I have more or less good skin.  I tend to break out around my period (this time around, I had three blemishes, two on my chin and one on my cheek) and a few blackheads and visible pores on my nose.  I have extremely fair skin and I do have some hyperpigmentation left over from past breakouts.  I also suspect that some of my breakouts are a result of sensitive skin.

My goal is to have the best skin possible by Halloween.  The look for my costume involves no base make-up if possible (long story).  I'm trying to do the inside/outside treatment: eating more vegetables and fruits, drinking lots of water, less junk, and plenty of exercise and rest, as well as sticking with a regular skin care regimen until then.

Here's what I'm doing: I'm currently using the Neutrogena Advanced Solution Acne Care System...though I'm using Cetaphil in the morning instead of the included cleanser.  I'm also using the Neutrogena Acne Fading Peel.  I have the Oil of Olay vitamin packets and I'm going to try to remember to take them on a regular basis (I'm so forgetful when it comes to that).  I may also try spending some time in the sauna. I'm still debating on getting a couple of facials. Sooo...any advice or suggestions?  Should I do anything differently?  Thanks in advance!

I've never used it, but I heard the Neutrogena products are pretty good. I love Cetaphil, it was suggested to me by my dermatogolist a few years ago. Also, the key to getting and keeping great skin is consistency. In my experience, I had to find the products that worked for my skin and STICKING w/ them!! For me any variation from my products or routine will cause breakouts. Also drinking lots of water, exercise, good diet, etc will help keep skin clear. Facials are a great way to rid skin of impurities and removing dead skin cells that dull your complexion. Sounds like you're on the right track, just be sure to stick w/ it.  ~GL~
