Derm picks for acne If you suffer from acne, improving your skin is all about building the right routine with effective ingredients that don’t irritate the skin. Key ingredients include salicylic acid, which helps reduce acne by exfoliating skin and clearing pores, and adapalene, a retinoid dermatologists love that targets breakouts at the source by unclogging pores and accelerating cell turnover.
Derm picks for ageless skin It’s possible to slow signs of aging and get that youthful glow with dermatologist-recommended products you can easily work into your routine. A key ingredient is retinol, which helps slow down your skin’s aging process and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But most importantly, be sure to wear sunscreen on a daily basis to avoid sun damage that leads to premature signs of aging.
Derm picks for dryness Even if you have oily, acne-prone skin, it’s important to include a moisturizer in your skin care routine, especially in cold or dry climates. When skin is dry, it can become more irritated and make acne worse. Moisturizer can help decrease inflammation and maintain a healthy skin barrier. Oil-free moisturizers are best for oily and acne-prone skin, while a cream or oil-based product is ideal for dry and sensitive skin.
Derm picks for dark spots Hyperpigmentation is a common concern for visits to the dermatologist. Caused by an increased production of melanin, dark spots can be treated with dermatologist-recommended ingredients like vitamin C, hydroquinone and lactic acid. Try a dark spot–correcting serum to lighten acne scars, hyperpigmentation, blotches and age spots, and improve overall skin tone.
