Hello and welcome to Skin by Tamsyn.
I’m an Internationally licensed Esthetician with over 16 years of experience in the ever-evolving skincare industry.
My skincare story started as a teenager growing up in Cape Town, South Africa. From age 12 to 22 I struggled with severely painful cystic acne. It destroyed my confidence, affecting every aspect of my life... Unfortunately, it took years of enduring various painful treatments, a plethora of homecare products, and two rounds of Roaccutane before my skin started to improve.
However, it was those extremely tough years that prompted me to educate myself to successfully help, guide, and support others going through a similar experience. Having been completely obsessed with my skin, acne treatments, and of course, all the skincare products I could get my hands on - I enrolled in the Isa Carstens Academy of Health & Skincare, based in Stellenbosch, South Africa. It was here that I obtained my Advanced Diploma in Health & Skincare, as well as my internationally recognized CIDESCO qualification.
After completing my studies, I was fortunate enough to work in various 5-star spas, on a cruise ship, and ultimately in a Skin & Laser clinic. It was here that I realized my true calling and spent 5 years growing an extensive client base. My career highlight was having the opportunity to work alongside an incredible Dermatologist, where I gained advanced experience in Chemical peels, IPL, micro-needling, and personalized skincare consultations.
I'm now living in Burlington, Canada, and offer complimentary virtual skincare consultations. My goal is to educate, guide, and support my clients through a personalized home care routine and science-backed skincare. My approach to skincare is extremely personal and I pride myself in providing a genuine, professional, and ethical service to each and every client. We ALL deserve to be happy in our skin…
So, if you haven't already booked your skin care consultation with me, do it now. I look forward to meeting you and chatting about your current skincare concerns and personalizing a homecare routine to help reach your goals.
