During a recent trip to Wellington, Hayley and I were meeting with Demetria from Enhance Churton Park, and were discussing an upcoming event at a local school where Dr Libby Weaver was to be presenting to a group of women on her book ‘Beauty From the Inside Out’. I first heard of Dr Libby a few years ago from a friend and am personally very interested in the role that nutrition and lifestyle play in our overall health, as well as the health of our skin.

At the time we were in the process of investigating another guest speaker to add to our line up for the Future Skin Today event on Monday 28th July (click here for more info), and we all agreed during the meeting that wouldn’t it be AMAZING to have Dr Libby speak at this event… she has quite a following from women all over New Zealand, and being in the industry that we are in, I am sure skin therapists throughout the country take a professional interest (and a personal one!) in her philosophies.

I decided to contact Dr Libby’s office immediately on the off chance that she might be available to speak at our event… and imagine my surprise and delight when she was! The team at S.H.E are all thrilled that Dr Libby will be joining us, along with Dr Diana Howard and Emma Hobson (from the International Dermal Institute), for the industry speaker event for 2014! I was so excited I almost did a few cartwheels around the office! (almost!)

What I did do is immediately buy a few of her books! After reading up on Dr Libby on her website (drlibby.com) it occurred to me that I am probably suffering from ‘Rushing Women's Syndrome’ (add to cart) and the recipe books looked divine (also added to cart). A few chapters in to her books and I am already feeling a sense of inner calm, I have more focus on my breathing, and the nutrients from the super foods I am eating are certainly complimenting my Multivitamin Power Serum and giving back some glow to my skin!

By this stage, you have no doubt worked out that I am well on my way to being Dr Libby’s biggest fan! I am sure that we all have so much to learn from her – information that can benefit our own health and also the health of our clients. I look forward to seeing many of you at our Future Skin Today event on the 28th July for a day of inspiration, motivation, education… and networking!

Finally… a big thank you to Demetria for influencing our speaker line up for the day!
