Hi, I'm Nerida Joy!
My mission is to educate and elevate my industry
“Skincare is my passion, educating and elevating my industry is my goal”
Renowned esthetician Nerida Joy has performed more than 100,000 facials in her over 45-year international career and is known for the way she transforms her clients’ skin by pinpointing specific concerns and designing custom treatment plans to deliver fast results.
She has been named one of the top facialists in the country by SELF magazine and was the only esthetician – along with 49 dermatologists – to be listed as a Skin Expert by ELLE. Nerida has been featured in over 80 prestigious beauty publications worldwide and serves on the Brain Trust for NEWBEAUTY magazine.
Born in Australia, Nerida knew at an early age that she wanted to devote her life to understanding and caring for the skin. Her education in skincare began in 1978. She has expanded her knowledge through certification in nutrition, Reiki, kinesiology, iridology, Australian bush essences, color therapy and therapeutic massage.
Over the past 30 years she has built a loyal following of celebrity clients at her boutique skincare clinic in Los Angeles, California. She is also sought after as a consultant by luxury hotels, who rely on her expertise to transform their spas into a true five-star experience, and by skincare lines for advice on developing new products.
The videos on her popular YouTube channel are taught in beauty schools across the world, and she offers regular skincare advice and inspiration on Instagram, Facebook and Clubhouse. She is the creator of the FIVESTAR Method, a step-by-step online course designed for the international esthetician community. Above all, she is passionate about elevating her fellow estheticians by teaching a deep and detailed understanding of the skin.
