I still remember sitting on that high school bus when the “cool kid” came up to me and asked “whats up with your skin, don’t you wash your face?” back in those days there were no #acnepositivity influencers on Instagram (who am I kidding, there was no Instagram back then but I don’t want to age myself) and one thing I know now is a lot of my skin issues had nothing to do with my skincare routine. After I tried “everything” (only prescription medications) I finally was put on Accutane and it worked! I had clear skin along with all of the other side effects, but I was no longer hiding my face in the high school halls. I even remember an older student also riddled with acne asked me “how did you clear your skin?!” funny how the world works cause now she is also a successful spa owner in Toronto!
Throughout college I fell in love with skincare, and sold skincare and cosmetics part time, (mostly to get it at a discount for myself) and I learned the basics. During this time, I also fell in love with tanning beds (give me a break, it was the early 2000’s when tanning beds were cool) Talk about take 1 step forward and 2 steps back!
It wasn’t until around 2010 when I learned about spray tanning and I loved getting a deep bronzed glow in about 10 mins flat. I loved it so much, I started a mobile spray tanning business “Spray Tanz Mobile Boutique” in 2014 and continued with selling skincare full time along with spray tanning.
I can still remember the moment that changed everything for me … I was trekking up the 400 to teach a new client the basics of skincare and how to do a simple makeup look. As I entered her home, I stumbled over the toys in my high heels and sat down with my shy new client and her young daughter watching our every move. By the end of the 2 hours, the young mother couldn’t take her eyes off of herself! She was smiling, confident, and blossomed into a whole new person right before my eyes! She did not buy 1 thing but I left there feeling like I had sold a million dollars. For one moment, I felt that I was able to help someone feel more confident and become a better version of themselves. I was on cloud 9 the entire way home. I realized the impact that confidence has on our daily lives and remember her little daughters eyes watching our every move. This is it, I thought… I want to help people feel more confident on a bigger level. I wish when I was a teenager, I would have met someone like myself who could have helped me on my journey to clear skin and confidence.
2014 – 2018 seems like a blur … completing 1 program after another, one certificate after another, hungry for information while running my business.
I wanted to create a unique, relaxing experience while delivering RESULTS!
