Let's talk about soap, and how you shouldn't use it on your face. Don't use soap on your face. Okay. Now that that's out of the way, here's something you SHOULD use on your face, and you can use it daily - or morning AND night, even. I use my scrub typically in the morning (nighttime is reserved for oil cleansing, heavy toner usage, or nothing at all when I'm lazy). This is going to be exfoliating, cleansing, and nourishing for your skin, which always seems like what the skin needs first ... Continue Reading

While we're so focused on cleaning under the beds, and cleaning the floor behind the toilet (because who does that more than once a year?), we forget the most important thing. Our faces. And, yes, it's good to give your face a nice spring cleaning. It's easier than dusting the molding around the floor. It's more luxurious than cleaning cat hair out of the air conditioning vent.
