Rising Stars: Meet Jocastia Mister

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jocastia Mister.

Hi Jocastia, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself
As a child, I was always fascinated with women and their natural beauty, now, don’t get me wrong, I love makeup and how it enhances your beauty, but there is something about a fresh face that stands out to me. I’m from a small rural area in Illinois, O’Fallon. I always loved to hear people tell me that I had great skin, but what they didn’t know was I suffered from terrible acne which bothered me. I knew I wanted to change this, my obsession with skin care began when I was a senior in high school. I took it upon myself to learn how I could treat my skin safely. The medical scare I had during my sophomore year of college pushed me to change my lifestyle. The change was expensive but it was important that all of my body products were natural. Finding natural products was hard and it clicked, I should make my own. Along my holistic journey is when I began my self love journey. Creating all of the products helped me find the joy and passion that I was lacking. In 2018, I launched Jo’s Evolving Beauty to help others learn more about proper skin care and how it is self love.

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?
As an entrepreneur, I do not think that I can say there aren’t any struggles. I struggle everyday with wondering if I am doing the right thing and if this is really something that I want to do in order to break generational curses. Being someone who is doing something off the strength of this being something that I want to do is hard. Being the first in my family to actually go out and chase my dreams is something that I struggle with everyday because no one really understands why I am doing this. Trying to work a 9-5, have a social life as well as running a business is one thing that really makes me sit and think, but I wouldn’t give it up because it has shaped me into the person that I am today.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a licensed esthetician, specializing in facials and waxing. I am known for facials and natural body products. What I am most proud of thus far, would be how far I’ve come and all of the things that I have accomplished. I am trying to make my younger self proud in all aspects of life, I am doing things for myself that I was not able to do as a child and am also doing those things so that my nephew and nieces can see that it is possible to go after your dreams.
