Meet Tina Richards, one of Britain's leading skin care and anti-ageing experts.
Tina has over 20 years experience in the beauty industry. She trained as a facialist at Champneys and went on to qualify in many holistic therapies including aromatherapy, reflexology and beauty therapy.
Tina also studied for 5 years at Guy's Kings and St Thomas' Medical School in London. Although she enjoyed the medical course immensely she was torn between her long passion for health and beauty and medicine.
Finally she decided not to pursue a career as a GP but to combine her knowledge of medical science with 15 years experience in the beauty industry; and to specialise in anti-ageing. So Tina re-directed to graduate from medical school with an intercalated medical BSc (Hons) degree in Nutrition.
Tina Richards' exclusive clientele has ranged from A-List Hollywood actors, including Jamie Lee Curtis, to professionals in the medical world as well as her local clients. She is respected for appointing equal value to all her clients. Richards once declined a request from Julia Roberts' "people", which would have meant cancelling a day's appointments with her local clientele at very little notice.
Tina's career is now focused on advising on natural ('no needles') anti-ageing strategies that work, which is her area of expertise. She is semi-retired from beauty therapy (never say never!) and takes a very proactive, hands-on role in her company. She continuously searches for the best products and treatments that are scientifically proven to maximise skin health and offer the best solutions to combat the signs of ageing. She conducts Workshops on skin, health, anti-ageing nutrition as well as giving one-to-one personal advice on skin maintenance programmes.
Tina is regularly featured in the UK press, on television and radio; she was a featured skin care expert on the The Truth About Beauty with Martine McCutcheon, has given guest interviews on BBC radio and regularly appears on QVC. Recently, Tina has acted as Beauty Ambassador for Dove Pro Age - providing generic skin health advice.
Tua Viso, the world's first handheld non-surgical facelift device, is highly recommended and promoted by Tina in the UK, Ireland and Spain. Richard's truthful approach is customer-focused rather than product-focused, enabling individuals to find their own most effective solutions to improving and maintaining their skin health. Tina's wish is that making these changes to their skin care regimes will make a long-lasting difference to the way her customers feel about themselves and empower them with confidence about their appearance.
Tina Richards loves interacting with her customers and encouraging them to feel assured about the way they look. She feels genuinely rewarded by helping people and seeing the beneficial results of her work. Her sociable style and down-to-earth, fact-driven advice is a truly refreshing approach to skin care and has won her many fans from around the globe.
Credentials: Pre-clinical medicine, Nutrition BSc (Hons), CIBTAC, CIDESCO, ITEC.
