Dallas, Texas Has Passed!

Thank you Dallas! This event has passed.

September 24—26, 2022

It all starts with understanding the skin

Skin analysis is the foundation for everything you do. Having the power to read the skin and identify each and every area of concern is how you get a reputation for being able to transform your clients’ skin from their first appointment with you. When you can recognize their skin type and the sub-conditions that influence the skin – like dullness, hyperpigmentation or the many different types of acne – you can change their skin forever.

Here’s why it’s so important to understand the skin:

Allow you to achieve fast results

Give you a deeper understanding of internal inflammation and gut health

Have the knowledge to be creative with whichever products you choose

Build a strong relationship with your clients

Know the specific products to recommend for homecare use

Have the confidence to be seen as a true skin expert!

When you understand the skin, you can do so much more for your clients

Do you know how to identify the different skin types and the many sub-conditions that affect the skin? Once you understand how to read the skin and pinpoint areas of concern, you’ll have the confidence to design a customized treatment plan for each and every one of your clients.

Learn directly from Nerida as she teaches you the fundamentals of skin analysis and face-mapping, and shows you how to treat common sub-conditions such as surface dryness, melasma, dull and blotchy skin and all the different types of acne. You’ll watch LIVE demonstrations of skin analysis and full treatment facials, and get the chance to have Nerida work on your own skin. And for the first time ever, you can join her exclusive new mentoring program to work hands-on alongside her and benefit from her 44 years’ experience of working on the skin. The conference will close with a panel of celebrity beauty industry experts, who will share valuable advice on how you can elevate yourself as a professional.

This inspirational event will give you all the skills you need to excel in your business so you can focus on what success looks like to you.
