Most celebs would have you believe that they “woke up like this,” boasting natural, flawlessly beautiful skin every day without any help. But in reality, most of them owe their gorgeously glowy skin, invisible pores and nonexistent wrinkles to celebrity dermatologists and the best skin care products available.
Do dermatologists favor only high-end skin care products or those available by prescription?
When we polled some of the top skin doctors with clients like Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham, we were surprised to find out that most celebs really are like us. These derms to the stars often recommend to their famous clientele high-quality skin care products bought over the counter at a local pharmacy or drugstore.
Are expensive skin care products worth the price?
According to the docs we interviewed, when it comes to quality and effectiveness, price isn’t really a factor. If it’s good, it’s good, no matter how cheap or expensive it may be. Welcome news to our already stretched beauty budgets.
What are the best drugstore skin care products recommended by dermatologists?
It actually runs the gamut from lotions to face washes to sunscreens (vital even in winter) and surprisingly, anti-itch cream. The docs also offered up some makeup suggestions for healthy ways to cover up imperfections. You may even already be using some of their favorite products — we counted several drugstore skin care picks we already have on hand.
Here are the most common brands on these derms’ shopping lists (with some earning multiple spots):
- La Roche-Posay
- L’Oréal Paris
- Burt’s Bees
