Skin Care Tip: Humidify your skin

submitted by Cynthia Tomaskovic, San Angelo, TX USA

Right before I go to bed I cleanse and tone my face and neck. I then use a spritz bottle to spray a fine mist of water on my face and neck. I immediately apply any night treatments and moisturizer over the water before it evaporates or dries. I do basically the same thing in the morning before I apply makeup. I spray my face and then apply day treatments and day moisturizer while my face is still damp. I also invested in a humidifier for my house as I live in a dry climate. If you cannot afford to add a humidifier to your heating/cooling system I recommend using smaller room humidifiers or placing containers of water around your residence. The evaporating water will add moisture to the air. People who live in damp climates may not need this extra moisture but I live in West Texas and have great skin for the dry climate. I am 55 going on 56 and always get compliments on the lack of wrinkles I have for my age.

Everyone tells me that I do not look my age and that I have great skin. The sales personnel at Lancome and Estee Lauder always tell me my skin has few wrinkles. My hairdresser tells me the same thing. I visited a dermatologist for skin care recommendations and she also told me my skin is in great shape for my age.
