Ravi's Wife Rambles
We’ve heard Ravi ramble about his skinso journey, the importance of healthy, happy skin, and why men’s health matters. But the voice who started it all? “You’re forty now, you need to start taking care of your skin. You’re starting to get lines.” We’re bringing you Ravi’s Wife Rambles, a unique perspective on skinso’s creation, hopes for the future, and unseen moments with Ravi.
What was going through your mind during that one afternoon drive when you noticed Ravi’s skin was starting to age?
That afternoon, I looked over at him and saw sunspots and fine lines around his eyes. Right away, I was thinking, “Really, where did these come from?” He has always had great skin, and never really did anything special to take care of it — other than use creams to treat his eczema. So that's when I thought, “Okay, he needs to do more. He's in his forties, so he needs to start a skin regime.” I leaned forward, took a closer look, and that's when I said, "Hunny, you need to start taking care of your skin.”
Was there a moment during skinso's conception when you first thought, "Wow, this is really happening!”
Yes, definitely. For months in early 2019, it was all discussions and ideas being thrown around. But when Ravi finally decided on launching a skincare brand, and showed me the plan and launch date, it all became real.
You've been a core part of skinso's journey. From what you've experienced, what does it take to launch a men's skincare brand?
It's definitely not an easy thing to do because it takes a lot of time, patience, and research to come up with a cool brand. You really need to enjoy the whole process and the team you're working with.
How does skinso reflect Ravi's personality and values?
skinso is all about feeling good and being happy through great skin care products. For anyone who knows Ravi, he's a happy-go-lucky guy who is always making people around him laugh and have a good time. He's a guy with a positive outlook on life, and always reminds me to not overthink things and get stressed about the small things in life because it will all work out in the end.
Where do you hope to see skinso in the future?
The future seems so far away, but right now, I'm excited about the launch, and can't wait to see it take off. I hope in the years to come, skinso puts a smile on a lot of guys' faces.
Is there a skinso product that you'll be stealing from Ravi's skincare regimen?
All of them! If he can use them, then so can I 😁
Does Ravi really ramble when he's at home with you?
HAHA — all day, everyday. Never a dull moment in the Uppal household.
