It is our pleasure to introduce July’s ‘Clinic of the Month’ Jacinta Curnow Skin, located in Singleton, Western Australia.
Tell us about your Jacinta Curnow Skin, what sets you apart from other clinics?
Jacinta Curnow Skin is a home-based skin haven that focuses on the correction and restoration of the skin’s barrier while sending you off into a deep state of relaxation to rest the mind, body and soul. My after-hours clients know that they are welcome to come into the clinic in their pyjamas, have the best facial of their lives, enjoy a warm herbal tea in the lounge and then slide straight into bed once they are home! As a busy working mum, I know it can be a struggle to find time for yourself and so if I can help someone switch off for an hour and send them home feeling amazing, I’ve done my job! Extra points for snoring!
What inspired you to create a solo business?
Looking back, I have always been inspired to work for myself. I started my mobile business while completing my Beauty Therapy Diploma at college, where I would offer the treatments I was qualified for after completing each unit. When I landed my first job as a Skin Therapist at a 5-star Spa in West Perth, I began to build my client base. Within this job, I was responsible for delivering VIP-level service, which is now something my clients enjoy at Jacinta Curnow Skin. At the same time, I continued running my mobile business. I would often travel from Joondalup to Mandurah after work, delivering services such as relaxing massages, hosting lash lift parties, and makeup artistry.
Once our home was built, we had 2 beautiful rooms to use for my skin studio I happily hung up my mobile service and settled in to studio luxury.
What do you consider your own top 3 pillars of success to be when it comes to business?
- Client Experience
My clients admire my passion for skin education and with this, I am able to pass on my knowledge and educate my clients during their appointments. I always have a new skin course booked in! My education and relaxing modalities come hand in hand. I offer my clients a magical experience they didn’t think they needed.
Tell us your top 3 Dermaviduals products that you love most for yourself and your clients.
Ohhhh hard one! I absolutely adore the Cleansing Milk with DMS! The Kiwi Seed Nanoparticles serum has saved a lot of my eczema client’s skin. The Bespoke Serum is most popular now as it helps simplify my client’s home routine.
Are there any must-haves that you love to start your day with before work?
Car karaoke with my kids on the way to school drop off and my smashed avocado. I’ve been learning more about gut health and so I try to have a good breakfast. I have also cut out coffee and haven’t had one since Christmas!
In what ways do you like to “unwind” and get out of work mode?
I think a lot of home-based salons and sole traders can relate, but I struggle to switch off! I am always replying to messages, putting products out for pick-ups or folding towels. But definitely, a big hug from my kids and partner tends to ground me and forces me to put the phone down and be present in that moment.
