My passion for luxurious, natural beauty products was ignited while growing up in my African Household and further infused during my early twenties while I traveled. The more I traveled to different countries, I was fortunately allowed the opportunity to experience beauty rituals of different cultures and fell in love and adapted the very necessary indulgence of spa treatments. However, as I traveled Europe, it was Paris that stole my heart. The French way of seeing skin care routines as a necessary part of life, their way of choosing only the best products, accenting a healthy skincare regimen with a simple red lip and proper grooming spoke to my desire to have no-fuss, highly effective skincare products while I traveled – and that stayed with me throughout my life.
Fast forward a couple decades, having been an Investment Analyst for over 20 years, now a wife, mother of two teenage girls that travels very often. My horried life happens and i realise i’m the least important on my to do list. Often times, we as women are wired to take care of everyone around us first, and forget the most important, which is ourselves. The things I loved indulging most became secondary, With all I had on my plate, I also found myself highly stressed, loosing my hair, battling Hyper-Pigmentation and age spots. As i embarked on the journey of clearing my skin, i sought several brands and to my dismay, there weren’t enough products out there made for women of colour with my skin type that would safely and effectively clear my skin or for women my age with similar lifestyle that was relatable. Now as a mother, I am in competition with distorted images of beauty while I do all I can to instil confidence in my daughters.
Reality now sets in and i had an AHA moment. i knew i yearned for that sense of self, i had lost touch with me. I decided, my being needed to be nourished to finding a way back to me, reconnect with the me that was very into taking care of her emotional and mental wellbeing. Rather than focus on just trying to clear my spots, my hyper pigmented skin, why not focus more on slowing down, relieving my high stress and finding time to reconnecting with myself again. Hence the creation of SKÔT Beauté, With my two favourite things in mind, Travel and a Spa Treat, incorporating African Beauty Rituals and the French Beauty Secrets.
