THE MOST IMPORTANT thing you can use on your face is a face sponge.. When I was a kid, my mum let me knwo this, she is 50 and her skin is better than mine really! Anyway she uses loofah, I use a plastic body scrubber, it sory of looks like the one you use on dishes.. but it's for the body, I use it on my face and have no black heads e.t.c. very smooth and shiny skin. I love it.. it's my secret if you will.
