    If so, stop taking hot showers. Use colder water.

    Your dry skin problem will go away.

    I've had this problem. That's what the dermatologist ordered... And it got instantly better. My eczema is also triggered by hot showers... Which sucks because hot showers are my "drug" of choice (in addition to caffeine, fashion, and dancing lolz).

    Edit: same goes for hair shininess. Use cold water. Esp for the last 30 secs of your shower on your hair/skin.
    OMG why didn't i think of herbal tea.... Good idea. Don't usually like herbal tea, but time to start looking for one I like!

    I did not know about the hot shower thing-although I do notice my skin is more red and itchy after hot showers. I'm spoiled with hot showers & hate cold water though Will have to suck it up.

    Yeah. I hate cold showers too. Trust me though... You will notice a big difference within a week if you stop hot showers. Go as cold as you can tolerate. Then when you are about to exit the shower, turn it to super cold and blast your hair with it. Helps close the follicles and seal in moisture... Boosting shine.

    water quality matters too -- the water at my b/f's house is MUCH harder than at mine and my skin always feels dry after i shower or bathe at his place.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    I just found out you can't make jello with pineapples. I put pineapples in mine, and it never solidified.

    Here's why:
    Why pineapple and gelatin don't mix

    Also, papaya, melons, kiwis and I think ginger contain the enzyme which breaks down gelatin.

    On the plus side, it made for a great smoothie!

    Didn't read thread too busy (OR TOO COOL) but I add Now Foods beef gelatin to tea about 2x/week because I don't remember to do it more often. I also add it to almost every crock pot recipe I make.
    I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

    Breakfast. 1/2 scoop vanilla whey, 1T gelatin, handful frozen organic blueberries, 2ish frozen chopped bananas. Puréed. Topped with more berries and a few sprinkles of toasted coconut. Perfection.

    I've been resistant so far to supplementation but I may have to buy some of that greatlakes gelatin and start incorporating more of it into my diet to help with skin/hair/joint pain. I think I'll try the fruit juice gelatin dessert, it sounds fabulous. TQP I'm jealous of your breakfast.
    My food philosophy is whole foods, simply and traditionally prepared. Food should honor your taste, health, and the environment.

    Last week I made panna cotta, but I was too stupid to take a picture. Anyway, it was 4 cups of coconut milk plus 1/3 cup of honey. Bloom 4 packet so gelatin (7 oz) in 3 cups of cold coconut milk, then and boil 1 cup of coconut milk with the honey. Add a drop of vanilla extract. Mix; pour into mugs. Eat later with strawberries and maple syrup on top. YUM.
