As a busy mom of three, Greenwich, CT dermatologist Kim Nichols, MD says she has to keep her regimen simple, but as a dermatologist, she always makes sure to use products that help protect and correct her skin. "My skin-care trifecta includes an antioxidant, a sunscreen and a retinol,” she says. Below, the products she relies on for clear, radiant skin.

“In the morning, I can’t leave the house without applying my favorite vitamin C serum: SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic ($166), which is clinically proven to fight off environmental damage that contributes to early signs of aging. And as a dermatologist, I practice what I preach: I wear SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 ($34) every day, year-round. I then finish with Glo Skin Beauty Moisturizing Tint SPF 30+ ($44) for added luminosity.”

“I actually look forward to my nighttime routine because my SkinCeuticals Custom D.O.S.E serum ($195) makes it so easy for busy moms like myself. It’s a two-in-one corrective product—with retinol— that helps boost cellular turnover and even out skin tone. I also take my NicholsMD Probiotic Mega Blend DF ($80)—one capsule a day not only helps my gut, but also has skin-clearing properties. Lastly, I use Aquaphor Healing Ointment ($7) on my lips to help alleviate dryness and chapping.”
