The start of his career • “It was my encounter with acne as a young man that became the catalyst for my career in skin care. At the time I resided in Jakarta, Indonesia where I worked as a show dancer and model. Lagita, a local esthetician, put me under healing touch and cleared up my complexion with her natural treatments. As a result, my lifelong fascination with skin care began, having witnessed for myself the transformational powers of skin when treated correctly. ” - Taken from http: //www. olehenriksen. com/meetole. aspx
