Pretty smooth skin can be obtained without the use of soap and harsh cleansing. ¬†Some folks can wear make-up and not get it on their collars, but I cannot. Some folks don't mind removing make-up at night, I certainly do. ¬†My¬†logic on the subject is quite clear to me: If you take care of your skin, you won't need to weight it down with make-up.
Nothing beats water. ¬†We're 70% or more water so you know that it's life-giving, and it cleanses both inside and outside the body.¬† The teachers and our parents advised us to drink from 6 to 8 eight ounce glasses of water each day.¬† Water is nature's own diuretic and flushes our system of the toxins that can clog our pores and betray our skin rendering it with sometimes blotchy with uneven tones.¬† A flushed system equals smooth skin.
If you are a smoker, you will be amazed that by quitting the beautiful pallor that will be restored to your skin.¬† The chemicals in nicotine dulls and drys the skin.
YOU ARE CERTAINLY WHAT YOU EAT:
Eating food high in saturated fats, sodium, and artificial fillers all contribute to unhealthy parlors and pimple outbreaks.¬† However, if you eat a more balanced and sensible diet on a regular basis, including vibrant colored fruits and vegetables will actually change your pallor to more evenness and smoothness.¬† Some say that the skin adopts to the colors of these nutritious fruits and vegetables, rendering your tone more wholesomely.
Your face should not have to endure harsh abrasives such as a rough towel.¬† When cleaning the skin make sure that first your towel is smooth.¬† Cold cream or cleaning cream are very effective in keeping the skin clean and moisturized without any soap going on you face.
FOR THE MORNING:
a.) make sure that in the morning you dampen and work into your skin, warm water with the soft cloth.¬† After patting dry, apply a liberal amount of cold/cleansing cream to your skin in an upward and circular motion.¬† Gravity is going to naturally pull our skin down as we age, so make sure that strokes are upward and circular.
b.) Rinse the cream off with warm water and pat dry.¬† Apply make up if you like.
FOR THE EVENING:
a.) Apply the same methods of rinsing with water as in the morning.¬† Then apply a liberal amount of Witch Hazel at bedtime.¬† This acts as an astringent and toner. Leave the witch hazel on during the night.
REPEAT EACH DAY
*Witch Hazel is very effective in reducing puffiness on the eyelids.¬† Just apply on two cotton balls and place each one on the eye.
*Cucumber can be used the same as Witch Hazel. Slice thinly and place a slice on each eye while lying down and keep them there for as long as you like.
