  • I use the store brand of Olay cleanser with microbeads and moisturizer. They work well, are cheap, and about as easy as it gets. The last time I got Dollar General's brand, the time before that, Equate. I don't see a difference between them and Olay.

  • Face Wash = It's this orange stuff, I think made by Clean & Clear? It's got little exfoliating beads in it too.

    Face Lotion = Olay. You can buy a 2 pack from Sam's.

  • I recommend Clinique -- they have tons of great stuff. But, if you go to a Clinique counter in a department store they willt ake all the confusion out of it for you. Tell them what type of skin you have and they will help you find the perfect products for your skin type. I love them!

  • Here is how my teen handles her acne: wash your face twice a day with a very mild soap (like unscented baby soap) and a soft wash cloth; follow with a light, oil free moisturizer (she uses Lush). Once a day, before you wash your face, put on a honey mask (just honey, a great anti-bacterial). Every three days add a pinch of baking soda to the honey to exfoliate. Check back with me in two weeks and tell me how this worked.

    Before buying or selling any body care products, it is important to check the safety of the ingredients. I like the Skin Deep database maintained by the Environmental Working Group (the folks who publish the guide to pesticides in produce).
    Avon and Mary Kay, among others, make a big public show of their support of breast cancer research and victims, yet refuse to stop using cancer causing ingredients in their products.
