Wendy York Aesthetic Biography

One of my earliest memories of skin care, beyond watching my mom put on Pond’s cold cream before her shower, was when a Mary Kay rep came to our house for a product party. Hearing talks of wrinkle cure-alls, I was intrigued enough to get up the courage to ask what I should use on my eyes. I remember her saying, with a chuckle, that I was too young for an eye cream. I felt defeated with her answer. Down, but not out, my instinct insisted preventative measures would work, even at the young age of 10.

A couple years later, I witnessed my sister lying on the living room floor waiting for her bright St. Ives green mask to crack. It dried so tight she could not move her face! Were the results amazing? I don’t remember exactly, but she did get her first kiss that night, so perhaps she was glowing in more ways than one. I realized early on that skin products were also a rite of passage and used for special occasions with potentially life-changing results.

My first beauty tips came from Christie Brinkley’s Outdoor Beauty and Fitness Book, which I read cover to cover, over and over. In the summer of ’86, you could find me sunbathing in the hills of Ventura, pouring fresh squeezed lemon juice in my hair for naturally sun-kissed blonde highlights. Ms. Brinkley’s book confirmed to me that you do not have to wait until you are wrinkly to start caring for yourself. The tips and pointers were worth it; they worked. Ms. Brinkley’s book became my “Bible on Beauty” and lit a spark that only flickered years before. I felt I had intuitively discovered something big! I soon told my piano teacher that I wanted to quit my lessons because I wanted to join a gym!

In the 90s, I got married, finished graduate school, divorced and through it all, religiously got facials by my mentor, Janice Mosher at New Day Salon, Ventura. Taking a leap in 2004, I happily completed my esthetics license from Santa Barbara City College and quickly continued my education earning a post-graduate diploma from the International Dermal Institute while working at Dermalogica’s Flagship Store in Santa Monica. After joining the opening team of Spa Montage Beverly Hills in 2008, a holistic approach to skin care blossomed. After opportunity knocked in April 2016, I took another leap and rented a spa room in beautiful and quaint downtown Sierra Madre, CA. This small town, sitting just beneath the San Gabriel Mountains, is the perfect place, I think, for a facial practice that supports sustainability, locally-made, and the ingredient-conscious consumer. This resinates with me in the facial products I purposefully choose to use during the facial as well as facial accessories, such as bamboo linens, upcycled furniture, and low electricity usage. The energy here is one of low-key trailblazing with a hint of ancestral flair. Sierra Madre has a history of attracting “beatniks and odd jobs,” and I think that suits me fine.

In my facials, I focus on an ultra-relaxing, non-invasive, and results-oriented treatment, with no downtime. My love of learning propels my interest in aesthetics, aromatherapy and homeopathy. I love dabbling in oils, fresh and dried herbs, and homemade remedies, always asking, how pure can this be? What makes this unique? I cut through all the hype. My influence is evident when my daughter gets an “owie” and instead of asking for a Band-Aid, she confidently states, “I need some oil!”

When I am not giving facials, you can find me at the nearest health food/wellness store reading product labels. I enjoy researching on the internet for all things non-toxic and experimenting with gluten-free recipes. I enjoy making beeswax candles, bath salts and any eco-friendly craft project, while listening to goosebump-worthy music.
