This month, Shellie Pearson of Asthetique Skin Care shares her passion for all things skin.
Q: How long have you been in business and what drew you to the beauty industry in the first place?
A: I have been in business for 6 years, 4 of those in my existing clinic, Asthetique Skin Care.
I was drawn to the beauty industry back in high school. I have always struggled with problematic skin and have wanted to correct it, understand how and why skin behaves and help others in the same situation. Skin has always been my real passion.
Q: What do you value the most in your business?
A: Definitely staff are my number one priority, with clients a very close number two. Without my wonderful staff I would not be where I am today.
Q: How do you find the right balance between your personal and professional life?
A: This is something that will always remain a juggling act. It doesn’t matter what type of work a mother does, the balance between family & work will always need to be worked on.
I definitely could not do what I do without the support of my husband and again, my staff.
Q: How has dermaviduals assisted your business?
A: dermaviduals has been a great addition to my business.
It has been very exciting for me to find a company and product that believe in what I do and perform to get the results I strive for. Keeping the skin’s health and integrity at all times is paramount to what I do and education, education, education!
Q: Being based in regional Australia has advantages and disadvantages. What attracts you to this area?
A: I am a country girl so family & friends attract me to the area.
Q: What keeps you inspired professionally?
You can never stop learning! I love to study & learn.
It is also the results you achieve with your clients. There is nothing more rewarding than helping someone overcome a skin condition or just making someone feel better about themselves.
Q: If you had one piece of advice for people considering a career in the beauty industry, what would it be?
A: Have a real passion for it.
Q: New products and equipment enter the beauty industry almost daily. How do you keep up with this and how do you determine what is hype and what is genuine?
A: Research, research, research. If you don’t know about something then learn about it. I also seek advice from other professionals in the industry as well as people in business in general. 95% of this industry is hype. I definitely trust my gut instinct & am not forced into anything I don’t feel comfortable with.
