We’re incredibly proud of NAA members and Certified Nutritional Aesthetics Practitioner students, and the unique ways that they apply the Nutritional Aesthetics® philosophy in their personal and professional lives. It’s our goal to support them and share their wisdom by highlighting their stories with you in a periodic ‘Member on a Mission’ feature. Our latest featured member, Theresa Tambos, of Glowgirl Skincare has successfully brought together her passion for Mother Earth with holistic nutrition and integrative aesthetics.
As a Culinary school graduate and mom of four, Theresa spent years making everything from scratch, trying to raise the kids on healthy nutritious food.
Being an avid reader, it didn’t take long to find nutrition books, which led her to going back to school to study nutrition, and change her family’s diet to natural, alive, organic foods. Her skin changed too, all thanks to her clean diet.
Theresa loves walking on the beach, and developed hyperpigmentation as a result of the constant sun exposure. She tried every spa treatment, and it just wouldn’t fade so she enrolled in aesthetics school to learn about the skin and how to treat it. She quickly discovered I had a real passion for the skin too.
After graduating, she decided to put her two passions together and open Glowgirl Skincare in Newmarket, Ontario. She use very few modalities, and includes nutrition in her home-care plan. She’s real with people and they respect that. She tells them that healthy skin will come if they are committed to what it takes to get there.
We spoke to Certified Nutritional Aesthetics Practitioner student, Theresa Tambos, about the role that Nutritional Aesthetics® plays in her business and her approach to skin health:
Nutritional Aesthetics Alliance:
What excites you the most about the Nutritional Aesthetics Alliance?
What excites me about the Nutritional Aesthetics Alliance is that the access to information is endless. I know I can trust the information to be sourced, up to date, and relevant. Clients like to be informed; they find information on the Internet and always ask a lot questions. It’s important for me to have the most up-to-date information available, to answer questions and be viewed as a professional who can be trusted.
How do you apply Nutritional Aesthetics® principles to your work?
Incorporating the Nutritional Aesthetics® Alliance principles is very easy for me because, I already ‘walk the talk.’ My passion for nutrition and skincare is strong. My clients can see that I believe every word I say, and that I’m not just regurgitating someone else’s words. At Glowgirl Skincare, I advise my clients that the key to healthy skin is not just skincare treatments and topicals; it’s also dependent on a nutrient rich diet. I think it’s an exciting time to be a part of this industry!
Please complete this sentence, and elaborate as much as you wish: “For optimal skin health, I wish people would do more of ___________________, and less of ___________________.”
For optimal skin health, I wish people would would understand that no amount of skincare topicals or treatments can replace a healthy, nutrient-dense diet. I wish people would do less of letting the Internet or skincare “influencers” sell them on the next trend to healthy skin or diet. Healthy skin is a lifestyle choice–not a quick fix.
We are so grateful to Theresa Tambos for being a dedicated Certified Nutritional Aesthetics Practitioner® student, and member of the Nutritional Aesthetics® Alliance!
