Q: Skin issues in Beijing

Every time I come to Beijing, my skin breaks out and I look like a teenager.  I don't know if it is from the pollution, food, both or something else entirely, any thoughts on how to get rid of it?

moisturize the skin before you go out.

For what it's worth: I'm not in China, but I work in a factory where part of my job is soldering connections in the products I make. If I don't have a vent on and catch a face-full of the smoke when I'm working, I'll have a vicious acne attack.  I'm guessing this is not unlike your reaction to the air in Beijing...

 

My way to combat breakouts is to:

 

1. Never touch my face. That just seems to make things worse. 

 

2. Carry some alcohol prep pads (the kind they use to clean your skin before an injection), and wipe my face periodically throughout the day. I normally get mine at Walmart, here in the States. Not sure where you can find them in the Middle Kingdom. Isopropyl alcohol can be pretty harsh on your skin, so if you're sensitive, it may take some getting used to... you might want to apply a light moisturizer after. (But make sure your hands are clean first!)

 

3. Wash my face as soon as I get home.  (Be careful if you use an acne wash in addition to the alcohol, it could be a bit too drying. You might need to moisturize afterward.)

 

Even if your reaction is from the change in diet, a good skin-care regimen will help keep you cleared up...  Good luck!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
