If you were stuck on a deserted island and could only pick 4 skin care products, what would they be?  Well, first of all, if I was stuck on a deserted island, my top 5 things to have wouldn't be skin care, but.... just sayin'...

Adult acne with dry skin is very common and needs to be treated without drying your skin; and needs to be anti-aging as well.  Below is an effective daily routine for anyone who has adult acne with dry skin: Morning: Cleanse using the Acne Solutions Treatment Toner only.  This will deep clean your skin without drying it out, and kill bacteria while offering a good dose of antioxidants.  Use a cotton facial pad, and just swipe the night's bacteria and grime away.
