For that peaches and cream skin

No one has perfect skin—well, maybe English women…That is why PhotoShop was invented.

But—says Amanda Friedrichs, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in Sycamore, Ill, too many people with acne or uneven skin scrub and use harsh products.

Wash twice a day and after sweating.

Use a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser applied with fingers, not sponges or cloths.

Do not use astringents, toners, and exfoliants.

Rinse with lukewarm water.

Shampoo regularly—daily if your hair is oily.

Don’t pop things.

Keep your hands away from your face.

Stay out of the sun and tanning beds.

You can see if video on this at aad.org.

Remember that scrub made of apricot pits—they use those in driveways. Maybe avoid?
