  • I wash with a gentle wash, exfoliate with a fruit enzyme exfoliator, 3 times a week i use a volcanic ash mud mask & I moisturize daily.

    3 times a week, i also use an enzyme mask that does not have exfoliating beads. It's a gel that sits on your face for 5 minutes, it burns for a second, then cools (my skin is real sensitive)... my face glows afterward.

    I like Alba products. They are natural & not too expensive.

  • I don't use anything but some apricot face scrub and drink a TON of water, and my skin looks pretty healthy.

  • I use a gentle cleanser and sometimes do a baking soda scrub on my face. Lately I've been breaking out so I've been using a BHA exfoliant.

  • Less is more; don't do too much.

    I use a gentle, chemical/toxin-free cream cleanser (none of the commercial brands and, btw, Alba is not completely natural) or jojoba oil to wash my face, and 100% argan oil as my moisturizer. If I feel the need to exfoliate, I simply mix some baking soda with my cleanser and use that. Strong enough to work but gentle enough to not tear my skin apart. I don't use sunscreen because I'm allergic to the chemicals (break out in awful hives) so I just cover up while in the sun.

  • Always moisturize ~

  • If you do not have the Clarisonic cleansing brush, it's a must have! It cleanses your skin 6 x better than fingers alone. Always ensure if you wear makeup, cleanser your face 2 x in the evening, one removes makeup the other cleanses the skin. Use an appropriate toner/softener, moisturizer, eye cream and always use SPF. Exfoliate 2 x week. You can also use a serum underneath your moisturizer - a great one is the Prevage (it's not inexpensive $155 but worth it). If you have any questions on products, I am a personal shopper for Nordstrom cosmetics.

  • Basically I wash my face once to twice a day. I wash off my make up and wash & be done! I don't use anything special.
