    Default This humidity is killing me : stinky moist face

    This humidity is killing me. I am cleaning his face twice a day with witch hazel and using corn starch to dry. I started this regimen after noticing some stinky face. It seems to be working. In the winter I only cleaned once a day with witch hazel. Any other tips or tricks for keeping the face and wrinkles dry in the summer?

    My Jewelie girl has got a Grand Canyon of a nose rope. I am using Duoxo wipes on a daily sometimes twice daily for her. Bentley fairs much better and I only have to clean him up daily.

    Hi Kim. I get them delivered from chewy.com. I think the 30 count of pads is just under $10. They also have a spray but I do not recall the price. I would use my wife's make-up remover pads with any of the sprays such as Vetericyn. I hope this helps

    You can make your own Duoxo pads. Buy a gallon of chlorohexidene online and get some cotton makeup rounds. Get a container you can seal a fill it with the makeup rounds. Dilute the chlorohexidene to the strength you want and pour it over the pads and seal. When you run out just make some more. It is a lot cheaper than constantly buying the premade pads as did this 2 years ago and still have about a quarter gallon left. Just remember to keep the chlorohexidene jug in a dark place and it should last a year or two.

    Where do you buy yours? I have been looking but they all seem to have dyes in them. Is there somewhere I can buy it without added ingredients or minimal ingredients?

    Amazon. Never had any issues with the green or blue. They have one that is clear but it is a small bottle.
