7 Amazing Skin Care Brands Created by Dermatologists

Who understands what distinguishes great skin care better than actual dermatologists? Instead of experimenting with drugstore products that don’t specifically target your skin’s needs, your routine should include products created by these experts. When it comes to moisturizing, cleansing, exfoliating, and treating breakouts, no one can bring you better results than real doctors.

Throughout his years as a practicing dermatologist, Dr. Perricone conducted countless biopsies and, in the process, discovered inflammation consistently coincided with signs of aging. Feeling intrigued, he developed his own hypothesis, which asserts many skin diseases associated with aging are actually the result of inflammation. For two decades, Perricone studied the antioxidants that most powerfully combat inflammation. His findings were eventually turned into his apothecary-style skin care and makeup line, which is now widely adored. (You can find his range at your nearest Sephora).

4. Murad
