In the Beginning
Hi Y'all! I'm Kimberly Pinkston and decided to develop a skincare line with a purpose. One that nourishes the skin and aides in healing while restoring that youthful glow! As a former runway model, I love all things fashion. My favorite has always been skincare. Many years ago :) when I was a teenager, my mom would always fuss at me for using her eggs and mayonnaise on my face. She would look for her natural herbs she used for cooking and find them in my room while I'm mixing up stuff with lotion...lol. Those were the days! However, being a professional runway model on the way up, it made sense to have great skin...right? By any means necessary.
After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, I had to figure out my "new normal" and decided that MS will not stop me! Instead I use MS as my driving force to make a difference and to prove a point. I choose to make lemonade out of the lemons I've been given. It tastes pretty darn good!
So I decided to teach professional runway techniques to young girls in under-served communities. I teach them for free because I know their parents want the best for their kids but just don't have the money. My only criteria is the girls in my program must maintain an A-B average in school and be active in their communities. Pretty and stupid is not an option.
My mission, to find a cure for MS and to help young black girls pursue their dreams of becoming fashion models. Which is why one of my students is featured on my label. I want to get them as much positive exposure as possible. 20% of all sales are donated to the MS Foundation so no one else has to go through what I deal with daily and a scholarship fund for the young ladies in my program who want to go to college. I love giving back! Someone helped me on my journey and now, I pay it forward.
