Question How to Clean while @ work ?


I recently posted [and bought] the Stridex Face Cleaning Pads [w/Salicylic Acid] and I don't think I want to continue using them, for various reasons.

Does anyone know of something portable, that one could use to quickly clean the face during work hours?

I have my own morning/night regime, but I feel like I should do SOMETHING during the hours of 9-6pm

Thanks for any suggestions/help!

I know that Differin has portable things like that, check their website..

Also, ask your dermatologist about it because more than likley there is a prescription cleanser that's portable for people on the go

Are there any ingrediants I should specifically look out for when using a face pad during the day?

I use the clean and clear blotting sheets. I love them, they totall sop up the shine from my skin.

I also have blotter sheets, but I always wonder about their effectiveness?

Does it push dead skin cells back in, to clog pores [for oily skin]?

Should I try to find something with some type of treatment in it instead?

I work the night shift and i end up washing my face a lot, because: 1) i feel oily 2) i feel sleepy! lol

I usually rinse my face with lots of water. Since i tend to do that 3-4 time/day, i don't use any soap between washes in the morning and night, because it may just irritate your skin.

You can also use spectro gel. It's absolutely VERY mild, so it's good for day washes!!
