The celebrity skincare guru on Dallas generosity, road trips and the meaning of life
If socialites and superstars look particularly porcelain and pore-free on the red carpet, rest assured their skin has been in the hands of celebrity aesthetician Renee Rouleau. Having launched her career in Boston at the tender age of 21, Rouleau moved to Dallas for “the nicer weather and friendlier people” in 1996.
Since then, she’s expanded her empire from a single skincare spa into a worldwide clientele, with her award-winning “Personal Skin Prescription” product line solving the problems of every skin type along the way.
With permanent locations in Plano and at One Arts Plaza — plus pop-up shops on both coasts — her tailored regime keeps the faces of Anna Faris, Demi Lovato, Lisa Rinna and Brenda Strong glowing. As the founder of September’s National Skin Care Awareness Month, one would assume world domination would be next on her agenda. But in Rouleau’s case, nothing could be further from the truth.
“I have tons of opportunity for growth, and I say no to a lot of things simply because it’s not in alignment with what my personal goals are,” she explains. “We have a huge cult following, and we’re not as available as we could be, but my goal has always been about skin, not sales.
“The minute I switch my focus to be just about selling I feel like I’m in conflict with what I set up to do, which is help people have healthy skin.”
