For most people, picking up your usual skin care products at a drugstore or supermarket is routine. You’ve likely found a brand of cleanser, moisturizer or serum that you like—and you’ve stuck with it! And while these largely popular skin care companies are trusted and backed by plenty of clinical trials, sometimes your skin needs a change.
Whether your typical products haven’t been providing the results you want, or you’re just ready for something new, our experts are here to share our favorite dermatologist-approved skin care products!
Avène: Sensitive Skin Care
Your skin continuously changes over time—just like you do! But have you noticed your skin becoming more sensitive and irritable?
Avène is a non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic product line dedicated to sensitive skin. If you’ve noticed certain products or even lifestyle choices affecting your complexion, these dermatologist-recommended products can help soothe and repair damage or irritation.
The Avène line creation starts back in 1736, with the discovery of thermal spring water in France. This water was found to have unique healing properties and was used to treat patients who suffered from atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and burns. In 1990, a full line of Avène skin care products was created, using thermal spring water as the key ingredient.
Now, dermatologic and aesthetic practices throughout the U.S. carry the Avène line, helping address several patients’ concerns such as acne, aging, redness, dehydration and of course, sensitive skin. Whether you need a special skin care treatment, or simply a new cleanser and moisturizer, Avène has a lot to offer for those with skin sensitivities.
SkinMedica®: Rejuvenation and Anti-Aging
Have you noticed the appearance of lines and wrinkles? While there’s no way to avoid aging, there are products that exist to help you combat the side effects.
SkinMedica® is a line of skin care products dedicated to skin rejuvenation and anti-aging. While your drugstore brand of products may have done you well over the years, it could be time for you to upgrade to something more specialized if you’re experiencing aging skin! And luckily, SkinMedica contains natural healing properties to enhance the look and feel of all skin types.
This science-based line was officially launched in 1999, starting with a moisturizer that improved smoothness and natural beauty by hydrating the skin. In 2000, the company issued a patent on TNS growth factor technology, or Tissue Nutrient Solution, which provided revolutionary aging defense. Since then, SkinMedica has released several products composed of TNS, antioxidants and peptides, helping rejuvenate the skin and diminish signs of aging.
Like Avène, SkinMedica has also been picked up by several dermatology and aesthetic practices, now addressing even more concerns such as skin pigmentation, acne and scars. SkinMedica offers targeted treatments for the face and body, as well as everyday products.
