Dos and Don'ts of Skin Care

Wash your face every day to keep your skin clean and healthy.
Skin Care

Some people may be born with flawless complexions, but most of us have to work at it. Check out Kidzworld's dos and don'ts on how to take care of your skin!

Skin Care - Cleansing

  • DO wash your face twice a day to keep your skin clean and healthy - in the morning after you wake up and before you go to bed at night. Wash your face more often if you work up a sweat in P.E. or play a lot of sports throughout the day.
  • DO
  • use the right cleanser for your skin type. Use an oil-free cleanser for oily skin, a soothing cleanser for dry skin, and an acne-fighting cleanser with salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide for problem skin.
  • DON'T go to sleep with make-up on, no matter how tired you are! It'll clog up your pores and cause zits.
  • DON'T overdo it. Washing your face 10 times a day to get rid of the greasies will only dry out your face.

Skin Care - Exfoliating

  • DO exfoliate once a week to remove the buildup of dead skin cells.
  • DON'T overdo it. Exfoliating too often will only irritate your skin.

Skin Care - Moisturizing

  • DO moisturize your face every day to keep your skin hydrated and well-balanced.
  • DO use the right moisturizer for your skin type. Use a light one for oily or problem skin, and a more intense one for drier skin.
  • DO wear sunscreen with an SPF of 15 (at least!) every day.
  • DON'T overdo it. Slathering your face with half a bottle of moisturizer cuz your skin is on the dry side isn't going to do the trick.

Skin Care - Treatments

  • DO drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated.
  • DO get plenty of sleep.
  • DON'T pop pimples! Picking your zits can cause scarring, so keep your fingers away from your face.

Yes you're totally right It is a life changing decision. I mean I am going to try and talk with her about it but then again she is 23 an adult so she's at that age that she can make her own choices in life, whether its good or bad. Um but yeah I will definitely tell her how I feel about it. I really don't want to lose her to the gang life, kinda feels like I already am but I'm hoping she'll understand my decision. Thanks.

Well she's already officially a member. I'll try and talk to her about it though, I kinda know why she joined, because she likes the excitement of it, the money and the sense of family. I already feel like I am going to lose her to the gang life.

That is the type of decision capable of changing your life. However, if you don't want to be part of it (And I highly recommend not engaging in that sort of lifestyle), then as hugebear said, you should sit your sister down and explain to her why you do not want to be part of a gang and maybe since you're afraid to lose her, explain that just because you want no part in it does not mean you want to lose her as well.

Me advices is talk to her.  Tell her exactly what your feeling and you doesnt want to join and ask her why she is joining.  Tell her why you think she shouldnt and also add that you feels that you will lose her if she does.

So my big sister just recently told me she was in a gang, I kinda already figured she was but I never asked. I don't really know how to feel about it. She's like my best friend, I can come to her for anything and I'd do anything for her! Anyways she asked me if I wanted to join the family, I haven't really given her an answer yet, and she keeps trying to pull one out of me so I jokingly asked what gang she was in and she told me she was a crip.Telling me that she and her boys will have my back and stuff... I don't want to lose her if i say no but I also don't want to be in a gang.  =(
