Has anyone seen the movie 'American Psycho' with Christian Bale? In the beginning he describes in detail his morning routine. Has anyone attempted to do this routine?

Is doing all this necessary? Or is that too much to do? What products do you recommend to make my skin like Christian Bale in this film?

I live in the American Gardens building on West Eighty-First Street, on the eleventh floor. My name is Patrick Bateman. I'm twenty-seven years old.

I believe in taking care of myself, in a balanced diet, and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now.

Soothing Beauty Mask

After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser, Oil Free - 7 oz

In the shower I use a water-activated gel cleanser...

Neutrogena Body Wash for Clean, Clear Skin 8.5 fl oz (250 ml)

then a honey almond body scrub...

100 Percent Pure - Organic Honey Almond Body Scrub - 14 oz

and on the face, an exfoliating gel scrub.

Nivea for Men Energizing Face Scrub, Normal Skin, 4.4 Ounces

Then I apply an herb mint facial masque which I leave on for ten minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine.

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque 12 oz. Jar

I always use an after-shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older.

Nivea for Men Sensitive After Shave Extra Soothing Balm, 3.3 Fluid Ounces

Then moisturizer...

American Crew After Shave Moisturizer 4.23 oz.

then an anti-aging eye balm...

Nivea Revitalizing Eye Cream Q10 0.5 oz.

followed by a final moisturizing "protective" lotion.

Nivea for Men Skin Essentials Protective Lotion, SPF 15, Normal to Dry Skin, 2.5 Fl Oz.

Haven't seen it, too bad, what you describe is an absolute hoot! Must rent the movie.
MAC5Gem -- what one does in the privacy of their own home is their own business -- and if you have the time go for it (and report back!).

Yes, I have heard good things about that mask. It's been around a long time. I think I used it in college like 10 years ago. My roommate was a big Queen Helene fan.

Probably my favourite movie.

Christian Bale is amazing in this movie , so insane. His skin is amazing too. He has always had good skin though.

He went through an intense physical regimen too..

What a legend.

One of my favorite movies, too! I am really working to get that physical appearance in both fitness and skin.
