Meet AACDS Graduate Yadira Galarza Cauchi

"I have forever loved all things health/wellness and originally started my career as a beauty journalist. Prior to that I'd never really delved into the science behind the world of skincare. However, after interviewing expert after expert, I soon realised beauty and health were so inexorably linked and I fell in love with beauty - quickly. Fast forward two kids later, I knew writing from home was getting harder by the day and I wanted to work with the practical side of skin. I started researching and chatting to people in the Cosmetic Dermal Science course at AACDS, which now is one of the best decisions I ever made!

Today, I continue to write about beauty and chat about skin health via my Instagram @yadscauchi, although I'm employed as a Dermal Therapist with Artisan Clinics in Canberra too. I love the sense of balance that working both in clinic and at home as provided to my work/life juggle as a mum and would recommend jumping into the skin/beauty industry to anybody who is passionate about it. Plus, it's so rewarding knowing you can improve somebody's self-confidence with the work you do everyday.

It's also fuelled me to up skill and pursue post-graduate studies in human nutrition - because there's so much more to skincare than the products we put on our skin. It's about what's happening internally as well and I can't wait to explore the two together!"
