This is a list of the ingredients water, aloe barbadensis juice*, sodium lauryl glucoside hydroxypropylsulfonate, cocamidopropyl betaine, decyl glucoside, vegetable glycerin, macrocystis pyrifera (giant kelp) extract, panthenol (vitamin ...

Re: Red meat & Dairy/Neu5Gc molecule

Since I've cut out the sugar I've noticed my reaction to my typical food triggers has diminished significantly. I am now able to eat plain yogurt (no added sugar), drink a little bit of red wine, eat a small square of 85% pure chocolate (less than 1 gram sugar) and have bananas and oranges (not all ...

Re: Effective Sunscreen

I was at CVS pharmacy yesterday and I noticed Neutrogena has a new sunblock Pure and Free for Babies. It is an SPF 60 and has only physical not chemical sunblocks. I put a little bit on and noticed it doesn't leave the white clown cast that most oxide blocks do. It felt very light and not greasy. I ...

Re: Red meat & Dairy/Neu5Gc molecule

Artist, That is an interesting study. I am currently reading a book by Dr. Oz (I would love to have him as my GP) and Dr. Rosen called YOU on a Diet. I'm really interested in diet and nutrition and have read a lot of books but this one is a lot more comprehensive about your body's response to inflam...

Re: Oracea

There are two ways to go - IPL which is Intense Pulsed Light. Lumenis One is supposed to be the best IPL (also known as photoderm or photofacial). There is also a true laser which is V-beam (also know as PDL-Pulsed Dye Laser). V-beam will leave bruises (known as pupura). These look really nasty and ...

I actually found something I like

I have combo oily/dry skin prone to breakouts and redness. Cellex C Hydra B5 is a product I've recently tried and I really like it. Ulta carries it and I think Sephora does too (if you want to be able to take it back. And absolutely take it back if you don't like it because it is ridiculously expens...

Re: Cosmetic Sciences instructor's take on rosacea

Sorry about the long delay. Life got in the way. As much as I like Rebecca, her products didn't help my skin. I got a few sample kits at the show. My skin is extremely reactive and sometimes even more so to "natural" products. It's counterintuitive, I know. One sample I really liked was a ...

Re: Cosmetic Sciences instructor's take on rosacea

I saw her at the San Francisco Face and Body Show at the Moscone Center August 17-18. She gave a presentation on "Cutting-Edge Ingredients 2009". She's a really wonderful speaker and very knowledgeable about skincare. She mentioned that she has rosacea herself. There were some presentation...

SF Bay Area Doctor

I recently visited Dr. Kathleen Welsh in SF. I found her name on the list of recommended doctors for the V-beam Perfecta. I've had IPL in the past (with the Quantum) and also have had Cutera Laser Genesis (big waste of money for me). The V-beam Perfecta is a lot less painful than IPL. I've only had ...
