    • Wipe Out Wrinkles with Sunscreen

      Amy Derick, M.D., dermatology instructor at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine

      Wipe out wrinkles with sunscreen: "The most important product for anti-aging is sunscreen," Dr. Derick says. "It blocks the UV rays that break down collagen and lead to fine lines and age spots."

      Her pick: La Roche-Posay Anthelios Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50 ($33.50) is a mineral sunscreen, but still manages to be cosmetically elegant; it blends easily into skin.

    • Blanket Skin in Moisture

      Mona Gohara, M.D., associate clinical professor of dermatology at Yale School of Medicine

      Blanket skin in moisture: “Starting in our late thirties to early forties, the skin begins to produce less oil and it gets dry and sullen, making fine lines more apparent, particularly around the eyes and on the hands,” Dr. Gohara says. “Moisturizing regularly can slow this natural aging process.”

      Her pick: Aveeno Skin Relief Healing Ointment ($7.89) contains colloidal oatmeal to reduce inflammation and moisturizers galore to leave skin supple and smooth.

    • Slough Away Flaky Skin

      Sonia Badreshia-Bansal, M.D., clinical instructor of dermatology at University of California, San Francisco

      Slough away flaky skin: “The older you get, the slower cell turnover becomes, causing a dull complexion,” Dr. Badreshia-Bansal says. “Using a facial scrub helps remove all of that dead skin.”

      Her pick: Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub ($5.99) is a beaded exfoliating wash that can be used a couple of times a week before bed. Just apply a little onto your fingertips and massage into damp skin. Rinse off to reveal a baby soft complexion.

    • Cleanse with Care

      Erin Gilbert, M.D., assistant professor of dermatology at SUNY Downstate

      Cleanse with care: “I’m obsessed with face wash that doesn’t strip skin of its natural oils and never leaves skin feeling dry, tight, or irritated,” Dr. Gilbert says.

      Her pick: Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser ($7.99) may not suds up much, but that’s what makes it so great. The moisture that you work so hard to maintain stays put, instead of being washed down the drain with grit and grime.

    • Treat While You Sleep

      Rachel Herschenfeld, M.D., dermatologist in Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts

      Treat while you sleep: "You can't really stop skin aging, but you can slow some changes, prevent others, and partially reverse the rest," says Dr. Herschenfeld. "Retinoids, which work best at night, are one of the most effective anti-aging ingredients."

      Her pick: RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream ($19.99) is made with retinol -- the over-the-counter version of the retinoid ingredient -- and can stimulate collagen formation and help even out skin tone.
