Whether you're fighting age spots, redness, or dryness, there's a corrector out there for you. Click through for the products, ingredients, and treatments that target your biggest skin complaint.

We'll be honest with you -- once the elastin that keeps skin taut is damaged, it's hard to repair without a visit to a cosmetic dermatologist. But you can firm the skin by increasing collagen with products infused with retinol, growth factors, or peptides.
Try: Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream ($23.99) contains peptides that work on the jawline to boost elasticity and skin smoothness.

Hydroquinone works by slowing the overproduction of melanin that creates those annoying dark patches. Equally important in scoring a flawless face is sunscreen. Wearing a broad spectrum SPF daily ensures that dark patches don't get darker.
Try: CeraVe Suncare Sunscreen Face SPF 50 ($14.99) blocks out UV rays while the addition of ceramides repair the top layer of skin.
Keep sensitive skin in check with soothing natural ingredients like licorice extract, which helps to control redness and flushing. Other calming redness-reducers include turmeric, white tea extract, cucumber, and ginger.
