so i’ve learned that with all the hype on keeping skin soft, moisturized, hydrated,
  clean, clear, and gorgeous we’ve actually forgotten to give it time to breath.
i learned that clean skin should have ample time (1-2 hrs) sans cream, 
lotion, makeup, etc every day.  apparently we’re drowning and suffocating our 
skin to some degree by not allowing it to have access to the natural elements. 
we’ve become so accustom to applying moisturizer after washing our face,
lotions after showering and dousing with perfumes/colognes.  uggh. 

we should really only be applying products topically that we would ingest
orally as well.  eventually the product will have the same effect on the body.
