Skylar Arriola Designation: Licensed Estheticians - FB9783533 Skincare turned into a big passion of mine when I was dealing with adult acne. I was interested in researching ingredients and forming my own philosophy on skincare. At my first job in a spa I learned what an Esthetician was, however, after working at the front desk at Amy’s, speaking with the providers, and learning about Eminence Organic Skincare, I really saw myself becoming an Esthetician. I later attended Cortiva Institute and really fell in love with performing facials and helping clients see results within their treatments and home care. Now, as an Esthetician at Amy’s I strive to create a relaxing and educational experience for my clients to make them feel at home in their skin and inspire them to fall in love with skincare as well.
