Hey Wai, Thanks for your reply. Wai, can u tell me what i should use to cleanse my face b/c everything and anything i use it irritates my skin and makes me break out more. Moistuizers are killer for my skin. I usually jus rinse my face with water but since I work out and am active and sweat alot it seems like thats not enough. I read on your board about walnut oil. Does that help? I've tried Sweet almond oil long time ago and it made me break out. Is this different or should I avoid it. Well it seems like anything I put on my skin makes me break out. I think I have sensitive skin. Well I'm gonna start on your diet at 12pm Tonight. I had to start over cuz I went out to eat and drink last night. I feel im definitely ready to start the Wai diet. I'll let u know how things go, and thanks Wai u seem like a real nice person and it is very helpful having you answer my questions. Anyways hope this works.

Did you try rosewater (which you can buy in shops) or cucumber oil/juice?

Because of the sweating you don't need to clean your face more; actually, the sweating helps to clean your face; all you need to do, is rinse of the sweat with water.
Or do you mean that you need to clean it more often (every time you sweat)?
Do you think that you break out more now that you are physically more active?

It only helps to prevent dehydration of the outer skin, not to clean it.

Every skin reacts differently, so that is very possible.

Walnut oil is milder, you might react to it anyway. The only way to know, is by trying it...

Rosewater is solely a natural and very mild cleansing agent, which should be used instead of soap etc., to prevent dehydration of the outer skin (since dehydration may stimulate the production of sebum, which aggravates acne)
I know you can buy it in "The Body shop", but there must be more shops where they sell it.
It looks like water and smells like roses.
It does not clear scars.

I understand, but you better be patient.
Products that are meant to 'heal scars', actually accelerate the renewal of skin cells. But if this renewal process is a bit less coordinated, lasting scars originate. So, you better allow your skin to heal naturally, which ensures optimum coordination of the recovery process.
Be patient for the best results.

Hi Wai,

I've just bought this 450ml. bottle of linseed oil to moisturize my skin but the expiration date is within 2 months from now and I've read on a website that it best be 'consumed' within 4 weeks after opening. Does expiration time apply for 'consumption' only or for skin care use as well? If so for both, is that oil then good for the body if added to salads or fruit juices?

It's a pretty expensive oil and I'd hate to spoil any of it.

Thanks

hmmm, I though that most (even virgin-) oils could be kept for quite some time...

The standards for foods that are consumed, are higher / stricter than those for products that are applied on the skin, and the oil is made to be consumed, so it likely is still good.
If the oil is not good anymore, your skin will get irritated, so only apply it to a small piece of skin first to make sure it is still good.
