Do you have a special facial cleansing and moisturizing routine?
Cleansing and moisturizing have been part of my life since a teenager and was the career I ventured into as Beauty Therapist and Make Up Artist. Now I have taken a huge interest in homemade skin care, makeup and other natural remedies I like to incorporate natural cleansers with everyday kitchen cupboard or fridge ingredients such as oils, fruit, vegetables, herbs and grains. They may be used in all types of products so a cleanser, toner and moisturizer is my daily ritual with a face scrub maybe every second day to remove all the dead skin cells and a face mask once a week for some deep deep cleaning!
My routine mainly involves cleansing my skin of dirt and oils while reducing inflammation. Did you know inflammation is the number 1 cause of nearly all skin problems?
I exfoliate once a day at night with a physician grade exfoliant. It is extremely powerful but gentle enough to be used daily. It's actually quite revolutionary.
I never bought into the whole scrub thing as it adds inflammation to the skin, the very thing I try to avoid.
I also moisturize twice a day, morning and night.
I just use bar soap to wash my face, Olay makes a nice one that does not dry out my skin to bad. Then in the mornings I use Rejuven-A from Swedish Skin Care, it is the only facial cream I use. I am a preventive skin care kind of gal, and since using this product I feel my skin looks just as good as it did when I was younger.

Whats your facial skin care routine and what products do you use?I'll start...I'm the old style cleanse/tone/moisturise twice a day and only ever use products from the Simple brand. I use a nose pore strip once a week to remove the excess oils and dirt from my nose too. I'd love to weane myself off...
