The idea for Cay Skin formed when Winnie had a bad experience on a modeling shoot in the Bahamas. “I got really badly sunburned, and it was so bad they had to have doctors come and give me injections for pain and inflammation.”
“I realized the reason I didn’t wear sunscreen and no one on set wanted me to wear sunscreen was because of that ugly purple cast it can give you.”
“Especially for someone who has melanin, you look ashy,” she added.
“I didn't want anyone to forgo wearing sunscreen just because they didn't like how it looked on their skin. I wanted to blend the world of sunscreen and skincare into one so that you wanted to wear sunscreen every day. Because it’s very important.”
It was a memorable moment when Winnie returned to Jamaica after launching her skincare line. “Bringing it back home to Jamaica and showing my grandparents and being in the backyard with my products… the backyard with the ingredients that inspired my brand was a full-circle moment.”
