The Best Skin Products According to Dermatologists | CNN

Unlike fashion, the beauty industry relies on a mix of marketing, trends, and real science to keep you looking your best.

And while it can feel very luxurious to spend a lot of money on a skincare product, sometimes the best product for you is not the one with the highest price.

"You don't have to spend a lot of money on skin care products," confirms Dr. Elyse M. Love, noting that most dermatologists use drugstore products in their own skin care routines.

Still, the reasons behind triple-digit costs vary widely: 'Sometimes it's because an ingredient is difficult to formulate, sometimes it's because the product has undergone extensive clinical testing, sometimes it's because the product delivers an ingredient. active with less irritation, and sometimes it's purely marketing.

We're all in favor of indulging, but it helps to know when you need to drop some money on a product, and when the more affordable option will work just as well.

"Certain ingredients like botanical extracts and antioxidants like vitamin C tend to cost more, so many products that contain these ingredients are more expensive," says Dr. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in the Department of Dermatology at the Mount Sinai Hospital.

He regularly recommends brands like Aquaphor and Cetaphil, which he says are staple brands for many dermatologists.

"There are many products available right at your local pharmacy that can perform as well if not better than the competition, which cost twice the amount," he says.

Go ahead and take a look at the affordable under $ 20 skincare products that dermatologists recommend by name.
