How to take before and afters like a pro
We’re here to tell you what we know, but don’t take it as medical advice. Talk to your medical provider about your specific health concerns.

Getting the right selfie can be tricky. There are so many things to take into account, like lighting, angles, and getting the camera to be your friend for juuust one more picture. But fear not! This guide will take you through all the steps of how to take before-and-after pictures like a pro—so that you can give clear pictures to your dermatology provider and show off your Curology glow.

How to take amazing before-and-after photos

  1. Get up close and personal—fill the frame with your lovely face! 

  2. Take off makeup and filters. We want to see what you look like, here and now.

  3. Make sure your face is well-lit. (The best kind of lighting is the natural kind, like from a nearby window.) For the most accurate comparisons, lighting should be similar for before AND after photos.

  4. Snap one from the front and one from each side. Don’t worry, you don’t have a “bad side.” 😎

  5. Delete the 837 you don’t like so your phone doesn’t yell at you about storage space

  6. Feel confident knowing you’re killin’ it 

And that’s it! Remember that your Curology selfies are confidential—we’ll save a copy so you can look back on your progress, but it’s entirely up to you if you want to keep them between you and your Curology provider or hold them up for the world to ooh and ahh. Whatever you decide, we’re here for you!

Love,
