After countless people continuously asked how her skin stayed so vibrant and youthful looking at the age of 41, Nikia decided that it was time to create a product to share about her daily skin care regiment. After months of lab testing, and developing, in July 2018, Nikia soft launched NKVSKIN. Not fully understanding that when you create an all-natural product developed from love that actually works, typically business soars. And since NKVSKIN launch, it has done just that. NKVSKIN currently focuses on facial oils, facial serums for problem skin and has begun to venture into facial and skin exfoliating scrub bars. As Nikia’s enthusiasm for skin care grows, she hopes to launch a total face, skin and body beauty line.
In October 2018, Nikia joined forces with 2 of her High School Alums Novella Myers and Linneal Smith who are impactful women in their own right, and they announced their initiative “This is Us Women’s Conference”. This is Us Women’s Conference was created to provide innovative experiences that inspire to heal, empower and glow up for ambitious women of color. This is Us Women’s Conference will be an annual event with the inaugural conference taking place in Baltimore, Maryland March 2019.
