The average life span of any type of salon is pretty short. So it takes some pretty savvy business smarts to have a successful skin care salon.

Justin interviews Elizabeth Burr, owner of the very successful skin care salon, Elizabeth Skin Care in Studio City, California.

Elizabeth has been in business for almost 20 years and has loved every minute. But she started her business out of very unique needs.

"I was a successful actress for many years until I developed adult onset acne while on a soap opera. Having acne is humiliating enough, but going through it on TV with producers and fans was devastating. 

Despite the efforts of several doctors, nothing cleared my skin until an esthetician treated me.  She gave me a series of peels in her salon and changed my home care routine. I was embarrassed about my appearance before she cleared me up. And when she did, it changed my life. Once my skin was clear again I said, “I want to do this!” Since then I have been happy educating myself and my clients as we practice great skin care together."
