Dior Skincare Ambassador Joanna Czech on Devices, Influencing, and How to Take Care of Your Neck

Dior Skincare Ambassador Joanna Czech

In our series Behind the CurtainTM, we get the scoop on the routines, careers, and more of those working so hard behind-the-scenes to make celebrities look stunning. Here, we feature Joanna Czech, celebrity esthetician and Dior’s® new skincare ambassador.

Perhaps you know Joanna Czech from her Instagram® account, which now boasts nearly 100,000 followers. Or maybe you follow one of her clients, like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston, Michelle Williams, or Rooney Mara. Her clientele list reads like a Who’s Who of Hollywood, and for good reason: Czech delivers results. A pioneer in the skincare realm, the Dallas-based esthetician has been incorporating a combination of LED lights, ultrasound, microcurrents, cryotherapy, and intensive facial massage into her treatments for 30 years.

There’s no cute backstory behind Czech’s rise to the top. Rather, her career is the fortunate result of a setback. “I wanted to apply for medical school, but couldn’t pass physics,” she recalls. So, while she retook her physics coursework, she enrolled at a beauty institute in her native Poland, where she learned the anatomy of the nail plate and wrote a 117-page paper about framing the eyes. She was hooked. Physics — and that career in medicine — soon fell by the wayside.

Things seem to have worked out. Not only is Czech constantly traveling for clients and working from her New York City and Dallas studios, but just last year, Dior® named her the brand’s new skincare ambassador. We caught her just before the whirlwind of awards season to learn more about her approach to skincare.
