Here we go. I decided it is important to write something about the event that changed the course of my life and determined my carrier path. While struggling with my acne and feeling a bit lost in a new country, having just moved from Holland, I was invited to a trade show in London where all big beauty and pharmaceutical brands were displayed.
My initial idea when moving to the Isle of Wight was to open a spa offering pampering and relaxing treatments for all. Instead destiny decided otherwise.
What changed my mind? Skin Analysis performed by International Institute for Anti-Ageing (iiaa) and Environ Skincare. I was invited to take a place near the scanner and a very professional lady started a short questionnaire to determine my health situation, food habits, skin history and what I would like to achieve in terms of my complexion. I explained about my ongoing battle with acne and the frustrations that came with it; whatever I tried didn’t seem to work.
She listened very carefully and took notes. An image of my face was taken and a minute later we had results. I was apprehensive at first but the images taken were so interesting, and the explanation given was so comprehensive, that I decided to give Environ and iiaa a try.
I received a recommendation based on my results, involving topical cream and face wash, Accumax (an acne fighting supplement) and Jane Iredale powder to use as a cover and treatment to improve my skin.
Two months later I couldn’t believe the difference in my skin on my face and body! I had no new breakouts, the scars on my back were disappearing and my confidence had returned.
From this point onwards, I knew that opening a skin improvement clinic was the best path for me. I was so grateful to have my dignity back and beautiful skin that didn’t need to cover up that I wanted to share my knowledge with others.
Since opening the clinic, I have held regular Skin Analysis Events for those who are interested in improving their skin.
During these clinics, a free consultation and skin analysis is offered, to understand any issues that can be present, from acne and skin sensitivity to premature ageing, deep lines and pigmentation.
After the initial consultation, a plan of action is put into place, consisting of treatments and products to make a difference and start the journey towards perfect skin. Three months later clients are invited to return for a rescan and see the results and benefits.
We are a skin improvement clinic where skin analysis is the starting point. I wish I had x-ray vision and could determine the reasons and the solutions for my clients skin problems on sight, but this scientific method of skin diagnostics is a god send.
