Courtney Dunlop is a former magazine editor (Jane, Marie Claire) and beauty industry editorial director (Clinique, Aveda), who moved back to her hometown of Springfield, MO after 16 years in New York City. When she couldn’t find all of her favorite skincare products in town, she opened Good Skin Day with the goal to offer the best in indie skincare and provide expert, unbiased advice. Courtney thinks the ultimate good skin day is when you look fresh, dewy, and healthy, and she believes anyone can have beautiful skin at any age.
