How I Fell In Love With Skin



As a make-up artist for 10 years I worked with various photographers from California to Florida.  I began my journey as a stylist at Barbizon in San Francisco, prepping young models for their IMTA photoshoots both in studio and on location.  Later, becoming a MAC make-up artist while attending San Francisco State College for Fashion Merchandising and completing a degree in business administration at Laney College in Oakland, California.

After finishing school I moved to Tampa, FL and began working for Lancome as a premier make-up artist while also pursuing my career as a fashion and fitness model. When I arrived in Miami I was determined to work as a free-lance make-up artist part-time and a full-time model, while also continuing my education at Florida College of Natural Health to graduate with a degree in Science with a Concentration in Natural Health under the Paramedical Advanced Skin Care program.

I have now been a licensed medical aesthetician with the advanced skin care qualifications to perform pre/post operative duties in the cosmetic or dermatological fields for 10 years. I have worked with plastic surgeons in Miami and independently as a mobile medical aesthetician specializing in many different treatments and now focusing on building a business and brand around her expertise. My focus is to treat skin conditions from the inside out while providing natural health solutions.



Not Just Another Chemist


Introducing my friend and business partner, Candice Frederick!  We have and are currently working on a number of projects including our non-profit ProGreen Movement.  We both completed our Paramedical Skincare program at Florida College of Natural Health and decided to form businesses based around our skincare and wellness expertise.  Candice and I have plans on expanding our visions this year and finally complete our mini-empire. 
Founder /CEO of OhMyGosh Alternative Medicine& Aromatherapy Spa/Salon Formulations, Candice N. Frederick bares the title of Paramedical Skincare Specialist and a novel innovative developer in Biomedical/Chemical Engineering. Born in Detroit, Michigan but raised in Chesapeake Virginia, this Northern/East Coast girl knew from the start  the commonly used phrase “OhMyGosh” was more than just an everyday expression.

Having the mentality of an Engineer since high school and always engulfed in every lab project as a youth, Candice found herself advancing towards the direction of her lifelong passion while pursuing a Bachelors in Chemical Engineering at North Carolina A&T State University. Her dream would be that she would someday turn this passion into the creation of innovative consumer products. As a student, she channeled this passion during a successful internship at 3M where she created a pilot size machine for adhesive coating and later at an early career at Proctor & Gamble establishing a foam stability mechanism in soap concentrated products using a novel polymer combination.

Constantly infatuated with the engineering of innovative products, Candice found herself in constant research and self-studies on new cancer developments, diabetic clinical trials, and multiple sclerosis breakthroughs – just to name a few, to better assist her on the chemical imbalance of the body and how it relates to these specific diseases.

She later pursued a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering with a concentration in Polymer Studies from NYU Polytechnic in Brooklyn, New York which was her stepping stone towards her application of biology with technical engineering principles to provide innovation in the fields of medical instrumentation, the research of medical ailments, and product development. During her studies she also designed an internal Bluetooth operated device used to detect abnormal neurological changes in the body before a seizure occurred in epilepsy patients with the readings then sent wirelessly to the patient’s doctor in an EKG/ECG format. Ultimately, the device would trigger the transdermal alternative medicine patch located on the patient to suppress the seizure with the compatible complimentary medicine.  (Patent pending)

Candice now finds herself in Miami where she’s combined her love of science, health, and beauty to launch OMG. She’s received licensing as a Florida Paramedical Skincare Specialist and is certified in the following:  Ayurveda, Aromatherapy, Herbiology , Microdermabrasion and Rapid Exfoliants/Peels. All of her training combined with her extensive research has led her to focus OMG on cosmetic research for women involving cell renewal and anti-aging product improvement with an overall passion of discovering natural wellness for all.
















AMOURSKIN.COM


L’amour de la Peau = Love Skin, is fashion with a purpose.
“Celebrating the love of natural beauty.” 

www.amourskin.com

All of our girls are born beautiful.  Loving the skin that your’e in creates a confidence and inner glow that cannot be taken from you.  We live in a world full of change and progression that constantly influences our thoughts of who we are and how we were so perfectly created.

When I came up with the idea to create a logo for apparel that was not only fashionable but also meaningful, I wanted it to be something that would reflect who I am and my roots.  Being of Louisiana creole decent on my father’s side I decided to be kinda creative and go with L’Amour de la Peau which means ‘love skin’ in English. The meaning behind L’amour de la peau was the love that I have for skin care and also the love I have for the skin that I am in.  Even deeper than that is my concern for how young women and girls have become so influenced by what they see on social media, television and on the internet. 

With so many new cosmetic procedures and treatments hitting the market almost daily to improve the way you look who can blame them, right?  But, there needs to be more conversation and understanding of why someone is wanting to make such changes to their face or body is my opinion.  My background in the beauty industry, working for plastic surgeons and as a medical aesthetician has exposed me to a lot…I mean, A LOT!  I am a therapist and like to thoroughly consult my patients before suggesting a procedure or treatment for them; I always want to know what bothers them the most and first suggest an alternative treatment for them.


Creating this brand was very exciting for me as I was able to express my creative side while also sharing a message about something that I am so passionate about.  I hope you will enjoy my message and the apparel that I created with so much love!
