Hi Lesley, thank you for the question.

The first step in any skin care regime is sun protection and a SPF 50 or higher needs to be considered that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. I am a firm believer in alpha hydroxy and polyhydroxy acids combined with anti-oxidants (vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin E) and as such recommend that you have a look at the NeoStrata Range of products, however these ingredients can be found in other brands such as Environ, Done, Dr Perricone, etc.
I would also recommend a gentle twice daily face wash that contains either glycolic acid or salicylic acid for the combination skin.

Your response to some questions say to include anti-oxidants.Do u mean in your diet (supplement) or look for it in the skin care products itself?
