By Monica Patrick, eHow Contributor

Things You'll Need

  • Oil-free makeup remover
  • Cotton balls
  • Facial cleanser
  • Exfoliating body scrub
  • Shower poof
  • Clean cloth
  • Toner
  • Microdermabrasion kit
  • Oil-free moisturizer with sunscreen


    • 1
      Remove makeup before going to bed with an oil-free makeup remover. Use cotton balls to remove heavy makeup from your eyes and lips.
    • 2
      Dab water on your face and apply a quarter-size amount of facial cleanser to your face. Avoiding your eye area, apply facial cleanser to your chin, cheeks and nose.
    • 3
      Dampen a clean cloth and wring out excess water. Use the cloth to scrub the cleanser into your face.
    • 4
      Rinse the cleanser from your face by splashing it with cool or warm water.
    • 5
      Wet your body in the shower and squirt an exfoliating body scrub on a shower poof. Rub the poof all over your body for one minute.


    • 6
      Place a cotton ball at the top of the opened toner container. Turn the bottle upside down so the ball is saturated with the toner.
    • 7
      Apply the toner to your face starting with your forehead. Rub the cotton ball across your nose and chin, too.
    • 8
      Toss away the cotton ball and dampen a new one to apply more toner to your face.


    • 9
      Wet your face with cool water. Squeeze a dime-sized amount of microdermabrasion exfoliant on your fingers.
    • 10
      Rub the microdermabrasion exfoliant onto your face using your fingers.
    • 11
      Polish your skin on your cheekbones, forehead and nose. Pay special attention to areas that are prone to getting bumps. Do not get the product in your eyes. Polish your skin for no longer than a minute.
    • 12
      Rinse the microdermabrasion from your face with cool or warm water.
    • 13
      Squirt a dime-sized amount of the microdermabrasion's replenishing liquid into the palm of your hand. Apply the liquid to your skin to reseal the pores.


    • 14
      Dab moisturizer on your fingertips.
    • 15
      Rub the oil-free moisturizer with sunscreen on to your entire face and body.
    • 16
      Apply the moisturizer to your neck by sweeping the product up and outward. This will slow down the look of "turkey neck."
      My Note: when you are removing, putting on and washing your face use your ring finger because it has the right pressure for our face. Be gentle and kind to your skin. Do not use too much make-up and many skin products especially with strong chemicals. If you can go to dermatologist to give you the right advise of proper way of taking care of your skin and skin products that is not harmful to your skin.  When using  or testing new products for your face use a small portion to see if has any reaction to your skin if yes stop it right away. Even you regularly use the product sometimes prolong use of this can also make a reaction such as darkening of the skin rather than the way it used to be lightening that means your skin is reacting to the product you have been using regularly. Choose products for your skin type, mild or natural ingredients and best for sensitive skin.  Remember, it must be good for me products does not mean it is good for you also.
