You're lucky and should appreciate that. For all others, we need to attack our skin constantly with tons of chemicals and anti-everything creams.

I use a sulfur soap in the shower on my face sometimes to dry out the acne as much as possible and I wash my face at night with this facial cleansing thing that exfoliates and then further dries out the acne. After it's done it's thing, I put a moisturizing lotion on and then when I wake up I also have to put the moisturizing lotion on.

Along with countless trips to the spa to get different facial things performed because my face is so prone to acne and ugly skin problems. Half my income probably goes to my face.

I spent my teens and 20s with super clear skin, and now in my 30s I get breakouts! So unfair!

Here's mine.

Morning:
Wash face with Johnson's baby wash
Put on MakeupArtist's Choice vitamin k eye cream
Put on Green Cream Level 9 Retinol cream.
Put on Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer
Put on Eucerin Daily Moisturizing face lotion SPF 30 on neck, chest and arms. None on face as it gives me a pale cast and my BB cream has SPF 42 anyway.

Night:
Wash face with Johnson's baby wash
(Occasionally do a honey face mask or clay mask 2-3 times a week for half an hour)
Put on MakeupArtist's Choice vitamin k eye cream
Put on Mario Badescu vitamin c serum
Put on Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer
Put on Neutrogena Anti wrinkle cream with retinol on neck, chest and arms to treat neck rings and sun damage.
Put on my humidifier on high next to my bed for the night when I'm not too lazy.

Weekly: alternate between lactic acid and mandelic acid peel

My skin used to be extremely dry, sun damaged and oil prone before despite drinking lots of water, eating mostly vegetarian, not wearing makeup to bed, the usuals. It's much more smoother, dewy and glowier looking now with the current routine despite of sun damage on my forehead. As you guys can see, I don't use a toner. Should I use one? I used to use witch hazel occasionally before due to acne issues which is nonexistent now.

wowwwwwwwwwwwwwww

I use some off brand of facial cleanser, then some off brand of moisturizer with sunscreen when I remember to put it on.

I had HORRIBLE acne as a teenager and I think I used every sort of cleanser, toner, lotion etc. on my face along with cover up daily. When I was in my early 20s I just stopped. By my mid 20s my face completely cleared up, and while I get the occasional pimple here and there, my skin is surprisingly clear. I don't think I've used concealer or any type of powder/cover-up in at least 3 or 4 years.

I probably don't take good enough care of my skin...but I do stay out of the sun and wear sunscreen so I suppose that's alright for now.
