If you are going to get expert advice about skin care, talk directly to a dermatologist.

Put two metal spoons in your freezer or place in a cup of ice. Put the back of the spoons over your eyelids for about six to eight minutes. This will help curry puffy eyes.

To avoid skin irritation when shaving your face, be sure to wet your face and beard thoroughly with warm water at least five minutes before you start shaving.

The idea is to have the hair soft and easy to cut to avoid scraping your sensitive skin.
