Healthy skin is beautiful, and this is what Paula Provenzano, owner of Proven Skin and Body, lives out in all she does. And she does quite a bit.

 

She's a licensed aesthetician, massage therapist and makeup artist, and under those titles she boasts several different certifications and specialties. But no matter what it is she is doing, she strives to help women and men solve health problems to bring out their natural beauty. That is why she was nominated and voted as Cincy Chic's 2010 Beauty Woman of the Year.

 

Provenzano started her own business two years ago, and she offers everything from facials and chemical peels to laser treatments. While she also provides makeup applications, she works with clients to solve problems they use makeup to try to conceal. "I can show you a makeup that can conceal [your problem], but how about we just fix it instead," she says.

 

Part of her living out her goal for natural beauty is in her work at A Woman's Touch Plastic Surgery Group. Many breast cancer patients go to A Woman's Touch for breast reconstruction after a mastectomy, and Provenzano helps restore the natural look by tattooing a nipple onto the breast.

 

When it comes to breast cancer, Provenzano also works to raise awareness and support local breast-cancer focused nonprofits. "To see these women and speak with them individually and hear their stories and their challenges that they've had with breast cancer, it really changed me," she says, so every year she runs various promotions and donates a part of her profits from both her treatment and product sales.

 

She also turns these promotions into awareness opportunities by structuring her promotions around breast cancer statistics. "Twelve percent of women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer, so I gave 12 percent of my profits from treatment to the Susan G. Komen, and then I took another statistic, 75 percent of women who develop breast cancer have no family history of the disease, and I gave 75 percent of product sales," Provenzano says.

 

For a much broader approach to helping people, Provenzano offers Fox 19 viewers beauty industry insight every other Thursday on her "Love Your Look" segment. In her contributions, Provenzano covers everything from serious topics like breast reconstruction to more light-hearted topics like the newest gadgets and gizmos in the beauty industry.
