Hey there! 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. 🤔
Only when I began to investigate my skin mysteries like a full-time detective, searching (medical) evidence for clues, did I finally turn my
skin life around.
Now, I help readers like you Solve Your Skin Mystery!
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.
Eventually, I solved my skin mysteries with science and lots of trial-and-error.
Now, more than a decade later, I'm finally acne-free! (but still have scars)
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-first treatment options.
Together, let's Solve Your Skin Mystery! 🕵️♂️
