Deb's Thoughts on Caring for Your Face
There are many skin care products that make claimsto be ani-aging, or they will heal troubled skin, and some my actually work.  Do we do the research to see if they are what they claim to be, or if they are truly safe?  They might be, but are you sure?

Debra Gray

  This is me on my “soap” box!  I have never been convinced that hand sanitizers are a good idea.  There is nothing natural or cleansing about them.  Plus when killing any bacteria, the good go with the bad thus no protection from anymore bad.  What about the viruses?  They do not work on viruses, just bacteria, but now there is nothing good to fight them!
