I don't exercise because exercise is for fatties :p j/k but I "try" to eat healthy...but sometimes I have to get my daily fix of french fries from the king...rehab is hard
Anyway, I do have a strict skincare routine though

Morning
Jan Marini Bioglycolic facial cleanser
Topix Citrix Cell Rejuvenation Serum 20% with growth factor or
Skinceuticals C E Ferulic serum
Lipomoist moisturizer
Skinceuticals UV defense SPF 45 or
Shiseido ultimate sun protection cream SPF 55 PA +++

Night
Jan Marini Bioglycolic oily skin facial cleaner
ACV toner with honey
Skinceutical Retinol maximum strength refining night cream or
Avene Diacneal
Lipomoist

Also once a week I do a peel with either Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel or Philosophy's Microdelivery peel...

Once I'm done with these I plan to replace some of the previous with
Pevonia Botanica Enzymo-Spherides peeling cream
Replenix retinol smoothing serum 10X
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 60 PDD 28 fluide extreme
Obagi nu-derm clear

Skin care:

In the morning I brush my teeth, wash my face, use a toner and a lot of moisturizer. The same thing in the evening before going to bed.

Food:

I try to eat a lot of fruit and drink at least two litres of water a day. I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Exercise:

Don't really have a routine. I exercise if I feel like it. I do walk a lot every day though.

Hair:

Wash with shampoo, then conditioner. I wash my hair every day and stay away from hair dyes and blow dryers. I try to trim my hair every eight weeks, though it does slip.

I used to use Clinique's 3 step routine, but then my facialist (she's from Europe, and VERY into "light, natural" skin care) told me I should stop. Apparently, the toner frmo Clinique uses alcohol, etc. which makes your face drier than it should be, and eventually causes you to age.

Now, this is my routine:

morning:
wash face with Sothy's Normalizing Milk
use Sothy's softening lotion (toner)
Moisturize with Sothy's Oxyliance or Comfort Cream, depending on how dry my skin is

Evening:
wash with Milk
Softening Lotion
and a night replenishing cream by Jannsen (Germany, I think).

It's worked wonders for me. I used to have lots of acne in high school, and even when that stopped, I had acne scars. It's gotten so much better recently. I think the whole idea of now using harsh chemicals on the face is really smart. It was so ahrd to switch at first, because I was used to the "tingling" sensation of Clinique's products - guess that was the alcohol- but now that I'm used to it, it's amazing!

P.S: Has anyone besides me heard of the Sothy's skin care line? I just wanted to get someone else's feedback on it.

i wash my face with water everyday..haha usually in the shower
its normal so it doesnt really get dry or oily and i dont wear much makeup, a lil mascara or lipgloss from time to time

i rarely use moisturizer but if it does get dry or i want glowy skin ill use Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture! i love it because it just makes my skin look healthier. as you can see, i try not to use too many products on a regular basis because i dont like feeling dependent on products. no makeup means less worrying about finding the right cleanser.

i shampoo with Kerastase Bain Satin 3 from the Nutritive and condition with Kerastase Lait Vital also from Nutritive line..every one to two days depending on how my hair feels. this shampoo has been absolutely amazing for my hair..i feel like it really repaired it. i started using in October because my super long color treated hair was getting a bit dry. now my hair is back to normal and not so dry so im most likely going to switch to a normal shampoo(not a moisturizing one because i dont really need it anymore) because Kerastase is so expensive!

I've heard Kerastase Bain Satin 3 is really good for dry hair, because it's a nourishing shampoo - and it's even better for roots that get oily quickly because it's so rich that you don't need to use a conditioner. Do you think that's true, kissablekae? Or do you feel the shampoo was really a big part of getting your hair back to normal?

You might want to take a look at review sites like makeupalley.com or essentialdayspa.com's forum area. There are lots of info and it might help you

I have very sensitive and dry skin prone to allergic reactions like cystic acne to most every line unless very gentle. Skin changed recently being in my 30s or I don't know what but it's very frustrating.

I have tried Chanel, YSL, La Mer, Thalgo, Laura Mercier pretty much alllll the supposed great lines and also Jurlique and Yonka etc. but I have happily found my regimen in these- (though I found I can use most Clarins or Bobbi Brown as far as readily available lines);

Morning:
Dermalogica Ultra Calming Cleanser for eyes and face
Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre(24hr Miracle Cream) -
many models and pros use this and can be used as cleanser as well as perfect primer.
Shu Uemura UV Underbase sometimes if needed.
Still looking for High SPF and effective Sunscreen.
Shu Uemura Velvet Perfect adjusting powdery foundation

Dermalogica Daily MicroExfoliant or REN exfoliator when needed.

Evening:
Shu Uemura Balancing Oil and follow with Dermlogica Ultra Calming cleanser to make sure I don't break out from oil residue. In Case*
Or, BIODERMA Crealine H2O cleanser to use without water- really great for sensitive skin to take off all make up easily and conveniently.
And then Embryolisse or Aesop Face Oil or AmorePacific Time Response Renewal Cream.
Amore Time Response Hand Lotion and eye cream is great too.

It sounds like a lot but thses are my HG items so I don't get bored with one thing and I know that they all work individually for my very picky skin.
Hope it helps someone

PS. I also use this shampoo line called N.P.P.E.
It smells amazing and works so well but very gentle.

Morning: Splash water on my face, moisturize

Night: Wash face with foaming cleanser, moisturize

It may sound gross, but I try to only shower three to four times a week to prevent my skin and scalp from completely drying out.

I have normal/combo skin (oily T-zone)... but deshydrated as hell!

Morning:
CLEANSER : Splash cool water on my face a couple of times
TONER : Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion by Clarins
MOISTURIZER : Moisture Quenching Hydra-Care Lotion by Clarins
MAKEUP : I only apply mineral makeup now, it's a life (and time!) saver

Night:
MAKEUP REMOVER : Gentle eye makeup remover by L'Oréal and Cleansing cloths by Marcelle
CLEANSER : Gentle foaming cleanser by Clarins
TONER : Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion by Clarins
MOISTURIZER : Gentle night cream by Clarins

Once a week:
EXFOLIATOR : Gentle exfoliating cream by ROC
MASK : Aspirin mask made with 6 crushed tablets and about 1 table spoon of Purifying cleansing mask by Jean D'Estrées

I'm 26 and I know I should be using an eye cream, but every single one I tried made my eyes very itchy and sensible! So I'm still looking...

First of all, after a lot of combinations, I have finally touched upon the one that really gets my skin glowing. I have a weird combination of sensitive, moisture-deprived skin, but skin that still needs regular exfoliation.

Second, I don't understand why people wash their faces in the morning and evening...the only reason you'd need to wash your face in the morning--aside from splashing water maybe to wake yourself up--would be if your pillowcase is really dirty.

Anyway, here's what I use:

Every night:
Cetaphil face cleanser
Kiehl's extra gentle eye makeup remover
Kiehl's milk, honey almond scrub (so gentle)
Kiehl's creme d'elegance repairateur (so soft and absorbs right away without oiliness)

I used to use Fresh brown sugar scrub on my face every other night and Aveeno ultra calming moisturizer nightly and it worked just as well, but the jars were so tiny I'd go through them so fast and the scrub tended to get sticky between my fingers. Anyway. That's me.

I do, however, use the Fresh brown sugar BODY scrub when I shower. Along with TiGi strawberry lemonade body wash...yummy.

And once a week--because I'm naturally very pale and live in LA--I use Estee Lauder sunless tan towelettes on my face and spray on the rest of my body. Totally natural looking and easy to apply.

As for hair, I use Bumble & Bumble's blonde color-treated shampoo & condition. I used to use Kerastase once a week, but have fell of that but it doesn't seem to be affecting my hair.

Oh, and since I'm such a Kiehl's girl, I of course use Creme with Silk Groom to tame my wavy locks.
