KRISTEN ALVAREZ, Licensed Esthetician

 

a bit about me...

 

I am an esthetician with 17 years experience, and I'm passionate about helping others with their skin. After years of dealing with my own skin issues (severe cystic acne!), I was inspired to dive into the study of esthetics. After graduating from Philadelphia's Jean Madeline Aveda Institute, I threw my hands into the work (literally!) at several major spas and eventually had a successful business along with my sister who is a massage therapist. We made a great duo and had three wonderful years growing our Little Herban Spa but life took a new direction as I was expecting a child! Now that my precious baby has turned into a little girl, I have returned to my skincare practice, reincarnated as Herban Skin Therapy. I am obsessed with organic skincare, the purity and effectiveness of ingredients and the art of the facial. I view each session with my clients as an opportunity to send their skin, mind and body on a transcendant journey of cleansing, healing and rejuvination.
