My passion for the beauty industry began at a very early age. Intrigued by the glamorous adverts in Vogue magazine I landed myself a job in a beauty salon aged 16 as their Saturday girl. I quickly progressed from scrubbing the shower and cleaning product shelves to enrolling in a full-time course straight from School.
Brushing the initial despair aside, I was inspired by my own personal journey with acne both as a teenager and a young adult. As a result, I was always keenly interested in ingredient technology and felt that a more innovative approach was needed for successfully nurturing skin back to health.
So, after a decade of research I developed my signature 3D approach to skin health, incorporating a scientific, nutritional and holistic philosophy designed to nurture my skin back to health. This innovative approach was so successful on my own skin that it seemed a natural progression to set up my own skin health business, so I founded Louise Thomas Skin Therapy in my home City of Norwich, going from house to house as a mobile skin therapist until the Skin Lounge was born some 15 years ago!
I have driven myself to have a varied career from beauty therapist, to skin health expert, vocational college lecturer, international skin care brand business development manager and trainer, entrepreneur, brand ambassador and now skin care formulator and podcast host!
