Here are 7 skin doctors to follow on Instagram for advice that works

From YouTube newbies to Instagram biggies, everyone is doling out skincare advice like pros. Some are asking you to apply lemon and toothpaste to your face (please DON’T), while others are describing a litany of chemically-loaded products that have worked for them. If you’re taking your skincare tips randomly off the internet, STOP!

Skin-related issues can stem from a variety of reasons– they can be hormonal, gastro-intestinal, stress-induced, or caused by seasonal changes. Depending on your skin type and the nature of your problem, the treatment varies too. While retinol might suit your best friend, arbutin might be a better product for you. Even two people with similar skin types can have varying skincare routines.

If you’re looking to follow a skincare influencer for your regular dose of tips and tricks, listen to the professionals. We chalked out a list of the best skincare docfluencers on Instagram, so your skin gets nothing but the best.
