Even when you’re ready to relax and get beautified, actually getting to the spa can sometimes feel like yet one. more. task.
But, Carina Brooks King has an easy solution: she travels to you. The only caveat—you just have to live in the Orlando-area.
When she became an esthetician, Carina says that she was well aware of how wellness has been so often neglected by us, that she wanted to make it her business to encourage women to prioritize this practice.
And, her mobile spa makes beauty services accessible and convenient.

How long have you been a practicing esthetician?

When it’s time to get a facial, who gives you yours?
For people living in your immediate area, what advice would you give to them for protecting their skin from the local environment?
Here in Florida, it’s all about sunscreen and keeping your skin moisturized—the sun can reach temperatures of almost 100! And in the “winter,” it can be very dry. Always wear sunscreen, even under makeup and make sure your skin is moisturized daily.
What is your proudest accomplishment in the esthetics industry?
Lasting 10 years and having my services recognized by some of the top names in the industry.
