Life and Work with Celeste Thomas

Today we’d like to introduce you to Celeste Thomas.

Celeste Thomas is a Registered Nurse and holistic skincare expert. Her genetically acne prone skin is the vehicle for her devout exploration into the ever-evolving skincare industry. Celeste utilizes her medical expertise, passion for holistic wellness, and her constant quest for knowledge to meticulously comb through the noise to find what truly works.

She is a human guinea pig, testing anything and everything she deems worthwhile to help her community find the best products, practices, and treatments on the market. She enlists countless skincare professionals to treat her skin and expand her knowledge, cherry-picking the most effective tips, tricks, and pearls of wisdom from each.

Having tested hundreds of products, ranging from stinging prescriptions to sticky green herbalist concoctions, Celeste has produced a trusted list of True Spoon approved products and ingredients that are ever evolving with the skincare landscape.

After receiving a bachelors of science in nursing, Celeste went on to perfect the skin of celebrities in Los Angeles for over six years. In her nursing practice, she worked with clients of various skin types, conditions, ages, and ethnicities. Cystic acne suffers, mothers with melasma, brides with blackheads, and best friends looking for wrinkle reduction all sought skin solace in Celeste’s care. This diverse understanding of skin allows her to connect and communicate authentically with a global audience.

In 2014 she launched The True Spoon, a holistic skincare blog chronicling her journey from acne ridden to skin confident. Her personal struggle with acne inspired a career centered around skincare education where she provides a strategy for clear healthy skin.

Has it been a smooth road?
A major hurdle in my path has been trying to fulfill other peoples expectations of what I should do. I have always been a creative, literally since birth! My single parent mother wanted me to have a stable profession and had a hand in suppressing any creative career aspirations. Nursing was a common profession for women in my family, it wasn’t my passion but it was stable. I became a nurse and continued to work in the field for seven years because of it what I thought I needed to do to provide for myself. I am so thankful for my nursing license and the knowledge I’ve derived from that aspect of my career but I’ve always known that it wasn’t my soul’s purpose.

Since completely shifting into full-time entrepreneurship, I feel like im finally free to create content that is in line with my soul purpose and will truly impact the lives of my community. My advice for anyone, especially young women, is to quiet your mind and listen to that internal voice, the one thats truthful, and take little action steps to live in line with that voice.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with The True Spoon – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
I inspire skin confidence through education, demonstration, and self-compassion from the perspective of an RN and nontoxic lifestyle advocate on my social media platforms, blog, workshops and more.

Every single DM, message, and comment from a community member who’s expressed that the information on TTS has improved their skin confidence is my proudest moment.

Often it feels as if the media, by and large, is only focused on the obstacles faced by women, but we feel it’s important to also look for the opportunities. In your view, are there opportunities that you see that women are particularly well positioned for?
Women are the ultimate visionary connectors, their ability to bring physical and intellectual life into this world gives them every opportunity. We can dream about it and do it.
