5. My most recent one is taking 3,000 mg of vitamin C every day.
Within 3 days of starting that, my skin was looking and feeling so much better. I tend to get spiderveins on my face and upper chest, and they have almost completely disappeared.

I use body wash instead of soap, and use lotion after a shower.

I don't lay out in the sun or use tanning beds any more; haven't in about 10 years. If I want to look tanned, I use tan-in-a-bottle.

For makeup, I use Bare Minerals. Best stuff ever.

I also eat more fruits and salads.

Can't say I'm a beauty queen, but I don't look too bad for being almost 54, IMHO.
