My Story

I grew up in Southern Bohemia, discovering plants that work wonders for teenage skin.

As a start to my career in medical science, I trained as a beauty therapist, opened my first beauty salon in 1991 and worked for the prestige brands of Shiseido and La Prairie. My MSc. degree involved self-tanning and my PhD led me to explore skin science and the effects of menopause on facial skin.

As an independent skincare expert, I promote principles of good practice in skincare to enhance skin health and self-esteem. My work combines natural touch-based therapies including facial massage, facial reflexology and acupressure, facial yoga, with mind-body therapies including embodiment and mindfulness. As regular facial massage is new to Britain, I have developed my signature anti-ageing serum and massage technique to bring professional results at home. This approach is new and delivers youthful looking skin and relaxation.

In my 30s, I travelled the world searching for new skincare and wound care technologies for Smith & Nephew Wound Management – a dream job where the world of patients’ psychology, healing and commercial aspects of medical skincare came together. It was by looking at skin from a medical angle that I experienced first hand how important both science and “the human factor” are for skin health and well-being. Advanced science and technologies can heal the skin but caring human touch helps to re-connect with ourselves and our environment.

I launched my private practice in 2009 in Beverley, East Yorkshire. After my daughter Anya was born, I decided to go back to helping people to feel good about their appearance and look after their skin.
