Meet Shelby Prince of No Stretch Skin Care

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shelby Prince.

Hi Shelby, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I started No Stretch Skin Care in October of 2019. The ‘No Stretch Oil’ was my first and what I thought would be my only product, which is an all-natural oil that prevents and reduces the appearance of stretch marks. It can also be used as a dark spot treatment and evens skin tone. I created this product for myself two years ago while I was pregnant with my daughter to prevent stretch marks on my stomach and reduce the appearance of the ones I already had. It was truly my holy grail as I have zero new stretch marks and removed the ones I had as a result of using this product consistently. Because it worked so well for me, I wanted to share it with the world and help others. A year later, I now have eight natural skincare products, and I am currently working on new additions. My favorite part about this journey has been helping others to feel confident and love the skin they were blessed with.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
While becoming an entrepreneur has been so rewarding, there has definitely been some bumps in the road. I didn’t know how much work it took to run a business. I would say one of my biggest struggles has been learning to juggle it all. At times I have gotten overwhelmed between being a full-time mother, working a full-time job, and running every aspect of the business. There is truly not enough time in the day! I have been able to cope with this by becoming more organized and implementing more structure in my day to day tasks.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
No Stretch Skin Care provides 100% natural skincare products, specializing in prevention/reducing the appearance of stretch marks. In addition, we have a variety of products such as whipped body butter, facial/body scrub and lip balm to name a few. What sets us apart from others is the fact that we use 100% natural ingredients, and we take pride in helping others to become confident in themselves and love the skin that they were blessed with. I am most proud of all the individuals that have trusted my products and had life-changing experiences. Some of the testimonials have literally brought me to tears. I am so appreciative of everyone who has supported me and helped my business grow, and I look forward to adding more products to the roster. In the near future, we will also begin offering natural facials.

Before we let you go, we’ve got to ask if you have any advice for those who are just starting out?
For those who are just starting out, my advice is to believe in your brand, believe you are capable of taking on entrepreneurship and give it your very best. Don’t be too hard on yourself and remember to ‘stop and smell the roses’. Always appreciate where you are on your journey and remember that good things take time. You will have bad days but the amazing days will outweigh them. Through it all, you have to remember your ‘why’ and keep working to fulfill your goals. Never give up. I wish I would have had someone to tell me that when I began No Stretch Skin Care. At times I have been very hard on myself, felt like I wasn’t as far as I should be and allowed my anxiety to get the best of me. Now I can truly say I appreciate this journey because it has helped me to grow in so many ways.
