Skincare opened the door to Burke Williams for Vice President of Treatments and Development, Diane Hibbard. From her early days as an Esthetician, skin care has remained the forefront of Hibbard’s passion. Hibbard’s love of skin care eventually led her to an active and hands-on role within the company and in the development of the world-class H2V skin care line. From working with estheticians, managers and the entire Burke Williams team, Hibbard strives to provide the most well-trained team in the industry.
Now, as head of the H2V skin care line and VP of Treatments and Development, Hibbard is constantly researching skin care and remains in the know about new and upcoming result-driven products and treatments to incorporate in the luxurious treatments offered at Burke Williams. Hibbard dishes on her inspiration for Burke Williams treatments and the best way to transform your skin from winter to spring.
As the Vice President of Treatments and Development, what do you use for inspiration when designing therapeutic and relaxing services at Burke Williams?
For skin care treatments the first thing I look at is; What is the need of our guests? Is there a new way to treat guests’ concerns? Is there a way to get a better result or aspect of skin care that we can tap into? For the spa, our main focus is bringing in tested and results-driven treatments that will help nourish and repair the skin while providing guests with a relaxing and transformational skin care treatment that they could not get anywhere else.
I’m very active in the skin care industry, I’m at all the trade shows and skin care shows researching and testing new products, staying current with the trends and market to improve our treatments so that each time guest comes in for a service, their results are constantly improving.
Do you utilize the same dependable and results-driven treatments when developing products for the H2V skincare line?
We do. We tend to stay away from the trends. We’re constantly researching, testing and developing products that we know are scientifically tested that will provide our guests with the best results in the safest way possible. We’re focused on the quality of the product rather than the amount of products in the line. We launch new products about every 12-18 months, we aim to create a product that fills the needs of our customers and can provide proven results.
As the weather transitions, how can Burke Williams guests transition their skincare routine from winter to spring?
Your skin changes with each season. The air is more humid in the spring/summer which can lead to more breakouts. HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE, I can’t stress it enough, hydrate your skin with water-based products. Moisture Enhance from our H2V line would be a perfect product to utilize in rehydrating your skin after the dry and cold winter months, it’s a light-wear product that utilizes hyaluronic acid, which is scientifically proven to replenish moisture in the skin. Summer means more sunshine and sunscreen is always a must, it’s critical when protecting your skin from getting dark spots. Protect is a great daytime SPF moisturizer to utilize during the summer months.
You can never go wrong with the Radiance Facial, it’s the newest and most result driven facial offered at Burke Williams. The treatment utilizes micro-current technology and infuses our H2V Vitamin C serum deep into the layers of your skin, stimulating collagen production and cell turnover, which provides an immediate lifting of the skin – you can physically see where your face is higher and firmer. It lifts and contours your facial tissue, it’s like doing a bunch of sit-ups for your face. The Radiance Facial is great before a date night, wedding, or during the summer months to rejuvenate and repair your skin from sun damage.
To promote healthy and radiant skin at home, which H2V products are your everyday go-to’s?
I absolutely love and recommend Buff. Everyone should own a good exfoliant, it helps to keep pores clear and brightens and detoxifies skin. The great thing about Buff, is that the bentonite clay base not only helps with detoxifying skin, but it can also be used as a clay mask. Healthy and radiant skin is always at the forefront of my skin care regimen and Triple C is one of the products I use year-round to stimulate collagen, firm skin, and lighten dark spots. The Vitamin C serum contains 3 potent forms of vitamin c and provides a non-photosensitive way to treat dry skin and pigmentation.
