An Interview with Clare & Rebecca - founders of Balance Me Skincare
How did Balance Me first start and what was your inspiration? Long term stresses and 21st century fast-paced living had taken its toll on our health and skin. We wanted to effect change and we were one of the pioneering brands to embrace natural, high performance skincare and prove it worked. Fast forward 15 years and over 60 awards and we still fundamentally believe that skincare is self-care.
What do you enjoy most about working together? We trust each other, we inspire each other and we share the same passion for our products.
How important has the support from other women been for you?
Network and collaborate with like-minded individuals and brands. The sharing economy is so powerful, especially among female entrepreneurs. We celebrate each other’s success. It’s fun, exciting and contagious.
What is your number one skincare top tip? Take a few minutes each day to cleanse, nourish and protect your skin. That’s why we created Balance Me. Because skincare is self-care.
If you could only choose one Balance Me product to take on a desert island what would you choose and why?
Our Stellar Balm. It’s brimming with antioxidants and can be used to all over to replenish and protect any dryness.
What does the future hold for Balance Me?
Some extremely exciting skincare innovation and a focus on customer-facing experiential activity that focuses on self-care and wellness.
And finally, what is your ‘me time’ moment?
Clare: swimming in my local heated lido. It re-energises me.
Rebecca: yoga; it stills my mind and strengthens my body.
