About Devin Mooers

Devin MooersHey all! Over the past 10 years, I've developed and refined a powerful system for clearing acne with a little-known diet- and lifestyle-based method, and I want to spread the love. That's why I started Clear Skin Forever back in 2011. I studied engineering and product design at Stanford University, but after graduating, I decided to focus more on writing about health and personal development, since I found it so fulfilling to help people grow in these ways. Thanks for reading, and sign up for email updates to stay in the loop with clear skin tips! Also, be sure to check out our book if you haven't yet. We're trying to set the gold standard of acne information on the Internet.
