I’ve started hot cloth cleansing.  Slather on cleanser (you can get specifically designed ones or use you favourite) then removed with a damp flannel (submerge in as hot water as you can stand) by using circular movements to give an exfoliation type effect.

Then I skip toner in favour of a hydrating serum (I don’t do it all the time because I don’t need to but they say should).  Then moisurise.

I don’t moisturise my body everyday.  No idea if you’re supposed to or not.

Every morning I use a scrub and a face wash in the shower, then cleanse, tone and moisturise my skin both morning and night. I don’t really wear ‘skin’ makeup so I try and keep my skin as healthy as possible

Oh, and I moisturise my whole body every day I workout (4-5 days a week)

I cleanse, tone and moisturse every morning and night.  At night I also use eye makeup remover and then eyecream before my face moisturiser.

I probably should moisturise my whole body more often.   At the moment its  prob twice a week or so.

I always put hand cream on every day in the morning and at night and at least once during the day.

I need to be more consistent about it, but I use a gentle facewash in the morning, followed by sunblock lotion, and at night I use an exfoliating facewash and moisturizer. I do an avocado/oatmeal mask about once a month.

I moisturize my arms and legs if I’m wearing clothes that will show them, lol. And I always moisturize my legs after shaving them.

Another cleanse, tone and moisture bee here! I use an exfoliating cleanser every 2 or 3 days as I find it’s too drying to use every day. Im also a super impatient person so I tend to skip the body moisturiser because it takes way too long… I also try to use some kind of face mask (either cucumber or mud) to soothe my skin every month

I clense, tone and apply cream every morning and night. i sometimes use under eye cream aswell but deep down a part of me knows it’s the same as face cream…. I exfoliate at least once a week (Face + Body). Most importantly, I wear suscreen (fps 60) all the time in the summer and stay out of the sun! 

I don’t moisturize my entire body enough.. arms and legs every few days, I really want to get in the habit of moiturizing everytime I shower…

I cleanse and tone my face every morning before I put on my makeup and am SOOO bad about washing it off (but have been getting better lately). I have oily skin, so I don’t use moisturizer as it always leads to a breakout. I usually do a mask and exfoliant scrub once a week (different days) and put cream on my entire body once a week or when I remember to. I use herbal cleansers and toners through Burts Bees and I find that it is much gentler on my skin than other brands I have used in the past.

I think it really depends what your skin is like. I have super sensitive skin, so toner just dries it out, and exfoliant can be really irritating. I use Cetaphil extra gentle to wash my face morning and night, and then I put on LaRoche Posay moisturizer and Clinique eye cream. The eye cream is much thicker and more moisturizing than my face lotion and I’ve really noticed a difference. I’ve been doing this for a few years and it’s changed my skin. I used to think I had to use harsher soaps, like ones with acne-fighting ingredients. Then I finally went to the dermatologist and she was like, “You’re doing too much, just wash, moisturize, and leave it alone!” haha

I exfoliate frequently and drink a lot of water. I have two moisturizers from clinique the dramatically different lotion and the gel so when my skins really dry like in the winter I use the lotion and I use the gel when i want something lighter, when I’m super oily/sweaty (hurray humid summers)  I don’t use moisturizer it just gets icky. They’re $15 each for the smaller tubes which last a looooong time for me, 6 months to a year.

 I might try a toner but most I’ve tried so far make me break out, I also don’t wear make-up regularly which has helped a lot, just a shiney tinted lip balm (nivea strawberry, super cheap and awesome) and mascara when I want the look.

I use a moisturizing body wash all the time and a super srcratchy brush and use lotion on my body really only when my skin is dry, I’m kind of lazy, but I get tons of comments on how my skin is like silk o.O it’s nice to get compliments but sometimes it’s a little um, thank you but why are you touching me?

Being up on my vitamins helps too.

I’m 26 1/2, most people think I’m 19-20, guess it’s working ok? I get occational pimples but not too often.

I cleanse and moisturize.  I dont use toner because i have combo skin.  I have frequent breakouts so I use Clean & Clear Advantage Cream Cleanser and the mositurizer.  I also use Loreal eye cream.  When I choose to use makeup I always remove it with garnier wet cloths. 

In college, I worked as a beauty advisor so I tried everything imaginable, clean and clear always works for me.  I recently bought a travel guy of hope in a jar to try it out.  I could definitely feel an improvement in my skins texture within a week, the large jar is rather pricey tho.  =(

For my body I do bimonthly treatments with Ahava Mud.  One packet is $15 and lasts me 2 uses.

I use a natural, vegan face wash/gentle scrub in the morning and night, followed by a gentle toner and a light face cream. I moisturize my body at least once a day, if not twice, and also use hand cream throughout the day for any of my rough areas (elbows/knees). I use a pretty heavy body cream – Nivea Body Milk – but it works amazingly! I have baby skin.

I also use a makeup remover every day when I get home from work so that my skin gets to breathe.

I get my face wet with warm water, then massage benzoyl peroxide cleansing milk into my skin, and remove it with a wet wash cloth for exfoliation (and use a scrub twice a week). I have dry/acne skin, so I don’t use a toner or anything, just Bare Minerals skin rev-ver upper and a moisturizing cream (and an SPF moisturizer in the morning). I also use eye cream. I also put lotion on my body after every shower.
