Do Scents Make Sense? Part 4

Updated on November 13, 2013

Help Me Keep My Skin Beautiful, Yet Fragrance Free!

Skin - the body's largest organ, designed for protection as well as for beauty. How important is it for us to take care of it? Well, think about this: your skin starts to age when you are only in your mid-20s. So it's very important to know how to care for it. We'll do our best to help you to do just that - fragrance free!

Step One: Use a Gentle Facial Cleanser

Select a facial cleanser designed for your special skin type. Be sure to use only cool or warm water, as hot water will strip your skin of its natural oils. Pat your skin dry.

W. Clark tells us: "I've used this Neutrogena product for years and home I never have to change. It does a great job cleaning my sensitive skin. When I've tried other facial cleansing products I always experience a bad reaction."

This satisfied customer says: "Having both oily and sensitive skin, it can be a challenge finding a product that cleans well and is not an irritant. After using this product daily for a long time, my skin still responds well to this cleanser."

 

Step Two: Moisturize!

Moisturizer gives your skin extra protection. If your skin is oily, use an oil-free moisturizer every day. If your skin is dry, you might have to moisturize more often. Pat it on while your skin is still damp.

Step Three: Don't Forget the Sunscreen!

You need sunscreen every day. Some moisturizers contain sunscreen, but if yours doesn't, you need to buy sunscreen. Make sure it has a broad-spectrum SPF of at least 30.

A very satisfied Wayne says: "I have super sun sensitive skin, and have been dealing with pre skin cancers for years. This is the brand we get from the Vets Admin when prescribed a sun screen. They had always prescribed the same product only "Natural Zinc" until now. The Natural Zinc left me white streaked. But this new change to "Clear Zinc" although it still goes on white... after a couple minutes turns really clear. I love the change. AND it really protects in the harshest conditions. GOOD STUFF!"

      You've actually listed a few skin cleansers that I have used! At the moment, I have one from the Simple line. I love Oil of Olay and Neutrogena, but wished they were more reasonably priced.

      @Lynn Klobuchar: I'm really proud of you for supporting him in this. Too many just figure, "That's HIS problem," and do nothing to change his environment. What a great mom you are! :)

      I am pretty lucky -- not much bothers my skin. But my oldest son has to use the Aveeno products. We've been fragrance and color free with him for years.
