Empowering Skin Confidence

Meet Dr. Brandith Irwin

Many people have asked me how I got interested in skin in the first place.  I grew up in a small, rainy, lumber town in southwest Washington State – a lot like the town in the Twighlight books and movies (Forks, Washington).  Ok, it was a little bigger than that but not much!

Like most teenagers, I would fry my skin in summer when we had sun, and had the usual acne problems.  Later on, I was too busy studying to spend much time outside in the sun.  In medical school, I thought at first that cardiology and neurosurgery were the most interesting, but then did a dermatology elective and realized that the skin is an amazingly complex and versatile organ.  And even more, you can see it…which means you can tell more easily what is happening when you are treating it.

Since that time, it has only gotten more interesting because not only do we know more about skin diseases and skin health, but the technology to improve skin has exploded.  It makes for an ever-changing skin landscape which is always interesting to me.  I hope you enjoy SkinTour!

Skincare is your best investment

Skintour's Philosophy

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare.

Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products.

You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products.

Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost.

Are they worth it? In general - yes!

"My goal is not to become a big, sprawling site, but to have the best, most trustworthy, unbiased information on skin care and anti-aging. My staff and I personally test every product that I recommend on this site."

-Dr. Irwin
