As you will know if you have been following me recently I have embarked on a skin journey with MOOD. When I tell people about a brand or company I like to first let you get to know the amazing, talented, strong woman behind the brand. And that is why I want you to meet Bridget. She is one incredibly talented, intelligent boss babe and even more impressive she has done it all at such a young age. She lives and breathes her philosophy and I can’t wait for you to get to know her!
Firstly tell us a little about yourself.
Well my name is Bridget and I am the founder and owner of Mood Skin Clinic. I started Mood 2 years ago with a dream and a passion to help with skin conditions, skin health, education and most importantly to rebuild confidence. It broke my heart to see the insecurities that we get from having sad skin so I am on a mission to rebuild that confidence back and to get skin “healthy” and “glowing”
Are you a tea or coffee person?
Ooohhhhhhh!!!!! I enjoy both…. But I would have to say I love my coffee.
How do you start your day?
Haha with coffee!!! I like to get into the clinic super early grab a coffee turn up the music to get us energised and pumped for the day ahead.
How did you find yourself in the beauty industry?
If I’m completely honest the idea of going to university terrified me. I’d always struggled with my skin as kid and teenager and for some reason one day I ended up googling “Beauty Therapy” and the next thing I knew I was enrolled with no idea really what it was about. I had a lot of people tell me I should be going to uni and that beauty was a “drop-out” thing to do but I guess I knew in my gutt it was for me. I have a really amazing family that encouraged me to do it and since then I found my love for skin therapy. I truly couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I absolutely love this industry.
How do you find balance when owning your own business?
Ah good question! This is something I am still trying to figure out… so I will keep you posted on that one
What is one skin mistake you see most clients making?
I could name a few but one of the biggest is not realising that skin starts from within. Internal support is vital to really addressing conditions and concerns and changing how skin functions.
At Mood we work with so many conditions from cystic acne, congestion, breakouts, rosacea, and eczema, maintaining general skin health and brides for example, and the reason we get such great results is because we are working with all aspects of the skin.
We work on the structure and function opposed to just what we see on the surface. Otherwise you just have a band aid effect and although you might feel better for while it usually comes back with full force. We look at EFA’s and gut health, water intake, hormones, stress to name a few and in conjunction with treatments and at home prescriptives we start changing skin and lives. A lot of it is getting more education out there.
What advice would you give to someone wanting to start their skincare treatment journey but they don’t know where to start?
Do your research and find a skin clinic and therapist that you connect with and trust. You want to work with someone who is open and honest about what can be achieved. It’s a really personal journey to go though, not easy at times and also it’s not an overnight thing so you want to know you have a great support system. Don’t be scared to ask questions if you’re unsure.
What Skin treatment or product you couldn’t live without?
There are so many!! First off I can’t live without my EFA supplements, they are my #1 and I love love love love skin needling so at the moment I also can’t live without my home roller and B3 serum those are the 3 must haves in my bathroom at the moment. Spf is a biggy too… My routine like everyone changes depending on my skin and what I’m working on at the time.
Your next holiday is?
Wellllllllllllllll funny you should ask……….I’ve actually just been invited to a wedding in Thailand next year so that’s my next one booked.
What do you love most about Mood?
I love that we really do change lives everyday by changing skin. Rebuilding confidence to those who have been so unhappy with their skins for so long. All the amazing skin stories we get to hear empower us to keep going and when you see the spark and glow come back and it’s the best feeling in the world. We get to work with the most amazing clients and to be with them on their journey toachieve their skin goals is so awesome!!
