Summer is just around the corner, and we’re feeling peachy.Speaking of peaches, we’re so excited to introduce our Gold Girl for May, Kirsten Ostgard!
Kirsten Ostgard wants you to know that you don’t need to be perfect to be worthy. That’s why she named her skincare studio Peaches Aren’t Perfect: to remind her clients that you can be imperfect and beautiful at the same time. Her goal is to make her clients feel empowered throughout their treatments, and we can tell you that she really reallydoes.
When she’s not giving out-of-this-world facials, Kirsten is crushing it as a mom to her 3-month-old baby, Bodhi. She shares adorable pictures of him on her Instagram with captions about motherhood that feel like a virtual hug – woman to woman.

Where are you from?
I’m originally from Seattle, but I’ve been in Salt Lake City for 6 years.
Tell us about what you do.
I am the founder and owner of Peaches Aren’t Perfect, a mini med-spa where I offer facials, skincare products and positive affirmations! My goal when I founded my business was to create a space where women felt inspired to love the skin they’re in no matter what.
Do you have any pets or kids?
I do! I have a 3-month-old baby boy named Bodhi and a 9-year-old pit rescue named Gibson. They are my everything.
What is your favorite beauty product these days?
I am currently loving the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter. It gives you the perfect base for your makeup and makes your skin glow.
When did you get into fitness?
When I was younger, I played soccer and tennis, and I started lifting weights in 2006. I have always loved being active and feeling powerful through fitness.
When do you feel most confident?
I love the feeling after you’ve conquered a hard workout. After I do a tough session (like HIIT) and I’m really sweaty, I feel accomplished and fierce!
What is your best confidence tip?
No one is you, and that is your superpower. I used to worry that I wasn't enough; that I was too sensitive, too emotional, too everything. Now, I realize that it's my gift!
What is your favorite Gold Elite Apparel piece?
I will always & forever be a die-hard fan of the Gold Elite Classic Venus Leggings.
