Must-Have Summer Skin Care

Great Recommendations From the Skin Sisters

How did the Skin Sisters start?

The Skin Sisters was born out of a desire to put high quality, science-based skincare information into the world. There are many bloggers out there sharing beauty information, but we aim to use our education (we are both Physician Assistants specialized in Dermatology) and clinical experience (over 20 combined years!) to provide the information that is difficult to find without a medical appointment. We started The Skin Sisters on Lauren's couch one evening in 2017, when our phones wouldn't stop dinging with skincare questions from friends & family. It was at that moment when we realized that there was a real thirst for knowledge out there and we had the unique ability to translate complex science into approachable information to help people make informed decisions about skincare and skin procedures. We felt that this helpful information shouldn't be reserved for only our close contacts, so we launched our public profile on Instagram that very same night.
