i want to know if my face washing routine is excessive or not...like i said, geared more toward the ladeez

first off i scrub my hands with a nail brush in hot water before even touching my face...
i then put a hot face cloth on my face repeatedly for a couple minutes
then a take a cleanser :depending on morning or night, morning is a regular cleanser, the other has microbeads in it: and rub it on thoroughly, then take a nail brush and gently scrub my face for about a minute or two
i rinse my face with hot water, using a washcloth
i then take a cotton ball with a toner on it, "rinsing" my face with it, i do this twice or more with a different cotton ball each time
i then use a lotion :depending on morning or night, one is a daily and the other is an anti-again:
if i have a problem spot, i also use a microdermabrassion applicator before the cleanser

below are links to all the products i use...


keep in mind that if i dont do this for only one day then my skin goes on strike so to speak...especially after the baby
and im not even going into details of the different applications i go through:rolleyes:

Thats alot of shit. I thought i was excessive. But if your skin isn't happy without that ritual, i don't think you have a choice.

It's not needed. What do you think is the advantage of using all those expensive products? The reason you can't stop using it for a day is because your skin is "addicted" to all the chemicals you are exposing it to. You are damaging your skin more than you are helping it IMO. A simple wash with a facial cleanser a couple times a day is plenty. You shouldn't have to scrub the hell out of it and bombard it with chemicals.

PS - In my experience, Neutrogena makes multiple products with different names and appearances that have the exact same active ingredient; it's more marketing than anything. I don't know if this is the case with the specific products you listed.

i DO use sunscrean, and those products actually arent that expensive since they each last me a couple months before i have to buy again...
my skin has been a wreck since before i used to use all that stuff...
i used to have to use iso to keep it under control, and a dermatologist ok'd it since i couldnt afford the stuff shew anted me to use
i dont use the microderm all the time, i use it MAYBE once a month, if that
i have combination skin, so i use different products to balance it out
the exfoliating cleanser is a gentle one, i can hardly feel the scrubbies in it, and i dont SCRUM with the nail brush, i do it VERY gentle

im just filling in a lot of the empty spots...and i feel that taking this much care of my face is warrented from stress, i do a lot of outdoors dirty things, and i smoke on top of it all...
