Derm Drugstore Favorites – Where to Save on Skincare

By  | 

Unlike leather vs. pleather, quality compared to cost in the world of skincare is not always so clear-cut. Many drugstore brands incorporate the same ingredients (and extensive clinical testing) that their luxe-labeled counterparts use.

 

It can be hard for the untrained eye to identify these nuances and choose budget-friendly beauty that actually works.

 

Top dermatologist Rebecca Kazin, MD, FAAD, of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery and Johns Hopkins Department of Dermatology weighs in on where you can save without sacrificing your skin.

Here are her favorite drugstore buys…
