For more than 20 years, I have had the pleasure and the privilege of helping hundreds of clients, just like you solve, their skin problems by using natural skin solutions.
And for 10 years, my customers have used Natural Skin Junkie to even skin tones, fix acne issues, soothe sensitive skins and keep complexions young.
It is truly my mission to provide you with the highest quality, best performing, natural and organic skin care products and to share with you the same experience my clients have had for more than 20 years.
"Missouri's First African American Esthetician 1997"
Before 1996, there was not a Class E Esthetics License in Missouri. I was working as a paralegal, but I wanted to be a licensed makeup artist.
The only thing standing in my way was getting my license.
Back then, you couldn't get an Esthetics Class E License (skin and makeup) because it didn't exist. You had to get a Class C Cosmetology License (hair, skin and nails), and I can't part my hair straight so that was out of the question for years.
So for years, I would call the State of Board of Cosmetology, and one day in 1996, the law changed, and skin was separated from the hair license.
Immediately I enrolled in the only school in Missouri that taught esthetics. And after graduation passed state boards, obtained my license and became the first Black Esthetician in Missouri.
Funny thing is, after I started studying esthetics, I fell in love with skin care. And although licensed to do makeup, I didn't. I've been practicing esthetics for 20 years now.
Why Natural Skin Products?
After spending years battling Lupus and realizing just how debilitating and hard it was to deal with and after having found a natural way out -- I wanted to stay true to the path when it came to every thing in my life, including skin care.
I was actually going to school for esthetics at the same time I was battling Lupus. The treatment for Lupus, in my personal (not professional) opinion, is worse than having the disease. I feel blessed to have stumbled upon acupuncture and herbs which put me into remission for more than 18 years with no use of medication.
I was so impressed by nature and convinced that nature can cure anything and restore a person's life and health that I sought the most natural solutions to common skin problems, and that's how Natural Skin Junkie was born.
How Did the Name Come About?
Before the products had a name, I was asking clients for suggestions. None of the suggestions cleared copyright searches so I still needed a name. Then my clients would literally be begging for that yellow serum (what later became Rapid Repair Serum) saying they were addicted to it and had to have it.
I jokingly said to one lady, " girl...you acting like a natural skin junkie" and the rest is history.
