I went from using a salicylic wash, astringent, and benzyl peroxide cream everyday to one simple cleanser and a Clarisonic. It took a month or so before I really started seeing any results, but finally - they came.
Now as for make-up, I have used Jane Iredale's pressed powder foundation for 10 years. Anytime I have tried another make-up, and trust me I have (I sold Clinique & Estee Lauder for four years), my face has broken-out terribly. So I just stick with Jane these days when it comes to anything that goes on my skin - blush and bronzers included.
In all, I've tried to keep my routine simple - Here are the products I like to keep in my cabinet:
1. Clarisonic 2. Dr. Perricone MD Citrus Facial Wash 3. Caudlie Cleansing Water 4. REN Radiance Renewal Mask 5. Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream 6. REN Clear & Clam Night Serum 7. Clinique Acne Solutions Spot Healing Gel 8. Super by Dr. Nicholas Perricone Hyper Hydrator 9. Jane Iredale Prue Pressed Mineral Foundation
