In this month’s column, skin health expert Louise Thomas-Minns, Founder of Louise Thomas Skin Care, shares her skin story – and is urging people to share theirs
Authenticity is at the heart of what we do here at Louise Thomas Skin Care and we want to share our skin stories with you and hear yours! As a tween/early teen I didn’t suffer with any skin issues. It was at the age of 17 whilst studying for my early beauty and skin qualifications I was hit with acne. I remember thinking this is the worst thing that could be happening to me at this time! I’m about to enter into an industry where how you look is so important and am meant to be helping others with their skin and I have a face full of Acne!
My cheeks were the worst. They just never healed. I hid behind makeup and felt embarrassed when I was giving clients advice on their skin health when I was suffering so much with mine but it was actually the best thing as it’s made me the expert I am today and led me down this path to being a skin care formulator too.
I went on to work for an international medical grade skin care company as a business development manager and trainer for other therapists and those in the medical profession.
The whole time throughout my early career into my 30’s the acne stayed with me. I had rude remarks from other professionals and peers over the years but it just made me more determined and empathetic for those who had any skin issue they were battling. It led me to develop my signature facial some 18 years ago as I was seeing success in treating my own skin and opening the skin therapy business and now the range!
