1. SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic with 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum may be the best splurge item you ever buy. Why? Ferulic acid. You'll be hard-pressed to find an ingredient that's as good at fending off UV rays and free radicals that break down skin.
2. SkinMedica TNS Advanced+ Serum tells fine lines and sagging skin, "You don't gotta go home but you gotta get the 👏🏾 off of my face." This luxurious product gently repairs skin to improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
3. The all-star Sunday Riley Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment remains one of the most effective, gentle chemical exfoliants on the market. Although it can be used as a mask, just a pump of this is enough to improve your skin's texture by morning.
4. PCA Skin Clearskin came, saw, and conquered acne-prone skin. Just apply a nickel-sized amount of this niacinamide-infused cream regularly, and watch your complexion improve in tone and texture.
5. iS Clinical Cleansing Complex wears at least three hats. First, it purges skin of any impurities. It also can be used for shaving and dissolving of makeup.
6. Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque lives in my mind, and on my face rent free. Every time I do a harsh chemical treatment, I use this mask to remoisturize my skin. It's so soothing, you might forget you have it on.
7. Obagi Hydrate Facial Moisturizer isn't a regular lotion, it's a cool lotion. Beyond moisturizing, it increases skin's water retention throughout the day.
8. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel comes through with some amazing results. These pads are drenched with seven acids that'll help reduce acne scars and blemishes.
9. Eminence Organic Skin Care Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum comes to the rescue with plant-derived hyaluronic acid to hydrate and wheat protein to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. There's also honey and aloe for an extra boost of pure radiance.
10. Cerave Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM takes your skin from flaky and fried to smooth and supple. It's dermatologist recommended and ultra-nourishing.
11. DHC Deep Cleansing Oil should be the first step in your cleansing routine — especially if you regularly wear makeup. Oil-based cleansers remove makeup easier than water-based cleansers ever could.
12. Dennis Gross Pro Facial Steamer opens your pores to make serums, exfoliants, and extractions more effective. Doing weekly steams with this can help you save money on facials.
13. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Acne Treatment drains the angriest whiteheads and most persistent blackheads to clear your complexion in a snap.
14. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream is quite literally a lifesaver for your skin. Tell your flakes and dry patches, "BEGONE," with this oatmeal and shea butter–infused cream.
15. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser lathers away all the icky things lurking in your pores and causing skin issues.
16. Obagi Clenziderm M.D. Daily Care Foaming Cleanser is beloved by those with acne because it has just enough salicylic acid to unclog those pores without inflaming your tender skin.
17. Fan-favorite EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF shields skin from harmful rays, which is why it's often recommended by dermatologists, especially for those with rosacea. Did I mention, there's no white cast 😏?
18. Or another popular choice, Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40. It literally goes ghost the minute you put it on, and that's why we love it. You'll be hard-pressed to find a scentless, invisible, weightless formula that blocks over 96% of harmful UV rays, courtesy of broad-spectrum SPF 40. If you can't put down your phone, there's blue light protection, too.
19. CosRx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence adds some much-needed hydration to your routine and preps your skin for serums. I love that the snail mucin makes my skin look dewy and rehydrated. It's also great for layering during winter.
20. ORA Face Microneedle Dermal Roller System is a physical exfoliator that promotes cell turnover and peak product penetration. My skin improved dramatically when I used one of these for a few months.
21. PCA SKIN Nutrient Toner has a winning lineup of enzymes and amino acids to revitalize skin and prepare it for serums. It helps refine pores by removing dead skin cells.
