Ashley Weatherford is a self-identified nerd with an affinity for skincare and beauty that stems from an early age. She is recognized by Allure magazine and Beauty High as one of 2013’s top beauty bloggers and August Skin is praised by Refinery29 as a “New Beauty Blog Worth Bookmarking.”
Introduced to steam facials and clay masks by her father, Ashley spent many childhood evenings pampering herself while guzzling Nesquik and watching Nickelodeon. Her exhaustive attention to skin proved to be fortuitous as she battled overactive sebaceous glands and offensive pore sizes through her teens and early twenties.
After graduating from Northwestern University, Ashley traded the Midwest for the east coast. Her penchant for beauty continued, as evidenced by the enabling sales team at Sephora and American Express. When she’s not testing products or writing, Ashley is nose-deep in the work of a twentieth century literary legend or wide-eyed watching a Bravo reality show unfold.
