Can you tell me yor age?

Do you have any pics to show me?

What creams or treatments have you tried?

Expert:  RickD810 replied 9 days ago.

The basics of good skin care are:

  • Drink lots of water
  • Eat healthily
  • Get enough sleep
  • Avoid stress
  • Drink green tea
  • Moisturise your skin
  • Use SPF 50 daily
  • Stop smoking
  • Vitamin A based creams

You could also look at laser skin resurfacing treaments (IPL), microdermabrasion and facials

No skin is the same and you will need to seek the advice on the treatment depending on the problem and skin type.

I hope this helps
