I had the opportunity to speak to a female skincarer about how to become a feminist in the face of all the negative attention her brand is getting and I hope I didn’t disappoint you.
It was a wonderful opportunity to share my thoughts and experiences.
I started as a beauty blogger at Cosmopolitan in 2012, where I covered beauty and skincares for four years.
I’ve since worked at The Daily Dot, The Huffington Post, The Hollywood Reporter, and more.
I recently published a book called “Beauty: The Essential Guide” and the first book of my brand, Beauty: A Feminist Guide, will be released this fall.
I’m passionate about bringing my readership into the feminist conversation by bringing together my experience and expertise.
So what is a feminist skincaring brand doing right now?
Feminism has come to define the brand.
As a result, brands have been forced to define what feminism means.
For example, I started Beauty: The Definitive Guide to Female Skincare at Cosmo in 2013.
I was very surprised when Cosmo’s editors wrote in an email, “We think you should focus on your own beauty.
We believe it’s the only thing that matters.”
I was stunned.
My response was to write, “No, I’m going to do exactly that.
I wanted to create a brand that was both inclusive and accessible, but also feminist. “
The way we define feminism is different than the way we do business.”
I wanted to create a brand that was both inclusive and accessible, but also feminist.
That’s why I have my own blog and a brand website.
What is it like to be on the front lines of feminism?
I am not a perfect advocate for my brand.
I am not an expert on feminism, and I don, at times, try to take sides.
However, I believe the more people I know who understand the power of feminism, the more we can make a difference.
In 2015, I became the first woman in the Cosmo Newsroom to be named the Women in the Newsroom of the Year.
As a result of this award, I was asked to write a book about my experiences.
I thought about writing a book on how to be feminist but I couldn’t think of anything that I would be proud of if I didn, so I decided to start the brand with a brand-new mission: to make a positive difference.
I want to inspire the next generation of female skinners to be better than ever.
