Who we are

Our Philosophy

Clear, healthy skin reflects internal health and wellness…

Offering integrative care means looking at each client holistically, delivering long-term skin health, age management and general wellness results.

What you put on your skin effects long-term skin health…

We promote daily skin care that is simple, natural and chemical-free whenever possible and always apply pure minerals to protect, correct and hydrate the skin.

Protect your skin from overexposure to the sun…

Understanding how effective and safe your sun protection products are is key. We promote “pure” sun block with antioxidants for optimal protection and the highest safety ratings.

Treat your body well and your skin will benefit…

You can maintain clear, healthy, hydrated skin by reducing your intake of refined sugars and alcohol, knowing and avoiding your food sensitivities, drinking plenty of pure water, detoxifying seasonally with full-body cleansing and enjoying an active, balanced lifestyle.

Treatment options with education and integrity…

It is our job to be sure our clients & patients thoroughly understand their options, we are always available via email at info@clearskinvictoria.com for further information on a product or a treatment, after we have met in your complimentary consultation.
