One thing I've read (but now can't find ) is that if your skin is very oily, the egg yolk might not help because it is very oily, in which case you should try an egg white. Slighty whip it with a fork first. I didn't mention this because I figured most people reading this were like me, but your DD is so much younger.

Here is link I found with people chatting about eggs and acne:

Good luck! We should all be able to love our faces

I've been using egg white face masks since I was a kid. It worked beautifully for me as a teen. Just put it in a bowl and whisk it with a fork, then apply to face and let dry. It feels really tight and wonderful, and rinses off easily. Hmmm... I haven't done this in a while, but maybe I should try it again. My pores have been a bit icky too.

I find that pads with no barrier work just fine - I just be sure to change them before I get any leaking. I also have some with a wool barrier which is really nice!
I know nothing of natural products for AF can you tell me about sea sponges?

I really want to do something different. I use regular pads and tampons and I find them irritating (literally -- they irratate my skin!)
Her website also says to check on Mondays or some day like that...to see if she updates her inventory...so...check back.

That's what I use too so I guess I do do a *natural* product.

Thanks KM for the link!

I have an IRL girlfriend that just bought this. She's not an "all natural" kinda gal, although I've been luring her here......she was SOOOOOO happy with the Diva she called at 11pm to tell me. She says "your dh is going to think I'm nutso calling to tell you about AF this late!"

I am now manifesting a diva cup.

Is this your friend that you manifested? The one you hadn't talked to in a long time?

Self perpetuating cycles....

So, Louise Hay says that allergies are someone irritating you.

I have allergies, and there's something that really bugs me, a lot. It has to do with... well, allergies. I HATE having tissues all over. Yep... you have to use tissues all the time, and then they're everywhere, and they irritate me.

I don't like tissue boxes. I don't like used tissues.

So in our bedroom, we have two nightstands- his and hers. Both of us end up with tissues all over them, because we each have our own box of tissues, and the trash can is in the bathroom. Who gets up first thing in the morning to go to the bathroom to dispose of tissues??

Every morning, I'm gathering up tissues before I start the day. And looking at those horrible, mismatching (but as close as I could find) disposable tissue boxes.

I finally went and got some little mini trashcans, and tissue box covers. Interestingly enough, my whole attitude about mornings has changed. Not surprising, but it just goes to show how well my affirmations have taken root in my head.

The smallest thing, really. Just two trash cans and two tissue box covers... yet it never occured to me that I DESERVED to buy these "frivilous" items. But how much is a good morning worth?

I kept trying to find a good attitude about the kleenexes, and trying to cure the allergies, and trying to treat the allergies.... and the whole time, I could have just bought a couple trashcans and some tissue box covers.

That just wasn't complicated enough, though. :

Oh, and by the way, they look very handsome!

Amris,

Awesome that you took care of your aesthetic needs

Just a thought - you might want to try handkercheifs sometime, if you need to use tissues a whole lot - they are so much easier on your nose! I especially like the ones made of flannel - and the kids don't even fuss when I use those on them.

I also have horrible allergies and I use a reusable cloth diaper instead of tissues. My nose thanks me for it too.

Now to catch up! Good morning! :

Thank you everyone for all the skin info yesterday and today. (and I agree InJoy, I love it when something I have been thinking about comes up here)

I have gained some really wonderful information from that. I love hearing about the eggs and honey etc. And I agree, a little detox/cleanse will make a big difference I think. Although, I think I might stick with the UltraClear and skip the salt water : I dont think I can do the salt. Those who have done that are braver and heartier souls than I!

The Louise Hay stuff is really helpful Amris and Linda. Really interesting to think about myself in these ways. I am usually a pretty confident person, but since having a baby and a tighter budget, I just dont get to spend as much time or money on appearances (up til now!). I have quit getting the expensive haircut, buying makeup, buying clothes (unless at thrift stores) (up til now!) and frankly spending any time on my appearance at all. And some of that truly does make a difference in how I feel. While what's on the inside is what counts, I realize that feeling my outer appearance is frumpy and unkempt doesn't make me feel all that great. I realized the other day that pretty much all my clothes are from clothes swaps or value village. And there isnt anything wrong with that, it's just that often times things dont fit all that well, are pretty out of date and well, used up. Some decisions are environmental and health related, I like the idea of bowing out of consumer culture a little bit buying used or trading and I like using only healthy stuff on my body instead of toxic products. So, I guess, what it really boils down to is taking time for myself and being more accepting of myself. I suppose that's the rub for a lot of mothers isnt it?

And I like the affirmations!

Thanks again everyone!

Another one from Hay:

Pimples: Small outburst of anger. I calm my thought and I am serene.

Egg yolk makes a great face mask and helps heal and prevent acne. It is loaded with vit. A. I let it come to room temp first, and leave it on for 20 minutes. It leaves my face very smooth, heals up any acne very quickly. All my pores look healthier. As an acne treatment, it is ideal to do it everyday for a month (I'm not being that consistent and I'm still getting great results). I think it would be a great occassional mask for a woman without acne.

I have spent tons of money of skin care, and eggs yolks are better for my skin than anything I can buy. I only eat the whites because of the saturated fats, so the things are free!

You'll figure out what works for you VERY quickly, and your skin will soon have a beautiful healthy grow.

Anyone here ever make their own cloth pads? I have to use a pantiliner every day and I hate it. I bought organic cotton batting and flannel and tried to make some liners but without wings they kept riding up. Anyone have any experience making their own pads and have advice? It just seems like an easy thing to do with the basic sewing skills I have.

Thanks,
Tara

PS - Kate you are such a tease.

I've always been a closet daddy's girl and though he is a grouch, I'm still really happy that he'll get to see our house and the boys can see him. The youngest had never seen him, and my middle son only once and he was three months old, so pretty sure he doesn't remember

Only concern now is keeping my vibe up while he is here. He is living proof of LOA, he has spent years saying that his life sucks and poor him, and well, it has for him lol, and he never has had any interest in being positive about it. His wife is great, and has a very optimistic outlook, so he has slowly improved this, but I'm assuming that my possitivity is going to rub off on him while he is here
That's great on the tickets! Here's some extra positive vibes to rub off on your dad while he's there

Welcome, or welcome back, Mama!! I agree with everyone else... I rarely venture out of our little *party*... for me it's not so much the flaming that gets me down, because I am pretty good at figuring out who's the idiot, them or me , but the constant bitching and whining about how miserable everyone is KILLS ME. (seriously, if you don't have enough money for food or shoes, stop having another baby every damn year! Whew, got that out!)

Tell him

Oh and if you get a chance, could you check out my blog for today? (Click on my name in my sig) I am trying to decide something about my traveling, and Xanga now allows non-member comments!
: : Okay Devon Peppadew Peppadew Church It UP! You have me totally cracking up this morning with all this!

And I checked out your blog, and I'm sorry, I wont be any help at all I think those all sound like wonderful options. I still vote for the freewheeling backpacker in Europe, but I didn't see that was one of the choices!

On Wooly Wonder Forums, they have a lot of the same smilies but a few we don't, including the CUTEST little one that's called "crazy" but really looks like a little guy hopping all around blowing kisses!!

re: Mama cloth -- for Petersmamma? I think -- MAKE THE SWITCH! When I first started reading about it I was like, oh ick. But eventually I came around and switched and I LOOOOOOVE it. I will never go back. Check out www.amazpadz.com, I love her stuff. My af's have been insanely light since I started using cloth too -- the chemicals in sposies and tampons actually make it heavier!
Okay, I wanted to throw my hat in the ring too and say I love mamacloth, mamapads. I tried the Keeper or Diva cup, I cant remember which, had a hard time getting the hang of it and gave up. But with cloth pads, I just figured, I use and wash my own cloth diapers, so it's really not that far of a leap. I too thought EEWWWW the first time I heard about it, but that was before diapers. I used to use organic cotton tampons and pantiliners too (and they did irritate my skin a little and I got tired of buying them and throwing them away), but figured I'd give cloth a shot. I love it now. I bought a few at a co-op here in the TP a couple years ago and then sewed some for myself out of some flannel I dad. My periods are shorter now it seems. I recommend cloth to everyone I think wont be completely freaked out by it.

just wanted to ask, cuz i have heard of children ODing on salt and dying and i imagine there is a limit for adults as well? also i have heard its really bad and hard on your kidneys to slam too much water at once and can cause your kidneys to shut down?

ETA i also read in the health and healing forum that there isnt really any evidence that stuff accumulates in the colon, and that colon cleanses are a racket. i guess when people do autopsies they dont find any kind of build-up usually.
So, I had a reply partially typed out to this last night, and then I just needed to SLEEP!

So, you mix 1 qt. of water with 2 tsp. of salt (you can use less, but you don't want to use so little that it doesn't work, cause then you are just drinking nasty salt water and getting no benefits!). You want to make sure it is SEA SALT, not iodized salt. From what I have read, this large volume of water with a relatively small amount of salt that does NOT have iodine in it is similar to the salt water content of your body, so it just bypasses your kidneys (or something like that ). I will pass the website along to anyone, if you want to PM me, but I don't want to post it because it's kinda weird and I would HAVE to say that before posting it, and then I think I might be violating the UA or something!

Me too! I am going to try the honey thing! Fortunately, I don't get breakouts hardly ever anymore, but my pores are gross. Will the honey help with that?

I think it would!

Tell him

This is to my dh, so, uhhhh....I had better do that AFTER ds goes to sleep, otherwise there will be trouble!

Yeah, but I have heard from others that you have to STALK her hyena cart, and I keep forgetting. Right now, my two obstacles are initial expense (and these babies are kinda expensive, since I go through one package of generic thin pads every month and a half at about 2.50 a pop) and finding some I will like. Amazpadz have come SO highly recommended....I'm seriously thinking of doing a diva cup just because I know I can GET one, ykwim?

I agree about NOT doing this when pg, but I always did 2 tsp. in 32 oz water (my original recommendation said a quart, and when I did the conversion, that's what I got, though I'll admit that it may not have been correct, but it definitely worked.

This might sound odd, but what about using double sided tape to stick them to your underwear? Or having special underwear with velcro sewn in for that time of the month? Yeah, it sounds odd, but I bet it would work well.

I have the cutest panty liners from.... somewhere... (I'll post if I can remember the WAHMs name) that have wings with snaps to fix them around your underwear. They're awesome.

PS - Kate you are such a tease.
I have. I used a variety of cloth I had laying around. Some flannel and some terry cloth from old towels. I did not use any waterproofing layer. I just did multi layers and made them different lengths and widths for heavier and lighter days. I personally liked the terry cloth the best. If they are riding up then I'd suggest making them longer. They did tend to work better with tighter clothes that held them closer to the body.

Sometimes I say "hot diggidy dog" and my 2 y.o. repeats it and it sounds super cute in a 2 y.o. voice.

I smile every time.

I love wingnut. And goober. (We call the kids goobers. ) Ok, so not as high-brow as reciprocity or serendipity, but I'm sure it fits with knucklehead.

I have added peppadew to my favourites list for sure.
