CRYSTAL KRUEGER of ST. CHARLES | Meet the Founder of Simply Crystal Electrolysis and Skin Care
A LOVE FOR HELPING OTHERS
After Losing Her Mother to Breast Cancer, this Mother of Two and Local Esthetician and Electrologist Is All About Supporting Women and Their Fight to Feel Beautiful
ST. CHARLES– When Crystal was in high school, she started to develop unwanted facial hair. Having no education or direction to follow, she looked into a more permanent solution for hair removal instead of continual waxing and tweezing.
Inspired by her own journey, Crystal became a licensed Esthetician and Electrologist and opened her own business. She discovered that many women suffered from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) which can leave them with excessive unwanted facial hair, weight gain, acne, and infertility. Knowing electrolysis is costly and the only proven method of permanent hair removal; Crystal decided to offer approximately $30,000/year in scholarship monies providing free treatments to selected women to help re-establish their self-esteem and confidence.
Crystal is all about supporting women and their fight to feel beautiful. As the daughter of a breast cancer victim, she also created a Breast Cancer Awareness program at the all-boys Marmion Academy in Aurora and spearheaded fundraisers which accrued $30,000+ for The LivingWell Cancer Resource Center in Geneva, her favorite charity.
Living out the essence of generosity daily, Crystal is demonstrating the art of selfless giving for her children, Brock and Brienna.
"Losing my mother to breast cancer was the most devastating loss in my life. I promised myself I would always raise awareness and money towards a cure for cancer; that I would keep her kindness and love circulating. The LivingWell Cancer Resource Center in Geneva is a wonderful place to be a part of because it exists to provide compassionate care that empowers, encourages, supports and provides hope to cancer patients and their families.
My family and I have spearheaded Pink fundraisers that help support The LivingWell’s mission. We held 5K runs, designed and sold T-shirts, bracelets, developed a special Pink Cookbook, and held amazing silent auctions and raffles. We also participate in the annual LivingWell Bridge Walk, and the Winter Gala. All which are critical parts of raising money for the resource center." –Crystal Krueger
