Does anybody else ever get totally overwhelmed with all the different types of skin care products? Use this cream for this, use that lotion for that...one for day, another for night. Well, I sure do! What I want to know is, what is a good skin care regime, and what products are just unnessecary "hype"? I'm 38, so I know it's time to start adding some steps, but I get confused on what to add and what to skip! And you CANNOT trust sales people to tell you that you don't need something! So here's what I do now... I have sensitive skin. In the morning I: cleanse with a 'basic' cleanser (just bought Ayur-Medic's Calming Cleanser), use a toner (which has a light exfoliant in it) and use a moisturizer with SPF (also just bought Ayur-Medic's Calming Cream for that.) At night, I cleanse, tone, and use a moisturizer. I'm now using the AyurMedic Calming Cream at night. Oh, also an eye cream. I also use Clinique's Total Turnaround. When I remember, I use the lightening cream for few sun spots I've developed over the last year. About twice a week, I use a (gentle) sugar-based scrub for stronger exfoliation. Now, this is what I've narrowed down to...but believe me I've got other things sitting around that I can layer on, too! Is this "proper"? I'm a missing something I should really be doing? Or am I overdoing something I don't need to do? AAAARGH! I get so confused! Oh, I forgot one more thing! I got that Avon two step "at home" glycolic peel kit. I use it once every couple of weeks (much less than they say to) because I do have sensitive skin. Any thoughts? I need help!!
