Hello everybody! So for those who do not know me, I would like to introduce myself, my name is Beth and I am the owner and creator of BAO Skincare. People are my true passion in life. I love people. I love talking to people, I love making people feel good about themselves, I love inspiring people, motivating people and above all I love that my skincare products can uplift my customers energy and make them feel wonderful too!
As you may have read on my website I have had over 10 years in the beauty industry and have been in love with natural skin care for even longer, so you can imagine my delight when I finally completed my dream of launching my own all natural organic skincare brand. I chose the name BAO because I wanted my products to reflect me and how my products make me feel. BAO stands for BETH’S AROMATHERAPY ORGANIC skincare. When I studied a diploma in natural beauty therapy and nutrition in Australia in the Year 2006 natural skincare was still a fairly new industry. Natural skincare products were something you would only see at markets and whole food health stores.
However, living in Australia I was exposed to such an incredible holistic way of life, they were definitely ahead of England. I was lucky enough to spend my weekends visiting gorgeous hippy markets and music festivals where I got to sample lots of natural skincare products, from body creams to face oils, face masks and soaps. It was Australia where I really fell in love with this relaxing holistic way of living. I completed my diploma and naturally started my journey into the beauty industry. So fast forward over 10 years and after returning back to my home in Poole, Dorset I opened my own beauty business which I started from the ground up with only three customers. I worked from home for 4 years full-time as a beauty therapist performing waxing, facials and massages.
Then in 2012 I travelled up to London to study, completing courses in making natural skincare products. Then I expanded my business to opening a high street beauty salon in 2014, it was a massive success but came to an end in early 2018 due to my health issues. I have had Crohn’s disease for many many years and decided to step back to work from home and put 100% of my energy into launching a fabulous skincare brand people would be obsessed with! So here we are, I am finally launching my blog after all these years! With meeting so many different people and working in many different industries I have found my true calling! So I would now love to share all my secret tips and advice with you all. It will contain everything from skincare, fake tans, beauty products, food, lifestyle and wellbeing.
Please enjoy reading. Lots of Love Beth xxx
