Hello, I am Kami, a world renowned dancer living in a little coast side town called Montara in Northern California. After years of non-stop touring, my body was depleted, unbalanced and stopped me in my tracks. Although I have struggled with very sensitive skin my entire life, ten years ago I began to break out in extreme rashes covering my entire face and body.The lifestyle of a touring dancer had taken it’s toll.
This lead me to years of researching what was causing these outbreaks and how to stop them. I changed to a healthier diet, I took up the practice of meditation, I learned how to take time off and allow my body to recover. My breakouts become less severe, yet I was still having breakouts every couple of weeks.
During this time I switched to using skin care products that were marketed as “all natural”. Yet, I learned that most of these products still contained harmful ingredients. I put so much effort into what I was putting into my body and mind that I hadn’t considered the ingredients I was putting on my skin.
Much like my dancing has changed over the years to a more holistic approach of movement, my skin care routine began to take on a holistic approach focused on organic alternatives to chemical-filled products.
My life as an artist taught me that if you don’t see what you want in the world, you have to make it. I began to create simple formulas for myself and I could immediately tell I was on the right path. My rashes were no longer and issue and my sensitive skin was happier than ever. I actually started to get complemented on how great my skin looked!
I began to gift some of my creations to friends and family who suggested I began a skin care business, but my full time dance schedule made it impossible.
Then came 2020…
Due to the pandemic, all of my planned workshops and intensives were cancelled. I took a great deal of time to sit and reflect on what path I wanted to take and what I wanted to contribute to the world. This was the first time I was forced to remain at home and it allowed me to further study herbalism and the healing powers of botanicals.
I created Rogue Star Beauty to share my love of nourishing botanical potions with the intention to promote empowerment through self-care. I appreciate your support and wish you a happy and healthy future.
