    What's the best over the counter facial care products in your opinion.

    that depends solely on your skin....what youre allergic to....how your skin reacts to each part of the facial....i would rather use natural products than what has been manufactured. no, i'm not a 'naturalist' by any means ! here are some 'out of your own cabinet' recipes for facials:

    facial scrub : sugar and your own lotion- mix in equal proprtions and lightly rub around your face. you will not only smooth away dry skin but you will also hydrate your skin. I use Ponds

    Pore-Reducer: honey.......let sit on your face for five minutes...OR lemon juice (just keep it out of your eyes)

    eggs (Whites) for oily skin:let sit until dry

    eggs (yolks) for dry skin:let sit until dry

    but if you are looking for something manufactured, go with Bio-Elements

    no, i've never used Arbonne.....not sure what it is or who its made by....i use a mixture of products :Joico, maybelling and cover girl...., i dont use a primer.....i like  look 'natural'. 

    although i do use concealers.....if you have red patches (some people do) find a concealer that has a hint of green. i know, sounds funny but the green will neutralize the red. for dark circles under your eyes, match it to the inside of your wrist with a little more of a yellow tint to it to help brighten.

    testing products can be a little expensive but once you find what works for you it's easy to camouflage trouble spots

    you can use all the best 'tanners' out there, but because of the amount of melanin (or lack thereof) in your skin, you won't tan.....just burn.....there's nothing you can do about it-unfortunately ! you can thank your family for that ! LOL ! spray tans are great! they look natural as long as they are done by a professional. Have fun !
