Girl Talk: D.I.Y. Skin and Body Care (Part 3) …… a.k.a., “The Red Article”

Not sure why, but I always wanted to do a "Red" article….I suppose it's simply because I think women look so sexy in that color….aaah, blogging is such hard work  for a guy 🙂

REMEMBER!!  Bad skin is often a result of imbalances deep within the body, often provoked by what we eat (or don't eat). Bad skin is usually the result or the body's natural process of pushing excessive toxins to the surface.

You have to work from the inside out for good skin. To get more info on this subject, check out my article….

Did you know?………….

…that for some people, Aloe Vera can be irritating to the skin.

If you have a "mysterious" skin rash or irritation, try laying off anything with Aloe Vera in it for a month, and see if Aloe was the culprit.
