One of the most important lessons I remember is when she was telling us about skin care. She said (and I must translate this because she spoke French); “Your face is not a floor, you must never use soap on it”.
She explained how soap was too harsh on the skin and that the best way to wash your face was to first use hot water and a facecloth, give your face a good scrub (this is after removing all the make-up with a proper make-up remover) and then wipe your face with cold water. What this process does is the hot water will open your pores and you give a deep cleaning. Then rinsing with cold water closes your pores to keep your skin protected against the elements and when you apply your moisturizer and make-up it doesn't get into your pores. Acne and other skin problems are often caused by dirt and make-up getting into the pores. You can completely avoid these problems by simply rinsing your face with cold water after your cleansing routine.
I have been using this trick for almost thirty years now and I regularly get compliments on my
