We had a chance to interview Carmen Roberts, the owner of Beautiful Skin by Carmen. Carmen has been in business for 20 years here in the Orlando area and she has won several local awards including back to back best facial winner from 2013-2014 for A-List Orlando and best facial in 2016 from the Orlando family magazine. Below is Carmen’s contact information along with the entire interview.
Q: What Made You Want To Start Beautiful Skin By Carmen?
A: After working in the financial industry for over 30 years and not feeling fulfilled or rewarded, I realized that my passion was in skincare. So, I quit my job, went to school full time and started my own business. Twenty years later, here I am, still being the best of the best, doing something that I am truly passionate about.
Q: How Long Have You Been In Business?
A: Beautiful Skin by Carmen has been established for over 20 years. Initially, I started renting space in a salon, then I expanded to 2 locations and 4 employees. Now, one of the locations is about 5 minutes from Disney and the other one is closer to, borderline Winter Park-Orlando, close to Florida hospital and Princeton street.
Q: What Makes You Stand Out From Competitors?
A: These days, everybody goes to google to search for businesses and they do not make a choice until they do a thorough research of each company. And time and time, we are selected because of our numerous reviews and awards.
Q: What Kind Of Awards Has Your Business Won?
A: Over the years, we have been fortunate to have won over four awards. From 2007 to 2015, we won three awards from the Orlando A list and in 2016 we won the award for best facial from the Orlando Family magazine.
Q: What Do You Like To Do When You’re Not Doing Skincare?
A: I love to exercise. That’s why I got myself a personal trainer, so I can do it the right way. Since I believe in taking care of my skin, I also believe in taking care of my bones and toning up and this is what I tell my clients. You know, you have to take care of the body fully, inside and out and at my age, I’m 68. So I’m going to have to keep this body strong, bones, healthy and look and feel good.
Q: How Did You End Up In Orlando?
A: Well, I am really Jamaican. Although I am a mixture of black and white. I left Jamaica when I was 21, moved to New York. Lived in that cold weather for 22 years, moved to Florida, nice and warm. Love Florida, and I’ve been here for 25 years. I’m married, happily married. I love Florida, I love my life. I love the business that I’m in. I love working with clients. I love to make them look and feel fantastic about their skin.
Q: What Are Some Of Your Favorite Places To Eat In Orlando?
A: My top 2 restaurants, and they are rather close to my home, 10 minutes away, is Flemings and Hillstone. My husband and myself, we love to drink great bottles of wine and we love food. So you can’t go wrong with any of these restaurants. The food is always excellent.
