Skincare = self-care.
This mantra is the foundation of The Complexion Companion, a collection of sweet and simple skincare tips amassed by Maggie Miley Kelly in her decades-long career as an esthetician and holistic health coach. Maggie has worked with thousands of clients to improve, heal, and clear their complexions of acne, scarring, and signs of premature aging. But equally important are those less visible signs of wellness: a better self-image, a healthier definition of beauty, and consistent daily home skincare.
Inside, Maggie breaks down what you really need to know about caring for your skin at home, from understanding how to read product ingredients labels to debunking prevalent skincare myths. Let her holistic expertise guide you in treating your inflammatory skin conditions, aging amazingly, breaking your worst skincare habits, and more. Let Maggie navigate you through the intricate world of skincare with The Complexion Companion, your new skincare essential.
Maggie Miley Kelly is an advanced practice licensed esthetician, registered yoga and meditation instructor, energy healer and holistic health coach, entrepreneur, educator, writer, reader, dancer, and dreamer. After more than two decades of building a career in skincare treatments, product and equipment sales, and education, Maggie longed to settle into her own space and create a business based on all the things she really believed in and valued about the skincare industry.
In 2012, Maggie opened Complexions On Carter Skincare Boutique, a small skincare spa in St. Paul, Minnesota, with a focus on healing adolescent to adult acne and amazing aging (her preferred term, rather than the discouraging and unrealistic term “anti-aging”). In 2019, she added more space to host groups for meditation, sound bath healing, and skincare classes.
As word got around, Maggie began to realize there was no shortage of people seeking what she was offering: skincare treatments and education that focused on the whole self, and a holistic approach that addressed nutrition, stress levels, hormonal factors, lifestyle and habits, as well as topical products and ingredients. The Complexion Companion is her first book, based on her clients’ most frequently asked questions and conversations.
