Welcome to TheSkinCode

Skin is not only our largest body organ and protective covering, but it is also an indicator of one's state of health. TheSkinCode aims to reveal the basic essentials of healthy skin, hair, and nails for all skin types, ages, and backgrounds through science and expertise.

Skin and hair define us in the world and are personal, social, cultural, and political. The human species presents with millions of shades of skin, evolutionarily created to help us handle geographical variabilities in Earth's ultraviolet radiation. While this may appear to separate us, only 0.1% of our genetic code accounts for the differences in our external appearance (skin and eye color). Our overwhelmingly similar genetic code holds the key to skin wellness.
