People tell me I have nice, soft skin.  I’m now going to reveal the “secret” to having skin like this:

  • Wash only with luke-warm water– hot water will dry out your skin too much and cold closes the pores;
  • Exfoliate only once or twice a week– I use Noxema and one of those little facial cleanser sponges.  Gently abrase your skin.  If you see red spots you were too rough.  Remember you’re just trying to remove the top layer of dead skin;
  • Don’t use soap– It was meant for your body;
  • Moisturize– Don’t trust your cleanser to moisturize for you.  Buy a moisturizer meant for the skin of the face;
  • Use a mask once/week– Use a mask; avoid exfoliating a day or two before and a day or two after.  The mask is taking the place of exfoliating;
  • Don’t touch your face during the day– Oils and other things from your hands are not good for facial skin;
  • Use a foundation primer– If you wear makeup, use a foundation primer before putting it on– preferably one that moisturizes;
