Finding products our derm would approve of isn’t exactly an easy task. That is, unless we want to buy from one of the pricey lines they carry in their office (we don’t). But thanks to LovelySkin, it’s about to get a whole lot easier. The dermatologist owned and operated beauty site carries only derm-approved skin care and makeup products selected by founder and CEO Joel Schlessinger, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist.The formulas he’d recommend to his own patients are the only ones that hit the site, so we totally trust him. Here, ten products we’ll be ordering from LovelySkin, like, yesterday.
1. Obagi Hydrate Facial Moisturizer
Have dry, ultra-sensitive winter skin? Look no further. This fragrance-free formula uses a unique hydromanil delivery system that gradually releases moisture throughout the day so you’ll still feel hydrated come 5 o’clock. More than 500 LovelySkin buyers gave it a perfect five-star rating, so consider us sold.
2. NIA24 Age Recovery for Decolletage and Hands
Most people are diligent about skin care and sun protection—except when it comes to their neck, chest and hands. This hand and body cream contains a powerful blend of antioxidants to help firm, smooth, and brighten the skin on these areas. Psst: Your hands and décolletage are about to look ten years younger.
3. Viviscal PRO Advanced Hair Health Supplements
Whether it’s caused by hormonal fluctuations, stress, medication or age, hair loss can be super frustrating (and embarrassing). These supplements are scientifically formulated to help. Take them twice a day and let the biotin, AminoMar, vitamin C and apple extract work their magic. They’re designed to promote hair growth, strengthen existing strands and prevent future breakage.
4. Neocutis Lumiere Eye Cream
Fine lines and dark circles begone. The hydrating combination of hyaluronic acid and caffeine work to combat puffiness and racoon eyes while binding moisture to the skin and repairing damaged cells. What more could we ask for?
5. SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum
This multitasking serum has two components: an APS Correcting Complex and TNS Recovery Complex. The APS Correcting Complex uses antioxidants and peptides to improve the skin’s appearance, while the TNS Recovery Complex works to soften fine lines and wrinkles with growth factors and matrix proteins. Bye, wrinkles, uneven tone, large pores and rough texture. We won’t miss you.
6. Eminence Organic Monoi Age Corrective Exfoliating Cleanser
Chemical exfoliators are great and all, but there’s something about a physical exfoliator that just makes our skin feel extra clean. This particular cleanser contains both. It has naturally occurring AHAs and finely ground olive seeds to slough off every last dead skin cell. Baby-smooth skin, here we come.
7. SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Antioxidant Serum
More than 800 five-star reviews on LovelySkin speak to this serum’s ability to brighten dark spots, improve texture and create an overall glowy complexion. We’re impressed. It also protects against future damage from UVA/UVB rays, infrared radiation and ozone pollution, all of which can contribute to premature aging.
8. EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 Sunscreen
“This goes on lovely, has basically no white cast and it dries down to a very subtle glow on your skin. It’s calming, very protective and my skin feels hydrated,” one buyer raves. Another mentions that it’s great for acne-prone skin thanks to its 5 percent niacinamide. We’re partial to the fact that it contains protection against both UVA and UVB rays, so we’re totally protected against sun damage.
9. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel (60 Count)
This at home chemical peel is basically a cure-all. It targets fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, dark spots and uneven tone and texture. According to the brand, 92 percent of participants in a consumer study experienced firmer, more radiant skin after using the peel. Not too shabby.
10. Obagi Nu-Derm Toner #2
Any skin care guru will tell you that toner is an essential step. In this case, it’s intended to balance the skin’s pH level, clear pores and prep the face to absorb anti-aging treatments. But deep cleaning doesn’t have to be harsh. Obagi’s Nu-Derm Toner #2 is alcohol-free and contains aloe to soothe the skin as you swipe it on.
