To an Insecure Girl from the Guy Who Finds Her Incredible
I’m fortunate enough to wake up each morning with a strong, vivacious, and fully-functioning body — a blessing, which I’ve learned should never be taken for granted.
However, for some people, health is a fragile fantasy or distant memory. Their days are filled with stark white hospital wards, tubes and monitors, radiation treatments, and chemotherapy. They’ve forgotten how it feels to not constantly battle the weakness overtaking their bodies.
They are cancer patients. This is their reality.
While I can’t fathom the agony they endure, my heart goes out to these fighters. The physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion must feel beyond overwhelming, yet somehow their brave, beautiful souls press on.
Almost 10 years ago, I watched one such fighter in action.
Her name was — no, is — Kalyn. She was my childhood friend, surrogate older sister, and the most incredible person I’ve ever met. Cancer could never steal her spirit. Still, I wish she hadn’t suffered so intensely.
The sad truth is, even potentially life-saving medical care can produce painful side-effects. Chemotherapy, for instance, is notorious for hair loss. But, the lesser known skin reactions must be equally demoralizing. These aren’t just your typical break-outs either. We’re talking acute dryness, flakiness, and redness caused by chemo’s cocktail of antibiotics, steroids, and other potent drugs.
With everything else cancer patients face on a daily basis, skin irritation should NOT have to be an added stressor. They deserve the confidence of a glowing complexion.
So, when I was approached to test out Lindi Skin, a line of facial products created to therapeutically counteract the harshness of chemo, I jumped at the opportunity. My skin may be sensitive and acne-prone, but I have no reason to complain. Therefore, I’m honored to spread the word about a product, which will help inspiring individuals — like Kalyn — see their vibrant inner strength reflected on their faces.
Lindi Skin manufactures and distributes clinically-proven skin care to soothe and relieve the residual effects of cancer treatments. Plus, this company believes that the power of feeling beautiful can actually improve overall health.
The creation of Lindi Skin started with my experience watching friends go through cancer treatment. They expected the nausea, fatigue, and hair loss associated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, but they were not aware of the impact that these therapies would have on their skin. In discovering there was not one line of skin care products specifically developed for people with cancer, it occurred to me that someone had to create one. And that person ended up being me.
In formulating Lindi Skin products, we aligned with dermatologists, oncologists, nurses, patients, and skincare formulators to create products that can treat even the most sensitive of skin. Our formulas are unique, gentle, and soothing. We use the finest ingredients for the ultimate hydration.
We are excited to offer the rejuvenating power of our products to everyone. Our products, elegant and luxurious, are intended to help you look and feel incredible.

Lindi Skin’s healing philosophy is grounded in four simple yet powerful words: HOPE. LONGEVITY. PURITY. LIFE.
And, the following products promote just that…
1. Face Wash:
“This gentle alternative to soap cleanses without stripping and works to achieve optimal pH balance. After rinsing, you can actually feel a veil of moisture laying the foundation for smooth, healthy skin. Use as often as needed on the face, neck, and scalp.”
2. Face Serum
“Formulated with the highest concentration of LSA Complex, — replete with lavender botanicals, antioxidants, and vitamins — this serum provides beneficial moisture and ultimate comfort to compromised skin on the face, neck, and chest. The unique, non-oily formula glides on silky smooth and begins restoring immediately.”
3. Eye Hydrator
“This moisturizing gel is formulated to improve skin tone. Its effectiveness lies in its ability to attract moisture to the delicate skin surrounding the eyes. Apply a small quantity around the eyes and dab lightly with fingertips.”
4. Lip Balm
“Enriched with Vitamin E and natural extracts to provide a protective layer over parched lips, this non-greasy formula works double-duty to keep nail cuticles healthy and intact, too. After using on lips, simply work the balm into cuticles.”
Cancer claims lives. That’s a heart-breaking reality. But there’s one thing this dreaded disease can’t take away — beauty.
Both inner AND outer.
Suck it, Cancer!
(Oh, and just in case you were wondering…Lindi Skin made my face glow too! So, there’s that.)
