1. Don’t use astringent formulated for oily and combination skin.
2. Don’t use abrasive, exfoliating granular-based masks.
3. Don’t use deodorant-type soaps on your face. From the neck down deodorant soaps are fine.
4. Don’t use petroleum jelly, cocoa butter, mineral oil, or baby oil as a facial moisturizer, especially if you are going to wear a cream or liquid-cream make-up foundation. However, cocoa butter and petroleum by-products are excellent or the lower parts.
