Q & A

I need some skin care advice.  On days I work, what can I use to thoroughly scrub my face every night that won’t dry my skin out?  I work in such a dirty environment.  Something that doesn’t cost more than $12.

    • What do you use now? What’s wrong with it?

      I usually use the face wipes from target that gently exfoliate. They are about 3.99 for a month supply. I use them to remove makeup, oil and dirt. If I cleanse with face soap more than once a day my face gets too dry.

    • I don’t use much of anything now. I’m pretty much a plain water sort of person and that works- when I’m not working.  A couple times a month I’ll use St Ives apricot scrub.
      At the last job, on days I worked over the grill all day, I’d just use soap to cut the grease and didn’t have to worry about my skin drying out.

      Now I work in a desert dry environment that is filthy.  I come home feeling like I want to scrub my skin off!  I’m already finding I have to use a lot more moisturizer than I used to.

    • Add a little sugar to your soap and that will exfoliate gently.

    • I was going to suggest St. Ives. Also, make sure you‘re getting enough fat in your diet. Things like avocados, olive oil and such will help with dry skin. When I eat avocados on a regular basis, my skin glows and I seem to need less moisturizer.

    • Oh, thanks so much for the good advice girls.  I’ve always been pretty lax about my skin care, and I’m paying the price the older I get.

    • I was also going to mention St. Ives...have you tried a soothing mask with moisturizer in it?  St. Ives also has those products.  I also use Queen Helene products, awesome results, good price.happy

    • Not a scrub, but I use Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Cleansing Foam.  It’s about $8

    • HI there!  I’m an esthetician, currently working in a dermatologists office in CA.  You definitely don’t need to “scrub” your face to get it clean.  Our skin is thinner now, and also more prone to getting broken capillaries.  Look for a gentle creamy cleanser.  I know it doesn’t feel like it, but it does clean your skin at night without stripping it.  Sugar is excellent for a body exfoliation, but way to harsh for your face.  Dermalogica makes a good, decent priced product. If you want to find something in the drugstore, I recommend Olay or Cetaphil products.

    • There are great at home oatmeal masks that you can do weekly too. Look online for at home recipes. oatmeal masks are excellent.

      And since you bake I’m sure you have oatmeal already.

    • I always forget about oatmeal!  I actually have a jar ground up and sitting on the shelf for just such purposes.  I just have to remember to use it!

    • I used to use that Apricot Scrub a lot when I was younger, now I treat my face to a grape seed peel off masque.

      I use Aveeno products and they have a pretty good cleanser that is not soap. On occasion I’ve been known to make a paste out of baking soda to scrub my face and neck during the summer, but what you use during the summer is not the same stuff you use in the winter.
