Some of the 'crap' from Walmart is really good! Adding a retinoid as a night cream and decent sunscreen to your regime would brighten up your face, fade wrinkles and deal with breakouts. If you're not prepared to see a dermatologist you can buy an over-the-counter retinoid from Avene or Skinceuticals - both of whom make formulations that rival prescription retinoids. Neutrogena Healthy Skin is another excellent option for those who have never used a retinoid before, it has...
L'oreal Solar Expertise (Matte Formula) has a nice matte finish and extremely high UVA/UVB protection, much moreso than any of the others suggested so far. It's about £7 at Boots.
Not even movie stars have 'movie star clear skin' but there are plenty of things you can do to keep your skin clear and healthy: If you're older than 25 use retinoids. Retinol is a proven anti-ageing ingredient that will thicken the inner layers of skin and plump out wrinkles and fine lines. Moisturise straight after showers on damp skin.

Neutrogena Dry Touch SPF55 probably has some of the best protection you're likely to find in the states - high protection, oil control and shouldn't break you out as long as you wash it off thoroughly. There are more suggestions here.

Retinol is a dilluted off-the-shelf substitute that may or may-not do anything. Retinol is effective but it must be converted first to retinaldehyde before absorption. There are quite a few retinaldehyde products available over the counter that are clinically proven to work well including Skinceuticals,...
-Phytessence Wakame: supposedly inhibits the action of hyaluronidase, leaving more hyaluroic acid and your skin happier. I'd pass on that one. -Hyaluroic acid: it's in your skin and keeps it looking good. Used in moisturisers it keeps your skin nice and supple as it attracts water to the skin. L'oreal Derma-genesis is an affordable line that contains high concentrations of this. -Collagen: protein in connective tissue. You can't apply this topically for any effect,...
