Launched in 2020 to provide simple skincare solutions to women like Tina, it’s become a Godsend for people with skin problems. Having dealt with acne since adolescence, Tina was determined to create something that would keep her skin clear, nourish the skin and give it a natural glow. As a model, Tina had tried many skincare products, from name brands to everyday brands. She designed the solution to her problem by creating natural products.
Besides being a busy entrepreneur, Tina had the honor of being crowned Mrs. Georgia Imperial Nations in both 2021 and 2022. She placed first runner-up in the 2021 national competition. Tina is now Mrs. Imperial Nations 2022.
Before Tina was ever crowned as Mrs. Georgia Imperial Nations, she was an advocate for Autism. Tina didn’t choose Autism Awareness; it chose her. As a mother of an Autistic child, Tina and her family have faced many trials. Tina has made her platform loud and clear about Autism Awareness. Tina was blessed to be able to provide resources to guide her family and help her son. As Tina started talking to other parents with Autistic kids, she became aware of them not being provided the same resources to help their kids. Since then, Tina has been sharing what she knows with other parents, while she is also still learning more each day. Tina has been honored to be able to help other parents get the resources they need to relieve a little of the pressure they may face.
Tina has proudly represented her family and brand in numerous magazine features, podcasts, and contests. Keep your eyes open; her story is still being written.
