Key West, Fla.
— For years, most of my facial hair has been groomed and styled, but recently, I’ve noticed it’s starting to feel like a bit of a nuisance.
My facial hair is starting to look more and more like a mess and that’s a bit disheartening.
If I was going to lose it, I’d definitely want to lose the mess.
But the best way to keep your facial skin clean is to apply a moisturizer, according to dermatologist and facial care expert Julie Johnson, MD, FACD.
It all starts with the makeup you use.
Apply moisturizer in the same area where your skin will be exposed, like your nose and your mouth.
The product should be on your skin immediately after applying it.
The reason for this is because your skin needs to absorb the oil before it gets absorbed into the makeup.
Johnson recommends using a non-comedogenic product to keep it from clogging pores and keep it looking smooth.
