I’m a dermatologist—an expert in everything skin, hair and nails. So why do I have heart palpitations when I walk down the skin care aisle at CVS? Is it just me, or has there been an explosion of new beauty products lately?  Often times it’s impossible to really know how well a certain product does what it says it will do and where it’ll fit within your skin care regimen . Cosmeceuticals (over the counter cosmetic skin care products ) are not really regulated (they don’t need to be) and they don’t have to show us their efficacy studies or how well a certain ingredient in their formulation penetrates the skin, or how active their ingredients are. Most dermatologists feel like there are certain categories of products that are important. These are the skin care pillars, if you will: Retinoids, Antioxidants , Growth Factors, Peptides , Alpha or Beta Hydroxy Acids (think glycolic or salicylic acid)-oh, and of course sunscreen .  You don’t have to use them all at once (but if you’d like to, you can)
