Hey if you don't have oily skin try using cold cream to remove make up. I am over forty and my skin was looking blah. I started remiving make up the old way with cold cream but used a baby wipe to remove the cream. Afterwards I wash with a good cleanser. But it must be all the lanolin that has my face looking younger and smoother.
I didnt even buy an expensivr brand cold cream. A storebrand for both baby wipe and cream is fine. DONT skimp on the cleansers and astringents though. I use clinique or freshface
Olive oil makes a great moisturizer for your skin. It leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, and it is way cheaper than having to constantly buy moisturizers and lotions.
Put a little bit on a cotton ball and wipe on your face (or on your elbows, knees, and heals), blot off with a tissue. For application to the rest of your body you can add a bit to your body lotion, or put some in a spray bottle. (Spray bottles designed for oils work best)
