Glow Skin + Body was started by four and a half years ago Georgiana, a solo therapist, who treated her clients out of her tiny home in Doveton, in South East Melbourne. Since then Glow Skin + Body has flourished and so has Georgiana’s family, as she welcomed a baby boy not long after opening. “As a result, I outgrew my first treatment room and have been able to build a new stand-alone clinic on my property which will allow the Glow Skin + Body team to finally grow once again! This new space I have created is for my clients to have that self-indulgent & glowing salon feel, even though we are based in a suburban setting. It’s all ready to go, minus some finishing touches! This is just what my clients need, as a lot of them are busy working mums and dads. Glow Skin + Body’s new clinic will provide them with a little retreat that works with their lifestyles as we offer after-hours and are close to home. I make sure all my clients feel that they are important, my treatments are tailored to what they most need and that they never feel rushed out the door. I also love to educate them on their skin profiles and I take the time to make sure they understand what is happening and why it’s happening. I do this so that they can apply it in their daily lives in order to get the best results and to help them add good habits for their skin that will be with them for a lifetime.”
What’s your favourite thing about your job?
“My favourite thing about my job is that my clients put so much trust in me with something as important as their skin. I feel a lot of pride seeing my clients walk out of Glow feeling more confident and happy with their skin. I truly enjoy being able to take my clients on an educational journey about their bodies and how everyday actions and the way we treat our bodies is all evident in the condition of our skin. It is the best gift to be able to teach them how they can best take care of themselves beyond the work we undertake in the clinic and not to rely on fads, myths or what the latest influencer might be spruiking. What works for some does not work for all and our skin needs tailored care.”
What is your personal mantra?
“I have two: ‘action conquers fear’ and ‘if you don’t start somewhere, then I assure you, you’re going nowhere’. Anyone that knows me personally, knows that I live by these. This is how I was able to start my business and navigate the challenges that have come my way.”
How has dermaviduals assisted your business?
“dermaviduals was that missing piece of the puzzle for Glow Skin + Body! When I first came across dermaviduals, I was heavily pregnant and it was just not the right time to introduce a new approach to my business. That did however, allow me time to do some research on dermaviduals and discover that it aligned with what I wanted for my clients and my personal growth. Soon after giving birth, Beth [a dermaviduals BDM] did my prescription and the rest is history. It has completely changed the way I look at skin, treat skin and educate myself & my clients on all things skin.”
What is your favourite dermaviduals product and why?
“This is a hard question! I think right now I’m loving DMS Mask with Vitamins. It’s helping my skin so much during these stressful times we are all facing. The masks are packed with all required antioxidants and strengthen the skin barrier. I love how it leaves the skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated the next day.”
What is your number one skin care tip?
“Never forget your sunscreen! I live by my advice on this one and one of my clients actually did a quote for me: ‘My signature scent is dermaviduals sunscreen’!
Any last words?
“I am privileged to have Glow Skin + Body chosen for Clinic of the Month and am very grateful to all my wonderful clients who let me do what I love to do every day. I had only just recently been the runner up for dermaviduals Consumers’ Choice and Junior Corneotherapist of the Year and to now have another wonderful acknowledgement really makes me proud of what I have built here within Glow Skin + Body! I cannot wait for all my clients to experience our brand new Glow Skin + Body clinic and to take the next steps in growing my team, watch this space!”
