When did your skin start being something that you wanted to focus on?
For the last 5/6 years I’ve definitely been super aware of my skin as I’m in an industry which is very image focused, it’s a challenge to not feel self conscious when you have a breakout or a bad hair day. But the real focus came when my skin became so sensitive and sore from experimenting with all of the ‘next big thing’ products, it felt like I was doing a lot more damage than good and I needed some honest advice to set me on a new path.
What was your biggest skin frustration?
The redness. It was so persistent and would manifest itself in so many forms (breakouts/dryness/rashes) it felt like I was just slapping on products that would solve one problem but then aggravate another.
Where did you go first to try to solve this problem?
I guess just getting advice from friends who had similar issues, but just because something worked for them didn’t mean it was going to work for me.
What was your biggest frustration or challenge with the current beauty market?
It’s really the label of ‘for all skin types’ - how can this even be allowed?!
