Cherlyn is the founder and CEO of Cherlyn Skincare, a product line that is committed to high quality, innovative, 100% naturally derived and organic ingredients, and whose goal is to celebrate the natural inner beauty of women. While studying Psychology at the University of Calgary,Cherlyn began to recognize the disempowering messages rampant in the media, including the cosmetics industry. She also began to understand that she was suffering from low self-esteem, partly due to the persistent acne she had developed in her youth and feeling that beauty was unattainable for her. She embarked on a journey of self-awareness and healthy living to shift her negative perception about herself to a state of self-love and acceptance. Since childhood, Cherlyn has shown an aptitude for creativity and thinking outside the box. Creating a brand that would help women feel empowered in their own skin and a skin care line that turned the industry on its head seemed like a natural fit and thus Cherlyn Skincare was born.
