Gather around little grasshoppers !!!!!!!
Sandy, is right I make my own LA lotion real easy to do with instant results. I started off with 10% LA lotion and I am now using a 15% for the body only. I make only 4oz at a time because I don't want to use any preservatives. I have the formula to figure out how much LA to use.. I'll post if anyone is interested.
Sometimes I use a glycolic lotion from MUA that is good, it makes me flake (exfoliate) alot. I think GA is a bit stronger than the LA. My homemade LA lotion is better and prolly will not reorder.
So, I alternate between my LA lotion and Niacinmaide lotion. In my mix, is green tea extract, olive leaf extract, vitamin e and Niacinmaide (I mix these items together then add to a lotion base)..My base lotion is MSM cream.
Actually, Ross has alot of good lotion that have alot of natural ingredients just got to take out the time and read the labels. Just make sure the lotion does not have any carbomers.
Dead Sea Mineral Soap is good too.... Don't sleep on this !!!!!!! I lather up and let is dry, helps remove any dead skin and makes the skin soft. Found it at Ross !!!!
From what I read , Collagen can't be absorded externally through the skin. So, pass up all those collagen creams because they are a waste of dinero... if I am wrong please let me know. That is why I take the collagen drink +vitamin c+ hyaluronic acid in the am on an empty stomach.
Hyaluronic acid provides the skin with moisture, the more mositure the less wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid holds water to keep collagen hydrated. The skin contains over 50% of the bodies Hyaluronic Acid. Considering that skin is over 70% water and renews
itself more readily than most other bodily tissues.
Don't sleep on Hyaluronic acid, you can get a cheap bottle of Walmart. It makes my lips plump...lol.. and it really boost the effects of collagen powder.
