Kathryn Khoo, RATIONALE Luminary
For Kathryn Khoo, the idea of a daily ritual devoted to self-care was just another part of family life. After adopting her own skincare routine at four years of age, Khoo, the daughter of a dermatologist and nurse, and the granddaughter of an avid sunscreen user, cites this multi-generational influence as the reason for her appreciation of skin vitality and her lifelong commitment to sun protection.
Those early learnings also sparked a drive in Khoo to carve out a career for herself as a Plastic Surgery + Cosmetic Nurse Specialist and Business Manager. It’s a unique profession that Khoo has defined over the past decade as she’s worked alongside Melbourne’s top plastic surgeons—and fostered her relationship with RATIONALE Founder Richard Parker.
Taking her place in this year’s illustrious Luminary Campaign line-up, we quizzed Khoo about the positives of ageing, her weekly ritual for relaxing and her proudest achievement to date.
