THE STORY OF IMANSELFCARE

I have dealt with stress and anxiety ever since I started high school. The stress of trying to get the best grades caught up with me. I wanted to find a way to try to achieve my goals in academics while regulating my mental health, and that was through practicing self-care. I would try all kinds of face washes, masks, and scrubs that I could find, but the only problem was that they would break me out and make me feel worse about myself. I later found out that I have very sensitive skin, and I can’t use just any product on my skin.
I realized that I couldn’t find one product that didn’t have some chemical product ( that I couldn’t pronounce) in the ingredients. After researching natural herbs and oils that are good for the skin, I decided to create my own products so I can really make sure that the products I am putting on my body won’t harm me. I wanted to make sure people around me aren’t being harmed as well; that’s when I came up with Imanselfcare!
