My name is Alina M. and this is my story...
Sometimes fate leads you down surprising, unknown paths to your life's mission. My path to the world of skincare and wellness was not an easy one. As a creative person, design and visual art are my passion and have always been a big part of my life. I'm blessed and grateful to be a founding partner of the coolest interior design studio in New York - Asthetique. I had my future as a designer mapped out.
Then, at the age of thirty, a breast cancer diagnosis changed my life. Breast cancer, chemo, a double mastectomy, fear and doubt break you down but they also give you an opportunity to build yourself back up.
I still ask "why me?" sometimes, but rather than let self pity define my life I chose happiness.
For me, that meant creating something magical to share with the world. But what?
Eight sessions of chemo (and living in New York City) left my skin fragile and dehydrated. It was such a challenge to bring my skin back to life that I realized I had to launch a skincare brand. We spent 2 years developing 5 core products that nourish and heal damaged skin.
With my breast cancer in remission, I owe this second chance at life to my family’s love and the achievements of modern medicine. I firmly believe that creating great skincare products requires striking the proper balance between nature and the achievements of modern science.
AMEŌN embodies that belief and is about keeping your sunny side up, being healthy and beautiful. Indulge yourself. You deserve it!
