Dermatologists are among the most reliable sources for skin-care advice, so when they tell us they’ve been using a specific product or brand for 10-plus years, we know it’s the best of the best.
“I use sunscreen daily. I love Colorscience Sunforgettable Total Protection SPF 50 ($65), which is chemical-free and so easy to reapply every two to three hours. The powder is easy to apply, leaves no grease, and is perfect for travel.
For eye cream, I love Neocutis Lumiere Firm Riche Eye Cream ($118), as it contains growth factors and peptides to reduce fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. I also love Neocutis Bio Serum Firm Rejuvenating Growth Factor & Peptide Treatment ($275) because it has improves the texture, tone and firmness of my skin.”

“Different forms of retinoids have been my tried-and-true friend since starting my dermatology studies. It’s the science-backed treatment for fine lines, discoloration, tone, texture, and it even helps prevent and treat precancerous lesions. Retinoids and sunscreen are the best foundation to any skin-care program.”

“I have been using SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum ($253) for 10-plus years and really think it has helped sustain my completion. I have genetically oily, pore-prone skin and this has helped maintain and improve luminosity without exacerbating any of those issues.”

“The best anti-aging and most important product I have been using for 10-plus years is sunscreen, and while the brands and technology may have changed over the years, the importance of sun protection hasn’t. Currently, my favorite is ISDIN Eryfotona Ageless ($66). The technology packed into this sunscreen is revolutionary—it not only protects against the damaging sun’s UV rays using gold standard zinc oxide, but it also includes peptides, antioxidants, and the secret sauce: DNA repairsomes. These actively work to repair and reverse sun damage, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and essentially creating the best in class photoaging protection and treatment.
I love pairing this with ISDIN SUNISDIN ($50) supplements, which contain polypodium leucotomos and other antioxidants. Together, they help protect against the aging free radical damage caused by the sun, ultimately boosting the skin’s appearance. Combining these two products daily helps to maintain a youthful appearance and are the most important products I have been using for 10-plus years.”
