A beautiful red lippie or an expensive diamond necklace—no matter how perfect and seemingly tailor-made—will fall flat or look cheap without a flawless canvas. This flawless canvas is, of course, your complexion. Clear, smooth skin should always be on top of a woman's priorities, not only for its confidence-boosting capabilities but also for its ability to make everything else you put on (makeup and jewelry, among others) look great.
While some women can attribute their problem-free complexions to good genes (and even then, this doesn't mean they should stop caring for their skin altogether), most of us need to exert a little effort to ensure our complexions remain pretty and fresh. So whether you have dry, oily, sensitive, or normal (lucky you!) skin, here are our picks for a healthy, glowing complexion.
