The beauty industry keeps turning out new skincare products faster than we could ever keep up. With so many options, how can you ever know which products will actually work and which are just a waste of money?

That’s where the professionals come in. No one is better to ask for skincare product recommendations than a dermatologist. To help sort through the noise and find the real gems of the beauty industry, we rounded up four important ingredients that should be in all of your skincare products.

retinol

Amarte Eyeconic Eye Cream ($80)

1. Retinol

If wrinkles are a concern of yours, you should be using products with retinol. "Retinol is a retinoid that enhances skin's radiance and is considered to be a skin revitalizer. Retinol is one of the most effective cosmetic antiaging ingredients and is scientifically proven, via rigorous studies, to improve conditions associated with chronological aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. It alters the behavior of aged cells so they act in a more youthful manner, and stimulates the production of new blood vessels in the skin while improving skin tone. Useful in the management of acne, rosacea, oily skin, and actinic keratosis, retinol also helps decrease skin damage associated with UV exposure," said Dr. Craig Kraffert, board-certified dermatologist and president of Amarte.

Vitamin Cfresh Vitamin C Glow Moisturizer ($42)

2. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is the perfect skincare ingredient for women of all ages! Products containing it can help you glow, literally. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that stimulates collagen production, evening out spots and smoothing surface texture for an overall radiant look.

When shopping for products containing this skincare ingredient, it’s best to look for vitamin C in high concentrations. It packs more of a punch!

peptides

The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA 30ml ($20.73)

3. Peptides

Peptides are a newer skincare ingredient that are growing rapidly in popularity as people learn of their amazing benefits. “Think of peptides as Legos in the building of a Lego city; they are protein building blocks," says Dr. Hirsch.

Peptides boost collagen production and mimic the anti-aging effect of Botox by improving the elasticity of your skin. If you’re in your thirties, Peptides are a good ingredient to start including in your skincare routine to keep your skin feeling firm.

hyaluronic acid

Youth To The People Superfood Air-Whip Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Cream ($48)

4. Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is great in skincare products for intense hydration. The ingredient attracts and retains water for long-lasting nourishment and hydration. Whether you have dry skin or are looking to plump your complexion, Hyaluronic Acid is the right product to use.

"The beauty of hyaluronic acid is that it doesn't have any fine print," tells Dr. Hirsch to Glamour. "It benefits any skin type, at any age. And the truth is that everyone looks great with hydrated skin."
