13 Powerful Skin Care Products Dermatologists Wish Their Patients Used at Home

Have you ever wished you could pick a top dermatologist’s brain about which skin care products should be present in your daily regimen, which drugstore options are in the clear to apply to your skin and which products they actually use on theirs? Look no further. Here, 13 products dermatologists can’t stop recommending to patients and stocking up on themselves.


Revision Skincare Nectifirm ($89)

Revision Skincare Nectifirm

“My neck and décolleté feel firmer, smoother, more hydrated, and less crepey after using Revision Skincare Nectifirm. This is due to its abundance of peptides, yeast, ceramides, and glucosamine. Peptides reduce the appearance of lines, and help firm and lift; ceramides enhance hydration and moisture; and glucosamine and vitamins C and E help smooth, brighten and tone. I don’t hate my neck anymore!”
–New York dermatologist Patricia Wexler, MD


Bye Bye Blemish Drying Lotion ($10)

Bye Bye Blemish Drying Lotion

“I love the results of Bye Bye Blemish Drying Lotion. This lotion uses zinc oxide, sulfur and salicylic acid, and is best used as a spot blemish treatment applied only on the lesion. The trick is to apply the sediment directly to the lesion, undiluted by shaking. It’s both antiseptic and clarifying, and reduces the size and severity of blemishes. It exfoliates the clogged pores with its betahydroxy acid formula. The maximum-strength salicylic acid exfoliates dead cells from the pores, and the overnight zinc oxide and sulfur rapidly reduce the size and severity of the lesions. It’s big guns for an over-the-counter product.”
–New York dermatologist Patricia Wexler, MD


SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator ($178)

SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator

SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator brings new meaning to hydration! Hyaluronic acid has a natural affinity for water. This makes it a natural ingredient for any moisturizer. What makes this product unique is the proprietary mix of five different hyaluronic acids that smooth the skin, decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improving the overall tone and texture. The five hyaluronic acids work synergistically to provide immediate smoothing and continuous hydration throughout the day. It actually supports the skin’s natural ability to replenish your own hyaluronic acid for overall skin support. I’ve always been a fan of hyaluronic acid moisturizers, but this one takes the cake.”
