It depends: This question is very complex and depends on a lot of factors. If you are healthy and not anemic, and eat a well balanced diet, you will likely get the iron you need from your diet and not require any supplemental iron. For an excellent reference that breaks down iron requirements see the nih's web page on iron information and daily intake requirements at http://ods.Od.Nih.Gov/factsheets/iron/#h.

Exfoiliate: Exfoliating the skin helps with cell turn over. If you're using a exfoliation that doesn't damage your skin, you can do it daily. Follow up with a moisturizer with sun screen.
