SKIN: Handle With Care
For skin care, simpler is often better. For instance, you'll find that wearing protective clothing to shield yourself from harsh elements is a better method of skin care than using very expensive beauty creams. Cleaning your face improperly may do more harm than good. Many of us assault the face with harsh products that can injure skin cells. Just simply wash your face once a day with warm -not hot-water and a mild cleanser. Don't massage soap into your skin because this may clog your pores. Rinse thoroughly to remove all traces of soap. Use a soft washcloth to help remove dead skin cells and dirt. Be sure to rinse the cloth after use. If you live in a heavily polluted area, clean your face a second time each day using a cotton ball moistened with non alcohol toner and gentle massage to stimulate your face.
