As an older woman, how should I clean my face?

Even if you’ve never had sensitive skin, these days your face can’t tolerate roughness, so ban scrubs, cleansing facial squares, and the like. Always use your hands to gently wash your face. Afterwards, with your face still damp, apply a creamy moisturizer right up to the edges of your lower lashes (you don’t need a separate eye cream).
