5 Cheap Skincare Products Dermatologists Swear By

October 13, 2016 by Lisa Fogarty

Ever notice that the products found at your dermatologist's office usually come in the least ornate packaging imaginable? Experts who really know skincare understand that the amount of money a brand spends on marketing a product (and making it pretty) very rarely has anything to do with the quality of the ingredients used to provide the most effective results. Good skincare products can be expensive--or completely affordable. The key is knowing which ingredients can actually make a difference in the texture and health of your skin, and which are luxury fillers.

We asked Dr. Estee Williams, a dermatologist in New York City, to let us in on 5 cheap skincare products dermatologists swear are every bit as incredible as their expensive counterparts. Here's your chance to get amazing skin and save a few (hundred) dollars.

Neutrogena Natural Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen

Don't bother investing in anti-aging serums if you aren't going to follow every dermatologist's number one rule: use sunscreen. Every single day. "This is one of the very few moisturizing sunscreens for the face that consists of only mineral sunscreen (zinc and titanium) without chemical sunscreens," Williams says. "So for those who like to avoid the latter, this is definitely a great daily multi-tasker. The sun is a major age accelerator and sunscreen should be worn 365 days a year".

Eau Thermale Avene Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Makeup Remover

If you have dry or sensitive skin, you know how difficult it is to find a cleanser that doesn't irritate your skin. This one hits a homerun in more than one way. "This is a great 3-in-1 cleanser, makeup remover and toner that tends to satisfy even those with the most sensitive skin and gets off even waterproof makeup," Williams says.

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

The best way to prevent an eczema breakout is to shield your skin with a hydrating lotion that isn't loaded with chemicals that can aggravate sensitive skin. "I take care of a lot of patients with eczema and find that this product really helps restore a normal skin barrier," Williams says. "I like to alternate it with coconut or sunflower seed oil especially in the winter months."

DermEnd Moisturizing Bruise Formula

It can take weeks or even months for skin bruises to clear up, but those lotion helps minimize your recovery time. "This is a go-to to speed up the healing of any bruise, be it from trauma or after Botox and filler injections," Williams says. "I recommend this to all my cosmetic patients. Just apply it twice daily to the bruise to speed up healing. For older patients with mature skin who easily bruise on the arms (known as senile purpura!), this is a perfect daily moisturizer. With retinol, vitamins K and B3, arnica and ceramides, Dermend packs a punch and is more than just a bruising formula."

Avene Retrinal 0.1 Cream

Doctor-prescribed Retin-A is one of the only proven effective anti-aging ingredients, but it can also be extremely irritating to the skin. If you have sensitive skin, a retinoid could be the perfect compromise. "Retinoids exfoliate, fade spots, reverse sun damage and are anti-aging," Williams says. "I like the consistency of this over-the-counter retinoid. Results are gradual and the product is very tolerable. Worth trying even if you couldn't tolerate Retin-A back in high school."
