CLEANSINGIt is completely necessary tocleanse our face (and alsoneck and neckline) in themorning and at night.At night it is evident(especially for girls): inorder to remove our makeup, but also to removepollution. But in the morningwe also must do it becauseduring the night we havebeen eliminating toxins(usually through our sweat)and our skin will be dirty, y,then the feared spots willappear and our skin willhave no brightness.
MOISTURIZINGMoisturizing is also a veryimportant act. It’ a musti t t t It’s tto moisture our skin twicea day (in the morning andat night).

You feel ittaut and it chaps.•Normal skin: although itnames indicates just thecontrary, thi i not a very t this is tcommon type of skin. It’s the“perfect” skin: with noexcess of grease or dryness.It doesn’t give any problems,and it is rare in people under p p30 years old.

It needsa lot of care because of itstendency to spots, grease andimperfections, but if it’s undercontrol, it will take ages to look , gwrinkled.
SUN PROTECTIONI would also want to remarkthat it is very important touse sun protection, even inwinter, to be protectedwinteragainst the UVA and UBrays, which can causecancer ( (one of the most f hextended skin cancers iseyelid one!) or just spots,which make us older everthan wrinkles.
