Fact: A sign of adulthood is wondering whether it's actually worth it to spend more for an organic label on anything from your produce to your yoga towel. But what about when you're restocking on a skin-care staple you've been using since high school? After all, a 50-cent difference between two varieties of apples is no big deal, but in the world of trendy, eco-friendly skin care, swapping your go-to brand for an organic brand can sometimes translate to extra zeroes on your bill.

But just like researching your grocery list (shoutout to the dirty dozen) and knowing when to go organic and when to go the "whatever gets the job done" route, buying organic skin care requires some legwork ahead of time. Instead of relying on Google (which still doesn't have a med school degree, as far as we know), consider taking recommendations from these top dermatologists. They're dishing on their very favorite natural beauty products -- the serums, creams and oils they suggest to their patients and pals -- all without the hassle of calling to make an appointment.

To feel fresh or to cool down after a tough workout class, or just to have a hot second of Zen in the middle of a busy day, carry this dermatologist-recommended product in your bag. "I like [it] to set my makeup and spray as a refresher throughout the day," says dermatologist Dr. Dendy Engelman, MD. "It contains hypochlorous acid, which eliminates bacteria that may be sitting on the skin, [and] help[s] with breakouts and rapid aging from environmental aggressors. Plus, it is 100 percent all natural, using less than four ingredients," says Engelman.

Best All-Natural Moisturizer Under $10
Jason Smoothing Coconut Oil, $9.12

"This melts into your skin for deep moisturization, and is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial," says dermatologist Dr. Jessie Cheung, MD. "This is a great natural moisturizer for anyone suffering from eczema, as it helps to repair the skin barrier," she adds.
