About The Detective


Who Is The Detective?

Hi, I’m Tom, the author of The Derm Detective.

For years, I struggled with skin issues like acne, scars, and hyperpigmentation.

I tried all the “tips and tricks” on the Internet, including hundreds of products.

Some of them worked. Most of them didn’t.

It wasn’t until I started analyzing the medical research that I began to see results.

Now, I help my readers get the facts on skincare to Solve Your Skin Mystery!

My Story

I’ve had skin problems for as long as I can remember.

Like most people, I started getting pimples in my early teens.

Unfortunately, it never went away and only got worse.

For most of high school, my face was covered by painful cystic acne.

I eventually solved my skin problems with science and lots of trial-and-error.

Now, more than a decade later, I’m finally acne-free! (but still have many scars)

Through my experience, I’ve learned that “beauty is more than skin deep”.

My Mission

Trying to figure out your skin problems can feel like a full-time private eye job.

That’s why I started The Derm Detective to take the mystery out of skincare.

I investigate the latest medical research and clinical studies to provide you with simple, science-based treatment options.
