SkinGenius Clarifying Lotion has been developed by beautician Julia Vearncombe and homeopath Hilery Dorrian.
Julia Vearncombe has been working in beauty for over for 30 years and is trained in beauty therapy, reflexology and aromatherapy massage. Whilst running her own beauty business, Julia became aware that many of her clients were increasingly concerned about chemicals in skincare products. They also wanted advice on what products their children should be using to help with spots and acne, especially as many of the products on the market contained harsh chemicals. After some initial research, Julia realised that there was a need for an affordable, natural product specifically aimed at those with problem skin – such as acne, stress spots and hormonal skin.
Julia teamed up with homeopath Hilery Dorrian who had previously developed and launched the Barefoot Botanicals natural skin care range in 1997. Hilery has 25 years of experience as a homeopath, Chinese herbalist and acupuncturist. She started her career as an acupuncturist, qualifying from Leamington Spa in 1981. She went on to study at the London College of Homoeopathy graduating in 1988. Homoeopathy quickly became her passion and she continued her studies in India. Hilery is a regular lecturer for many homoeopathic colleges in the UK and abroad and is frequently asked to speak at various events on homeopathy and Chinese medicine. Hilery currently runs a busy practice in Lingfield, Surrey where she sees upwards of 50 patients a week.
