    Every day, make sure you're using a gentle skin cleanser that's formulated for your skin type (oily, normal, dry, acne-prone, etc.). Following your daily cleanser, use a moisturizer.

    For specific skin care issues, consult your dermatologist before starting any particular regimen.

    Day 1: Clean everything that touches your face.

    Day 3: Notice every time you touch your face — then STOP.

    Day 4: Moderate your intake of the "Big 4" in your diet: dairy, gluten, refined sugars, and excessive salt.

    Day 6: Focus on better sleep and less stress.
