New Zealand Corneotherapy Institute is focused on holistic wellbeing. We love the natural beauty of human skin, and recognise it as part of whole self wellness.
Our mission is to use our holistic approach to skincare and knowledge as tools to increase the health and happiness of people around New Zealand.
Empowering every body
Everyone has the right to knowledge about their body — the knowledge to understand how your own body functions and how to improve your overall health thus leading to better skin.
No More Airbrushed Skin
Healthy skin not seamless, airbrushed skin. Trying to attain ‘perfect skin’ can lead to mental distress, misuse of products and overspending.
Lin (BA Hons, PGDipBus, BSc, Dip Beauty Therapy) is a New Zealand multi-award winning skin therapist and a self-proclaimed geek. Her approach to health goes far beyond the superficial, diving deep into analysing you as an individual.
From diet and emotion to detailed skincare history and genetics, Lin is always looking for the root cause and correlation.
Lin steps back and thinks critically about new products, ingredients and treatments on the market — there’s no magic pill or overnight miracle when it comes to skin health and wellbeing. She believes healing is a multidimensional, individual journey that leads to coming home to your body.
For academic excellence and proficiency in Corneotherapy and holistic skincare, Lin has been a Featured Expert at Probeauty, Elite International School of Spa and Beauty Therapies, and VERVE Magazine.
Lin's Skin Transformation Results achieved with the Gold Standard Dermapen-4 Technology are among New Zealand's best and are featured in the International Training Manual by DermapenWorld and the New Zealand GOLD Dermapen Collection Book.

The skin is the largest organ of our bodies. It has it’s own immune system and microbiome.
Our fascination with the science of the skin’s microbiome has led us to centre our approach around Corneotherapy, focusing on the science behind the skin’s outermost layer — the Stratum Corneum, which forms the barrier function.
Corneotherapy treats the root of the problem, rather than superficial symptoms, while still being gentle, minimising irritating side effects often caused by topical pharmaceuticals.
Correct application of Corneotherapy techniques can help age proof your skin, manage rosacea and atopic skin conditions, treat inflammation and acne.
The key principles of Corneotherapy
Keeping the epidermis intact at all times — this ensures the skin’s immune system is not stimulated by damage or environmental stress.
Improve the diversity of the skin’s natural microbiome – this helps the skin self regulate and keep up its defences against damage and pathogens.

It’s more than just beauty.
