Known as America’s Skin Saint™, Holly Cutler became a celebrity medical aesthetician after rebuilding her own skin damaged by severe cystic acne. In the two decades since, she created FACE Skincare~Medical~Wellness, one of the most advanced med spas in the country. She is a speaker and expert for her industry, appearing on FOX, CBS, ABC, NBC, The Doctors, and in several national publications. To help those who can’t access her services in-house, she created the first national virtual skincare consulting company.

What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?

After struggling with my own skin for years, I found an incredible aesthetician who was able to resolve the worst of my cystic acne and set me on the path to feeling confident in myself. I realized there was a huge opportunity in this space to change lives, and I knew I could innovate on existing treatments and concepts to have an even greater impact.

What drives you to keep working hard each day?

Having a purpose larger than myself. I go to work each day knowing that what I do really makes a difference in the lives of others. It’s a lot easier to feel connected to what you do when you know you’re creating value.

Do you have any advice for others looking to do what you’ve done?

Don’t do it for the money. Business isn’t easy, and if you’re in it only for the money you won’t last. Pursue what you love, and the money will come.
