Her mission for BEAUTIFUL YOU SKINCARE STUDIO is to earn Client TRUST by sharing our knowledge, skills and expertise in a clean, compassionate and welcoming environment to all guests, while keeping up with the highest safety and sanitation industry standards, and perform the highest quality skincare & esthetic services in town!

A little bit about her....Desarae was born and raised in Pueblo. She is the happy wife of 16 years to John Marhofer & the proud Mother to her 4 beautiful children, Miranda(16), Myles(10), Mia(6) & Maxton(1).

Desarae received her Colorado Esthetician License in November, 2005. After 3 years of working for a local Hair Salon, Desarae felt Pueblo was lacking a quality skin care/esthetics facility. At that point she decided to pursue her dreams of opening up an exclusive skin care/esthetics studio in Pueblo, CO. & on March 13th, 2009 Beautiful You Skincare Studio was born. Desarae's passion for Esthetics shows through in the results and successes her clients have seen since the very beginning. Seeing the huge demand in Esthetics at that time she decided to hire her first employee in July 2010. Since then Beautiful You Skincare Studio has expanded 4 times to accommodate the growing need in Pueblo for high quality skin care and she has been a true pioneer in helping to grow and develop new Colorado Estheticians in the industry. Creating future Esthetician Entrepreneurs is one of the many things she is proud of.

Desarae and her Esthetic team regularly attend Industry trade shows, advanced skincare, makeup and waxing classes, as well as frequent skincare & beauty seminars & online webinars. Beautiful You is truly dedicated to staying in touch with today's most current treatments, techniques and trends that are so relative to the skincare/esthetics & beauty industry. Beautiful You's skincare philosophy is simple, its "CLEAN, HEALTHY, BEAUTIFUL." and this is exactly the kind of service you can expect from Beautiful You Skincare Studio!

Desarae is a member of the Pueblo, Co Intelitec Cosmotolgy School Board, Pueblo Community College Cosmetology Advisory Board Member, & International Salon & Spa Academy (Colo. Springs, CO) Advisory Board Member, Associated Skin Care Professionals, National Coalition of Estheticians, and Aesthetics International Association.

"Esthetics is my passion, and helping clients discover their own unique beauty & learn to practice self love is my mission. My number one goal in my business is to earn your TRUST, and to create a caring and compassionate environment where we can ensure that your beauty needs are being met to your satisfaction.
