    Retin-A. It is Rx and the only thing proven to diminish wrinkles and promote new cell growth. I swear by it.
    I worship individuals for their highest possibilities as individuals, and I loathe humanity, for its failures to live up to these possibilities.

    I have used that for my acne. Unfortunately, I believe I'm allergic to it, because it caused my face to become REALLY itchy and little hives began to form.

    Arbonne has a wonderful skincare line. I actually like it, but it can be pricey.

    It's a prescription medication.



    http://www.yourplasticsurgeryguide.c...ng/retin-a.htm

    Retin-A is typically prescribed for the following reasons:

    * Acne: Retin-A brings acne plugs (blockages) to the surface causing blackheads to be dislocated. The blackheads are then discarded from the skin during cleansing. Retin-A can help control acne breakouts as well.
    * Hyperpigmentation: The ingredients in Retin-A can help sun-damaged skin, including age discoloration spots and light freckling.
    * Poor Skin Texture: The increased exfoliation process from Retin-A removes dead cells and stimulates new skin cells to improve the texture of the skin.
    * Preparation for Other Procedures: Retin-A is commonly used to prepare the skin for procedures such as laser skin resurfacing and facial surgeries. The medication may be continued after a procedure to assist in recovery as well.

    Ok so I'm not over 35.. but I've gone the whole all natural method. using the Oil cleansing way. and I use olive oil as moisturizer ( it works great. I have really good skin ( thanks mom ) so I don't have a lot of wrinkles or anything like that.
    before that I was using neutrogena face wash and Biore's skin preservation line.

    My mom uses principle secret ( from victoria principle) and she really likes it.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    I'm over 35 and I also go all natural. My routine is kind of acne preventative and also because my skin is oily as the bottom of a bucket of KFC. (Kentucky Fried Chicken) I use charcoal soap to absorb oil and clear impurities. And I use tea tree oil as a cleanser and a light natural lotion. Every now and again I do proactiv. Once a week or so I will do a clay mask. Most of my products are from LUSH.com.

    I don't have many wrinkles although I can see that some will form on my forehead and I will have those laugh lines around my nose. I kinda just accept them.

    I don't know if that was helpful. I have a friend who swears by Clinique products including night cream and eye repair. I am a minimalist and would never remember to do eye cream and other speciality things.
