the skin use the following: for the facial area, use our FACE & NECK THERACREAM twice daily. For the hands, arms, legs and torso, use our MY DAUGHTER'S HAND & BODY THERACREAM also twice daily. If you have been using steroid creams on your feet, elbows, knees or scalp, use our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM which is specifically designed for the thicker skin on these areas. For your scalp, use our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT in conjunction with the DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM. All of our products are formulated with health building nutrients and humectants that will repair skin cells and fill the 7 layers of skin with the moisture it needs to remain strengthened and balanced.

To restore and build your immune system, take our INTESTINAL BOWEL CLEANSER twice daily, to remove impacted waste matter and toxic build up as well as assist in cleansing the liver and kidneys. This will greatly help by building and strengthening your immune system which has been adversely affected by long term use of Prednisone and steroid creams.

To nurture you entire body, take our GREEN POWERHOUSE several time per day, to provide your body with the widest array of vitamins, minerals and enzymes needed by the body to repair and replenish. This formula also contains the highest amount of chlorophyll which further cleanses every cell as well as promotes healthy cell growth, functionality and development.

We do ship Internationally and if you go to our sister website at: www.aim2health.com you will be able to have your package delivered to Abuja, Nigeria. Please keep me posted on your progress Chioma.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Can Urea Cream Help Cracked, Peeling Nails?

by Jaime/Studio Owner
(Los Angeles)

Question about Urea cream ~

Fingernails are so important to me and in my business clean soft manicured hands and nails are imperative.

Over the last year or so my nails are softer than usual and crack at the ends, then peel and eventually are short and look like they have been eaten ~ I am not a nail biter and always manicure my nails.

I do not think it is a fungus, but whatever is going on has affected all nails on both hands.
My dermatologist has suggested Urea cream on the nails - What do you suggest?

Thank you for your time!

Thank you for confirming Urea Cream and for your in depth explanation about the skin and nails.

Thrilled to hear from you and am excited to pass on your site to friends.

Response To Can Urea Cream Help Cracked, Peeling Nails?
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Jaime,

First, let me start out by explaining that fingernails and toenails are made of a tough protein called keratin. The growing part of the nail is the part still under the skin at the nail's proximal end under the epidermis, which is the only living part of a nail.

Nails grow all the time, but their rate of growth slows down with age and poor circulation and nails can become dry, hard and brittle. Lots of things can cause or exacerbate dry, brittle nails such as exposure to household cleaners, washing hands too often, overly hot or overly cold temperatures in climate, dry air in the home or office and the list can go on. You see, what can dry out or damage the skin on your hands, can also do the same to your nails.

Your dermatologist recommending a urea cream to improve the health of your nails was right on! I give him/her credit for having this type of valuable knowledge! I would highly recommend using our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM applied directly to your nails twice daily. It contains 20% urea and is rich in vitamins, minerals, herbs and other important nutrients that will feed your nails. It's important to know that urea actually increases the water-binding capacity of the skin and nails by opening the 7 skin layers for hydrogen bonding, which then attracts much needed moisture to dry cells. You will be amazed at how quickly your nails will respond to this simple treatment.

On the dietary end, remember that nutrition plays a very important role in our overall health which of course would include nail health, flexibility and strength. A diet based on wholesome fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins can work wonders for the nails as well as the entire body. Be sure to get plenty of wholesome oils as well such as olive oil, flax oil and fish oils.

Please keep me posted on your progress Jaime.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Response to: Dryness Between My Fingers
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Sana,

First I would highly recommend cleaning with our All Over Face & Body Wash as it is just the right pH for the skin and will begin the moisturizing process. It is very important what you wash your hands with as most soaps are way too drying and damaging to the skin. Next I would recommend applying our My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream twice daily and more if you feel that you need it in the beginning. These products work very quickly to alleviate dry and irritated skin.

Please keep me posted on your progress Sana.

Warm Regards,
Nanette
