Anti-Aging Products for Your Skin Type

Confused about which anti-aging products to use based on your skin type?  Different skin types need different types of product.  Here are some tips for choosing the anti-aging product that will be best for your particular skin type:

Oily Skin
For oily skin, pick something light that’s water-based. You should look for one that’s noncomedogenic (it will say it on the bottle) to help keep your pores from clogging. For dry skin, you need something with more weight. An oil-based moisturizer is preferable. If you’re somewhere in the middle, you should probably stick with a something lighter that’s water-based. Most moisturizers are labeled for skin type. As you get older, though, your skin will need more moisture, so pick an oil-based moisturizer no matter what your skin type as you age. Source: wikiHow

Dry Skin
Having dry skin means you must fight wrinkles more than those with other skin types. Anti aging products are best for you because they contain the extra moisture your skin thirsts for.
After using anti aging skin care you will see less of these symptoms commonly found with your skin type:

  • Flaking
  • Skin tightness and roughness
  • Red patches
  • Cracking, itchiness, and possible bleeding of the skin
  • Wrinkles

Sensitive Skin
This skin type requires a little extra care when shopping for anti-aging skin care products. Similar to dry skin, it’s also a good idea to avoid foaming cleansers if you have sensitive skin. Aside from the fact that it’s drying, the foaming agent can cause a reaction with skin that’s especially sensitive. Also, whether you’re looking for cleansers, moisturizers, or any other type of products, you need to be especially wary of irritating ingredients, like fragrances, dyes, or alcohol. These types of additives will easily aggravate sensitive skin by exacerbating dryness, redness, burning, and itching. Other ingredients in skin care products that have been linked to skin reactions include phenoxyethanol, formaldehyde, paraben, and imidazolidinyl urea—avoid these at all costs.
For this particular skin type, going natural is the safest bet. Consider using homemade recipes and all-natural ingredients to make your own cleansers, toners, exfoliators, and moisturizers. Source: AgeIn
