For all different skin types I am a cetaphil believer.  I use the moisturizing lotion in the morning (the one for sensitive skin) and I use the cream at night for a bit more moisture.  I also use the cream on my legs and arms too since those can get very dry.

I am a firm believer in sunscreen 365 days a year not only to prevent aging but to prevent skin cancer.  I currently use Eurcerin’s Sensitive Skin Everyday Protection Face Lotion with a UVA + UVB protection at SPF 30 ($10ish).  Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your neck and décolletage.   I use a couple of different moisturizers, when my skin is feeling dry and tight, I use Eucerin Redness Relief ($12ish) or unrefined shea butter.  I purchase mine from Coastal Scents (http://www.coastalscents.com/cfwebstore/index.cfm/product/23_105/unrefined-african-shea-butter.cfm)  it’s a wonderful product, a little goes a long way (1 lb at $8.50)!  I have acne scars and have found it helpful in reducing redness.  I use it on my face and body.  I take a little bit of shea butter (pea size), warm it up between my hands until it’s transparent and gently pat the product on my face, neck, and décolletage while avoiding the eye area.

I don’t have any wrinkles around my eye area yet but I use Olay’s revitalizing eye gel ($10) as a preventative measure.  It might be a little too light for some.  ROC also makes amazing eye creams.

I also use little round sponge disks like these: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P0402&categoryId=B70  to wash my face at night to ensure I remove all traces of dirt before applying moisturizing products.

Manuka honey with UMF has natural antibacterial properties and I have found it helpful to use it as a facial mask to combat acne.  I usually buy Comvita brand manuka honey.  I spread a small spoonful of honey on my face and let it soak in for about half an hour before rinsing. 

As always, drink tons of water throughout the day and eat well balanced meals.
