Part of Dr. Murad’s Inclusive Health philosophy is making sure you take care of YOU by carving out enough “me time” in your busy schedule. One person who knows what a huge difference “me time” makes is Murad esthetician Nicola Gamboa. She’s been a professional esthetician for over 25 years and we’re lucky to have her as part of our team at the Murad Inclusive Health Spa.
What do you do as a Murad esthetician?
As a Murad esthetician I focus on address my clients’ skincare needs and on educating them about Dr. Murad’s Inclusive Health vision and how important living Inclusively is to achieving great results.
How did you join Murad and how long have you been here?
I met Dr. Murad on a cruise ship where I gave him a facial and massage. He said to look him up when I was in California. That was 20 years ago.
What do you love most about working at Murad?
Seeing the results in my clients. It is my face they see on a monthly basis so having a product and philosophy to help them be beautiful and healthy outside and inside is important. I really enjoy making an emotional connection and it feels great to be using cutting edge ingredients.
How do you embrace the Murad Inclusive Health Vision of Looking, Living and Feeling #BetterEveryDay?
How do you LOOK BETTER?
I try as best I can to eat my water daily, do things that make me feel good and embrace my inner child. I take my Murad vitamins and do my skincare regimen—steps 1, 2 and 3, twice daily.
How do you LIVE BETTER?
I work out to the best of my ability. I’ve done 15 half marathons and 4 full marathons in the last four years! I stay hydrated by eating my water and I follow a balanced diet.
How do you FEEL BETTER?
Doing yoga at least once a week, meditating, breathing exercises, getting my nails done, massages and facials.
What is your favorite Dr. Murad Insight?
“Why have a bad day when you can have a good day.”
If you weren’t at work, what would you be doing?
Living life to the fullest: running, Zumba, yoga, hiking and spending time with my family.
What is your favorite/must-have Murad product and why?
Sheer Lustre Day Moisturizer and my Essential-C SPF 30 always keep me protected and hydrated.
Any additional comments or stories you’d like to share about your life with Murad?
One time I went on a 7 mile hike with Dr. Murad and a friend and I showed up with my camel pack filled with water and a protein bar. I asked Dr. Murad where his water was and he replied, “I ate my water today, did you?” I learned my lesson!
