Tips for face and nails you won't believe

I’m not one to paint my nails but I know there are some here that do. That doesn’t mean I don’t like to take care of my feet. Here’s a little tip for healthy nails. Instead of spending a lot of money on pharmaceutical products that have a lot of chemicals and can really mess you up, try Epson salt. Soaking in a little warm water with some Epson salt in it for 20 minutes 3 times a week and before long that yellow nail fungus will be gone, your feet will be clean and the skin under your nails will be pink again. You can do this while you’re watching TV, eating supper, etc.
At one time I tried painting my finger nails with clear polish to strengthen them. But I found that it also makes them brittle. The solution is to eat Jell-o and pudding. It strengthens your nails, makes them grow like crazy and leaves them pliable. It doesn’t hurt to soak your hands in Epson salt either.
Need to tighten up your skin, get rid of the red spots and make your face smoother? Try massaging Preparation-H into your facial skin each night. Leave it on about 15 minutes and then wash it off and put on a good body lotion. The Preparation-H dilates the blood vessels, softens and tightens your skin. It works great if you shaved a little too close also because it has a slight numbing agent in it that stops the burning. Don’t leave it on though as its pretty greasy.

Taking a multi-vitamin each day helps nails grow stronger too. It takes about 6 months for the effects to show at the tips though.

To avoid polish causing your nails to become brittle you should soak your nails in water for 3 minutes to hydrate your nails right before you apply the polish. The polish will seal in the moisture. This is the secret to nails like mine. See attached pic. One more point of interest is to avoid cheap nail varnish. The high end products will contain less of the harmful solvents that are in cheap polish.

[COLOR="RoyalBlue"]Hi Lar,
Can I ask what Jello is, or is it just what we call jelly. Would it be the gelatin that does the trick. We haven't got a slab in cupboard at the mo to check ingredients.
Thanks,
Greg[/COLOR]

"Jello" is a brand name for a gelatin dessert "food". You folks must have something similar, although what it might be called on the European side of the pond is beyond me. :)

I'm never sure whether the US "Jello" is the equivalent of "jelly" (wobbly substance served as a dessert in a dish, often with fruit or cream), or "jam" (preserve made from fruit, usu. spread on buttered toast or bread). Any offers?

[COLOR="Blue"]Jell-O brand gelatin. Nope, you don’t put it on toast, though I suppose you could if you could get it to stay there. LOL Yes, sometimes it has fruit and it does wiggle and jiggle. Kind of like my gut. :dance: :rotfl:

A play on words

Postby Since1982 » Wed Aug 23, 2006 4:10 am

~~~Jello everybody, Jello~~~ Jello is the hair creme that solidifies your hair~~~Jello hair creme Jelllllllllllllllllllloooooooooooooooooooooo~~~

(This is a parody on a hair creme of the 50's and 60's called Halo Hair creme. They had a real song on radio commercials that went that way..~~Halo everybody Halo~~~...Halo is the hair creme that glorifies your hair~~) :)

There was also a radio commercial on Pepsodent tooth paste that went this way>> ~~You'll wonder where the yellow went when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent~~ which was also parodied with ~~~You'll wonder where your teeth all went when you brush your teeth with Ceeeeeee-ement~~~

Us old people remember that "stuff"... :)

Jello is a brand name for gelatinous desserts made with powder and water in the US of A.

Jell-O is Jelly

Postby ChrisM » Fri Aug 25, 2006 4:18 pm

Yes, Jell-O is what is known in the UK as a jelly.

In the US, the word "jelly" refers to a jam, specifically one that does not have actual chunks of fruit in it.

Jam and Jelly

Postby Since1982 » Fri Aug 25, 2006 4:36 pm

I beg to differ Chris, "Jam" in the USA specifically means Jelly WITH chunks of fruit etc. in it. If it has no fruit or other separatable things in it and has a flavor like grape, guava, apple or other flavors it's known as "Jelly" and is, like Jam, usually spread on bread with or without other things like butter or peanut butter, hence the American brown paper bagged lunch mainstay, a "peanut butter and jelly sandwich" which many adult mature people still carry from home and have taken this sandwich to work ever since they took it to school and probably never will change. Other combos also used for this are Jam and preserves. The difference between those two are Jam has a lesser amount of pieces in it than preserves do. Like for instance, Rassberry Preserves would have only a small amount of liquid in the jar and Rassberry Jam would have probably half liquid in the form of jelly.

I know all this because I'm a "peanut and butter sandwich" specialist. :) My fav peanut butter is Peter Pan honey spread in crunchy form. Yum...:)

I've always heard that gelatin is good for nails.

Funny thing... humans don't just worry about their own nails... they worry about horses nails too!

When I was a horseshoer (farrier to some), I saw many clients trying out all sorts of items to help strengthen their horses hooves.
Horses walk on the tips of their toes and the hoove is just their toenail.

I wonder if any of that stuff they gooped on the hooves would work on human nails? :eh: :)

Yes skip

Postby ChrisM » Mon Aug 28, 2006 10:52 am

Yes skip, that is exactly what I said: Jelly is "jam without the fruit"

Jam is WITH the fruit.

In English, "jelly" is Jell-O or any of it's competitors.

One of my de-stressors, which I haven't indulged in in a long time, is a tub soak with Epsom salts, bubble bath, a good book and a drink. Hmm, this could have multiple benefits. Thanks for the tip, Lar.

Jelly and Jello Fish

Postby Since1982 » Tue Sep 05, 2006 2:22 am

If you get stung by a jellyfish, you can't (or shouldn't, but sea turtles do) eat it afterwards. Jellofish, I've never seen, but common sense tells me they're edible. :rolleyes: :sarcastic: :ninjajig: :shake: :shifty: :clap: :cool:

Sadly in-appropriate if you happen to be an Australian stung by a stingray at this moment in time... Another fine (if wildly eccentric!) gentleman lost to the 'world of nature'. Steve Irwin, I'm talking about........ :shake:
