Chicago born and current Brooklyn resident, Simedar is a beauty writer, licensed esthetician and skin care educator. She is passionate about leveling the playing field by uplifting the stories and experiences of communities rarely given a platform and creating content that speaks to cultural nuance . She is skincare obsessed and enjoys empowering her clients to make personal care decisions they feel proud of. She operates under the mantra that skincare is more than beauty, its healthcare we all deserve access to.
