emily and all -

This is the sunblock I use recommended by my derm. It is 17% zinc oxide. I don't have rosacea but I have redness, etc. from sun damage and this is a very nice cream.

Check it out!

On my skin the lemon peel does not sting. I use it straight with a q-tip and do each small spot that needs lighting. I hold it on the spot for several seconds and it seems to have a great result. I have been using it like this 2-3 times a day, them use my regular creams. Have a good day.

Miss ChiChi,

 

I don't have rosacea, but it's like tinted water to me. I dab it on straight (very generously) all over my forehead with my fingertips. I've never had one hint of an issue and have been using it for two weeks.

Is there any benefit in preventing age spots on the hands with something like lemon peel bioferment?

 

I don't have any, but I also don't want any. It seems like it takes forever for people to get rid of them. I saw a show with a derm that scanned people's skin and could see upcoming age spots that weren't apparent to the eye yet.

 

Just wondered if it would be good to add to my yummy (Susie's) hand cream.

I don't think you need to prevent them, but taking care of our hand is very important. I would go for an anti-age with everything, and liquorice is what I would choose, because it is everything, and if it helps with the age spots, that is nice too.

I can't believe I'm getting them and I'm only 49 years old!!!

 

I don't know anything about them - I've been meaning to do a web search to find out what causes them, but keep forgetting.

 

Just this weekend, I made some handcream with canvas, some "cream gone bad" and KAD, licorice, bearberry. 

 

I didn't even think about the lemonpeel.  I only ordered one tube and used it in my serum.  I'll have to add that when I run out of what I've made.

Hi Kathy,

 

People treat them with hydroquinone, so it must be similar to what's on our faces. You better start working on those or your face won't match your hands!

 

Besides that it works, I love the lemon peel bioferment because it blends with everything. It's so easy to add as an active. No mixing issues --just pour it in!

I did a web search on age spots and found out it can be caused by poor nutrition - that would be me!  But, I have totally turned my eating habits around - too little, too late probably, but better than not doing it at all. 

 

I'll get more lemonpeel on my next order.  I love the water based actives. 

 

Just got back from the health food store and bought some toner that Lili recommended to use to make an all over skin toner with green tea and actives.  OOPS!  Forgot the green tea.  Oh well.  My daughter works at a grocery store, I'll have her get me some tonight.

 

I also bought a spray bottle (a nice looking one - didn't want some old windex bottle!) - just wondering if it will get clogged with undissolved actives???

I use a little spray bottle for my face toner (I shake and spray it on the cotton pad). It doesn't clog and I have two powder actives in it.

   I've been using the MD Forte Aftercare Environmental Protection Cream SPF 30

with some makeup mixed into it for color...But am always on the lookout for other good stuff, so thankyou for adding your suggestions for me to check out.
