About the Editor
I'm Michelle—a journalist, editor and independent researcher who has been studying skincare for more than a decade. I LOVE sharing my findings, tips and recommendations!
Prior to launching The Skincare Edit, I was the beauty and health editor at Elle Canada and the beauty editor at The Look. I've also written for many of the top publications in Canada, including Elle, The Globe and Mail, Chatelaine, Flare and Fashion.
It was a struggle with my own skin issues over the years (which I've now resolved, on my own!) that led me to research how topical ingredients, nutrition and hormones affect our skin physiology.
My hope is to not only help you become a more educated beauty consumer... I also want to empower you with the ability to improve your own skin, just like I did!
I'm always happy to hear from readers, so feel free to get in touch if you have a question or just want to say hello.
