Advanced Skin Health Therapist
CIDESCO, BABTAC, ITEC, CERT ED
International Institute of Anti-Ageing
I have been a beauty therapist for 33 years, qualifying in 1982 from Great Yarmouth College. I began working for Steiner and Pampers in Norwich before joining the cruise ships, working in the spa Spa for 3 years. I worked in Bermuda for 7 years as a therapist before coming back to Norfolk where I set up my own successful salon in Hethersett for 14 years. During that time I completed my degree in teaching and combined working in the industry with teaching part-time at Great Yarmouth College for 6 years.
I have a wealth of experience in all aspects of beauty therapy and still offer most beauty treatments, over the last 10 years specialising in optimising skin health, working with the International Institute of Anti-Ageing (IIAA) and offering Advanced Nutrition Programme supplements which promote healthy skin from feeding within; Environ products containing active ingredients with progressive levels of Vitamin A to fortify the skin topically to provide a holistic approach to radiant and healthy skin; and Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics to protect and aid healthy skin on top. I work with all 3 brands as they combine to form a total system of skin healthcare and their constant scientific research and development provides updates and refresher training every year.
I work closely with Environ skin advisors to offer my clients a targeted and personalised skin care regime, I hold regular skin analysis events where powerful Visia Imaging Technology captures your skin information and assesses problem areas. Treatments is then targeted towards specific goals, whether it is pigmentation concerns, sun damage, blemishes, capillary damage, wrinkles, scars, imperfections or congested pores. I am passionate about Environ and it's benefits due to it's extensive research and scientific backing to promote healthy skin, particularly in the incidence of sun-related skin disorders, as this becomes a growing Worldwide problem. And believe me, it's never too late to start!
