In 1998, I began working at EFX in Washington, DC. I shined in sales and our vendors gifted me tons of high-end skincare products.
“I’m going to do the complete routines and my troubled skin will look just like the flawless models!”
Unfortunately, after years of using traditional skincare & broken promises, 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 fragranced toxic soup dressed up in pretty packaging and sold with great stories.
Upon learning the truth, I quit my job and used only natural products. Miraculously, I healed my own skin issues. I cleansed with lavender soap, made masks with raw honey, herbs + teas and worked on creating an organic cream; I also enrolled in beauty school.
After five years of professional training, I became a holistic esthetician and treated clients with difficult skin issues using my own homemade remedies. Clients were amazed at the results and I quickly built up a loyal following. To this day, I often have a waiting list of several months long!
In 2018, the Lux Beauty line was complete. Beautiful organic skincare crafted with my cruelty-free formulas and filled with the best quality biodynamic ingredients + nutritional supplements.
Today, our products are still made in small batches at Skincando HQ, I continue to travel and research natural beauty products + services all over the world, we give back, and work with clients at the private Garden Spa.
