Vanessa Hernandez Skin Care
How many years have you been in business in LA?
How did you get your start and what was your initial inspiration?
A woman with beautiful skin hired me while sitting next to her at a dinner party. She then became my boss, my second mom, and my roommate, and most importantly my mentor, teaching me all about skincare and how to run a business. Together we built a bi-coastal skin care practice, traveling to New York City every week for 3 years. She truly inspired me by showing me that anything is possible if you work hard and have discipline. She also cleared up my skin, at the time I had adult acne.

How do you benefit mamas?
