About Skin Careless

I know what it’s like to feel lost and overwhelmed with my skin.

I started this science-based skin care resource as a passion project over two years ago. It began as a way to share everything I’d personally learned through experiencing my own struggles with my skin and subsequently having to navigate the huge world of products and services out there. For the record, my experience includes: acne, fungal acne, eczema, seborrhoeic dermatitis, vitiligo and more.

From there, I developed an obsession with skin care and absorbing all the knowledge I could. And based on what I found, I knew that I needed to have my say.  I found that most of the skin care resources out there were superficial and biased, or too dense and scientific for a beginner.

Thanks to that experience, I know what real beginners need and want to learn. I decided that skin care doesn’t have to be this mysterious, murky world of buzzwords anymore.

Now, I’m still making my way along my own skin journey, trying out all sorts of new products and treatments and having a great time doing it!

The Skin Careless difference

So many voices in the skin care world give advice and promote their products with the same confusing language like ‘toxins‘, ‘impurities‘ and rejuvenate‘. These tactics are in the hopes of keeping you uninformed and making more sales. It makes you feel like truly understanding skin is out of your reach, and that they know what’s best and you need to blindly follow their advice. That’s not what I’m about.

On Skin Careless, I dive deep into how the skin works and interacts with the world, teach you to apply that knowledge to your own unique situation, and guide you to the right ingredients and products for YOU. Reaching your goals is all about undoing bad habits and bad attitudes and relearning the right way. To help you get there, I offer everything from simple, personalised routines and unbiased product suggestions, through to detailed ingredient breakdowns and product reviews.
