Business of Beauty: Margaret de Heinrich

Margaret de Heinrich de Omorovicza

How did you get started in the beauty industry?

We started Omorovicza 10 years ago after being hugely impressed by the magical vitality of the Hungarian healing waters.

We're told there are more than 1,000 hot springs in Hungary, why are minerals so important for  great skin?

Minerals  are important for the skin in countless ways not only to maintain the health of the skin, but also to improve it. Just one example is the use of zinc - which has been used for centuries to help treat scarring victims. The dozens of minerals we use have been altered through a patented process of bio-fermentation so that they are able to be absorbed more effectively. A key benefit is to make skin more elastic and firmer.

Can you give us some insight into what a typical working day consists of for you?

With 4 children and a growing business, there is no typical day! However, on average, I start the day early as we have an 8 month old baby. I try to drop the children off at school before heading to the office, which is nearby, by design. The day is filled with meetings - for instance today I met with our HR Director about our 12 month strategic plan and also met with our creative team on our new design. I was home in the afternoon and did homework with the older girls.

What are some of your personal beauty regimens and grooming tips? What's on your TOP shelf?

These days I am a big fan of double cleansing and masks. I'm using our cleansing foam and thermal cleansing balm plus ultra moor mud mask and instant plumping cream.  

Is it a challenge having a professional and personal relationship with your spouse? What do you love about it and what could you live without?

I absolutely love it.. When things are flying, it's a joy to share this with someone you love. When it is not so easy, you intuitively know what the other person is feeling which makes you closer. 

With travel season here, what are your product picks and tips for keeping your skin fresh and hydrated? 

I'm loving our body oils this season and our BB cream which keeps my skin looking polished and glowing. I also keep our Queen of Hungary Mist close and spray throughout the day. My latest discovery, which can through a group of clients is to mix a drop of our miracle facial oil with a few drops of our Essence. Amazing!

Any last words for our DFW beauties?

I discover my beauty by doing, not just by being.
