Carlsbad Patch chats with Skin Authority CEO Celeste Hilling about her Carlsbad-based company that keeps both men and women from all over the world ordering more and more, year after year.
Carlsbad Patch: When did you start Skin Authority and why?
We founded Skin Authority in 2002. I wanted to take a modern approach to skin care products which would give consumers immediate results in simple routines that fit today’s active lifestyles and at price points which were accessible. Most importantly, we wanted to design the products and support in a way that we could help people become more skin healthy while also making them more cosmetically beautiful.
Carlsbad Patch: Why did you choose Carlsbad to be your headquarters?
Originally, we selected Carlsbad as we liked both the physical environment: the open space and modern business facilities as well as the “small business-friendly" community environment. It is in close proximity to L. A. as well as airports which is key for a global beauty business like skin care!
Carlsbad Patch: What makes your products different?
First and foremost, the products produce visible results from the first use. While we are naturally effective (without parabens, dyes or added fragrance), you don’t sacrifice performance. We are also a modern skin care line in that the multipurpose design of our products allows anyone to accomplish the results in a way that fits today’s busy lifestyle. You can get the result of 6 steps in just three each morning or night. Most importantly, you can reach out to a certified skin care coach for free guidance via phone, facebook, email, etc. Skin Authority delivers what it promises which builds a great emotional bond with our customers.
Carlsbad Patch: Which 3 products could you not live without?
Resurfacing Accelerator is a magic bullet for a glowing, smooth texture, Wrinkle Reversing Serum because our unique growth factor technology is really our first preventative line of defense, and Age Defying Moisturizer is a full spectrum sunscreen and anti aging moisturizer in one so I can hydrate and practice safe sun each day
Carlsbad Patch: What is the best way for people to book treatment appointments in Carlsbad?
Anyone can reach out to us for a free advice or a free consultation at 1-866-325-SKIN, option 4.
Carlsbad Patch: What do you think is the secret to good skin?
It is the accumulation of what you do daily that insures amazing skin versus a single treatment or product. Just like any form of self improvement, eating healthy, exercise and a DAILY routine of facial resurfacing, nourishing and protecting will yield sustainable beauty inside and out.
Carlsbad Patch: Anything else you want Patch readers to know?
Having a daily routine of quality Skin Authority skin care products combined with free professional guidance costs no more than the average American spends daily on coffee or beverage purchases. Don’t shy away from making the investment in yourself to be healthy and feel good about your image.
