Whether you take a minimal approach when it comes to a beauty routine, or devour any kind of skincare and makeup advice you can get your hands on, one thing remains universal.

For the most part, we’ve got the basics covered by making sure our daily routine consists of drinking enough water, washing our face before bed, and doing our best to avoid anything toxic that might frustrate our pores.
While innovation is a beautiful thing, it seems these days there’s always a new ingredient, technique, or product on the scene with a bevy of skincare tips to go along with it.
Seeing as taking care of our skin ranks fairly high on our to-do list, we reached out to several top dermatologists and estheticians to take a deeper look into all the advice and time-tested information they’ve learned throughout their careers.

“Avoid the sun, and when you can’t avoid it, wear sunscreen and a hat. I swear by Coolibar sun-protective clothing and Colorescience’s Sunforgettable Total Protection Brush-On Shield SPF 50.” — Elizabeth Tanzi, MD, founder, and director of Capital Laser & Skin Care
“One of my best skincare tips is to use a sunscreen containing anti-inflammatory and barrier-repairing ingredients. A broad-spectrum sunscreen with both UVA and UVB protection of at least SPF 30 is best. I recommend Epionce Ultra Shield Lotion SPF 50 every day—even during non-summer months.” — Carl Thornfeldt, MD
“You have to get a full-body skin exam by a dermatologist by the time you turn 30. It’s important to have expert eyes take a look at any moles you may have and be able to follow them for changes in the future.
