A whole new skin routine.

Thanks to all the great info here, I've put together a whole new routine using natural, gentle ingredients.

makeup removal - mix of castor oil and jojoba oil
washing - black soap
face scrub - baking soda mixed with water
moisturizer - a great smelling product with shea, olive oil, vit. E, etc.

I've never really had acne, but I have sun damage, deep forehead creases, large pores, blackheads, occasional cysts, and scars from chicken pox and impetigo. I don't expect any miracles. I just would like to keep my skin clean and moisturized without using harsh ingredients.

So thanks to all of you for passing on your hints and tips.
