9 Skin Care Products Dermatologists Swear They Will Never Stop Using

I often wonder what skin care products dermatologists are actually using at home. They always recommend or prescribe you products, but what are the things they love? I wanted to find out what dermatologist recommended skin care products actually looked like, so I spoke to three different professionals to find out.

I talked to Dr. Dendy Engelman, a dermatologist at Manhattan Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, and Dr. Kenneth Howe [of] Wexler Dermatology in New York. Each doctor told me which products they love to use themselves and therefore recommend to their clients.

I was curious to know the items a dermatologist’s skin care routine actually contains. Dr. Engelman told me that she cleanses, moisturizes, applies sunscreen, and uses treatments like masks or serums. Meanwhile, … “A great skin care routine requires ingredients that protect your base, strengthen your foundation, exfoliate dead skin and retain moisture.”

Some important ingredients that should be included in said routine are ceramides, retinols, and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients help improve your complexion, reduce skin damage, and prevent acne. Check out the skin care products that these dermatologists have incorporated into their own routines and say they will never stop using.

Battle Dry Winter Skin
AmorePacific Moisture Bound Rejuvenating Creme, $150, Sephora
“One of my absolute faves is Amore Pacific’s Moisture Bound Rejuvenating Creme,” Dr. Howe said. “Enriched by botanicals (including bamboo leaf extract and green tea), it is the rare emollient that moisturizes deeply without being at all heavy.” It’s the ideal answer to dry skin caused by harsh winter weather.

9 Skin Care For Sensitive Skin
Fancl Face Wash Powder, $20, Amazon
Dr. Howe told me that Fancl is a Japanese skin care line that isn’t made with any chemicals or preservatives of any kind. “As a result, these products are far less irritating, and may be the only products tolerated by certain people. The proof that Fancl products are preservative-free is that each of them has an expiration date (typically 60-90 days once opened).” The powder wash is great for travel and it’s lightweight. Simply wet the powder, and lather it up to create a cleansing foam that will leave you with a deep clean.
