In 1998, I was working at a luxury skincare boutique in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC. I shined in sales and the vendors gifted me unlimited products.
Unfortunately, after years of using traditional skincare with the hope that it would magically work, my face was constantly irritated and broken out.
During that time I was an intern at the National Geographic Society and for fun, researched skincare formulations in their library. It was alarming to discover that traditional skincare is basically fragranced toxic soup dressed up in pretty packaging and sold with great stories that do more harm than good.
Upon learning the truth, I quit selling and using commercial skincare and went back to basics. I cleansed with pure rosemary soap, made masks with raw honey, herbs + teas and worked on creating an organic cream, I also enrolled in beauty school.
Miraculously, I healed my skin issues and changed the course of my life.
After five years of professional training, I became a holistic esthetician and treated clients with difficult skin issues using homemade remedies.
Clients were amazed at the results and I quickly built up a loyal following.
In 2018, the Lux Beauty line was complete. Beautiful organic skincare crafted with my cruelty-free formulas filled with the best quality biodynamic ingredients + nutritional supplements.
Today, I am based in Washington, DC and continue to travel and research health and wellness, my gorgeous healing products are lovingly made in small batches by an amazing team at Skincando HQ and I proudly give back through our Rabbit Rescue Fund and other charities that are close to my heart.
