    Greetings Jessica!

    I have heard this on numerous occasions from fellow friends but wanted to know if this is true - and safe?

    Does using preparation H or Tucks really help to get rid of wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead?

    I know it sounds nasty, but just would like to know if it actually works?

    What can I do about the fine lines on my face caused by eczema breakouts and the hyrdocortizone cream I used to use to heal it?

    Oh I'm so happy to have an expert to ask!  What can I do about these big ugly random pimples that pop up out of nowhere?!  I don't get them that often, but when I do, they just Won't. Go. AWAY.  The kind that don't have a white head to them, kinda like below the skin and painful.  I've tired: salycic acid 2%, benzoyl peroxide 10%, witch hazel, toothpaste, apple cider vinegar, calamine lotion .... pretty much anything that's been recommended  to me I've tried without success.  I dont wear make up unless I'm going out, and when I do it's Physicians Formula mineral powder make up which I thought was not too bad for your skin. Help!

    What's the best wrinkle cream, that doesn't cost a fortune? Specifically, wrinkles around my eyes and those lines from my nose to my mouth.

    My dd has eczema and her skin is so thick and horrible looking(like calloused looking) even though the site isn't broke out(mostly around her ankles). I'm afraid when she gets older she will be embarrassed and it will affect the way she dresses.
    Is there anything out there to help soften her skin?
