    21 Skin Care Products And Hacks Everyone Should Know About

    Who's ready for some sexy skin?

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the skin care hacks and products they absolutely swear by, mostly because we're nosy and want beautiful, poppin' skin too. Here are their responses:

    1. First things first, incorporate a mask like Herbivore Botanicals Brighten mask into your skin care regimen to increase hydration and brighten skin.

    2. Incorporate Neutrogena Clear Pore mask to kill bacteria and clear acne breakouts.

    3. Use Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay — which has over 13,000 reviews on Amazon — to deep-clean pores and tighten skin.

    4. Get glowin' skin simply by slatherin' egg yolk onto your face. Or, if that grosses you out, buy a Too Cool for School egg mask.

    "I do this once a week and I swear it’s better than all of the $100 face masks: Take an uncooked egg and separate the yolk and whites into two little bowls. Rub the white all over your face, let it dry, and then rinse it off. Then take the yolk and rub it in. Let it dry, and then rinse it off. The white acts like an astringent and tightens pores. The yolk is very hydrating. My skin always looks happy and healthy after this." —alialie

    Get a 5-pack from Sephora for $24.

    5. To remove excess oil and clear up acne, incorporate Thayers Witch Hazel as a toner into your daily routine.

    6. To give your skin an extra boost of hydration, spray with Mario Badescu Facial Spray.

    9. Apply the Ordinary Squalane Oil to intensely hydrate to your skin.

    10. Of course, you can't forget the ~miracle oil~ for flawless skin, the Ordinary Rose Hip Oil.

    11. Exfoliate your skin at least weekly with a Clarisonic Mia 1. It removes dead skin cells, increases blood circulation, and allows your products to seep deeper into your pores.

    "I have experimented with a lot of different creams and serums to help my dry and blemished skin, but the best thing I've ever done was get one of those battery-powered face scrubbers. It's soft and I don't apply too much pressure because I know that physical exfoliation is frowned upon, but it has made ALL the difference in the world. My face actually feels cleaner and I can tell that I'm getting better benefits from all of my other moisturizers because of it." —bauxjangles

    Get it from Amazon for $129.

    12. Use Bio-Oil to tackle scars, stretch marks, and uneven, aging, and dehydrated skin.

    13. Daily use of Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel will help out inflamed skin, sunburns, skin wounds, acne-prone skin, and the appearance of stretch marks.
