A lot of people who go for skincare and beauty treatments regularly will tell you that the best part of it is the wonderful feeling of someone else taking care of you and pampering you, for a change.

702 listener Annerie Reyneke nominated beauty salon Bio Techniques Skincare Clinic for the 702 & Sage One Small Business Awards 2015.

Annerie says the owner of Bio Techniques Skincare Clinic treats her like the most important person in the world. She says Portia takes her time to listen and provide skincare advice.

Bio Techniques Skincare Clinic's vision is to be one of Pretoria’s most luxurious, yet cost-effective, skin and body care facilities.

Bio Technique Skincare was founded only in May 2015 and specialises in several skin and body care treatments, ranging from head massages to pedicures.

702's John Robbie spoke to Portia Nxhlanga, owner of Bio-Techniques Skincare Clinic.

Portia says that she worked as a beautician for six years. She saved every month, bought equipment and started her business.

Having gone through the struggles of retaining staff and not reaching sales targets, she says she has learnt a lot.

She currently employs four people and aims to employ 50, which she hopes to train and empower.
