The Exact Skincare Routine You Need, Based on Your Skin Type

Walk down the skincare aisle at any drugstore, Sephora, or department store and you’ll see that choosing the right product is complicated enough. That is, without having to think about the specifics of your type of skin. Choose the wrong product and your skin can’t function at its best.

Dr. Rachel Nazarian of Schweiger Dermatology Group explains, “Basic skin types to consider when evaluating your skin are: dry, sensitive, and acne prone. Of course there are variations of these types, but this is a great place to start when looking for the right products. At the very least, focus on finding a great cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen.” In addition to tips from dermatologists, I chatted with knowledgeable editors and celebrity estheticians to find out the beauty routine that really works for each specific need. To say this is detailed is an understatement: Keep scrolling for every product you need, based on your skin type.
