With so many skincare products to choose from, it can be overwhelming to develop a skincare routine that offers the protection, prevention, and correction your skin needs. If you are struggling to find a regimen that works for you, continue reading for the best dermatologist-recommended skincare routine.

Best Dermatologist-Recommended Skincare Routine for Morning

1. Cleanser

The best dermatologist-recommended skincare routine begins with cleansing your skin each morning. Ideally, you should select a gentle foaming cleanser that is free and clear of any ingredients that could strip away natural oils.

In addition, take care to choose a product that doesn’t include any irritating fragrances.

2. Antioxidant

Post-cleansing, apply an antioxidant serum containing vitamin C and vitamin E, with ferulic acid.

A daily antioxidant shields skin from free radicals and harmful environmental agents like pollution. It also has the ability to smooth wrinkles and lines, even-out skin tone, and produce a bright and glowing complexion.

3. Physical Defense Sunscreen

This is one of the most important things you can do to preserve the health and appearance of your skin. When choosing a sunscreen, look for one that offers physical defense and contains iron oxide, zinc oxide, or titanium dioxide. Physical defense sunscreens sit on top of the skin and reflect UV rays, helping to limit the chance of an allergic reaction.

Also, be sure that the product has at least a 30 SPF and that you apply it regularly and liberally.

Best Dermatologist-Recommended Skincare Routine for Evening

1. Makeup Remover

Before you get ready for bed, use a make remover to eliminate all traces of concealer, foundation, eyeliner, etc. Doing so helps rid skin of any residue or pore-clogging debris.

2. Cleanse

Once all makeup is removed, you can wash your face with a gentle cleanser. It can even be the same one you use in the morning. A glycolic acid cleanser is another option and can help combat acne and ward-off signs of aging.

3. Vitamin A-Based Cream

The best dermatologist-recommended skincare routine includes a vitamin A-based cream that stimulates collagen, fights acne, diminishes fine lines, and offers potent anti-aging benefits.

4. Moisturizer

At this time, you can apply a moisturizer containing ceramides and hyaluronic acid to seal in moisture and increase skin hydration.
