What led me to start Bestow?
As a young, newly qualified beauty therapist, I found I just couldn’t get the results when my clients came to me for help with their skin problems. When I met my mentor, Janice Smith, I realised that I was missing an important part of the puzzle, the internals. Once I introduced this aspect to my work, I started getting amazing results with my client’s skin’s. The next hurdle was ensuring that I had a reliable supply of good quality supplements for my clients. Not only was supply erratic but the quality would vary hugely. So, out of frustration, I decided to source my own supply. I was lucky enough to find a great company in the South Island of New Zealand. We combined our ‘super powers’; by then I knew what the skin needed and they knew how to consistently supply a quality product. We just clicked and have been working together ever since. By the time I had sourced a good supply, there were other beauty therapists who had also been trained in this way of working with the skin and they wanted the product too. I instantly had a brand even though it wasn’t something I had planned on!
