Hi, I’m Jenny – Founder of Gotham Skincare. Growing up in the “Big Apple”, I grappled with severe acne. I exhausted every over-the-counter product available, yet nothing seemed to work. I felt lost in the sea of options, frustrated by their ineffectiveness, and desperate for solutions.
I chose to take control. Diving into the science behind skincare, I learned why certain products and ingredients worked while others didn’t. I saw how ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide interact with the skin, and I realized what habits were exacerbating my acne.
Armed with this knowledge, I overcame my acne issues. In 2009, I founded Gotham Skincare to help you skip the frustrating and costly trial and error process, and quickly find skincare products that genuinely deliver results.
Today, Gotham Skincare is a growing community of skincare writers dedicated to setting the record straight. Readers worldwide trust us for skincare education and finding the most effective products and treatments for their skin type.
