What is Murad? That seems to be popular.

The best thing I’ve found is just to drink tons of water. I know everyone else has already suggested it, but it’s the only thing that I’ve found that keeps my skin even and keeps me from breaking out. I can definitely tell a difference between when I do drink water and when I don’t. The other thing that I find useful in the heat is to keep blotting sheets on hand – my skin always breaks out if it gets oily and clogged and mopping it all up before it gets a chance to settle in my pores seems to help.

i’m not doing much different from what i usually do:

wash my face 2x a day, moisturiser, not go to sleep w/ makeup on, drinking water. i go to facials 1x a month when my schedule allows. otherwise i try to either do a moisturising mask or exfoliate 1x a week (if i remember and/or have the time)

Getting monthly facials – also odd that they won’t do extractions…I go to one of the nicest spa’s in Boston and they definitely do extractions.  Those are totally needed!

I recently switched from drug store face products to spa face products – mix of Caritas and Phytomer (daily face wash, daily moisturizer, and weekly exfoliant mask.)  It wasn’t cheap, but I am hoping to see the difference soon.

I’m not sure if you can get it in the States but I use Genuine Health products called “perfect Skin” which are capsules you take everyday and Healthy Skin with Greens+ that is a superfood supplement you add to water and drink on a daily basis. Healthy Skin also comes in chocolate chews format if you don’t like the powder kind.

My regime is a mixture of Dermalogica face wash – I use a creamy cleasner mixed with the Daily microexfoliant, which is great, followed by Elemis pro-collagen cream – my skin tone has REALLY become even — I used to be very splotchy in the cheeks. Also, I get a facial every 6-8 weeks, which definitely helps.

@ bruschetta  As soon as I started taking off my makeup FIRST, I started to notice a huge difference in the texture of my skin!  It totally floored me.  Maybe everybody else has learned this by now but I hadn’t 🙂 

 

I drink a lot of water, and in the past year switched all my facial products to more gentle versions.  Plus I started buying and wearing nicer makeup.  For me the biggest thing was switching to more basic, natural, simple products.

I wouldn’t try a totally new regimen this soon — you could have a bad reaction and that would be heartbreaking. Maybe consult a dermatologist about your concerns and the timetable you’re dealing with?

this might sound silly, but what do you take your makeup off with before washing?  i usually just wash my face with water and then when my face is wet apply my dermologica face wash, but if ‘removing’ makeup first helps, i’ll gladly do it! 🙂

I just started the Murad Acne Complex yesterday!  I’m very excited to see if it helps to clear up my skin.

Drinking lots of water, eating lots of greens and unprocessed foods in general, and using unrefined shea butter on my skin.

Oh, and I forgot to include… using the Clarisonic!  It keeps my skin soft and smooth.
