Remarkable Skin-Care Regimens The Buzz from the Beauty Editor I think it's easy to go to extremes when approaching a skin-care routine, and I'm definitely guilty of this. Either I construct elaborate, impossible daily regimens involving countless products and dozens of steps, or I skip it all entirely and go to sleep with my makeup on. I've found that the answer lies somewhere in the middle. Product overload isn't healthy for your skin, your budget, or your schedule, and neglected skin looks, well, neglected. Find a simple, effective routine that you can stick with, and be consistent. Do it religiously, morning and night, and soon it will become a habit, like brushing your teeth. The following routines will help you get started. Pick one and try it exactly as prescribed, or pick just what works for you and your lifestyle. No matter what you choose, your skin will thank you for it.Manley, Nada is the author of 'Secrets of the Beauty Insiders Simple and Straightforward Top to Toe Tips for the Rest of Us', published 2006 under ISBN 9781402207815 and ISBN 1402207816.
