I know this will sound horrible at first but, CRISCO as a facial moisturizer. I use Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap and crisco afterwards. I read it in some fashion magazine years ago and I thought it sounded like a recipe for grease and blackheads. It's quite the opposite actually. I've never had better skin. I had a dermatologist tell me that she recommends it often. She said that with it being food grade there are no chemicals in to irritate the skin. She also said it does it's best work after a bath/shower in that it holds in moisture better than most. It absorbs so nicely that I can wash, apply crisco, and then makeup in one fell swoop. Try it you might like it!
