Making Youth and Beauty Last

I’ve loved a lot of things about being in college, but I think I loved one thing the most: being young! They say that youth is wasted on the young, but I don’t think that’s true of me. I really appreciate feeling good and being pain-free, active, and — well, if not “beautiful,” then at least as beautiful as I can be!
I’m graduating soon, and that has me thinking about growing older. I don’t mind getting old (as they say, it’s “better than the alternative!”), but I do want to make sure that you keep as much of my youth as Father Time will let me hang onto. So I thought I’d ask the experts: How do you recommend I keep my youthful beauty and energy? I know I should stay healthy and all of that, but I’m no expert in skincare or anti-aging techniques.

Caring for Your Skin

For the most part, I like the way I look. I think I have a pretty healthy self-image. I work out and I stay pretty skinny, even if I don’t always eat that well. And I try to dress my best, too. But I do have one embarrassing problem that I’ve been dealing with since middle school, and it doesn’t seem to ever go away: I have bad skin.

It’s really not the kind of bad where you have to go to the doctor, though. It’s not like my whole face is covered in acne — it’s just that I always have at least some acne, pretty much all of the time, and I feel like my skin is oily sometimes and dry at other times. It always looks bad. Most of my family members have pretty good skin, so I don’t know why this happened to me — plus, since my parents have good skin, I never really learned how to fix mine. Experts, what should I do?
