Episode 6 - Cigdem Kemal Yilmaz on running an online business from a remote location and scientific skincare education

Episode 6 of The Pro Beauty Pod is out now!! This week deputy editor Kezia Parkins spoke to the amazing Cigdem Kemal Yilmaz, a chemical engineer and founder of the CPD-accredited course Skin Masterclass Pro

We spoke to Cigdem about her fascinating journey to founding Skin Masterclass Pro and how the cult brand The Ordinary opened doors to making people more interested in learning about skincare and active ingredients. 

We chatted about her experience being an expat in Malaysia and the pros and cons of setting up and running a business away from home. She also offers tips on getting going as an educator no matter what industry you are in and her favourite avenues for marketing her services.
