As the body’s largest organ, skin deserves some big love. But with a seemingly infinite number of serums, cleansers, and treatments out there, finding the right routine can feel daunting. Luckily, there’s no one correct way to practice skin care. Successful regimens can be as unique as our skin types. What rings true across the board is that like all good self-care, the right skin care for you will help you glow from the inside out.

“My skin-care routine helps me wind down and reminds me I am doing something for ‘me’ at the end of a long, busy day,” says the board-certified dermatologist Emily Wood, MD, who practices at Westlake Dermatology in Austin, Texas.

And practicing skin care as self-care doesn’t necessarily mean shelling out a fortune on luxury creams, either. While topical products can help treat certain conditions and give skin a boost, factors like diet, sleep, and sun protection are equally important to maintaining that healthy glow. “Pick a few high-quality products that have clinical studies and data behind them, that are really simple and easy to work into a routine,” advises Jessica Ackerman, a board-certified physician assistant with Dermatology and Aesthetics in Chicago.

Are you curious about how the pros take care of themselves? Below, board-certified dermatologists and a physician assistant share their own tried-and-true special skin-care practices.
