About Us

Be Informed – be:skinformed

Hello, my name is Sonia Knight, the founder of Be:Skinformed.  I am 34 years old, married with 2 children. I have a University of Wales certified post-graduate diploma, Dermatology in Clinical Practice.

I should probably add that I have also had a brush with hyperpigmentation; I’ll let you in on it shortly.

What is Be:Skinformed all about? 

For the last year I’ve been working to make www.BeSkinformed.com a one-stop destination for information on safer products for various skin hyperpigmentation and discolouration issues as well as updates from the beauty industry, beauty and skin care tips, product reviews and a lot more.

My and my team’s goal is to deliver expert, authoritative, actionable and most importantly safe advice for everything to do with having dark spots or skin lightening. We have done this by incorporating well-researched solutions from other beauty experts, doctors and professionals on safe skin lightening from all over the world.

How was Be:Skinformed Born?

Unlike many young people of my age, I had flawless skin back then. I, therefore, wasn’t overly conscious of how I looked because I was obviously the envy of many. Later in my late 20s; a husband and one child later, the same could not be said of my skin. What started with a few pimples escalated to be a really bad case of acne. I scoured the net and asked around in an attempt to contain the situation. After paying a hefty price with my money, comfort, appearance and self-esteem, I ended up with a somewhat better look.

Is there a way that this could have been a better experience? This is the question that led me to spend countless hours searching for safer solutions to completely restore my skin tone and help others out there who were going through the same or worse experiences. Internet search did not fully satisfy my curiosity. That is why I enrolled for an online course in Dermatology in Clinical Practice from Diploma Msc, a partner of the University of Wales, UK.

The wealth of knowledge I gained gave me a better understanding of what almost a third of the entire world’s population that suffers from illnesses that directly affect the skin go through. After graduating, I had the confidence to start the Be:Skinformed website. Looking at the close to 180 countries that we are catering for worldwide, and the progress I have made with my own skin, I am convinced that this was one of the best decisions I have made.

Why Skin Lightening?

There isn’t so much you can do to hide your skin. Apart from being the largest organ in your body and a protective cover, it is basically the first thing that someone sees at a glance. Everyone wants to show off their beautiful, flawless skin. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of skin that suffers from hyperpigmentation or other forms of discolourations. The flaws stick out like a sore thumb and you are likely to feel less confident and more conscious of your look.

Skin lightening products are beneficial in curbing skin issues like uneven tone, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, tanning, etc. Since people may not have the patience to wait long enough for their skin to regain its colour or get a fair complexion, the need for using safe skin whitening products comes in handy. For many, simply improving their appearance is more than enough to skyrocket their self-esteem.

On the other hand, every skin colour is beautiful in its own way. However, there is no denying the fact that fair complexion receives much more appreciation in the society. While skin lightening is a controversial subject, there are people who still find enough reasons to get fair skin.

With such a ready market, dangerous skin lightening products have found their ways to the shelves, exposing unsuspecting consumers to a host of dangers and side effects.

Whether you seek fairer skin or just want to get rid of skin flaws, Be:Skinformed seeks to focus on providing you with ‘No Fluff But Facts’ to enable you to do it within safe limits. We aim to create a small bible for all your skin whitening queries, dilemmas, and information.
