We had the good fortune of connecting with Ali Acosta and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ali, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I started North County Skin Solutions out of necessity to help solve the devastating issue of acne. Whether you’re struggling with teenage acne or you’re in your 30’s and acne has popped up out of no where, I can help. As someone who has struggled with acne my entire life, I know how detrimental it can be to ones self esteem and confidence. I set out to create a solution through research, trial and error, and years of practice that has great success and has changed lives through a holistic internal approach.

What should our readers know about your business?
Some say acne is the downfall of estheticians because it is so hard to tackle. I have created a niche market where I specialize in everything acne. Acne safe products, food, supplements. You name it, I can tell you how it relates back to acne. I am so proud of the work I have achieved in giving people their confidence back through clear skin.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
In my opinion, the two best things about San Diego are the beach and food. We have the most incredible view points, beaches, and restaurants.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to thank my family and friends for the constant support and mentorship through this time of being a new business owner. It hasn’t been easy but it was doable because of the people I had by my side. I’d like to also thank my loyal clientele for sticking with me and encouraging me to pursue starting my own business.
