Inspiring Conversations with Kenya Dalton of Perfect Rx Skincare

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kenya Dalton.

Hi Kenya, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
The skin is the first thing someone notices about you, it’s the first thing you notice about yourself. Two years ago, before I started my skincare company, I was battling with my confidence due to my skin. I never dealt with acne in the past, and I definitely didn’t know outside factors and stress could trigger issues within your skin.

Eventually, I did what every eighteen-year-old would do at the time, looked online for a solution. I tried everything from lemons, to toothpaste, to apple cider vinegar, etc. I tried every product at the store and even visited other skin specialists but nothing consistent. The list could go on forever, and every at-home remedy I tried made it worse.

Insecure with my looks, the pandemic gave me a chance to be alone and really treat my skin to get my confidence back. I begin doing all types of research. I learned about products and ingredients for months and did test trials with people to ensure the products worked.

On April 25, 2020, I released my most popular product, the brightening bar soap, which went viral and crashed my website in 11 minutes. Seeing the overflow of support and seeing how many other people wanted to clear their skin too made me feel so secure in what I was doing. This is how the business began!

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
If anyone says an entrepreneur is easy… it’s not. I was not prepared to have thousands of orders.

Social media is such a big influence these days and I was not prepared mentally or physically for all the traffic my website was bringing in. I went from selling 20 orders a month to thousands!

I was in school, working a regular 9-5, and trying to tend to a growing business that I just created myself. I started to get a lot of negative feedback, and people were angry with me because I tried to please everyone and got overwhelmed.

We’ve been impressed with Perfect Rx Skincare, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
There are so many factors of daily life that can take a toll on us mentally which affects our outer appearance.

The majority of people want to change their appearance for the acceptance of others or to be seen as what is socially known as “pretty”. In actuality, you are made in the perfect image. Perfect Rx Skincare has products made to treat various specific skin conditions and reveal your authentic beauty. You are perfect as you are.

I want every day to feel like a luxury using my products. I want customers to realize the beauty is already within them, my products are only enhancing the beauty they already radiate inside. My brand is different from other brands because everything I do comes from a place of love.

I love the feeling of a customer excited about their package or I love waking up to paragraphs and before and afters because every day, my supporters let me know I’ve helped restore their confidence. Which was my problem too in the beginning.

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
The Fulfillment Process, it’s like a therapy to be able to pack and ship orders.

When I get an order, it’s like an overwhelming feeling of emotions. I get excited to just put business cards and tissue paper in boxes because I know how happy my customers are when they receive their orders. Most of them are even excited just to order!

It’s a blessing to be a vessel presenting the world with these products.
