Hyram certainly has spent a generous amount of time learning to be across all things skincare. When asked about TikTokers without the same level of knowledge joining the industry, Hyram suggests that as long as they’re getting their facts straight, he doesn’t mind who joins the skincare realm.
“I think one thing I love about this space is that there’s room for everyone. There’s so many different people and so many different skin concerns and things that have worked better for them. I think there’s so much value to the individual being able to share what their experience with skincare has been and what’s worked for them and been beneficial.
“I’d say so long as you are doing your part to combat misinformation and educating yourself, I think it’s amazing that people are sharing so much information. Where I do feel some level of frustration is when people will spread misinformation without making an effort to correct it or solely do it for virality or views when, in reality, those recommendations are not endorsed by dermatologists, they’re not recommended in the space – that’s the only time I get a little frustrated.”
