“My interest in skincare happened literally by accident! When I was 17 years old I was involved in a car accident and was left with severe scarring to the right side of my face. At the time, my mother told me about the use and properties of traditional aromatherapy oils. We prepared an oil blend and every day we applied and massaged it onto the scars. Today, I have no scarring on my face. This early experience triggered a strong curiosity and passion for skincare. I learned to fuse various skin products together for each and every skin need. Over time, this also taught me about people’s individual connections with their skin. I wanted to share this knowledge and when I moved to London I founded Urban Skin. I designed a vast range of signature treatments to combat the effects commonly associated with the city and to help clients deal with signs of stress, pollution and cocktail-party-lifestyles. My aim is to redress urban skin that often can look dull, dehydrated, show signs of fatigue and bring skin back to optimal condition, repairing existing damage and help it defend itself against future aging. I am truly passionate about passing on information that works inside and out. Our face is not only the mirror of our soul but in most cases it also allows us to see how well we have been looking after our bodies and minds.”
