For many of us, it takes a team of specialists to ensure we look our best. We have our stylist for our favorite cut and color, a manicurist for perfect nails, and an aesthetician for unwanted body hair. And if we’re smart, we see a skilled dermatologist for our skin health. But optimal skincare is so much more than scheduling a routine visit to your nearest spa or salon. It’s also about maintaining your beauty routine from home.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Douglas Key and his team created this helpful list of home treatments to keep your skin looking young and radiant.

Regardless of whether you’re running five miles a day or spending endless hours on the couch binge-watching Netflix, your skin needs moisture to stay full and healthy. This practice requires hydrating your skin from within and without.

Your skin requires water to remain taut and full. Here are some products we recommend that can help hydrate your skin at the surface by retaining skin moisture.

Here are some products we find useful in protecting your skin every day.
