Beauty comes in all different shapes, sizes, colors, and genders. There are so many different ways to be beautiful. Yet it’s reported that approximately 80% of women feel inadequate after viewing a traditional beauty ad. After developing my first natural skin care line several years ago; I knew I wanted to build a community and brand that is synonymous with well-being.
Genuine Glow combines wellness and skin care, and offers a positive approach to looking and feeling your best. Our message speaks to everyone, offers simple yet effective skin care products, and makes beauty unintimidating. I wanted to create products that allow the ingredients and their known benefits to speak for themselves, therefore letting our customers define their own standard of beauty.
I chose Brio exfoliator to lead the line because exfoliating your skin at least twice a week is one of the easiest and most effective things we can do to achieve a healthier complexion. Brio was born out of the knowledge that healthy food and healthy eating are the foundation for overall physical health; therefore healthy skin care ingredients are the foundation for overall skin health. After 4 years of research, BRIO – with its zesty botanicals, powerful Vitamin C content, light joyful scent, and award winning proprietary formula, became our hero product!
The Genuine Glow blog aims to produce meaningful conversations, rather than content. I believe beauty should be a tool to show your best self, and feeling beautiful on the inside is just as important as feeling beautiful on the outside. And since we all feel the same emotions, there’s an opportunity to connect us through beneficial stories, shared experiences, and vetted wellness methods. Genuine Glow is meant to complement your lifestyle, help you achieve healthy skin, and make inside-outside health and beauty attainable.
