SKIN SAVERS

Prevention (USA) - - WELLNESS -

TO BAN­ISH BREAK­OUTS

A sal­i­cylic acid acne treat­ment helps kill blem­ish-fos­ter­ing bac­te­ria and pre­vent flare-ups.

PREVEN­TION PICK:

Al­may Clear Com­plex­ion Blem­ish Ar­mor, $12, ulta.com

TO SMOOTH WRIN­KLES

The gold-stan­dard anti-ag­ing in­gre­di­ent retinol in­creases skin cell turnover, which prompts col­la­gen pro­duc­tion to soften fine lines; ap­ply on clean skin ev­ery evening, as the ac­tive in­gre­di­ent can de­grade when ex­posed to light.

PREVEN­TION PICK:

Neu­tro­gena Rapid Wrin­kle Re­pair Retinol Oil, $28, drug­stores

TO STRENGTHEN SKIN

“Acne, eczema, and pso­ri­a­sis—which all can be pro­voked by stress—weaken skin’s outer layer, caus­ing mois­ture to es­cape and in­creas­ing sen­si­tiv­ity,” Dr. Wechsler says. For­tify skin by smooth­ing on a cream with ce­ramides (com­po­nents of its bar­rier) in the morn­ing and evening.

PREVEN­TION PICK:

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream, $52, peter thomas­roth.com

TO FIGHT IN­FLAM­MA­TION

Layer on a con­cen­trated form of vi­ta­min C—a pow­er­ful antioxidan­t—in the morn­ing be­fore your mois­tur­izer to fight off in­flam­ma­tory free rad­i­cals, which can in­ter­fere with the pro­duc­tion of skin-plump­ing col­la­gen.

PREVEN­TION PICK:

L’Oréal Paris Re­vi­talift Derm In­ten­sives 10% Pure Vi­ta­min C Con­cen­trate, $30, drug­stores
