What inspires you the most, today?
I find my greatest inspiration in the many individuals who entrust me with their skincare journeys. Unfortunately, many regard skincare merely as “girly stuff” or believe that dermatologists alone are qualified to handle skincare needs. However, skincare is a deeply emotional subject that can significantly impact how we feel about ourselves. When you find a skincare routine that suits you, your self-confidence and self-image can improve dramatically. While dermatologists are highly skilled in the medicinal aspects of skincare, there are many gentle and effective techniques that a licensed esthetician such as myself can provide.
All skincare professionals who are passionate about helping others with their skin have a positive and necessary place in the beauty industry.
What does BEAUTY truly mean to you?
Through the years of enduring bullying for my acne, I’ve come to realize that only you can determine your own definition of beauty. It’s crucial to be your own ally and admirer, regardless of where you’re at in your life. For me, true beauty is found within oneself and is of utmost importance. While makeup, skincare, and beauty tools can improve physical appearance, they can never replace the significance of compassion and understanding. Ultimately, it’s these qualities that make a person truly dazzling in my eyes.
