Jane Wurwand, Building the Business Series: Face Mapping-The Power of Connection

March 5, 2018

Understanding your skin isn’t just about what you see on the surface. There is a deeper connection that can be uncovered and Dermalogica does that through Face Mapping. In this episode Jane Wurwand, Founder and Chief Visionary of Dermalogica, takes us through the concept of Face Mapping. This skin analysis is a true journey to help you understand your skin, and it all begins with a conversation and the power of human touch.

Jane shares how Face Mapping was created, why it’s core to Dermalogica’s DNA and personal stories of how it’s impacted her as a skin therapist and so many others.

Face Mapping is so much more involved than just looking at the skin; it begins the relationship and builds the trust between clients and skin therapists all over the world.
