Welcome to my new online home and the rebranding of Layers Skin. Whilst my website is undergoing a slick little make-over, I wanted to introduce you to the expansion of my brand and service offering.

So why the change?

Layers The Skin Expert | Qualified Somatologist | Cape Town

The Skin Expert

Nicola du Toit

Qualified Somatologist

Backed by science and over 11 years of experience in the industry, allow me to guide you on your skincare journey, helping you combat imperfection, feel less overwhelmed and improve overall skin health.

With the rapid evolution of skincare and science, I can completely understand if you feel…

  • Like you need trustworthy advice on what skincare regime is best suited for you
  • Wanting more knowledge of what supplements and dosage would be most beneficial to your skin type
  • How to identify which cosmeceutical products and treatments are marketing fads and which can genuinely help you see results
  • Inundated with the over-saturated market constantly being updated by new products, treatments and supplements
  • And simply seeking expert guidance of the different combinations of ingredients and formulations

So what’s new…

After specialising as a Somotologist for over a decade, I wanted to continue to stay at the forefront of the industry, offering bespoke non-biased one of a-kind consultations to my clients situated all over the world.

I am incredibly passionate about holistic health and believe that your skin is a true reflection of your wellbeing.

Work with me…

At Layers, I am passionate about your skin and see your skin as a complete reflection of your wellbeing. Your skin is so much more than what we see on the surface, it’s a full expression of your health, your diet, your lifestyle and even your mind and emotions. It is a beautiful embodiment of your unique life story. And this is why I take a layered approach to skincare:

●      I connect with you one-on-one, listen to your concerns, challenges and goals.

●      I then draw from my years of expertise as well as the latest skincare research and innovations and identify underlying problems.

●      I consider all aspects of your life and develop a custom guide and treatment plan that targets each one of your skin concerns and helps you to achieve your skin goals.

●      My approach is personal, passionate and tailored. Because I believe, your skin, like you, is beautifully unique.

The fact that Nicola’s online consultations included a full lifestyle and skin analysis before offering a treatment plan, was unheard of in my books and exactly what I needed. I no longer had to stumble along blindly through the dark, confused by all the information and options out there. It meant that I could consively work according to a plan, not spending unnecessary money on unnecessary products.

My skin has never felt or looked better, and I love that we have a constant plan to work towards.

As a medium/dark skin tone girl I’m very impressed with how my pigmentation struggles are now resolved and that I have the understanding and knowledge on what preventative measures to take.

Smooth, clear, glowing & overall healthy skin, allowing me to wear minimal makeup… It’s the best investment that I have made, a skin-vestment. I love that Nicola had been so thorough from my 1st appointment with her and every appointment thereafter. She explains every detail as to why she does a certain treatment and how it works. She also tailored my at home skincare regime and always takes my budget into consideration.
