5 Asian Dermatologists You Should Follow for Glowing Skin ✨
Because skincare is the best form of self-love
In 2021, there’s no doubt that glowing skin is in. Being almost a year into quarantine and wearing masks in public places, it’s been becoming more normal to rock a bare-face (& inevitable maskne) on most days. Embracing natural beauty is on the rise, and so are skinfluencers all over Instagram and Tiktok. In a sea of “skinfluencers,” there may be a lot of different information spreading around social media that may leave us even more confused about what’s “right” or “wrong” for our skin. Jade rollers? Witch hazel? Microbeads? What does the dermatologist think?
Here are 5 Asian dermatologists that bring skin and science together to help you be more informed & practice the best self care habits for your skin!
