Let's be real, Instagram has changed the way we go about doing our beauty routines. From endless beauty hacks to skincare tips, it is a treasure trove of knowledge. Thanks to social media, we can also get advice from some wonderful dermatologists that we may not have had access to before.
While beauty tips and hacks can sometimes feel overwhelming, these trusty dermats are there to tell you exactly what works and what doesn't, minus any fluff. They'll also explain to you what to expect and shock you with their insider knowledge. So beauty buffs, these experts deserve to be followed on Instagram cause you'll learn so much from them.
If you've ever dealt with an acne-shaming dermat in the past, Dr Anjali Mahto will feel like a breath of fresh air.
