5-Minute Beauty Confessions with Nicky Thompson

This week we speak to #WonderfulWoman Nicky Thompson, Owner of Fourways, Honeydew, Northcliff and Bryanston Baby and Family Clinics.

Apart from being both a founder and owner of various baby and family clinics, Nicky is also a clinic sister.

Today she shares her 5-Minute Beauty Confessions with The Beauty Studio Team.

1.What does beauty mean to you?

Beauty is being able to see someone has a good spirit, a good heart , not just physically, but they’re kind, and you can see smile lines in their face. Someone who takes the time to take care of themselves and others.

2.What’s one of the best beauty products you’ve ever used and why?

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair – I’ve used this for 20 years and no one believes my age because I have no wrinkles.

3.How has COVID and lockdown affected your beauty regime ?

To be honest? It hasn’t – other than having my nails done less frequently, as I don’t usually have time for facials (but I would have been hesitant before being vaccinated!)

4.What’s your biggest strength?


5.What’s a cause that is important to you?

Vaccinations, not only covid but childhood immunisation to halt vaccine-preventable diseases and to assist with the WHO goals to reduce childhood mortality by 2030.

6.What are the 3 things you can’t live without?

Wine, coffee and my cats.

7.How would you define yourself in three words?

Strong, passionate and hard-working.

8.What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

My husband told me to take a leap of faith and start my clinic, leaving a salaried position. I didn’t see myself as a business person and was terrified, but now I have 4 clinics and have never looked back.

9.What’s the last bit of self-care you performed?

I had my nails done and a BBL facial recently!

10.What does a successful 2021 look like to you?

I can’t believe 2021 is almost over, but having opened my fourth clinic and sustaining the other three, having my family healthy and safe and taking a break in December!
