The erstwhile Steve Sanders has been smitten by the multi-level marketing bug.

Why is Ian Ziering smiling? Tight pores!

Ian Ziering has always looked young for his age. Heck, as Steve Sanders on the original "Beverly Hills 90210" he was playing a teen way into his late twenties and, today, at almost 47, he still looks pretty darn good. Why? Well, we're not sure, but maybe his latest career move has something to do with his youthful glow and nearly wrinkle-free skin. Ziering has apparently gotten into the skin care biz.

Seems that while Tori's been off having babies with Dean, Jennie's been "Dancing" and Brian's been marrying the Sexiest Woman in the Galaxy, Ian (remember, he pronounces it EYE-un), has been selling Nu-Skin anti-aging products and, according to the website, recommends using their "battery powered device designed to pump 'galvanic current' through your pores.

Ziering returned to his native New Jersey earlier this week to "pitch" the NuSkin line – but, oddly wouldn't identify it by name in the local paper for fear that it would "undermine other area sales reps."

The ever gallant Ziering told that he hasn't abandoned acting for skin care but that the two now go hand-in-hand. “This is in addition to acting,” he told the paper. “I found this to be a great way to leverage my success to help other people. As an actor, you know that every act has a closing curtain. I’m always looking for additional revenue streams. This represents the cutting edge in (anti-aging) research.”

In a blog back in February, Ziering explained how he became a NuSkin convert. "While traveling in "Hollywood" circles, you can be sure I've tried every cream, scrub and magic potion there is out there to keep my appearance competitive. While in Utah, I did half of my face with the Galvanic Spa and I was shocked at how much better it looked than the other side. My pores were tighter, my skin tone was radiant and texture was smoother. In short, I witnessed revolutionary science and technology in action."

NuSkin, for those who've never heard of it, is a multi-level marketing company out of Provo, UT that's been in business since 1984. (The definition of this kind of company is one that has a "marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only for sales they personally generate, but also for the sales of others they recruit, creating a downline of distributors and a hierarchy of multiple levels of compensation."

Come to think of it, Steve Sanders was always the entrepreneurial type.
