Elaine Sterling, is an internationally trained, certified, licensed Beauty Therapist and Educator.
Originally from South Africa she holds both the prestigious CIDESCO (Switzerland) Diplomat and ITEC(London) certifications. A licensed Esthetician and Licensed Esthetician Instructor, Elaine has a passion for skin health and while speaking and writing about the "Theater of the spa experience" she is passionate about the power of the well trained spa professional and how their healing touch can affect peoples lives.
Elaine’s professional positions have included Director of Education of a large skincare school in Atlanta and Esthetic and Training Director at Spa Sydell, a highly successful and innovative Day Spa group also based in Atlanta.
In my vast experience as an Esthetician and Educator I have seen first hand my client's frustration with their skin issues. My belief is that Men and Women should look and feel beautiful at any age. After years of research and testing on what I like to call the "living laboratory” (students, clients, patients), I have worked to improve the aesthetic world by developing products, tools and education programs focusing on the art and science of beauty enhancement.
I love the skin and work every moment of the day to find solutions to problematic skin conditions. I am relentless in the pursuit of more beautiful skin. This is my mission, my passion and my vision. Knowledge, science and art is in everything I do ... from education to product development.
The connection of skin to health and wellbeing is paramount to me and is reflected and energized in all my professional endeavors from writing to keynote speaking and spa business coaching.
While speaking, presenting, writing and training on the subject of "The Theater of the Spa Experience", I am motivated and encouraged when I see evidence of the positive affects on and changes brought to people’s lives. The power of a professionally-trained Spa touch is invaluable in the stress-filled world we live in. My desire for the health and beauty enhancement concept to be promoted at every available opportunity drives me forward in pursuit of excellence in my field of expertise.

Working in the Spa World
In my experience dealing with clients, patients and frustrated skincare product consumers I have found that feeding the skin vital antioxidants and anti-inflammatory type botanicals will help the skin to repair itself. I do not believe you have to traumatize the skin to see results. While using the progressive rather than aggressive attitude we can take the skin to a new level. Bring about change to problematic skin conditions through daily care. Results without trauma to the skin. "First Do No Harm" Is my mantra.
I bring you a skincare line that works ... you will love it ... this is my gift to you!
