February 29, 2008, Newsletter Issue #86: How to solve dry skin and breakouts

Tip of the Week

When we see or feel blemishes our initial response is to pick at it or scrub our faces till it comes off...wrong. Picking at blemishes will only cause a huge red dot on your face and can lead to scarring. Try using an exfoliator. Only use an exfoliator (for facial use only) once or twice a week. This will remove dead skin cells and prevent further skin damage. However, overuse of exfoliators actually can irritate your skin and cause it to create an "oil barrier" to "protect" the skin from any other irritation.
