To prevent that uncomfortable feeling of tightness (and the unfortunate fine lines and wrinkles this skin type is so prone to), you need to look for moisturizers with special hydration capabilities. Some active ingredients in an über intense moisturizer include salicylic and lactic acids. In addition, plant extracts like hibiscus, chamomile aloe and even cornmeal can help lead skin back on the path to rehydration.

Aging Skin

You Need: A proper moisturizer, even if you've begun to see evidence of age. While you may not begin to see substantial signs of aging until you reach your 40s, the process can begin much sooner. If you've noticed signs of fine wrinkles, increasing dryness, and maybe even the appearance of sun spots, some skin first aid may be in order.

Look for creams rich in retinol. Retinol is derived from vitamin A and is one of the best skin care ingredients to reduce the signs of aging, balance skin tone and even smooth the surface of the skin. The important thing to remember is not to combine retinol with other products with Vitamin C at the same time, as this can potentially aggravate skin. Get retinol products on the cheap, from drug stores - look for some that combine peptides and sirtuin proteins that tighten skin. For a pricier product, a doctor can prescribe retinoid creams specifically for you.
