I’m Dr. Kaitlyn Rose, an ex-retail pharmacist, freelance writer, and skin care enthusiast. I received my Doctor of Pharmacy degree after graduating with honors from Duquesne University in 2015. I worked in retail pharmacy for about two years after graduation, until I realized this career was not my true passion. Now I teach others how to approach health with a more holistic perspective, focusing on identifying and treating the root cause of disease rather than masking the symptoms.
I have a passion for skin care, particularly for learning the science behind why certain ingredients provide amazing benefits and why others are all hype. I think it’s fun to debunk popular skin care myths, and I love helping others understand what to look for in a skin care product and what to avoid. My favorite skin care products are those that are fragrance-free, alcohol-free, and include science-backed ingredients. When I’m not working, my hobbies include spending time outdoors, listening to podcasts, weight lifting, and playing with my fur babies (Tootsie and Tyson).
