Here’s what the country’s top dermatologists use themselves.
Ever wish you could sneak a peek inside the medicine cabinets of the country’s top dermatologists? Now you can! Here, they share the products they actually use to keep their skin looking young.
While a few are a bit pricey, some cost less than $20! According to TODAY Style’s experts, all of them will leave you with younger, fresher-looking skin.
1. VI Derm Clear HQ Free
“This serum was created as an alternative to hydroquinone for people suffering from brown spots and fine lines. But it’s safe to use long term because it doesn’t bleach the surrounding skin. It’s also packed with powerful anti-aging ingredients like kojic acid and licorice root extract, which fight free radicals that damage collagen. I just love this product and my friends and patients love it, too! It can be applied once or twice a day, just be sure to use sunscreen with this product,” said Dr. Dina Strachan, a New York City-based dermatologist.
2. Avon Anew Clinical Line Eraser with Retinol,
“I love this product because it’s sensitive enough for first-time retinol users. Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, does a lot. It minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, diminishes hyperpigmentation, blackheads and dark spots and reduces inflammation, pore size and the appearance of blemishes. The only issue is that it can be harsh on the skin, leaving it dry and irritated. But not this product,” said Dr. Kim Nichols, a Connecticut-based dermatologist.
3. Drunk Elephant Rise + Glow Duo,
“I started researching natural skin lines a few years ago when I was looking to replace my underperforming hydrating gel. That’s when I discovered this gel and serum combo. I was initially attracted to the hypoallergenic and nontoxic nature of these two products, but after I tested them, I was immediately drawn to their silky texture and smooth application — and their results,” said Dr. Jessica Weiser, a New York City-based dermatologist.
