Whether you need a break in between meetings or you’re winding down for the evening, TikTok remains a great mental escape. You can find a little bit of everything — humor, news updates, funny pets, sweet newborn babies, home decor ideas, and our personal favorite: skincare advice.
We soak up anything-and-everything related to healthy, radiant skin, and we like to turn to the experts for their insights. In addition to following our co-founder Emily DiDonato for her skin tips, check out these ten inspiring and informative skincare TikTokers.
1. Dr. Shah
This professional dermatologist shares all his tips and tricks from a perspective you can trust. He covers practical skincare areas from how to gently cleanse your face to exact instructions on how to remove ticks. And, of course, he also makes fantastic TikTok reaction videos everyone loves. And by everyone, we mean a lot: he has over 9 million followers and counting.
Truly, this male skincare Tiktoker influencer is absolutely hilarious. Not only does he have the standard skincare tips and tricks everyone loves, he does unique things too. Recently he did a face mask with breast milk (yep, breast milk.) And he shared a demonstration of why you need to wash your hands thoroughly before washing your face. All his videos have humor sprinkled throughout, and we can’t get enough.
3. Charlotte Palermino
As a co-founder of Diuex and licensed esthetician, Charlotte Palermino calls herself “your skincare fairy godmother.” She has amazing, practical tips and advocates for sunscreen as a part of your daily routine. She’s known for diving deep into clinical studies and simplifying the facts about skincare ingredients. Charlotte also takes complex technical topics in the skincare world — like sunscreen filters — and makes them easy enough for the average skincare enthusiast to understand. Her evidence-based approach is refreshing in a world full of hauls and sponsored opinions.
4. Cassandra Bankson
If you enjoy playing devil’s advocate, you’ll love Charlotte Bankson. She is a medical esthetician who loves debunking the myths surrounding the beauty industry. She also does comprehensive reviews of products while also embracing the fun trends circulating TikTok feeds.
5. Dr. Alexis
Dr. Alexis Stephens is a professional female dermatologist on a mission to bring educated information to the masses with her TikTok videos. She also provides many skin care tips for those with darker skin. We love her innovative attitude and simple approach that’s super easy to understand.
6. Dr. Howard
If you prefer direct and blunt advice, this female dermatologist doesn’t sugarcoat her perspective. If you want your skincare influencers to be knowledgeable and to the point, this is the one. Plus: she crams a ton of information in short videos.
7. Ben Neiley
To put it lightly, Ben Neiley is obsessed with all-things-skincare and health. The only thing he loves more than trying new formulas is sharing his vast knowledge with his growing fanbase. We love that he’s not afraid to go against the crowd and say what he doesn’t like about popular products. Plus, he gives helpful tips on how to tackle your own skincare issues — from acne to inflammation.
8. Dr. Joyce
Do you enjoy hearing the tea? Warm up your kettle and settle in for a long viewing party with Dr. Joyce. As a Stanford NYU-trained dermatologist, she brings her professional opinion to TikTok to save us all from making unhealthy, trendy mistakes. She makes educated skincare knowledge practical and accessible.
