Linda Harding-Bond has made her mark as one of the go-to educators and estheticians for global skin types. With an open mind and a universal passion for the skin care industry, the master esthetician, spa consultant and president of Moontide Consulting spent an entire month this year training more than 80 skin care professionals at the The Oberoi Udaivilas, which is part of the Oberoi Group of hotels and resorts, in India.

“That was a major blessing, and I need to keep the momentum going,” says Harding-Bond. “I don’t have a minute to waste.”

That’s just one aspect of her life. The 18-year professional skin care industry veteran, who was honored by Philadelphia Style magazine in 2005 for the “Best Facial” and “Best Waxing” in the city, also works at the Rescue Rittenhouse Spa in Philadelphia. With her innate knack for education—her father was a teacher—Harding-Bond began to focus on offering culturally aware spa training services and instructing other skin care professionals on client engagement.
