Ever since I was a child, I loved to make people feel and look beautiful.

The Best Ingredient Per Your Major Skin Concern

I love when things are made easy! I’ve never been the best in school, but I certainly dominated in gym class. It’s not that I’m not smart, but I never really felt that the education I was receiving was catered towards my learning style. And I mean, how could the educational system cater to every child’s needs? I get it! But for me, I really like when things are written out clearly, put into laymen’s terms and the ‘teacher’ regardless of the subject and setting, let’s me see it in the easiest way possible! I feel like a lot of y’all can relate. I get all riled up at work when folks complicate the hell out of things… don’t overthink it right!?

But I’m not here to get on a soap box about how I learn best, but rather why I think it’s really important to explain skincare concerns & topics in the easiest way possible! We’re all learning in life (myself included) and it has always been my goal to explain things as easily as I can with the best intentions. So that’s why I decided it was time to focus on major skincare concerns and provide an ingredient that I think (& skincare professionals think too) that are MOST helpful to you. So while there are TONS of ingredients on this green earth per your skin concern, I wanted to make it easy and just highlight my favorites!
