Skin Care Tip: Skin soak

submitted by Kieran McGinn, London, Enland

Tip description / details:
This is a simple but effective method of ensuring that your skin is radiant and pore free before a night out. Simply purchase some regular aqueous cream from a pharmacy and a few nights before the event (not the actual night) smother your face in the cream. This is done at night after a shower. You will notice that your skin will "drink" the cream up. Your skin becomes noticeably plump and smooth for a few dys afterwards. This is only a boost and is not something you should do to regularly as you can block pores and cause spots. Any cream not absorbed after 5 minutes should be wiped off using a clean piece of cotton wool.

A pot of aqueous cream, unperfumed.
