When choosing your product, look at the ingredients list (below) to get an idea of what works and doesn't work. You can always mix and match and try something new. For some people, tight skin might look like oily skin but may be the result of sun damage or chemical use. You may want to look for products that contain zinc sulfate as a moisturizer. Zinc sulfate helps to improve elasticity in the skin by smoothing the skin's surface. Some products contain silicones as moisturizers. Some products contain hydrosols, which are a special kind of moisturizer with anti-inflammatory effects. Some hydrosols, especially the ones with alpha hydroxy acids, can cause irritation or dryness. It is also important to use moisturizers that don't contain fragrance, preservatives or dyes. If you have sensitive or acne prone skin, a few things may help. These are things that you can wear while you are waiting to see a dermatologist: Apply the product just after you leave the shower. You may feel itchy or itchy bumps for a few minutes. This will help prevent acne and irritation. Apply the product to a dry skin area and continue to leave it there. After a few minutes, wash the area with warm water and use your fingers to apply the cream for 5-10 minutes. For some people, they can use their fingertips.
