Never, ever, use soap on your face!
“So, starting in high school I would use cold cream to cleanse, followed by toner to keep the pores clean. As I grew older I would use cleanser and toner. Now I use micellar water if I didn’t wear makeup, or the full cleanser/toner routine when I do. Btw, I’m 66 and have zero lines on my forehead and minimal lines around my eyes. Of course, I have laugh lines around my mouth from all those years of laughter!” —MFComedy
Yogurt and besan (also known as gram flour) will make your skin glow like the top of the Chrysler Building.
“Mix in equal parts and use as soap in the shower. It’ll be a little cold but worth it. It makes your skin look glowy and clean.” —aarohibarman
Olay Complete moisturizer ($8.99) is the key to great-looking skin.
“My mom started using it in college and got me on it when I was about 10 years old. It’s such an easy and affordable way to get your daily moisture and SPF in, all with one simple step!” —helenabelles
