I will avoid staying at hotels next to airports from now on!

It may simply be coincidence, but there may be something more sinister at play.

About 3 weeks ago, I ran out of facial cleanser, so I bought some. That weekend I stayed at the Marriott Courtyard right next to La Guardia. When I checked out, my facial cleanser did not.

I replaced the facial cleanser. This weekend I stayed at the Embassy Suites adjacent to the Portland International Jetport. Once again, the facial cleanser stayed behind.

The big test is this weekend and the following. I have acquired new facial cleanser. This weekend I am staying at the Holiday Inn at Reliant Park in Houston -- nowhere near an airport! And the following weekend I will be staying one night at the Two Trees Inn at Foxwoods and the following night at Mohegan Sun -- again, no airport! If I still have facial cleanser after these next two weekends, we know that it is the combination of hotel and airport that proves deadly to my face's radiant cleanliness.

Or, maybe it's just coincidence.

When you say 'facial cleanser,' I assume you mean something more upscale than either soap or detergent. If so, why carry it on trips? Delia or Cathy should be able to supply you with enough samples to take care of your needs.

Soap or detergent??? Ack! No, soap dries out the face.

I use a specific facial cleanser by Neutrogena (or occasionally a different one by Aveeno) that cleans the pores deeply but is gentle on and moisturizes the skin. I also use an exfoliating scrub every few days. That is then followed up by a face moisturizing cream with SPF 15 by Neutrogena. I also have one of those creams you dab on under the eyes to reduce fine wrinkles and give the face a more vibrant look.

Okay, scrubs are basically different from either soaps or detergents. I once had my hands on a book that had recipes for basic scrubs you could make for yourself from ingredients like oatmeal (Aveeno), dried apricots or fresh cucumbers. I sometimes regret letting that book get away from me.

As for the moisturizing cream, mine comes from Aveeno or is a TJ clone (one upstairs, one down). That's Trader Joe, by the way, not Tijuana.
