If your face is so dry and peely that all your moisturizers just aren’t helping, try this remedy from NYC dermatologist Lance Brown: Soak a washcloth in ice-cold whole milk, and lay it across your face for 10 minutes. The natural lipids in the milk will plump up and rehydrate your skin, while the cool temp and lactic acid will tone down redness and remove flecks.
Baking soda mask for acne. Great for reducing inflammation, redness, and bacteria! I used this when I was a teen. Add enough water to make a paste. Keep a dry face cloth handy in case you need it. Now that I'm older, I need moisture so I mix baking soda with baby oil!
Today I’m shaking the soda can and popping off the lid. I’m speaking with New York Times consumer health reporter, Anahad O’Connor, who boldly and articulately writes about nutrition, chronic disease, obesity, and the food industry.
