Zoe Myers

Owner & Director of Authentic Aesthetics

My name is Zoe Myers and I am a self confessed skin addict! I have a passion for it and knew from an early age that I wanted to be an Aesthetician. I was fortunate enough to start my career at MediZen - the midlands premier Aesthetic clinic when I was 18 and received incredible training from the highly experienced staff while putting myself through a BTEC Level 4 in Aesthetics and BTEC in lasers.

During my 4 years at the clinic I had a wide variety of equipment available to treat my clients, these included; HydraFacial, medical needling, laser hair removal, laser vein removal, resurfacing lasers, radio frequency for skin tightening, electrolysis hair removal, advanced electrolysis, Miradry sweat reduction and many more.

Following on from my time in the clinic I felt like I needed a new challenge so joined the HydraFacial UK team working as a customer experience specialist. This involved helping clinics to promote HydraFacial by offering training & running events to educate their clients in skin health. At this time myself and my sister Madi, who is a nutritionist, decided that we wanted to share our knowledge with the world so we created Skin & Shit, an impartial blog giving advice on nutrition and skincare treatments available on the market.

My experience over the last 7 years with these different insights into the Aesthetic industry made me realise that what I truly love in life is treating clients and educating them in their skin health. I believe that everyone has the right to feel confident in their skin and so the concept of Authentic Aesthetics was born.

My mission is to not only to perform treatments, but to also educate my clients in how their skin works so that they can have complete faith in why I have chosen that treatment for them and how it will give them the best skin of their life!

I hope to see you soon - Zoe Myers

With over 10 years experience working in the beauty industry I have been lucky enough to work in some of the top salons, spas and skin clinics around the world. I started out working on cruise ships and ended up in Australia!

My passion for skin started whilst working in a skin clinic in Australia. During my time here I was using IPL, skin peels, oxygen facials and LED light therapy.

Since moving back to England in 2011 I took a mini career break whilst having my family, I’m a very proud mum to 3 crazy gorgeous boys! I ran my own mobile beauty business during this time and worked in a local beauty salon.

Now my children are growing, this is my time to get back to my passion of skin! I struggle with my own skin having dealt with acne roseacea for the last 10 years which adds to my passion for knowledge in learning about the skin, how and why we get these conditions and the best possible way to help them. I am passionate about working with clients to achieve their best skin and educating them into how we can do that.
