Florence Barrett-Hill is an internationally acclaimed dermal science educator, practitioner, researcher, and author with a vast experience covering all aspects of professional aesthetic therapy and paramedical skin care. Florence holds over a dozen diplomas and international qualifications covering every aspect of modern skin treatment therapy, and is well respected by her industry peers for her 30+ years of knowledge she loves to share.

Florence has trained both generic and brand specific philosophies, understanding the wide range of treatment modalities, and their place in the industry. With wide experience from owning and operating clinics, through to paramedical technical experience in the post operative care of burns survivors and plastic surgery patients and the formulation of skin care products, Florence is a uniquely talented industry practitioner who intimately knows her subject and is passionate about continually raising the standards of professional beauty therapy and skin care.

Florence has spent the last 30 years continually educating herself in all aspects of professional skin care, passing on her knowledge through acclaimed training courses and publications. Florence has written hundreds of technical papers and manuals covering many aspects of paramedical skin treatment, and has published a number of industry related documents in both print and web media. Her research is ongoing; with beauty industry topical subjects being presented in both seminars and online learning courses.
Florence was the creator of the first education-only website for the skin care professional, back in 2000. 

In 2004, Florence published the ground breaking book; Advanced Skin Analysis, a text now read by professional skin care therapists and aesthetic tutors in 16 countries worldwide in four languages.
Her successive book, Cosmetic Chemistry was released in 2009 and is a follow on from the skin analysis book that approaches a technical subject in the language of the therapist and practitioner. Praise for Florence’s philosophy, content and delivery has been high, with accolades from training providers and practitioners internationally.
