Who cares? Looks fade.
Topicals is committed to reminding you that you make skin look good, not the other way around.
Just like life, skin can be complicated, even if we don’t want it to be. At Topicals, we recognize that managing chronic skin conditions can be both a physical and mental challenge.
Many of us are taught to feel shame about our flare-ups because our skin doesn’t look like the photoshopped images we see in TV and magazines. This creates a desire to strive for perfect skin. But guess what? Perfect skin doesn’t exist.
We’re here to remind you that you make skin look good, not the other way around.

“Topicals’ mission to transform the way people feel about their skin is rooted in my personal experiences with skin health and mental health. Growing up with a ton of chronic skin conditions, I know firsthand the debilitating toll that our skin can take on how we perceive ourselves and our self-image. These struggles were exacerbated by the overwhelming gap in access to mental health services particularly within communities of color as well as my experiences with doctors and health professionals who lacked knowledge of how to treat and care for my skin tone and skin type, leaving me feeling frustrated, overlooked and isolated. That's why we are investing in organizations that are creating inclusive community-centric spaces through our Mental Health fund to combat those feelings of isolation. My hope is that we help those who are struggling with mental health and skin health to feel less alone and more supported in their journey towards healing and wellbeing.”
