Hey Buttercups! I wanted to start off my blog journey by giving you all a little bit more insight on who I am. This will include a slight recap of some life struggles of course, because what would life be without those. But most importantly, it will show you how still, I RISE. I am India, owner of Buttercreme Beauty and jack of many trades okurrrr. My pronouns are She/Her/Hers and I am from Flint, MI. I graduated from Michigan State University in 2019 with a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies, focusing on community governance and advocacy, with a minor in human behavior and social services. A mouth full, I know lol but I am currently an MSW Candidate at the University of Michigan. Sometime soon, you will be able to add me to the pool of Black female therapists.
Losing my legal guardian at a young age, being affected by the foster care system from ages 13-21& being in a toxic relationship all made me feel lost. I started drinking more, developing both intimate & non-intimate relationships (good and bad), smoking more, partying & just being. I think I felt so numb & just wanted to feel what I could. Now, I'm able to see how those setbacks have made me who I am. Talk about GROWTH okay, b/c back then I didn't think that there was gonna be light at the end of the tunnel.
Girl Spit it Out!
I say all of that to say that I really let myself go for a minute, but I didn't realize that would change my skin. In 2017, I randomly developed eczema dark spots/patches which caused my skin to become dry, irritated and cracked. All of which made me feel insecure about showing off my skin. I invested so much money into store bought products, and the results weren't worth it. While I found some products to be better than others, they all lacked long-term moisture and actual absorption. Because of this, I wanted to create a brand whose primary focus was moisture -Buttercreme Beauty
