Meet the Team
Plagued by acne in his early teens, Jake became a skincare enthusiast when nothing was working. After growing increasingly overwhelmed and frustrated trying numerous OTC products, Jake took matters into his own hands and began researching clinical reviews to find products that truly did work. This process sparked an interest in the medical side of skin care for Jake.
He graduated Penn State University with a degree in Information Science, which explains his innate curiosity to the science of skin care. His favorite products include Sebamed Cleansing Foam, Paula’s Choice 2% BHA, SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic with 15% L-Ascorbic Acid, and EltaMD Clear 47 UV Sunscreen.
Sayan is the perfect complement to Jake’s skin care knowledge and expertise. With years of graphic design experience, Sayan takes the information that Jake provides readers and puts them into an easy to understand illustrated format. These compelling graphics helps readers to understand the narrative of the story so that they can make the most informed skin care purchasing and treatment decisions.
