Olivia Taylor

"My passion for the industry began at Isa Carsten’s Academy in South Africa where I studied for 3 years where I mainly focussed on clinical skin and spa management. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to have gained amazing opportunities to work in places like South Africa, America, and now the wonderful UK. I’ve developed my career in all aspects of the industry from beauty therapy to aesthetics to spa/boutique management and recruitment, and looking forward to continuing my career with my passion – training!"

What inspires you to train?
"Ever since I was a therapist, I used to recommend and encourage my clients to use supplements in conjunction with the products for optimal results and finish off with a mineral foundation post skin treatment. Coming to the iiaa, that fundamental basic principle I used to stand by is what the company is all about and I whole heartedly believe in this philosophy as the results speak for themselves. Having the opportunity to empower others with knowledge of the wonderful brands and the results they achieve in an honour and I believe that in the industry, adequate training is what paves the way for success in our salons, spas and clinics and I’m so excited to be a part of this."

What is your desert island product?
"Definitely Advanced Nutrition Programme's Skin Vitality 1 – I really enjoy this broad spectrum supplement that helps maintain my overall health, skin and nails. I can’t do without it!

Also Environ's Vita-Antioxidant Hydrating Oil Capsules are a little luxury for my skin but I love the amazing antioxidant properties it has and the hydrating and softening effects it provides. Lastly, the amazing jane iredale peaches and cream bronzer giving me soft summery glow – it goes everywhere with me now!"
