If you have been following Soko Glam from the very beginning (late 2012), you'll know that I fell in love with Korean beauty culture and cosmetics and was lucky enough to bring that very passion back to the U.S. through a special curated site and a beauty blog.
It really just started out as a simple passion project as I was transitioning from Seoul to New York—then something amazing happened. People started listening. After sharing my version of the 10-step Korean skincare routine on Elle
and other awesome beauty sites
, women (and men!) of all ages started sharing their experience with the products and the routine with me.
I remember one morning I received an email from a woman who suffered from eczema. She revealed that although she was initially skeptical about the Korean skincare routine, she saw the logic behind the steps and after a few weeks, she noticed dramatic improvements to her skin. One week later, I received four more emails from people who shared how much brighter and even their complexion has gotten. I was truly elated that in some way I had helped people take control of their skin (and their confidence).
As barf-worthy and cliché as this may sound—it was that month I knew I had found my true calling.
After many long talks with Dave and some soul searching, I decided it is time for me to take my passion for skincare to the next level: I have decided to go back to school to become a certified esthetician! This is such a big transition for me and I am so excited to learn more about ingredients, skin types, facials, and even skin diseases. I have to admit it is kind of daunting to think that we'll BOTH be in school for the next year (and a bit worried that Rambo will feel a bit neglected due to our busy schedules), but I think we figured out a way to prioritize our time to stay sane and in sync with each other.
The best part about going back to school is that now I have a platform to share the knowledge I gain. Look forward to more in-depth blog posts about skin truths and myths (and there are a ton!) so that you can also gain the knowledge that will allow you to be in control of your skin! :D
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Without your support and encouragement, I wouldn't have made it to this next big step in my journey. I can't wait to pay it forward with some great skincare tips!
