I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy Iíll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.

Not sure if you're being facetious or not but ^ that is overkill.  Cleanse, correct, moisturize, protect.  Masques and scrubs 1-2xweek max.  The order of application matters for absorption (molecule size).

I just recently invested in a pore scrubber......a soft bristled rotating brush. I really like it and it seems to have made my skin quite a bit softer.

I exfoliate....then use a regular facial wash with my pore scrubber...and then I moisturize....I have one special under eye moisturizer and then a regular facial moisturizer.

Once a week I give myself a mask and I'll extract blackheads.

Well, you can always be thinner... look better.

I've been using this for ~a year & a half year round.  Light enough for summer, but still works great in the dead of winter.  A little goes a long way.  Love it!  Available everywhere (like Target). 





I need a facial lotion thanks Princess

Highly recommended by dermatologists.  Not greasy or sticky at all and NO SMELL.  Check for online coupon, although not $$$ anyway.  I hope you like it.

Are you serious?  Huh

In case you are... may I suggest that you cut back on your routine somewhat? ...considerably?

If you want to cleanse your pores deeply, doing so after a facial ice pack might not be the most productive. An ice pack will close your pores, making them more difficult to cleanse. A deep pore cleanse is more effective after gentle steaming either directly or indirectly such as a hot shower. Or after exercise when your pore have opened due to sweating. Sweating is also an effective way to cleanse and flush out your pores.

Almond / walnut or other ground nut/shell/ husk exfoliating scrubs have a tendency to tear the pores, they are like micro fine shards of glass, which over time will result in permanently enlarged pores. No one wants a face that looks like a golf ball. The best scrubs to use are artificial scrubs with perfectly round beads. They do the job without tearing the pores,

I alternate between 2 brands:

Moisturizing Day Cream by Synergy Worldwide  http://www.synergyworldwide.net

24K Vitamin C Moisturizing Day Cream by OroGold Cosmetics  http://www.orogoldcosmetics.com/about
24K Deep Peeling Exfoliant by OroGold Cosmetics

I rarely use a night cream, I find them far too heavy.
