Cleanser

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser — $28.00

No matter what type of skin you have, you truly can’t go wrong with a gentle cleanser. Using something non-soap, non-active, and pH balanced will help you avoid stripping your skin barrier, which helps keep the entire system functioning optimally. Dr. Gohara recommends washing your face with a “pH neutral gentle cleanser, so it actually keeps your skin barrier healthy,” and our editors all swear by this one for use on their own skin. It functions as a three-in-one to remove makeup, wash away impurities, and tone skin, and is formulated with amino acids to keep that barrier strong.

Drunk Elephant C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum — $80.00

“This serum delivers a trifecta of antioxidants to the skin,” Joshua Zeichner, MD, a board-certified dermatologist based in New York City previously told Well+Good. It’s got vitamin C, vitamin E, and ferulic acid, which brighten skin and protect it from the elements without causing dryness or irritation. Considering an antioxidant serum should be a part of everyone’s a.m. routine, this heavy hitter—at a discounted price, no less—is a great pick.

Moisturizer

Summer Fridays Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream Moisturizer — $42.00

With warm weather (and, inevitably, the oily skin that comes with it) around the corner, it’s the perfect time to swap your heavy winter moisturizer for one with a lightweight, gel-cream texture. “Any skin type can benefit from gel-cream moisturizers for protection and hydration,” Naissan Wesley, MD, a board-certified dermatologist, previously told Well+Good. “Gel-cream textures, as long as they do not contain ingredients that cause drying, are particularly soothing to inflamed, burning skin, like in rosacea, for sunburn, or after certain laser procedures. In combination with the right ingredients, they can also be applied to oily acne-prone skin without making it feel too oily or greasy.”

Exfoliant

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel — $88.00

These two-for-one peel pads are beloved by dermatologists and beauty editors alike (in fact, every single member of our team swears by them). They combine alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids into a two-step system. The first step exfoliates and peels, while the second step acts as an anti-aging neutralizer. “Beta-hydroxy acids go deeper into the pores and are great for acne, oily skin, and brightening, and alpha-hydroxy acids are good for superficial exfoliation,” says Shirley Chi, MD, a California-based dermatologist. “So when they’re used together, you get more exfoliation and brightening than when used alone.”

Retinol

Shani Darden Skin Care Retinol Reform — $88.00

If board-certified dermatologist Mona Gohara, MD’s, house was on fire, she’d first save her family… and then she’d grab her retinol. Retinol is known to be a powerhouse for solving all sorts of skin issues, including acne, discoloration, and signs of aging, thanks to the fact that it helps to stimulate cellular turnover. This cult-fave serum, designed by A-list esthetician Shani Darden, combines non-irritating, encapsulated retinol with exfoliating lactic acid and antioxidant-packed apple fruit extract. It’s well loved by celebrities and shoppers alike for delivering a smoother, brighter, and all-around more even complexion .
