For the ultimate, expert-vetted skin-care routine, look no further than your local drugstore.

When Real Simple challenged seasoned dermatologists to design tip-top skin-care routines using mostly drugstore products, it wasn’t much of a challenge at all. Turns out, the aisles are packed with effective-yet-affordable formulas that beget healthy skin. Layer on one (or two) specialty products the dermatologists swear by, throw away a few superfluous items that you thought you needed (but don’t!), and your regimen is complete.

Dry or sensitive skin typically has barrier issues, which is why moisture is hard to hold on to and irritants are more likely to get in. Therefore it can become easily inflamed. So it’s important to be cautious and use only a handful of products that are effective but gentle. Less is truly more. (You’re welcome.)
