Innovators in Medicine: Healing Is ‘Purpose in Life’ for Bare Beauty’s Lindsey Nguyen

Lindsey Nguyen Aesthetic-Wellness Specialist and Owner of Bare Beauty Spatique

Tell us about your medical practice and your specialty. I am a licensed aesthetic-wellness specialist. Bare Beauty Spatique — an aesthetic-wellness boutique spa — was created on the principle that one need not connect with a place, but with an experience. Every one of our services offers a transcendent experience through the art of energy-focused human connection and wellness.

Why did you choose to become a healthcare professional in this area? From a very young age, I have felt that my purpose in life was to be a healer. I always envisioned an experience that would make people feel transformed and to feel beautiful, not only physically, but emotionally and mentally—to create a holistically spiritual impression that transcends the physical.

In what way have you been an innovator on the cutting edge of your field? It really comes down to my approach. When my clientele leave my space, they do feel great about the services they received, yes; but they also leave feeling enlightened — like they learned something, whether it’s a practical approach to their own self-care or a spiritual revelation. When they enter my space they give the gift of themselves and allow themselves to be open and vulnerable, journeying through abstract self-reflection, experiencing transcendence to finally … emerge blissful.

What’s the most rewarding part of your work? The trust my clients gift me.

What do you hope your patients tell others about you? “Bare Beauty is a revelation!” Haha! But seriously, simply that people can feel completely at ease when they come to us — that they truly feel a human connection.

Duos, Trios and Teams: ‘Next-Generation’ Mother-Daughter Leppert Duo Debuts

Clare Leppert and Clementine, the Cavachon. Leigh Leppert and Benny, the Bernedoodle.

HOW DID YOU come together as a team? This fall, we are celebrating the introduction of an exciting real estate collaboration between Clare Leppert, longtime Houston Realtor®, and daughter Leigh Leppert. Clare shared a 20+ year real estate partnership with her mother, Bette Carpenter, until Bette’s death in 2016. Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career. We are excited to re-create the next generation of a mother-daughter duo at Compass!

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
