Rachael Pontillo, President
Rachael Pontillo is the bestselling author of the book Love Your Skin, Love Yourself, and is co-author of The Sauce Code. She’s an IAHC and AADP Board Certified International Health Coach, Certified Nutritional Aesthetics Practitioner®, licensed aesthetician; and natural skincare formulator and educator. She’s the creator of the popular skincare and healthy lifestyle blog, Holistically Haute, as well as the online boutique skincare certification and business course, Create Your Skincare: Professional Edition.
Rachael received her health coaching education from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition®, where she was the recipient of the school’s prestigious Health Leadership Award, and her aesthetics education from the Vision Academy Paul Mitchell Partner School. She also has a Bachelor of Science degree from Philadelphia University and Bachelor of Metaphysical Science from the University of Metaphysics. She is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Holistic Life Counseling. Rachael also holds additional certifications in metaphysical science, detoxification, acupressure, cosmetic chemistry, Reiki, Chinese Facial Diagnosis, and Ayurveda. She’s an avid herbalist, self-professed skincare ingredient junkie, and lifelong learner.
Rachael’s worked in various aspects of the beauty and health industries for nearly two decades, but it wasn’t until she personally experienced how the combination of improving her diet and lifestyle, in addition to switching to plant-based, non-invasive skincare regimen cleared up her severe acne–an issue she’d been struggling with for most of her life. By adopting positive mindset changes, she was also able to improve her self-image and self-confidence–other areas she’d struggled with for most of her life. Her personal journey caused not just a change in her personal life, but also in her professional life, as she realized how many women are held back from living joyful and fulfilled lives due to their own struggles with skin and self-image issues.
Rachael began working with some of these women, utilizing a combined focus on nutrition and health, the skin and skincare ingredients, and mindset/self-image modification. When she saw how quickly they experienced the same positive results as she had–and were able to sustain these results–her one-of-a-kind coaching practice was born.
It soon became her dream to create a professional organization unifying health coaches and nutrition professionals with aestheticians–the two groups of professionals who primarily work with women with skin conditions in a consultative fashion. By educating, empowering, and supporting these professionals, more women could be freed from the physical, emotional, and spiritual bonds of skin conditions so they too, could achieve their lives’ purposes. Uniting with well respected and like-minded professionals like Tisha, Sandra, and Jolene to form the Nutritional Aesthetics™ Alliance made this dream a reality.
