9 Secrets to Great Skin

Everyone wants glowing, flawless skin. But for many of us, it’s hard to get there, especially when you have skin conditions like acne, dryness, oily skin, and more. All hope is not lost, though. Just about anyone can have great skin—but it will take some time, commitment, and maybe even a product splurge now and then. We asked the experts—dermatologists, aestheticians, beauty experts, and event a supermodel—for their best-kept secrets to flawless skin.

And it’s not just about using the right products and establishing a routine—diet, exercise, and sleep help, too. A well-balanced, nutritious diet can make your skin firm, clear, and acne-free.  Plus, drinking water is always a must (which is no surprise, since we’ve been hearing that one for ages).

But all of the tips on the following pages would be for nothing if you can’t commit to becoming diligent about caring for your skin—a great complexion won’t happen overnight, but it can happen if you stick to it. From simple lifestyle tweaks to using (sort of strange) tools, take a look at these winning strategies from the experts who know.
