This month, Sharyn Anderson of Beauty Secrets shares her passion for all things skin.
Q:How long have you been in business?
A: I have been in the business for 6 years, almost two of these in my existing salon, Beauty Secrets. Having struggled with problematic skin myself, my desire to become a skin treatment therapist stemmed from a interest in my own skin from an early age. Consequently I understand how skin functions and educate others about their skin in a manner they can relate to. Skin has always been my real passion.
Q: What do you value the most in your business?
A: Quality treatments and products to give our valued clients the best possible treatment, with the best possible skincare.
Q: How do you plan your lifestyle around work?
A: I have a very supportive husband who enjoys the business side of my skin treatment centre, and he is proficient in all aspects of all the paper work! This leaves me to focus on managing the skin treatments and all the associated planning. It also enables us to have some valued family time, in which I practice what I preach- relaxation is an important part of my lifestyle.
Q: How has dermaviduals enabled you to realise your full potential?
A: The amazing results we are seeing for our clients, has really given me the confidence to help correct skin, after skin, after skin. Winter challenges the skin more than any other season, so it is very important to give it extra care and attention at this time of the year. dermaviduals bespoke skin care gives me all the tools I need to deliver results. We are always studying and learning about advances in the industry through our suppliers and industry contacts.
Q: Being based in regional NSW has its advantages and disadvantages. What attracts your area?
A: I love being part of this community, and always having familiar faces around. The people are warm, welcoming, and genuine. It’s the country hospitality, and sense of community that keeps me in Goulburn. I am always genuine and authentic, and I’m pleased to say this is noticed and people enjoy my friendly disposition.
Q: What keeps you inspired?
A: Learning and education. There is always so much more to learn to feed my passion. There is nothing more rewarding than helping someone overcome a skin condition or just making someone feel better about themself. I over deliver and under-promise. This is inspiring in itself.
Q: What is the single greatest thing you have done for your business to achieve the level of success you are currently enjoying?
A: Absolutely it has been introducing dermaviduals customised skincare. The results are amazing, and clients just love watching their special blend being created! Skin constantly changes, so I can keep my eye on my clients skin through environmental changes and developments in their lives and adapt our treatments and skincare accordingly.
Q: The industry is forever changing – how do you keep up, and how do you know what is hype and what is genuine?
A: Research from a variety of sources, and approaching industry experts on new topics and equipment of interest.
