At DermSkincare, a team of trusted dermatologists has taken time to painstakingly choose the highest quality, most clinically studied skincare products that are loved and recommended by our professionals and patients alike. Even the best skincare products won’t live up to the hype if they’re not used correctly. In this blog, we’ll talk through some basic skincare tips and recommendations for choosing the right skincare products for your skincare routine.

General Skincare Recommendations

The most important aspect of any skincare routine is consistency. Even the best skincare routine takes time to be effective, so it’s important to stick with it. Additionally, changing skincare products frequently can trigger flare-ups in chronic skin conditions, allergic responses, and general irritation, especially for those with sensitive skin. You should also keep the following tips in mind:

  • Follow instructions on the skincare products as well as any specific care recommendations from your dermatologist when incorporating anything new into your skincare routine.
  • A little bit goes a long way with skincare products. Over-application can lead to clogged pores, oily skin, and uneven skin tone or texture.
  • The exception to that application recommendation is sunscreen. People usually need to apply more sunscreen than they do. For a full application on the face, neck, chest, arms, and legs, you should use about one ounce (a shot glass full) of sunscreen. You may need more or less depending on your clothing coverage. Most sunscreens also need to be reapplied at least every two hours.
  • Make sure you’re using products at the right time of day. Specifically, morning skincare products should be protective and preventive. You want to reduce sun damage and other environmental irritants. Evening skincare products should be soothing, healing, and restorative, renewing your skin after a long day.
  • Apply products from thinnest to thickest in texture. This allows the thinner products to fully absorb.


For most people, the same gentle cleanser can be used as part of their morning and evening skincare routine. The cleansers we offer at DermSkincare are all dermatologist-recommended products. While they may be formulated for a specific skincare need, all of our products have been reviewed by dermatologists who understand skincare needs, and many of the available cleansers are multi-purpose and gentle enough for most skin types.

Anti-Aging Serums

As we age, skin becomes thinner, skin cells turnover more slowly, and collagen and elastin production slow. These changes impact the skin, leading to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, sagging skin, and other signs of aging. To slow down this process and keep skin looking youthful and healthy longer, you should rely on anti-aging skincare products. These products are typically designed to address the causes of skin aging. For instance, deep moisturizers may be recommended to repair and strengthen the skin’s natural protective barrier, so even thinner skin retains moisture well and stays smooth and healthy. Anti-aging products with active ingredients like alpha-hydroxy acid, beta-hydroxy acid, and lactic acid increase skin cell turnover, to remove dead skin cells and reveal healthy skin below. This improves skin tone and texture and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Other products can stimulate collagen and elastin production to keep skin tighter, prevent sagging, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Eye Treatments

The skin around the eyes is much more sensitive than that on the rest of the face, and it requires unique skincare products to ensure health. From improving dark circles and puffiness to preventing fine lines and wrinkles, a good eye treatment can deliver a range of benefits to keep you looking and feeling your best.


Whether you have dry skin or you’re struggling with oily and acne-prone skin, moisturizer is an essential ingredient in every skincare routine. Applying moisturizer regularly keeps skin hydrated, but it also prevents the overproduction of the body’s natural sebum oils, which can lead to oiliness and acne breakouts. In the morning, a lightweight moisturizer is usually sufficient. In the evenings, a thicker, cream-based moisturizer will help to restore hydration lost during the day and allow the skin to heal and regenerate overnight.

Skin Redness & Rosacea

If you’ve been diagnosed with rosacea or you have generally red-toned skin, you may feel self-conscious about the way your skin looks. Using the right skincare products can help to reduce the appearance of skin redness and rosacea. The goal of many of these products is to create a bright skin tone. Others are designed to reduce discoloration. You’ll also find sunscreens on this list as skin redness and rosacea can be worsened through sun exposure.


Retinols are some of the most popular treatment products. Derived from vitamin A, retinols are formulated to boost skin cell turnover by dissolving dead skin cells and stimulating a healing response. By removing dead skin cells, retinols also offer anti-aging benefits as they diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the overall skin tone and texture.


Antioxidants prevent future skin health and appearance issues before they begin. Antioxidants are formulated to protect skin from the sun, pollutants, and other environmental stressors. Numerous antioxidant ingredients have proven beneficial to the skin. Vitamin C is one of the most popular antioxidant ingredients, but there are many beneficial antioxidant skincare products that include a variety of active ingredients like vitamins A and E, zinc, and flavonoids. Using antioxidants combined with sunscreen each day can significantly reduce the risk for all sun-related forms of skin damage, keeping skin looking younger and healthier for years to come.

Skin Rejuvenation

The sun’s ultraviolet rays, infrared radiation, blue light, allergens, irritants, and other environmental stressors damage skin every day. Luckily, there are numerous options for skin rejuvenation that heal after damage. From diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to renewing skin health and boosting the results of dermatologic treatment, rejuvenation skincare leaves skin looking and feeling its very best. The rejuvenation products available at DermSkincare are formulated to restore and preserve optimal skin health for every skin type.


It’s no secret that sunlight damages the skin, but these days, we all have more than sunlight to contend with. Research has shown that blue light from our cell phones, computers, and other screens can also contribute to the acceleration of skin aging and the development of dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. Infrared radiation from warm and very cold objects can also cause skin concerns. For this reason, sunscreen has its work cut out for it. We offer many sunscreens that protect against damaging light emissions from a variety of sources including sunlight, blue light, and infrared radiation.
