    • jojo says

      Use a camouflage makeup …there are so many available. I would suggest Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse ..just pat it on lightly..don’t try to rub it in…use your little finger to has less pressure than your index fingure.

  16. jojo says

    Sorry, but spelling is so bad..!! Your do not have ‘pours’ on your skin, you have ‘pores’. I use glycerine on many parts of my body..There is absolutely NO NEED to mix with vaseline. The good thing about Glycerine is that it does not leave grease marks on your clothes or your bed linen ..and that is why l LOVE it. If you start to mix with vaseline you will get this problem. Just use the liquid glycerine from the need for vaseline. Great for dry skin and for feet and for face. Do it overnight.
