Skincare help for 47 year old

I feel like my face is not as smooth as it used to be. It looks dull & crepey. What products do I need???  I’m 47 & somewhat dry. 

Re: Skincare help for 47 year old

@jaward1273 I'd recommend using some kind of a retinol or retinol alternative for the texture: Paula's Choice CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment 1 oz/ 30 mL, Paula's Choice RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol 1.7 oz/ 50 mL, Drunk Elephant A-Passioni™ Retinol Cream 1 oz/ 30 mL, SOBEL SKIN Rx 4.5% Retinol Serum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL are just a few of the ones that you can find at Sephora.  If you're new to using retinol/retinoids, take it slowly at first!  Always follow with a very nourishing moisturizer (especially since you also have dry skin), so something like the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair® Cream Intense Hydration, Drunk Elephant Lala Retro™ Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides 1.69 oz/ 50 mL, or Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream Plumping & Hydrating Moisturizer would all be great to combat the dryness that retinols can *potentially* cause.

Another thing to try (not a retinol treatment, but...) would be the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Peel + Protect set as an all-inclusive option.
