There’s no size that fits all in skincare. This is precisely why I perform treatments and offer recommendations only after thorough investigation regarding skin concerns, habits, medical history, diet, and lifestyle.

I firmly believe that proper skin care goes beyond physical beauty, and a healthy, glowing complexion is a fundamental component and indicator of well-being.

When I suffered from a severe episode of eczema as a child, I was forced to miss several months of school due to being in excruciating pain. To help my symptoms subside, under the recommendation of my dermatologist, I began regularly applying oils and lotions, and fervently avoided skin irritants. This was the beginning of my first skincare regimen and I never again had another eczema outbreak.
From that time onward, I started to recognize the immense importance of caring for the largest organ of the body, the skin. This set in motion my practice of cosmetic chemistry. I began formulating and creating simple balms, and that eventually evolved into more complex cosmetics. My growing fascination with skincare inspired me to enroll in the Esthetics program at the Academy of Beauty in Culver City, California. Here, I learned the the art and science of treating the skin and delivering desired results.
After I became a licensed esthetician, I was offered a position of nighttime instructor at the Academy of Beauty, which I gladly accepted. My time at the Academy granted me the extraordinary privilege to inspire and educate aspiring estheticians. This was a two-way experience as I was constantly inspired and educated by my students. During my tenure I opened my skin spa, which became an instant success.
My skin spa allowed me to resign from my instructor position to focus solely on my business and clients. After the pandemic hit, I had to close my spa temporarily but my determination empowered me to create and release a skincare line, Charles McKnight Skincare, in 2020. Now, I am excited to reopen my spa and support my clients in accomplishing their skincare goals.
