Dry Skin Tips from Madame Sylvia

Madame Sylvia's Dry Skin and Face Tips


  1. Remove all foreign matter very thoroughly from the surface of the skin.
  2. Take a piece of absorbent cotton and apply a mild face wash to the skin, instead of soap and water
  3. Wipe away the face wash with a soft cloth
  4. Follow steps 1 - 3 with a feeding cream (I imagine this must be cold cream).  Pat the cream gently all over the face - do not rub it in!  Pat the cream on your face until you feel the tingle of blood rising to the surface
  5. Leave the cream on for at least one half hour.  
My personal favorite insight from Madame Sylvia:  "If you have a husband or better reason for wanting to be presentable at a late hour, remove as much cream as you wish."

  1. In the morning, take your face wash, lave the face thoroughly and dry with a soft towel.
  2. You should have a good astringent lotion.  Pat it gently and use it as your powder base.


*Those with dry skin should have a weekly facial massage to stimulate the skin glands.
