Owner of Organic Escape Skin Studio
Esthetician since 2012
Member of the Nutritional Esthetics Alliance
Hi, my name is Andrea Sellner. I graduated from the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis in 2011, receiving my license in Esthiology. My additional education includes an Associates Degree in Fine Arts from Lake Superior College and a multi-media makeup certification from Faces-Etc of Minnesota. My years of practice include extensive training and treating clients with Eminence Organic Skin Care, Dermalogica, Aveda, Glo Therapeutics and Apotheque Rx. My most recent favorite skincare skin is Apoterra which I use in my holistic 90 minute facial. I moved to California in 2015 to explore more opportunities and education in the skin care industry. My holistic approach to skin care is unique and I'm passionate about providing an exceptional spa experience. I opened Organic Escape Skin Studio in 2016 to offer relaxing and healing skincare treatments. After 6 year of business in San Diego, I recently moved back to Minnesota to share my wealth of knowledge.
Being an esthetician wasn’t in my plans until about 6 months before I attended school. After high school, I attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth as an art major. I quickly sunk into the pressures of college. Bad habits consumed my life and my grades. I became very unhappy as I packed on weight from non-stop junk food and partying. After a year and a half of toxic behaviors, I knew things needed to change. Within six months I finished my two year degree at Lake Superior College, then moved to Minneapolis attend the Aveda Institute to be an esthetician. I cleaned up my habits and regained my health and vitality. I fell in love with skin care and am so blessed to have truly found my art that I can offer to people in need of healing. Since then I have been exploring and learning all that this industry has to offer. After personally going through acne as a teenager (using anti-biotics, Differen, Clearasil, and Proactive) and an extreme phase of cystic acne at the age of 22, I believe in healing the skin internally and externally. Thanks to acupuncture and Eminence Organic Skin Care, my skin healed beautifully and naturally. Let me share my passion and love for skin care with you!
