4 Dermatologist-Approved Ingredients You Need in Your Skin Care Routine

We are constantly confronted with a variety of products, treatments and more in our quest for healthy skin. It all comes down to the ingredients. You can make a product claim to be the cure-all. But if you are familiar with the ingredients, you will quickly spot the real powerhouses from the imitations. We wanted to share four major players in the skin care industry as recommended by Dr. Ashley Magovern – and why they should be on your ingredient list.

1. 1.

What Dr. Magovern has to say:

Alpha hydroxy acids are known for their ability to improve the appearance of skin, from removing discoloration caused by acne to reducing the appearance of dark spots and fine lines.

2. 2.

What Dr. Magovern has to say:

Anti-aging products often contain peptides, which are known for stimulating the production of collagen. This is important because it preserves the skin’s youthfulness and helps to make the skin appear firmer, tauter and smoother.

3. Vitamin C

Dr. Magovern’s words:

Vitamin C has been proven to be an effective antioxidant. It is easy to take and is well tolerated. Vitamin C has been shown to protect the skin cells and skin support structures from UV-related injury. This leads to collagen production, as well as improved skin appearance.

4. Retinol

Dr. Magovern’s words:

Retinol is a multitasking wonder that can balance oil production and unclog pores to improve skin health. It can also normalize skin’s turning over in patients suffering from psoriasis. It can even treat stubborn wrinkles for a better skin tone and radiance.
