I am a doctor with a love of light, energy and science.
My fascination with skin and energy began years ago. As a laser dermatology specialist, I have seen how energy transforms skin. Every cell in our body glows brighter when filled with energy and vitality. Energy brings life to skin. Skin that is filled with energy is healthy, glowing and brighter.
After years of working with lasers to energize skin, I asked what amazing things could we accomplish if we could energize the skin using natural botanicals instead of lasers?
What if we could energize skin to glow again?
What if we energize skin to heal itself?
What if we energize skin to fight off stress and damage?
What if we re-energize aging skin to renew?
And so I began my quest to discover botanicals that would restore vitality to skin.
Guided by the knowledge given to me by my grandmother, an Ayurvedic healer, I traveled the world to research the abundant revitalizing power of nature. The more I studied, the more it strengthened my belief that energizing botanicals could breathe new life into skin.
My purpose is to formulate enlightened skincare formulas that consciously combine energizing botanicals with scientifically proven ingredients. So your skin can recharge, restore and evolve into the best version of itself.

The power of bodhi and persian rose awakens skin with a brighter complexion. Skin is left brighter and refreshed, with less brown spots and discoloration.
In my practice, I recommend using a cleanser with glycolic acid instead of physically exfoliating with harsh tools like loofahs. I tell patients to use their hands in a soft, circular massaging technique to exfoliate and stimulate circulation.
They’re rich in anthocyanin, an antioxidant that neutralizes the free radicals that lead to wrinkles, brown spots and dry skin
