Hello! Thank you for visiting Sanctuary. I’m Amy, Licensed Esthetician and Owner of Sanctuary Big Sky. I’ve been providing skin care services to my Big Sky community & visitors for the past 4 years at various wellness centers and spas in the area and am thrilled to welcome you to my vision of a skincare boutique.
I grew up in the 90s so my skincare lineup contained all the familiar-to-the-era staples: Noxema, St. Ives Apricot Scrub, Oil of Olay moisturizer, Sea & Ski SPF8 and the revolutionary blackhead pore strips. Thankfully I have good genes and a mother who took me to get the occasional blackhead busting facial and better products. I’ll credit her with telling me the importance of remembering the neck when applying products and to pat my skin dry. Thanks, Mom 🙂 How I got from there to becoming an esthetician at age forty is a story filled with various jobs and employers, a husband of 18 years, and two beautiful children.
My approach to skincare now is less is more. Quality ingredients, used consistently, can produce healthy, youthful looking skin. So does a healthy lifestyle! Diet, hydration, exercise and stress (all the usual suspects) play vital roles in how healthy your skin looks and feels. I focus on protecting and nourishing your skin rather than fixing any perceived flaws. Tackling issues like acne, bacne, dark spots, and texture with a solid plan to meet you where you’re at.
Big Sky has been my home for the past twenty years. Besides the awe-inspiring scenery, there is an incredible community of people here that I’m proud to call friends and neighbors. Having the opportunity to connect with faces new and old (relationship, not age!!) is a privilege I won’t soon take for granted. I hope to see you soon!
