I'm not a big believer in using an entire line of products just because you like one or two of them. I mix & match, LOL!

My favorite cleansers: Aromaleigh Lavender Mandarin cleanser & Geografx Gentle Blue cleanser (once daily)

BHA products: Paula's Choice 2% BHA solution & Skin Biology's Exfol serum (I use both daily)

AHA product: Makeup Artist's Choice 30% glycolic acid peel (once a week for 6 weeks, skip 2 weeks, then repeat)

General exfoliation: Aromaleigh's microdermabrasion cream applied with the Dermanew machine (1-2 times/week)

Moisturizer: I use a mix of jojoba oil, hazelnut oil, evening primrose oil, borage seed oil, carrot seed oil, & a few drops of essential oils (twice daily)

Other products:
DMAE/Vitamin C serum (once daily)
Skin Biology's Copper Peptide serum (once daily)
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch sunblock (daily)
Aromaleigh Free Radical Quenching Serum (to eye area, in the evening)
Renova (every other day)

I have slightly oily, slightly sensitive, acne-prone skin - and I rarely get a breakout with this routine. I am also told frequently that I don't look my age.

My favourite skin care products are Dove Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar and Olay Total Effects moisturizer w/SPF 15. I am working very hard right now to keep my routine simple! I used to use a huge array of cleansers, moisturizers, makeup removers, exfoliaters...etc. I'm a firm believer now that less is more. On top of everything, I just started Accutane recently and am still sticking to these two essential products and they're working just as great as always, which is saying something considering the side effects of Accutane. The Dove bar takes off every last bit of makeup... My skin has never felt so clean and soft! I would really recommend the Dove especially for anyone.
I am quite simple in my routine (reflections of a tight budget), but I usually fare well with washing my face at morning and night Dove soap, using very warm water (to open the pores). I like to use St. Ives Apricot Facial Scrub at night after the soap, splash cold water on my face to close the pores, then St. Ives facial moisturizer after that. I also apply this in the morning.

In the morning, after the moisturizer is mostly dry, I apply SPF 45 sunblock, usually for baby skin (as my earlier post I like to keep my skin pale, so you may not want to do that).

Sometimes I treat myself to clay masks (hey, no matter what you do, you are going to have skin problems, so I use that reason as an excuse for pampering myself :) )

Good luck with finding the routine that suits you! :bouncing:
Hello all; [ removed - please read the posting rules ]

Genetics is a big part of it all. So hopefully you were blessed with good skin genes! Seriously though~it depends on how much money you want to spend. There are good products at all prices. You can do really great with something like Aveeno or, Nuetrogena right from the drug store. Just make sure to drink lots of water, wash your face before bedtime, and use a moisturizer with an spf of 15 or higher. You can spend lots of money on the gimmics out there but, all you really need is a good cleanser, eye cream, lip moisturizer, and the moisterizer w/ spf. Good Luck!!
