If I had to give one piece of advice, it would not to over-cleanse or exfoliate. Sunscreen and moisturizer on the daily!”


What started my interest in skincare was that I had acne as a teen and nothing worked! At the time I had just started my degree in biochemistry and didn’t understand my skin. So now I take a scientific approach to skincare and it’s the best thing I could have done for my skin!”


“Less is more. A skincare routine doesn’t have to be complicated to be effective. This is especially important when just starting out.”

Dermatologist Specialist (PA-C)

My skincare tip is…prevention is the best medicine! Prevent sun damage, wrinkles, acne, rosacea, eczema flare ups and more with SPF through out the day. Not wearing SPF negates any benefits you would get from other skincare ingredients.”

Board Certified Dermatologist

“Find what is right for your skin, then be patient and consistent rather than follow trends. Remember that results from skincare take time.


“Give it at least 6 weeks before you say you love it or hate it. It takes that long to know.”

If I had to give one piece of advice, keep your routine as minimal as possible and respond to what your skin is telling you.”

I got into skincare thanks to my mom! She’s a dermatologist who took an interest in active ingredients before they were mainstream. What fueled my interest was the mis-skin-formation out there, and I enjoyed filtering through the skincare hype for my followers and patients.”

Dr. Elli (Philippines)

The advice is true, ‘ you are what you eat!’ Don’t expect flawless skin if you eat junk food on the daily. The simple science is that sugar increases inflammation and that can harm your skin!”

My skincare tip is always start a new product gradually. Do patch tests and take time to see how your skin reacts!”
