Tell us about yourself and how that led to NEXTANN.
My journey in the beauty industry spans nearly a decade. It all began with my fascination as a makeup artist, but my true passion ignited when I delved into the world of skincare, ultimately evolving into a devoted Skin Therapist. Specializing in advanced treatments, I crafted personalized skin health strategies and bespoke skincare regimens for my clients to address their unique concerns.
My passion lies in understanding the very essence of skincare products, delving deep into the ingredients and their effects at the cellular level. However, I was mortified when I started researching the ingredients concealed within the self-tanning products I had been using. What I discovered was nothing short of alarming. The research led me through a maze of brands in search of one that resonated with my values, but sadly, none fit the bill.
Just as I was on the verge of giving up on personal tanners, a spark of inspiration struck. I asked myself, "Why not create our own?" This way, I could guarantee that our tanner would prioritize skin care while delivering stunning results. Simultaneously, I was still immersed in the beauty industry, witnessing the immense environmental waste it generated, particularly in the form of unrecyclable plastic packaging. It was a turning point – a moment of clarity. If we were to establish NEXTANN, it had to mark a new era in skincare-based tanning, prioritizing both the health of the skin and the environment from the outset. Thus, NEXTANN was born.
