From a very early age, I was lucky enough to understand the importance of looking after your skin.
When I started modeling at the age of 15, it required me not only to take my appearance more seriously, it also required a professional approach as promoting “beauty” was important to my livelihood. Modeling also provided me with the opportunity to travel to many different countries, experiencing different cultures, which provided a firsthand education into the different ingredients used in skincare around the world.
This on-going education, which has spanned decades, became my passion evolving into beauty consulting for brands, publications and personal clients.
Creating the right skincare routine can be overwhelming with the different brands and ingredients available on the market, which is why I decided to put decades of knowledge into my Quick-Consult program which eliminates hours of research into product lines and saves you money on brands that don’t suit your skin type or lifestyle.
Over the years I have worked with many brands from luxury lines to drugstore finds. I will be recommending products from all different kinds of skincare brands depending on your choice of ingredients and budget.
My Quick-Consult program is a fast and easy way to fulfilling your your skin care goals. After filling out a questionnaire, I will send my recommendations for you, with a link to each product making your skincare journey as seamless as possible.
Here is the customized skincare routine for Cece Woods, Editor in Chief at 90265 Magazine who chose The Ordinary line for their no-frills, high-impact results – as well as affordable – because of the simple, but highly effective ingredients without additional additives which drive up the price point.
