Talk to a dermatologist about which skincare products might be right for you and which you should avoid. Some anti-aging products can be irritating to the skin. It's a good idea to test any new product first before using it on a large area of skin or on your face. To test a product, apply a little bit on your inner forearm twice a day for four or five days. If there's no reaction, it's probably safe to use the product on your face. Also, use only as many products as you need. Using several different products, especially anti-aging products, at the same time may irritate the skin.
