I did not elaborate....I have been using 'Serious Skin Care' Vit-C line for a few years. I have been using their facial Moisturizer with SPF 30 while at home. It cause irritation if used within 1-inch of my eyes. Lately I purchased Neutrogena Helioplex SPF 70, but returned it because it left a whitish hue, plus it did not have Zinc Oxide. Instead I got the CVS brand SPF 30, but it has Zinc Oxide. It left no white hue, and is causing no eye irritation .

Layering products on my face is time consuming, but necessary for now, given time, I WILL find a way to minimize those steps . However, doing it on my skin is not acceptable . incorporating Zinc Ozxide into my body lotion should solve that problem..

I am seeing progress over all, even though I see myself multiple times per day , I want to jump ahead..... I must keep reminding myself

So here is Saturday night..
Showered with my Dove liquid, Soaped with Kojic Soap. it absorbed within 5 mins, waited few minutes,then applied Amlactin all over including my face. The back of my neck still burned/sting (still unsure of how to describe that sensation]. It was not unbearable so I left it on for 40 mins . Washed face and back of neck, usual night time facial routine, apply Oil to back of neck. I am not too worried about my neck, it should be okay by morning.
Speaking of the morning...I guess I will be doing the "Bath" thing tomorrow morning.   I am a little better prepared, I now have a bath pillow, a stop clock (no more than 30 mins) , plus I still have not completed last weeks' movie "White House Down". Every body is asking 'how could I have not fininhed watching that movie'?. I guess it's becauuse it was associated with the bath.
.    I feel like such a DORK .
Maybe next week I will have a little 'Rubber Duckie' .

Tomorrow is of course.. Another Day

Thank You sunshine
I was just journaling and decided to do it this way instead of writing it in a notebook, truthfully, sometimes I cannot read my handwriting . I spend a lot of time reading other sites and copy what I think is useful info for myself and others.

I appreciate your comments, especially hearing that someone is finding it helpful.
Thank you


ps Good Luck on your 'Skin Care Journey'. Care to share some of your experiences

I had a not so restful sleep dreaming of my salt bath today . I woke up remembering I had frequent salt baths as a child, not in the confines of a tub, but in the waters of the blue Caribbean Sea .
Putting 2-cups of Epsom Salt in the tub of water, and having the water at a perfect temp did the trick. I happened to taste the water, but it did not taste salty. Not sure how it was supposed to taste, I hope I will not have to break down and buy a bar of Sea salt Soap . I did almost 30 minutes
Giving my body a break today, just massaged in a Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Oil mix I had for winter hair, onto my skin.
My face does not get a break...The usual nighttime routine.

My blemishes are more obvious probably because my skin is getting lighter, and the blemishes have not yet caught up . Elbows are smoother and lighter . My hands and feet are keeping up.

This stuff does not play well with nail polish. Fortunately I only use clear polish.

While the Salt Baths are becoming more tolerable, I have yet to see a visible benefit. But it is part of the process, so I will comply

Biological Sulfur and Your Health

MSM was isolated by Robert Herschler and Dr. Stanley Jacob of the University of Oregon Medical School in the early 80's. Their research revealed that MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane, is a natural sulfur compound found in all living things. It is actually one of the most prominent compounds in our bodies, just behind water and sodium. A 160 pound man has approximately 4 pounds of sulfur as body weight.
Scientists almost missed MSM when studying nutritional needs because it plays such a small part in our food chain. However, in his research, Dr. Jacob determined that the sulfur in MSM, called sulfonyl, is as safe and as important as vitamin C in our diet, unlike the bad sulfurs: sulfas, sulfates, sulfites and sulfides.



Why is MSM Important?


MSM originates in the ocean and reaches the human food chain through rainfall. It is the prime source of bio-available sulfur, which is lost from our food by processing, drying, cooking and preserving. MSM is an important nutrient (not a drug or medicine) and is a component of over 150 compounds. It is needed by the body for healthy connective tissues and joint function, proper enzyme activity and hormone balance, along with the proper function of the immune system.

Because bio-nutritional sulfur plays such a major role in these healthy body functions and others, it was found that supplementation with MSM improves many health problems such as: allergies, asthma, emphysema, lung disfunction, arthritis, headaches, skin problems, stomach and digestive tract problems, circulation, cell osmosis and absorption.

MSM acts as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. It also inhibits muscle spasm and increases blood flow. MSM is critical to the formation of connective tissue of all types. MSM is a natural form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms, including human body fluids and tissues. Sulfur is found in many common foods, including raw milk, meat, fish and a variety of fruits, vegetables, and grains.
Why is it lacking in our diet?
However, processing, heating, storage, and preparation of foods destroys essential MSM sulfur. Without sufficient MSM sulfur in the body, unnecessary illness of varying types may result. Research has shown that MSM is helpful in improving joint flexibility, reducing stiffness and swelling, improving circulation and cell vitality, reducing pain and scar tissue, and in breaking up calcium deposits. According to Earl L. Mindell, R.Ph., Ph.D., MSM makes cells more permeable, enabling the body to flush out undesirable foreign particles.

"MSM softens the cell walls, allowing allergens, foreign proteins and any free radicals to be moved out of the system," Mindell states in his book, The MSM Miracle: Enhance Your Health with Organic Sulfur.
MSM is an odorless, water-soluble, white crystalline material that supplies a bioavailable form of dietary sulfur, which plays a major role in stabilizing and promoting numerous body functions. MSM is responsible for the flexible bond between cells, including those that make up the skin. It acts to block undesirable chemical and physical cross-linking or bonding of collagen which is associated with tough, aging skin. Approximately half of the total body sulfur is concentrated in the body's muscles, skin, and bones. It is present in keratin, the tough substance in the skin, nails and hair. Sulfur is necessary for making collagen, the primary constituent of cartilage and connective tissue, but it is also responsible for the conformation of body proteins through the formation of disulfide bonds, which hold connective tissue together. MSM does this in conjunction with vitamins and amino acids, and the process is going on 24 hours of every day. The body never stops making new cells, and this calls for an unceasing supply of MSM and all other essential nutrients. Tests conducted with laboratory animals indicated that wound healing occurred faster with a group receiving MSM, but even faster with both MSM and vitamin C supplementation. Beth M. Ley, in her book, MSM: Our Way Back to Health With Sulfur, lists common signs of sulfur deficiency, including slow wound healing, scar tissue, brittle hair or nails, gastrointestinal problems, arthritis, acne, depression, and more. "The body is in a constant state of repair, but if we do not have all the necessary 'parts'", says Ley, the body will "produce weak, dysfunctional cells."

Think of it in terms of making concrete: one man brings water, one guy brings sand, and the other guy brings the cement. You have what you need to make concrete, but the guy bringing the cement keeps taking a break because he's tired. The final mixture or product you have is adobe and not concrete. Similarly, when cells need replacement and you're not giving your body the right balance of building materials, you start losing flexibility in body cells and start building up foreign proteins and free radicals in both cells and body fluids. MSM insufficiency can result in a diverse array of disorders.
MSM is non-allergenic, non-pyretic, and has no interfering or undesirable pharmacological effects. You cannot overdose with MSM - the body will use what it needs and flush out the rest without harm. Because it is also a free radical and foreign protein scavenger, MSM cleans the blood stream, so allergies to foods or pollens can be eliminated, sometimes in just a few days.

MSM is not a vitamin, nor a drug. It is a member of the sulfur family but should never be confused with sulfa drugs or DMSO. MSM is odorless, and does not produce intestinal gas or body odor, which may occur with other forms of sulfur. The formation of Keratin for hair and nail growth is dependent on MSM. MSM is also necessary for the catalytic functions of many enzymes, as they work with glutathione to regenerate vitamin C. MSM is therefore more important in the 'antioxidant network' than previously understood.

Studies suggest that the level of MSM in the body decreases with aging. As a dietary supplement, MSM is recommended for neutralizing and eliminating toxins as well as alleviating conditions of environmental and food allergies, pain from inflammatory disorders, gastrointestinal ailments, and infection.

"MSM works - that's true," says pain expert and assistant clinical professor at the UCLA School of Medicine, Ronald Lawrence, M.D., PhD. "But how it works ... has not been proven." In a double-blind study of MSM's impact on degenerative arthritis, Lawrence found that patients who ingested 2,250mg(two to three capsules) of MSM a day for six weeks felt an improvement in their pain reduction by 82 percent, on average. "I've been practicing medicine for 50 years, and in all those years, I've never seen a substance like this," he says. Researchers are not sure if MSM is so effective for arthritis because of its sulfur content, because of its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, or because of some yet-undiscovered mechanism. Some researchers are pointing to MSM as the possible explanation for why some cancers go into spontaneous remission. The answer here may lie in MSM's ability to assist in moving free radicals and foreign proteins out of the system.
A study published in 1986 showed that MSM was "effective in the chemoprevention of ... mammary cancers." (Study by Dr. D. McCabe, Dr. P. O'Dwyer, Dr. B. Sickle-Santanello, Dr. E. Woltering, Dr. H. Abou-Issa and Dr. A. James, published in the Archives of Surgery, 12/1986

According to a recent book by Lawrence, Jacob, and Zucker, entitled The Miracle of MSM, MSM can be a natural remedy for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis and bursitis, muscular soreness and athletic injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, post-traumatic inflammation and pain, heartburn and hyperacidity, headaches and back pain, and allergies. People taking MSM may notice other benefits, including softer skin, harder nails, thicker hair, and softening of scar tissue. Unlike aspirin, which offers immediate pain relief, MSM may take 2 - 4 weeks before you have significant improvement. "Except in rheumatoid patients - they've felt differences in just one day, and certainly by three or four days," according to Dr. Lawrence.

Dr. Lawrence has treated more than 1,000 patients with MSM. According to Lawrence, "It's safer than water." Patients at the Oregon Health Sciences University who have received oral MSM as part of their treatment show no toxic build-up, even after years of ingesting more than 2,000mg of MSM each day. It appears that the body uses what it requires and flushes out the rest within 12 hours. "The effects of MSM on rheumatoid arthritis almost mimic that of cortisone," says Dr. Lawrence, "and it's more effective for allergies than antihistamines - without the side effects." More info on MSM and allergies here.

Scar Tissue: Burn victim Bill Rich discovered MSM when a veterinarian friend had him try MSM. Bill's skin was flat, purple and leathery, up and down a majority of the right side of his body. After only a few days of taking MSM, Bill noticed an increase in stamina and energy, and, in time an astonishing effect on his scarred skin as it begam to heal, turn pink, and fill in. As of this writing, Bill had little more than a 2 inch section of skin that is still barely detectable after having more than 60 feet of skin graft scars.

Wrinkles: When the body replaces old skin cells, if there is a deficiency of MSM, the new cells are stiff and contribute to wrinkling. MSM supplementation helps the body replace bad cells with good, healthy, elastic cells. In time, wrinkles go away. Brown and black spots and skin tumors can be arrested and reversed as new cells replace the "insuffucient" cells.

Damaged Skin: It is the MSM in Aloe Vera leaves that sooths and repairs skin that has been cut, scraped, burned or damaged. The body then repairs the skin with the proper raw materials. MSM can be added to water, aloe vera gel, and other preparations for application to the skin. Best results are obtained when MSM is applied topically and taken internally.

Lung Dysfunction: Emphysema is not always caused by smoking. Horses and dogs get emphysema, and they don't smoke: It is a deficiency of MSM that causes this condition(welding fumes, smoke, etc. are an aggravation), and supplementation with MSM can reverse it. John Booth of Portland Oregon, states: "I worked in the shipyards as a welder down in the hull and smoked 2 packs of cigarettes a day. I got emphysema; I was coughing and hurting most of the time. I started taking MSM, and after a year I have strong lungs that allow me to breathe easily. The MSM made it possible for me to continue on with my work and my life."

Diabetes: Even diabetics can benefit from MSM supplementation. Self-regulation of blood sugar can occur because MSM allows for proper absorption of blood sugars and insulin, and even repair of a damaged pancreas. When there is an MSM deficiency, cell membranes become less permeable, the pancreas overworks and ultimately fails, while blood sugars saturate the blood stream instead of entering the cells to provide nourishment and energy.

Sore Joints and Muscles: Testimonials of many athletes point to the ability of MSM to increase athletic stamina and eliminate sore muscles. This is because MSM increases the ability of the body to eliminate wastes and toxins at the cellular level, where good health begins.
Actor James Coburn is one person among many who are sold on MSM for arthritis pain.

Candida Yeast: This organism belongs in the large intestine, where it co-exists with acidophilous and prevents the take-over of harmful bacteria. When acidophilous is damaged or eliminated by antibiotic use, Candida can overgrow to the extent that it becomes "systemic", i.e. gets into the blood stream, where it competes for nutrients and emits waste materials that produce myriad symptoms of disease. MSM, by balancing the pH of the blood stream and tissues of the body, prevents Candida from living anywhere outside the intestines, where it belongs. More info on Candida and GSE, here.

Ulcers: Can be life-threatening. See a physician. Ulcers caused by too much stomach acid can be reversed by MSM supplementation.
Ulcers caused by h.Pylori bacteria can be treated with GSE.

MSM in powdered form is very easy to use. MSM is a white, crystalline powder that is odorless and somewhat bitter tasting. It mixes in water more easily than sugar, and just barely affects the taste. In juice or other beverages, it is undetectable.
More research on MSM and other sulfur-containing compounds is being conducted in clinics and laboratories all over the world.
Many find that the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin with MSM is an even better source of relief from joint pain.
Search the National Library of Medicine:
There are over 23,000 abstracts on sulfur.

Take one to six capsules daily. Or take one to six grams of powder(one-quarter teaspoon equals just over one gram). For bulk MSM, a certificate of analysis is available. Our MSM is Certified 99.452% pure. The rest is moisture. (Capsules are made of gelatin and contain a very small amount of rice powder as a filler.)

Topical Cream Contains Nutrients, Herbs and Essential Oils to Heal, Protect and Rejuvenate Skin

MSM Rejuvenator contains a therapeutic blend of MSM (methyl sufonyl methane), topical Ester C®, aloe vera, essential oils and herbal extracts that rejuvenate skin’s natural ability to protect itself against wrinkles and excessive dryness. It also provides prompt relief from irritation and damage caused by sun and wind.

MSM is an excellent source of useable organic sulfur, one of the most important raw materials for building healthy new cells. When MSM is used in combination with topical Ester C, new cells are more pliable and permeable. Fluids pass through the tissues more easily.(1) As damaged or aging cells are replaced with pliable, permeable new cells, the skin is restored and revitalized.

Organic Sulfur...Nature’s Beauty Mineral

Sulfur has been called "nature’s beauty mineral" because it is needed to keep the hair glossy and smooth, the complexion clear and youthful. It is necessary for synthesis of collagen and is prevalent in keratin, a tough protein substance that is essential to health and maintenance of skin, nails and hair.(1-4)

Sulfur is responsible for the flexible disulfide bonds between cells, including those that make up the skin. It blocks undesirable chemical and physical cross-linking or bonding of collagen which is associated with tough, aging skin. Consequently, MSM enhances tissue pliability and encourages repair of damaged skin. If there is insufficient sulfur in the body when new cells are being manufactured, the new cells will be rigid. This rigidity can contribute to cracking, wrinkling and unsightly scar tissue. When sufficient sulfur is present for new cells, the skin is softer, smoother and more flexible.(1) MSM provides the sulfur needed to rejuvenate skin.

Acne, including the severe acne rosacea, responds favorably to MSM. Adequate sulfur and vitamin C are also needed for healing. When the body is deficient in these nutrients, the new tissue produced will be elevated leaving an unattractive, raised scar. Because MSM makes the skin more permeable and pliant, it can also help prevent blistering and promote faster healing of sunburn or wind damage. Also, topical application of lotions containing sulfur have been recommended by dermatologists for seborrhea.(1,4)

A Truly Unique Property of MSM

MSM is licensed under nine U.S. patents and various foreign patents for both nutritional and cosmetic use, and its beneficial effects on the skin are seen both when taken internally and when applied to the skin externally.(2)

Skin is comprised of five layers. This multi-layered organ serves as a semi-permeable barrier to protect against efflux (inside to outside) and influx (outside to inside) movement of fluids and solutes. Because it has the ability to readily pass (efflux and influx) through the skin, MSM applied topically can improve pliability of even the deepest skin layers. MSM applied externally has been found in urine samples as much as 72 hours later. MSM taken internally is secreted in perspiration.(2)

Sulfur is also essential to maintenance of hair and nails. With MSM, whether taken internally or applied externally, nails show not only an increase in growth rate, but also increased toughness and resistance to chipping and cracking. This effect has been seen both in human nails and horses hoofs.(2)

Breakthrough in Skin Care with Ester-C® Topical

While vitamin C is an important skin nutrient, ordinary vitamin C is generally not effective for cosmetic use since it is unstable in water and prone to oxidation and decomposition. Ester-C® Topical is a liquid concentrate containing patented Ester-C® mineral ascorbates with C metabolites, dissolved in a specially formulated blend of polyglycols. It retains superior stability in oil/water emulsions typical of cosmetic formulations. It is also non-acidic, free of chemical derivatives and effectively penetrates deep down into the skin’s layers to help produce collagen and other support structures.

Vitamin C is an important skin nutrient because of its antioxidant properties which reduce free radical damage and because it is essential for collagen formation. Topically applied vitamin C has been shown to protect skin from sun damage. Unlike sun screens and sun blocks, it is equally effective against both UVA and UVB rays. When exposed to UV light, approximately 2/3 of the ascorbic acid in the skin is destroyed, leaving it defenseless. UVA and UVB rays produce oxidative damage to collagen, elastin, proteoglycans, cell membranes and nuclear constituents. Topical vitamin C can increase skin levels of vitamin C up to 20 times the normal skin level. This level could not be reached through diet and oral supplements.(5)

Vitamin C’s photoprotective effects appear to be the result of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, not as a sun block. When it is absorbed into the skin, vitamin C seems to control the inflammatory response associated with UV exposure (ordinarily manifested as sunburn). If vitamin C levels are enhanced in the skin, the connective tissue breakdown that results in premature aging, wrinkles and even skin cancer may be prevented.(5)

Since vitamin C is absorbed into the skin, it is not washed off by water. Its protective effect against UV rays can last up to three days without being effected by bathing, exercise, clothing or make-up.(5)

Vitamin E, Herbal Extracts and Essential Oils

Many natural beauty products contain extra vitamin E for its smoothing and moisturizing properties. When added to cosmetics it provides protection against destructive chemical particles that compromise the integrity of skin. It is a natural moisturizer that promotes optimal water retention in the outer skin layer.(7)

Herbs and essential oils have a long history of use for skin health and beauty.

Aloe Vera is a remarkable antiseptic. It helps damaged skin tissue to heal and promotes the growth of healthy skin. It also helps clear blemishes without scarring.(7)

Jojoba Oil is used for acne, chapped skin, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin and wrinkles.(8)

Evening Primrose Oil gives added protection against skin irritations(8) and is a source of essential fatty acids.

Ginseng is used for age spots.(8)

Chamomile soothes skin irritations and promotes healing. It has a mildly astringent affect that cleans and tightens pores, while its natural glycosides (plant sugars) brighten the skin.(7)

Willow bark is a strong but benign antiseptic.(8)

Calendula is particularly good for very dry or chapped skin. It is also used to treat corns and calluses, athlete’s foot, non-viral verruca warts and other fungal infections.(7)

Sage is used to heal sores and skin eruptions.(8,9)

Japanese Green Tea polyphenols have been shown in animal studies to protect against multiple chemical tumor inducers and to cause partial regression of established skin papillomas.(6)

Cucumber is used for treating burns, chafing, or dry or flaking skin.(7)

Balm of Gilead is an excellent salve.(9)

Lemongrass has an astringent or tightening action.(8)

Well I am going to bump up my LA lotion . My skin has tolerated the 12% Lactic Acid well, but the progress is too slow. I am thinking dollars and cents. Increasing my lotion to 15% (nothing drastic ) should do the trick. Things tend to get stagnant after a while and just need a boost to get going again. Hopefull, it will be here when I start my week-3 on Thursday. I ordered enough LA to peel my stubborn elbows, and old blemishes. I feel like I am removing the training wheels from my Bike
