  • I use a sunscreen everyday, and use an exfoliant 2x a week. It makes a huge difference! I like the st. ives apricot one. Not too gritty but still noticable. Eat lots of blueberries, mangoes, veggies, take a multi vitamin, drink lots of water!

  • I am not quite 30 but I use the Mary Kay Time Wise Collection. A also use their Microderm Abrasion set 2-3 times a week. It has been amazing for my skin!! I stopped using it for a few weeks when I was out ad sure enough I totally broke out again. They have products specifically for Acne but I have found that just using the whole line with abrasion set has done the trick.

  • I love the st. ives apricot scrub. been using it forever! It's for oily skin, cleans and exfoliates the pores without overdrying.

  • eat well. you are what you eat. cut back on red meats and dairy.drink plenty of water. get good oils into your diet, like avocado, fish and olive oil. you can supplement with fish oil and/ or udo's oil. cut back on sugars and processed foods. eat lots of fresh veggies. a great goal is 1/2 of your foods being vegetables.
    know the ingredients of everything that you put on your skin. you can go here http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/ for great information.

  • I use Arbonne International Anti-aging skin care system! It last 6-9 months and is safe for your skin. So many skin care products out there have mineral oil and animal by products in them! Dr. OZ talked about it one day on his show!! HUGE fan of arbonne!

  • I used the Neutrogena Advanced Solutions skin care regimen for acne and it worked great. I never really had skin care issues before my 30s either. It is drying but I used an Olay moisturizer with it at night and it took care of the dryness.
