Let’s get to know Angela “Angie” Nesci, LE more!
Question: Besides having a passion for skin/skincare what are other things that interest you?
Angie: I love working out/lifting weights first thing in the morning; it helps me clear my mind and set intentions for my day.
Q: Who or what inspired you to get into skincare?
A: I’ve never had clear skin, I had acne as an adolescent (and still as an adult) but being educated on proper skincare and ways to improve my skin health was a confidence booster in my life. I wanted to be able to give that to other people.
Q: What’s your golden skincare rule that you tell your patients to always follow?
A: Less is more, using more products does not equal better skin. Consistency is key.
Q: What’s the worst skincare trend you’ve seen/heard of and what’s an alternative to the trend?
A: DIY skincare masks and creams! Natural/household ingredients are great but blending them yourself can cause more harm than good. Patients should see an esthetician or dermatologist for a consultation to discuss products that are suitable for their skincare needs and skin type.
Q: If you weren’t a Licensed Esthetician what career do you see yourself having?
A: There is always a part in an EPIC movie scene where the background music kicks in….. I want to be the person who puts the music there.
