I Need a Cuticle Fix

Last Reply by ChynnaBlue 1397838114.453 | Started by patticakes in Beauty Banter

I really some suggestions from those of you that have pretty well-manicured cuticles. I use a cuticle product when I do my own manicure and gently push back cuticles but they always get jagged looking and sometimes even grow onto the nail. Is there a product that really works well that I can buy at the drugstore to keep them from splitting, getting jagged and downright nasty looking? Perhaps I need to use a daily product since my hands are in water frequently during the day. Any recommendations? Continue Reading

I, too, just got rid of an expensive GE front loader that I've only had a few years. I should have gotten them to take it back from the very beginning as I was never satisfied with it. I did a lot of research and ended up buying a Maytag Bravos XL and absolutely love it. It is so quiet and cleans great. I am very, very satisfied! Continue Reading

So happy with all the responses and new information. I started some turmeric and proteolytic enzymes yesterday and will try for a month or so. I had never heard of these enzymes before but I do favor any natural/supplement treatment opposed to pain killers and prescription anti-inflamatories. Also getting some of the Sombra cream, which I never heard of before. Continue Reading

I am so appreciating all the suggestions and definitely am going to try some of them. I really don't want to go back on prescription pain meds, if I can help it. I think I'll buy some Bio-Freeze and have already ordered some turmeric and will try that, too. I do have some Arnica gel, which I use from time to time, and I'll continue with that. Keep the ideas and suggestions coming. I'd be interested in what dietary changes people have made, also, that seem to help. Since being diagnoses in Nov. with diabetes and high blood pressure, I am pretty careful about my diet and have been loosing... Continue Reading

I'm looking for advice from those using any successful over-the-counter/natural supplement for treating thir symptoms. I saw my doctor the other day and she suggested upping the dosage of arthritis strength Tylenol since I don't care to be taking Meloxicam any longer. I'm wondering if anyone has been successful with tumeric or other supplements or over-the-counter products. Continue Reading

Hopefully, someone will respond that has purchased one of these. I am looking at the Novaform Serafina or the Primafina; however leaning toward the Serafina because my understanding is that it's a little firmer. The Serafina is supposed to be Med/Firm and the Primafina Med/Soft. Continue Reading

Unfortunately, mine is not borderline, it's high and I know this time she'll want to do meds. Are these natural formulas capable of reducing your cholesterol drastically or do they just reduce it by a couple of points? Continue Reading
