Don't go to your girlfriend's house and use her products—you might just breakout the next day. Also, invest in your skincare early, it will cost you much less later!" —Olga Lorencin-Northrup of Kinara Skin Care Clinic & Spa

A thin coat of honey on cleansed skin (especially raw or organic honey which is very active with enzymes) exfoliates, hydrates, and heals. It's remarkably effective on all skin types (with the exception, of course, of those with honey allergies)." —Leanne Lurie of Lula's Holistic Mini Spa

Make a consistent investment (financial, time or otherwise) in retaining, prevention and protecting your skin, your largest and most important organ!" —Francesca Paige of Francesca Paige Skin

5/7Photograph: Jakob N. Layman"I think the most important way to achieve and maintain great skin is to sleep! So many of us are overly tired from crazy schedules that we tend to neglect ourselves by trying to fill every single moment of every single day, which of course leads to sleep deprivation. Not getting enough sleep can wreck havoc on your skin. If you can, try to get at least eight hours of sleep a night. Try it for one week and you’ll definitely notice a huge different in how you look and more importantly... how you feel." —Gina Mari of Gina Mari Skincare

Layman"Beautiful skin is a lifestyle; Sleep at least 8 hours, exercise, eat healthy, use the best skin care products you can afford, use sun protection everyday AND clean those pores at least once a month by getting a facial to keep your skin smooth, blemish free, hydrated and glowing!" —Veronica Barton-Schwartz of Veronica Malibu Skin & Body Care Center
