Diane Young pioneered the concept of holistic beauty in 1982 when she opened her skin-care salon in New York City. Hers was the first salon in the country to combine beauty treatments and products with the services of a nutritionist, dermatologist and plastic surgeon. She believed then, as she does now, that to improve skin it must be cared for on the inside as well as the outside.
Young studied advanced skin care at the Bretlands Beauty Institute at Royal Turnbridge in Wells, England, attended the Christian Chauveau Makeup Institute in Paris, and completed the Elizabeth Jones Aromatherapy Program in Vienna. She has been named by Harper's Bazaar as one of the four top beauty experts in the world, and by a leading trade publication as a living legend in skin care. She has appeared on many top television shows including the "Oprah Winfrey Show."
