1. Clean your make up brushes every two weeks to remove bacteria and residue. If you

don’t, you just keep re-applying the filthy junk to your face!


2. Use a face primer before applying foundation to your skin. This minimizes the

formation of large pores and wrinkles.


3. Always use clean face towels for your face and body. Dirty towels promote bacteria

and germs that can cause acne.


4. Having greasy hair can be a factor in having oily skin which leads to blackheads.


5. Feed your face! Avocados contain vitamins A and C that can help slow the signs of

aging. A facial mask of honey and lemon enhances skin glow.
