From a swimsuit to scrubs, Zia regularly subjects herself to the elements.
A surfer for 15 years and an avid snowboarder for 30, an Emergency Medicine nurse for 17 years, and a mom of twin eight year-old girls, it’s safe to say Zia can handle pressure. Everyday her life throws her something different, and Zia needed a long-lasting treatment that would be effective for the days spent in the hospital, the ocean, or the mountains.
In her eyes, confidence is key. Believing in herself and trusting her talent is necessary, whether it be with surfing, snowboarding, or nursing. It is also just as essential in being a great mom.
As a licensed medical professional, Zia was experienced enough to be choosy about her skincare. That’s why she chose SkinSpirit’s San Francisco location, where she’s been a client for over a year now. She simply can’t imagine going anywhere else!
Zia’s favorite treatment is the platelet-rich plasma facial (a.k.a “the vampire facial”), a procedure that involves a course of microdermabrasion followed by a mask of platelet-rich plasma which stimulates skin cell turnover. The result is brighter, even and plumper-looking skin – even after going straight into a 12-hour shift the day after her facial. She still hasn’t worn makeup since! Plus, there’s no downtime, and Zia considers the procedure painless.
Zia can’t live without Skinceuticals Serum, which accelerates sun protection and protects her against the elements while surfing.
