Facial Mask  - If you?re not already implementing a great mask once a week, you should absolutely consider one. Not only will it shrink your pores, but masks are a great way to refresh and wake up tired, damaged skin. Pick a product with kaolin clay, a detoxing ingredient that works wonders for all skin types.   (Photo: Getty Images)

Exfoliate - You should be sloughing off dead skin at least two times a week. For a more abrasive scrub, choose a product containing sea salt, like Lush?s Ocean Salt Cleaner. For sensitive types, go with a milder scrub like The Body Shop?s Aloe Gentle Exfoliator.  (Photo: Photo Disc/ Getty Images)

Look More Contemporary (And Younger) - While makeup can unquestionably enhance your appearance, too much of it can, in fact, make you look dated, dull and older. Caked-on is what you don?t want. Instead, learn to use a minimalist approach that will not only slash years off of your appearance, but also help you in loving the skin you?re in.  (Photo: GettyImages)

Supplements - Work your beauty from the inside out by taking great supplements that encourage skin repair. We love biotin, borage, flaxseed (especially for those with eczema), grapeseed (for oily types), and super antioxidant trio E, A and C. (Photo: Getty Images)
