H2BAR: Why do women break out on their chin?
SS: Breaking out means that your skin is eliminating toxins. Don’t ignore it. If you break out on your chin, it’s usually indicative of a problem in your endocrine system.
H2BAR: How can we solve that issue?
SS: Drinking ample amounts of water, as well as eating fresh fruits, leafy greens, and other fibrous foods, help keep things moving through your colon.
H2BAR: What are some skin exfoliating tips?
SS: Warm a damp wash cloth and apply to your face. Always wash with warm and rinse with cool. After you wash, exfoliate with the Algae Deep Cleanse.
H2BAR: How often should you get a facial?
SS: If you can, get a facial every 4 to 5 weeks.
H2BAR: What are some of the healthiest foods for your skin?
SS: Vegetables and fruits, especially berries and apples.
H2BAR: How do you protect your skin from dry heat in your apartment or house?
SS: Get a humidifier! Make sure to get the filter free one and also get one for each bedroom and living room.
More tips from Susan:
1. Try to switch up caffeine by doing every other day and replacing with green tea.
2. Steam your face weekly with herbs, like rosemary and thyme.
