Beaubronz has been a huge hit on the celebrity scene, including the likes of Lady Gaga! How did Beauskin and Beaubronz come about, and what is the secret behind it being so incredibly successful?
My success has come from doing what I love and always giving 100% to every client. I even have a 24 hour emergency call out service. I treat every client with TLC and bespoke their treatment plan for them exclusively. BeauBronz was created for my desire to warn people about the dangers of sunbeds and introduce paraben free, organic, vegan products. Back in 1999 no one know the dangers or understood about nasty chemicals in products. Thankfully they do now. BeauSkin was born from my passion for skin science. I love that I can actually turn back the clock and restore the skins natural barrier function, thus creating healthy radiant skin. My aim is that skincare should be our make-up, and the products we use come from knowledge not marketing.
Having been an educator and brand owner in the beauty industry for 15 years, what are your top beauty tips that you have learnt along the way?
The most single important things is to wear a physical (mineral) SPF every day. UV damage is the major enemy of our skin and we need to protect it. 78% of damage is caused by incidental daily exposure. Whatever the weather! Pollution is the 2nd enemy of our skin and causes oxidative damage. Use a VItC serum- daily this is an antioxidant that gives you the first line of defence. Then your sunscreen gives you the 2nd line of defence. Always fake tan your skin, never ever bake it!
What tips could you give our London Living readers who are wanting to look after their skin more, but don’t know where to start?
The best place to start looking after your skin is with a good cosmeceutical brand, typically cosmetic creams sit on the surface of the skin, to get real skin science based results we need to add ingredients in to the deeper layers and feed our skin with nourishing ingredients that repair and restore.
I am in desperate need of a facial and a tan! Where are your treatments located in London? And how do I go about booking a treatment in?
BeauBronz will always be my first beauty baby and continues to grow with great tan technicians running the helm. Rachel, my head London tan artist looks after many celebrities such as actors from Vikings and covers SW London – offering www.beaubronz.co.uk mobile services. She specialises in a 4 step contour tan and also a clear tan – (yes a clear tan) which is poplar due to zero transfer on sheets and no smell. Rachel can be booked on 07872 945044 (starting at £75).

I work with many top celebrities from clinics across London. Up to date with all the latest legislation and treatments also fully insured we assure you of a warm welcome with friendly assistance, advice and treatments designed to leave your skin glowing and beautiful.
I have read that you specialise in premature aging skincare. Can you step us through the treatments and results you offer?
Restoring healthy skin is the key objective of all BeauSkin treatments. We take a holistic approach and combine different therapies including using the latest technology devices from PureSkin that contain Radio Frequency, LED lights, Soft laser and vacuum suction for lymphatic drainage. These are proven to repair damaged skin. All the treatments are designed to avoid causing trauma and have little if any downtime. Clients can immediately return to work and don’t look red.
The vast majority of clients are concerned with addressing enlarged pores and thinning skin around the eyes. They require treatments that will boost firming collagen and elastin on both the face, neck and chest.
Our approach involves carrying out a full assessment and seven-point skin analysis to help determine the depth of damage and the number of treatments that are needed.
Typically, clients will start with a CosMedix advanced peel which helps to brighten the skin and soften lines around the eye area. To see a significant improvement, a series of four personalised treatments are carried out every two to four weeks. Throughout the series, the strength of treatment will increase. This is how results are achieved in a short time frame.
Also, everyone can benefit from making improvements to their daily skincare routine. The first step is to include active ingredients that communicate on a cellular level and retrain how the skin behaves. We believe in using a simple routine, that clients don’t find over complicated and can be done while on the go!
Finally, what are your favourite places for chill out and down time in London?
London has so many great and interesting walks, I get inspired by walking along the river and seeing so many great businesses, sights and people. Recently I did the Putney to Southbank embankment walk and then took a river boat to Greenwich to chill out in the great markets and sample the delicious street food!
London is the best city in the world and always has something exciting to see, taste or do.
