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

Gabby

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!”

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.”

The best advice I can give is simplicity! Keeping your skincare routine simple and tailored to your skin’s needs is definitely the secret. Sticking to just a few key ingredients and products rather than a bunch of random products will be way more beneficial!”

Dr. Mara (Philippines)
@dermomtology
Dermatologist

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.”

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!”

Meg (Philippines)
@drmegsison

One thing to keep in mind is skincare is a personal journey! Each of us have different skin types and concerns, so our skin won’t react in the same way. So don’t feel bad if a hyped up skincare product doesn’t do much for your skin.”
