African Skin is an online gallery of South African people aimed at providing the field of dermatology with photographs for study and promotional purposes. The website features several stock photographs of native African people that can be used for the sales and marketing of dermatology products along with education and training.

Recognising the pressing need for stock photos of true South Africans in the field of dermatology, the website was created by two keen photographers Prof. Ncoza Dlova and Gizelle Regel.

Photo Categories Available on African Skin:
The photos on the website are broadly classified into two categories so that they can be found easily:

1. Dermatology – Dermatology deals with the ailments of the skin, hair and nails. When monitoring the patients or teaching students about the various conditions, the use of photographs is necessary. As there are hundreds of skin disorders, it is not easy to visually imagine them. Photographs help in better identifying and understanding various conditions. African Skin features many first-hand photographs of dermatological conditions of real African skin for educational and promotional purposes.

2. Lifestyle – When promoting dermatology products, it is essential to use tailored photos. African Skin features a great collection of photos with various ages, ethnicities and sexes allowing you to find a suitable photo for your purpose. Focusing on skin, hair and nails, the images are suitable for the promotion of dermatological products.
