Oranges, Lemons, Pineapple: brightens and exfoliates the skin and purifies the pores. Provides a dose of pure vitamin C. Pineapple is the strongest- It is a potent source of enzymes that soften the skin and is a natural astringent.

“The aspirin mask is a homemade BHA mask available to each and everyone of us, totally inexpensive and highly efficient, made of salicylic acid or tablets of aspirin. BHA is known to help tremendously with cleaning pores from deep inside and therefore contribute to keeping our skin blemish-free. BHAs are efficient on existing blemishes as well, by helping them heal faster and keeping pores clean afterwards.”

This mask is good for all skin types, especially normal to oily and combination skin, acne-prone and clogged skin.

Don’t go to bed with makeup on! Makeup left on overnight seeps into your pores, clogs them, and congests your skin. Make sure that you wash your face twice at the end of the day. Once to get the makeup off. A second time to wash the skin itself.* Exfoliate daily. After washing your face at night, be sure to exfoliate. Use a delicate scrub. If you don’t have one on hand, a tablespoon of sugar or oatmeal will work just fine.(DELICATE sKIN: exfoliate once or 2wice a week)

* Use facial masks regularly. If possible, everyday is ideal. Again, if you don’t have one on hand, make your own. Mashed banana or avocado is good. Plain yogurt also works well.

* Keep a treatment and moisturizer on your face, day or night. Put your skin first. After you wash it at night, put on some kind of skin treatment, whether it’s alpha hydroxy acids, vitamin A or C, or any kind of special cocktail treatment. Let that sink in, then put a moisturizer over that. In the morning, do the same.

* Don’t use the cheapest or most expensive cosmetics. Mom tells me that moderately priced cosmetics are the best. They get the job done, and the ingredients are usually pretty good. You have to keep trying various brands until you find something that works well for you.

* Hydrate your face throughout the day. Whether it’s a commercial product, or one you make yourself (fill a spray bottle with distilled water, add a few drops of chamomile or rose essential oil, shake it gently before each use, and spray it on) hydrate your face, even over makeup, frequently throughout the day.

* Treat your face gently. Never pull, tug, or scrub your facial skin. Be very gentle when you clean it, moisturize it or makeup on it. This will lessen the chance that you’ll damage your skin and get wrinkles.

* Keep your face covered when you’re in the sun. As beautiful as she is, my mom never lets anyone see her face when she’s in the sun. She’ll slather on a high factor sunscreen, put on sunglasses, and a wide brimmed hat.

* Eat fresh foods and drink lots of water. My mom tells me to stay away from “dead food” food that’s basically not fresh. She always eat lots of veggies, fruits, nuts, and drinks tons of water.

* Let go of stress. Stress can show up on your face, no matter how well you take care of your skin. Do something your enjoy everyday, whether it’s watching TV or going shopping. Your face reflects what’s going on inside of your mind.

Ever girl wants 2 have flawless skin but lets face it…I know we don’t. But don’t worry girls. there are ways 2 get close 2 perfect skin. These are the four steps that work wonders. How many times have u guys heard 2

!. cleanse

2. exfoliate

3. tone

and 4. mosturize ur skin

but how many of us actually do these things? I know it may seem like a lot but once u start doing it u wont be able 2 imagine a ur daily routine w/o it. Its like taking a shower. You should cleanse ur skin everyday and do it twice a day…once in the morning and once before u go 2 sleep. Exfoliate only one or 2 times a week if ur skin is really sensitive and acne prone because exfoliaters tend 2 have a drying effect on skin.
If u have oily skin u can exfoliate more. Toning is an important step that gets rid of any residue that the cleanser might have missed. This should be done w/ cotton balls and dont wash off the toner. Mosturize ur skin w/ something that has a spf of atleast 15. Ur skin will look youthful when u get older. ALways remember 2 was ur face w/ warm water before using ur cleanser and wash it off w/ cool water. EXtremely hot and cold water damage ur skin, so Beaware of dat..
