“What is your skin trying to tell you? Often the skin is a metaphor for what is happening on the inside and a way for your body to remind yourself on how to take care. Self care and skincare begin underneath. When our skin is healthy it is reflection of the internal state of our bodies."
WHY DID YOU START?
I saw an untapped market in the beauty/skincare industry in regards to women of color, and founded Vanessa Marc Spa to fill this void. I also wanted to use my growing platform to amplify the voices of women of color in the industry, and to become the woman I wish I could have had to look up to when I was younger.
I believe that I saw my business grow exponentially after being featured by Vogue, both in their magazine and on social media, and later by Business Insider. Then I was able to book treatments for A-list celebrities for the MET Gala in 2019, which led to retaining many high profile clientele.
