Psoriasis And Thin Veiny Skin On Face

by Scott
(Nottingham , UK)

I have two long standing issues that I was hoping you could help me with. The first is the moderate coverage of psoriasis I have on my body that I have suffered with for nearly a decade now. I have scalp psoriasis, as well as several plaques on my legs and back and some mild inflammation on my lips. Over the last few months with the use of a UVB lamp on just the affected areas combined with an increased intake in selected vitamins I have managed to reduce the thickness of the plaques but the redness never disappears. I was wondering what you could recommend to take the inflammation out of the skin.

My second query is in respect of the side effects from having quite thin skin on my face. Since childhood I have had severe dark circles under both eyes. The skin in this area is very discolored, purple almost pink in color. Couple with this, my cheeks seem to become flushed very easily, perhaps a case of mild rosacea. Basically I wondered what you could suggest that could stimulate a slight thickening of the skin in the area without triggering an outbreak of psoriasis. I am wary of products that stimulate skin cell production as psoriasis is obviously a condition that is centered around accelerated skin cell growth.

Apologies for the avalanche of text! I hope to hear from you soon.

Hello Scott,

Your questions are welcomed so no need to apologize. Suffering with psoriasis for nearly a decade is certainly a trying experience. Your question as to whether the red, inflamed skin associated with psoriasis plaque build up can dissipate is a very good one. The answer is "yes" - with the proper ingredients. Many of our product users have seen tremendous results! Regarding your question as to whether it is possible to help the facial skin thicken, I will say this; it is very possible to assist the skin in producing healthier and more balanced skin especially if part of this thinness you are experiencing is due to steroid cream use. Further, the skin on the face is some of the thinnest on the body and under the eyes the skin is as much as 50% thinner than the facial skin, therefore it requires great care and gentleness.

Here are my strong recommendations:

Begin by using our FACE & BODY MOISTURIZING WASH which provides a gentle but thorough cleansing for the facial skin as well as body but does not strip the skin of it's natural PH. It will begin the repair process deep down that your skin needs. Next for all over body use, apply our HAND & BODY THERACREAM on the areas of plaque, redness and inflammation twice daily. For the delicate face apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM over the entire facial skin. Both of these creams have the amazing capability to penetrate the 7 layers of skin and unpack damaged cells and supply moisture and nutrients to repair and rebuild healthy, balanced skin. You will notice rosacea symptoms dissipate as well.

Remember that the body truly responds to natural remedies and consistency is important.

Please keep me posted on your progress Scott

Seborrheic Dermatitis On My Face And Chest


(USA)


I thought you would want to know:

I have had sebhorriec dermatitis on my face and chest for about 8 years now. It was irritating and embarrassing to say the least. I have been using harsh, expensive medicated lotions on a daily basis since I can remember. I was recently out of town and ran out of said medicated lotion. I couldn't book a dermatologist appointment for weeks, so I decided to look online for a natural solution. I have to be honest - I had little hope for positive results. After using your All Over Face & Body Wash and Face & Neck TheraCream products for one week, my symptoms had gotten remarkably better. And now, after two weeks, they are completely gone! This is just a thanks for relieving my dependency of a prescription-only, chemical product and replacing it with a natural alternative that does a better job.

Thanks!

Your Urea Cream Made The Difference.......Not The Drugstore Version!

by Anonymous By Request

Hello Nanette,

I would like to tell you that your Double TheraCream is working wonders and what a difference it has made in my life so far. For almost 13 years, I had developed sort of a psychological problem to where I didn't let an imperfection heal and created a large area on my scalp that I have searched for years for to heal and it never did. I tried first cortisone creams, then herbal remedies, vinegar to stop the flaking and itching, saw doctors that told me I had psoriasis on my head, offered several drugs, that I didn't fill the scripts for due to the warnings on the label. I even treated it as psoriasis as a condition, ordered miracle cures on the internet, that didn't cure it. And if I had to count the money I have spent.......oh hundreds of dollars.

It has stolen my self esteem, I haven't worn black in literally almost a decade, and it has made me constantly having to "look after" it for all this time to where it became part of me. (Of course due to the psychological part of the ordeal.) A little over one quarter of my life has been spent searching and never losing hope that something is bound to make it leave.

First, I learned about Urea on the internet, about a month ago, and went to my nearest drugstore to pick up a tube. That just made it kinda heal but kept it inflamed. Even though I saw YOUR ad first on the net, I still went and bought the drugstore version, because it was suppose to help it. But the cream that I ordered from you is the most wonderful stuff ever made on the planet.

I sure wanted to take the time to thank you SO VERY much that really these words can't express how much. If you were in the same room with me I'd hug you!!

May you always continue in your quest to helping people, with unidentifiable skin conditions, and to bless others with your gift of knowledge. And if there is anyway I can help please let me know.

Warm regards to you, and thanking you from the bottom of my heart and soul!!

White Heads And Lightened Skin

by Aarti
(Dehli, India)

My daughter had darkened skin after a trek and I feel that the doctor gave her a steroid cream mix which lightened her skin but produced minute white heads after she got her laser for hair removal. I am really worried. Please help.

Response To White Heads And Lightened Skin
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Aarti,

First, the discontinuing of anything harmful, such as steroid creams and such is very important for the healing process to begin. Steroids can produce side effects which include: thinning of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system in addition to the white heads you mentioned. It is important to use only natural ingredients to restore and maintain your daughter's skin to a healthy state.

I recommend using our FACE & BODY MOISTURIZING WASH which provides a gentle but thorough cleansing but does not strip the skin of it's natural PH. It will begin the repair process deep down that your daughter's skin needs. Next, gently apply a light coat of our FACE & NECK THERACREAM - for the facial area or our HAND & BODY THERACREAM - for body areas. These rich creams penetrate all 7 layers of skin to unpack dry, damaged cells and excess sebum and restore skin cells from the bottom up to the very skin surface. The natural ingredients will quickly repair the white heads as well as reduce inflammation and stop any itching - restoring the normal function of the skin. All of our products are formulated with skin nurturing ingredients that repair, restore and replenish natural moisture levels and bring balance in the skin. Just as the body responds to healthy, natural foods, the skin will also respond to health building, natural ingredients.

Please keep me posted on your daughter's progress Aarti.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Lichen Planus

by by Sandra Baker
((Lakeside, AZ USA))

I was diagnosed with Lichen Planus almost 2 years ago. I have been on all kinds of creams and finally given Soriatane for seven months. It and going off blood thinners almost cleared up all the sores but I have a continual stinging and burning of the skin. Do you have any suggestions?

Response To: Lichen Planus
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Sandra,
I'm not sure if your prescribing doctor has told you just how dangerous Soriatane is and that using it for 7 months is an unbelievably long time for a drug that harsh. For our website viewers, I must explain that Soriatane is a retinoid drug and must NOT be used by females who are pregnant, or who intend to become pregnant during therapy or at any time for at least 3 years following discontinuation of therapy. During clinical trials with Soriatane, 98% of subjects reported 3545 adverse effects involving the mucous membranes, skin and nervous system.
Other side effects include: stroke, dry mouth, lips, dry irritated eyes, hair loss, runny nose, thinning, peeling, or scaling of skin, weak nails, rash, hives, itching, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue, back or joint pain or stiffness, blurred vision, bone pain, calf or leg pain, chest pain, eye pain, loss of appetite, mood changes, muscle pain, stiffness, or weakness, numbness, or tingling of the hands or feet, blistered, burning or stinging skin, severe dizziness, severe or persistent headache, persistent stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, high blood sugar, slurred speech, vaginal itching, odor, discharge, and yellowing of the skin or eyes.

Here are my full recommendations to help your entire body recover not only from the Lichen Planus but from the extended usage of Soriatane.
Externally, use our FACE & BODY WASH that will deeply cleanse and begin repairing your skin. Next, apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM to the facial area and MY DAUGHTER'S HAND & BODY THERACREAM for the rest of your body twice daily. These hypo-allergenic creams penetrate all 7 layers of skin to remove damaged cells, relieve inflammation and itching and restore much needed moisture from the bottom up to the very skin surface helping to restore balance. If you have Lichen Planus on the scalp, rub in our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM into the parts of the scalp affected. This cream penetrates the thicker skin of the scalp deeper and faster to unpack and unclog the skin layers. Next, wash your hair and scalp with our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT which will further unpack dry damaged cells to the deepest part of the scalp and restore much needed moisture to the scalp and hair shafts and regain a healthy balance once again. Internally, I recommend you take our INTESTINAL BOWEL CLEANSER to remove impacted waste matter and toxic build up (including residual drug accumulation) as well as assist in cleansing the liver and kidneys. This will greatly build and strengthen your immune system. Next, take our GREEN POWERHOUSE to provide your body with the widest array of vitamins, minerals and enzymes needed by the body to repair and replenish. High amounts of chlorophyll further cleanses every cell as well as promotes healthy cell growth, functionality and development. Please keep me posted on your progress Sandra.
Warm Regards, Nanette

Severe Cortisone Skin Burn

Is there any way to repair severe damage caused by over use of coritsone? The skin has thinned out drastically and the WHOLE calf area looks like a bruise. I used the cream prescribed by a doctor for varicose veins and now it's done more damage than good. Can it be repaired?

Response To Severe Cortisone Skin Burn
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello,

Over use of cortisone cream is quite prevalent and many doctors continue to prescribe stronger and stronger steroid creams to their patients and many times over the course of a number of years. I had one client who had been to her dermatologist for over 25 years for the same skin problem and was NO BETTER!!

You must know that cortisone and hydrocortisone are in the corticosteroids class of drugs, often used as an anti inflammatory to reduce inflammation and suppression of immune system action. Because of these steroids' adverse side effects, you usually are only permitted to use them for a short time. Side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. It is wise to avoid them as much as possible.

Take heart though, for the skin does have the capability to be repaired and restored given the right ingredients and as long as you refrain from applying any more steroid cream to the area. Here is my strong recommendation to help your skin recover.

Wash only with a hypo-allergenic and gentle wash which contains absolutely no chemicals or ingredients that can be toxic to the skin. Our FACE & BODY WASH will provide this type of purity and will help bring your skin in balance. Then apply our MY DAUGHTER'S HAND & BODY THERACREAM which is a deep penetrating cream which will penetrate the 7 layers of skin and will promote optimal functioning of the skin processes. It will reduce inflammation and add much needed moisture as well as the vital health building ingredients necessary for repairing the skin. Consistency and patience will be needed to help your skin steadily gain back its thickness and strength.

Please keep me posted on your progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Dry Face

by Christine
(Irvine, CA)

Dear Nanette,

The last few weeks my face has felt warm and looks red and rough and I know it is not hot flashes. I'm on synthroid medication; I have been constipated the last few weeks also and I also have itchy bumps on my neck and face occasionally. I had an allergy test years ago and the only thing I was allergic to was copper.
I have a healthy diet and I do drink two to three glasses of wine at least 5 to 6 days a week. I was also using 20% glycolic pads on my face for the last year which I have stopped using as they seemed to help my complexion but now seems too strong to use. What do you think may be causing this problem?

Response To Dry Face
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Christine,

First let me say for our website viewers that Synthroid is a replacement drug for a hormone that is normally produced by your thyroid gland to regulate the body's energy and metabolism. Synthroid is given when the thyroid does not produce enough of this hormone on its own. You mentioned being constipated - medications can either cause or exacerbate this problem. As far as what is exactly causing your skin problems, I would need to acquire much more information from you and certainly, blood work would tell a lot as well. Based on the information you have provided me, I will give you my recommendations that will restore your facial and neck skin as well as provide great healthful benefits to your entire bodily systems.

1) Wash only with a hypo-allergenic and gentle body wash which contains absolutely no chemicals or ingredients that can be toxic to the skin. Our FACE & BODY WASH will provide this type of purity and will help bring your skin in balance. Then apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM which is a deep penetrating cream which will penetrate the 7 layers of skin and promote optimal functioning of the skin processes helping to restore your skin while stopping any itching and providing an anti bacterial protection as well.

2) 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.

3) 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.

This is my complete recommendation at this point but please start on the products you feel most comfortable with and you can certainly proceed from there. I know this program will help restore your health and please feel free to contact me with any further questions you may have.

As a final note, diet is very important to the health and wellness of the entire body and of course, skin. Although wine has a number of beneficial qualities to the body, the recommended amount for women is one 5 oz. glass of wine per day. Also, drinking alcohol while on prescription drugs presents the possibility of negative drug interaction. Considering these factors, I highly recommend your adjusting your wine intake. You can do a search on the internet for more detailed studies on this topic.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions you may have and I look forward to hearing about your progress.


Warm Regards,
Nanette

Palmoplantar Keratodermia

by Nancy
(USA)

Hi,

I was diagnosed with Palmoplantar Keratodermia - a rare, genetic disorder of the skin that my father also had. The skin on my palms, knuckles, ankles and soles of my feet get very thick and crack and bleed to the point of severe pain.

I've tried so many prescription and non prescription products over the years which never did help much. My pharmacist actually told me about Urea and it's benefits so I did an internet search for products containing a higher percentage of Urea and found you!

I wish I would have taken before pictures of my feet then as they were so bad and had deep cracks that bled all the time and never healed.

Within a couple weeks of using your double strength cream, they actually were healing up! Something that had not happened in over 20 years!

I ran out of the cream a week or so ago and the cracks started to reappear so I did take photos this time. As soon as I get my order, I will take after photos and email them to you!

Though this skin condition is not common, there are a few of us out there who are pretty desperate to find something to work. I've done much research on this skin disorder and there really is nothing out there as far as information for treatments.

I wonder about your oral supplements and what you can tell me about what you can recommend for helping with this internally?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, wondering if you plan on making larger sizes of the Double Strength Theracream and Hand & Body TheraCream? I was thinking bigger sizes would be great!

Thank you SO much for your products. They have been a God send!!!! Nancy

Palmoplantar Keratodermia
by: Nancy

Hi,

Thanks so much for taking the time to respond with the information! I've been to doctors for years who never knew what this condition was and only recently found a dermatologist who knew what Palmoplantar Keratodermia was only because she studied at a university where they studied rare skin conditions. Right after she told me what this was, my next question to her was, "Great! How do we fix this?"....She told me it was incurable and there was no known treatment!

I've used holistic treatments for many other things and have experienced amazing results, so I was beyond excitement to find your website and products! My feet have been the biggest problem because of the deep cracks that never heal. The pain is so great at times, I cannot walk. The results from your Double Strength TheraCream was so dramatic, I almost couldn't believe it!

The before pictures I'm sending really don't show the severity of the problem because these photos show my skin after running out of your products for just a couple of weeks! I really wish I had taken pictures before I started using the cream the first time, but honestly didn't expect such amazing results because of trying so many other things over the years that didn't work, I didn't have high hopes!

Thanks for caring so much about folks like me. You are a blessing!!!
Nancy

Could you advise of a product that is suited to treating the redness that is apparent on psoriasis of the body, and I have small tiny dots of psoriasis on my hands and feet.

Response To: Psoriasis On Body, Hands And Feet
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Helen,

Psoriasis anywhere on the body can prove to be resistant as the scales are some the thickest of the more common skin conditions. Add on top of that, the reddened markings that occur around the psoriasis patch or that this condition may leave on your body. My strong recommendation is to begin by using our FACE & BODY WASH to cleanse with. This is a hypo-allergenic wash with anti-bacterial properties that will begin unpacking the thick patches as well as add much needed moisture to your skin which is so necessary in the repair process. Please note that so many commercial soaps on the market today actually strip away the natural PH of the skin and deplete it of its natural moisture levels. This only exacerbates the problem and in some skin cases, causes it!

Next, apply our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM to the affected and reddened areas twice daily (morning and evening being the best times). This double the formula cream quickly penetrates the thicker scales that form with psoriasis as well as the 7 layers of skin and begins to unpack the dry, damaged cells lifting them to the surface while filling the cells below with much needed moisture to return the skin to a healthy state.

Please keep me posted on your progress Helen. Also, please note that we refer all of our International customers to our sister website at: www.aim2health.com where you can order all of the same products as are available on this website.

Response to My Vitiligo Is Dry And Irritated
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Kelly,

Thank you for contacting me with your concern. Symptoms of dryness on top of pre-existing conditions such as your vitiligo can be not only uncomfortable but a challenge to treat if the proper care is not taken. I would first ask that if you are using any steroids that you discontinue them as they will only irritate your skin and cause deeper problems. Natural is the best and only way to treat skin conditions and your body will respond given the right ingredients to work with.

Here is my recommendation for you to follow that will help to restore your skin and bring about a healthy and balanced state:

1) Wash only with a hypo-allergenic and gentle body wash which contains absolutely no chemicals or ingredients that can be toxic to the skin. Our FACE & BODY WASH will provide this type of purity as well as moisturizing ability to help bring your skin in balance.

2) Then apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM for your facial area and our HAND & BODY THERACREAM for whole body use. These two highly enriched creams are deep penetrating and able to penetrate the 7 layers of skin and promote optimal functioning of the skin processes and reduce inflammation helping to restore your normal skin tones.

In addition to the high levels of natural, health building ingredients in these products, they further contain a very important ingredient called urea. Urea causes dry skin cells to "unpack" and expose their water binding sites, thereby enabling the cell to absorb and retain additional moisture while at the same time preventing water loss in the skin layers. If the skin is very dry and scaly, a large amount of the cream is taken up by the horny layer in order to restore needed moisture and bring back the skin's balance in disposing of dead cells and replacing them with new and healthy for wonderfully vibrant skin.

Please keep me posted on your progress Kelly and be sure to contact me with any further questions you may have.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Response To: What Should I Use For My Psoriasis?
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Renee,

Psoriasis conditions do need help! I will recommend two products for your psoriasis located on your legs, arms, back and stomach and a separate product for your scalp. Begin by using our FACE & BODY MOISTURIZING WASH to cleanse with. This is a hypo-allergenic wash with anti-bacterial properties that will begin unpacking the thick patches of psoriasis. Further, it will add much needed moisture to your skin which is so necessary in the repair process. So many commercial soaps on the market today actually strip away the natural PH of the skin and deplete it of its natural moisture levels. This only exacerbates the problem!

Next, apply either our MY DAUGHTER'S HAND & BODY THERACREAM or if your psoriasis is severe, our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM to the affected areas twice daily (morning and evening being the best times). These creams quickly penetrate the thick patches as well as the 7 layers of skin and begins to unpack the dry, damaged cells lifting them to the surface while filling the cells below with much needed moisture

For your scalp, use our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT as this provides a powerful remedy for your scalp condition. This all natural shampoo works by starting from the bottom of the scalp tissue on up - 7 layers deep thus repairing the scalp thoroughly and restoring it with health and balance again.

Please keep me posted on your progress Renee.

Children's Itchy Burning Feet

by Helen B.
(UK)

My daughter often complains of itchy, burning feet, and on inspection they are often red, dry and with deep ridges in the skin mainly on the balls of her feet. She is worse when she has been swimming, and we have now got some latex socks for her to wear in the pool, but she still gets the problem especially if her feet get hot. At its worst her feet have become infected and had to be treated with a prescription cream.
Can you please recommend a good natural cream with anti bacterial, anti fungal properties which we can use daily.

Response To Children's Itchy Burning Feet
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Helen,

When the skin on the feet becomes dry, it in turn begins to itch and burn as the 7 layers of skin are pulled in by the dry cells that often form deep ridges or gaping cracks. Further, the skin on the feet is quite thick and can be difficult to work with. Speaking as a mother, when our children hurt, we hurt too! This is why I have formulated a product called DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM which is specially prepared for the thicker skin on the feet, scalp, elbows and ears as well as resistant skin in general. This highly moisturizing and natural formula penetrates all 7 layers, stops the itching and provides anti inflammatory, anti bacterial, anti microbial and anti fungal properties as it adds a protective layer to the feet. Many children such as your daughter also experience this itchy dryness as well as adults who are on their feet all day or sweat more than usual while wearing socks and closed shoes. Apply the DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM on your daughter's feet once in the morning and again before bed and thereafter only on a need basis once the problem is resolved. You can purchase this and any of our products on our sister website at www.aim2health.com which has all of the same products this website has but also serves our International customers.

Please keep me posted on your daughter's progress Helen.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

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

Hello James,

Shea butter can be great to help areas of hyper-pigmentation coupled with urea as well as highly nourishing vitamins and herbs it can do a lot to bring a natural balance and restoration to normalize skin tones. Personally, I have not found products in the general market that live up to these amazing ingredients and what they can do working synergistically to repair the skin.

What I would recommend is the following: Wash only with a hypo-allergenic and gentle body wash which contains absolutely no chemicals or ingredients that can be toxic to the skin. Our FACE & BODY WASH will provide this type of purity and will help bring your skin in balance. Then apply any one of our shea butter and urea based creams which will penetrate the 7 layers of skin and promote optimal functioning of the skin processes helping to restore your normal skin tones.

Please keep in touch James and let me know how you are progressing.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Response To: STEROID THINNED SKIN
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Lisa,

It really is quite serious when steroid use thins the skin. Every part of the body was designed to have its own specific skin thickness and when steroid creams destroy this balance, a variety of problems can result.

Fortunately, the body seeks to regenerate and given the proper ingredients, the skin has the capability to thicken and restore once again. You did not mention where you have used the steroid creams so I will give you the following recommendations to help restore your skin to a healthy state.

First, cleanse old cells and environmental debris with our FACE & BODY WASH. To soothe 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. 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 supple and strengthened. And of course, taking in nutritious foods is always a big plus!

Please let me know if you have any other questions Lisa as I am here to help! Also, please note that we refer all of our International customers to our sister website at: www.aim2health.com where you can order all of the same products as are available on this website.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Response To Split Toes
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello,

Summer time activities are great fun but can bring about many physical woes. For your ten year old son's toes I would highly recommend placing a light layer of our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM on his toenails just before going swimming and then again after swimming. This amazing cream will provide a strong layer of protection and moisture from being in the water for long periods of time which of course, can dry out the nails. After he is done swimming, another light coat will then add even more moisture deep down into the nail and nail bed for strong, healthy toenails.

Please keep me on your son's progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Seborrheic Dermatitis On My Cheeks And Nose

by Sarah
(United Kingdom)

Hi Nanette,

I have seborrheic dermatitis of the face where it's really red on my cheeks and nose ect. Have you got any good treatments I could try as I don't want to use steriods - they make my skin worse. I just hate this.

If you have any recommendations could you tell me the products that are not too greasy as it makes me get a lot of blackheads. The main worry of mine is the redness of my face so if you could get back to me it would be great. I have tried so much and no treatment work and it's so depressing!! Thanks! :( Sarah

Response to Seborrheic Dermatitis On My Cheeks And Nose
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Sarah,

Don't despair! Seborrheic Dermatitis can be treated and you are on the right track by first, not using steroids. Steroids will actually worsen your condition as well as ultimately weakening your immune system which only compounds the problem.

The treatment I will recommend for you is all natural and deep penetrating. Our creams are definitely NOT GREASEY but rather fill your skin with much needed moisture which is what your skin truly needs - not oil. In fact, many of the products on the market are loaded with mineral oil which is absolutely horrible for the skin. Mineral Oil is the by-product of making gasoline from petroleum and since we use so much gasoline, it makes mineral oil very cheap for companies, therefore it makes the perfect (yet toxic!)filler. Further, the molecules are much too large to even penetrate the pores of the skin, so it sits on top of the skin with a greasy feeling and can actually make your problem even worse.

First, wash with our FACE & BODY WASH which will gently cleanse your skin and begin repairing the skin layers without further drying your skin as so many soaps and cleansers do. Then apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM morning and night. A thin layer is all you need as it quickly penetrates the 7 layers of skin and begins to unpack dry, damaged cells, lifting them to the surface and replacing moisture and nutrients to help restore your skin and reducing inflammation. The skin will respond quite readily to natural and wholesome ingredients such as you put on your skin in the way that it responds to natural and wholesome foods you eat and drink....so get ready to start seeing your face, cheeks and nose return to a normal, balanced healthy state.

Please keep me posted on your progress Sarah and contact me with any further questions you may have.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Dull Skin

by Susan Myers
(Warrior, Al)

I'm new to your site, but looking for a lotion or cream with at least 10% urea. I'm 60 years old and long for that "glow" or silky smooth look. Is the higher percentage urea in a lotion or cream the better for your skin?

Thank you. Very interested in your products.

Hello Susan,

You are not alone in your quest for silky, smooth skin. So whether 60 years young or any age for that matter, proper skin care must be implemented.

Let me begin by saying that just as it is highly important to put nutritious foods into our bodies, it is equally important to put nutritious ingredients atop our skin. In addition to the vitamins, minerals and herbs we place in our creams, we also use urea in either 5%, 10% or 20% proportions.

Urea is a compound naturally found in the human body and exists in every HEALTHY cell. The body uses the urea formulated into our products in the same way as the urea naturally found in the skin. Scientists call it a true "humectant" because it is an important component of the body's Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). Unmatched for its hydrating properties, urea can increase water content to the skin to a level of 97.8%! This is far more than any other natural substance. Found in the surface layer of the skin (epidermis), urea plays a vital role in maintaining the skin's moisture balance and the suppleness of the skin.

For the face area Susan, I would highly recommend our FACE & NECK THERACREAM which has 10% urea which is all this delicate skin area needs. For your body areas, I recommend our HAND & BODY THERACREAM which also has a 10% urea content and is superb for allover body use. Now, for the thicker skin of the scalp, knees, elbows, feet and ears, I recommend our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM which has 20% urea content. Studies show that anything higher than 20% is just not needed by the body and can actually end up irritating the skin.

Please let me know if there are any other questions I can answer for you Susan and enjoy using our fast acting products and the silky, healthy skin they will produce.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Response To: I Am A 10 Year Old Girl Suffering With Psoriasis On My Right Foot.
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Lakshmi,

I am only too happy to answer your question and help you. To begin with, this skin psoriasis affects your skin by causing thick red, silvery scales and flaky skin patches to form causing sensitive skin. Sometimes pus-filled blisters form. The reason your skin becomes thick and red is that the skin cells are growing faster than normal. Because of their rapid growth, there isn't enough time for the cells to shed (fall off). As a result, the cells pile up on top of each other, making thick, scaly patches on your skin. I highly recommend using the following two products to help the skin on your foot recover from this psoriasis condition. Begin by using our FACE & BODY MOISTURIZING WASH to cleanse with. This is a hypo-allergenic wash with anti-bacterial properties that will begin unpacking the thick patches of psoriasis. Further, it will add much needed moisture to your skin which is so necessary in the repair process. The fact is so many commercial soaps on the market today actually strip away the natural PH of the skin and deplete it of its natural moisture levels. This only exacerbates the problem and in some skin cases, causes it!

Next, apply our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM to the affected areas twice daily (morning and evening being the best times). This "double the formula" cream quickly penetrates the thick patches as well as the 7 layers of skin and begins to unpack the dry, damaged cells lifting them to the surface while filling the cells below with much needed moisture in addition to stopping any itching. In as little as 3 to 5 days you should begin to see a dramatic response to your psoriasis condition.

Please have your parents look at our website and this information and then follow these steps and please keep me posted on your progress Lakshmi.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Your Urea Cream Is The Most Wonderful Stuff!

by I Wish To Remain Anonymous

Hello Nanette,

I would like to tell you that your Double TheraCream is working wonders and what a difference it has made in my life so far. For almost 13 years, I had developed sort of a psychological problem to where I didn't let an imperfection heal and created a large area on my scalp that I have searched for years for to heal and it never did. I tried first cortisone creams, then herbal remedies, vinegar to stop the flaking and itching, saw doctors that told me I had psoriasis on my head, offered several drugs, that I didn't fill the scripts for due to the warnings on the label. I even treated it as psoriasis as a condition, ordered miracle cures on the internet, that didn't cure it. And if I had to count the money I have spent.......oh hundreds of dollars.

It has stolen my self esteem, I haven't worn black in literally almost a decade, and it has made me constantly having to "look after" it for all this time to where it became part of me. (Of course due to the psychological part of the ordeal.) A little over one quarter of my life has been spent searching and never losing hope that something is bound to make it leave.

First, I learned about Urea on the internet, about a month ago, and went to my nearest drugstore to pick up a tube. That just made it kinda heal but kept it inflamed. Even though I saw YOUR ad first on the net, I still went and bought the drugstore version, because it was suppose to help it. But the cream that I ordered from you is the most wonderful stuff ever made on the planet.

I sure wanted to take the time to thank you SO VERY much that really these words can't express how much. If you were in the same room with me I'd hug you!!

May you always continue in your quest to helping people, with unidentifiable skin conditions, and to bless others with your gift of knowledge. And if there is anyway I can help please let me know.

Warm regards to you, and thanking you from the bottom of my heart and soul, (wishes to remain anonymous)

Same Exact Experience
by: Beth

OMG, you're describing the very same symptoms that brought me here as I was searching desperately to find something about my own condition. We too recently started using Arm & Hammer detergent and first I started out with a raised red, bubbly rash from my wrist to my inner elbow. Simultaneously, I also broke out in smaller individual bumps here & there throughout my body. Once the large rash went away, the others have flared up more and, honestly, I'm itching in some VERY uncomfortable places right now. Yes, there! Not to mention even my SCALP has little bumps that literally burned when I turned on the shower. Also my waistline (where, interstingly, my clothing is in close contact with my skin) is also red & inflamed. Even my eyes itch, too. I have never had this sort of reaction to detergent before and I've used my share of them, but I will definitely not be using Arm & Hammer again!

Response To Entire Family Has Itchy Skin And Scalp Since Use Of New Fabric Softerner And Arm And Hammer Detergent
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Natalie,
Fabric softener and dryer sheets are some of the most toxic products around containing chemicals that could cause cancer and brain damage.
Here are just some of the chemicals found in fabric softeners and dryer sheets:
*Benzyl acetate: Linked to pancreatic cancer
*Benzyl Alcohol: Upper respiratory tract irritant
*Ethanol: Can cause central nervous system disorders *Limonene: Known carcinogen *A-Terpineol: Can cause respiratory problems, fatal edema, and central nervous system damage
*Ethyl Acetate: A narcotic *Camphor: Causes central nervous system disorders *Chloroform: Neurotoxic, anesthetic and carcinogenic *Linalool: A narcotic that causes central nervous system disorders
*Pentane: A chemical known to be harmful if inhaled

Furthermore, fabric softeners are made to stay in your clothing for long periods of time releasing chemicals slowly either into the air for you to inhale or onto your skin for you to absorb. Dryer sheets are particularly noxious because they are heated in the dryer and the chemicals are released through dryer vents and out into the environment. Health risks include:
*Central nervous system disorders *Headaches
*Nausea *Itchy Skin Often Accompanied by a rash
*Dizziness *Blood pressure reduction *Irritation to skin, mucus membranes and respiratory tract *Pancreatic cancer

Regarding the Arm & Hammer Detergent you are using, it is important to require manufacturers to tell the public what chemicals are in their products. Consumers should have the information required under an important right-to-know law: a full list of ingredients and disclosure of their impacts to health. Church & Dwight, maker of Arm & Hammer products, refuses to follow a law requiring them to disclose the chemical ingredients in their products and the health risks they pose.

I highly recommend you stop using both the new fabric softener as well as the Arm & Hammer Detergent as soon as possible. Natural alternatives do exist to provide your family with "safer" laundry products!

Here is what I strongly advise:
For itchy skin: Wash with our hypo-allergenic, chemical free cleanser, FACE & BODY WASH, which will quickly add much needed moisture to your skin and begin the restorative process. Next, apply our HAND & BODY THERACREAM which will penetrate the skin 7 layers deep and add abundant moisture as well as stop the itching and contains plenty of vitamins and nutrients to repair, fortify and protect your skin.

For the scalp: If your family's scalp condition is mild to moderate, use our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT to stop the scalp from itching, restore the proper PH and bring health and balance back to the scalp. If the condition is severe, also use our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM to be applied onto the scalp area that is affected. Do this at nighttime and in the morning wash the hair and scalp with our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT.
Please keep me posted on you and your family's progress Natalie.
Warm Regards, Nanette

Urea for face

Response to: Urea for face
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Alan,

While the facial skin is the thinnest skin on the body which certainly makes it more vulnerable and sensitive, 10% urea is the perfect ingredient (amidst a myriad of other health building ingredients) to help bring necessary moisture to the skin layers. We do not recommend any highter than 10% for the face as that would just be unnecessary. Our urea is highly beneficial to the many skin conditions as it is a superior humectant. But remember, not all urea creams are made equal, as many companies will load their urea cream with mineral oil, petroleum and other non beneficial fillers, additives and harsh ingredients.

Warm Regards,
Nanette
