OK, so I'll just admit it: I was going to do 10 Commandments for Good Skin here, but I only came up with 8. But I bet you guys will have some to add in the comments, so let's not dwell on it, shall we? Here are your 8 commandments to having a glowly, clear face, chest and back.
Commandment 1: You will not touch your face. You get bacteria on your skin that way, which leads to clogged pores.
Commandment 2: You will wear sunscreen, even on cloudy days. It's the best protection against aging there is.
Commandment 3: You will eat your antioxidants. They're good for you inside and out, people, and they make your skin glow. So down the veggies. Make your mom happy.
Commandment 4: You will remove your makeup before bed, no matter what. I know some of you don't always wash, but your skin really needs the break overnight. Plus, over time, your makeup can mix with the oil and dirt on your face and lead to breakouts.

Commandment 5: You will look into some sort of microdermabrasion, whether it be from a dermatologist, a nice scrub or a session with your Clarisonic. You know how men don't age as quickly from the nose down? That's because shaving is a form of dermabrasion. It ultimately helps that whole wrinkle thing slow down.
Commandment 6: You will look into a good eye cream. These lightweight products help treat fine lines and often contain SPF to prevent free radicals from doing more damage.
Commandment 7: You will wash your face, neck and back immediately after exercise. Anyone who experiences post-work-out breakouts knows how key this is.
Commandment 8: You will wash your back and chest thoroughly after you rinse out your conditioner. It could be causing your body acne.
So those are your 8. I didn't include drinking water because there's some debate about whether that actually has an effect on your skin unless you're very dehydrated. But, hey, drinking a few glasses a day won't hurt anything, so if you're a water fan, by all means, add it to your commandments.
OK, so what would you add here? Which ones are you working on? And which have you mastered? Chat it out in the comments section.Photo Credit: Condé Nast Digital Studio
