About Charlene Handel & Donna Sly- Certified Holistic Estheticians

Charlene Handel, Owner of Skin Fitness EtcCharlene began her career in the beauty industry as a Cosmetologist in 1984; licensed in skin, hair, and nail care.  She immediately established her own business.  Because of her passion and drive to offer the very best to her clients who include men, women, and teens; she has aligned herself with the top holistic skin care professionals and product manufacturers from around the world.  Her office is a safe procedural atmosphere to ensure her clients the most sanitary conditions that meet the State Board of Cosmetology requirements, as well as complete confidentiality of their services, and personal written information.


As a Certified Holistic Esthetician and Educator, her desire is to impart only holistic skin care treatments within her practice, as well as the products she chooses to sell to her clients.  She “feeds” the skin, which is the largest organ of the body, only pure organic vitamins, minerals, fruits, veggies, plant, and ocean extracts.  She uses products and state-of-the-art technology that will repair the skin’s layers by providing “only essential nutrients” to stimulate and maximize the skin’s health.

Charlene takes her business one step beyond ‘organic’ to the level of ‘holistic’.  Charlene’s motto is:

“The skin, your protective organ, is meant to be “worn” for life.  It is not a luxury but a necessity to take the best possible care of it.”


“When I first started seeing Charlene I was at home for a visit from Boston.  From then on I made a point of seeing Charlene whenever I was home.  Now that I live in Southern California I drive 80 miles one way for a facial once a month…MY SKIN LOOKS FANTASTIC!”
