ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Hi, I'm June, the founder of June First Skincare!  I wanted to tell you a little bit about why I do what I do, and how it's changed my life.

 

I first got into skincare as a teenager who suffered from extremely sensitive skin.  I would spend whatever money I earned at my part-time job on skincare products, running experiments on myself to see what worked and what didn't.  I didn't know what I was doing, but I made improvements, and the boost of self-confidence they gave me laid the groundwork for what would come later.

Advised by friends to "go into finance because that's where the money is", I attended Queens College, Queens and majored in Accounting.  I got a job as an accountant, and for several years huddled myself in a cubicle, stressed and eating bad food, doing a job I didnt love.  One day I took a look in the mirror, figuratively and literally, and decided this wasnt what I wanted to do with my life.  I loved skincare!  And I hadnt quite been paying attention to my own.

I quit my job, and used my savings to attend Christine Valmy school for Esthetics.  I went to school learning skincare by day, and by night I read every dermatology book I could find, devouring as much information about skin as I could.  I graduated top of my class, and got a job at the famous Christine Chin Spa, esthetician to the stars!

While training under Christine Chin (the Extraction Queen), I had the opportunity to work with and meet several celebrity figures, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Padma Lakshmi and Queen Rania of Jordan. 

 

From there, I took my new mastery of facial extractions and went to Glow Bar, where I would get the opportunity to hone my skills on hundreds of clients of all ethnicities!  Not one to sit idle, I soon enrolled in a course to learn how to perform high-end facial and buccal massages from a renowned international instructor.

 

I keep up to date on the latest science of skincare, and other areas of interest for me are the intersection of diet, mental well-being and meditation on health and skin.  I also enjoy playing with my kitten Ranger!

 

I've been preparing for this opportunity to help you improve your skin, and I hope you give me that chance :)

 

Best,

June
