    What is your skin care routine throughout the day? What products and techniques do you use from the shower, to the office, to the beach, to bedtime?


    I use this as soon as I wake up to cleanse: http://www.sephora.com/antioxidant-daily-facial-cleanser-P226315


    If I remember, this sunscreen before I head out on sunny days: http://www.drugstore.com/neutrogena-ultra-sheer-dry-touch-sunblock-spf-55/qxp150735?catid=184131


    This to cleanse at night: http://www.drugstore.com/biore-blemish-fighting-ice-cleanser/qxp388178?catid=182284&aid=328279&aparam=biore_bs_ bn


    And this scrub 3 nights a week: http://www.drugstore.com/biore-pore-unclogging-scrub/qxp388180?catid=182263&aid=328279&aparam=biore_bs_ bn


    I'm in the mood to switch it up.

    My skincare "regimen" is fairly simple. I wash with plain lukewarm water, since most cleansers just leave my face dried-out and red. I use a Vaseline lotion with aloe and SPF 15 on my face. I used to use a special Neutrogena SPF 15 face moisturizer, but the Vaseline is cheaper, comes in a giant green tube, and seems to work just as well. If I'm actually going to be spending a lot of time outside, I will typically apply an SPF 35 sport sunscreen.


    Once a week or so, I use a washcloth or a large pinch of salt or sugar to exfoliate in the shower.


    Acne has always been an issue for me, but I find that most soaps and cleansers dry out my skin, which exacerbates the problem. The minimalist approach seems to work better.

    A while ago I saw a site recommended on Effortless Gent called The Motley and I decided to order some hair care products from them. In the package they included some samples for some skin care products by Baxter of California which I tried out and ended up really liking. I ended up ordering them and now do their recommended essential routine which is using a facial scrub (3-4 times a week), shaving, then using a face wash and then using some moisturizer. I've definitely noticed an improvement in my skin since I started doing this.

    I was going to ask about Baxter of California. Just stumbled upon their site from the American List and saw they were Made in the USA skin care. I'll keep them in mind.

    My current routine:


    Wash face in shower using Jack Black Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser - http://www.getjackblack.com/Products/Pure-Clean-Daily-Facial-Cleanser-with-Aloe-and-Sage-Leaf__2005O.aspx


    Shave in shower using Nancy Boy Signature Shave Cream and Gillette Fusion Proglide Power Razor - http://www.nancyboy.com/Signature-Shave-Cream-3p1.htm


    Apply Brave Soldier Code Blue after shave - http://www.bravesoldier.com/code-blue.php


    Apply Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer - http://www.getjackblack.com/Products/Double-Duty-Face-Moisturizer-SPF-20-with-Blue-Algae-Extract-and-Sea-Parsley__2003O.aspx


    I've tried a lot of products and shaving techniques (including shaving with a DE razor) and I find tha this routine works best for me. I highly recommend any of the products from Nancy Boy and Jack Black and I often switch my products between those two brands, except for the shaving cream. The Nancy Boy shaving cream is top notch and for me, it's the best that I've used (I've tried Proraso, The Art of Shaving, Taylor of Old Bond Street, Truefitt & Hill, Barc, Anthony, Jack Black and probably others than I can't think of right now). Truefitt & Hill Ultimate Comfort is also a favorite but it's so much more expensive than the Nancy Boy that I always go with the Nancy Boy one.

    @ Juan - How do you get the nancyboy products. Free shipping kicks in only after $75. I wanted to try out a couple of products (lipbalm in particular) and was wondering how you got your products.

    I dated a girl for a while who was a Clinique counter manager. She got me started on the 3-step from Clinique along with some additional moisturizers from them.


    She recommended using the women's 3 step. Apparently, its the same exact stuff as the men but a little cheaper once you factor in you get 2x a much product for a few dollars more.

    http://www.clinique.com/cms/product/franchise/3step_system_detail.tmpl?slide=2


    For shaving I use three products.

    1. Clinique face scrub (http://www.clinique.com/product/1624...rub/index.tmpl)

    2. The cream shave gel

    http://www.clinique.com/product/1624...ave/index.tmpl

    3. The Post shave healer

    http://www.clinique.com/product/1624/6251/Mens/Shave/All_Mens_Shave/Post-Shave-Healer/index.tmpl


    While Clinique is certainly not the most manly or trendy brand out there, I've had great results. About 1 month after using all the products, I started getting multiple comments from female friends, co-workers, my sisters etc about how good my skin looked.


    I have an olive skin tone and I am prone to darkness around my eyes and cheeks, and Clinique has improved both area substantially. In addition, I run a lot (about 100-110 miles a week) and as a result my skin in prone to dryness. I have tried multiple moisturizers and the Clinique brand is the only one that takes care of this problem.

    @red devil - I order through their website. If you are in San Francisco, then you can stop by their store but otherwise, you have to order online. They have travel sizes in a lot of their products, which makes it easier to sample. They also have the Club, which is free to join, and that gets you 15% off.

    I use this one every morning and some nights:

    http://www.queenhelene.com/skincare_product_detail.php?id=45


    Usually 1-2 times a month I go with this:

    http://www.queenhelene.com/skincare_product_detail.php?id=48


    I get them at our local Dollar General store, both are about $3.00 a bottle.


    Great stuff, my mother-in-law turned me on to it.


    I have tried other brands, 3 step cleansing products, etc, this is the best for me.


    Usually I keep a close beard, and these really help to keep my skin clean and fresh underneath as well as soften my facial hair for trims and neck shaving.

    I have really complcated skin so I opt for a more delicate and organic formulation like Dr. Hauschka which I buy here: http://www.absoluteskin.com.au/Dr-Ha...ucts-s/295.htm

    They have a skincare kit already packed so I just follow it and that's that. It has worked for me so far
    Don't be afraid of dressing up...please.
