    Following the success of the other thread on white teeth I was wondering how exactly one gets very clear facial skin. This thread is not meant to compare different products (although you can mention ones that work well) but more of the whole process.

    I know exfoliation and cleansing creams are a basic start but rarely do they solve the problem completely. Are there any foods one should avoid? I know excess salt results in puffiness and bags under your eyes.

    So any advice here is appreciated.

    I just kinda have it. I wash my face with water only daily, maybe with soap when I shower two or three times per week and any folicle issues or whatever I just cover up with concealer (yes).

    I thought it had to do with gene's or something, ether you have it or you don't. Unless you wear make up.

    If all else fails, go to a good dermatologist.

    This.

    Find some shots of movie stars without makeup/airbrushing...you might be surprised to see that many of them have the same issues as everyone else.

    What's a good dermatologist do that a bad dematologist wouldn't also do? They all prescribe a few basics, tell you to keep your face clean, and stress staying out of the sun.

    This one. If you have a bad skin because of your genes then it would be hard to overcome it unless you really have a good dermatologist. Try searching acne.org if you have more questions about skin. A lot of members there are knowledgeable about it and others even share their own experience and remedies.

    Is that a joke?

    I wash my face whenever I take a shower with whatever face wash I am trying.
    Probably once every two weeks or so I go through some 6 step Arbonne process (I got for free) but once that runs out Ill get a wash, exfoliant, moisturizer, and something for around my eyes.
