[ R U B Y K E E L E R - SCREEN ACTRESS ]
"From my viewpoint the words "pat gently into the skin" are all wrong. I like a "rub into the skin" slogan better, and that is my beauty hint. Rubbing the skin, I find, is not harmful providing the rubbing is of the constructive "upward and outward" type rather than the downward and inward motion. Patting, on the other hand, allows the skin to become too dead and flabby. The advantage of rubbing, I have found, are three-fold: you roll out dirt, peel off dry skin, and revive dying pores."
