On Common Reactions to Her Age
I've found that my audience is a lot older than me, mostly in their mid-20s, so I try to cater my information to everyone who can access it. People are often pretty surprised by how young I am. I'm not bothered by it, but I find it offencive when people try and talk down to me because they realise how old I am. Really, the information would be the same regardless of my age, and I don't think age necessarily indicates your knowledge in the field. I went to school with women who are much older than me; one woman was a grandmother and we had the exact same education, yet people would respect her more than me even though we're on the same playing field.
On the Importance of Being a Voice in Skin Care
Not everyone has access to dermatologists or aestheticians. One, they may not be able to afford it or they don't have insurance. If they're 13 years old, their parents might not be taking them to the dermatologist, my parents weren't! So I just think about what I would be like to be that person and not know. I think it's really important to share that information for those who wouldn't have access to it otherwise.
