Skin to Skin was born from the idea that all women deserve to have the highest quality, scientifically-backed skincare recommendations for their babies and themselves. There is a lot of information out there about pregnancy and infant skincare, but a lot of the time, websites and companies are just trying to get you to buy their products, even if they are not effective or safe. On the other hand, scientific journals are full of interesting, cutting edge dermatology breakthroughs, but are not really accessible for a general audience.
Enter Skin to Skin. Dermatologist-moderated, and only including information with a strong scientific backing, you will find new articles weekly about the latest advances in skincare, a large searchable photo gallery of common skin problems in pregnancy and infancy, as well as forums where you can discuss your skin health with other parents.
Although backed by the latest science, the information provided here is purely educational and is not intended to replace the diagnostic expertise of an experienced dermatologist. Rather, it should serve as a jumping off point so that you and your dermatologist can have an effective, personalized discussion about what’s best for you and your baby.
