Ten minutes postcleanse, does your skin feel tight when you smile?
You need a creamy cleanser. The glycerin and lily extract in Chanel Mousse Confort Rinse-Off Rich Foaming Cream Cleanser ($45; Chanel.com) gently clean and moisturize skin.
Are you frequently dealing with breakouts?
The salicylic acid in Noxema Clean Blemish Control Foaming Wash ($6; drugstores) prevents and treats blemishes, while glycerin locks in moisture.
Do you wear waterproof eye makeup?
Dior Instant Eye Makeup Remover for Sensitive Eyes ($28; department stores) is strong enough to sweep away even the inkiest mascara but also has antioxidant white tea to prevent irritation. Use it before washing with your regular cleanser.
