Skin care is more to me than a business— it’s who I am. As the youngest of 12 children – 9 girls and 3 boys, I watched my 8 older sisters as they aged. My oldest sisters, twins, are 23 years older than me. By the time I reached my late teens, they were in their early 40’s. When I was 19, I began noticing that some of my sisters were aging more than others. Some of my sisters smoked, some of them worshiped the sun, and some of them took vitamins and wore sunscreen. Since we all had the same biological parents, it was obvious to me how damaging sun and smoking were, and how important it was to protect and nourish my skin.
I Got My Start
This realization prompted me to begin researching skin care, anti-oxidants, free radicals and how all of this affects your skin. I began taking vitamin C daily as it helps the body build collagen and protect against free radicals. I also took Vitamin E and B complex to further nourish and protect my skin. That’s how I got into skin care, because I knew I wanted to stay young with healthy skin as long as possible. Premature aging affects your self-esteem, your relationships, and your life; it affects everything. That’s what gave me the compassion to create my skin care line. For over 20 years I worked as a Skin Care Specialist and 5 years as a pharmaceutical representative. I worked with many doctors and industry professionals. This is where my passion for product development began. Innovations in ingredients and technology were making products more effective, and producing visible results. It was very exciting to me, and I knew someday I wanted my own skin care line.
A Gift from My Mother
In the fall of 2016, my beautiful mother passed away at the age of 95. She was a successful entrepreneur and fully lived her life. Dedicated and determined, she was a wonderful role model to me. She believed in me. She gave me strength, determination, and the financial opportunity to fulfill my own dreams. My mother gave me a beautiful gift. The opportunity to start my own skin care line. This prompted me to begin working with a scientist from a nutraceutical company to develop a unique plant based, organic skincare. I wanted to share my dream and the gift from my mother with my own daughter, so I named my product line after my daughter – Sabrina. To me, Sabrina is simply beautiful and that became our tag line.
New Mother-Daughter Team
Together Sabrina and I are creating a wonderful mother-daughter team whose goal is to empower and inspire others. We both know feeling confident and beautiful in your skin makes life and living more fun. Sabrina and I would love to empower everyone to feel beautiful, confident, and happy with their skin and appearance. We would love for everyone to feel simply beautiful.
