Ditch shower gels. Throw away body soaps. Just use a body scrub. It'll help clear up your bathroom shelf as well - thank me later. Before you step into the shower, rub the body scrub upwards in a circular motion, massaging into the skin. Using scrubs with water dilutes the particles. You wouldn't even have to waste time dry body brushing. Buy a good scrub with plenty of beads. Don't buy a sugar scrub as that will clog your shaver with residue.

Sensitive skin?

If you have sensitive skin, like eczema, you may have to go to the doctor and get prescribed medicine.

What you can do at home, however, is to stop using perfumes, and perfumed lotions and potions, on your body. The fragrance triggers redness and itchiness.

Spending money on face wash and creams? The atrocity!

I don't understand how people will buy expensive shoes and bags but won't dare part with their money over expensive facial products. How many times can you use a bag in your lifetime? 100 times? 200 times? Your face is on show every single day! If there's one thing that you should invest in, it's your face. You need to buy a good face wash and face cream that actually works for your skin. However it's only through trial and error that you'll you find the perfect combination. Some products may be advertised for oily skin, but may be too matte, or even too greasy, for your personal brand of oiliness.

To actually see if the products work, you have to use them for at least a month, day in, day out. You need to give your skin time to react with the product. It doesn't happen overnight! What does happen overnight? Botox. Botox happens overnight. Even then you need time to heal.

Scrub, shampoo, face wash, water - What order?

What to use when?

First you scrub-a-dub-dub. Then you shampoo your silky locks. Then you wash your face. If you wash your face, then wash the hair, the greasy residue from your hair will go straight to your face, so what's the point of washing it? This is especially beneficial to people with troublesome skin.
