In the A.M. splash cool water onto the face for about 10 secs. This will help to create circulation and blood flow to the pores. After the cool water, take a warm towel or facial sponge and gently press against your face for about 20 secs. Now go ahead & wash your face with luke warm water. After washing, apply your moisturizer to a damp face. This will help to lock in the moisture & prevent dryness.
