Health and Beauty Tip -- Moisturize!

Even if you have oily skin, you need to remember to moisturize! If your skin is too dry, your pores will open up, which can not only look like blackheads, but also increase the likelihood of getting them. Look for an oil-free moisturizer and use it regularly.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Counteract Blemishes in Winter

If you are prone to blemishes, you may notice they get worse in the winter. This is because your skin gets dry when exposed to cold air, and produces more oil to compensate. After washing your face and applying any medication or astringent you might use, put on some exta lotion to keep your skin moisturized.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Facial Scrubs

Be careful of scrubs and exfoliants that use things like ground-up walnut shells. They are likely to have sharp edges and can irritate or even cut your face, especially if you have sensitive skin. Look for a cleanser that uses "microbeads"; since they are perfectly round, they'll do their job without irritating your skin.
