We had the good fortune of connecting with Robin Ashley and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Robin, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
Be Fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.
The things that ignite our souls, that move us, take our breath away, consume our minds….are not by chance. If it moves you, chase it.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
When your deepest passion is also your profession, it is truly such a gift.
This is what Aesthetics is for me, and I’m grateful to have 15 amazing years in this industry, specializing in facial rejuvenation and corrective treatments, while working alongside Industry Leaders and Top Plastic Surgeons. But my approach to skincare started to evolve, as I evolved as a woman.
My life journey has taken me down three very beautiful paths. Pillars, I believe, that have supported my soul’s purpose, so aside from being a Facialist, my heart has also led me to become a Reiki Master and Certified Yoga Instructor. My intention is to intricately weave these philosophies, teaching, and practices into my treatments. I strive not only to create physical beauty but to restore wholeness and balance within the mind, body and spirit, high vibrational experiences. Traditionally, in a spa setting, you have one or the other. Medical Spa, or Holistic. I think the magic is in the marriage of the two.
With SkinrxDallas, I created what I craved. Results driven, luxury skincare.
My collection of bespoke treatments seamlessly integrated modern science, luxury and a hint of zen. My mission is to influence skin health and evoke an atmosphere of self-love. I specialize in non-invasive beauty treatments to enhance skin health on a cellular level. Sculpting Facial Massage,Buccal Massage, Facial Lymphatic Drainage, Facial Cupping, Microcurrent, Microneedling. DMK Enzyme Therapy. Think: biohacking beauty, very avant-garde.
Beauty has depth. It’s not a look, but a feeling.I don’t just want to scratch the surface. I want to create a place of alchemy. A sacred space for transformation, healing or at the very least…. rest. because we all deserve it. Self-care creates self-love. Within my treatments, science and nature, therapy and mystery, beauty and peace are intertwined, offering an experience as luxurious as it is therapeutic and as magical as it is real.
My journey to “success” was anything but a smooth road.
Smooth roads rarely ever make good drivers. Struggles are failures are necessary for growth, and I’ve definitely had my fair share. That’s where you learn your most valuable lessons. You get tested the most, when its time for you to elevate. Nobody achieves great success without walking through fire. I think my biggest challenges have inadvertently highlighted the fact that I needed to be in full control of how I perform my treatments, and ultimately lead me to become my own boss. This is my art. Never try and fit a mold that someone else has created for you. Hone in on the skill sets and traits that make you unique. People are attracted to authenticity. Own your craft and own your style of how you practice your art.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc. In your view what are some of the most fun, interesting, exciting people, places or things to check out?
We all have friends that fill a certain need in our lives. Im definitely the “low key, spa, “let chill and zen out” type of friend. So my itinerary would most definitely reflect that.
Spa day at the Joule
Pilates at One Lagree
Ozone Sauna sessions at Ohzone Clinic
Matcha Latte at La La Land Cafe
Lunch at Sweet Greet in West Village, I have an unhealthy obsession with the spicy cashew dressing
Hot Yoga at True Fusion
Soundbath meditation class at Breathe Meditation and Wellness
Dinner at Doce Mesas: they make a mean spicy marg
Drinks at Catbird, then home by 10…because beauty sleep is the secret to looking young. I tend to date younger men so this is crucial for me ; )
Im still “newish” to Dallas so I’m sure there are gems in this city I have yet to uncover
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
For me, this was an experience.
A solo travel trip to Costa Rica, for an immersive yoga teacher training. A month off the grid, disconnecting to reconnect. Life happens fast, and there is always a lot of outside noise. This trip gifted me the chance to pause, slow down in ways I hadn’t before. Be fully present, within my body, my spirit and my mind. It helped me redefine what “success” meant to me. It’s paramount to get clarity on what brings you joy. Then create your life accordingly.
