    Women of the South Bay

Erin Ennis has been a licensed esthetician since 2004. She opened Skin Topic Skincare in 2010 to offer clients targeted, results-oriented skin care backed by science and delivered therapeutically. The business is an authorized retailer of Éminence Organic Skin Care products and offers services such as facials and waxing, plus red and blue LED light therapy.

Why did you go into this career field?

We all have experienced various roadblocks in our lives. Adapting to change has been my biggest tool navigating my journey. I started out in life as a dancer. I had some unfortunate injuries in other activities that required three knee surgeries, two back surgeries and even a broken elbow. This derailed me from the path of professional dancing.

When I was in college pursuing a degree in fashion merchandising, my mother tragically and suddenly passed away. While I was coping with her loss, I gravitated toward wellness. Having grown up struggling with cystic acne for most of my teen and young adult years, I turned my focus to skin care and became a licensed esthetician. I discovered that skin care and helping others is my life’s passion!

I am 45 and really proud of my innate perseverance and accomplishments thus far. I am happy with my dramatically improved skin, my health, my thriving skin care business that is going on year 12 (voted the South Bay’s BEST Skin Care in 2021 and 2022 in the Daily Breeze’s Readers’ Choice Awards) and my ability to use my experience and expertise daily to help my clients achieve their goals. 

How do you ensure that your business is successful?

My facial services are more than just skin care. A client’s concerns with their skin may be what initially brings them in, but I offer more value with my services beyond just a great moisturizer. Wellness of body and mind are so important, and this is the environment that I strive to create. During a service, the client can decompress so their body can reset and align from within and they can better receive the benefits of my treatment and therefore obtain optimal results. At Skin Topic Skincare, the best foundation you can wear is healthy, glowing skin!

Tell us your favorite quote.

“If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life.” I am so grateful for the ups and downs that ultimately led me to realize that wellness is my purpose in life! I get to live my life’s passion every day as an esthetician. I consider myself very lucky!

Tell us about a few of your passions.

Dancing; I still take a class once a week. I love the ocean and enjoy staying healthy, mentally and physically. I am blessed to be able to live and work in the South Bay!
