The easiest way to remember the over-50 skin care regimen is to liken it to salad dressing. Not the creamy ranch or thousand island variety, though. Think of the basics – oil and vinegar, or in this case – vinegar and oil. Use plain, white vinegar as an astringent that pulls dirt from the skin without removing natural oils. The smell may take some getting used to, but vinegar dries colorless and odorless. Dab some on a cotton ball for facial cleaning, or splash onto a washcloth in the shower. Vinegar is also very inexpensive, so don’t worry about skimping. Towel dry or let the skin air dry for a few minutes before following up with the second part of this easy regimen. Now that the dirt has been removed from the skin, it’s time to add some fresh, clean oil. Olive oil, almond oil, or coconut oils are best, as they are light and quickly absorbed by the skin. A few drops of essential oil can be added to the bottle of olive, almond, or coconut oil for a nice aroma or to add some healing power to the process.
