Dermal Therapist | Holistic Aesthetician | Oncology Aesthetician |
Aromatherapist | Nutritionist | Educator
In an exceptional and expansive career spanning more than 30 years, Donna-Cummins Campbell has worked in every aspect of the beauty industry – from spas and salons as a beauty therapist, aromatherapist and make-up artist to research laboratories, product development and as a key industry advisor and educator.
Donna is an experienced educator, having worked in the beauty and dermal space since 1996 and has contributed to industry advisory boards as well as co-writing the nationally recognized Advanced Diploma of Dermal Science and Therapies (Australia). She has been instrumental in training many of today’s educators and industry leaders and continues to provide first class education with her own training facility, AWE Academy.
Donna is a pioneer in this industry becoming one of Australia’s first dermal therapists, working alongside plastic surgeons and cosmetic scientists in 2000. A self-confessed science nerd, Donna says that one of her coolest jobs was working as the National Educator and Research Specialist for a high-end cosmeceutical skin care company developing and helping to test their product range.
“I love the science and biology behind skin care. The skin is our largest organ and should be treated as such.”
“This is also what inspires me to keep learning. When I became an Educator, I realised I needed to know more”, so along with study in Health Science, she has a qualification in Nutritional Medicine and is passionate about incorporating health and wellness into education programs.
“We are constantly being educated about health and wellness and yet our largest organ, the skin, is often neglected. Our skin serves a vital health role and needs to be considered when looking at nutrition. As well as internal nutrition, topical nutrition is crucial for maintaining a healthy skin and with the development of cosmeceutical skin care products; we can now easily provide specific nutrients required for the skin to function as a healthy organ. The combination of internal nutrition and topical nutritional therapy makes such a difference to health and wellbeing. This is my specialty, and I love to educate in this field. Welcome to Holistic Aesthetics, such an exciting paradigm, and forever rewarding.”
