Kerry Thompson's enthusiasm for skin care began at a very young age and eventually grew into a passion for documenting her skin-care adventures on her esteemed blog, Skin & Tonics.

Kerry can often be found perusing peer-reviewed clinical research or speaking with cosmetic chemists and industry insiders.
