About Christen

christen_michel_halo5I was only 5 years old when I started creating skincare products from ingredients I found in the kitchen and on my mother’s vanity. At age 6 I tried to sell homemade mud masks to neighbors. Needless to say, these products were not a huge success! I have been obsessed with skincare and beauty my entire life. After receiving my Bachelor’s degree at the University of Missouri-Columbia, I decided I really needed to follow my dream. I attended The Skin Institute in St. Louis, MO and became a licensed Esthetician.

How it started

I noticed over the years as an Esthetician at a medical spa, the complaint that I kept hearing over and over by busy, active women was “I just feel like I’m lacking that ‘glow’, I look tired even when I’m not.”

I noticed these particular clients had textural issues and were lacking plump, hydrated skin. Their skin often felt rough & deflated. I would put them on a home routine that would consist of 4 important steps, which I started calling my Glow Philosophy. They would all return to me with improved texture, hydration, and GLOW! I also kept track of which products/ingredients were being used and found common denominators.

In comes… Christen Michel Cosmetics & my blend of hyaluronic acid, jojoba seed oil, apricot oil, and antioxidants.

I’m excited to be YOUR skin health expert. Please know…
