Let’s face it: Everyone is searching for the best facial treatments for their particular skin type—the kind that will leave their skin looking absolutely fabulous. Depending on your skin’s needs (dry, oily, acne-prone), that can mean a few different things. Regardless, while testing products for this year’s Healthy Beauty Awards, there is one buzzword that our expert panel of derms mentioned over and over again: hydration. More moisture means softer, smoother, and more supple skin. Who doesn’t want that?
Armed with a checklist of derm-approved criteria, we gathered the latest in skin care, from toners to serums to spot treatments, and had our at-home testers put these products through their paces to see which ones performed and which ones fell flat. And if you’re looking for the best facial treatments for your particular skin-care needs, we’ve got you covered. These 13 products below emerged as the best of the best, each snagging high praise and a 2020 SELF Healthy Beauty Award.
