Why did we start Skin In Motion?
Gia is a London based celebrity and fashion makeup artist for clients including Hollywood actors and many fashion brands.
She is also a super keen marathon, yoga, adventure racing, cycling and dragon boating enthusiast.
When she heard that 75% of women are put off exercise for fear of being judged over their appearance* she wanted to change that. (*Sport England Survey)
Utilising her expertise and know how in makeup and skincare, as well as understanding the therapeutic benefits of exercise both physically and mentally, Gia and the wonderful team set to work on creating Skin In Motion.
When Sophia Lahlou, a marketing professional with an illustrious 17 years at Unilever running £1bn beauty brands, joined the team, nothing could stop them from making the dream and purpose a reality.
At Skin In Motion we want to empower you gorgeous women to put on your pink leg warmers and book that spin class.
