    Get done Microderm Peel once every two months to get rid of the dead skin. But a good SPF on regular basis.

    Wash with a good facial cleanser that does not dry your skin. always apply moisturizer after the shower and if you're going to be out in the sun use spf. Use anti-aging treatment such as retinol, retin-a, La Mer, La Prarie, if you need it.

    I'm using a new anti-age serum from Lancome called Genifique and I highly recomend it.

    If you use tanning beds cover your face.

    Exfoliate at least once a week. You can use an abrasive face cleanser for this, and/or you can use a face cleanser that has glycolic acid.

    Thus far, soap and water have been my best friends.


    I've used moisturizer before but its made my face far too oily... so I don't really use it much anymore.

    I think it's also important to have a rotation of products so that your skin doesn't get too reliant to any one thing. I've just started with the Nivea for Men line. They've got the cure for what ails ya! I love their Q10 eye cream. Oh and start earlier than you think you should.

    This is what I do:

    -I cleanse my face twice a day everyday (day and night) Two times each session.
    The first time is to remove the oils from my face. The second time will dig deeper and remove the dirt in my pores.

    - A Toner is not necessary unless I wear makeup. Plus you can make your own toner at home(It's watered down rubbing alcohol or which hazel depending on your skin sensitivity). If I do wear makeup(foundation) Then I'll use a toner if the cleanser didn't get the rest of the makeup off.

    -Twice a week I will use an exfoliator. I like to use the sand scrubbing over the liquid peel exfoliator. I don't know why, I just like the feeling of the sandiness lol.
    Note: Be careful when you use the sand type of exfoliator,because some cosmetic companies don't really properly cut the Beads right,Which will cause the beads to have jagged edges and will leave little cuts in your face(not good). Also don't get crazy when you exfoliate. You're trying to remove dead skin and not your face.icon_wink.gif

    -Once a month I might do a mask,but I usually don't

    -After I've done What I had to do. I moisturize my face with a Spf lotion.

    Moisturizer, SPF protection and drink plenty of water. My dermatologist told me they are the 3 most important things to remember.

    I don't use any face care products.

    Sometimes I wash my face with my sis or brother's face wash.

    But that's just for fun.

    But, I don't smoke, I don't drink (alcohol), I eat healthy, drink healthy (lots of water and fruit/vegetable juices)

    But hey I am still 23, I never had skin problems. But I hope I have my parents good genes. My dad is 67 and looks 45. My mom 60 and looks honestly 35. She simply doesn't have a wrinkle on her face. And it is soooooooo extremely soft. The only product she uses is nivea face cream.

    See a dermatologist. . . they have the best stuff icon_smile.gif Everything else is just mediocre lol.

    I take Solodyn once a day, and at night I use 6% Benzoyl Peroxide (Triaz) to wash my face and then use Retina-A Micro 0.1% afterward. If my skin is dry I either switch between EpiCeram if it's really dry or just CeraVe. If I'm in a hurry for whatever reason, I'll use Acanya.

    Most people just need Retin-A either regular or micro and it will make your face really awesome.

    Drink lots of water. Wash your face. Moisturize at night, sunscreen during the day. Don't shave too often.

    I have an uneven skin tone,so I like to wear some foundation to even it out so I don't look all blotchy. You can't even tell I have it on either.icon_biggrin.gif

    I find that exercise, water, and sleep are the best... plus Zirh skin-care products... which I always find on clearance tables at Marshall's and TJ Maxx for $3-$4, instead of 7 or 8 times that much.

    I've been washing my face with Neutrogena's Skin ID cream cleanser (#7), then applying an Erythromycin topical solution (2%) and Clindamycin Phosphate top. gel, and finally finishing it off w/ Nivea (for men) lotion. It had worked really well against my acne but as of lately, about 3 wks so far, my face has been slightly breaking out.

    I see that there are quite a few Retin-A users on here so that has definitely encouraged me to set up an appt next week, to possibly get a prescription.
