An Interview with Skincare Expert Maryam Tabrizi
Today, I am bringing you something I've never brought you before - an interview! As I get older, I get more and more concerned about my skin. I'm definitely guilty of going in tanning beds when I was a stupid teenager, as were my friends, and you know what? Some of them have already been diagnosed with skin cancer. Teenagers are stupid, and I was no exception. When I met Maryam Tabrizi through the M2M Marketing Network, I thought, I need to interview this girl and get some deeper insight into skincare. She has a true passion for skincare and really cares about her clients. Enjoy :)
Sarah Noel (SN): First off, why don't you tell my readers a little about yourself.
Maryam Tabrizi (MT): Hi, my name is Maryam and I'm a proud wife and mother of a 3 1/2 yr old little boy. Originally from Wisconsin, we moved here 6 years ago. I decided it was time for a change in careers and left my social work job for a passion of mine-skincare. I went back to school full time and started working in the health, wellness, and beauty field. being a licensed esthetician has changed my life in so many ways. I am still helping people but in a way that is creative, healthy, and positive. I've been working at a spa in the Gold Coast for 2 1/2 years and also have my own mobile spa business , FreshbyMaryam. I bring the spa to mommies at home! Whether it's a facial, waxing, or tinting of brows/ lashes, I enjoy making people feel better and more confident about themselves.
SN: What caused your career transition?
MT: I had "made it" in terms of career advancements and was on a track to go higher but found myself stressed and not happy. My husband encouraged me to go for my dreams and once he was offered a job in Chicago I took it as a sign to change it up. Best decision I ever made!
SN: That's great! What is the biggest mistake women make in terms of their skincare routine?
MT: One..so many! Lol. Either not wearing daily sunscreen or not washing skin before bed
SN: I don't know how people can't wash their face before bed. I feel like I'm caked in the day by then! If you could only do one thing each day for your skin, what one thing would be your priority?
MT: So hard to just pick one! Sunscreen. 90% of aging is from the sun. You'd be shocked at how the most intelligent, capable, women are horrible with their skin.
SN: Ugh, I know I'm guilty! Tell us about your at home events with your mobile spa.
MT: I'm sure your not that bad!:) I provide at home spa services such as waxing, tinting, facials. It started off when I had my son and meeting new mommy friends. We were talking about what everyone did and I would say I was a skin therapist. I had an at home wax kit and started waxing my mommy friends at playdates! Then it morphed into facials and then a small side biz. Since then, I go to mommy groups, spa nights, I have event given facials to a couple at home on valentines day. It's awesome and I love it.
SN: That sounds like an amazing business. What area do you service?
MT: Mainly, the city of Chicago.
SN: Okay, great - I'll let you get back to it. Thank you for taking the time to allow me to interview!
