Welcome to The Glow Addict!
Hey there! I’m a licensed esthetician based in New York. Here I’ll be sharing my reviews and musings on everything skincare related.
You may be wondering, how did I become so interested in skincare?
Growing up I had horrible skin. It was plagued with persistent cystic acne which affected my self-esteem greatly. It really took a toll on me psychologically and I was always self-conscious of how my skin looked. I didn’t understand why nothing was working for my skin despite all of these dermatologist visits and expensive products. At the time, I didn’t know that there was more to skincare than just applying a bunch of random products and hoping that one would work.
My skin problems followed me until I graduated from college, and that’s when I decided that I finally had enough. I wanted my skin to change for the better, so I decided to spend more time researching how I could improve it. I started looking into how ingredients and product formulations affected my skin rather than the marketing on the packaging. Everything started making sense once I understood how to properly care for my skin.
Through my blog, I hope to share as much information so I can help others who are interested and want to learn more about skincare. I look forward to continuously learn more about esthetics and skincare every day!
My skin type is oily, dehydrated, and acne prone. Sounds amazing, right? As a result, many of the products I try tend to have a focus on soothing hydration and acne care.
Please keep in mind that my skin type and concerns might be completely different than yours. My experience with a product may differ from your own experience. I urge you to do your research as well on products or ingredients. I am not a medical expert, and if you need medical advice, please seek the opinion of a trained medical professional.
