As CEO and Founder of O Skin Med Spa, Olivia Quido-Co has devoted 16 years into making women feel and look beautiful. Armed with a deeply-rooted passion for skin esthetics, her holistic approach to beauty and life has brought her success as a top-rated esthetician, entrepreneur, women’s advocate and Christian philanthropist. “Ms. O,” as most people call her, started her career as a California-licensed esthetician inside a leased spare room in a beauty salon in Artesia, CA in 2003.
Undaunted by the pressures of being new in the industry, she zealously honed her skills in the confines of an eight-by-six-feet space while learning the ropes of running a spa. Her resilience and determination paid off as word spread about her talent and work ethic. She has since opened O Skin Med Spa, the most sought-after Filipino-owned medical spa in Southern California and a favorite among both Filipino beauty queens and American actresses and musicians. Olivia is the recipient of honors such as the Woman of the Year award, AARP’s Top 8 Women Entrepreneurs in LA, Top 100 Filipinos in the USA, and a Mayor’s Award for Entrepreneurs inLos Angeles. For the last ten years, she has starred in her own TV beauty segment “Beauty by O” on The Filipino Channel (TFC). In 2011, Olivia launched her own skincare line, Olivia QuidoSkincare, which quickly attained a global following. Using top of the line ingredients from different parts of the world, Olivia’s products have earned a reputation for dramatically replacing surgery for curing certain skin conditions, revolutionizing the use of topical products as a non-invasive alternative.
Already a favorite among its Hollywood clientele, Olivia QuidoSkincare made its red carpet debut at the Emmy AwardGifting Suite both Daytime and Primetime Awards where stars, producers, media outlets, bloggers, and influencers experienced it firsthand. Olivia and her journey are a classic success story told and retold in the Filipino-American community. From battling acne as a teenager and discovering her passion for esthetics to growing her brand and eventually becoming a household name, Olivia’s quintessential story of an immigrant fulfilling her American dream has inspired thousands of Filipinos worldwide. As a way to give back to the community, she is actively involved in women’s empowerment advocacy, using her profession to uplift and encourage women from different walks of life. Olivia and her family are active donors to the House of Moses, an international child welfare ministry for orphaned and abandoned children, and Joyce Meyer ministries. They are also faithful supporters of several church planting and evangelism ministries in the Philippines.
