Frequently Asked Questions, Part 2: "What Is Your Facial Skin Care Regimen?"

The Asian gene is awfully helpful in keeping my skin fresh, young, and thankfully inconspicuous whenever I go to see something like Sydney White—but a good facial skin care regimen is also necessary. My daily routine is as follows:

In the shower, I start with Neutrogena's Fresh Foaming Cleanser, a refreshing yet gentle wash that cleans thoroughly without being too rough on my face. The only abuse I allow my face to endure is the occasional Danza Slap.

Once I've emerged from my shower, I pour some Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner onto my palms and very gently spread it all over my face. It does every thing a toner should do (I'm not sure what toner is supposed to do, actually) without stinging or burning.

Then, I rub in a hearty helping of Neutrogena Combination Skin Moisture to keep my face well-moisturized for the entire day, while holding back the oil and keeping me not-shiny. My beautifully matted look in pictures and on camera? It's this stuff that makes it so.

Twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays, instead of the Fresh Foaming Cleanser, I exfoliate with St. Ives Apricot Scrub because sometimes you need a little fruit on your face. And didn't your Fairy Gay Mother always emphasize the importance of exfoliating?

I don't have a nighttime regimen—but if I'm feeling particularly dirty (or I've just come back from a WeHo orgy), I might just do the daily regimen before I go to bed but replace the cleanser with either Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser or Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash With Tea Tree Oil. Variety is good (in porn, in facial care, and in life).

On occasion, I'll dab some Neutrogena Radiance Boost Eye Cream under my eyes (with my middle finger because your pointing finger is far too rough for your eye area!). This stuff works wonders—it really does remove the appearance of dark circles and puffiness, just like the bottle says! I've recommended it to many people, and I'm recommending it to you so that we all can be beautiful together.

Yes, it takes all that to make this possible:

  1. Anonymous Said,

    Oh, Prince, I wish I had a face worthy of a regimen like that!


  2. Peter Varvel Said,

    Guess you need to go to that much effort and trouble after the kind of 'facial' one typically gets at at WeHo orgy . . . I've heard.


  3. Are you advertising for them or something?....St.Ives kick ass though.


  4. You know, these companies really should at least send me some coupons or something.
