Why did you start Face It Today?
"I have always known that I wanted to help motivate, inspire and empower girls that they can do anything they choose to do in life. I wasn’t sure exactly which form it would take, but I knew it would happen eventually. Personally, I have overcome adversity in my own life, and believe with every fiber of who I am, that WE can Face anything head on and come out on the other side even better than before.
Whether it’s a difficult, life altering challenge or a really bad day, life can be hard at times. Unfortunately, self-esteem and confidence issues start as young as 8 years old, once social interactions begin, and when puberty hits. While this is a serious issue, building and inspiring self-esteem should also be fun, as well as, a beneficial learning experience." - Amy LLoyd, CEO & Founder

Who are you working with to develop your products?
We are grateful to be working with one of the best botanical labs around, they have been in business for 25+ years, work with professionals only and align with our brand mission, to bring only the best quality to our girls.
Why did you choose the products you did?
We wanted a simple, natural skin care routine for girls to start learning how to take care of their skin. Wash their face in the morning and apply SPF/moisturizer on every day, and do the same simple two-step process night; wash and moisturize. We also have specific products for acne prone skin. After many months of trials, we landed on the perfect products to best serve our mission and our girls!
Are the products organic?

Have the products been tested on animals?
No way! You will see the no cruelty to animals symbol on all our products.

Can boys use your product?

What are the profit margins in building a FIT skin care business?
We will offer a percentage to each of our Brand Leaders for products they sell. Girls will not be allowed to hold inventory, as this will be a sell as they go model. Our goal is to empower by earning money and make the model as beneficial to the girls and their future as possible.

Like any business, what you put into it, you get out of it. The time commitment will be different for everyone. We will have ongoing meetings, training, etc to find what works best.
