Who Is Julie Lindh?
“Beauty is only skin deep” has been the guiding principle behind JL-SkinFitness creator Julie Lindh’s global beauty brand. With a professional background that includes 15 years of industry experience building devoted client followings and leading the creation and marketing of skincare menus at some of New York City’s most accredited high-end day spas, Julie is the innovator and driving force behind some of the most groundbreaking skincare treatments and wellness philosophies of our time.
Today, Julie has established herself as a beauty and skin care expert on an international scale. She credits her Japanese and Swedish background as the inspiration for a disciplined, yet spiritual approach. At a very early age, her Asian upbringing played an instrumental role in developing a balance between spirituality and physical health and well-being. Julie’s grandfather, a well-known healer, introduced her to the power of ancient herbal remedies, while her Swedish father, a physicist, contributed a more clinical perspective on skincare. It was at the age of 15, while living in Sweden, that Julie experienced her first European facial. She knew then that she had just discovered her life’s passion in the field of skincare.
Julie moved to the states in 1997 where she worked diligently toward becoming a professionally licensed medical aesthetician. Upon certification, Julie immersed herself in the culture of some of NYC’s top day spas, taking on the role of Skincare Director, where she not only developed skin care programs, but also led marketing and PR outreach. Her efforts helped to generate coverage in national and international publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, Lucky, Elle, In Style and Conde Nast Traveler.
Responsible for developing all skin care programs and menus at world-class Acqua Beauty Bar and Townhouse Spa, Julie seized the opportunity to introduce her signature approach to skincare. And in 2005, with a highly successful track record and sought after skincare acumen, she was invited to join conceptual Exhale Spa, where she was quickly promoted to the position of National Skin Care Director. In the role, she created the treatment protocol, menu and training program for all locations and, more importantly, helped to transition Exhale Spa from a yoga studio into a chain of luxurious spas and wellness centers.
In 2009, after almost a decade of championing skincare protocol for some of the highest ranked day spas in the industry, Julie set off to launch her own beauty empire. She developed and perfected a four-phased approach to skin care to correct, repair, rejuvenate and preserve skin that is tired, stressed, damaged or prematurely aged. While most skin care therapies focus only on the upper layers of the skin, Julie’s combination of all-natural nutrient and peptide rich ingredients (including plant-based stem cells) work on the upper layers of skin, as well as the deeper muscle foundation. Her skincare approach is an alternative to invasive cosmetic plastic surgery, and is holistic in nature, focusing on professional treatments and at-home products, as well as facial muscle fitness and a nutritionally balanced diet, to help clients achieve and maintain radiant-looking skin.
In 2012, Julie co-founded ABLE (which stands for Art of Beauty, Lifestyle and Energy), a new lifestyle sustainability community developed alongside psychologist/author Fredrik Bengtsson, with the mission to provide the tools, resources and expert guidance to empower others to achieve a sustainable lifestyle through a holistic approach to beauty, health and wellness of the mind, body and soul. ABLE caters not only to personalized beauty and wellness regimens, but also to promoting balance in all aspects of life.
Julie has worked hard to earn the respect and loyalty of her customers. Part of why she works so hard is because she loves what she does, and this commitment shines through in her work.
According to a client ‘she’s not just a skin care expert, but she knows how to soothe the mind and soul as well’. Many of Julie’s devotees refer to her as the “healer” or as their own “personal skincare trainer”, a nod to the remarkable results of her work and the lifestyle practices she teaches.
Julie’s knowledgeable expertise and therapeutic approach to skincare have commanded industry attention and have been instrumental in elevating her to expert status. Though based in New York City and Sweden, Julie often travels the world to cater to her clientele, which includes celebrities, socialites, models and high-end day spas.
