Oatmeal soap, lotion, water, and being lucky.

My skin is in pretty good shape for how I abuse it, but there is going to be limits. For how much I abuse my skin and my body age, it's doing pretty good. Also some people benefit from one and days or vit e.

Doesn't have to be pricey, I use cocoaradiant and cheap oatmeal soap.

Oh wow, yeah, if I had skin as light as yours, I'd be burned to a crisp. It was like 103F (39.4c) and like 2% humidity today at work.

Cleanse your face regularly (two or more times a day)

1. With some sort of soft cleanser, don't use anything harsh - we don't have make up to remove like or lady friends. I personally keep it simple with Cetaphil cleanser whenever I don't have some of my organic stuff. Try a few out and pick what you like all of our skins are different so some products work better than others for different people.

2. Splash your face with some water.

3. Lather some cleanser in your hands (for cetaphil i choose not to use water in this process.) wash your face with my hands in a circular motion making sure to get under the eyes, inbetween the nose, behind the ears, you know the deal.

4. I PAT DRY (THIS IS IMPORTANT) do not take a towel and drag it across your face, that will not only remove the thin film of cleanser left on your skin but also cause irritation.

5. After I'm done, I apply coconut oil to my face twice. I do this once immediately after, let the oil seep in, and then after it's dried up I put one more small layer over my face again.

there's a lot of products out there, I encourage you to try them all, look for things without alcohol or the sort.

an important tip is to change your pillow case every couple days, if not, sleep on a fresh towel every night. Our pillows pull in all of the debris from our hair and face during the night, if you don't keep it clean, your face won't stay clean either. Also, do your best to not touch your face with your hands at all during the day.

experience : 20+ years of extreme eczema. hope this helps.

Rubbing your sweaty palms all over your face afterwards does. Answer wash your hands.

Actually, yeah--The bacteria's got a good chance of causing it. Don't ask me how I remember that.

Worked at a spa for 6 years (doing microdermabrasion, facial treatments) -- and I strongly agree with this. Wash your hair often, specially if it's long enough to touch your cheeks or forehead and change your pillow cases and face towels. If you have active acne, choose tissue paper over a face towel that will only spread bacteria.

Maybe I missed it but you don't mention what your skin is like. Do you have acne? eczema, rosacea? blackheads, enlarged pores? lines?

You have to be really careful with some medicated acne lotions and cleansers, many of them have irritants that will do more harm than good long term, changing your skin's ph and composition, making it prone to sunburn and discoloration. Heavy exfoliation is NOT recommended if you have cystic acne, constant breakouts, broken capillaries or rosacea. Only exfoliate once or twice a week, with a mild scrub. Treat any breakouts first, when they're dry, you can either buy a cheap microdermabrasion cloth on ebay, buy a Clarisonic brush or just wash your face with African Black Fog soap, then apply a moisturizer like Aloe Vera. If you have time for an extra step, use a toner like Witch Hazel prior to moisturizing.

Any of the following may help fight acne. Pay attention to your skin's reaction after 4-5 days of use. You may be allergic to salicylates (aspirin) and that will only make things worse. Which is why we use mostly natural products to treat acne, such as:

- Tea Tree based products (cleansers, toners)
- Black African Soap - anti-bacterial, anti-viral, deep-pore cleansing bar. It's so cheap and lasts forever.
- Aloe Vera - best moisturizer for acne-prone skin.
- Tamanu Oil (spot treatment)
- Willow Bark (spot treatment) - there's brands such as Boscia that carry Willow bark products. They're gentle on sensitive skin.
- Witch Hazel (best toner & astringent) - has some natural-occurring alcohol in it but it's gentle enough for daily use.
- Activated Charcoal - great as a weekly mud mask. Try Freeman's.

Other chemical products useful in some cases and only if used sparingly, along with sunscreen, otherwise you WILL burn and get sunspots:
- Benzoyl Peroxide - Dries out pimples. Good for spot treatment.
- Salicylic Acid - Most common active ingredient in acne OTC products. Careful with this, you may not know you're sensitive to it until your face looks like a Pizza Hut ad.
- Glycolic Acid - Great as a wash or as a toner in low concentrations (4-8%). In higher concentrations this will literally peel off the top layer of your skin to reveal new skin. That's we call a Glycolic Acid Peel**.

Other skin concerns:
- Coconut Oil - If you have oily skin, do not overapply. Concentrate on areas were you may have lines or redness only. While you're at it, drink a tablespoon daily, do oil-pulling and cook with it too.
- Shea butter - Prevent lines and wrinkles with this. Look at someone in their 50s. See where their deeper wrinkles and expression lines are when they laugh? Apply shea butter (or coconut oil) lightly, every day in those areas. Thank me 20 years from now.
- Vitamin E Oil & Vitamin C 20% Serum - Great for sunspots, age spots and hyperpigmentation.

Feel free to contact me with questions!

**Must be done by a professional, please do not attempt this, we have seen terrible burns and scarring from people buying acid on ebay to get a cheap at-home "peel".
