# telling about your skin problem
--The girl sitting 3 rows away is so pretty. Her skin looks baby smooth.
--Yeah. She really is pretty. Her skin is quite clear and without blemishes.
--I wish I has such a smooth skin. More glow and less shine.
--You do have a lovely face, Becky. You just don't take care of yourself.
--What do you mean I don't take care of myself? I exercise, have healthy eating habits, and sleep well.
--I know you have a healthy lifestyle. But your skin needs a lot more than that.
--Really? Like what?
--There are many natural home remedies to help manage oily skin and acne flare-ups. You skin needs a lot of pampering, especially your face.
--Hmm...I definitely have to start taking care of my skin.
# skin rash due to shaving
--Oh Jack. What's happened to your face?
--Nothing much. I cut myself while shaving this morning.
--The cut looks like a heat rash.
--I know. I can feel it too. It's really irritating.
--Why do you always cut yourself when you shave? Don't you know how to use a razor?
--I definitely know how to use a razor. It's just that my skin is really soft as compared to other guys', and my beard is really full.
--So you still have a baby skin, kiddo!
--Right, right. Any advice you want to give me, though?
--Well, you can ry shaving in the hot shower, or in the sauna. The steam will help open the pores.
--Hey! Good idea! I'll give it a try next time.
--Oh, and using a moisturizer is a good idea.
# oily skin
--Hi, Jenny. How are you doing?
--I'm good, Becky. What's up?
--Hey, you know about skin care, don't you?
--Sure. You need some tips?
--I have oily skin and I'm sick of these acne outbreaks that pop every other day. How can I get rid of them?
--My first advice to you would be to wash your face often, especially before going to bed. Try to use a soft cleanser, not harsh soaps.
--I do that already. Is there anything else you can help me with?
--Yes. I'll give you a cleanser for oily skin that you should use twice a day. You can also use cosmetic blotting paper. But don't scrub it. Press it gently.
--Will it help in drying the acne too?
--Definitely. Keep your hair clean and off your face. And avoid resting your hand, or your phone, on your face.
# getting a facelift
--Do you know someone who's been under the knife?
--You mean cosmetic surgery?
--Yes. I would like to know if it's safe to get a facelift.
--What are you talking about? We all know it's not safe at all. And what's wrong with your face?
--I want to go back to the way things were. These wrinkles on my face just disgust me.
--Don't be stupid. It's natural. You are just aging and there's nothing to worry about. It happens with everyone.
--Nothing to worry about?! Are you for real?
--Come on. Don't be such a drama queen!
