Lydia Sarfati in Anniversary Video

The U.S. day spa as we know it today didn't become popular until the 1980s, and pioneering the movement for professional skin care at that time was Lydia Sarfati, founder of Repêchage. Sarfati took some time out of her busy schedule to speak to Skin Inc. about how she got started in this industry.

In this video, Sarfati explains how she got the attention of national beauty and fashion magazines and became known as the "queen of blackheads" by offering effective deep pore cleansing. She also discusses how she got into naturals, why she created her own brand and how facials have gone express in the last few years.
