“Are you caught in the rapid mill of life … feeling overwhelmed, like there is no tomorrow?”
Putting others first while you’ve got a million things going on, time management is stressful. On top of this your skin is suffering and you find it difficult to figure out something that works for you
You are regularly thumbing through your favorite magazine skimming over celebrity reviews raving about their to-go cleanser or mask (which doesn’t necessarily works for you...) or you just love the next best thing on the shelves and you want to give that a go …
But your much loved skin fix leaves you more irritated… & you’re on to the next product, wasting more time, spending more money [acne, allergies, irritated skin, anyone?] I hear you 👂
You just need to know what works for you with max results
Well, this is the right place!
I’m Karen and I advise and consult women who are struggling with their ‘good skin days’ ready to embrace their beautiful best life through Corneotherapy - the progressive inside-out approach towards skin conditions and age management. I give you the facts and tools on what you need to know while transforming the way you think about cosmetics keeping your skin happy along the way.
I’ve gained a few feathers on my cap such as being Shortlisted for best new clinic2015 in New Zealand by NZ beauty association Best Before/After results with Dermaviduals in- clinic awards & got kudos being Corneotherapist of the year 2019-2020. 🍾🍾🍾
I’ve nurtured & centralized corneotherapy over 10 years and stepped away from the anti-ageing hype. This beauty movement is a skin journey, incorporating inside-out skin health giving you sustainable and realistic results towards age-management and inflammatory skin conditions. #Gut-brain-skin axis
“Ageing is out of your control. HOW you handle it though, is in your hands” - Diane von Furstenberg Brains & Beauty - coupled with navigating skin care.
SomethingI missed during my earlier career in Belgium.
My passion for personal care and love for traveling flowed into becoming a flight attendant and through work and travels, cosmetics at my fingertips, easily accessible. An ethos originating from my early years experimenting - in my omoe’sbathroom - with her toiletries, thinking nostalgic gold case lipsticks, old-fashioned boar-bristle hair brush, flacons of perfumes, & strings of pearls, got me me all Audrey Hepburn like (she’s Belgian origin too..) 😉 In a nutshell, the combination of lifestyle and wrong skincare had a negative effect on my skin, becoming especially impaired, sensitive and sore. A classic mistake.
WHAT CHANGED…. I met my now-husband in Belgium, moved to New Zealand ✈️ had a few long pauses + (before moving) picking up some culture in Japan 🗻 & Hawaii 🧘♀️ -
But still having skin problems, I needed to fix my skin. The climate in New Zealand is not doing your skin any favours … What better than immerse myself in the beauty and skin care industry? Right?
It’s a rapid changing industry and so with my inquisitive nature I retrained, studied and researched. [would you like to know more about more professional journey - link available here] At some point I had my AHA-moment where science and ideas fell into place. Solving the mystery of what's hiding beneath the skin. A principle, a method, but one that works and is sustainable.
There’s NO judging when you talk skin-habits working with me 👌
The starting point - Consultation. You can’t do everything alone and being a skin-enthusiast, you need someone in your corner. I take care of your outside to give you confidence inside.
Time to get to the ‘nitty-gritty’ Advanced Skin Analysis. How do you get to analyze my skin with an extensive consultation, You say…? NO guessing game this is ↓ Clear-cut Q&A about lifestyle, dietary habits, skincare habits, medical and cosmetic history I can ‘paint a picture’ of your skin journey … the why it became to ‘behave’ this way + I give YOU the tools on HOW to take further care of your skin - living your best version
