“People told me my dreams were impossible. I didn’t take it personally. I found a way to defy impossible.” - Kate Somerville
Kate Somerville’s lifelong journey is one of defying expectations, never giving up, and never accepting impossible. Her empathy and passion for helping others grew out of a tumultuous childhood. Growing up, Kate’s family was rocked by her mom’s dependence on alcohol. She left Kate with her dad when she was just nine. The instability Kate felt on the inside showed up on the outside in the form of painful eczema.
From a very early age, Kate understood
what it was like not to feel comfortable in her own skin.
In high school, Kate left home, sleeping on friends’ couches. This fueled a fierce determination to succeed. While working three jobs to put herself through college, Kate found a mentor Barbara who taught her the value of unconditional support and believing in yourself.
Having a helping hand set Kate on an accelerated path to success.
She enrolled in esthetician school and got the idea to use active ingredients to help patients heal more quickly after cosmetic surgery. Soon, she opened an esthetics clinic inside one of the country’s top cosmetic surgery offices. Celebrity clients quickly fell in love with Kate’s post-procedure care and began booking esthetics appointments with her.
In 2004, Kate opened her first Skin Health Experts Clinic in the heart of Hollywood.
Kate and her team built protocols for every age, ethnicity and skin type, giving hope to those who couldn’t find solutions anywhere else. Word quickly spread through the entertainment industry. Soon, the world’s most famous and photographed faces came knocking. So did the media.
In 2005, one of Kate’s celebrity clients asked her to bottle her clinic super facial so she could take it on location while filming under harsh lights.
Kate’s holy grail product, ExfoliKate® Intensive, was born. Today, her clinically perfected luxurious formulas are sold all over the world. Kate continues reaching for new career heights while looking for opportunities to give back. She’s passionate about helping others who – like her – come from humble beginnings, have faced unimaginable setbacks, and are determined to chase their dreams and defy impossible odds.
