Homemade Face Exfoliant
Routines: We men are not good at following cleaning routines. What I always recommend to men is to try to select a single product that they would like to use to clean and exfoliate that is not very expensive over the counter. Place that product inside the shower and clean you face while you shower. If you place it under the sink, it will be there 10 years from now. ...Read more
If you scrub your face with an exfoliant that's a bit too harsh, if brojen veins were to appear would this be seen mmediately or take weeks?
Scrub: Both are possible but broken veins are not usually the problem unless the area was really traumatized. There was a facial scrub that had apricot pit fragments in it. These little hard particles caused gouges on the skin and resulted in scarring. Be gentle on your face. Blackheads are not due to dirt. The brown color is oxidized lipid in the follicle. ...Read more
How often should I use an exfoliant on my face if I have very dry skin? What is the best one for dry, acne prone skin?
Dry facial skin: Skin becomes dry when there is an impaired skin barrier that lets moisture escape. When the skin is exfoliated, more of that barrier is removed, so the skin actually becomes drier. Gentle cleansers that do not scrub are best for dry skin, even skin that is acne-prone. There are also acne products that don't dry the skin as well. ...Read more

I wash my face atleast 8 or nine times a day...but still get Lot of pimples...is there any natural homemade way to solve this??????
Real Rx: You have been done a major disservice. Acne has nothing to do with cleanliness and whoever told you otherwise is ignorant. No home remedy works. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in a few weeks, your physician will need to write a Rx to add to it. "Natural healing" is mostly bunk. You owe it to yourself personally and professionally to be acne-free. Scientific medicine will do it. ...Read more
