What do you do every day to keep your skin looking amazing?
I have been using garnier products (the 3-in-1 cleaner/scrub, and the renew moisturizer) and have broken out severely. I want to have an updated, skincare routine, but have no idea what to get.
What do you do?

I have stopped washing my face with soap/cleanser. I know it sounds gross but it just dries out your skin and is really not necessary (unless you’ve been cleaning a chimney:) I use a mild scrub in the shower and then old-fashioned Pond’s Cold Cream at night to remove makeup. I use Oil of Olay spf 15 for day and a night cream (any kind) before bed. Oh, and I always use a serum before moisturizing.
As far as break-outs go, the only thing that has ever worked is a really low dose of doxycycline (an oral antibiotic). I swear my face looks fab and I never get zits anymore. But topical stuff, no matter how expensive has always been a fail for me.

@missmuggins: you are pretty young still, so IDK about the cold cream unless you have dry skin.
I use a soap-free cleanser (Purpose by Johnson & Johnson) and use it with just my hands when I’m in the shower and use a washcloth at the sink in the morning. I notice a big difference when I don’t wash in the shower, so I think that it really helps to have my pores open. I never use scrubs because they always break me out or irritate my skin.
For moisture I really don’t like to use a product if I don’t have to, because my skin is super sensitive. If I get dry areas I use clinique’s gel formula.
For sunprotection, I again have problems finding products. I have neutrogena’s SPF 110 with UVA and UVB protection that I wear if I know I’m going to be in the sun most of the day (on the lake, for instance), but for things like walking the dog I use a big floppy hat.

@PutABirdOnIt:Yay! I use cold cream as well, because I do have very dry skin. =]
