Who Am I?
Hey, I’m Samantha! I’m 27, live in the UK with my amazing husband, Ben and our gorgeous 7 month old Miniature Schnauzer – Kevin!
I’m a midwife by background but at the moment I’m taking a career break and working with my husband, helping to run his business.
Why Did I Create Skin Acid Trip?
I began this blog during the Coronavirus lock-down because naturally with the increased thinking time I began to analyse what my skincare routine looked like. I realised that I could/should/wanted to be doing more for my skin and in turn my mental health. I also got really interested in what was in the products that I was currently using.
So, I began researching and this showed me that there truly is a wealth of very confusing and conflicting information out there surrounding skincare! I couldn’t believe that a lot of the stuff I thought I knew about skincare was either incorrect or simply not true!
It was such a frustrating time, I actually went to bed with headaches just thinking about all the stuff I was reading – and I have a background in healthcare! I laugh about it now but at the time I found it so hard because my healthcare brain can’t help but want to understand things fully and not by halves!
And then I started to understand the information that I was reading. So I made changes to my products and my skin changed in accordance. It got better. I simply couldn’t believe the years I’d wasted not researching information properly, I could have helped myself a lot sooner. I could have saved many tears. I could have not cancelled so many occasions and events because of my skin. Sound familiar to you?
So What’s My Mission?
Well during this time of change, I thought that there must be others feeling the same way I do or just totally frustrated with their skin and not knowing how to help it. This got me thinking and I realised that I wanted to help demystify the information out there and I wanted people to experience the joy that I had felt when a product worked with my skin. I wanted to do this, not just for me but for my friends, my mum and for others, like you! And that’s how this blog – Skin Acid Trip, was created.
If I can help just one of you out there find your best skin and feel confident in picking the right products for you and your skin, then I will be a very happy lady!
