Your Most Annoying Skin Problems, Solved

For spring, we’re running a series showcasing the skincare products of our most-loved beauty influencers and what they’re buying at Sephora. Each week, we’re sending one of our favorite gurus to their local store to document their entire shopping spree on Byrdie’s Snapchat. Make sure to tune in each Saturday to follow along, and check back here monthly to see (and shop!) the items that made it into their Sephora carts. Enjoy.

While most people are aware of their skin concerns, it can be hard to find products to target those concerns. But what if it could be as simple as knowing which tried-and-true ingredient to use to tackle your problem areas? Well, if we had to narrow in on specific ingredient families, it’d include retinoids (targets wrinkles), AHAs (minimizes the appearance of pores), antioxidants (helps with first signs of aging), and, of course, vitamin C (improves skin dullness). As countless studies have confirmed, these are some of the best topical ingredients on the market, and the beauty professionals and devotees we talk to week in and week out agree.

But one thing to note is that not all products are created equal. If you’re looking to prevent first signs of aging, you may need a different product than someone trying to tackle deep wrinkles, for example. And that’s why we’re turning to four beauty gurus to help you narrow down your search. Dullness? Enlarged pores? First signs of aging? Wrinkles? Byrdie’s news editor, Victoria Hoff, and beauty vloggers Deepica Mutyala, Melissa Alatorre, and Rachel Nguyen have got you covered. Today they’re sharing their must-have spring product picks from Sephora to tackle some of the most annoying skin concerns.
