About Isabelle Bellis
US Vogue recently proclamed her the beauty insider’s secret. Facialist to makup artists Tom Pecheux, Gucci Westman and photographer Steven Meisel, French-born Isabelle Bellis has a passion for wellness and a deep understanding of the complexity of the skin. She was trained in France, Switzerland and Germany and has acquired the best treatment techniques with world-renowned skin biologists and naturopaths.
Bellis was trained by Joelle Ciocco, a world-renowned biochemist with 35 years of experience in the field of personalized skin care and taught her the Epidermologue Method ® that is based on a scientific analysis of the skin which is premised on the fact that everyone’s skin has its own genetic history, life and oxidative stresses.
To further develop her understanding of skin and its relation to other internal/external factors, Bellis studied vitamins, olio-elements and holistic nutrition in Canada and the new approach of nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City, presided over by Joshua Rosenthal.
Inspired by the teachings of esteemed speakers such as Michio Kushi, David Wolfe, Eric Schlosser and Dr Andrew Weil, Bellis became a health counselor certified by Columbia University, integrating her learning on outer beauty with the inner workings of the body, cultivating the connection between internal nourishment and its influence on the external layers of the skin.
This is the important knowledge that she shares with her clients.
