If you tend to be extremely dry, you can use a cream or lotion containing a humectant such as glycerin or an antioxidant emollient such as tocopherol acetate (vitamin E). For oily skin, go with a gel, spray, or lotion with a high water or alcohol content that will evaporate quickly from your skin, try one of the new SPF cleansers, or use a mineral suncreen powder. Look for "oil-free," "hypoallergenic," and "noncomedogenic" on labels. Those with sensitive skin should try a water-based lotion with physical UVA blockers, since chemical sunscreens often irritate their skin. Blue Lizard is a favorite brand for people with extremely sensitive skin.
