My name is Ziph’ezinhle Moyo. I am a 25 year old South African who hails from the city of gold, Johannesburg. My day (and night) job is a medical doctor in a hospital somewhere in Gauteng.
Skin Deep(er) is born from my childhood dream of becoming a Dermatologist. Ever since I was a child, I knew I wanted to become a skin doctor. In my head, dermatology was all beauty and glamour, until I came to medical school and found out that it was quite the opposite- except maybe the dreamy working hours (lol). Nevertheless, it is a dream I harbour still.
When I started this blog in 2017, as a 5th year medical student, the focus was strictly skin. However, as I’ve grown and lived more, I’ve come to find that health-of any organ or system- is multifaceted. The optimal function of any bodily system is affected by so much more than biology. I am a firm believer in holistic health, in living a balanced life, and I wanted that to shine through on this platform i call my own. So besides delving deep into all things skin, we’ll also talk travel, health and (mental + spiritual) wellness- all of my passions.
So again, welcome. Come with me and lets wade through the murky waters of this thing called life. Live beautifully. Live well.
