Nowdays, there’s really no excuse for not taking care of your skin. The secrets to excellent skincare and preventing the signs of aging are no longer secrets, which is great for you (and us)! While there are basic treatments and daily rituals you can be doing to ensure your skin retains its spring, including a regular visit to an esthetician is becoming even more important! Why? We’ll tell you.
What is Esthetics, and What is an Esthetician?
We know you’re likely washing, moisturizing, and doing everything you can for your skin, but that doesn’t mean that estheticians aren’t still crucial to proper skin care. For some people suffering with severe acne, rosacea, or other skin ailments just moisturizing and removing makeup before sleeping isn’t going to be a cure-all.
Though the secrets of skincare being out in the world can be a positive thing, it can also be a negative thing for these types of people. Rather than seeing a professional esthetician to solve their problem, they may choose to just follow the latest skincare tips they found online.
Regular visits with licensed and/or certified esthetician can help you watch for skin inconsistencies and alert you to any red flags that may require further treatment with a dermatologist, who can prescribe proper treatment. Estheticians can also perform services like waxing, microblading, facials, and other beautifying practices. Click the image to learn exactly what an esthetician is, and what they can do for you!
Have You Done Your Homework?
Understanding how an esthetician might help you is important. Equally important is knowing when to visit an esthetician, and when to visit a doctor. An esthetician is trained to help you not only notice, but diagnose any mysterious “beauty marks” on your skin. They may be able to tell right away that it’s not a big deal, or they might recommend you visit a doctor and have it removed. After spending a summer in the sun, many men and women may find that they want to go visit an esthetician to help keep their skin its healthiest.

Your Esthetician Will Thank You!
Not all skin care requires a visit to the esthetician’s office! Some of the things you read online can be true about skincare regimens, but it is still safer to consult with an esthetician about a specific regimen for yourself. Meeting regularly with your esthetician can help you track your skin’s progress and you can both be excited about the health of your skin, plus together you may prevent future ailments.
Something to try out are these organic and natural facials. These should be used sparingly (about 1-3 times a week), but you’ll certainly want to use them more than that!
- Wash your face twice a day
- Remove any makeup before sleeping
- Wear sunscreen
- Drink water
- Moisturize daily
By following these basic tips you may find that your skin retains that natural bounce and smoothness. To ensure you’re doing the best for yourself make sure you visit an esthetician to confirm your routine is working!
