A. If you’re looking to find a moisturizer that’s perfect for your complexion, before you buy it, make sure it passes the absorption test. "Touch your skin five minutes after you apply moisturizer," says Rouleau. "If you can still feel it, it's too rich for you."

A: You can create a facial steam at home in just a few simple steps. The blog Crunchy Betty advises boiling three cups of distilled or purified water, along with a few tablespoons of herbs such as rosemary and/or lavender. Once the water has reached a rolling boil, take the pot off the burner and let the water cool for 30 seconds. Drape a towel over your head and rest with your face over the steam for about 5-10 minutes. You can also use a readymade solution like Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Steam Bath, formulated to decongest skin. Crunchy Betty recommends doing a facial steam once every two weeks to help open and clear out pores.

A: According to Everyday Roots, sweating can help minimize blackheads – but only if you cleanse your skin immediately before and afterward, so that no makeup or dirt is absorbing into your pores. Wash your face, then work up a sweat through exercise, a steam or sauna room. Follow with another cleanse and pat your skin dry, then finish with moisturizer.
