    You can check personal care products in EWG's Cosmetics Database:

    This is a great resource. They also have an annual review of sunscreens that is invaluable.

    I also like oils for cleansing and moisturizing. Plain olive oil can be used to cleanse, and coconut oil is a good moisturizer. Another good oil is jojoba. It's chemically the closest to the oil your skin naturally produces: sebum.

    I like to use witchhazel to rinse my face with (and sometimes my arms after work--I just get pimples like crazy on the backs of my arms for some reasono and washing with witch hazel helps a lot).

    since i stopped using facial cleansers, my skin has improved dramatically.

    face cloth, water, steam.

    depends on your water though.

    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
