Erica DeHoyos, Esthetician, San Diego

Meet Erica

My skin problems started with teen acne. Every morning I would cake on a thick layer of foundation to cover the redness and bumps. One morning, while we vacationed in Santa Barbara, my mom found an ad in a local paper for an esthetician and booked me an appointment. For months, she'd drive me 2 hours every weekend for skin treatments. And just like that I had started my skin care journey. After strict home care regimens and lifestyle changes, I finally had the clear beautiful skin I always wanted.

Fast forward to being a young woman in my 30's with a passion for all thing’s skincare and various admin jobs I decided to seek getting my license in one of the most rewarding careers ever and become an esthetician.

After a couple years working in a boutique spa in San Diego, where I learned to perfect my brazilian waxing skills, I pursued my dream and opened Apotheke Skin Studio in 2015. I enjoy passing on my endless knowledge and passion for skin care along with cutting edge treatments to women and men, yes men need skincare too, to help them find confidence and love the skin they’re in.

When I am not creating the perfect skin cocktail you can find me working out with my stroller stride moms, doing laps at the zoo, or under an endless pile of laundry. 

My top 3 skincare must haves are Code of Harmony's 40 winks Eye  Serum, Collagen Cream, and Glo Berry Skin oil.

My favorite service is Microcurrent! I love that this treatment can be performed on almost anyone and can help delay certain invasive cosmetic procedures.
