Not only is it a myth that oily skin doesn't wrinkle, some women find that certain products meant to control greasiness accelerate the aging process. "The last thing aging skin needs is drying anti-acne creams," says NYC dermatologist Dr. Patricia Wexler. And while teenagers can tolerate liberal amounts of benzoyl peroxide, such strong dry-out formulas can cause older skin to produce more oil to compensate — resulting in even more breakouts. Oil-free hydrators with antioxidants are key. Luminous, not shiny, equals youthful.

DIY: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment combines 2 percent salicylic acid and aloe. Wexler Anti-Aging Acne Serum has salicylic acid and soy, a brightener.
