Follow these TikTok dermatologists for reliable skincare advice
Skincare has become huge on social media during the past few years. While YouTube was originally the main platform for "skinfluencers," many of them have migrated over to TikTok where we now see people try out all different kinds of tips and tricks. Eyedrops on pimples, mini pore vacuums, toothpaste facials—you name it, someone on TikTok has probably tried it. However, not everyone on the app is qualified to give reliable skincare advice. If you want to make sure you're learning tips from people who are the real deal, these are five certified dermatologists on TikTok who can give you sound advice about general skincare (and *lots* of reminders to reapply sunscreen).

Dr. Alexis Stephens - @dralexisstephens
