Have you ever gotten a facial on a whim? Maybe you were given a gift certificate or had a little free time and desired a bit of pampering. Is the thought of getting a facial something new to you? I was recently asked why I personally felt someone should get regular facial treatments and it made me more aware that this question exists. I have been in the beauty industry for well over 10 years and good skincare practices are simply part of my daily life.
What is an esthetician and what can they do for you? An esthetician is a skincare professional that is trained to perform facial and body treatments to enhance the skin’s appearance and overall health. This training consists of many hours of theory, hands on practical work, as well as extensive ingredient and product education. In my opinion, the basis and beginning of any esthetician + client relationship is a thorough consultation discussing personal concerns and goals with an evaluation of current skincare products. Is your current routine working for or against you? There are so many products on the market and it can be overwhelming to say the least. In my experience, clients will bring in bags and even buckets of products, most of which aren’t what their skin really needs. If your skin isn’t balanced, it very well could be from products that just aren’t right for you. It certainly isn’t uncommon to uncover that new clients are overspending on products that do nothing to benefit their skin. Awesome products don’t have to cost a fortune! My clients have access to me 24/7 by Facebook, email, phone, and text and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Can the salesperson at your local department or drug store offer that level of customer service? Not usually. My point is, estheticians genuinely care about you and your skin. We are dedicated to helping you achieve your skincare goals. Maybe your desire is to just come in for fresher skin and relaxation. That is certainly fine but know that good estheticians want a relationship and to see you more than once a year. Many things affect our outer appearance on a daily basis such as: changes in season, dietary intake, stress, hormones, medications, etc. which can lead to unhappy skin.
Get the most out of your next facial visit by knowing what it is you want to achieve and tapping into the knowledge of your esthetician. Passionate estheticians will welcome the opportunity to build a solid relationship that lasts through the years!
