Hi!, I'm Heidi, and I want to help you look at Skincare in a new way. A way that will guide you to your glow. A way that creates clear results, not confusion. A way that cuts through the misinformation to find solutions that are tailored to your individual needs. This way is the Skincare Heidi Method.
There are no one-size-fits-all answers in skincare so the Skincare Heidi Method is all about personal empowerment. Every face is different and everyone has different skin – it’s your face and you should know it better than anyone. So while I can’t read a crystal ball that reveals your ideal regimen I can support you in making an educated guess as to what might work for you. You can learn how to decide for yourself which advice to follow and how to test it.
My method is based on TRIAL and ERROR and uses the scientific method of eliminating multiple variables. I will teach you how to test one thing at a time so that you can build a skincare routine that is practical and effective.
I will demonstrate techniques to make the most of your time and products.
I will guide you in planning for the future so that your skincare continues to be effective.
I will examine specific issues that are common but difficult to deal with.
I will convert you from thinking of *anti-age* skincare and help you transition to a routine that supports overall health, calm and beauty.
IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS SITE ACCESSIBLE TO ALL I HAVE KEPT all my CONTENT AVAILABLE FOR FREE, including all Coaching Circles. COMMENTING IS reserved for members.
The Skincare Heidi Promise
NO FILTERS – IF THERE’S AN IMAGE OF ME, IT’S REALLY ME. I hope you'll follow my lead!
NO FREEBIES – I’VE PAID FOR EVERYTHING I USE (*ONE EXCEPTION)
NO FAKES – ALL REVIEWS, MEMBERS & COMMENTS ARE REAL.
Don’t bother looking for any advertising disclosures because I don’t need them (ok, there is JUST one – please see my Quick Word about Deciem below). I don’t get free stuff, press samples or swag. I don’t have Google ads on this site tracking your clicks and targeting you with ads, so if you like what you see I urge you to visit my COACHING page and hire me to be your coach! Or become a MEMBER. I pay for stuff with my own money. I’m not an industry insider. I’m here because I want to help others cut through the murky world of online skincare and get some good honest feedback.
I will endeavour to hold all Skincare Heidi Members to this same standard (although I won’t stop others from posting filtered pics of themselves it is highly discouraged, and I won’t be doing it). I reserve the right to delete anything posted to this site that is misleading, confusing or makes unsupported claims. I also won’t tolerate bullies or misinformation, although banter and healthy debate is invited. I cannot provide guarantees, however I can lend my 25+ years of learning and curiosity.

karma pledge? what's that? HOW MUCH?
This site is in memoriam of my good friend Adrienne Watson. Whenever I start to lose perspective thinking about my routine or my flaws, I remember her and remind myself of the women living on the street who don’t get to wash their faces. Adrienne, I miss you.
The Skincare Heidi Karma Pledge is my way of making this site about more than Skincare. It's also my way of making us all accountable to each other by identifying who is ready to make a commitment to themselves and to being a part of this community.

* A quick word about Deciem and gifting
I wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t been lucky enough to receive a gift from Deciem in recognition of my status as a top contributor in a certain Facebook Fan Group (which I am no longer a part of). That was when I realised that I had the opportunity to make a genuine impact in the lives of others. If I had known I was going to start this project I would have declined, but it’s too late now. I was able to choose my own products which were all products I had used previously and paid for. And then, because they were unable to send me one of the products I requested they offered me a bottle of CAIS. So yes, I used that bottle. This has been the one and only time that I will have to disclose any freebies.
