“Having dealt with acne for most of my life, I know what it is like to not have perfect skin. From my personal insights comes my passion for skin care that I strive to share with my clients.”
Victoria Riordan, with a passion for skin care and an overall healthy lifestyle, began her aesthetics journey more than 20 years ago.
Victoria, a mother of two young children, comes from a background in both topicals and injectables. It’s her knowledge of both sides of the aesthetics industry that enables her to offer a unique approach to skin care.
Growing up, Victoria had a very difficult time with her acne, thus sparking an interest in skin care. She wanted to know why her skin was reacting the way it was and how could she prevent her flareups and improve the complexion of her skin. She also wanted to use that knowledge to help others. Hence, her journey into the world of aesthetics was born, leading her to this moment.
Victoria’s healthy, active lifestyle brings a vibrancy and energy to SkynBar that is felt by all. As a co-founder of SkynBar, she believes in a no-nonsense approach to skin care with products that are eco-friendly and only have non-toxic ingredients.
