Haven’t you always been curious to peek into your dermatologist’s medicine cabinet? In the business of keeping skin clear, healthy and glowing, there’s no one better to turn to when shopping for skin-care products. With that in mind, we asked six dermatologists for their personal skin-care picks — all conveniently found on drugstore shelves.
“I recommend [this gentle cleanser] for anyone with dry or sensitive skin — be it from rosacea or eczema, or medications, like isotretinoin (Accutane) and Retin-A, which cause dryness. For the health-conscious, it has very few ingredients, and does not contain fragrance, parabens, or dye.” — Estee Williams, a board-certified medical, cosmetic, and surgical dermatologist and clinical professor in dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center
“With advancements in cosmetic chemistry [and] technology, you now can get as much hydration with a lotion as you previously could have gotten only from a heavy cream. [Vaseline]’s triple-purified petrolatum forms a protective seal over the skin to protect the skin barrier, allow it to repair itself, and prevent loss of hydration.” — Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City
