“Af­ford­able-yet-ef­fec­tive skin­care re­ally does ex­ist,” in­sists cos­metic der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr. Sam Bunt­ing. “Just re­mem­ber, the higher up the list an ac­tive in­gre­di­ent sits, the greater the quan­tity.” So, which ones should we be look­ing out for? Hyaluronic acid is a fave. Glyc­er­ine and sor­bitol are also great hy­drat­ing in­gre­di­ents. You can’t go wrong with vi­ta­mins A, B, C, and E, and Dr. Bunt­ing sings praises of niaci­namide (a form of vi­ta­min B) found in brands like Olay and Clin­ique. “UV con­trib­utes to eighty per­cent of skin ag­ing,” adds Dr. Bunt­ing, “but only three per­cent of women’s anti-ag­ing spend­ing goes to­ward SPF.” Skip pricey prod­ucts with gold par­ti­cles and col­la­gen (they’re too large to pen­e­trate the skin any­way), and just get pro­tected.
