However, the app isn’t just limited to the Gen Z crowd. Dermatologists have gotten wind of TikTok’s ever-growing popularity, and some have jumped on board to share their opinions on the latest skincare trends.
Watching these dermatologists react to someone’s skincare routine provides us with more than just entertainment value, though. Since we can’t all afford regular appointments at the derm, getting a virtual education in the form of short TikTok clips gives us all a chance to up our skincare knowledge.
To help you navigate the endless stream of videos and accounts online, we’ve rounded up the 7 top dermatologists you should follow on TikTok!
Psst, here’s a shameless plug before we continue with this article. Daily Vanity is on TikTok too – you can follow us here! Here’s a fun video we recently did:

With a particular interest in acne, dermatologist Dr Dustin Portela has amassed over one million TikTok followers, which he shares his knowledge with frequently.
If he seems a little familiar to you, that’s because he was one of the professionals who chimed in to help Tessica Brown, the woman who went viral on TikTok for using Gorilla Glue adhesive as hairspray.
His “dermatologist reacts” videos are particularly fun to watch, but Dr Portela also takes his role as an educator very seriously. As you scroll through his videos, you’ll notice how often he stresses the importance of using sunscreen daily, and he takes his followers through different types of skin cancer too.
On top of that, he walks his followers through certain surgical procedures in the dermatology world, providing a little insight into his job.
