Tricia Utley is a licensed esthetician who is passionate health and wellness due to experiencing her own sensitive skin conditions over the years. In her late 20’s she developed a severe case of adult acne in addition to weight gain. She had been already struggling with fatigue and dry skin her symptoms progressively were getting worse, but she finally found a Dr. that diagnosed her with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis at the age of 30. Tricia has a love for learning and researching and voraciously studied all that she could about autoimmunity and began her healing journey. Through holistic and functional medical practices, she was able to clear her skin and reduce her symptoms and is on the way to being healed completely.
Tricia is a certified holistic skincare specialist with 18 years in the beauty industry with experience in the treatment room and as an educator. She has come to discover that what is manifesting on your skin is a sign for what is going on inside your body, and in your mind and spirit. Whether that be food sensitivities, chronic stress, fear and anxiety or environmental toxicities. (or maybe all of the above!)
She believes that your skin knows what to do if you give it the nutrition and environment it needs to thrive. Clients seek her help because they have struggled with adult acne, red irritated skin, dark spots and lines and sagging skin as well as skin conditions caused by illness and autoimmune conditions. They lead super busy lives and have tried almost everything. They are frustrated with breakouts and spots and want results. She has helped many women with the transformation to healthy, vibrant and glowing skin. She is currently studying women’s hormone health because she has witnessed countless women struggle with their skin only to feel hopeless because they are told that their issues are hormonal and that the will just have to “deal with it”. Tricia is passionate about teaching women about how their bodies work and how to live in harmony with their cycles. She also believes in teaching women that taking care of themselves (sometimes before others). It isn’t just about skincare and beauty, but about living a healthy life. Practicing self-care with intent, compassion, gratitude and self-love is essential so that they can provide amazing support to their loved ones and the community.
When she isn’t in the treatment room or researching ingredients and skincare, she enjoys Kundalini Yoga and meditation, reading, art and watching movies.
