Meet the Expert JoLyn A. Gibb, R.N., B.S.N. at Murad (2014)
An incredibly talented skincare professional joined the Murad team this year. She’s JoLyn Gibb, a registered nurse and expert in the field of aesthetic medicine. She was hand-picked by Dr. Murad to lead our new Medical Aesthetic Services at the Murad Inclusive Health Spa. The spa just started offering these new services in mid-June. JoLyn is considered the “go-to” aesthetic nurse for other doctors and nurses in the industry, and we’re very excited that she’s now part of the Murad team.
Why and how did you get into the field of aesthetic medicine?
In my teens, I had a passion for stage and theatrical makeup. I dreamed of becoming a special effects makeup artist. I received a scholarship for special effects from a school in New York. But my father said I would need to obtain my degree from a local University before flying off to New York. Truly, I believe he thought New York was too far for his heart to handle since I am the youngest of four and the only girl. Fast forward through my rotations in ICU, ER, Open Heart Recovery, and ER Flight Nursing (over a six year time frame), and I relocated to Los Angeles after accepting a medical sales position with 3M (Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company) in 2000. My call point for 3M was dermatologists and plastic surgeons, which led me to the world of aesthetic medicine. Soon, I was able to combine by passion for special effects art and rejuvenation in the field of aesthetic medicine. My ability to look at a face and know what needs to be done—and see the end result in my mind’s eye before I’ve even started—is a rare gift and my best asset.
What is your favorite Murad product and why?
Prior to meeting Dr. Murad, and receiving a personal invitation to join the Murad team in 2014, I’d been using Intensive Wrinkle Reducer for Face and Eyes for many years. My choices are based on thorough research of ingredients. Any Murad product containing Vitamin A, C and E—plus Beta-Carotene—are absolute necessities. The health of our skin, at a cellular level, is completely dependent on these ingredients to grow healthy new skin cells every 30 days. But, the Intensive Wrinkle Reducer has an ingredient specific to smoothing and exfoliating the skin without irritation, thanks to an amazing natural ingredient from the durian tree. The durian tree looks regal and majestic, befitting its royal title as “King of Fruits.” I would go as far to say Intensive Wrinkle Reducer for Face and Eyes is the “King of Facial Products!”
Have you experienced personal, career or client transformation? If so – please share.
Personal transformation: In 2008 I decided to “Get My Sexy Back.” As women, I believe 99% of us at some point in life just feel like the internal/external spark is gone. Creating my personal definition of sexy for me, and writing out how I was going to get it back, was a challenging yet fun journey. I am happy to say by the end of 2008 I got my “sexy back” and it’s now part of me every day.
How do you embrace the Murad Vision; Look, Live and Feel Better Every Day?
How do you LOOK BETTER?
Being a busy Momma with a two year old can be a challenge for looking “make up ready” every day. I’ve simplified my skin care routine to cleansing, vitamizing with Environ, moisturizing and using a tinted SPF by Two Tone Umbrella.
How do you LIVE BETTER?
My fitness level has changed since having a child. Now playing on the big soccer field in the park with my two year old girl every evening is my workout. Chasing each other, kicking the ball, rolling in the grass, lying on our backs and stetting our legs towards the sky… pointing at airplanes flying by… best workout for my body and soul.
How do you FEEL BETTER?
My philosophy for feeling better every day is KINDNESS . This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain… our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness. ALTRUISM. You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want. BUILD A GREAT-MIND. Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.
What is your favorite Dr. Murad insight?
“Be imperfect, live longer.”
If you weren’t at work, what would you be doing?
Bike riding with my little girl in her kiddie seat, walking our two dogs: black lab and boxer, or sitting on the deck enjoying the outdoor evening breeze off the Pacific with my husband.
What advice do you have for women who fear getting older?
Turn off the negative voice inside your head. It is not your friend. Every time you think negatively about yourself, instantly respond with a positive thought.
