How it Began
When I was 21, I didn’t know what a skin care routine was. I got my first job in cosmetics. I didn’t know anything about this world except that I liked makeup/skincare/fragrance and I wanted to work around it. Estee Lauder took a chance on me and I was hooked. I’m a mother of 6, so over the years, I have worked full-time, part-time, no-time, whatever life and the Good Lord would have me do. I have been trained and worked with companies such as Estee Lauder, Clinique, Prescriptives, Bobbi Brown, Cle de Pau (Sheisedo) and Lancome. Each one has taught me many new and interesting things. Most lines offer in-depth and continued training on their products and the skincare and makeup industry.
Now, over 30 years later, I have met thousands of people and touched hundreds of faces. One of the things I have learned is that there are SO many different types of skin and SO many common concerns. I know that there are a countless number of people that never step foot into a cosmetic department. Who do you go to? What do I even ask to find what I need? Which line is better for me? Why are there so many products to choose from? What is the best skin care routine? These are just some of the questions you may have and some of the reasons you may be hesitant to walk up to my counter.
Where We Go
This is the motivation behind starting this blog and my website. I thought that there was a need for a place to go to not only find the answers to your questions about skin but also find the right questions to ask about your skin. There are many factors to be considered when analyzing skin; environment, age, medication, how you cleanse, sensitivities, etc. The website will take you through the steps to find your own personal skin type and then guide you through questions that will narrow down the list of possible products for you that meet your desired criteria. I have gathered information from thousands of products from drug store to department store, including ingredients so you can eliminate those items from your choices that you can’t or choose not to use on your skin. Sound too good to be true? Not anymore………..
