Bester, the entrepreneurial energy, heart and soul of Best Body Skin, grew up in the Vaal Triangle. After high school he relocated to Pretoria, to study Jazz clarinet and piano and after qualifying, joined the South African Police Band as permanent member.
Dramatic changes followed after he made the bold decision to change industries and introduce South Africa to a controversial new product that he believed in, despite massive opposition: the non-surgical treatment of frown lines and wrinkles. And today, 20 years later, this treatment is still one of his top sellers and Hardus Bester a respected authority and admired pioneer in the South African aesthetics industry.
"There is no secret to my success," says Bester. “I’ve always maintained that beauty is not about appearance alone, but rather about holistic well-being: what you see comes alive when coupled with a person’s attitude towards life and emotional well being.”
Bester is increasingly in demand as speaker on the topic of Self Realisation and Entrepreneurship and confidently invites you to arrive as a client with a problem, and soon turn into a friend and partner with a fresh perspective and an infectious confidence. O, and all of that, while effortlessly looking smoking hot too.
A colourful career in industries like retail, hospitality and aviation on three continents has prepared Charl for his demanding responsibilities, behind the scenes here at the clinic. Charl is a meticulous planner, whose astute business acumen ensures the smooth running of the Best machine.
Always the optimist, his unwavering belief that things can only get better, was exactly the kind of attitude Hardus was looking for when he recruited him. Charl runs a tight ship and regular clients will pay testament to his professional, effective methods and attractive, cool-calm-and-collective demeanour.
