Younger looking, more beautiful and healthy skin doesn't require skin salves that contain the purest water from the top of the Himalayas. In fact, you can attain younger looking, more beautiful and healthy skin by following a simple and easy regiment of three inexpensive skincare products that are available at your local pharmacy or convenience store. And the best part about it is that this can all cost you less than $50. Dr. Schultz will share which products these are.

@Adele: Yes, those products are for skins of color.

@L Mac: In the morning, always use your sunscreen first, then your moisturizer (see The Most Common Mistake When Applying Sunscreen). Always apply antioxidants at night, and for an explanation, see my comment below the following video, half-way through the paragraph (Does Makeup with SPF Really Protect from the Sun).

Hi, I am 27 yr old Asian with no signs of wrinkles or skin damage. I use sunscreen everyday but I am wondering if glycolic creams are recommended for my skin at this age? Also, what percentage of active Vit C should I be using at night?

Neal Schultz, M.D. on August 24, 2009 at 5:07pm

@Brenda: Even in your 20's, using glycolics is a very good idea to exfoliate dead cells that can dull and clog the skin. In addition, it will help delay changes in your skin that normally occur in your 30's.

Active Vitamin C should be at least 10%.

Can I use vitamin c with tazorac at night?

Neal Schultz, M.D. on March 17, 2010 at 5:46pm

@Karen: The quick answer is yes, you can, and I hope you'll also be happy to know that I'll be airing an episode on the compatibility of retinoids and antioxidants in the coming weeks.
