After developing cystic acne as a teenager, Patricia Gerrie studied with dermatologist, Harry Roth, learning the medical aspects of skin care and cosmetician, Jeanne Rose, discovering hands-on homemade skin care. Gerrie has taken courses in cosmetic chemistry and the endocrine system, and received her esthetics license from Hilltop Beauty School in Daly City, California in 1979. She opened Skincare for the ‘80s, now Skincare Forever, that same year.

Q: What made you decide to go into the skin care industry?

A: “My own suffering with acne and how nobody could fix it. Helping people understand how to take care of their skin problems is very rewarding ... Health has always been an interest to me, and I believe that the wisdom of the body is true—our body will tell us what we need and don’t need. It’s just listening to it that’s the hard part.”
