    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Top Skin Care Tips - Tip #2

    What Products Should I Use on My Skin?

    Almost any product will improve the condition of your skin. With the exception of acne, most bad skin conditions are the result of neglect. Too much sun, wind, water without doing any repair will leave skin rough, dry, dull, red, irritated, and feeling tight. Simply paying attention to what your skin needs will result in a clear improvement.

    Rather than paying attention to the ads on television and in magazines, try products for yourself. Not every product works the same way on every person, so take advantage of those free samples. When you find one that feels really good, stick with it and use it as directed.

    Some of these product lines suggest that you use a cleanser, toner, eye cream, daytime face cream, and nighttime face cream. If you find a product that works well with your skin, the companion products will likely work well for you too because they are made from similar base products. If you need eye cream, use it. If you're pretty young, you can get away without it.

    Remember, anything that you use on a daily basis is going to do more good for you than something that you will resist using.
