I don't although I probably should. I use different face cleansers, looking for just the right one. The one I'm trying currently is made by Bio-Elements, and so far, so good, we'll see. What is your routine?

First, select a cleansing regime for your particular skin type and skin problem. SkinCareWorldWide.com has products for acne, normal skin, oily skin, and sensitive skin. Avoid bar soap. Obagi and Neostrata have cleansers particularly recommended by SkinCareWorldWide.com. Second, select an exfoliant to unroof the stratum corneum (glycolic, lactic acid, and salicylic acid). An exfoliant is particularly useful in unroofing white heads and blacks (comedones) in acne. Start with the lower strength preparations first 2.5%-5%. Higher strengths may be irritating. A gel is usually more drying and stronger than a lotion or a cream. Third, Than use a moisturizer formulated for the face and eyelids. Note, people with acne or oily skin may not need a moisturizer. Fourth, photoprotect your skin from the suns damaging UVA and UVB rays with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Vitamin C Creams also have photoprotecting ability. All products should be used as directed on the product container. Any product that causes irritation should be discontinued.

Well I say NO, but I have used the same day/night moisturizer for 15 yrs. It's made by Avon and it's called Nutura Replenishing Cream and I've tried most of the over the counter ones and this one is by far the best. If you watch for the sales in the Avon catalog or online it goes on sale frequently for $4.50-6.00 a jar. I love it. Other than that it's St. Ivy face cleanser in the shower to get the make-up off from the day before and then out and mositurize put on make up and off I go.
