Why did you get into skincare?
Why I went into Skincare; To me skincare is like every other business ; Maybe you should ask me why I went into entrepreneurship (lol)...okay after graduation I had my first job with Abuja integrated Facility management, then worked with Vision FM, then DTN Tv, P&H of All the years I gathered working in all these firms I discovered it was just a a total waste of time, energy ,resources couple with the fact that it comes with very little stipend as salary barely even enough to cater for everyday life talk more of earning a livelihood... So it started to ring in my head that it won't hurt to have multiply streams of income.. then I started to think along side venturing into business, that was how I started some series of business that flopped along the line (lol)my first business selling dry fish,then Palm oil ,content production(Media) and then behold the Beauty industry now (lol).
