In 1998, I began working at a beauty boutique in 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 was basically fragranced toxic soup dressed up in pretty packaging and sold with great stories by sales girls like me.

After learning the truth, I quit my sales job and used only natural skincare. I cleansed my face with coconut soap, made masks with raw honey, herbs + berries 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. I was helping clients that suffered from skin issues and quickly built up a loyal following; I often had a waiting list 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 handcrafted at Skincando HQ by my skilled team. I continue to travel and research green beauty all over the world, give back, and work with clients at our private Garden Spa  (text number below for more information …)
