Slow the hands of time with these critical beauty and skincare products

Updated: December 10, 2015

There's no shortage of beauty and skincare products that claim to prevent wrinkles, sun damage, fine lines, or crow's feet. But it can be difficult to sift through all the information and separate fact from fiction. When it comes to beauty and skincare, what are the products you need (not want)? To find the answer, we enlisted the help of Dr. Gerald Imber, world-renowned plastic surgeon and author of The Youth Corridor and asked him to share his top three products for younger-looking skin. Here are the three beauty buys that should be in everyone's medicine cabinet:

1. Vitamin C antioxidant serum. Vitamin C is critical for reversing sun damage, erasing wrinkles, building collagen, and evening out skin tones. "Vitamin C is acknowledged as the best of the topical antioxidants," Dr. Imber says. "Studies show that the combination of vitamin C, E, and melatonin is far more effective than any other combination. Knowing this, I have formulated Youth Corridor Antioxidant Boost 2.0 for my patients. Patients have seen clearer, younger skin in weeks-I am devoted to the combination."

2. Moisturizer with sunscreen. There's no excuse for not applying sunscreen. Period. The key is an elegant moisturizer sunblock combination that feels good to use, according to Dr. Imber. Look for a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF-any lower, and you're wasting your time, Dr. Imber says.

3. An exfoliating product such as alpha hydroxy acid. "Lactic acid is a good choice because it has moisture-retaining properties and results in less drying and flaking," Dr. Imber says.

Gerald Imber, M.D. Is a world renowned plastic surgeon, author, and anti-aging expert. His book The Youth Corridor was largely responsible for changing the way we deal with aging and beauty.

Dr. Imber has developed and popularized less invasive procedures such as microsuction and the limited incision-short scar facelift, and has been a strong proponent of self help and education. He is the author of numerous scientific papers and books, is on the staff of the Weill-Cornell Medical College, the New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and directs a private clinic in Manhattan.
