Mandy has been a beauty therapist for 33 years qualifying in 1982 from Great Yarmouth College. She began working for Steiner and Pampers in Norwich before joining the cruise ships, working in the spa for 3 years. Mandy worked in Bermuda for 7 years as a therapist before coming back to Norfolk where she set up her own successful salon in Hethersett for 14 years. During that time she completed her degree in teaching and combined working in the industry with teaching part time at Great Yarmouth College for 6 years.
A wealth of experience in Beauty Therapy
Mandy has a wealth of experience in all aspects of beauty therapy, and still offers most beauty treatments but over the last ten years has specialised in Environ® skin treatments and products and optimising skin health. Environ® was developed by prominent South African plastic surgeon Dr Des Fernandes. He was a pioneer in introducing vitamin A into skin care formulations because it offered benefits to sun damaged skin; Dr Des was one of the first to use vitamin A to ensure genuine visible effect on the quality of the skin.
Environ® is under the umbrella of IIAA (International Institute of Anti-Ageing) and alongside Advanced Nutritional Supplements (which promote healthy skin from feeding within) and Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics (to protect and aid healthy skin on top) Environ® products fortify the skin topically to provide a holistic approach to radiant and healthy skin.
Mandy is passionate about Environ® and the benefits it can provide and works closely with Environ® skin advisors to offer her clients a targeted and personalised skin care regime. She holds regular skin analysis events where powerful Visia imaging technology captures information and assesses common problem areas. Treatment is then targeted towards specific goals, whether it is pigmentation concerns, sun damage, blemishes, capillary damage, wrinkles, scars, imperfections or congested pores.
Skin Care Specialist
Mandy’s mission as a salon skin care specialist is to, (along with the IIAA) deliver scientific skincare for all skin types and all ages using cutting edge technology and research based treatment to achieve incredible results. She will work with you to identify your goals and offer solutions to those niggling problems using salon based treatments as well as dietary and lifestyle advice to give a clearer, more radiant, even toned, smoother and less lined skin.
‘Our skin is the largest organ of the body and like all our other organs it needs to be looked after from the inside and protected from the outside. Good skincare is not just about looking good it is about looking after this vital organ. The skin is susceptible to both acute and chronic inflammation, infections and of course damage caused by the sun. I am passionate about Environ® and its benefits, due to its extensive research and scientific backing to promote healthy skin, particularly in the incidence of sun related skin disorders as this becomes a growing worldwide problem and believe me, it is never too late to start.’
