MEET JANINE TAIT
Despite using all the tools of modern skincare at my disposal I found that too often, I just could not get the results for my clients that I hoped for. The beauty industry in the 1990’s was all about machines, needling, extreme peels and invasive quick fixes. Skin nutrition didn’t even get a look-in.
Skin disorders became the elephant in the room that I didn’t want to mention to my clients, because I wasn’t confident that I could really make a difference. My frustration sent me on a quest for answers, which led me to the woman who would become my mentor, Janice Sarre-Smith, the founder of Janesce Skincare.
A highly trained herbalist, Janice was decades ahead of her time in the way she treated skin holistically and showed me the importance of working from within through skin nutrition. She took a three dimensional approach to skincare, recognising that diet, environment, and mental and emotional wellbeing were essential elements to consider alongside topical skincare and treatments. We now call this philosophy the ‘Slow Beauty’ way.
As I began working from within with my clients, it completely transformed both their skin and my career. I became a confident skincare therapist and began to get amazing results with the skin conditions I used to be afraid of treating.
I become so fascinated with the power of using nutrition to treat skin that I went on to study nutritional medicine. My specialty is dermo-nutrition, which is the study of how nutrition specifically impact on skin. I am now privileged to pass on my knowledge to skincare therapists all over New Zealand and Australia through Bestow University.
I was aware of the key nutrients the skin needed to thrive and equally aware that our modern diet was inadequate to supply these. My clients were inspired by the idea of nourishing their skin from within, but I realised I needed to create a range of skin-specific super foods that made it easy and practical for them to do so.
Bestow Beauty Oil and Bestow Beauty Powder were the first two products I developed. These products nourish your skin from within by providing essential skin-specific nutrients on a cellular level. I call them the ‘Twin Skin Essentials’ because the way they feed the skin is absolutely foundational to skin health.
These dermo-nutrition boosters are designed to complement topical skincare and to naturally support a clear, glowing complexion. They are foundational to healthy skin for every woman whether you are dealing with acne, ageing or anything in between.
Like all wellness journeys, learning to live the Bestow way requires patience and dedication in the beginning, but it is truly a beautiful and rewarding way to live.
