The main reason you should visit an esthetician is to get expert skincare advice. There is so much confusing skincare and product information available to the average consumer that it could be overwhelming. Estheticians are concerned with the health of the skin so if you have questions or concerns about the appearance of your skin an esthetician can help you navigate through the confusion and help you understand what ingredients and products are right for your skin.
An esthetician has knowledge and experience to help you make the right choices for your skin. She will analyze your skin under a magnifying lamp so she will see things that you cannot when you look in your bathroom mirror. Additionally, estheticians are used to looking at all skin types and skin conditions so they can let you know what they think of the health of your skin and help you plan a home care regimen that will improve the look and health of your skin.
She’s Trained in the Latest Treatments
Get recommendations and treatments from an esthetician that you can’t do on your own. By this, I mean treatments like microdermabrasion and chemical peels. These advanced treatments will get you more dramatic results in much less time.
She Knows Her Products
Estheticians can help you select skincare products that are not available in stores. Yes, there are great products out there that you can buy at the drugstore or department stores. But there are better quality products that you can only get through a licensed professional. And you would be surprised that not all of these skincare products are as expensive as you think. You can find great products at all price points.
She’ll Teach and Guide You
Lastly, you might see an esthetician once a month, but you take care of your skin twice a day, so go see an esthetician in order to develop a personalized home skincare regime. Your esthetician can go over the products you are using now, recommend new products, and write out the steps of your home care regimen. Getting the right home care products will make a tremendous difference in the upkeep of your skin and in its health and beauty.
I hope that helped give you a little insight into why it’s a great idea to see an esthetician! Have you ever been to one?
