If you’re a skincare junkie, you know how hard it is to separate fact from fiction when it comes to finding great products. As influencers advertise with sponsored posts, claiming that something they haven’t even tried changed their lives, and shelves are filled with new items every day, it can seem impossible to find products that truly transform our skin .

We understand how overwhelming skincare can be, so we’ve turned to the big guns. We know you can’t book an appointment with your dermatologist just to talk to them about their favorite products — the ones they trust enough to actually use themselves — so we did it for you.

We asked nine dermatologists about their favorite skincare product of all time, and they revealed which products they absolutely swear by — the one they’d pick if they were stranded on a desert island. The best part? They’re available over the counter everywhere, so they’re available to you without a prescription.

Some swear by a brand you’ve never heard of, others can’t live without a sunscreen you can buy from Amazon, and all mentioned noticeable changes in their skin since using these products. Your best skin ever has never been closer:

SkinBetter Science

AlphaRet® night cream

If I had to pick an all-time favorite skincare product, it would be SkinBetter’s AlphaRet Cream. It combines two essential skin rejuvenators – a retinoid and an AHA – in one product with little to no irritation. We know retinoids have many benefits, from boosting collagen production to treating acne, and lactic acid, an AHA, is a powerful exfoliator. I have noticed improvements in my skin texture, quality and brightness in just a few weeks of starting use. It’s now a regular part of my nightly routine.

biopelle

Exfoliating Gel Cleanser

This is one of the best exfoliating cleansers I’ve ever used. Glycolic Acid is a water-soluble AHA that removes dead skin with pigment, eliminates dark spots, unclogs pores and allows for better absorption of other skin care products. This cleanser can be very stinging on the skin, but after a few uses that goes away. I recommend it for people with acne and oily skin, but those with sensitive skin may find it too strong. (In this case, Cerave SA Salicylic Acid Cleanser is a better alternative and another one of my favorite BHA gentle exfoliating cleansers of all time.)

Good science beauty

003-Hy Moisturizing Face Cream

This is my absolute favorite moisturizer. It contains hyaluronic acid, which holds 1,000 times its weight in water and draws moisture into the skin, along with marine omega-3, a common fatty acid and essential nutrient that strengthens the skin’s lipid barrier and increases hydration. It’s a light, rich, non-greasy cream that absorbs well into the skin, leaving it looking smooth, plump and radiant.

Tizo

Photoceutical AM Replenish tinted sunscreen with SPF 40

Physical sunscreens with zinc oxide, which protect against UVA/UVB, are an absolute must if you have hyperpigmentation, but as a person with tan skin they can leave that dreaded white cast on your face. I love TIZO Photoceutical AM Replenish Lightly Tinted SPF 40 sunscreen with antioxidants that includes vitamins E, C and ceramides. It also contains Iron Oxide, an ingredient known to block visible/blue light that has been linked to hyperpigmentation in darker skin types. It’s a creamy and highly moisturizing sunscreen that doesn’t leave a white tinge on darker skin types.

ISDIN

Eryfotona Actinica Broad Spectrum 50+ SPF

If I could only use one product for the rest of my life, it would be 100% mineral SPF. An SPF is the cheapest way to slow down the skin aging process and protect your skin from skin cancer. My absolute favorite and must-have is ISDIN Eryfotona Actinica Broad Spectrum 50+ SPF. Not only does it contain antioxidants, but it is full of DNA repairsomes that repair the damage already caused by UV radiation.

Elta MD

UV Clear Face Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 46

[If I had to pick one skincare product, it would be] Hands down, Elta MD UV Clear. It’s a sunscreen, though [it is the] best anti-aging far and wide! It’s lightweight, non-greasy, easy to reapply and doesn’t sting my eyes or make me break out. [It has] SPF 46 where you want it to be – with fewer chemicals and higher levels of physical blockers. The sun is our greatest age, so everyone should have sunscreen as part of their beauty routine.

SkinCeuticals

CE Ferulic

My absolute favorite skin care product is Skinceuticals CE Ferulic. This is a cult favorite among dermatologists for so many reasons. It not only protects your skin but also cares for it at the same time. The powerful antioxidants prevent free radicals from damaging your skin and stop wrinkles in the bud. It also helps reduce brown spots and discoloration, so it’s a win-win! I use it every morning before applying my sunscreen.

SkinMedica

TNS Essential Serum

I love using a growth factor in my skincare routine. My first choice is SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum. It’s expensive, but it’s worth the investment. I use it morning and evening. I like it because it encourages our own skin cells to make new collagen, resulting in firmer, younger looking skin. Small things have a big impact!

Skin care overhaul

Intellishade matte tinted moisturizer

I tend to switch up my products every six months or so, but what I can’t live without right now is my Revision Skincare Matte Intellishade tinted moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF. It has good coverage, is matte and serves as a moisturizer and sunscreen. Love it!

color science

Sun-forgettable brush-on sun protection

My absolute favorite skincare product is Colorscience Sunforgettable Brush-On Sunscreen. I love this mineral-based brush-on sunscreen for quick, convenient sunscreen reapplication on the go!

I always carry one in my pocket and quickly sweep it over my face when it’s been more than two hours since my morning sunscreen application and I’m outside or near a window. UVA rays penetrate our car windows and contribute to skin aging in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, so I always apply it before driving home from work. It wears so well over makeup – there’s even a mattifying effect – so there’s no excuse not to reapply sunscreen to a full face with makeup!

Skin care overhaul

C+ correction complex 30%

My favorite product is Revision Skincare C+ Correcting Complex 30% Serum. I use it all over my face every morning and evening. It is the product with the highest vitamin C content in a serum, and it is very useful for lightening the skin and fading sun spots. Since I’ve been using it for the past few months, I’ve noticed an impressive and significant difference in my skin, even in the middle of summer and under sun exposure. I’m a fan for life!

Elta MD

UV Clear Face Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 46

I love using the Elta MD UV Clear sunscreen every morning. It protects against both UVA and UVB rays, thereby reducing the risk of photoaging and skin cancer. The UV Clear formula is oil-free and feels light on my skin; It’s a great option for people with sensitive skin prone to acne and rosacea. I can’t go a day without it!
