21 Skincare Products Dermatologists Swear By

If there’s anyone I’ll take skincare shopping advice from, without question, it’s dermatologists. They are the certified experts in the field after all. When I’m doing research for beauty stories, I love getting their takes on the products that they think are the most effective. It makes a big difference to have a product that works for you than getting stuck with something that’s completely wrong for your skin type, or that doesn’t do anything at all. The last thing I want to do is waste some money on an expensive buy.

Luckily, we’ve gotten so much intel from dermatologists to shop smart. They’ve guided us on how to purchase everything from moisturizers to exfoliants to products with buzzy ingredients like hyaluronic acid and peptides. The amount of knowledge they’ve dropped on us is enough to fill a bathroom vanity and then some.

Sure, you can read through our many skincare articles (and you should!) to soak in their expertise, but to make it even easier for you if you’re looking to add to your cart right now, I’ve compiled some of their most compelling recommendations below.
