    main forum is useless, hopefully get some more serious answers here...

    whats your routine to keep your face looking good, and the rest of your skin?

    obviously eating well is and working out keeps you looking youthful, but what kinda products do ya'll use?

    My skin has been noticeably clear the last few months and if I had to connect it to some kind of behavior I'd say it's taking 8+ fish oil capsules per day. Ever since I started being consistent with my daily fish oil intake, my skin has been clearer.

    I also switched razors from Mach III to the Gillette Fusion and the amount of irritation I get is almost zero, whereas with the mach 3 i was getting my neck torn apart more or less.

    acne free, proactiv knockoff at target works really well. use it morning and night, and wash w/dove during the day.

    In the morning I use a foam facial cleanser with Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). After that, I apply an oil free lotion containing AHA. I also use an eye moisturizer. At night, I alternate between a sea salt body scrub and a sugar body scrub. I use the foam facial cleanser again, and then a light exfoliant that you can use daily. After I get out of the shower, I apply a mint facial masque in which I leave on for 15 minutes and use 2-3 times a week. After removing the masque, I apply oil free lotion containing AHA and then an eye moisturizer.

    try the fusion. it's magnificent! I finally don't have little red bumps all over my neck and I can touch it without pain.... I have no idea why i didn't think to try another type of razor sooner.

    i think if you just use some sort of exfoliating wash (with those beads in it) twice a week or so and use a moisturizer with spf thta should be sufficient. i think going overboard with products does nothing.

    I find soap is extremely irritating to my face, so I usually just wash my face with water and thats it.

    omega 3 in the form of fish oil. been shown to be great for skin & hair.


    my g/f says she jealous of how soft my hair and skin is (excluding my hands, she hates my calouses :o) and I don't do anything for it except use the cheap gym provided body wash & shampoo :mamoru:
