How One Woman Overcame Adversity and Found Success Through Her Passion for Skincare

Sabrina Bradley has faced adversity all her life. She was born weighing two pounds and addicted to cocaine resulting in Sabrina fighting for her life since the minute she was born. Doctors believed that it would be hard for Sabrina to have a regular life, stating that mental retardation was a strong possibility as she got older. After spending three years in the foster care system, she finally was adopted by a loving family, but the fighting didn’t stop there.

During her childhood, Sabrina was educated on her Asian and African American culture but struggled with her identity because it didn’t match what she saw in the mirror. This sparked Sabrina to dive deep into exploring not only her culture but sent her on the journey to find her biological mother in order to get the answers she needed.

As a teenager, she gravitated towards ancient, holistic skin care practices. She took the time to learn about ingredients and started to use chemistry as a therapy for herself. Her biological background inspired her to take a trip to Japan in order to learn more about their holistic approaches to skin care. As Sabrina got older and her interest in skin care grew, her adopted father encouraged her to grow a business and become an influencer. Little did she know, this would lead to the one thing she was truly looking for: her biological mother.

“It was a Sunday and one of my last clients ’ no show,” Sabrina tells Dr. Sean McMillian, Host of FOX Souls’ The Book of Sean, “So, I just sat there and said ‘you know what? I’m going to take this opportunity for myself. I shouldn’t even be working on Sunday’s anyway.’ I just stood there, and I prayed, and I said ‘God, if you’re real, please send me a sign. Please, just anything, send me a sign.” Later that evening, Sabrina got a phone call from an unknown number. “I picked up the phone and said, ‘Hi, this is Sabrina. How can I help you?’ and they said, ‘This is your mom.’”

Sabrina’s interest in holistic skincare and her adopted father’s suggestion of growing her business led to her biological mother finding her. Through the Los Angeles County database, Sabrina was contacted by a media outlet to spotlight her adversity and growing business. It was through that interview that Sabrina’s mother was able to find her contact information.

This journey has taught Sabrina the importance of believing in yourself and your understanding. “Through your pain comes your passion and love,” she says. It’s no secret that this is true for Sabrina as she has built her skincare brand, Skin by Sabrina, based on simplicity, integrity, and honesty. Remaining true to herself and her story has allowed her to help her clients remain true to their natural beauty.

“I’m not trying to be known worldwide and have everyone buy my products. I just want to help change the way people think about skincare,” Sabrina says. Within her 20 years of experience as a licensed esthetician and skincare, Sabrina has become a top-rated professional in the Los Angeles area. Skin by Sabrina continues to help educate those on the importance of maintaining a healthy skincare lifestyle no matter what adversity they may face.
