Hold Back the Years in Five Simple Steps!

This has been my skin routine since my early twenties and years later, I still have great skin.

  1. Water temperature and frequency:
  • Lukewarm water is what I always used to clean my face in the sink and when showering.

2. Soaps to clean my face:

  • Fragrance-free sensitive soap.

3. Washrag, hand brush, and hand towel:

  • I always use a washrag to clean my face with soap.
  • After rinsing with cold water, use a hand towel to remove excess water droplets. I then mix in fragrance-free lotion within a few seconds locking in the remaining dampness.

4. Nighttime nourishment to seal in moisture overnight:

  • At night after washing my face I immediately lather on a fragrance-free lotion.

5. Last, but not least:

  • It is not always possible, but I try to avoid sleeping at night with my makeup on.
  • I drink at least six to eight glasses of fresh filtered water per day to keep my skin supple and plump as a grape. If I do not keep up on my water intake, my skin cells feel like they are wizening up like raisins!

It is never too late to start a new skin routine!
