Your Questions About Skin Care Advice Uk

Sandra asks…

I know I am posting this in the wrong category but no one seems to want to help me – modelling advice please?

I am not fat/obese/overweight but in the “modelling world” I am. I am 5 foot 8 34A-29-39 AND I am only sixteen – so I am still growing. I would love to be a model and I know there is a very slim chance of me becoming a runway model, but how could I be like models for clothes/skin care/make up/jeans.. just ordinary models that don’t need to be stick thin? Any agencies? I live in the UK. Thanks.

Joseph asks…

(UK) Why are there no charities specifically for white British people?

Well I expect the obvious answer would be that skin colour, or race specific charities wouldn’t be allowed by law because that would be racist, but if that’s the case then all these organisations must be illegal.

It turns out there are actually over 300 charities which specifically cater for the needs of ethnic minorities, but you can’t register a charity aimed at helping whites, that’s illegal.

Is this equality? Where’s Trevor Phillips from the EHRC when you need him? Maybe he’s busy.
Skitzee2k, but do you think the Spanish have a law which forbids their own people having pubs and clubs? Somehow I doubt it.
Before some smartbottom spots it, yes I know there are a few in the middle that are “Black country” charities. Doh, silly me!
strike123_out, I see so because some people who have the same skin colour as me did something hundreds of years ago, now it’s payback time for whitey, is that it?

Forgive me for sounding naive, but isn’t that racism?
angrymammal barriers don’t exist for different groups, that would be illegal. if they did Trevor Phillips would be on the case quick smart.

Aren’t we constantly being told that we’re all the same under the skin, how are Asian people’s eyes or Black people’s diabetes any different from whites?
Skitz “the people In Africa would be Black African”

So do you refer to people from Pakistan as brown Pakistanis? What about people from China, are they yellow Chinese? Something tells me you don’t use those terms. So why use them for us?

jennmill answers:

Envious people are trying to get “revenge” for the fact that northern European people made the modern world. They have pressed our hyper self critical low intelligence liberals into a whole matrix of non white charities. Of course it is racism, they are in effect taxing us for our success, ( most of these charities are tax exempt)

White real British readers should ask themselves this question:

” Could you really go to another country more successful than the UK (if you can find one) then spend your time castigating and criticising that country, also setting up your own special charities?

~edit~~~ By the way , of course charities cannot make profits but expenses and high salaries can be paid. I am not accusing any of the mentioned charities of “milking” expenses and paying fat salaries but I would like to see the Charities Commission auditing methods.

How are these Charities checked? It seems many small ones are hardly checked at all see this link:

Richard asks…

What can you do for premature ageing?

i cannot afford botox or dermabrasion right now , i live on disability.

im 32 , and because of life stress, i feel ive prematurely aged slightly . and also i think lack of sleep has contributed to.

i have dark lines from the corners of both eyes stretching to my cheekbones, open pores , frown lines in forehead , skin blemishes , and wrinkles where there weren’t before.

im in the uk.

can anybody recommend a skin care brand , face wash, moisturiser , face scrub , a sun block brand – or whatever that i could go out easily and buy, get easy access to ?

can you name exactly what to buy , ie – face wash, face scrub , moisturiser , what brand to get ?

– and when and in what order to use em ?

could you name and be detailed about what to buy ? i need DETAILED advice please .

nothing complicated that you have to order online or any trial product crap – just strait forward, DETAILED advice .

and finally does dermabrasion work ? is it costly ? and should i save up to have it done or just concentrate on skin care of the face ?

jennmill answers:

Well my advice:

Try buying 100% pure aloe vera gel,apply daily.Aloe vera helps heal,Also milk it has lactic acid (found in alot of really expensive creams!).Honey works well as a mask,leave it on for about 10 minutes. 🙂

Also try an egg mask,simply leave egg white (from one egg) on for 10 minutes.

I advise you to try a tomato ,take a tamato and cut a few slices from it and then leave the slices on your skin for about 10 minutes(flesh side down).

Benefits of aloe vera

Many ancient works, including the Bible, refer to the use of aloe. One of the first documented users of aloe vera was Cleopatra, who lived from 68 to 30 B.C. She is said to have used the gel on her skin as protection from the sun, and to have thought the gel helped to keep her skin young-looking. In fact, the Egyptians may have used aloe vera in their embalming of bodies, among other uses.

About the year Six B.C., Dioscorides, a Greek physician, discovered aloe vera was effective in treating a wide range of ailments, from kidney problems and constipation, to severe burns of the skin.

Today aloe vera continues to be widely used around the world. Studies have shown that aloe vera speeds the healing process, particularly in burns, including those from radiation. It is also used by dermatologists to speed healing after facial dermabrasion, which removes scars from the skins top layers.


The possible benefits from the use of aloe vera gel and juice include:

1. May help sooth skin injured by burns, irritations, cuts and insect bites.

2. May help moisturize and soften the skin.

3. May help speed the healing of skin wounds,acne, burns and other injuries.

4. May help (when taken internally)with constipation, diarrhea and other intestinal problems.

5. May speed and improve general healing when taken internally.

6. May relieve itching and swelling of irritated skin.

7. May help kill fungus and bacteria.

8. May improve the effectiveness of sun screen products.
Benefits of Lactic acid

Lactic acid is a naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acid that is fermented from milk for use in cosmetics, lotions and cleansers to assist in smoothing and moisturizing the skin. Lactic acid is of great use in any healthy skin regimen, as it aids in the sloughing of dead skin cells, increasing cellular turnover while hydrating the skin for a fresh and rejuvenated complexion. Lactic acid can be used for many skin problems including the management of acne, wrinkles, psoriasis,sun damage, keratosis pilaris and hyperkeratosis, and can even be used on slightly sensitive or allergy-prone skin.


After applying egg whites, your skin takes on a tighter, more lifted appearance, causing some skin care aficionados to go so far as to call the egg white mask an “egg white face lift “. Other benefits of this natural skin care treatment, egg whites have been known to reduce the appearance minor breakouts, as well as enlarged pores.

Tomatos and Lycopene

Lycopene is high in antioxidants and fat soluble, with a small molecule structure that is easily absorbed by the skin. There is a drawback however. Lycopene is not dietary soluble (the molecule structure is tightly bound) unless cooked.Tomatos have high levels of both vitamins C and A,great for skin.


Honey also is be good for your skin. It has the ability to attract water. You can use honey instead of alpha hydroxy masks because of its high content of the acid. It is also safe for sensitive skin.

You can also use it as a moisturizing mask for your skin as well as your hair.

Invest in a good sunscreen.


My fave for face:

My fave for body:

Eating more carrots, tomatoes, and pistachio nuts can help ward off the visible signs of aging
Swimming, meditation, and a calorie restriction diet can even help you live a longer life.

Mash ripe papaya and apply to your face for about 20-30 minutes. Wash away with warm water and add a little moisturizer to experience one of the most luxuriant anti aging facials ever. Papaya can be substituted with ripe (not over ripe) banana for similar results.

You must have heard that vitamin supplements can improve the texture of your skin for which purpose you would do well to include these to your diet. You can also expose the skin to some topical applications for boosting the result – mix tomato puree and lentil flour in equal proportions. Subsequently add half a teaspoon of lemon juice, and about half an inch of turmeric paste. You can apply this simple anti aging remedy to the face twice or thrice a week for best results.

Avocado really helps helps to give you a young and fresh look because of its oily nature. Simply apply either the pulp or slices of avocado on your face and you skin will get that rejuvenated look.

In order to get that radiant look, grate raw coconut and squeeze milk out of it. Apply this milk on your face and it will give your skin a glowing effect.

The benefits of using home-made remedies are such that they won’t cost you too much. It’s not like going to a beauty salon or seeing a skin specialist, using costly cosmetics to look good. Home-made remedies save your time and money, plus they are quite effective.

Regularly applying home-made mixes will give you that youthful appearance you always been craving for and you don’t have to spend to much of time in doing them. Just allot a couple of minutes each day for your face treatment and in a few month you will see the difference

I saved the best for last,My number one anti aging tip for you is…WATER!,drink plenty of water!!(drink half your body weight in ounces). It makes a difference and it shows!

Hope I helped!. 🙂

Paul asks…

where to move to in Australia?

Hi my name is Loren, Myself and my partner have been discussing moving to live in Australia for a while but we are unsure where is the best Place.
We have to young children aged 5 and 2 , so a good school is very important, also a good healthcare facility. We would like to have a chilled atmosphere where we live but with the option of good range of shops and restaurants and lots to do for our children. I like good shops and social places and nice bars. My partner is a drainage engineer and has been for 7 years, he also works in certain types of plumming but unfortunately doesnt have a plumming qualification. I work for Clarins (international skin care company) but its my partners job that we will be applying for over in Oz.
we would like some advice on a nice place to bring up our children where the weather is warm with a beach not too far away.
Is the health care over in Australia as ahead as the uk and the US with up todate treatments and medical care? Thankyou for taking the time to read this, I look forward to your advice


jennmill answers:

The best place for you, would be the south end of the Gold Coast. The weather is always warm and there is a lot of shops and activities for your children. It’s right on the beach and has a chilled atmosphere.

Chris asks…

why would any normal person want to spay/neuter a rabbit?

i had a look in the RSPCA website (meant to be the organization which ‘cares’ for animals in the UK) and i read the wierdest things there !!

first they advice everyone to neuter/spay their rabbits (cut their genetalia) !!! then to not mix rabbits of same sex (has to be 1 neutered male + 1 spayed female) !! then to instal microships under their skin so they can basically be ‘scanned’ if lost (like when u buy an item from the supermarket it gets scanned in the tills) ..

isnt this the most unhumane things u ever heard ?? would u like ur genitals to be shopped ?? or some metal ships fixed under ur skin !??

cant vets make money from other things? just let the rabbits live normally, if people are afraid of them being ‘aggressive’ so dont f****n raise them then!! buy a fish or a bird whatever ..

jennmill answers:

Alot of people think that gettin’ the bunny fixed will make it less agressive. None of my 5 rabbits are fixed and they are just fine. I agree with you, why would you want to destroy what, well, everything is made for. We were put on this earth basicly to multiply. All people have to do is control your rabbit. The bunny doesn’t need to be in the same pen as another rabbit anyways. And who loses a rabbit? If one of mine got out, they would be something’s play toy in no time. If it were me that someone tried to put a chip in me, I’d bite ’em
